    This has been happening frequently. I'm not sure if it's my cellular provider but it's getting pretty annoying. It happens about 5 times a day, especially when I'm posting something to this forum or browsing the net.
    Does anyone have this problem?
    I've tried turning airplane mode off then on, it helps for a few minutes then again I would loose reception. ๐Ÿ˜’

    I am not having any issues with my 5S. Perhaps a restore and/or a trip to the apple store genuis bar is in order if it does not resolve itself

    Haven't seen any problems myself. Maybe have your carrier swap SIM cards.

    Not having any issues with my 5S, however, I have read about some people over at MR who are complaining that the reception on the 5S is not as good as it was with their iPhone 5. Some tried to restore and said that it helped while others were doing what you did and put their 5S in Airplane mode when this problem occurred. I would try taking your SIM card out for a few minutes and pop it back in making sure that it is seated in the tray properly. I had this problem once when I had my 5 and found out when I was switching the SIm card back to the 5 from the Nexus 4, I must not have aligned it right the first time. It was fine after I put it back in again.

    Uh oh, better go get a Nexus 5! The best and most revolutionary smart phone this week!

    I've personally not had any issues with reception...in fact, my LTE service on this phone is quite substantially better than my iPhone 5 was.

    When I was using the space grey model I was having reception issues. I went to get a sim swap and it was a little better but still not as great as it is on my iPhone 5.

    Do the signal loss events happen at random times and places, or is there a pattern emerging with commonality based upon time, place, or both?

    These events happen at random times and in any place.

    Before you hit the apple store I would suggest swapping the sim first. It's free and fast. That way you can rule that out without using up an AppleCare visit.

    Haver you tried "Resetting Network Settings" under General - Reset. I know some people had a problem with iMessage and that quick fix that was suggested was to reset the network settings. Maybe that problem was that first thought.

    Can your carrier reset the signal to your phone? You'll have to call them on another phone for them to do it though.

    Usually you have to call them from another phone. They usually ask to turn off the device while they wipe and reload the profile onto your phone.

    If you are on Verizon, they said that with so many people upgrading to phones with LTE, some people are temporarily being signal downgraded. Also was this happening on other phones in same areas?

    If it were me I would take it to the Apple Store and have them take a look at it. Good luck as I know that signal issues are very frustrating, one trick you could try from the good old days is to hold down your power button and home button until you see the apple logo, when the apple logo disappears release both buttons. Sometimes a hard reset can fix connectivity issues however it's more than likely a problem with your SIM or phone itself.
