    It worked great! Thank you so much. I’ve been to the Apple store twice with this problem and they even gave me a new IPad. Both times they got my cellular to work again but it only lasted for a day to two. Hopefully, this fix will last.

  10. yahya says:

    i tried everysingle way to sort this problem out.
    i upgraded my mobile to 6.0.1 and i lost connections.
    no services is all i got at the moment.
    i even tried to contact apple and they seem very much relaxed .. they did not give a damn shit about my emails!

    really disappointed.

  11. Rob c says:

    Before ios6.0 and subsequently ios6.1 so called updates my iphone4 is crap, reduced wifi range, poor music playback volume reduced speed on pretty much everything, i used to love this phone but unless problems are resolved soon ,preferably with an option to go back to ios5.11 this will be my last idevice.
    Apple, listen to your customers, while you still have them !

    Allrighty then!
    I’me dutch so sorry for my poor English..
    To make you’re iPhone find you’re simcard and find network again the solution is verry simple:
    When the phone is allready jailbroken do the following
    In redsn0w select the IOS 6.0.10A4** ipsw you use.
    Go back and select jailbreak
    Uncheck Cydia
    Check ipad baseband
    DFU and start jailbreak
    after done go to Cydia, install ultrasnow from
    reboot phone and it’s done.
    Cause of tethering, after battery fail or reboot, make shure you have Wifi. just go back to Cydia and reinstall ultrasn0w fo ios 6, reboot and done..

  19. Muzaffer says:

    i have a 3gs ios 6.1…i use the operator vodafone in Turkey. When i have updated ios 6.1, it searches the operator and can not find it. Why Apple does not care this problem??? Million of people suffers because of this problem…

  20. zerald says:

    after update ios 6.1 by itunes on my iphone 3gs my iphone is not working help me.

  21. Joao says:

    Had the same problem with iOS 6.1.2 update on iphone5. Phone always showing searching for carrier but didn’t find it. Carrier support recommend me a restore, done it… and ended up with phone unrecoverable while iTunes always showing error (-1) and asking to restore again… I think people call the recovery loop.

    My carrier is Optimus (Portugal) and they unlock my iphone5 2 weeks after I bought it regarding their XMAS promotion. Had to sent phone to warranty :( This totally breaks my confidence in apple reliability… After ipod, imac, iphone3gs, macbook, macbook air… I’m totally disappointed with iphone5/ios reliability :(
