Losing Signal/No Service
My wife has been having issues with her iPhone 3GS for about the last week or so. She will all of a sudden lose signal and it will go to "Searching" and then to "No Service" and eventually go back to signal and repeat itself again. When there is no service she can't sent SMS or access the internet. I tried calling AT&T which sent me to Apple Support who told me our phone support is expired, so trying out TiPb instead. Has anyone had this issue lately or ever?
It's been jailbroken with PwnageTool, running 3.1.2, Carrier: AT&T 5.6, Modem Firmware: 05.11.07

yeah I was thinking that would be a way I'd need to go. Is Spirit the way to go these days? And should I stick with 3.1.2? (I'm normally a Windows/BlackBerry guy, but my wife insists on her MacBook/iPhone so I'm making myself become savy on them as well as my own stuff)

Maybe it was something that she recently installed. I had that problem a few times and i unistalled the last few apps I dl and did the trick. Other than that, since u don't need an unlock, restore and upgrade to 3.1.3 in iTunes and that will work. U can rejailbreak with Spirit and it won't be tethered. Goodluck
I'll plan on backing it up for her and starting over first with 3.1.2 and then if it still works up go with 3.1.3. Probably do it tomorrow since it's been a heck of a day, but if anyone else has some input through the night please let me know.

I live on Long Island in central Nassau County where I've had 3G coverage since purchasing my 3GS last June. Phone has not
been unlocked or jailbroken. Anyway, in the last 2 weeks, I've solely been on EDGE within a 2-3 mile radius of my house. Called AT&T, and the customer service rep (I'm assuming that he knew what he was doing) informed me that there are 4 towers within a 10 mile radius from me that are "degraded" and that could be the reason why service has been iffy. Also set up a Genius Bar apponitment at the Apple Store and the Genius told me that AT&T is "resetting" their network to prepare for the massive number of activation come June 24th.
What do you all think?
