Network connectivity errors can affect the overall experience that you can get on a smartphone. Having a stable and good signal reception is essential for you to send and receive SMS and perform outbound and inbound calls. But what will you do if you’re seeing No Service on your smartphone?

No service error on your device simply means that there is no signal reception that your phone is getting. A lot of factors could cause this issue on your phone. If you have a BlackBerry Classic smartphone and is showing No Service error, fix it by following the recommendations listed below. 


If you are getting no service on your BB Classic, no network signal or emergency calls only, follow these steps:

    • Go into Settings > Networks and Connections > Mobile Network.
    • Tap on Network Technology and select HSPA+/UMTS/GSM.
  • Turn your BlackBerry Classic OFF completely, wait 10 seconds and then turn it back on again.
    • Try connecting manually to your network by performing the following steps:
      • Go into Settings > Networks and Connections > Mobile Network.
      • Scroll down to Network Selection Mode and set it to “Manual” then tap on Scan.
      • Once you have a list of available network you can select the one you wish to connect to.
    • If the above options didn’t work, make sure your BlackBerry Classic is up-to-date by going into Settings > Software Updates and installing any updates available.
    • Make sure your SIM card is inserted properly into your device.
    • You can also wipe out your smartphone.
      • To factory reset your BlackBerry Classic, access Settings > Security and Privacy > Security wipe. If you have an external memory card installed, decrypt your media card before the security wipe and enter blackberry into the text field and tap Delete Data.

If none of the steps above worked for you, consider checking your SIM card and device with your provider and possibly sending the phone for repair.

It is important to know if your carrier provider has any ongoing server maintenance as it also affects the signal reception on your device. Feel free to contact them before going to a technician for phone repair.
