    Just had a iphone 6 come in with “no service”. Using a good sim card, phone reads it as verizon sim…tried att sim card and phone reads it as att sim. *#06# shows imei, about phone shows imei and baseband…I have reset, updated software, reset Network Settings, Itunes updates carrier settings on whichever Sim is inserted and recognizes it. No cold solder joints in sim tray, replaced charging port with new antenna, reballed baseband and jumpers on u1 and v1 but still shows “no service”. Any ideas?
