Have you set it to 3G only under network settings? Try toggling 2G only and see if it works.

Hi guys,
I have same problem with my HTC Desire S. Got it from eBay.
It is not asking for any simlock codes so i'm takeing it to b simlock free.
But the problem is "no service"

So i did this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1429215

But still nothing, and yes, i have my back cover on
The only thing that makes me sad is, there is a little "x" where is should show reception.

I have checked it on http://www.numberingplans.com/?page=analysis&sub=imeinr
and its sayin that it is fine. Phone is not locked or anything.

Plz help
