I have had my Iphone 4 for about two weeks. Cut my sim down as i couldn't afford to buy a micro sim at the time. Recently it has been losing service, it comes up with searching... The only way to get service again it to restart the phone. Is this a problem with my sim or is it the phone?? Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks James

Quite possibly the SIM.

I cut down a SIM for my iPad a while back to try it out, but cut it a bit too fine, so if it wasn't seated right it would say 'No SIM' and I would have to restart or take it out and put it in again.

I'd suggest getting a proper micro-SIM as soon as you can first of all and see if that eliminates the issue.

Does this issue happen in other locations?

What is the signal strength like normally?

Its only happened once while at work (which has full reception). But is happening quite often at home which has 3-4 bars.
