My iPhone just suddenly decided that it was not going to make phone calls or send text messages at all. Can someone please help with this problem?

iPhone OS 3.0.1

    I am in the uk on o2 and I have had the iphone 2 days and for the past 3 hours it has had no service. I tried hard reset, switching to airplane more for 10 seconds and taking out the sim and putting it back.

    NOTHING WORKS. I am considering replacing it.

    Is it just me?

    Have you checked with O2 to make sure there is not an outage in your area?

    Having similar issues here in the States on AT&T. Though not all the time for voice (but most of the time). Texting does not work. Can not make 75% of calls, usually times out... in multiple locations. AT&T was very nice and tried to help having me shut off 3g, wireless, BT etc... However nothing seems to be resolving the issues. The only info I got that was new to me was in order to have the phone retrieve network updates, it should be powered down for at least 1.5-2mins.

    I'm curious if the number of email accounts I have pushing to the phone could be a contributing problem? I have 1 Exchange Account for work, Yahoo, Gmail, MobileMe, and my ISP personal POP account (5 total). Anyone have thought's in this. Or should I go in and try to get a new SIM card or Replacement phone?

    Is it just me or did most of these issues crop up when the 3gS rolled out?

    I also have a brand new iphone 3GS and it doesn't send/receive text messages at all. Everything else works: voice calls, email, web, but not text messaging.

    I had the same problem with my iPhone not making calls and your solution worked! Thanks for sharing!
