    Weird issue my wifes iPhone 5 has been having. About several times a day it will just start Searching for a signal. It will come back within 20 secs though.

    Had the SIM replaced and the hardware replaced and it still happens.

    I thought it might be a Network issue, but I have an iPhone 5 as well and we are both with the same carrier and this does not happen with my iPhone.

    I even swapped our SIMs and her iPhone will still Search for a network several times with my SIM installed.

    Could the hardware replacement have the same problem? lol

    Since you have already swapped phones with your phone and the problem goes away it's time to call/visit Apple. Replacing it should solve the problem.

    Problem has never gone away. The replacement I got has been doing the same, and I put my SIM in her phone and her phone would still Search for network.

    I guess I got unlucky with the second iPhone. Were heading to the Apple Store soon it seems like it.

    Seems strange as it has started recently.

    Let me know how the replacement works out. Same thing started happening to mine, which I've had for about a week and a half now. Random drops of data. Text messages, some send some don't. Using Tmobile. This was happening before and now after the update Monday.
