Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.

So I have an iPhone 4. It's on AT&T, which may or may not be significant. I dunno.
I woke up this morning, and my phone has been acting oddly. It will have 3-4 bars and 3G, and stay that way for about 5-10 seconds. After that, it says 'searching' for about 45 seconds, and then says 'no connection' for about another 30 or so. Then it repeats. Over and over.
I've gone to AT&T, and they swapped the SIM card with no change in the weirdness.
They told me to go to the Apple store, and I'm going after work, but my phone is out of warranty.
Any chance they'll still swap it out for me? I haven't dropped it, and it's been in a case since the day I bought it (release day, stupid me.)

    How close are you to the end of your warranty? They may have a "grace period." At least, this is what they told my dad the last time he had to replace his current-gen iPod Nano (this makes the third one in a year).

    I'm going to ask a dumb question, but just in case: You have power cycled the phone, right? Every now and then my iPhone 4 will start doing a similar no-service/full-service dance and all it takes to set it right is to turn it off and then back on.

    Yeah, I rebooted it several times throughout the day.
    My phone was previously jailbroken, which I don't THINK caused the issue, as I went to the legit version with iOS5. They ended up doing a factory reset with the SIM card out, which fixed the issue.
    So if you have this problem eventually, there you go!

    And props to Eric at the Apple store for fixing my shit.
    All for free. Huzzah!

    Apple store guys have always been great for me. In the future, if you are not too far out of warranty, they'll still hook you up.
