The phone continually searching and will not let me activate to the server. Rush to the store to fix the damaged builtin antenna. I have insurance on my iphone and was considering going into sprint today to ask for a replacement. Then restart the phone with the sim card in and Hey Presto! Thanks for the post and all the comments. I had previously tried every other fix online and taken the phone to local mobile repair tech who said it is completely knackered, just use it as an ipad thats all its good for now.
When I connected to iTunes, it was waiting for the ios 6. I have also neglected to swap mine due to dropped gmail exchange support. Hence, constant connectivity is an essential requirement for the most of us. I go through all these steps. Any assistance will be highly appreciated. I cant guarantee the relationship between find my iphone and cell reception. Most users might run towards the service center in order to get rid of this problem.
In most cases the phone thinks the date is 1970 Jan 1st. The age of social media does not allow a moment of absence. How can I check if the antenna switch is broken, or alternatively how can I check that the power amplifier is defective? Low and behold it started working again. Thank you for the suggestion! Carrier option missing from iPhone settings. Since downgrading is typically discouraged by most carriers and Apple itself, users may just have to wait for the next firmware update containing fixes.
But to my disappointment nothing seems to be working. First it suddenly turned off. I press home+power buttons for ~10 secs, and it turns on. It works fine with the WiFi. Now have a look at the signal bar and learn whether the search issue has been resolved. If you need help finding your wireless carrier's service page, use the Apple carrier-support article for getting carrier related support. And I am in a different location than him and also traveled a bit this weekend.
Any assistance will be highly appreciated. Hi wrote: My iphone 5S was working well until this morning after powering-up. There are several possibilities, most of them very simple. I think a lot of people are like that. I tried resetting network etc etc.
This one worked for a while, but yesterday I got the searching problem again to my surprise. I have tried powering it off, powering it on, turning on airplane mode, switching to airplane mode and back, to no avail. Talked to my provider and Apple. I have a co-worker who recently got an iPhone 5 and i pointed out what mine does, he also noticed it on his. I can be sitting there with my phone, my husbands and an iPad. Let your battery go completely dead until iphone 5s switches itself off I was using mine like an ipad at the time , put charger in and wait till it switches itself back on I put charger in after about 10 minutes without thinking Id get my phone back network and all.
Suppose, if you found your iPhone stuck in search mode due to software error then carry out the following methods to resolve the problem immediately. During that time, I've flown to different states with someone else who has an iPhone 5 with Verizon and who has not experienced any issues at all. The Problem may be also because of constant updating of the firmware. First clean the plate with a cotton cloth gently. Also check that the dock connector piece hasn't come apart at the seam and lost the spring loaded pin which is supposed to contact a small pad on the motherboard - too tight screws or the wrong screw can cause the board to bend just enough to break that contact because it lifts away from the pin also. That article might be specific to text messages, but you can follow the same steps to exclude or include certain apps from your searches.
The iPhone 5 does not have a common carrier signal failure issue if that is the question you were trying to get asked. Step 1: Tap the Mail icon. Message was edited by: Admin Moderator jriphonehelp, I'm sorry to hear you have been having trouble getting service. I presume it is, as folks have said, a loose connection. Hers was 1 year and 4 months at the time. This is my exact experience with my 5 on Bell. I just wanted to make sure that refurbished units aren't bad in any way seeing as I just paid for my 5 just two months ago.
Thus, I consider these as potential solutions. Anyways the only solution that constantly works for me is te following: 1 Reset Network Settings. If not are you still under warranty because whether you use your phone for data or not it should not happen and I would take it in before your warranty ends. I have a co-worker who recently got an iPhone 5 and i pointed out what mine does, he also noticed it on his. What else could I try? Please refer to the above steps, if necessary. Admitedly im an android guy so the bulk of my usage is my Note 2, but i have to carry an iPhone for work due to the business im in. If so, could you remove the case and powercycle the device.
