    For those of you familiar with this problem, it's when your Moment's signal bars displays an "x" but is stuck in AIRPLANE MODE. When you hold down the END button to pull up the 3 item menu you see this (note that it says AIRPLANE MODE IS ON):

    Silent Mode
    (Sound is ON)

    Airplane Mode
    (Airplane Mode is ON)

    Power Off

    So I battery pulled the phone...didn't work. I then did the VOLUME UP/CALL/END button hold down trick to bring up the root menu and did the Master Reset (which took my phone back to stock + wiped out all of my apps and data so BACKUP YOUR PHONE FIRST):

    Firmware: 2.1-update1
    Baseband Version: S:M900.8.OS.DI06
    Kernel Version: 2.6.29
    Build Number: ECLAIR.DJ07

    ...didn't work

    I then went into the root menu again and did the REBOOT, still nothing

    I then proceeded to get mad and hit the phone a few times and BANG, the signal came back and has been back since (2 days running).

    Is there something in the hardware configuration I can change to fix this lock-up issue? If I open up the phone, is there something I can do to fix this? Please someone help...obviously my solution won't last as a fix

    I've never had a reboot not fix the issue when I had it.

    If hitting the phone fixed it you have a short or loose connection in your phone. Take it back and swap it out for another one.
