    Every so often i get a picture of a sim card with a line through on the lock screen(quite large icon in the centre of the screen),it also says no service.

    Does this mean no signal or sim card lose/faulty?

    Here's the odd thing it only happens when im in a town where i know the signal is good?

    I'm with T mobile in the UK if this helps.

    Thanks in advance:)

    It also asks me to reset my time zone after my signal goes back to normal,every time the signal goes this happens.

    Anybody else get this?

    I think I get that too, just when I have no signal.

    As for the thing asking you to reset your time zone, I had to turn off the option that makes the phone get the time from your mobile network.

    I also experienced this about 3 times in the 3 months I've had the Hero. It's definitely not the telcom or SIM card. I removed and reinserted it numerous times. It could be an issue with the SIM password. Once I removed the password, I've had no more problems...

    I know this might sound silly but make sure the SIM hasn't come lose behind the battery. If the holding for the SIM is lose, fold a bit of paper and put it on top and put the battery back. It will stop it from coming lose.
