Hello folks, I don't know who to turn to, you guys really are my last hope! I am grateful for any feedback and as a courtesy I will keep things clear and concise.
1. Bought new LG Optimus 2X (white edition) from eBay, locked to a Spanish network
2. Unlocked phone to accept a UK T-Mobile SIM card using code purchased from internet
3. Phoned worked OK, except for Google Navigation (GN). Using GPS Test app, I could 'see' 5 - 8 satellites and eventually it did lock to 2 - 4 of those, but immediately thereafter when I launched GN, the phone did nothing and just sat there thinking and 'searching'...
4. To fix the above, I did a hard factory reset. This made things worse as now I don't even have an internet connection. Whether it is Google Play or a browser, it simply says "no connection"
My WIRELESS & NETWORKS
settings look like this:
Data enabled - checked
Data roaming - unchecked
Network mode - GSM / WCDMA (auto mode)
Network operators --> Search networks --> do I ask it to select a network automatically or shall I select T-Mobile UMTS
or T-Mobile GSM
Any idea what else could be wrong / I am missing? Internet, Google Play and Gmail did work, they no longer do after I hard reset. I am sure I have an incorrect configuration, maybe the phone by default is trying to get to the net via the Spanish carrier it was originally locked to?
