    Hi all,

    I just recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy GT-17500L (its a Bell Canada phone). After purchasing the phone (which was originally unlocked) I bought a Solo mobile sim-card, which was needed in order to use the phone on my Solo monthly plan.

    Everything was working fine until I decided to try and update the firmware from 1.5 to 1.6; unfortunately, like a few others from Canada, I didn't properly read the guide and after the upgrade, the phone was "re-locked" and wasn't accepting my sim-card. After going through the guide posted on Pg.4 here (http://androidforums.com/samsung-i7...users-galaxy-7500l-notice-l-6.html#post600640), with the help of Rasta-Man FB posts and others, I was able to get my phone back to the original firmware, but now I'm having reception issues.

    The phone will at times pick up the Solo Netowork (I'm still using the original solo sim card), but then drop it after 10 minutes and just say there is no service. When I search for networks, it recognizes the Solo one (I'm guessing b/c of the S.C) but it isn't able to connect.

    Hopefully this is clear!
    I would really appreciate any help you guys can offer!

    Welcome to the forums!

    I'd like you to go into the settings and give us the information listed in the "About Phone" section (firmware, baseband, build, etc) so we can help. ;)

    Thanks!

    Will do when I get my phone back. I found somebody who might be able to solve the situation; really hoping he can fix it (just spent $175 on the phone a few days ago, really regret modifying it), otherwise I will get back to you tomorrow!

    You really should give it another go. You fell into the one pitfall, everything else is more easily reversible. This is a great phone loaded with galaxo 1.6.3.3 ROM.
