Did you deactivate 3G network thinking it's cellular data?

Hey Dibin! In order to have service in your iPhone, the 3G must be enabled into your Settings. Rest assured, itt won't use data, it will simply allow you to have service to make/receive phone calls and send/receive text messages! Enjoy your weekend!

Check out that first ^^^

I know you say you have rebooted but, Try holding the power button and the home button for 30 seconds until you see the apple logo. and let it boot back up

It seems to be a universal fix for everything iPhone lol. But if it came back it could be a hardware issue. Have yu tried backing up ur phone and restoring it ? If that doesn't work it may be time for an upgrade.

It could also be a SIM card issue.

You need to activate 3G network!

Hey! Try going in Settings->General->Reset -> Reset Network Settings. This did the trick for me and other iPhone users in the past.  It's important to note that it erases all saved Wi-Fi passwords, so make sure to manually reconnect to your Wi-Fi networks. Let us know if this works :)
