    up until 5am my phone was working perfectly fine..however, when i woke
    up the next morning the phone was in FTM mode and was unable to receive
    or make calls. later on in the day, the FTM mode display was replaced
    by a "service required" display and the same problems persisted

Won't send or recieve data

It must show GPRS, EDGE, 3G or 1xEVS on the top. These are the various data services. If it shows GSM, there may be an issue with the device. You can try to update the OS from or your service provider.
