Unlocked 1.02 and Tmobile signal issues?
So I have my phone for about a month now and things were great. it was jailbroken, unlocked with the easy GUI unlocker, I was able to install files, my own ringtones etc.
I purposely kept it at 1.02 until further work was done with the unlockers and jailbbreaks for 1.1.1 so that wasn't an issue.
Then all of a sudden last week, calls started dropping. THe other caller would sometimes go directly to voicemail. The signal would wildly fluctuate between full and none/no service. I couldn't understand what was happening. I put the sim in my treo 650 and used it without a hitch. I put it back in the iphone and within minutes it didn't work as well.
I wanted to take it in to Apple but of course with the unlock, they would say it is a software issue. So now with the new virginizer software I was able to reset the phone to original state and then upgrade to 1.1.1 firmware. I then used an ATT go phone sim to use the phone and I have not had any signal issues as far as I can tell all evening.
Tomorrow I was supposed to go into apple to have them look at it.
My question is : Was this the unlock software that affected the signal? Did anyone else have similar issues? Should I get the phone exchanged and will they do it since there doesn't seem to be a signal issue currently?
any help is appreciated.
