Is Your iPhone Reporting “No Service” When You Know There’s a Signal?

by Sarah Dobson on January 21, 2019

Cellular reception is available almost everywhere in today’s world, but occasionally your iPhone can malfunction and report “No Service.” Here’s an easy fix to get you back online.

Have you ever seen the dreaded “No Service” label at the top of your iPhone’s screen, even when you’re pretty sure there should be cellular reception? It’s not common, but the iPhone’s cellular radio can occasionally get confused. Luckily, you can easily fix the problem.

Open Control Center by swiping down from the upper-right corner on an iPhone X (or later) or an iPad; or up from the bottom on an earlier iPhone. Tap the airplane icon to put the iPhone in airplane mode, which turns off the cellular radio. Wait a few seconds and tap the airplane icon again to re-enable the cellular radio. If that doesn’t work, power-cycle your iPhone by holding the side or Sleep/Wake button until you see the Power Off slider. Slide it to turn the iPhone off, then press and hold the side or Sleep/Wake button again until the iPhone restarts.
