If there is a bad signal, any phone will do this. You can try to reset your network settings, go to settings, general, reset, reset network settings.

Your iPhone 5, like every cell phone in existence, can't receive calls and messages when not receiving an adequate signal from the cell towers. Getting angry won't help that.

I can understand only what you tell me - no one here is telepathic. When posting a problem, post all information about it. What happens in vagueness, stays in vagueness.
If resetting network settings doesn't help, try these steps, as needed:
1. Reset phone (no data loss): Press both home and power buttons for at least 10 seconds, releasing when the Apple logo appears.
2. Restore phone in iTunes using a backup
3. Restore in iTunes as new, without using a backup.
