Samsung Galaxy S - No 3G - Mobile Network State: Disconnected.

 

As the title pretty much explains I have no 3G for some unknown reason.

 

I realise others have had this problem and I have tried many different things to get it working.

 

None work.

In no particular order.

I have tried;

Factory Reset, Turn Airplane Mode on and off to refresh stack, Delete all APN's and run the Andriod APN App (multiple times in different configs), Input the APN manually, Restarted phone, Removed all apps, Flashed Mem card, Packet Data is on, Tried both Network Modes.

 

Things I havn't Tried:

Swapping out the Sim for another 3G sim to test handset or Tested my Sim out in another Handset as I dont have another handset to try it with.

 

I get no 3G icon at any time. WiFi works great. 

It must have started between my last gooybag ending and now, I have not added another goodybag till a week or so ago with about a 2 month break as I didnt need it. So i have just been using WiFi. now I get my latest goodybag (which woks totally fine apart form the 3G, I can call and recieve calls/text and recieve texts) And my 3g fails me... which I really needed as I was going away...

 

Any help would be GREAT as im going out of my mind trying to fix this...

good call endorphin, but sadly didnt work. It auto switched me to O2 mumbling about my sim not being able to connect to this network...(T-mobile and also tried Three.)

I just cant figure it out...
