Did you do any repairs recently on the device?

Try toggling Airplane Mode off then back on. If that doesn't work take out the SIM Card and reinsert it.

I did get my charging jack replaced.

But that was a month back and it was working fine till now.

I tried the methods you suggested already.


The iPhone 5 dock connector has the cell antenna attached to it which is what you're having a problem getting (cell signal). I would take it back to the repair shop and have it looked at. You can see in the product image that the dock connector has the antenna: iPhone 5 Lightning Connector and Headphone Jack

What I suspect has happened is the antenna has failed. If it's an iFixit part the warranty can be claimed and easily replaced. If it's an Amazon/eBay part it would likely result in a new purchase for a part.


Also i had my headphone jack busted.

when i used it on aux

only tunes came

no vocals.


Did this start before or after you had your charging port replaced? The two are connected. It sounds more and more like you might have had a bad part put in.
