    Top left of my iPhone screen to the left of the WIFI icon it shows No Signal although I am online. Is there a way to change it? I haven't found a way, yet. TIA

    To the left of WiFi is the cell provider; mine shows AT&T and further left is the signal strength.

    Settings -> General -> About
    network name is the cell provider

    IMEI is the number needed to activate service.

    Ok, my bad. This cell phone is not for calling anybody, just email & wifi. The same exact thing happened with my 4s a few years back but don't remember what I did to change it.My carrier is Sprint but no phone number, never will have one, thank you :)

    ok - - *IF* you can connect to your WiFi router, then the email and browser will work.

    On my iPhone 4s I have, it too had no phone number yet it still shows 4 or 5 circles instead of No Service. I'm puzzled.

    IMO, it is connecting to the provider - - you just don't have the account activated??

    While the status is inconsistent, the question is WHY CARE if you never intend to use the device for calling? As long as the Wifi takes you where you need to go - - S M I L E and move on.

    Exactly. I just thought there might be a way to do such. Thank you for your patience & if we're lucky, somebody will find this thread 5 years from now & add to it, lol :)
