    Hi Guys, I have an iPhone 2g and 1 month ago I´ve been experiencing some problems, please any help will be very appreciated, this are some problems I have with my phone and some solutions I searched in some forums that didn´t work:

    Problems:
    1. Since 1 month my iphone lose some signal, for example I used to have 5 bars in some places over my house and now I only have 2 or 1, my wife has another iphone with the same carrier and she has 5 bars, I used to have the same bars as my wife iPhone but recently I have 2 to 3 less. Also there´s some times that I have 5 bars and sudendly jumps to 1 bar or even no service.
    2. Drop Calls: When I´m in a call sometimes drop the call my phone and I check signal and has 2 bars for example, so I don´t know why the iPhone keep doing this it´s anoying and everytime I have the message call failed.

    I have my iphone for about 1 year and it used to be very good with the signal reception I don´t why suddendly this changes, the only difference between my wife phone and mine is that I installed the MobileInstallation and intall some games and apps.

    I already tried this “solutions” that I searched over the internet,
    - Reboot, reset network, turn off, etc: No luck doing either of this
    - Downgrade iphone to 1.1.4 and downgrade the Baseband: working the same
    - Check sim card in other phone: works great
    -Attached scotch tape on sim card: didn´t work
    - Quick pawn to firmware 2.2 and also rebbot and tried 2.1 withouth doing the back up: Didin´t work neither.

    I notice that a lot of people having the same problem and appears there´s no solution, anyone has any other idea how I can fix this? Please help that using this phone with this problems is a really pain….

    Same here

    I have the same problems that have started to occur over the last 2 months. I was talking to a friend who has a 3g (I have 2g) he is having the same problems. We were thinking conspirosy..... I have recently upgraded to the newest software and think that may be the problem... Maybe apple has something new they are coming out with and want to get rid of all the 2/3g's?
