I had a Droid X on PagePlus for a number of years and it was great, then started getting unbearably slow, so I "upgraded" to a DX2 I got on eBay. The phone is okay, but since then my 3G has never worked, and I can't figure out why. When I first boot the phone up, it comes on (grey) for 30 seconds or less, then disappears and I can't make it come back. It never turns blue (neither do the bars, usually). I've been using WiFi, which is fine if an AP is nearby that I can use (never when I need it). Texting and calls seem to work fine.
I've tried a factory reset, ESN reset, toggles, airplane mode...it never comes on. GMail etc. just sit there trying to update forever (or until turned off). I don't know what else to try other than another DX2. Any ideas?
If I do get another one, how should I activate it? Previously I just did it online via Kitty, I think, ESN change, then *228 I think it was and that's all I did. Is there a better way? Maybe that is what broke my 3G?
