    Someone please help. I have an iPhone 6 AT&T that will get on a network and stay on it for a day or two and then drop. Then it goes into constant searching mode. I was on a two week work trip where I was flying to multiple places and the problem would persist. The solution that worked temporarily was resetting the network settings but that would only work once at each location until I moved onto the next. I have since reverted to a 5. Today, I swapped out the sims and reset the settings again and lo and behold, it captured signal again. The pesimist in me is waiting for it to drop again. I took it into several apple stores and they all pretty much told me something is wrong with the phone and all they can do is offer a replacement at a cost. In my mind, it can surely be fixed if it works temporarily. Anyone have any ideas? I have upgraded to the lastest software and installed all the carrier updates. Any help is very much appreciated.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    If in your mind it can be fixed then fix it.
    It's a hardware issue, not something you can fix with software.
    Either get it replaced or bring it to an iPhone repair shop and see if they can fix it.

    Try a PAYG SIM from a different network if it drops again (only if it does cause if it doesn't you probably wouldn't want to screw it up again) and see if it stays then. If that doesn't work then talk to AT&T to see if they can suggest anything...maybe faulty SIM or something.
