How to Fix It When Your iPhone Has No Service

There are many things you can try to fix when your iPhone has no service. Some of these solutions involve changing settings on your iPhone. Some of them may be as simple as updating the software on your phone. Others will require you to reset your phone or replace the SIM card. Regardless of the cause, these fixes will fix it fast. Here are the steps to take when you are experiencing no service on your iPhone.


Check the SIM card. It may be damaged or not seated properly in your iPhone. Clean it with a cloth or cotton swab. If this does not work, contact your carrier and ask them to replace the SIM card. Otherwise, try resetting the network settings. However, make sure you do not delete any data! If these solutions do not fix your iPhone, you may have to replace the SIM card.


Try turning off Mobile Data or Airplane Mode. This can fix the problem temporarily. If you still cannot connect to Wi-Fi, try removing the SIM card and inserting it again. Contact the network carrier and Apple Support for more information. This will also ensure that your iPhone continues to work properly.

If the error persists, check the carrier settings. The error could be related to the cellular modem. If it’s the latter, you can try switching on Airplane Mode or restarting the iPhone. If the above methods don’t work, you may need to make an appointment with The Fix. You can also try to fix the problem by enabling cellular data if that is the case.


Another common cause of no service on iPhones is incorrect carrier settings. Sometimes, the carrier will delete your account due to various reasons. Check the status of your account and update it if necessary. If the carrier has removed your account, you will see an error message saying “No Service” on your iPhone. This is a very common cause of service problems, so make sure that you check your settings first.


Update the Settings on your iPhone. This is a simple but effective way to fix the problem. Go to Settings > General>> About, and then click Updates. If the issue persists, you should contact your carrier to get a replacement. If this method doesn’t work, you can always come to The Fix.
