    Everything works on my iphone except reception.... I was on a 3 hour drive when I noticed no reception. It never came back.. AT&T gave me a new Sim card and obviously I tried restarting it and I did a restore but nothing. GPS/Wi-Fi and everything else works.. Has anyone heard of this? I would like to change my new Ipod-Touch back into an Iphone....

    Did it activate after u did the restore thru iTunes?
    If it gave u that popup that your phone is activated and still no signal bring it to Apple.

    Something is messed up on AT&Ts part of the system is my guess.
    Call them up and ask to talk to tech support.
    Hope you don't get a clueless rep, if you do hang up and call back.

    Yes they didn't really try to help you there besides brush you off instead of taking time to figure it out. Just dial the AT&T 1800 number and speak with a customer support rep. If they can't get it have them transer u to tech support. I had the same issue with my 3GS not activating and took 6 trys to get someone from AT&T that knew what they were doing.
