BlackBerry provides a stand-alone fix you can download and install at your leisure.

If you have an AT&T BlackBerry Priv and have been affected by the "no service" bug some have been seeing since September, BlackBerry has your fix.

It comes in the form of a small app from AT&T and BlackBerry, and you can download it directly from BlackBerry. You'll need to temporarily enable the Unknown sources setting that allows applications outside of Google Play to be installed, but you'll be able to enable it again once you're finished.

The folks at CrackBerry are on top of things and ready to offer assistance to anyone who needs it, and the simple instructions from the BlackBerry Knowledge Base are below.

Install the BlackBerry "No Service" Prevention Tool.
