Pressed the airplane mode button once to see if cutting all incoming and outcoming signals frees up the device
Ever since I'm stuck in airplane mode for good.
Booted a number of times, removed battery, tried all kind of things but nothing worked.
(BTW I entered the Settings and the "Call Settings" category is greyed out.
The first tab "Wireless & Networks" shows "Airplane Mode" Greyed so can't do much from there either.
Last tab on "Wireless & Networks" which reads "Mobile Networks" is also greyed out.
When I check the "Status" in the "About Phone" tab I see UNKNOWN for "My Phone Number" - "MIN" - "PRL version" - "ICC ID" - "Network" - "Mobile Network Type")
You are in test mode. Press the # key on the dialer to confirm. If it goes to the hidden menu, you will need to follow this guide.
