Here is a list of of iPhone no service solutions and steps that will hopefully fix the issue if your iPhone has no service. None of these are in particular order of what works the best so try some out and comment below on how you went.
iPhone no service solutions #1
A simple fix for iPhone no service is to simply restart the iPhone. Hold the power switch and home button together for 10 seconds. This is done in case you went into any signal dead areas, sometimes the iPhone will think it is still in the location where there is no signal and does not update the signal strength. This will restart your iPhone but you will not lose any media, contacts, data, etc.

This problem is widely known by iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S owners as the notorious service drop out caused by holding the iPhone antenna firmly. This is a design flaw on Apples behalf as when your holding the iPhone firmly it completes part of the antenna circuit through your hand and causes the signal to drop. The black lines that separate the aluminium antenna is meant to prevent this but can be problematic. The simplest way to bypass this is to use a iPhone case or bumper so that your hand does not touch the actual antenna.

According to a post by iphonehacks a sim card tray issue may be causing complete service drop off, partial drop off and slow download speeds. “The metal part of the sim card is not centered and is contacting the sim tray. The sim tray is steel and the sim tray is contacting the outer antenna band. Once you touch the phone, this could be causing a sim issue. If when you touch the antenna line on the lower left it changes the state of frequency, power or what ever, it might actually be messing with the sim card. The metal on the sim is connected to the sim tray, the sim tray is connected to the antenae and the antenae is connected to your hand when you touch the phone. Take a look at your sim card and see if the metal is just off center enough to touch the tray.”
