Customer Question
I have an iPhone...

I have an iPhone 6s and for the last two days, I can have it sitting right next to the router and it has no service. I run strictly on internet because I'm in Afghanistan. Can you please help me restore my lifeline.

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your iPhone?

Ver 11.1.2

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your iPhone? What have you tried so far?

It's only been a couple of days. I read some information that I needed to reset it so I did. No different.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

That's all. I just need my phone back. I'm a long way from home.

I will do this again. I told the first lady that I had already reset it. Hang on.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
NEGATIVE.......I am in Afghanistan. I don't want to be charged for every piece of information and advice. Now if you will hang on, I am going to settings to reset. Please not more charges.
Mac Support Specialist: Richard, Apple Software Engineer replied 7 months ago

You are referring to a service the website offers, which being optional, can be ignored if you do not wish to use it.

Please ignore it and reply here to my last instructions I sent you please

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Right now it is just kind of flashing off and on. It comes back to no service, and I get the same two unopened text messages that I received 6 days ago.
Mac Support Specialist: Richard, Apple Software Engineer replied 7 months ago

Thanks, ***** ***** you do the instructions I provided?

I have now enabled the wi fi onto the apple encrypted network. There is no service.
Mac Support Specialist: Richard, Apple Software Engineer replied 7 months ago

Ok, now are you trying to get a service via wifi or a cell network?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I am in Afghanistan.....it has to be by wi fi. I own the router and it is an Apple as well.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I believe they call the router an airport express. That is what I'm using right now for my computer.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Richard......are you still there
Mac Support Specialist: Richard, Apple Software Engineer replied 7 months ago

ok, now on the iPhone, go to settings, wifi, do you see your wifi network?

- Yes I am here, please allow a minute for me to respond

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I am there now. My wi fi is on and my network is checked and has full signal
Mac Support Specialist: Richard, Apple Software Engineer replied 7 months ago

ok, so it shows now as connected to wifi?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
on the screen the green bar is on the network is checked.......NO SERVICE is in the Upper right hand corner
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Sorry.....make that left hand corner
Mac Support Specialist: Richard, Apple Software Engineer replied 7 months ago

yes thats referring to the Cell Service, it has no service as it is not connected to the cell network.

But it is connected to wifi.

That is expected

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
It always has wi fi in the upper left hand corner, and when there is a cell provider, that is there too. It is not connected to the internet, and my vpn is not connected.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I can call you on a landline and it would make this much easier.
Mac Support Specialist: Richard, Apple Software Engineer replied 7 months ago

Yes, if it says no service it is referring to no connection to the cell network.

Do you actually have a valid cell network there?

This is different to the wifi network.

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No, but most normally, I run on VZW and I have internet calling on VZW. VZW-WiFi is always up in the left hand corner along with the VPN and a bar count.
Mac Support Specialist: Richard, Apple Software Engineer replied 7 months ago

How do you receive VZW-WiFi in Afghanistan?

Via which device is giving you this?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I've been here two years, and I always have. I can't explain it beyond that. I have an iPhone 6s. I was told by Verizon before I got here that would be the case. Until a couple of days ago......it was.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
This will be much easier for me if you will give me a phone number so that I can land line you.
Mac Support Specialist: Richard, Apple Software Engineer replied 7 months ago

Calls are additional costs which you do not wish to have.

I need to know the make and model of your wifi router please.

Can you tell me this?

Apple Airport Express
Mac Support Specialist: Richard, Apple Software Engineer replied 7 months ago

Ok remove the power to it, wait 5 minutes, connect the power and tell me how it then functions please

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I have already updated it and downloaded the latest firmware. Like I said earlier, that is the router I'm working from right now on my MacBook. If I remove the power. I will lose this session. I have already done all of this before I got on this line. Some knucklehead on a blog suggested I put my phone in the refrigerator. I did that too.
Mac Support Specialist: Richard, Apple Software Engineer replied 7 months ago

No problem, I will opt out for another expert that can assist you further

Thank you and all the best.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
