    My wife has an iPhone 5 on the Sprint network. Last night, she couldn't get a cellular signal (it simply said "Searching..." in the top left corner). I tried the usual tricks, toggling airport mode, resetting network settings, soft reset, hard reset, nothing had any impact.

    I then also noticed that when you look at the Settings->General->About screen that the Network is listed as Not Available, rather than Sprint.

    Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Yeah, but I did a restore from backup last night and that seems to have fixed the issue.

    I was gonna suggest a SIM card or network issue but I guess you got it working again.

    It kind of makes me wonder what the problem was in this case.
