Could someone help me cos this is weird,
ive been with giffgaff for a while now(great provider by the way, keep up the good work.) and ive never had any problems with the network or the coverage. i have a iphone 4 and used it for the internet when im out and always got good 3g reception.
the other day i got a new samsung galaxy s2 and put in the sim card kickstarted it up and it all worked fine, that was 4 days ago.
today i noticed that i had full bars on my phone for the reception but however hard i tried i could not get any 3g, 2g, or edge coverage. i took the sim card out put it back in my iphone and 3g came up straight away so it cant be my sim card.
thinking there was something wrong with my new galaxy i tried my girlfriends sim card in the phone (WHO IS ON VIRGIN BY THE WAY, i will convert her) and 3g showed up straight away so it cant be my galaxy.
could anyone please help me with this issue as i love giffgaff and i love the 3g when im not at home but i cant understand why its just suddenly stopped working.
just looking through the settings and ive seen this if anyone can tell me what it means,
use packet data is on
data roaming is on
network mode is GSM/WCDMA(auto mode)
Then when i go into the status of my phone it says this.
signal strength---97dBm 8 asu
mobile network type--HSDPA
service state--out of service
mobile network state--connected.
can anyone shed any light.
Try toggling GSM/WCDMA to GSM only and then back again to GSM/WCDMA. Does G burst into life? If it does then this is a known problem with some version of some Samsung Android ROMs. I don't know what the solution is If you find out please let me know...
