I'm hoping you can help. I moved over to giffgaff (i.e. O2 network) on 9th Oct, SIM only deal. Everything working fine until 18th Oct, when suddenly I lost all signal. It didn't matter where I was, it just wouldn't work (and double checked with O2 coverage in the area; it said that everything was fine). Other things that I tried:
- turning it on/off
- going in and out of airplane mode
- factory resetting the whole phone, and retyping the APNs
- putting my SIM in another phone (only have access to an old Nokia, but immediately I had reception in the other phone, suggesting a problem with my phone, not the network?)
This morning, I miraculously got web and phone reception perfectly for about an hour, and then it disappeared again. It's definitely not a signal thing, it's like the whole phone gets jammed.
So I was just wondering: is there anything else that I can try or that I'm missing? Or does this sound like a fault with my phone and realistically I need to get a new one? Or is there somewhere in London that I could take it to be fixed?
Sorry for the questions - I'm not very techy but really don't want to part with my HTC Desire if I don't have to!
Thanks in advance for all your help.
