My iPhone 5C keeps saying 'no service' when I am in an area with service in the city. It usually comes back after turning the phone off then on again, but this fix has stopped working too.

Hello Lucy,

Thanks for your reply. :) LTE isn't disabled. Airplane mode on/off doesn't change things either. I turned my phone off and on one more time and now have service back but it is a recurring problem.

Try it with LTE off and see if it makes a difference.
The new iPhone update need to be downloaded then it will work when you turn your phone back on. It did it to me last night. I have a IPhone 5s

If it doesn't solve your problem, I usually suggest the hammer method.

Just kidding, don't do that.

Just did a big update. When my phone came back on, it said no service and that there was no sim :s but after restarting, it seems to be fine... will see how it goes! Thanks for the help.

So I'm intermittently losing service again, this time with 'invalid sim' and 'sim failure' as well as no service. Anyone have any ideas?

It may be time for a new SIM card. They occasionally cease to work.
