    Question Can't make or receive calls/text messages?

    I was on stock .340, did the OTA update. Couple weeks later I wanted to start fresh so I flashed the maderstokc .340 zip to get back on clean .340.

    Ever since I've been on maderstokc I've been getting connection problems. I was talking on the phone and all of a sudden my call was dropped. I couldn't make out going calls, it would just sit there and hang. The 3G went away and 1x appear for a while. I could go on the internet and stuff but couldn't receive texts or make phone calls. I did a restore yesterday back to the maderstokc restore I made. Things still didn't work then all of a sudden my 3G came back and I was able to make calls?

    Is something wrong with my phone, is maderstokc messing my phone up? This also has happened when I first got my DX and rooted my phone. There's something going on but I cant point to whats wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks- BUD

    Its not maderstcok, its a form of Sbf it restores back to stock. I think its something with verizons towers or something,, 2 days ago me and alot of people were having 3g problems. I never had call problems though

    wierd. last night i couldnt make any phone calls it would dial but i couldnt hear anything and it didnt say connected, it would just hang at the screen. this morning it did the same thing until i did a restore. im back on maderstokc but an earlier version. about 30 minutes after i restored it my 3g came back and i was able to make calls, etc.

    right now for some reason my gmail and email on my DX isn't working. i can receive gmail and email messages but i can not send them? i dont know whats going on.

    is there a different way to get back to a clean stock over .340 besides flash maderstokc?

    Verizon is doing a lot of work as of late, with the 4G and all, so I don't believe it's your phone. However, you could try reactivating the phone with *228 and option 1 to see if that helps..

    If, after that, you still want to SBF, here is where the files are: There is a link to the install guide there as well. You can ignore the section in the guide on what files to download (since you'll already have them).

    All SBF Files

    First, I would ask around with Verizon users in Pitt to see if it is because of work on towers (are they having issues also). I rarely have times where my phone shows 3g but then I try to use the internet and it says nothing is found. I hit my wifi, let it fire up, then shut it off and that usually works.
