My iPhone won't get a signal. If I try to make a call, in the top left hand corner it says 'searching', after a while it says 'call failed".
It is a virgin media SIM card and as well as being on virgin if I am somewhere where their signal isn't very good it apparently uses the orange network. I've spoken to a technician at Virgin but they don't know about Apple phones, although he did say my phone should be set to 'push' ... Whatever this is.
Virgins speel says "We already cover 99% of the UK population, and now you can also use your mobile on the Orange network, so you'll be able to stay in touch here, there and pretty much everywhere.
Your phone will automatically use the Orange signal, where there isn't Virgin Media coverage."
When I go in 'settings .. General' and click on 'about' it says 'network not available'.
Also when in Settings there is a phone symbol and it says Carrier. If I click on this it gives me 5 options.... Virgin .... 3UK ....vodafoneUK ...o2 UK and virgin. If I click on any of these i get the message 'Network Lost', Your selected mobile network is no longer available'.
Whilst still in 'General', at the bottom is a title 'reset', if I click on that there is the ability to 'Reset Network Settings'. Again if I click that the message says 'this will delete all network settings, returning them to factory defaults'. Do you think that this is what I need to do? I don't want to lose any data?
