I'm unable to make/receive any call or send/receive any text. I think, it happens when I don't use my phone for a long period, say 5 to 6 hours. Last night, I made a call just fine, then fell asleep. In the morning, when I reached office, my colleague informed me that he was trying to call me but was unable to connect; later he dropped me a message. Then, upon restarting my phone I got his message and other messages about who else was trying to call me.

I have to make a dummy call every now and then, just to make sure that my phone is in working condition. Or restart my phone once a day at least. My contacts complained me several times that they were unable to connect to me, and in the end, they dropped me a text. But, I never received any text or miss calls from them, until I restart my phone.

The worst part is, you will never know that your phone is not working properly until you try to call somebody or text.

Are the phone slowing down overall? Might me a memory leak.

Not really, no slowing down has been experienced so far.

I had this problem recently and it was due to switching SIM cards while the phone was still on. Restarting network services didn't help, only a reboot did the trick. Maybe the SIM card slot in your device is a bit loose?

I had it too, more than once. Jolla working properly, but the baseband chip completely down. The network symbols were indicating this (no network, no internet), but that's not really eye-catching. I wish I could have a configurable alarm or notification if the network connection fails for a while.

I had the problem once since updating to I was not reachable by phone for nearly one day. Restarting the network using the utilities did not work for me. I had to restart the phone. Maybe this is related to Mobile Network issue since the last update (SMS,MMS,3G).
