Thanks for your reply. the steps you mentioned have worked like a charm. My mobile works on 2G and 3G just fine.

I went to one of the local service shops here in Bangalore(India), and have forced him to just try the steps as is using SPT.

There was lot of hesitation by the service guy(just like the Samsung service guys), but I had asked him to just do it and at the end it just worked.

Thanks a bunch. I am so happy

unfortunately there was a bug in the 2G/GSM network

they fixed it now ..
so all you have to do is find any mobile repair shop near you that has the SPT Box
connect your N9005 to the Box using USB in ( dm+modem+adb ) mode by dialing *#0808# in Samsung's Dialer ..
Choose N900w8 from the list then click Repair 3G Network ( this will Fix the 2G network )
then choose N9005 again and press repair 3G network again ( this will reFix the 3G network with 2G working too )

this will not restore the original IMEI - S/N but the phone will be fully functioning
I'm having this issue as well as the imei issues; and as such, I'm getting the not registered error quite a bit. I prefer using 2g while on the go for bbm, whatsapp, Facebook, etc and 3g only when I'm browsing (to save on battery). Does this method solve the not registered problem as well, or is it just to rectify the 2g/3g issue?

Additionally, I hear mention from a couple of persons that they ended up taking their phones to repair shops and had them do it. Is it that special hardware has to be used along with the spt software; or can I just connect up to my laptop with the software and do it myself?
