Hello i have a problem with my iphone 4S.. it show me network searching.... i try all solutions such as remove sim card, go to settings cellular etc.. nothing is go. Anyone can help me ..

by Sharon Young

Below solution worked for me

A solution is to set the date and time manually. If you take out the battery on the iPhone (iOS 6.xx) the date will be 1970.. :p

When you have set the date and time, remove the sim card and put it back in.. This should work :)

Try switching your sim card to other phone to see if it work. And other sim card on your phone. I did just that when no other trick works only to find out that my sim card is faulty.. Hope this help.

(you kan also connect the phone to the WiFi to automatically set date and time. Do the same with the sim card, when the time is right :) )

Hi, I had the same issue after changing the power button. I had tried all options given on the net and I can confirm that the answer that alex gives worked for me.

Many Thanks

I think this is more of a comment - or affirmation of solution-' than a non-answer and I'm voting it as such.

by originalmachead

that worked for me perfectly, I just didn't get why apple haven't fixed it yet with new IOS, I have 8.1.2 on my iphone 4s and after battery dies you will have to play with date/time everytime

by Balaban Viktor

You could also try to put in a sim card without a pin code, and then go to Settings -> General -> Cellular -> "enable 3G" or for iPhone 5 "enable LTE", if 3G/LTE don't show up, go back to General -> Cellular. And then se if it shows, enable and disable fast a couple of times and 3G should appear in the status bar. When it shows, wait for a couple seconds with "enable 3G" on, 2-3 seconds later disable it and enable it again. There you go, you should now be able to get a service, on operator locked iPhones, you will have to activate the phone, but then you could use your original sim card on the phone to activate it. You may have to activate through signing in with Apple ID.

Any questions just comment
