Default No bars

I re activated my phone from being in test mode and now have no bars. Thats even after activation at metro store. I know its not in test mode but is there a way to get my bars back. I would love to have my esteem back....

Now that you have been reset can i ask what did metro do to reset the problem and you may need to goto the dialer and hit this *#*#4636#*#* go to phone information scroll down to bottom check to see if radio is off or on
