You can pull the battery on the device for 30 seconds, then put it back in and try again.

If that fails, you need to call your carrier and have them refresh you on the network.

If all fails, you may have a defective sim card.

Basically what you have to do is take out your battery, then you put it back in, or you take it to a local phone store. or you could take it to the internet cafe, and maybe they will help fix it for you, however make sure you know who you are giving it to!!! =]
hope this helps!

I have a message on my orange mobile phone which says No Network Coverage what does this mean E Brown

This means that where you currently are, your phone cannot reach a network. In certain places, the signals the mobile phone companies use to connect to your phone are too weak. When this happens, your phone will display this message. So if people try to call you or send a message, they won't get through to you and vice-versa. You can try to change this by changing where you are, or if this is not convenient due to the fact that you get no signal at home or work, try changing to a different network. Bear in mind also, that phone networks occasionally fail for short periods of time while maintenance is being carried out. So it could be remedied simply by waiting a day or two. Hope to have helped.

Outlook, Gmail, and Txt suddently went away

When you stepped off the plane, were you in a different mobile phone provider's network coverage area?

If your phone cannot connect to the right network, then apps that use resources (data plan) that rely on that network will not work. I have experienced an app disappearing on a different brand phone when a network service on my plan was accidentally disconnected by the service provider.

Fone was working fine, all of a sudden i had no network coverage,

Sometimes the memory cards hold viruses
maybe she gave you one that held a virs on it.
You need to take your phone to the store providers and let them trouble shot it.

Phone calls

ATT carries the Blackjack II and the coverage they offer isn't the best

even though this phone can connect to eight different network frequencies

it depends on the coverage if its in a high one because you must see you coverage before you connect. what you can do is turn off you phone for an 1 hour.

yes,it's a major problem with uiq phones they need to be ''restarted'' once a day, also try switching off 3g if you don't use it and if you don't have good 3g coverage.

Swithing off and poor signal

i would advise you take your phone either back or to a phone shop because that has something to do with the phone itself and the on/off deffinitly is the phone

No coverage

hmmm. I had a similar problem when I tried to use an hiphone i32triband (the seller said it was a cect168 quadband)...does your wireless network support g3 quadband? or your phone's band? and if so, is your phone at the proper setting? go to settings on your phone and make sure it's at your network providers' band setting. You can also go to this supremely useful website, GSM roaming-US, and find your network provider's details there. u gota sweet phone!!!
