    For the past two days, I've had no service. I was using xtrROM4 when it first started. So I went back to EvilEris and it worked for a little while, then yesterday stopped working again. So I re-flashed xtrROM4 and it worked all night and this morning. Now it's gone again. Can't make a call, send a text, get online, nothing.

    Any ideas??? I'm at work, and I never had the 'best' signal, but I'd go by a window and be fine. Now nothing, no matter where I go.

  2. It sounds like coverage in your area is iffy, Bishop.

    Are there co-workers on the same carrier who can testify about their signal strength?

    It sounds more like a phone issue if you have been using it in the same area for sometime with no issues before. Have you dropped it or anything lately?
     
  4. That's a good point, too.. but I've seen coverage change in the city I live in on two different carriers now, without explanation.

    I have been thinking it has to do with construction changes, atmospheric conditions, etc.

    Signal loss is a weird thing to track down, once the obvious things are eliminated, such as damage to the phone, etc.

    I tried to see if anybody here had the same issue. But the only other person with Verizon is out this week.
     
  6. Give me the address and I'll come over with my Eris.

    PM me, I'll give you the address to send the limo (white stretch, please.. hot tub, root beer on ice and cigar humidor).

    Just so you know, it's gonna take a while to get the limo to you. Gotta finish the hand made ice sculpture and teach the dancing women a new dance routine to seduce you with. They're acting like the outfits are to tight to do splits in. :thinking:

    I did a factory reset, then nandroid restore, and still didn't get a signal. So then did another factory reset, and my signal came back. Of course, I never backed up all my apps, so I'm doing that now. Hopefully I'll stay connected now. Don't know what the cause was.

    I know this may be a bit out of left field, but have you tried powering the phone down and powering it back on? Mine "appeared" to do that to me once when I tried out wireless tethering and another time when I installed a new rom. It may have just been pure coincidence, but it worked fine when powered back on.

    Yep, did that too. It's working, for now. But I'm wondering if has anything to do with the ROM I'm using.

    Also, more than once in the last 24 hours, I've picked up my phone, and it had powered down by itself and I didn't know. I use it for my alarm clock, and it powered down in the middle of the night, so I was 30 minutes late this morning! Not cool at all.
