Question [Q] RARE no WCDMA or 3G conection at all

Hi, My name is javier, I have bought one nexus 4 8Gb orange phone, but it is sim-unlocked so I can use my MVNO ( mobile virtual operator network) But I am unable to use 3G or WCDMA band in spain.

I Know here are some problems about MVNO and 4.3 and 4.4 and 4.4.2 Android versions, but my problem is not this one. On a Vodafone SIM Card, I am unable to get internet also on this unit. The rest of the phone works flawessly, but 3G does not. I am starting to think that GSM chip is broken. But Hey 2G Networks works well no signal lost, perfectly clear voice on dialing, and constant 20kb internet data speed. No matter is an MVNO or a real operator like Vodafone.

Searching the net, i came over this:

Nexus 4 Suffering from 3G and 4. Upgrade

And for all of you that are not going to take a deep read, let me tell, that they say there is an error on 4.3 and newer Android framework and Radio Baseband version. So people get unconsistent 3G connection. Well mine is really consistent. No conection at all never. So I think this is not my problem, although I have tried a bunch of roms even all google ones, all basebands and a couple of sims from diferent company.

Anyway, a quick fix is quoted here: Quick 3G Fix But I do not understand what is this or what I am supposed to do with that. Can someone help me with this?

And, after that, I start to look at something more, like Sim Unlocking is snot well done and 3g Band is still locked. Havent tried it with Orange sim as I do not have any. Is there any secret menu where network locks are shown?

And moreover, How can I trace what is happening to my chip? If someone has made hybrid basebands to unlock 4G, there has to be a way to track what is happening to radio basebands while they are working...and perhaps, I can gather some good info to work with...

One more thing on *#*#4636#*#* menu, I can force WCDMA or GSM or the rest options, If I use Force WCDMA, I get signal lost for ever, If only GSM or WCDMA Preferred, it has signal but only gprs internet conection. This is with ONO (MVNO). But with Vodafone, I get HSPA Conection but no internet at all.

Really annoyed with this, hope someone is able to help me with this.

Thanks to all in advance.

Nobody? well i will try to find out myself.

Anyway I have started to know something about android tracking with logcat, and would like to know if there is any way to check all the traces of the modem to check if the chip is faulty or is a driver issue and i have to learn to modify it myself. Thanks.
