    OK so my buddy gave me his old droid and it just stopped receiving signal, it has the little 'x' above the bars, airplane mode is off, I have already hard reset, the bill is paid, and I have never had a problem with my service in this area before. Also my phone is not rooted. Help please, I hope I posted this in the right place, thank you in advance, I will search the forums for a similar thread but I really need my phone and I'm hoping someone can help me before I come across it.

    You have activated it with a carrier?
    What did they say when you called them?

    Check your signal strength... I think you can do this depending on the android version you have and it can be see from setting>about phone>status>"Signal strength"

    If your in "good" service area you should not see anything more negative than -110 or else you will struggle making phone calls and other services.

    Make sure your phone is activated also... this could be a reason why it is not detecting service.
