For the last month my phone has start doing a weird thing where it will only work off one cell tower (the one on my building that I work in). When I go home it says I have full coverage on my phone but I can't make any calls out. After a few hours of being at home it says I have no coverage at all. I know its not a dodgy cell tower in my area because other Vodafone cell phones have no problem with txting and making calls from my house.

During the holidays I went travailing to other cities and got the same issue where it wouldn't work at all. Once I get back to work I get full signal again and can make out going calls and txts. I also receive a back log of txts (all 95 of them)

Now I've gone as far as to hard format my phone but it has made no difference. Anyone have any ideas?

Heh yeah I'd love to get a new Nokia N91 but I don't have the cash to upgrade at the moment.

I took my cell phone to my local Vodafone/Nokia shop and they were going to charge me $70 for just looking at it even if they couldn't fix it Yell

I think it's more likely to be hardware than software as the phone worked fine I've had it for just over a year. Also i have done a full Hard Format of the phone that whiped everything and restored it to factory settings which would fix any software defects.
