Signal Loss with yellowsn0w
Here's my issue:
I am currently using
location: Detroit,MI USA
I have done everything (Quickpwn, yellowsn0w, etc.)and when I reboot via BossPrefs I get service for 30 secs-3min then signal goes from 5 bars down to "No Service"
I have used airplane mode, reboot method, take sim out/put back in. With each method same result...service for a short time then no service.:confused:
I have made calls and received calls during the brief times in service also sent texts and tested EDGE with Wi-Fi turned off. Everything worked but then I lose service.
I have searched high and low for any info but I only come across signal loss via SIM unlock and I have used software unlock.
I did find some posts where people had to get their iphones replaced. However I bought mine on craigslist and do not know if there is still warranty or if I can get replacement without having AT&T.
Has anyone else had this issue or know of anything at all I can do to retain service.
Thank you in advance.
try inserting the sim card to another unlocked phone
try inserting the "no service" sim card into another unlocked phone, wait for it to get a signal. Afterwards return the sim card back to the iphone. See if it will work.
I think the sim card somehow gets lost from the network after a long time of having no signal in a dead spot. For normal phones the sim can find its way back easily to the network when you go to a place with signal but with the iphone 3g it remains lost. So by inserting the "no service" sim card to another phone, it will be able to help it get in the network again.
