Hi all

I write to tell you a problem my friend have with our Acer liquid metal.

His phone doesn't recognized any sim card ! The problem appeared sometimes with stock rom but now i flashed for him the performance rom the problem seems to be permanent and we can't find a solution... i tried to mount several sim card on his phone but the phone tells there's no sim and only emergency calls are possible. I tried to re-flash the rom but nothing changed! So i think is an hardware problem! Is there something i could do before send it to Acer?

Hi,

I have a similar problem.

I changed my provider, so I got a new sim card.

The sim card work fine on a htc tattoo (older phone) but no on my acer liquid metal.

The phone was blocked on SFR network (but now I believe it's unlocked with the latest update), but that not the problem since my sim card is SFR too! (french network).

I tried another SFR sim, and same problem, it don't work on the acer liquid metal.

I tried two custom rom, lewa os (september version witch was working perfectly with my old sim) and the latest lewa os (february version) and I got a "no service" when I power the phone, and I don't get prompted to enter the sim code...

I tried another custom rom (holo-cm7) but same problem.

So I decided to flash the stock rom, and with the stock rom it work!

But I want a custom rom, so I tried to flash again a custom rom with full wipe, it doesn't work.

Then I flashed a custom without any wipe, with the hope that my sim card will be seen, but no luck again.

I tried that with the 3 custom rom I mentionned above (so it took my all the afternoon for nothing xD).

After I tried *#*#4636#*#* and changed all the network settings that I can (cdma, gsm, gsm prl, gsm cdma prl auto, and I don't remember the others lol).

But I never get promped to enter the sim code.

I'm really desespered, so I hope someone will know what this problem is related to, because now I became crazy!

Thanks for the help, and sorry for this long message, but I wanted to explain all the problem.
