How old is the battery? I had to get a new one for my phone...not that expensive. Do you let the battery go dead once in awhile?...if not, you should. The li-ion batteries are better than the nicads, but still a good idea. I left mine on all the time, and was told to turn it off at least twice a week...and to charge it from dead to full...with phone off...every 1 or 2 months. finally, Try typing *228, and send. Select option 2 -- updating your roaming capibilities. The phone will go through a sequence of unlocking and reprogramming...DO NOT SHUT THE PHONE OFF DURING THIS PROCESS. It only takes a couple of minutes...or less...and will notify you that the phone was successfully updated. Had two people tell me that for some reason, this helped restore some battery capacity.
I had the same problem with my phone- i got a cheap generic battery to replace the old one (which wasn't holding a charge for a full day, at that) and then i lost all signal, basically. I tried what scm_pa said he did - charged my old battery up, with the phone off, till the charge was complete- turned the phone on, and voila, reception!
