    Thanks for the reply I thought pcc might have been causing the issue as it comes on when i plug the phone into the laptop but says no phone connected so i uninstalled it although this did not solve anything, i have an sdcard muliti mount app on the phone would this be interfering with the connection ?

    Also, when you enter flash mode you should not need to "turn the phone on" - just hold the back key and insert cable.
    Make sure Pcc/SEUS are not running when you try.
    Hope this helps!

    Have you tried restarting computer?

    This happened to me last night, a simple restart solved it

    As i was discussing on XDA last night, alot of people try the less obvious things before trying the obvious lol

    For instance, I lost my network signal yesterday and I kept flashing different ROMs to see if it would make a difference. Hours later, someone asked me if i'd removed the sim and re-inserted it :D It's funny how I didn't think of the obvious within hours of continuous flashing :D lol

    what`s your info on baseband?

    Well I updated to 435 then had the problem shortly after.

    But the problem lies with the external antenna connector. I stuck a piece of wire in it to boost my signal (and it worked) but I damaged the connector, so now it keeps trying to get a signal through the external antenna connector

    Then one more question...
    Did you upgrade all FW or just the baseband?
    I'm asking you this because i had q very similar prob.
    I was trying to upgrade only my baseband. Result? Never but ever got any GSM service. I became desperate :)
    then...light just bit me...flash all FW and Viola...everything fine.
    try it. Look my signature. There you can download 435 firmware I've made.
    if still doesn't work tell me. I made a restore of 24 baseband FW but only when I'm at home i can upload that. 11/2 hour.
