    Hi all, figured I would post asking if anyone has been able to resolve the "No Service" issue on the Lumia 920? Basically what happens is when you turn on the phone you see the airplane logo for a split second then it goes to "No Service".

    New sim cards, hard resets, changing to LTE or 3G, trying to manually select the carrier, etc does not seem to be working for anyone.

    Also, Amber Update did not resolve it. If you search engine this it is quite widespread. I am lucky enough to have two Lumia 920 phones so I can still have the Windows experience when I want it BUT there is nothing out there yet that has fixed the No Service issue on the other one.

    It is basically a weight. Any idea's? Has anyone resolved this? I am beginning to feel it is a hardware related issue.

    try uninstalling the Facebook app and restarting your phone. Then try chat again.

    I get the No Service bug fairly regularly on my 920 (3 UK). It's bloody annoying but putting the phone in and out of flight mode usually fixes it for me.

    Try chucking your IMEI into here, it will check to make sure it's not blacklisted, if it's not then it could be a cracked antennae.

    I had this problem and after 3 times of sending my phone for repair and kicking up a fuss, they figured out that my aerial was broken inside the phone (it has been dropped)

    Thank you for the replies. Looks like mine came defective right out of the factory, it has never been dropped and has always been handled with complete care.

    I am pretty well certain at this point that it is a hardware issue. Thanks to all. I was more curious than anything and it doesn't look like anything can be done on the user end to resolve this.

    One thing you could try is dial ##3282# >> settings >> Network Type >> 2G. Check if something shows up. If yes then set it to automatic and hit back till you reach the home screen. Also reboot if you can.

    Anyone experiencing No Service issues on a 920 may want to read a post that I made recently where I explain the issue as it happened on my 920 due to a drop, and how to fix it.

    My carrier does not support 2G. 3G above only.

    All GSM carriers support atleast 2G, if there is no 2G signal you will atleast see network signal without data, that's what I wanted to know if it works

    I had this issue with my lumia 920. I couldn't fix this problem by changing the RM. this is not a software bug. In my opinion this problem may relate to sim slot holder. In my phone the sim card could not fit within the phone. when I tried to thickend my sim card this resolved my problem. you could try this may be fixed your problem.

    I just had this happen for the first time yesterday. I had plugged my phone in to charge at 4:30PM when I got home then unplugged it to send a text at around 5:45PM and there was no service.

    I tried switching airplane mode on and off; that didn't work.
    Tried restarting the phone; that didn't work
    Tried making a call to see if that would work with finding a signal; no luck

    So I set my phone down for a few minutes and was planning to make a trip into the AT&T store, when I picked it back up it was working again.

    I was looking back at my previous posts in the forum and realizing that I have had so many problems with this phone ever since I received it last November. Just when I think it has worked out all the bugs I am hit with another one. I may just have to break down and spend the money to purchase a new phone because it is getting very old, very quickly.

    Okay so this happen to me as well! All i did was i first bashed Nokia support on twitter for not helping me, then i emailed Nokia support they said they will fix it for free if the phone has a warranty on it. So i shipped it out and they sent me a new one due to the fact they could not fix the issue. So email Nokia support. I think this issue will happen to anyone with a 920 over time because if you shake the phone you can here parts inside moving so the phone dose not have a good bulid quailty inside causing the single to mess up as a whole. (ALSO THEY SENT ME A NEW 920 and LIKE 2 days later if was full of scratches.)
    (also i wish nokia would care more about the 920 feels like they just stop worrying about....still waiting for GDR2.)

    I got the same issue after updating to gdr3 and I'm not sure but I think it only happens when maximum speed is set to 4g.
    Maybe it's not about the software update it self, could be about the version of the update... I think it's different depending on country so some version can be defective and can be causing this. For that reason they probably didn't notice the problem.
    My phone is a nokia lumia 920 unlocked version and firmware is 3051.40000.1349.0004 The original provider was CV Scandinavia but I bought in Portugal.
    Just check if you have the same problem and if any of these info is the same as yours.

    Hi everyone! This is my first post. Please forgive me for any english ou site trouble... I just want to help.

    I have this inssue after I let the phone fall hard yesterday.

    I FIXED IT by open the device thanks to youtube LE55ONS video (sorry. You need to google "disassembly lumia 920" because i can`t post links here...) and try the points of a BROKEN LCDs how to (google "How to Solve Nokia Lumia 920 Network Problems").
    Thank you guys!!!
    In my case, the cable connector antenna came loose after I let the phone fall to the ground from a height of about 2 meters.
    Simply reconnected the cable and the signal level returned to normal.
    Check all other connectors also because some may come off due to a hard impact suffered.
    Below is an image taked from the LE55ONS video to clarify the solution.

    Can someone help me? I have Nokia Lumia 630 and I have a problem with my network. I'm from Serbia and I'm in a network called VIP. So for the first few months my phone worked perfectly but after the update my phone started bugging. It said no network found!! When I restarted my phone again it worked normaly but after few hours the same error... I sent it to the service and they said the phone is working perfectly. And they just returned to factory settings. After two days since it came back from service again the same error. Again sending it to service and they again say that the phone is working perfectly. I can't send messages, I can't get them... When I try to call someone it doesn't ring it just glithes out and I can't get of the call screen. And of course my mobile internet doesn't work... So is there any help for me? My phone is a complete mess since that update.

    Thank you for the options given to resolve the issue.

    I had the same issue and i resolved it by fixing the antenna which was disconnected.

    I checked the sim, then settings, network, the sim adjustments with sim slot, then opened up the mobile.

    Thank you.
    My network is back again with full swing

    Hi all. I had this problem today and it seems it was a 4G issue. Here's what I did: Settings > mobile + SIM > Highest connection speed 3G (instead of 4G). My phone it's working fine now and so far the "no service" message hasn't show up again.

    Hope this can be helpful.
