    Several weeks ago I rooted my Fascinate without any issues.

    It has been running fine until recently when I started getting the no service icon where the bars normally would appear.

    I am in an area with very good service, so I don't think that is the issue.

    I have restarted the phone, removed the battery, etc. This hasn't helped.

    I have not had a chance to experiment with moving to a new cell area, so it is possible that they may be doing work in the area, but this is happening fairly often now, so I'm starting to think it may be the phone.

    Could the rooting of the phone cause this, or is it more likely a bad phone.

    I'm thinking the best option is to unroot the phone and bring it back to stock so I can return it at the Verizon store, unless someone has another suggestion.

    Thanks.

    No rooting would not cause this....what modifications did you make after you rooted

    No mods, that I know of.

    The only apps that I've added that require rooting are:

    BlackList
    Super User

    I'm thinking this is a phone issue, but just wanted to make sure.

    Try doing the over the air update to EA28 you can always reroot later.... this will give you a new radio on your phone and maybe able to correct your reception problem.......as long you didnt remove or change any stock apps you should be able to update with any problems

    Can I do that without any service?

    And if so, how.

    Thanks again. I'm really hoping to just fix this rather than unroot.

    Put this on the sd card,,,not in any folders
    http://adrynalyne.us/files/patches/DI01_to_DL09.zip
    rename it to update

    then shut off your phone
    hold down volume up+down+power
    samsung will flash twice , after the second time let go
    this will take you into recovery
    then scroll down to apply sdcard:update.zip hit the home button to select
    this is the official signed update and will update your phone

    I got that to load. I can select the file by moving the highlighted text with the volume.

    How do I select that? I pushed the power button, that doesn't seem to do anything.

    Thanks again. This has been very helpful.

    I'm getting an "!" inside of a triangle and the little Android dude?

    Does that mean it's updating or do I need to start over?

    is there any data on there that you need to back up or ....are you willing to flash completely to stock,,,this will erase all your data and leave your phone in a fresh out of the box stock

    I have written down all of the apps I need to replace. I've also backed up everything with Titanium Backup to the SC card and then copied the entire SD card to my laptop. Not sure if that is enough, but there really isn't anything on there I really need.

    So, basically I'm willing to lose data.
