    Hi All:

    I bought a thunderbolt from internet last week. After i got the phone i use my sim card (support wcdma and evdo) provided by "Asia Pacific Broadband Wireless" in Taiwan, but it could get any signal even cell signal. I have freshed android from 2.2 to 2.3.4 include attached radio rom, but it still fail.Would anyone kindly help me to solve this problem? I have seen other person have the same phone with the same card as mime, and it worked perfect. So would anyone give me a favor? Thanks...

    I am surprised that this worked for anyone! As far as I know, this phone is CDMA (for EVDO) and the sim is LTE, not GSM/WCDMA so using another sim won't work. But maybe someone knows more

    Would not think it would work Thunderbolt SIM has nothing to do with CDMA or EV-DO. The sim only affects LTE and eHRPD which are both for data.
