Hi recently bought a Motorola Defy+ 2.3.6, of course which has Motoblur I want to get rid of. I tried a number of custom ROMs (CM7.2 & WhiteRabbitEdition), I could get them to install and run fine. The problem is that after a few minutes (or hours), the phone seems to lose connection to the mobile network. The phone still shows 2 or 3 bars of coverage, but cannot make a call or send SMS. Reboot fixes the problem, but only for a while. I am on the Telstra 850/2100 network in Australia, baseband was set using baseband switcher. Wifi seems to be working fine.

I have tried:
- cm72-20120429-NIGHTLY-Defy+.zip from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1618904.
- an earlier Epsylon3 build
- WhiteRabbitEdition v1.5.1 & v1.3.1 from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1510063.

No such problem occurs when I revert to standard Motorola build.

Any ideas what could be wrong? Is anyone else successfully using custom ROM on Telstra?

Leigh.

Yes, I changed the baseband to Australia -> Telstra (850/2100).

Thanks for the suggestion, it does seem to fix the problem, providing I leave it on 2G only. If I switch back to 3G, the problem re-occurs, albeit seems to take a bit longer to happen. 2G is fine for calls and SMS, but if I want to use high speed data, this is a bit of a pain. Also Telstra has broader coverage on 3G rather than 2G.

I also noticed that once it has "gone deaf" to the network, the "Search networks" never finds any mobile networks either. Also, I cannot change the "Use only 2G networks" setting any more.

My Defy+ model number is MB526.

Just tried update-cm-7.2-20120507-Defy+-signed.05072012-0137 from http://fitsnugly.euroskank.com/giggl...id=jordan_plus, but sill no good . this one seemed to last quite a bit longer before the problem occurred, not sure if that was statistically significant though.

Any other ideas?

Thanks for your help,
Leigh.
