Long time crackberry user, never needed to post till now.
Parents are switching from the world of CDMA to GSM, going with Rogers, and i found them a decent deal on 2 phone's a 8800, and 8220 for $120CAD so they don't have to deal with the hassles of contracts up here in canada.
Moving forward to the problem.
the 8800 has the standard broken usb port, which I've already fixed on others, so i wasn't concerned about it. but the problem i am having, is it cant get a service.
without SIM it complains of course, but searches, never goes to SOS with SIM it searches then says No Service.
I've called Rogers and verified the IMEI is not blocked/stolen. my next "normal" course of action would be to update the software, its running 184.108.40.206, unable to do that till a new usb port arrives in my mailbox.
Tried performing a wipe handheld, no success.
Any other ideas of things to test and see?
