    My iPhone has been showing "No Service" basically all day now and I can't send or receive calls. Anyone else experiencing this? It may be weather related as we had some freezing rain this morning and snow this afternoon/evening, but it doesn't seem to be bad enough to knock out cell phone service. I'd like to call AT&T and get the scoop from them, but the iPhone is my only phone so without it I can't make calls!
    So anyone else in the KC area or anywhere else having this problem?

    Ha ha, very funny. You sound like me before I came out here and discovered that Olathe was a suburb of Kansas City, not a hicktown in the middle of America's Heartland.

    Do you keep your phone on 24/7...

    'cause you can turn-off, then turn-on and 9 times out of ten it should be OK! Did you make any changes to your plan? :cool:

    See, this is why I love MR so much. There are so many people here that are smarter than I am. I did make some changes to my calling plan the other day, actually. And now that you say that I vaguely remember reading something somewhere about turning your phone off and then back on after making account changes. So I restarted it and, lo and behold, I'm getting signal again. Thanks, SFStateStudent. I owe you a cookie.

    Glad the info helped...

    'cause my "experience" with AT&T over the years regarding outages or the system not responding, has always been to "re-boot" or "re-start!" Heard it from the "horse's mouth" a million times, just wanted to pass it on! :cool:

    For all the hype about "Fewest Dropped Calls", I've never had a worse experience on another carrier with service and trying to make calls.

    I miss Verizon, best service of any carrier in my opinion. :(
