[Q] restored to stock firmware for verizon 4.1.1 now i cant even detect ota updates
ok. so i wanted to restore my galaxy note 2 to stock to give it to my dad because he works in the US but we live in canada. i used this link
to do it. they only had 4.1.1 so i say "no biggie,ill just use the OTA" everything goes well. but my dad called Verizon so they could transfer his number onto the note 2 without a sim card (because the note was originally for use with Verizon). they said everything went ok. so i reset it to stock. and two things go wrong 1) every time i try to check for an OTA (while connected to wifi) it tells me " go to settings>about phone when service is available to update" and wont let me check for new updates. 2) the service wont show up, it just says no sim card installed. i cant take it to Verizon or Samsung to fix it because it was rooted before. is there any way i can fix this?
extra details: its in canada right now, so it might not be connecting to the network maybe? and do you need to be connected to the network to be able to update (not wifi, but the actual sim network)?
