Return it to where you bought it and tell them it's a demo unit and not a real device.

Was it working when you bought it?
How does one know it's a demo?
I agree with Kenmar, bring it back to the store to see what's up?

Your friend needs to return it from where he bought it.

It's either stolen or he bought it used (from someone who stole it). That's the only way I can think of that it would be displaying the live demo unit screen.

Alex,

I think your friend's best bet would be to return it back to the seller and have them explain why it's not getting a network signal and replace the device if they can't get it working.

If it wasn't getting a network signal when the device was originally purchased, then you're not likely to get it working again without the carrier's assistance (unless there was something done that could account for the loss of the network signal since the purchase--in which case you'd need to tell us what that was).

Best of luck!

Either way, "test" or demo device, we can't help. That phone is not for public use and your only solution is to return it to where it was legitimately bought so they can replace with a real, working unit.

As it's not the standard software, any rooting or flashing guides have the potential to brick the device, rendering it useless.

Your only way forward is to take it back to where it was purchased.
