I've had my verizon xoom for a few years now. bought it off ebay...it was sold as parts. They guy said it wouldnt power on. Turns out his charger was bad. Fired right up. Anyways. I used to get 3G signal ALL the time on it with no issues. No sim card, never activated on any service (im sure he deactivated it on his....in fact when i called verizon a few weeks ago making sure it wasnt blacklisted they showed it as still be activated on his account). But about 6 months ago the 3g signal disappeared never to be seen again. I rarely use it, but i do tinker around with it...running different ROMs and such. Tried many different ROMs to see if that would fix it...with no luck. I'm now running Omni Rom 4.4.2 Big File partition ROM. runs great. but i just wish I could get that 3G signal back.It was very handy when the power went out and no wifi.
I've gone into settings and poked around with no luck. even going to "powering on BP" mode (power button, hold volume up..then hold volume down) and it boots up and gives me the Moto app "Field Utils" Program menu I get "process com.android.phone has stopped" So does the Field Test Screen. I know its not a phone. but according to a few websites i've come across its possible to get into that menu on the tablet and enter 000000000 for the number.
anyone got any suggestions? or ideas on why it just suddenly cut out?

Did you update to stock JB build at any point? If so, that's your problem. I've posted a thread with a fix here in the Q&A section.
