No mobile/SIM card option and GPS not working after update to 4.0.3 (need help)

2012-08-26, 0:09 AM

Hello

I have problem regarding mobile options on my recently updated tablet, on original 3.x android i had option to use my mobile SIM card and was working fine, untl i update it on 4.0.3 version. Now i cant use sim card and there is no any option in settings regarding usage.

How can i fix this annoying thing because i cant go anywhere without Wi-Fi coverage or can i reverse to older vorking version of Android ?

 

i rechecked all options available, there is no any thing that relates with mobile data, in settings or notification bar, nowhere

 

I cruised a littlebit through tablet and with File Manager HD, in System\app folder i found "Phone.apk" and "TelephonyProvider.apk" so i assume that Mobile Data exist, but...i cant reinstall it delete it or run it and nowhere in any options except Apps list as "Mobile Data" and "Mobile Network Configuration".

Programs are running ¸i guess, but there arent avalible in any way nowhere, anywhere.

 

Also , i cant find any GPS sattelite, anywhere, from any location, my phones get them but not Tablet

Plese, someone who can give me right information what to is most welcome.


Thank You

Have you performed a reset/restore on the TPT. That may be part of the problem. But first you may want to back everything up on your PC.

If I was you, I would back up everything and send it in for repair....

I reset it several times to restore it, no luck, tried many things in knowledge base, nothing, zilch....problem started at first time update to ICS, all worked perfect on HC.

So i quit  and send it to repair today, so i guess i wont update to ICS anymore since there is no fix to it unless som miracle appears :)

Thank You all
