No Service - Fido Network not found

My phone just completely lost service in my house, and FIDO isn't even showing up as an available network in my settings.. I have reset it three times now, and it still isn't working.

Re: No Service - Fido Network not found

Hey everyone!

 

         Although this thread is quite old, I'd like to add a little update since I came across it. if Fido is not experiencing any network outage or network techinal issue then many other factors can contribute to not being able to access/connect to the network. Network issue can be the cause of faulty SIM, freezing phone, defective phone, OS related issues, outdated OS, Bugs/virus, 3rd party Apps, broken antenna & so on.

          Some eligible Fido store are able to diagnose the phone to see if it's a device or OS related issue. To know which store can help with such you can click on the Link below, IPhone users must go to an Apple store.

http://www.fido.ca/web/Fido.portal?_nfpb=true&_pageLabel=StoreLocator&lang=en

Select: Device Tune-up, repair and loaner phone service & enter your postal code or City.

 

Before Going to a Fido or Apple Store, try these troubleshooting tips:

*** Try the SIM Card in a different device to see if issue replicate itself. if so it's a SIM card issue then just buy a new SIM card for $10 + tax. If SIM Card works fine then proceed with instructions below.

 

IPhone  : Hold Power turn on/off button  & hold Home button together & do not let go until the Apple logo appears. (IF doesn't work try the next one)

              Settings > Carrier > manually search network > select Fido (IF doesn't work try the next one)

              Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.

 

Android: Turn phone OFF & ON

               Settings > Wireless & Networks or More Networks > Mobile Networks > Network Operators > Manually Search for a Network & select Fido.

 

 

 

Hope this helps!

Hi there,

 

This issue is happening to me right now and it happened to me a few days back as well.

 

iOS is uptodate.  Restarted the phone with no success.

 

Is Fido having a technical misfunction on the Iphone5?

 

Please advise,

phoenen

Hey michelles, and welcome to the Community Smiley

 

That doesn't sound right at all. Have you tried to reboot your phone?

 

This might help.

Re: No Service - Fido Network not found

Welcome to the Community @Mansell2!


When did this start happening? Was it working before with this phone?

 

We'd have to narrow down if it's the SIM card or the device itself, have you had the chance to test your SIM in another phone to see if it connects to the network?

 

Let us know Smiley
