"No Service" even without a SIM
I bought a 3Gs on the bay, with water damage (in all probability)
already replaced digitizer, LCD, 6R8 coil for backlight…
still have to fix the signal issue but with the last engagement i get an strange error, which doesnt disappear: i don't get the "No SIM" notification anylonger.it shows "Searching..." or "No Signal" all the time, even if there is a SIM inside. The SIM which i use for testing works fine on my other 3Gs and even if there are signal issues/SIMlock it should be recognized. so this was the case before i did the last fix (6r8 coil).
i'm pretty sure this is an hardware issue. maybe on the SIM tray.
thx in advance
