Hi Guys, I have an iPhone 2g and 1 month ago I´ve been experiencing some problems, please any help will be very appreciated, this are some problems I have with my phone and some solutions I searched in some forums that didn´t work:

Problems:

  • Since 1 month my iPhone lose some signal, for example I used to have 5 bars in some places over my house and now I only have 2 or 1, my wife has another iPhone with the same carrier and she has 5 bars, I used to have the same bars as my wife iPhone but recently I have 2 to 3 less. Also there´s some times that I have 5 bars and sudendly jumps to 1 bar or even no service.
  • Drop Calls: When I´m in a call sometimes drop the call my phone and I check signal and has 2 bars for example, so I don´t know why the iPhone keep doing this it´s annoying and everytime I have the message call failed.

I have my iPhone for about 1 year and it used to be very good with the signal reception I don´t why suddendly this changes, the only difference between my wife phone and mine is that I installed the MobileInstallation and intall some games and apps.

I already tried this “solutions” that I searched over the internet,
- Reboot, reset network, turn off, etc: No luck doing either of this
- Downgrade iPhone to 1.1.4 and downgrade the Baseband: working the same
- Check sim card in other phone: works great
-Attached scotch tape on sim card: didn´t work
- Quick pawn to firmware 2.2 and also rebbot and tried 2.1 withouth doing the back up: Didin´t work neither.

I notice that a lot of people having the same problem and appears there´s no solution, anyone has any other idea how I can fix this? Please help that using this phone with this problems is a really pain….

I am in the process of reviewing a Wilson iBooster. I can tell you that it works, but it is made to boost signal in your car. It won't help for signals elsewhere though!

Contact your carrier about getting a new SIM card.
