I would do a restore of your phone.

I lost my service at one point....wouldn't get any. I did a full restore to factory settings and I got my great service back.

This might solve your problem.

The iPhone radio is not as sensitive as other phones'. What firmware version are you running?

Why? You shouldn't need to. The only times I've ever "had" to restore is when I'm jailbreaking. My wife has had a phone from day one, and I've never had to restore her first gen, or 3G.

What network (3G, EDGE, GPRS) are using when you have the problem? If it's 3G (assuming you have an iPhone 3G) you might just be in an area where there's not great 3G coverage. Five bars of EDGE doesn't always mean five bars of 3G.

I'm having a similar problem. I'm using the 2g iPhone on TMobile and I can't get service where I used to be able to.
