iphone 6 no service

Have no signal on my mobile phone just an SOS but service is active with Telstra. Tried resetting Network settings & restarting phone but no avail . Reported the fault to Telstra but couldn't help me . Put an fault with Trouble Ticketing. Have been with out no signal for 2 days. Could it be the SIM card - faulty ?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Hi, I'd certainly go down the dead sim path. I don't supose you have a family member or friend that could offer there sim for a brief test, just to rule out the phone?

Failing that you could pop in to a Telstra shop and they could offer a replacement sim (and activate it) for the phone.

Re: iphone 6 no service

My phone has just popped up with SOS only today. I recently changed plans and received a new iphone 6s and continued to use my previous sim card. Maybe this is the problem. I am in the queue waiting for some feedback at the moment. 


They did send a new sim card with the phone but I didn't think this was neccessary to place as the instructions provided didn't state that I needed to replace my current sim with their new one. 


Also I have logged on and I can see that on my account they have not updated my current plan to replace my old plan. 


Weird. I will post the outcome - if there is one.
