sim card - Can I install a custom rom with SIM Lock enabled?
Thursday 11th of October 2012
I purchased a phone for development purposes knowing that it was being sold for parts/repair. The phone can't read SIM cards for some reason and the battery always says 999%. No idea why, but everything else is fully functional.When I go to Location & Security > SIM Card Lock its enabled. I cant unlock it because I dont know the PIN.If I were to root the phone and install CM7 -- would the phone ask me to input this PIN after I install it?

Verizon S3, No SIM card/No mobile network
Thursday 19th of July 2012
So my our 1st S3 has had this issue when we try to send a text or make a phone call, the the cell service drops out, and then we get an error pop up on the screen that says "NO MOBILE NETWORK", and an icon appears in the notification bar "No SIM CARD INSERTED".We went through 3 different SIMs with Verizon, and the problem still continued. We even had a VZW engineer call us and run multiple test on the phone. They placed a trace on the line and watch as it happen. They said that the pone was disconnecting from the cell tower as soon as the call connects. They sent us a replacement phone.So we received the replacement on the 17th, and had no issues until today the 19th. All of a sudden, the same issue begins today.We called VZW again and spoke to tech support. This time around, after 5 different techs last week, this guy new exactly the issue before I had even finished explaining it.He says that it is a known issue and that it is plaguing many S3's, but not all. He alone has had 50 calls on this since the phone was released. And that his boss and his best friend hav

ICCID # Gone After Flashing Custom Rom
Monday 19th of August 2013
I am in no way new to rooting, Roms or recoveries, but I did notice something that I have no idea about and decided to see if someone here could help me out. I have a sprint S3 and I rooted it, flashed TWRP-2.6.0 and Eclipse 4.2.2 and after booting up I noticed that my ICCID was coming up as "UNKOWN" and my signal becomes extremely unstable, but when I flash back to stock rooted MD4 everything just fine. I have tried googling the issue and have found mixed opinions and answers on the subject.So my question is, is the ICCID # being unkown really the issue to the problem? And if so how can I restore my ICCID on a Custom Rom?Current Setup is:Sprint S3Eclipse 4.2.2LeanKernel 7.2-exp2+MD4 Firmware

Suddenly no SIM card / No network since yesterday
Sunday 06th of October 2013
Since yesterday my girlfriends Samsung Galaxy S3 started showing a forbidden sign on the place in the notification bar which normally shows the network bars. When I try to make a phone call it says "Mobile network not available" and when I go to Settings > More > Mobile networks, it says "Insert SIM card to access network services". I think this started with that *(#&$(*@# Gmail update which first put her phone in a reboot loop and later on made it so slow you had to litterally wait 5 to 10 seconds after every touch input. But she disabled and enabled a couple of services, after deleting all Gmail updates and the phone was back to normal. But now she can't make any phone calls............ What I did to try to fix this: Reboot the phoneTurning off the phone and removing the batteryPutting the SIM in another phone: the SIM worksPutting another SIM in the S3: still no networkCleaning the SIM with a clothPutting a piece of paper between the SIM and the slot to make sure the pins are connectedWiping cacheDisabling and enabling system servicesChecking if serv
