Help Needed!
My 8250 keeps having this problem where it can't seem to locate the network. It first happened a few weeks ago when my battery ran out and when I charged it in and it started, it keeps displaying "searching for network" for hours on end. I tried to do a battery pull and still it doesn't help. Then just as suddenly as it started, it got OK again.

This has happened about 3 times already and it's getting to be quite a hassle because the last this happened, I tried to wipe my device and it got nuked!

So any help or any insight into this?

Any help is very much appreciated!

Wipe with Jl_cmdr (see the FAQ) and reinstall the OS.

Okay thanks! I have Jl_cdmr and I'm going to wipe it but is this a normal problem?

I'm asking because it would really be a hassle if I am going to have to wipe and reinstall the OS every time this happens again.

Re: Help Needed!
Depends on what actually caused it and why you "nuked" it. Generally battery pull fixes most problems.

Hi, it could also be a bad Sim card, assuming your Carrier uses a Sim card.
