If it's a signal strength problem, it's more likely to be your Network Service Provider than your phone. However your internal aerial might be faulty.
You could try a restore to factory settings, but I don't think it will change anything.
Updating the Firmware might help.

You need to download the latest Nokia PC Suite to do an update on your phone.
Before updating software you should check that there’s a newer version of software available.

WARNING
When updating software on Mobs, be sure to:
HAVE A FULLY CHARGED BATTERY INSERTED;
PUT IT ON GENERAL PROFILE;
TURN OFF YOUR PIN NUMBER;
CONNECT YOUR CHARGER TO YOUR MOB AND SWITCH IT ON;
DO NOT ----- DO NOT ---- TOUCH YOUR PHONE WHILE THE UPDATE IS GOING ON;
THIS CAN TAKE 30 MINUTES OR MORE.
And obviously don’t unplug the phone from the PC.
Be patient, you may have to do a restart or two on your mob afterwards. Even remove the battery to get it going again (not recommended). But give it plenty of time.
It is also wise not to use your PC while updating software, just in case the PC freezes.
If the PC freezes during an update, you’re up the creek without a paddle...

I did an update on a Sony Eric 810i it took nearly two hours.
More... Your phone turns itself on and off, sometimes more than once while updating software, you should leave it well alone during the update.

Have cellular service but phone wont allow cellular data


First I'll say the possible easiest answer. Turn your phone off and on. If that didn't work, try the following...

  • Go into Settings -> Cellular and make sure it is turned on.
  • If celluar data is turned on, but no luck... Settings -> General -> Reset -> Then choose Reset Network Settings.
Good luck!

Want to reset security access code on my Nokia


To set how your phone uses the access codes and security settings, select Menu >Settings > Security.

The security code helps to protect your phone against unauthorized use. The preset code is 12345. You can change the code, and set the phone to request the code.

The PIN (UPIN) code, supplied with the SIM (USIM) card, helps to protect the card against unauthorized use.

The PIN2 (UPIN2) code, supplied with some SIM (USIM) cards, is required to access certain services.

PUK (UPUK) and PUK2 (UPUK2) codes may be supplied with the SIM (USIM) card. If you enter the PIN code incorrectly three times in succession, you are asked for the PUK code. If the codes are not supplied, contact your service provider.

The barring password is required when using the Call barring service to restrict incoming calls to and outgoing calls from your phone (network service).

To view or change the security module settings, select Menu > Settings >
Security > Security module setting

Call barring
Call barring (network service) allows you to restrict the calls that you make and receive with your phone. To change the settings, you need the barring password from your service provider.
  1. Select Menu > Tools > Settings > Call barring.
  2. Scroll to the desired barring option, and to request the network to set call restriction on, select Options > Activate. To set the selected call restriction off, select Cancel. To check whether the calls are barred, select Check status. To change the barring password, select Edit barrings passw.. To cancel all active call barrings, select Cancel all barrings.
So try contacting your Vodaphone customer service and ask for the call barring code, see if it opens up with a code that they give.

Nokia n 73 signal disappear


Sounds like you're getting 3G interference. It happens because you're just on the edge of a 3G area. The same happens to me on both my N95-8GB and N73. The phone is detecting a weak 3G but it's not enough to make a call.
You need to go to "Tools" -> "Settings" -> "Network" and switch from "Dual mode" to "GSM" The phone will say it needs to restart, select "Yes"
The phone will then restart and you shouldn't suffer any more 3G blackouts.

Hope that helps.
