    This is about the strangest thing (or maybe it isn't?)
    Its a friends 3GS (no history before he acquired it from his cousin with a broken screen and updated it to ios5), its on ios5 and maintains a good signal unless you put it in your pocket...about 1 in 10 times you take the iphone out of your pocket and its showing No Sim.
    I've tried restoring as a new iPhone, changed sim card several times and even transferred the mainboard into a different 3GS chassis. Had 3G on and off and location services on and off. Googled for an answer but nothing seems to help.
    Now I'm lost for ideas...anyone help?

    In case anyone is interested it seems like the battery was a bit flakey.
    A new one seems to have resolved the problem.
