GSM losing a network each 20-30 second

Yes I can, I live in Tbilisi, Georgia (Former Soviet Union), my mobile phone
service provider is Geocell. About one week ago, as well I receive Neo I put
inside my old SIM card, and I have that problem with reconnecting to GSM
network. First of all I thought that might be a problem of SIM card, and two
days ago I did change my old card with new one (with same number), but
problem did not solved. Also I notice that in the evening hours (after
10..11 PM) device working quite stable. Maybe it because of a lot of
connections to a GSM station.
	Also I want to try other provider SIM cards.

If you need some extra information - please feel free to ask me and I will
try to do all in my power ;) 

And I want ask again, what about restoring GSM modem functionality after
hanging, is it possible to do it without restarting whole device? (Power
Off/On does not help)

George, can you tell me what kind of SIM card are you using? Did it come 
with a phone or some other way, like pre-paid? Also, where are you located?

This might help us figure out if it's the same problem.
