    I just recently came back from out of town and my phone is staying on extended network. I dialed the *228 but it said it couldn't read me. I'm running a droid1 with sourcery 2.0.

    Menu/Settings/Mobile Network Settings/System Select/Home Only?? Try it and then switch it back to Automatic??

    Worth a try.

    Try to toggle the other settings in that section.

    If that doesn't work, l would reinstall the Rom with no wipes.

    If that doesn't work I would restore one of my recent nandroid backups.

    If that doesn't work, I would reinstall the rom with wipes.

    Good luck.

    Odd question, but did you try the standard computer fix of a reboot? Or going into airplane mode for several minutes?

    Yeah, yeah.. I'm on my phone. So?

    Tried rebooting and reinstalling without wiping. I will try with wiping tomorrow, but so far no luck.

    I tried all of those things and still no luck. I even tried a factory reset on the phone. Still the same problem. Please help!

    It's time to go back to stock. I recommend you look at Teddyearp's writeup: Restoring your phone when all else fails-LAST RESORT AND VERY RARE!!!

    Good luck.

    BTW, spend some time browsing Teddy's site, he has some excellent info there.

    *22899 will force a PRL update, but it might not fix your problem. I'd still try it before wiping everything.
