Thread: iPhone new cellular push notification

  1. #1

    Angry iPhone new cellular push notification

    I got this push notification friday night regarding new network update (from SingTel).
    Now, whenever I lose network, I get a popup:

    Network Lost
    Your selected cellular network is no longer available. You can choose a different network in Settings.
    [Dismiss] [Settings]
    This happened to me 10 times during breakfast (bad reception area).

    How can I get rid of this annoying popup now?!?!

    I asked some colleagues, and 1 Starhub user got the update push on saturday, but he selected 'cancel'.

    I got it last nite & I touch yes to update.
    Go to settings, carrier, uncheck automatic & wait for the search bar to search the different carriers & chek your subscribed mobile network.
    This should solve the problem. I did that to my phone. I think if you select automatic, it'll lock on to any other mobile operators, & like mine it has MY Celcom & Digi which I don't think I want to be switched automaticall, lets say I'm in Woodlands near JB & I get hook on to their network & I'll be paying roaming fees?
    Maybe some other Iphone expert can enlighten us on this?
    Take the shot!

    Yeah I already had SingTel selected and not automatic. It still happens.
    I selected automatic and rebooted my phone, then selected SingTel again. Will see if it happens again

    I lost connection at Springleaf Tower McDonalds earlier, didn't get any popup
    Seems like toggling from automatic/SingTel + phone reboot fixed it.

    make sure the cell phone you are using is a Mac product. Mac product should not have problem and is easy to use.

    I rarely come across such problem maybe becos I haven't upgraded to iOS4. Maybe they will launch another carrier update to rectify such problems ba. It can be frustrating at times

    The problem hasn't happened again. So toggle to automatic, then back to your carrier, and maybe a phone reboot. Fixed it for me.

    The settings was not automatic but chose carrier manually.

    Could it be because my iPhone is not on the latest OS? I'm still on 4.0.

    Ok, finally I got the pop-up.
    I was in the MRT train (undergound) this afternoon, the pop-up popped up
    Could this be due to blind spots or due to weak receiver or just drop signals? It happenned twice
    So what's the point of selecting a different network if its the phone's problem & can we really select another network & make calls as normal? Then how are we billed after that?

    The thing is, whenever you lost signal, the pop-up will appear. This is really irritating. Users can just refer to the signal bars right? Not sure which dumb-dump programmed this to appear whenever the phone loss signal?
