If you mean bug #1024 the workaround is to prevent deep sleep of the GSM 
modem using AT%SLEEP=2. I think most of the distros now include a patch 
to detect frequent reregistration and issue this command if it is found. 
  They may reenable deep sleep some time later in case the problem has 
gone away.
