Has any one ever seen this?
My friend gave me a Blackberry 8830 that he got used from a friend of his with an Error 507. The unit was missing a few screws, and looked as if it had been taken apart.
I wiped it, reloaded the OS, removed the IT policy, and everything booted up, and the thing runs great! One problem...
I can't connect to my carrier. The signal strength meter shows a "x" as if there is no signal. It is a Bell 8830, and my personal Bell 8703 next to it has full strength, so I know that there is an available signal.
Could it possibly a unplugged antenna? Another hardware issue? Any suggestions?
