    i dont know if its this latest update or what but my iphone is crap now. it'll do everything from go to the home page in the middle of internet surfing or writing a text or it will just turn off where i have found out i have to hold the home button and the power button for it to come back on. Today it told me i didnt have a sim card in it!!! WTF! my friend said i should go to settings and reset my network settings so i did that....now i cant use the internet cuz it wont pick up EDGE. what the hell is wrong with this thing?

    Have you taken it to Apple so they can look at it? Is your phone jailbroken?

    When I first got my iPhone I got a couple of those messages saying there was no SIM card installed. I popped the sim card out and back in again and the error never returned. Give that a try.

    Sorry, I should have mentioned, my occasional EDGE flakiness went away with the reseat as well.

    Hope they can get you fixed up at the store!

    The internet services like edge never report downtime and it is very likely that your cell towers are being maintenanced for EDGE support.

    Its also likely that EDGE support has been removed from your cell towers temporarily in favor of siwtching to GPRS support, If that is correct then I recomend selling your iPhone and just getting a Touch. As a long term mobile internet user i have to say going from edge to GPRS is not an option i would rather Swallow Razor wire pull the end out of my but and FLOSS MY SELF TO DEATH.

    Third posibility, Your mobile service messed up your contract and you no longer have mobile internet support.
