    I have the Vibrant i9000M on Bell Mobility. I was trying to get Froyo using the regedit method. After changing the tags as the forums discussed, Kies gave me an update. After I completed the update I realized all it did was give me an update to international 2.1

    Now, the Bell apps are gone and all I see at the top is signal bars, it use to tell me if i was on 3G, etc but that doesn't show anymore. I've tried the factory restore but all it does is delete everything with the same international setting.

    Here's the specs I see now:
    Model Number : GT-I9000
    Firmware version : 2.1-update1
    Baseband version : I9000XXJM1
    Kernal Version : 2.6.29 root@SE-S603 #2
    Build Number : ECLAIR.XWJM2

    How do I get the Bell Mobility I9000M stock back?!?!

    Let me know if I left anything out. Thanks in advance!

    **EDIT** My data is not working!

    So I got the JH2 firmware back! But i still have no data.

    in Settings > About phone > Status, under Mobile network state it says Disconnected.

    Is there anyway of restoring the data functionality ? I know it's not the sim card because I tried it on another phone and data was available.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    djquick, I tried a factory format it didn't work.

    I did a little more research and found the problem, here's the solution if anyone finds themselves without data service on their Bell device

    Make sure APN settings (Settings > Wireless and network > Mobile networks > Access Point Names) are as follows:

    Name: Bell Internet
    APN: pda.bell.ca
    Proxy: web.wireless.bell.ca
    Port: 80
    MMSC: http://mms.bell.ca/mms/wapenc
    MMS proxy: web.wireless.bell.ca
    MMS port: 80
    MCC: 302
    MNC: 610
    APN type: Internet + mms
    Authentication Type: none

    Proof that research goes a long way lol... Glad my device is back on track :D

    Seems odd that you would have to manually set that

    I had to do this same thing because i was using this phone under Rogers, which is normal. But having to go through this while using a phone from Bell under Bell's network is strange.
