I never used 3g in my home country.
Somebody told me that I had to change the baseband of the cellphone. I have already rooted it, but I'm still not sure if this is the solution.
I have already tried dialing *#*#4636#*#*, and under Phone information selected the network preferred type to "WCDMA only", and turned off/on radio, but then I get no radio reception at all (no 2g, no 3g, can't even make calls).
What should I do?
My phone data is this:
Model number: GT-S5830M
Baseband version: S5830MWHLB1
Kernel version: 126.96.36.199 (this line is directly under the kernel version: se.infra@SEP-99 #1)
Build number: GINGERBREAD.WHLB1
Any help would be very appreciated.
Make sure your carrier has 3g coverage in your area.. 3g works fine for me here in bangalore with good seed but in my home town i get 3g coverage only when i am outdoor.
