If you should loose your cell signal, it may be your carrier...

Just an FYI. I suddenly lost my cell signal and automatically assumed it was something I had done as I was installing and tinkering with WVD (Windows Video Downloader). In about 20 minutes of searching, my XV6800 finally caught a cell signal but whenever I rebooted, it searched and searched and after 5-20 minutes would grab the signal.

I tried in vain to uninstall all recently installed s/w and even resorted to reinstalling my radio software to no avail. I was about to hard reset but I had one last ditch thought... Call Verizon.

I called Verizon and was told that due to the ice storm we were having, they had lost a few cells and my phone had lost its home location setting (Home SID in the EPST settings). A quick reset of the correct local cell tower and I was good to go.

Hopefully if this happens to someone else and they search for "loss cell signal" or something they will find this post as I searched a dozen threads with nothing that suggested a loss of the home SID...

It was an ice storm and you didn't expect it to be problems with reception?

Re: If you should loose your cell signal, it may be your carrier...

I never knew cell carriers had internal techical issues that would prevent good paid for service to be given to me. [sarcasm]

Did you also know this happens with your cable and DSL and landlines and DNS servers and everything else you can think of.

Re: If you should loose your cell signal, it may be your carrier...

You're missing the point guys; VZW pushed a new home SID to my phone that woundn't automatically update once the local tower came back online causing my phone to search for a signal for 20 minutes even AFTER their problem was fixed. It was the next day and all service was restored.

So, you may have to call tech support to get you Home SID updated if your phone constantly searches for a signal...
