Motorola Defy :: Change Of SIM Card - Radio Unable To Connect To Network
Jul 13, 2011
I've gone home and wanted to change my SIM card to the home one. Now MotoBlur wants me to put in the password and stuff. Did that and it says: "The phone radio is unable to connect to the network. Make sure the radio is on, or move into a better cover area". Same story when I put my UK (the orginal) SIM card in. Tried to connect to wifi, that won;t work either.
Last week i had my Defy running UK T-Mobile Froyo suddenly stop being able to use Facebook or Twitter, despite other applications (HotUkDeals, Browser, Tesco ) all being able to connect to the net - it happened at the same time.I have since cleared the cache on both, uninstalled, re-installed, and all i keep getting when trying to login to FB is: "An error occurred during sign in" and on Twitter: "An error occured when signing in. Please try again later".
Is there a setting buried somewhere that might be causing this? Is it something like an SSL Cert becoming expired? Really annoyed by it as it means no FB messaging during the day.
I've bought my 'Defy, motoblur - MB525' on 'T-mobile - UK. It doesn't seems to be connecting to 3G. I've gone thru different checks on the phone with t-mobile support, even sent my phone for 3 weeks but still the same problem. They'v ask me to sent it back. Mobile network is set on auto, but i m unable to view any videos or download a simple pdf, it takes very long to connect to some sites. There is always a 'G' on top of the screen.
Settings/Date & time/Automatic doesnt work on my Defy+. Have tried re-booting after selecting automatic, but still no difference.Because of travel, I have tried this in multiple countries using multiple SIMs/providers and none work.
Myspace account stopped sync and updating in the happenings. so like twitter, I deleted my account and re-added, but now I cant re-add my space account at all! It keeps giving me the message "Your entry is invalid, please try again."I keep trying it everyday but no use. It also disappeared from the status bar (where i post my happening status to social networks). Why can't I re-add my myspace account? it worked before resetting the phone. everything works fine and all other social networks like twitter, orkut and facebook work fine ,but not mypace. I tried logging in to myspace from a PC and my login worked fine. I even created a new motoblur account but no use.
Usually I arrive somewhere, pop in a prepaid sim and hit the ground running.,, On many different networks. US, NZ, AU, no problem. In Bangkok I blamed the dodgy Thai sim card and language barrier, but same problem in Cambodia on different network. Meanwhile, my friend's phone is getting 3g just fine in both countries. I think I need to change some code or something in the phone settingsThe Cambodian woman who sold me this sim tried typing "qb" where a network code would go, and of course it gave her an error over and over. I'm sure my sim is designed for 3g and that there's coverage.
My Defy has suddenly stopped charging, neither does it notice when its connected to the PC.
However, when I power off the phone and then plug in the cable it notices, a little white light comes on and the phone powers up. So the USB port must work, at least a little bit.I also have a Desire and the same cables work with it, so I know that the PC and cables are working. There is defifinely something the matter with the Defy.
I got a new sd card for my phone for Christmas. I'm wondering if there are any tips or tricks for installing it. It's a 32gb card. Do I need to prep the card, or transfer files to it on my PC before inserting it in the phone? Do I need to format it?
Upgraded the update and the home screen and the icons in the bottom for Menu, Dialler, Contacts did not change. why is that so? when I saw the Android Users guide on Google for 2.2 it has changed from eclair,
How to change it to Froyo from the screen itself they are saying that you are running Eclair Not froyo. After upgrading to Froyo the battery is not so good. How to calibrate the battery
Is there any way for this (or) i have to do a discharge and charge the battery a couple of times. Now also My battery goes from 20% to 70% when i switch on the phone.
Everytime I try to setup a connection to our Exchange 2007 server on corporate synce on my Defy+ I get the message "Could not connect to the server"I have sucessfully set it up on a Defy and other Android phone's, is there something different about the Defy+?
I have connected the phone with Wifi, the system shows it is connected, the wifi bars show strength as very high. Yet unable to connect tointernet/email/facebook/apps shops etc through the wifi.I have checke dthe mac addresses - they are the same. no restictions from the router side. I am at a loss.
So I love my Defy (still running 2.1) and have had no problems since I got it in January. I took some amazing pictures of the sunset last night and my camera and gallery both worked fine. I went to show them off this morning and all of my pictures and videos are gone! There are some random pictures of what look like arrows from internet pages, but nothing I had every seen before. I went to the TMO store and they put my sd card in another phone but they still weren't there. I am phone-stupid when it comes to this kind of stuff, but I know for a fact I did not delete them or do anything that could have deleted them. What's weird is everything else on my sd card like music and files are still there, and my homescreen still has my picture that was in the gallery Asoftech Photo Recovery, but as a single mom nursing student, $30 is hard to come by at the moment. I would use a free program but I don't know which ones are safe.
i did format my card 1-2 times...but after formate only 3-4 days it will fine but after that i m also faced same problem.. my camera click images not showing in gallery...even after some days when i was on my cell.. i got a msg in notifivation that ur sd card damaged u hve to formate...then i had go to my p.c nd connected my cell phone to p.c then i mount my sd card to my pc..nd go to that drive -> properties->tools->scan my sd card for error..my p.c search error nd make my card to use again....but after 2-3 days same problem was occur again..images gone , sd card damaged nd all....why this is happend.. i have 8gb sd card class 10 , transcend..
