6300 signal

hey

im on vodafone and i usually get good signal with my 6300 but today i took my battery out and its not been the same i get no signal at all (one very very rarely)
i have put the sim into two older nokias and i get the normal signal i would expect.
im guessing the problems with the phone as i have rung vodaphone and they claim my area is good i can back this up with my mums phone working fine.
anything i can do ?
quite odd how its happened all of a sudden i love my 6300 and would like to fix it

if anybody could help id be very grateful

many thanks

Re: 6300 signal

how old is your sim card, sometimes older sim cards have a tendency to 'act out'.

Re: 6300 signal

nah then that can't be it. ok short of reformatting your phone i would have to guess it might be a hardware failure of sorts :smileysad: you would have to take it either to provider for exchange or to nokia care to get that sorted out. reformat option should be somewhere in the phone settings. make sure you back up your data if you can before you reformat as you will lose all your data on the phone.

Re: 6300 signal

i am sorry you are having trouble with your phone. and yes i think i did mention that you will lose all of your data if you do a reformat. :smileysad: also try this as a last resort take out your battery for 15 minutes, remove your sim card and just let the phone be. after that time assemble it back again and see if it makes any difference. if that does not work you will either have to exchange it with your provider which would be quicker if you just got the phone or go to nokia care point for service. sorry i don't have any other ideas for you, it sucks
