iPhone says no service even when I re-enter a service area. Any fix for this?

    The building I work in has many dead spots. When I walk back into a normal signal area it constantly will say No Service and I have to go toggle airplane mode. Ive tried restoring the phone(not as new though). Also got a new sim. Ive tried resetting network settings also. This is a replacement phone I got from Apple three weeks ago when my origional iPhone 5 screen started to die.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    EDIT. I just realized this is probably in the wrong forum. Sorry guys.

    I find my phone is the same. I either have to wait a few minutes for it to reconnect or toggle airplane mode on and then off

    Thanks. It stinks though. My first iPhone 5 had no issue with this at all. I keep missing texts and calls from my wife which is not cool at all.

    I figured I would update this post. I had to get my phone replaced by Apple again and this unit is working correctly so problem kinda solved.

    Happens to me too sometimes. But not all the time. I just do what you do, turn Airplane mode off an on and it reconnects right away. I think it's just a timing thing, or something. Who knows.

    I've never had it happen to me, but could it possibly be that you are entering a busy area and all cells are taken momentarily?

    I'd try a hard reset though and see if that helps. Hold the power and home buttons until you see the apple symbol.

    With AT&T, this has happened to me using different brands of phones, not just with the iPhone. I had a Blackberry, for instance, that would drop out when I drove through a certain area and if I didn't remember to toggle the radio off/on I would miss calls and notifications.

    I have no idea why this happens, but I can say that I don't think it is an iPhone issue. At least I know it wasn't with me since it happened with other manufacturers.
