    Hi everyone, bought a lumia 925 on ebay recently, clean IMEI but locked to Three UK which isnt a problem.
    But the real problem is that I get NO SERVICE, not outside, not at home, no where, just no service.
    Microsoft wont take the phone for repair as they wont accept the proof of purchase from ebay (WTF is the difference? i still paid money for it and its clearly not stolen)
    The phone itself finds networks when I search for them manually but whatever I do it doesnt connect to any of the networks.
    YES, I did test the sim cards in other different phones and it definitely works fine and its not cut.

    Is there a solution for this problem?

    Thats kind of a useless answer, djeire84
    Are you always so scolding to people who make suggestions?

    Are you sure the 925 is not SIM locked to Three UK? So what SIM you use?
    Did you contact the seller on Ebay and confronted him with this defect?

    If this is also not the answer you want to hear please register and reply on this post with some more background info.

    There are multiple things you can try:

    1) Hard reset or
    2) Dial ##3282# and check if all are enabled or
    3) Flash a different ROM

    One thing you haven't mentioned about is trying the phone with another SIM?

    Forget it people I have given every suggestion I know plus went to the trouble of googling his issue and found one extra suggestion like turning flight mode off (if it was on previously). He isn't listening and I'm done with his issue, and I don't take to kindly to being spoken to with such disrespect when I'm trying to help.

    He had another post about an hour ago which states that his phone was locked to three "which isn't an issue" quote unquote.

    I know it can be frustrating sometimes.

    @OP: being able to read networks without a SIM is normal since the phone's antennae doesn't need a SIM to detect networks. If your SIM card is not being detected then may be the SIM pins are damaged? (Bent or broken). There is no way to check it unless you pop open the back cover. In fact return the phone back to the seller if you're not comfortable in going through troubleshooting

    I suggested testing with another three uk sim in the offending phone.

    Hi djeire84,

    I could be wrong, but from the avator pic the OP appears young and maybe trolling.
    Just my opinion though.

    Mine started doing this about a month ago. The only way I was able to fix was to perform a factory reset. So far so good

    Don't bother yourself he posted the same issue on the forum today and he launched a full blown attack on me. First he said I was a retard, then suggested based on my gender I haven't a clue what I'm on about and so on so forth. Original forum.
