Default Phone lost signal and IMEI number..

Just randomly today, my Galaxy Nexus lost the signal to the network, its IMEI number and the baseband version.

It also keeps switching Airplane mode OFF and ON but there is no symbol for it on top.

The phone is NOT rooted. What should I do?

Thanks.

EDIT: I reset the phone, wiping all the data, and that has not solved the problem.

Hardware problem you'll need a replacement.

Sorry...

How do you know? Can you explain?

This happened out of the blue, randomly.. the phone wasn't dropped or damaged.

Well to me it sounds like the /efs partition of your emmc is corrupt.

Either way as far as I know there is no way to restore efs without a prior backup.

But I thought there was a way to restore it without backing up the EFS folder..

Well for your sake I hope there is a way.

When this happened to me I had to get a new galaxy nexus.

Hopefully your right and someone can help.
