    Hi there

    First experience of flashing a ROM. Always a bit concerned about doing it because of the possible issues but the terrible lag on my Galaxy S GT-i9000 eventually prompted me.

    Downloaded and installed Darky's v7.0 JPY Gingerbread edition and WOW - Now I have a lightening fast phone.

    The only problem is I can't use it as a phone or to text! Although I can access wifi easily for some reason it won't connect to my carrier (Telecom New Zealand)... and even though I did a backup of the earlier system using ROM Manager, for some reason that won't restore (Get's hung up on boot screen). So I', back to Darky's but with no connection.

    Details:
    Model number: GT-I9000
    Firmware Version: 2.2.1
    Baseband version: I9000XXJPY
    Kernel version: 2.6.32.9 root@sep-60 #1

    Phone shows an IMEI number and has IMEI SV as 01
    Mobile network type : GPRS
    Phone Number: Unknown
    Network: Unknown

    I have tried to set up using Mobile Network Settings but a search of networks doesn't even show TelecomNZ (even tho at boot it shows up with (No service) TelecomNZ in status and then reverts to "emergency calls only")

    Any help would be very much appreciated.
    Thank you

    Not sure if this is works in New Zealand but try *228 and reset roaming.


    I spent a week in Auckland many years ago. A very beautiful country.
