If you are not getting signal in some areas then your cellphone will display as "limited service" and sometimes when you come to the area where there is signal then also it display "limited service"..
if so try giving "restore factory settings"("reset") the firmware might have got corrupted .. by giving the "restore factory settings"("reset") the firmware problems will be fixed ..

after you press "restore factory settings"("reset") it may ask for the "security code"("password") give that ...
after you perform the reset restart your phone once ...

if you still persist the same problem then the network antenna(network pin) inside the phone is in loose contact it might not be touching the motherboard of the cell correctly so if you are good at opening then just open the handset and fix it correctly you problem will be fixed ...

any doubts you can reply me

have a nice day

I dont think its down to your signal as your getting on the internet. it could be a firmware problem if i was you i would flash it ive flashed mine 4 or 5 times with no problem and its always been an improvement on the previous f/w . I find the best f/w to be F48FXEIA3 you can find out what f/w you have by dialing *#1234# its the last 3 letters and numbers that are important IA3 i=2009 h =2008 a = jan b=feb c=march and so on the number after is the revision of the said month any probs e-mail me

My cell phone samsung j 700 is limited serviced


if your phone is showing limited service on all sim sards that mean you have to change PA and antenna switch.
you can also try to full reset the phone by entering *2767*3855# sometime it will remove limited service.
PS: you will loose all your data after resetting.

D900 limited service?ne solutions


I had the same problem so I went into Menu-Settings-Network Services-Band Selection. It should then give you the option to select two different types of GSM Bands or Quad Band. I found that Quad Band works for me, but the GSM 850/1900 worked as well. Hope this helps!
