I'm an owner of a 32GB iPhone 5c. Ever since getting the phone, I would lose all signal. I would have zero bars (or dots) but signal type would still be LTE.
When this happens, the following happens:
No signal, but on LTE signal type
*on occasions would very briefly say "No SIM card installed" then go away and either gain signal back or would say "Searching..." indefinitely*
No voice, data or text
To remedy I have to do a soft reset of the phone to force the radio to reconnect to Sprint.
There's no rhyme or reason as to why this happens. Totally random. I know I'm in an area were at least 3G is plentiful and LTE signal averages 3-4 dots (or bars). Zip code 55373.
I've had Apple replace my original iPhone 5c, and went to a Sprint store per Apple Genius' recommendation to replace the SIM card (which got replaced) and I'm still having this issue. I've never had a signal issue with any of my other devices at my home (still the same location).
I'm actually quite frustrated and ready to jump ship to T-Mobile. Any ideas or thoughts before I head over to the T-Mobile store???
