This problem suddenly came out of nowhere.

I've had the same rom (paranoid android 3.99 RC2) running on my phone for 6 months and everything works perfectly until one day as I'm driving home the GPS goes wonky.

I restart my phone and then boom, no cell service on my phone.

I tried to:

wipe cache, dalvik

shutdown and reboot multiple times,

install a fresh copy of the rom,

tried other roms,

made sure i wiped system and storage when flashing new rom,

and tried to insert, reinsert sim card multiple times.

Strangely enough when this problem happens, the home button laso seems to act like its unlocking the device...

What do you guys think?

I'm thinking maybe I got some water on my device and ended up having it seep into the home button and the back of the device.

Sounds like a modem issue, might just need updating to the latest for you device...

Agree with the updating modem?

Have you popped open the phone and checked the water indicators ? Check for water invasion, that would answer whether it's a factor or not.

I flashed to the stock rom and unrooted, which flashed the UCALJ2 Modem. It's working fine now on Paranoid 3.60.

I downgraded to that one since I never had any troubles with that rom, I kinda liked that version anyway,

but if I get any issues I will post here again.

That's possibly because I have a lot going on. And I try my best to have it UPDATED with the latest stuff.
You wanna know when the last time I updated, then look at the top of the OP page. Updated yesterday btw
Modems are updated to the latest one....
