    I'm having some problems with service on my Iphone. This only happens at my apartment at college. My service seems to "timeout." The phone will say that I have full signal, yet I can't place/receive calls or text messages. If I restart my phone that fixes the problem however.

    Before I went to ATT I wanted to check here to see if it's an apple software problem, or if it's a problem with the service.

    It doesn't sound like an AT&T problem. You might try a restore to see if that fixes it, and if not, go to Apple.

    It sounds to me like an internal software issue that is causing the iPhone to display a false error message as if the service were overloaded and timed out. Take it to Apple after a Restore if the problems persists. Out of curiosity, does this happen on select webpages or randomly on any?

    Update: I went to restore tonight and started the process of backing up. Apple informed me that I should stop being lazy and update my Iphone OS. Low and behold one of the updates for the new OS was my exact problem. So I went ahead and updated that tonight....

    Hopefully that gets it working right, I'll keep you guys posted.

    What version were you running before you updated (to 3.1.2, I presume)?

    Also, which iPhone model?
