Well we are now on third Sims. So far we have been a bit over a week without signal loss.
A person in a EE shop told us that it was definitely a hardware issue with poor signal reception in the iphone 5 and 5S. We swapped the sims anyway though. Tried getting handset replaced for something else and we're told no way. So if problem keeps cropping up it will be a case of swapping for another iphone 5 until the end of the contract....
I just received a new iphone from apple, no improvement though. So this means I have to continue to try to get it switched until I am lucky enough to get one of the good ones? Does the 5c have the same problems? Otherwise I would try to get mine switched to that one, it is very exhausting to send phones back and forward all the time...
Think its the latest software. We have a 4s, 5 & 5s at work all on Vodafone & we repeatedly cannot access data or if the phone is called it goes straight to voicemail. Vodafone tech suggested we take the network off Auto & try another one for a minute or so & then put back to Auto. Apparently the phones are not regularly registering with the network - mine was over 8 days ago - which they need to do for good operation.
Hence my guess is Apple' software version 7 plus - prior to this we didn't have this issue & we've been using iphones for the past 5 years or so.
my phone was working fine,just 2 days ago I have updated iOS 7.1 and signals on phone disapeared. Now my network provide name apears but signals are disapeared.
I have done many time with reset network process but still no signals on my phone.
no body can contact me and neither I can call or send sms. I am getting panic now.
please do let me know the solution.
I have to Iphone's, 5 and 5s and haven't have any problems with them at all since I bought theese.
But when I updated thoose with 7.1 the problem occur immediate. resulting that the 5 got problem with timesync and lost wifi connection and I had to send it to support.
My 5s suddenly loose connection to mobile network and every call goes directly to the answering service, and the strange thing is that then I receive an SMS that I have messages at the answering service.
After at short restart I got connected again, but it still disturbing because I depending of the phone in my work.
