Question [Q] Signal Drop... but Not Lost

Hello all!

I was wondering if anyone has been experiencing signal loss (but not 100% cut-out) when the phone is asleep? Like if I have my phone on my desk, leave it alone for 20 minutes, I am greeted with no signal. I have never dropped a call (aside from the usual places) but it is just odd.

I have attached a screenshot taken just seconds after waking my phone. Notice the bars are greyed out (white shows a signal), but it is not the outline which would indicate that I am not connected to a tower, meaning no service.

I am on AT&T and all I have done is switch the SIM from my AT&T-Branded HTC One, to the Nexus 5. I have LTE and H+ but I'm not sure if there are any modifications I needed to make to the APN, or if I should just get a new SIM card from AT&T?

Forgive the n00b question, I am very new to GSM-based devices. I did not find any relevant posts about this issue.

Thanks in advance
