My phone has been "searching for service" all day but it was previously working last night. Any other similar issues? Troubleshooting tips are appreciated!

I have a US-Canadian plan and live in British Columbia on Vancouver Island.

I have already completed a soft reset several times and traveled to a few

different locations today and the "searching for service" status did not

change. Thanks!

Try putting on WiFi then put on 3G/4G.  See if those work.  If either one is working, then there is something else wrong.  Make sure you have mobile data ENABLED in the preferences for WiFi.  Also, you have to make sure you put in the password for the WiFi, also make sure you didn't check the box that says something like automatically drop WiFi connection if connection gets weak.  Try all of that out and see if u still have a problem.  I have a feeling you have data disabled instead of enabled.

Good luck
