I installed /e/ a week ago on a second-hand Samsung Galaxy S4 (SGH-i337M) and it runs fine on WiFi but there was a problem with the SIM card reader and I haven’t been able to get the mobile network service running properly. I have just replaced the SIM card reader and put in a SIM card but am still unable to have the device recognized by the network. The unlock code from the original vendor says “Network unlock successful” but the SIM card still does not register on the network. I am able to read the SIM card number with the SIM Card Info app (id=me.harrygonzalez.simcardinfo) and the SIM card works fine in another phone.
I thought that I had successfully unlocked the phone before installing /e/ but perhaps the faulty SIM card reader prevented that from registering properly?
Also, the phone was originally an SGH-i337M, the Canadian variant of the S4 but the /e/ firmware identifies the phone as a GT-i9505. I’m not sure if that is a factor or whether there is some other explanation. I have downloaded a version of the “stock” SGH-i337M firmware and am thinking that I may have to install that to resolve the network issue.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
