This is so annoying at least 2 times a day my Iphone 5 looses all cellular service. Every mornign I wake up I have to turn it off and on. I tried turning it to airplane mode but that doesnt work. Quick search on the net and I see it may be a software problem that will be solved with this months 6.1 update.


Anyoen else have this annoying problem ? Anyone solve it with a OS 6.1 beta?

According to some users iOS 6.0.2 is draining the battery faster.

I'm hesitant to update the iOS on my iphone because of this.

I've got the same issue with my iphone 5 using iOS 6.0.2 - i'm not getting as many drop outs since updating but i noticed it still drops out sometimes.

Hi - I'm running an iPhone 5 with 6.0.1 on Telecom and haven't noticed any dropouts, but I'm wondering if you have tried altering the carrier connection setting (ie. if you have it set to Automatic you could try setting it to your carrier manually or vice versa).
Also wondering if you've tried the 'reset network settings' under General > Reset.
I can also only suggest the usual oter options - restart, or connect to iTunes and see if there is a carrier update that could be applied, or maybe restore the phone as a new device and see if the dropouts still occur...?




Cheers,
Mike
