The sim works in another phone just fine...
Does anyone why it won't connect to the network? There was an update on my phone about a week ago and i did update it to the latest software.
Very frustrating. hope someone can help.
then the following does NOT apply to you.!!!
Have you tried this:
You can Odin flash the MK2 modem.bin while on any Jellybean Touchwiz 4.2.2 based rom
or ODIN flash it after flashing the Infamous v9, Wicked v9.1, or any M919 MK2 JB based
Touchwiz 4.3 roms. Either way it makes no difference.
What does make a difference is to follow this step by step exactly.
#1: Manually power down the phone by using the power button only.
#2: Start ODIN and put the MODEM.BIN file into ODIN'S PHONE slot.
#3: Put the phone into download mode using the volume down and power button.
#4: Plug the USB cable into the phone and into the computer.
#5: Make sure that ODIN'S [COM:xx] lights up.
#6: Un-Check the Auto-Reboot in ODIN and click START.
#7: After its done flashing unplug the usb cable.
#8: Manually power off the phone by using the power button only.
#9: Wait 20 or so seconds before you power on the phone.
After doing this the MK2 baseband should show up in About Device.
Once it displays MK2 you can flash any MK2 JB TW 4.3 custom cwm/twrp zip file roms unless you have
already flashed it before flashing the modem.bin in which case you are done and ready to use the phone.
NOTE: this modem.bin is the official Tmobile M919 MDL radio which is meant to work anywhere in the USA.
Since none of these 4.2.2 & 4.3 custom zip file roms contain radios you are left with the Canadian modem
in your phone. That's why this step by step should work fine for you.
The only thing which may not work perfectly would be LTE because that's a separate radio (non-hlos.bin)
which must be copied from a MDL based Tmobile M919 Jellybean TW official 4.3 or 4.2.2 Odin flash TAR
Here is the direct download link for the Tmobile 4.3 M919 MK2 modem.bin:
Have a great day, enjoy!
Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
(unless you type very fast).
