    Hi all,
    I have an iPhone 6 that has been giving me issues for a while. The phone initially began to randomly drop cellular service, and would not reconnect unless I took out the SIM card and reinserted it. Then, that stopped working, so I brought it to the Verizon store from which I bought it. They tried a new SIM card but it did not fix the problem. Because I had the phone for about 18 months, I no longer had a warranty with Apple, and the Verizon workers suggested I buy a new phone (which I did) because they believed Apple would not be very helpful.

    The phone will connect to Wifi, and when connected, iMessage works. The problem is getting the cellular service to work. Any suggestions? The Verizon workers said that they had seen this issue before with the iPhone 6 but they did not know how to fix it. The phone is in good shape aside from this issue so I would hate to no longer be able to maximize its utility.

    Sounds like it has a hardware fault.
    Bring it to an iphone repair shop to see what they can do and how much it would cost to fix.
