Default No Incoming Calls or Texts

Ever since I moved out of state (since 3 days ago), there are periods of time where I am completely unable to receive any incoming calls or texts--even though my reception is perfect and I can make outgoing calls, even. I receive the texts hours after they are sent, and anyone attempting to call me reports that it goes directly to my voicemail. I even receive voicemail notifications. My phone gives no indication that something is amiss--I don't find out about it until somebody finally manages to get through and tells me about it.

I have tried turning the phone on and off, removing the battery, removing the sim card, turning airplane mode on and off, etc.

I've made no manual hardware or software changes to my phone; however, some automatic updates have been made to some of the apps. I have no idea what's causing this. All I know is I left my state, and this started happening. I'm not certain it's a coincidence.

This situation is extremely troubling because I am searching for a job, and cell number is the only phone where prospective employers can contact me. Furthermore, a friend of mine ended up in the hospital this afternoon, and nobody could reach me to let me know until several hours later.

Thanks in advance!

This is an issue that has been seen in the UK and was related to poor or non existant data connection (3G).

You could try switching phone to GSM only as that resolved the issue here. Of course this means really slow data speeds for browsing etc.
