That's not the same problem your still getting a signal even with one bar, what we are taking about is that when you lose a signal and then walk to a place with a signal the iPhone 5 does not relock onto it and continues to say no signal and by powering down the phone or turning airplane mode on and off you get your signal back and the iPhone 5 locks on this is a software bug we hope and not a hardware problem as I hope this gets noticed by app,e and gets fixed ASAP in there next release.
Same here in Canada (Montreal)
I have to restart 3-4 times a day my phone that is terrible ist a phone not a ipod and i have a cell phone so my child or familly can join me if a emergercy happen bhut with that issue i cannot be join !!
I think that apple will have alot of return
Other issues with iphone 5
3G on wifi : even connected to wifi data use 3g
Not able to connect to wifi : even connected to wifi logo show 3g
I am having signal issues too. One moment i lose signal. And when i am back in area with service it still show one or no bars. ***... The worst phone ever. I bought an iphone 4 launch day. It had one problem. Steve jobs took care of it immediately even though he was on vacation. I have dropped wifi. Phone heats up. Scratches out of the box! Static line on keyboard. And muffled call audio. Lags everyonce and a while. Jesus.... Is it a coincidence that right after Steve jobs decided to leave the next phone comes out and its soo buggy in soo many ways. Reallly.. Apple. Like really. I loved u guys. Now I am not sure. **** right Tim cook you should applogies for not delivering world class product. U guys have swooped below windows phone in one shot! Find a fix asap!
Well it's been a week or more after I applied my fix
And the issue has not returned.
I can actually watch it go from No Service
To having a signal within seconds.
My pals who I work with in the same venues
Who applied the same fix also now have no problems.
And we all use a mix of providers.
Hello again dude,
Yea i did your fix and the problem hasnt come back for me either.
For all the people still complaining of this problem the answer is above on one of the other pages!!!
Reset your network settings and this fixes the problem
I've tried Arthur's recommended fix and it doesn't work for me. It's happening every day when travelling to and from work. It cannot be a long term fix as that would mean it would work for everyone. I'm glad it is working for most of you though :)
Give it another try Sam.
Everyone I've done it too worked, and most people here.
If your fault is that.. After loosing signal by going into a place that doesn't have coverage.
Then going 'back' into a coverage area your iPhone still displays 'NO SERVICE' untill you force it
By toggling airplane mode or rebooting the phone.
Then evidence suggests 'resetting network settings' should fix the problem.
The only downside to this fix is, you will have to retype passwords once more to previously known wifi hotspots
When attempting to reconnect to your home or office wifi, for example.
But they will be remembered as usal, untill sutch a time as you reset network settings again or force
To forget this network individually.
