Help please unable to connect to network
I bought a Note ii clone from China http://www.dhgate.com/product/1-1-n7...160552013.html
It states that it has850/2100 WCMA 3G bands, and i am on Virgin mobile in Canada which is a WCDMA network only that uses 850/1900 and LTE thus i figured it would work. I put in the SIM card and the phone right away told me my phone number and that it is a Virgin SIM i was extremely happy. Yet it said no service when i asked for the phone to connect automatically it said can not connect to network now please try later. When i searched manually it cound Virgin 3G and then again when i chose it i got the same message! I have factory reset the phone and have restarted it taking the battery and SIM out. I have downloaded Mobileuncle and it states the phone actually not only has the 850 but also the 1900 WCDMA bands, now i am baffled. Am i doing something wrong? why is it not working? I have it set at auto gsm/wcdma for preferred and nothing. I did try the second SIM slot with a Rogers SIM and it worked for GSM as the second SIM is only GSM, Also in unclemobile under engineer mode>engineer mode (android)> phone information it states the phone is on GSM auto (PRL) and i have changed it to different settings, but they wont stick, every time i change it get out and come back the GSM auto (PRL) comes back, any way to fix this to WCDMA preffered and make it stick? Is this the issue? Since 2 days ago Canada has a new blacklist for stolen phones i checked the list just to make sure, but the IMEI number isn't blacklisted.
I have input all the info. i know and things i tried, if anyone can help with this or have any suggestions i would be grateful!
Thanks in advance/
