    Default Dropped iphone

    I have a jailbreaked & unlock (3g 8Gb iphone) to Vodafone using yellowsn0w. I always had good signal (5 bars).

    Last week I dropped now my phone about 2 feet to the ground. Now it says "no service". When I go to Reset Network settings, I get 5 bars and then they drop off one by one to zero and then no service. Where the 3g symbol is I have a circle and I keep loosing the signal. When I go to network selection sometimes Vodafone is not there but Meteor and O2 is.



    Currently I am on Version 2.2 (5G77) & Modem Firemware 2.28.00.

    Did the drop cause the loss of signal, all other functions (ipod, internet work).



    Regards



    Donough

    Try disabling the 3G and see if you get the signal BARS or not.
    If you are seeing the circle then I think that means it is trying to get the network, but 3G strength is not good.

    I have done this, I get the bars back but then they drop. Sometimw I have the signal for 2-3 hours and then I loose it, othertimes for 5 minutes.

    What about restoring phone, but it seems to be more of a hardware problem. I was thinking of removing the cover to check if any of the connector are loose. Is there an antennae connector on the phone that could become loose. It's strange that the signal is the only problem form the Drop.

    if you dropped the phone..wouldn't that be your answer to your own question rather than a restore?
