IPhone 3g Dropped Calls

Hello,

My Iphone has a problem, every time the 3G signal is low my calls drop, the iPhone isn't able to switch networks without the call being dropped. This is quite a nuisance, sometimes I lose a few calls in a matter of minutes, is there a way of mending this situation?

Thank you for your help.

    My iPhone 3g keeps dropping calls also, how can I fix this?

  • Jeff Adcock Dec 02, 2008

    The typical BS stall tactics are:
    1- Power the phone on and off
    2- Make sure you have the latest upgrades
    3- Replace the SIM card
    4 - Reset the networks settings
    5 - Reset the phone
    6- Replace the phone

    I just hope they figure out a fix, even a huge discount on a new iphone that works as a phone not just the i.
    If they do not the Groundswell is going to bury this relationship!!!
    Verizon and the iPhone would have been total dominance.

I've got the solution! Join our petition to have AT&T reimburse us for all their dropped calls!

The iphone 3G is a lemon. The only way of mending the situation is to return it for a refund and get a different phone. I've gone through 3 iphone 3G's and they all have the same problem. The Apple people in my mall refuse to acknowledge that there is a problem and the AT&T people tell me to turn off the 3G! Then why even have it? I finally a got guy at AT&T to admit (secretly) that it's a hardware problem and not something that could be fixed with software patch. He said the sh*t is gonna hit the fan and that they're just buying time to figure out what to do. When I was in AT&T a few days ago to cancel my account and get a refund there were at least 6 other people canceling their accounts for the same reason. Now I'm back on the Blackberry until Apple gets their sh*t together.

This is how I fixed my iPhone and it isn't dropping calls anymore. Try plugging into your computer and opening iTunes. Click update and update your firmware.

Ever since I did this, things were fine. If this doesn't work, do go into the Apple store. Honestly, if you've got the 3G you need to go in anyways to replace your power adapter. You should've received a text on this, but more details on power adapter recall are available here: http://www.computerworld.com.au/index.php/id;151012559

I forgot my iPhone Passcode. What can I do to unlock it?


iPhone setting:*
- Auto-Lock: 1 Minute;*
- Passcode Lock: On, require passcode immediately, after 15 min or 4 hours etc;*
- Network: Turn 3G Off

Scenario 1: Home screen is active with screen on*
1. Press power button for seconds until asked to '"slide to power off"
2. Slide to power off
3. press power button to turn on iPhone
4.*When asked to enter passcode, touch the "Cancel" key, then slide to unlock
5. bypassed passcode

Scenario 2:*
1. On the screen of being asked to enter passcode, press power button for seconds until asked to '"slide to power off"
2.*Slide to power off
3. press power button to turn on iPhone
4.*When asked to enter passcode, DO NOT touch any key on the screen, press power button for seconds until asked to '"slide to power off"
5. Slide to power off
6. press power button to turn on iPhone
7.*When asked to enter passcode, touch the "Cancel" key on the right bottom corner, then slide to unlock
8. bypassed passcode

Notes:
1. When Network setting changes to Enable 3G: ON, "3G" signal shows up, passcode CANNOT be passed through
Go to a underground parking lot or a lift where 3G signal is weak, when 3G signal switches to "E" (Edge), passcode CAN be passed through following above steps
2. When no 3G or Edge signal, above steps don't work

Conclusion:
Seems passcode security is related to network status
Possible security hole under Edge

Can you surf the web on an Apple iPhone without a Wi-Fi connection?


There are two nation-wide cell networks that allow you to browse the internet. The EDGE network (for original iPhone) and the 3G network (3G is faster, but not as widespread and can only be accessed through the iPhone 3G ). iPhone monthly plans include unlimited use of the internet, without using up your calling minutes.

If you can take advantage of a nearby wireless hub, you'll have much better speed than when you're on a cell-phone data network... but even without wireless, you can still browse, email, work and play via the EDGE or 3G cell-phone network.

Hi, iPhone 3G's are currently unlockable without a SIM card. (Which are illegal in Canada). The only other 3G provider in Canada that you would be able to use the phone with would be Rogers but they share the same network and have nearly identical plans. There has been progress in efforts towards unlocking the iPhone but the time line is somewhere near November.
