    Anyone have an idea what percentage of U.S. iPhone 7's have actually experienced the "no service" issue (that Apple will repair)? 1%? 10%? 50%? I'd like to upgrade from my iPhone 6, but this makes me hesitant.

    How could we possibly know?

    Apple has identified the issue, how many devices were affected and will replace them free of charge.

    Does not exist. Because every darn iPhone before Xs have had perfect cell reception. Xs is the first of its kind to ever have any cellular issues.



    Reading this forum lately has been so informative. The above statements are what i have gathered from such exhaustive discussions.

    I personally haven't experienced it on my 7 Plus. (AT&T)

    Apart from iPhone 5, I've got 'em all, and this is the first time ever I noticed the "no carrier" problem on one of the Apple phones.
    I'm talking about the Xs : I'd say that once on two / three times, if the phone is in a truly "no service" zone, once the spot is cleared and I'm in a 4 bars 3G/4G place, the Xs doesn't get "conscious" again.
    Not even switching to airplane mode helps, it just remains like that, with "no carrier" : 100% of the times, rebooting the phone fix the problem.
    Any hint please ? I've never sent back any apple device so far...

    Yes, and since someone said "this is a an iPhone 7 issue only, I promptly reply it is not : also Xs is flawed.

    Twofold : 1) testimonying that my 7 plus did not have the issue ( as other reported ), and 2) that my Xs has it, so maybe, and I say maybe, given the symptoms it not only bound to 7plus.

    To clarify, the “No Service” problem Apple has identified is only for the 7 and not the 7+. Moreover, it’s not for intermittent no service situations. It’s when the iPhone 7 goes to “No Service” and stays there, even after rebooting or restoring. It’s a hardware fault. I just don’t know how widespread it is.

    So much for the almighty Qualcomm modem - the Intel modem models are not affected by this!

    Buy an iPhone 7 from the Apple refurbished store. It'll definitely be working correctly.
    Refurbished iPhones (in my opinion) are better than "new" iPhones of the same model because the refurbished phone has gone through extensive testing and nothing will slip through. Quality control on brand new iPhones is a crapshoot. Lemons slip through all the time.

    Great idea! Unfortunately the only 7's they list now are 256GB silver and gold at $549. I may wait them out for a better selection.

    All I know is that the Apple store will not deal with the "no service" issue on my 7 unless it happens to occur while I am in the store! Have made numerous calls to Apple Care who tell me my phone is affected with the "no service" bug, and that Apple will repair or replace, but when I get to the store and it is working, they allege they can't do anything about it. REALLY FRUSTRATED with Apple right now!
