[Q] my 3G data hosed?
Ok, here we go.
) Running on SC2.8 voodoo, no problems with the ROM so far. However, just since yesterday my 3g data connection has...um...went south.
Being the curious type, I followed GizmoDroid's instructions in one of the other recent threads on how to turn your hidden menu on (*#22745927) and other dial codes (##data# and **debug). Now, also reading his warning about what had happened to him, I changed NOTHING.
However, soon (I think after pressing the Advanced menu button under ##data#), the Phone process forced closed. Ever since that, my 3G connection has come in and out randomly, being gone about half the time. That's not all though: even when the service is present, it's sloooow. I've run tests in the Speedtest app many times; only once have I achieved a ping better than 999 (the highest it'll show), and downstream and upstream data seldom exceed 100 kbps.
Now, I've tried a variety of things: *228 (of course), restoring a nandroid (of EB01 I think), flashing an entirely different ROM, Odin-ing an old package for DL09, and most recently, Odin-ing Adrylnalyne's "whole enchilada" EB01 package, including PIT. None have fixed the problem.
I've read where GizmoDroid activated an old phone then re-activated his Fascinate, and this solved his issue. I can't really do that right now, as I don't have an old smartphone laying around.
Anyone have any suggstions?
