Unhappy [Q] A500s Returned from Service Center with Network Problem

Hi Friends,

My friend's A500s had some power on/off issue. So he gave the phone to Xolo Service center. After 25 days, it has come back with the problem fixed. But both the SIMs' Network are gone. Everything else works fine. It seems the Service center flashed his phone with Baseband Version Modem_XOLO_A500s_S014_13092013

The Phone Recognizes the SIM cards without any issue. But no signal. It searches for Signal constantly with "Magnifying Glass" like tiny icon over the Signal Indicator. And a tiny X mark for rest of the time.

Bluetooth works
Wifi Works
FM Radio Works
Everything else Works

He doesn't want to give again to XOLO service center as he needs the phone for next week. He can't wait for another 25 days.
I installed CWM and Flashed with a Custom ROM but the Signal issue persists.

I would like to know what I should do to get the signal back...
1. Change the baseband or Downgrade it to 08082013?
2. Any other Custom ROM?
3. Any setting tweaks to be done?

or Any Hardware issue that we can't do/ Resubmit the phone to the same Xolo service center?

Right now, My friend can't afford another phone.

Kindly help me guys with your precious experiences and knowledge.

Thanks, NightWalker..

In the meanwhile, I rooted another fine working A500s and took a backup using CWM. I restored the problematic A500s (Using CWM) with Good A500s' Backup file. Baseband reverted to old 08082013 S011. But the problem persists.
Just now noticed, Front Camera quality sucks to the core.. worst.. before giving for service it was decent to make a video call..

I finally try once with your Stock ROM... If it doesn't work, I have to ask my friend to return the device to the same service center.

Thanks once again for the Help

I am new to this Forum though I have been following it for a long time.. Just now I learnt to thank properly.. I mean just now noticed "Thank" button..

I checked the link you provided.. The links are dead.. S007 is very old.. the phone had come with S011.. Service center updated it to S014..
I went through the links.. hmmm.. Not working.. I already know how to root and flash.. all I need is a ROM or Baseband file to rectify the Network issue.. I tried everything I could..

Any of A500s users faced similar problem?
Now I started Hating Xolo Service Centers.. Could it be faulty radio receiver???

Nope,It's the best one.S007 is the most stable.
