If you are sick and tired of your iPhone displaying ‘No Service’ or ‘Searching…’ in the top left hand corner, due to signal problems – join the discussion and have your say here.
On May 3rd I did an article entitled ‘Apple iPhone 3GS Or O2: Signal Issues?’, as I keep getting the message ‘No Service’ appear on my iPhone 3GS. Now I was not sure if the problem was with the device or my network service provider O2.
However, from the comments I have received back on this issue, it would appear that the problem lies at the feet of Apple and their devices. A number of people replied who are experiencing the same signal problems and not all of them are on O2, the problem has been happening to some iPhone users on Orange/T-Mobile and AT&T in the USA.
Another thing that has come from the comments, is that the loss of signal is not just happening on the iPhone 3GS, but also iPhone 4. We all know that there was a signal issue with the iPhone 4 when it released, apply named the ‘Smart Phone grip of death’. However, this latest issue does not seem to stem from that.
Someone that commented back under the alias iPhone user, stated:
“Yes, I have the exact same problem. I thought perhaps I was the only one. Try turning off your 3G via settings > General > Netrowk > Enable 3G: off. This actually works really well and saves your battery. Its a shame though because I used to get full signal on O2 and I too have an iPhone 3GS. I live within the Berkshire area, i have been having this problem for about 4 weeks now and I am confused as to if the fault lies within the actual iPhone itself or O2?
Please let me know if this helps.
Thanks for the advice, unfortunately, it did not work for me – but it may help others hopefully.
So I put this to you Apple – PLEASE SORT THE SIGNAL ISSUE OUT, your customers are getting more and more disgruntled with the service you are providing (no doubt this plea will fall on deaf ears, so unfortunately – it is business as usual). Please keep you comments coming in, as the saying goes ‘strength in numbers’, so one day Apple may decide to take notice of their customers rather than lining their pockets with our money. Can’t wait for my upgrade!
