I have been plagued with no service now on my iPhone 7 Plus 256GB since Saturday. Every now and then when I travel in the car for some distance it jumps up to 5 bars on 4G and my Notifications start alerting me of messages etc but if I then try and use the network for a phone call or browse the Internet I have nothing!!! Call Failed or Can't display this page etc.

Things I have tried to fix the issue with no success:

Powering off the device and turning it back on.
Soft reset device power button & volume down.
Removing the sim card and putting it back in.
Reset network settings.
Upgrade to iOS 10.0.2 Fresh Install
Upgrade to iOS 10.1 Beta 1 Fresh Install

I feel my only option now is to goto my local Apple Store with the device to at least make them aware of my issue just incase I should need it replaced.

There seems to be plenty of people in the same boat as me going by the posts on Facebook & Twitter.

If you're affected by this please list your model, capacity and network below as well as the iOS version.

Pardon my ignorance but does the UK use the Qualcomm chipset?

Strange. So maybe its an iOS issue that is impacting all our phones.

I would say most issues are software/firmware related yes, as are the battery issues for some users on iOS 10 as well.

I personally do not have any network issues on my iPhone 7 with the intel chipset here in the UK on the o2 network. It behaves just like my iPhone 5s always has.

Cheers

iOS 10.1 Beta 2 was the first thing that fixed my issue. Beta 3 is out now and working well so it looks like a fix has been found. Carrier settings are now 26.0

Not getting no carrier here on EE, but the signal is noticeably worse in low signal areas than with my 6S+ (same SIM), and also having problems when switching between towers causing data to stop working. Toggling airplane mode gets data going again. No different in Beta 3.
