Can't make calls or sms on iphone 3gs after iOs5 upgrade?

I upgraded to iOS5 on my iphone 3gs and I am having major problems connecting to the 3g network. I can't make or recieve calls or sms, or log on to the internet over the 3g network. wifi works fine, but that doesn't help with the calls or the sms, and i can't always be on wifi for my emails. the phone worked fine before the upgrade.
i've restored the entire phone as a new phone, i've gone in to the apple store and had my phone looked at, they say there's nothing wrong with the hardware.
i live in Canada and my carrier is Rogers - of course when I call them for help they say it must be the phone not their network. they'd rather i buy a new phone and sign another 3 year contract
the only thing that seems to help is restoring network settings. immediately after doing that I can make calls, send and receive sms, and use the internet over 3g. but it only fixes it temporarily... after about 15 mins I'm back to the same problem. can't make or receive call etc.
anyone else having this same problem?
anyone know of a solution?

After 2 hours with Apple Support, which was great, we figured out the issue. 1-800-my-iphone. When I upgraded to iOS5 and started using the iCloud, I was unaware that my previous synching settings were still set to Yahoo.com where I had been sycning wirelessly in the past. So the Apple support tech showed me that I had multiple accounts in both Notes and Contacts. I had iPhone, iCloud, yahoo, Outlook accounts and my default settings on the iphone should have all been set to icloud. Syching was occuring, but not in icloud. It took a little manual conversion of some Notes and Contacts into the icloud folders in Outlook, but now everything works and I only display and use the iCloud accounts in Notes and Contacts. Apple realizes that this is an issue for those of us that were previously using Yahoo and equivalents for wireless synching and they provded my support free. Usually they charge $27. All is well.

    I have problem with my i phone 5 i can not make call and sms do please help me

    I think you don't understand the purpose of this forum. This is a user-to-user support forum. You're not talking to Apple. You're not talking to your cellular carrier.
    One last time and then I'm done:
    You need to call your cellular carrier and get this sorted out. No one here can help you.

    When did you upgrade to 4.1? 4.1 is no longer signed by Apple. It's no longer possible to (legitimately) install 4.1.

  • How can i increase battery life in my iphone 5 after ios7 upgrade

    will apple fix this huge problem of half of battery life in my verizon iphone 5 after ios7 upgrade? or should i just go back to ios6?

    all I can say is APPLE has no official way to go back to a previous version of OS X.  Perhaps there are hacks, but I cant speak of them here.  Also, that link was only given to you an hour ago, so give it more time to see if it helps with battery life until a more stable version of iOS 7 is released.  Im not happy about the battery life either.

  • Can't receive calls on my new Iphone 3GS

    I'm a new Telus customer since yesterday. I can't receive any calls on my Iphone 3Gs except if the caller is on the Telus network.
    Telus confirmed that this ain't a network problem. They beleive it might be a problem whith codes inside the phone? Sim card maybe?
    At this time, the technical support at Telus can't help me since their system is down.
    However, I was with bell before and transfered my phone number to telus...could that be one of the reason?
    Anyone experienced the same problem?

    I bought the I phone on the 5th From Telus, I can not recieve calls. When I call it it says "the number you have called can not be completed as dialed", When I turn my I phone off than on I get a message saying "SIM has sent a text message" three times and then "ME has registered a temporary error". Does anybody know anything about this?
    P.S.
    I am going into Edmonton tomorrow and I am going to stop at the APPLE shop in West Ed mall and see what they say or can do.

  • Can't synch Notes or Contacts from iPhone 3GS after upgrade to iOS5

  • HT201269 Can I use my old iPhone 3GS after I upgraded to a 4S?

    I upgraded from an iPhone 3GS to an iPhone 4S, but i am keeping the old 3GS for my son to use as an iPod touch.  Can I sync both the old and new phone to the same computer?

    Yes, see http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3406.  You can also sync both to the same computer.  iTunes will recognize them as separate devices and you can set separate sync settings for each.  This may be of interest too: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1495.

  • Can't sync music on 3GS after IOS5 upgrade

    Upgraded my 3gs to ios5, got an error state, restored, got "An error occurred while restoring this iPhone (-34)", but successfully restored after a couple of tries, but now I can't synch any music to the phone. My Apps,contacts, and photos are there, but no music.  When I try to synch the music, It says syncing, and "completes" but the music app shows "No Content".  I tried unchecking al music in itunes, syncing, then checking some music and resynching, thinking it my clear something out, but to no effect.  It's as if it thinks it's adding music, bt nothings there.

    my problem occurred when I upgraded to IOS5 on my iPhone 4.  I received an unable to sync message that indicated that there was no space left on my iPhone; and a "Other" Capacity indicator appeared on the bottom of the iPhone device sync screen (in yellow color) and noted an overage of 12GB!  Ofcourse, prior to the upgrade I actually had 6GB free on my 32GB iPhone.  So, there is a bug.  The following link indicates a few solutions and hopefully it will answer your concern.  The link is http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1503
    However, I had to restore as the first two solutions didn't work.  Furthermore, about 3.3GB of "Other" remains while I synced up.  Clearly, the problem has not been resolved.  Apple owes me and you community members a patch to fix this bug.  Basically, I have spent about two hours fixing this and I still cannot use 3.3GB of my iPhone space.

  • Can't recover 3GS after IOS5 upgrade attempt - phone no longer seen in iTunes

    Tried upgrade on 3GS to IOS5, got msg that iTunes detected phone in recovery mode and I must restore. iTunes no longer sees the phone so restore doesn't work. Win XP sees the phone driver when I connect the phone, and driver says it is working properly. Have went through the entire support topic "iPhone not appearing in iTunes" and found no problem.  Rebooted computer 3 times and tried all USB ports -  iTunes still doesn't see the phone. Any ideas on how to recover this phone?

  • SMS Alerts Not Ringing on 3GS After iOS5 Upgrade?

    Hi folks,
    Odd issue with SMS ringtones after upgrading to iOS5. Despite the phone not being in silent mode and a text message tone being set up, my phone does not play the new text tone when I receive a new iMessage (seems to work for standard SMS messages though). This is for when the phone is locked, by the way; I know that there are no sound alerts configurable for the main notification area.
    This is annoying as it seems to only pop up an alert on the lock screen without actually giving me any audio notification. So if my phone's in my pocket or even if I'm just not looking at it, I don't know that I've gotten a new message.
    Any idea what I might have configured wrong?

    Can you explain what you mean by a full restore? Do you mean wiping the phone and restoring from iTunes?

  • HT1430 I just updated to ios 6.1.3 and I lost all the music that was in my iphone 3GS after the upgrade

    I tries using itunes to sync the music again but it failed to transferred any songs over to the iphone.  When I click on the MUSIC icon in the iphone, it shows NO CONTENT.

    Have you followed http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1559 ?
    Also try settings>general>reset>reset all settings
    If you have followed that article and restored your phone and set it up as new and you're still having that issue you may call and explain you followed the article and are still having the problem. Most likely they will either set up a replacement for you. If they ask you to set up the one time phone support agreement, and they assist you with a restore again, they won't bill you if they end up having to repair it.
