    Hello, I am a newbies, so sorry if I am posting in the wrong section or if I am doing something wrong.
    Well today I bough the Samsung Galaxy i7500l (bell canada)
    It was android 1.5, so I decided to upgrade to 1.6
    I used ODIN and some file I found here and there, and it seem to have worked.
    However, I can not make call or anything.
    When I turn on the device, I see this message:

    Thanks for the answer,
    I did not find this forum at first so I did not read it, so now I need to reflash to original 7500L files?
    The link does not work, do you know where to get it?

    I think you have to keep it, in fact you are flashing this firmware just to get it back. ;)

    Good luck.

    And not only that, but the phone started to randomly reboot every 7-8 secondes.

    I tryed again, and now it yell at me:

    I did the recovery. Back to 1.5, still having the lock screen.
    baseband: i7500lvijd1
    kernel: 2.6.27 hojoong@sep-13 #1
    build number: 76xxcsdcbalum6375

    About the recovery,
    how do I do it? I was not sure. What I did is:
    volume down+ ok + power
    wait until the download thing show up
    press home (button on top of power?)
    then I rebooted the device.

    to me this looks like your phone is simlocked, did you ever successfully connect to your mobile network with it before the first flash? if it wold be the amss problem from flashing standard i7500 firmware it would just not connect to network, this would be easily reverted by only flashing the amss part of firmware wich takes about 15 sec + shutdown an restart...

    Yes ofc, I have use the cel phone during all the day.
    and my brother got one today too, and it still work fine.
    Can bell have detect this and locked the phone? should I go back to the store?
    it ask me for:
    service provider control key

    that is really strange behaviour, you could just try to make nandroid backup from your brothers phone and push the nandroid folder to your phone and restore it. normally this is not in the interrest of bell, but the provider of the previous owner who bought the phone with a contract for a cheaper price. but if reflashing with original firmware did not work the last option would be to bring it to where you bought it. did the firmware you flashed back contain a csc file? normally this has no effect on the simlock, but i am not absolutely sure, if it does and you flashed 1.6 before flashing galaxo with foreign csc and the last flash had no csc this could be the fault...

    edit: sorry, mixed up threads, forget about galaxo...

    I bough the phone(both, two of em) brand new 2 day ago.
    I will try what you said.
    I don't understand what you mean with the csc file?

    Omg, thanks you all! now it is working again! ( I used your file )
    Now if you allow me to ask a last question, what exactly do I need to flash to have 1.6? ( I ask because I don't want to have the bug again )
  17. xoxid

    xoxid Member

    Nevermind, I got it. Now perfectly running 1.6
    Thanks you very much everyone! If I can do anything for you, let me know!

    You have a Bell SIM?

    i thought bell network was only 3G. Are you connecting on another band? 2G? Take a look at settings phone status and advise what network your connecting with.
  22. xoxid

    xoxid Member

    under phone-status I can see it is:
    mobile network type: umts
    is this what you wanted to know?

    To get your Data connection to work again, you have to go into settings, wireless, mobile settings, APN, and then you have to create a new APN called Bell (by opening the option menu) with these settings as the APN: "pda.bell.ca".

    That should do the trick.

    it is back! 3g work!
    Thanks you!
    just modded my brother phone too(was the same)
    took me 5minutes and no problem! you are really nice at helping new person!

    The proper settings for Bell are
    Name: Bell
    APN: pda.bell.ca
    Username/password left blank
    Proxy: web.wireless.bell.ca
    Port: 80

    Just using pda.bell.ca will give you data. But if you want to use bell self serve (account usage, balance, etc), or other services (Example: Bell TV and/or Radio apk) then you need the proxy.

    I don't have the MMS settings handy (I'm on bell, and don't have MMS included on my plan and I don't use it). But those settings are out there.
