fitwilsons, I am so sorry to hear about the issues with cellular service you had when you powered your phone back on. However, I am glad to hear that it is back up and running for you. It is common for a device to need some time to get fully connected to the data network after it has been powered back on. I would like to ask just to make sure that your device is working correctly, does your iPhone have a history of having issues like these?
