my iPhone sometimes doesn't register calls or even voice messages?

Are you jailbroken, unlocked, both or none? lol. Seriously though, it could be one of those factors, I would suggest a restore back to a new device and see how you go.

Had the same problem when I had the updated ipcc file for MMS and then updated to 3.1. Had to restore and set up as a new phone to get VVM back!

hmm

my iPhone is not jailbroken, its stock.

I feel like it's more of a service thing? restoring the phone would make a difference? Do I lose everything?

Do you have the latest carrier updates installed? Could be an ATT thing in your area..

hey

What are the latest carrier updates? I just got my new phone 2 weeks ago now.

My iPhone is the newest 3.1 version.

my friend also has one who lives in the same town and is fine....

Before doing a restore go to settings -> general -> reset and reset your network settings and see if that does the trick.

I have had this same problem since I got the phone when it came out - so 3.0 and 3.1. I can be standing in the same spot and the third call will come through. VM will register about 2-4 hours later if they leave a message but a missed call will never show up. I have talked to Apple and AT&T who all seem to tell me that since no call is registering then no one is really calling me. Quite helpful- NOT.

hey

I just did the network restore, and have the latest carrier updates, time will tell if someone calls my house and says why aren't you picking up your cell though.
