    hey everyone,
    My dad has been using his iPhone 7 Plus overseas in India while having T-Mobile service. He has an appropriate plan and coverage, and has not been getting consistent service.

    The temporary solution he found, is to keep resetting his network settings. The phone will then receive service for 15-20 mins, then drops out to "No Service" again until he resets his network settings again.

    He tried putting his T-Mobile SIM card in his old iPhone 6, and received consistent service right away with no issues. He has not experienced the same "No Service" issue since he has switched phones which was over 24 hours ago.

    I plan to make an appointment at the Apple Store upon his return. Is it likely that they would replace his phone?

    My co-worker had this problem. His iPhone would say no service on and off. He has T-Mobile also. I
    should ask him how it was resolved.

    I think the trick you need for t-mobile to work internationally is to turn on roaming.

    Is this the Qualcomm vs Intel model thing at work? Model A1661 vs A1784?
