Iphone 4 unable to detect Rogers cellular network.

Hello

 

I am a newbie to iphone, have been android user for 3 years or so.

 

However,  recently I bought an used 32gb iphone 4(Rogers) from eBay at less than half the price of the new 16gb iphone 4.

 

Anyway, the problem I am facing is that iphone does not detect any Rogers cellular network.

 

It requires Rogers sim card to activate the phone.

 

Hence, I know the carrier is Rogers.

 

Since the seller mentioned it might not get any cellular reception, I assumed there might be a hardware failure either on sim reader

or antenna, but the phone imported contacts from my sim card and detects cellular signals from other mobile companies (Bell and Telus)

except Rogers.

 

I don't have other companies' sim cards so I can't verify activities of cellular receptions.

 

 

Does anyone have same or similar problem that he/she has experienced?

 

 

Here is a little spec of the iphone.

 

 

Model: Iphone 4

 

OS: 6.0.1

 

Baseband: 04.12.02

 

Storage: 32GB

 

Jailbroken: yes (tethered but only 6.0.1 SHSH)

 

Hardware failures: so far, nothing is wrong.

 

Sim card: Reissued last year around July. 

 

Data Plan: Yes 

 

Rogers exp: around 6 years

 

 

thank you in advance,

Hello Yoh-P

Seeing as the seller DID say " might not get any cellular reception" It could be that the sim card reader is either damaged OR the phone was tampered with & the Antenna or sim card reader is done.

Every phone will show Bell, Telus, Virgin, Fido & other carriers. That is just there for you to press & connect to their networks. If you want. try speaking to a Apple rep & see what they can do. Maybe they can see what the problem is without charging you the cost.

You can also take the phone to a cellphone shop & tell them what is going on. They can test it with other sim cards & let you know.

Also, have you tried restoring the phone? It may be happening because of the Jailbreak. Try everything & see what happens
