Hi I'm looking for help with my i9300. I had an aborted root, the phone froze during root and eventually I had to restart, I was able to re-install the stock ROM and the phone seems to work fine, apart from one major problem: It won't recognise any mobile networks. The phone won't recognise my network (3), or simcards from any other network. I have re-entered the APN information manually, but this has made no difference.

All other aspects of the device work fine, wifi, apps etc.

I'd appreciate any advice on steps I can take to resolve this.

I have obviously tried standard stuff such as full factory reset.

The phone still displays coverage bars as if it was connected to a network, but when I try to dial out or send messages I get an error message "unable to register on network"

Check the imei number matches the one under the battery, if it has changed then you have major problems without a backup of the efs partition. Search and read for hundreds of similar threads, there is a sticky in the general forum.
