    Just recently my iPhone 5 has been struggling to get data from a cellular connection. I will have 1-5 bars with Edge, 3G, 4G or LTE and all of a sudden my phone can't do anything requiring data. It will just tell me could not connect or no data or whatever the app says when it can't connect to the Internet.

    The only thing that fixes it is a quick reboot and its running fine again. I tried just turning my cellular off and on again but doesn't seem to do anything.

    I thought at first that it was just my poor service were we were at for a couple weeks but we just went to Vegas for a couple days and it even happens with full service.

    I was wondering if anyone else has been experiencing this problem and if there is a way to fix it. It's not a huge deal but gets kinda annoying because I have to reboot a few times a day to fix this issue.

    Thanks,
    Brandon

    Try a restore and setup as new.
    If it keeps doing it you can get it replaced.

    I would rather not have to reset up all of my apps and stuff. I have had the same iPhone back up since my 3g haha. If the problem continues I will take it to Apple and hopefully they can fix it with a software update soon. I would rather not have to get a new phone.

    Up to you.
    Usually when you restore from backup you can inherit many bugs passed down from years and years of usage and backup on top of backup.
    Even if you bring it to Apple that's the first thing they will do is restore it and setup as new. If it works they will tell you not to restore from backup. If it doesnt they will just replace it.
