    I just got my VM Galaxy S3 recently and have been experimenting a little too hard. In short: everything works fine except for the mobile data connection.

    After an arduous, 16 hrs+ of work and many, many errors, I have ended up with my phone running a stockish ROM (a Punkmaxx one, minus some VM bloatware), rooted, with CWM recovery.

    I can make calls, wifi works great, but I _CANNOT_ get mobile data (3G, 4G, nothin'). I may have accidentally used a Sprint rom in my struggles somewhere, but even after flashing the stockish rom, then doing the stock modem (thanks Punkmaxx again), rewriting APNs to VM ones, etc., there is simply no way to use mobile data.

    Also, when I go
    About device --> Status --> Mobile network state = "Disconnected" permanently (my area normally has excellent signal)

    However, when I go to "Activate Phone," the 3G icon does appear and start chugging - though only upstream I think - so SOMETHING still works.


    Oh yeah, is there a chance I have been doing something wrong? Like not clearing certain caches or wiping stuff appropriately before flashing back one of the stockish ROMs? The ROMs definitely took OK, and the modem successfully flashed, but it seems SOMETHING is still horribly borked with my modem or radio or something... :(

    Could this be fixed with some EFS trickery? Re-flashing a ROM and/or modem with new parameters?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
    (Skill level: baptism by fire - now quite a hand at flashing via CWM recovery, Odin, etc.)
