I got a Nexus 4 from Ebay. Cellphone is in flawless condition, it probably has less than a couple of months of use. Unfortunately, I am not able to pick up a signal in any way. I just get a constant "No Service" message, and occasionally it will jump to "Emergency Calls Only".
Testing menu says Signal Strenght is 0 dBm 99 asu, no neighboring cells and location is unknown.
I've tried changing the prefered network to WCDMA only (as suggested in other threads), also tried with the other available settings with no luck. Tried playing around with the Change Bands setting as well but it makes no difference
Tried with a few different sim cards as well but that didn't work either, just got signal momentarily and but it would go on and off.
Cellphone came with 4.2.2 and I upgraded to 4.3 as requested by the system. Same issue.
Tried basebands 48 and 84.
Tried CM 10.2.
Replaced SIM card with a brand new one.
Cellphone doesn't appear to be blacklisted either.
Not sure what to do next. I'll try to get in contact with the seller but I don't expect much from him or eBay. Maybe I can sell off the device very cheap for spare parts, or send it for repair somewhere? Leave it as a dev device (which would virtually indistinguishable from a N5 that I plan to get anyway), Anyone else has any other suggestions or ideas?
