No Service problem on Fascinate
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.

Put this on the sd card,,,not in any folders
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 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.
