Try resetting your network settings and reseating the sim card. If that doesn't work, you may not have reconnected everything properly. My only suggestion would be to take it apart and try again.

Just curious, did you take it in to Apple to see if they would replace it? They often replace them for free the first time you crack the screen. After that, it's $200, but at least it doesn't void the warranty like it does when you do it yourself.

I'm not the least bit interested in finding out how to take apart my iPhone, nor do I ever plan to! The only people that find themselves in trouble, are the ones that get themselves there, something's are better left to the experts, especially the ones that can void your warranties.

You remind me of a buddy of mine who also thought the same way, and decided that he too can service his own breaks....long story, short...he's lucky he had another car, because the one he did the break job on wasn't drivable for almost two weeks, until he finally had the balls to admit he screwed up, and had it towed to a mechanic!

My phone cost me a pretty penny, and I'm not going to chance screwing it up

I agree with you Chris. Some things shouldn't have my hands in them.

<shrug> well I try to do something just to know I can or have.. But I do study up on what I'm fixing to do before I do it.. From taken my phones apart to me building my first pc years ago to taken broken laptops apart to fix to changing the oil in my cars or trucks to body work and paint and doing house repairs.. And yeah I mess up few times but I have learn from my mistakes and I try to fix it and get pass the mistake.. But at same time there some things I do leave up to someone else

That's cool lowram...some people are more tech savvy than others, and can pull that kind of stuff off. If your good at that stuff, why not then....good luck with man.
