sorry. that didnt work either. initially the APN file had only one or two words in it. but i used the one shown in the thread you mentioned as a tem,plate and edited my details onto it. Restored it using the app you mentioned but still the phone shows mobile network as turning on.
I think i should mention, that im in india, and to get the phone to work here i had to get the meid changed by a guy my dad knows. Initially the data used to work at 1x but i did a prl update and after that only calling and sms works.
