Vario III with WM6.1 no longer working on 3G (fix found)

5 posts in this topic

Since the middle of last week, my Vario III (Kaiser) with HTC Windows Mobile 6.1 ROM has stopped being able to use 3G / HSDPA. I've put my SIM back in my older Vario II (with T-mobile UK 6.0 ROM) and it works perfectly as expected.

The Vario III works fine on 2G / GPRS, functioning as expected.

I've just completed a hard reset, and even upgraded the radio to version 1.70, but to no avail. Anyone else had issues, have T (UK) changed something?

I've tried my pre-pay SIM as well (this only gets 384kbps 3G normally) with the same effects. I've also tried disabling HSDPA; to no avail.

Perhaps its really T trying to get rid of me?!

I'm starting to think the 3G radio is broken. Wonder why it starts up, shows the 3G or H symbol on the top line (depending if HSDPA is enabled) and then about 10 seconds later goes to "No service".

:-(

LOL, yeah, that trick don't work no more :-(

Guess I'm looking at buying a new phone. Can't decide if I want to wait for a Touch Pro2, or get a Touch HD unconnected. Suspect I'll be looking at a few months for a Pro2, but then I'm no longer using the phone as much as I was, I could stick with 2G for now.

Flashed back the original WM6.0 ROM, Radio and splash screen (left hard-SPL installed).

Seems to be working again on 3G.

Wonder why.

Anyway, I've got myself a Touch HD instead ;-)
