i got a new screen put on my iphone 5 and it keeps saying "searching" and won't find a network.
i was able to backup the phone, but i tried restoring it as a new phone 3 times and it was a "no go".....any ideas,
i have no phone at the moment, so i want be able to check back on this all the time. i'll try to stay on laptop for a while though..
thanks in advance..
i took to at&t store and got new sim card cause i thought that might fix it, but it didn't.
i've tried resetting network settings twice and that didn't work either.

iphone 5
itunes 12.8

Where did you get the new screen replaced at? I’m guessing not from Apple???
I’d be going back to where it was done and tell them about it.
If you did it on your own, well........

i definitely did not try to do it....i took it to a legitimate phone repair store in my city.....that and working on computers is all they do.
