    Searching SVC???

    My phone (Samsung R450) is suddenly showing Searching SVC and I cannot make any calls, send texts, etc.

    When trying to make a phone call I get the error message: CDMA service not available.

    When attempting to send a text I get a: "Set time and date" error.

    WTH?

    Does anyone know what is going on? I did not drop the phone (have not once since I purchased it), had just sent and received a couple of texts right before it did this, the phone is less than a year old, etc.

    I have never had this problem before.

    And this happens on a day that I was to receive a very important phone call.

    LOL

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Glad I am not the only one with this problem at least!

    And mods, sorry for posting the same question. As you can see, they (the two threads) were posted just 2 minutes apart so I apologize in advance.

    That's not unusual for Sprint.

    I'm having issues in the Northbay, or 707 area code.

    No, it's very specific to the bay area, like the east bay

    My payment is due Thursday... wonder if they would shut off my service if my credit card unexpectedly "went down" for some hours into Friday?



    I cannot complain too much with how little I pay for GPS, unlimited everything, etc. Though I wonder how many calls and texts I missed today?

    Oh well, Que Sera Sera!
