iPhone 4S Can not Call/Receive Text/Receive Anything

My phone's cell service has been iffy all day. It was working and then would go out for an hour or two and I would receive many text messages at once.

I have reset my phone as a new phone and reset my cellular data. Any ideas?

*228 option 1 or 2 there might be an outage.

I had the problem of that the phone used to be so good coverage in the spots that are bad now. 3g for an hour in 1spot then shouts down 1x 4bars. *228 works but it takes time to jump up to 3G. Restarting it works then goes down. I put in a trouble ticket for it but said it was marginal in the area 3 mi away but I see to have great service so then they replaced it because it was only 1 iPhone out of 3 so they thought something was up.
