    Hi guys! I have a little issue here. I got my iPhone converted from black to white from this one local company. I bought the parts off of Amazon and it had good reviews. I then took it to my local shop where they installed it for me. The only issue right now is that my phone says I have No Service. Once and a while it will go from No Service to Searching....Though it never finds a network to join. I am able to join my WI-FI fine but not 3G or even Edge. I tried going to Settings-->General--->Reset--->Reset Network Settings. I also tried taking out the sim card and putting it back in. Still nothing. What can I do to fix this issue? Thanks for any help!

    If it happened right after you got it back from the shop, take it back and make them fix it.

    I would like to do that but, the shop is about a half-hour away which I could go over there but, it would be great if I could fix it myself.

    You'd need hardware skills, and going by the fact you had to get a shop to put new glass on for you, I'm assuming you don't have that. And the warranty's void now, so taking it to Apple is a no-go. Your only option is to get the shop to sort it out.

    Okay, I am going in tomorrow to have them look at it. My question though is this fixable? I don't really want to spend $200 to replace my iPhone through Apple. Also, while I was driving my iPhone went from No Service to having some cell phone coverage with 3G. I was able to surf the web a little before it went back to No Service. Thanks again for the help.

    100% fixable! Whoever installed your new casing probably forgot to attach the connectors to the iPhone's antennas.
