    I have a blackra1n (tethered) jailbroken 3G running 3.1.2. Sometimes, when I leave it alone for a while (ie. at school in my pocket) the cell service dies. It just shows 5 flat lines. The wi-fi, 3G, and EDGE still work though. I've tried almost everything. In and out of airplane mode, respringing, deleting recent cydia installs, but nothing seems to work. Anyone else have this problem? or a solution? Tell me if you need more info.

    If it doesnt have any determental effect id say leave it. But if your anal about it, you could always DFU restore

    Well there is one small side effect of losing service. I cant make calls or text anyone. The only way to fix it when its like this is to reboot which requires a computer that I only have at home.

    are you on T-Mobile? Or AT&T? or Some other carrier I haven't heard of because those are the only 2 US GSM Carriers?

    Try going to SBsettings and turning Edge, 3G, and Wifi off and then turning them back on again.
