Hi, just bought a wildfire for my girlfriend only she's on t-mobile and the phone (2nd hand) is on 3 :S I've done the whole gold card thing but I'm having a bit of difficulty with the 'patch MMC' button. It keeps telling me 'an error occurred Object reference not set to an instance of an object' another user has said to change to disk drive connection but so far I've had no luck (I've tried on both my xp and windows 7 computers)
Cheers

Default Virgin Mobile USA

Hi,

I had my Virgin Mobile USA CDMA HTC Wildfire rooted when I was visiting family in Taiwan. But after I got back to the US, I have not been able to connect to 3G network with the rooted phone for some reason so it is pretty useless at the moment. Is there a way to just set up the 3G network without unrooting the phone?

If unrooting the phone is the only option, which stock rom would work for me?

Android version 2.3.5
ROM version 1.06.1401.4
Software number 1.06.1401.4-Snow
Kernel version 2.6.35.10-g60b2609-g6a378cf-dirtyjikantaru@micra-TM #5 Mon Nov 21 23:19:14 PHT 2011
Baseband version 0.94.00.0824
Build number 1.06.1401.4 CL 99423 release-keys
Browser version AndroidWebKit/533.1

Thanks!

Thanks for providing your Wildfire's details but i dont think it would be necessary

When problems occur that relate to the inability to connect to 3G/2G networks, the problem is usually down to the loss or wrong configuration of your APN (Access Point Name), all network providers will have different ones, and depending on your region (in the UK or US) it will also be different.

Follow these steps:
Menu>Settings>Wireless & Networks>Mobile Networks>Access Point Names
When you tap Access Point Names you may or may not see Virgin US either way reset or add Virgin's APN

Sorry but i cant find any APN for VirginMobile US, i spend a good 30 mins but no luck sorry, i will definitely post if i find anything that could be of help

Thank you for your response!

I have tried days to find the APN settings for Virgin Mobile USA without any luck, which makes me wonder if I should unroot the phone. Besides, according to the explanation of Access Point Name on wikipedia "On a technical level it is a configurable network identifier used by a mobile device when connecting to a GSM carrier", I am thinking if the reason why we couldn't find any information for Virgin Mobile USA's APN settings is because its system is CDMA.

Urgh! Pretty frustrating...

Ah sorry about that dude

Maybe you could do a nandroid backup
Then flash a sense ROM such as Wildpuzzle/RemPuzzle
Find where your APN settings are, then copy it.
Then do a system wipe subsequently reflash your backup
