Re: CDMA not working in india

Dear Headhair,

I am struggling to get the CDMA for reliance activated on my LG Fathom.. and I need help from you..

I have the v7 rom in my phone.
1. I got the MEID registered through the 3rd party as suggested in previous threads. (I used to get reliance welcome message much before I opted for this step)
2. I got all the details as committed by 3rd party.
3. I updated the AKEY.
4. I got the GSK also from reliance web world. They have activated the same in their system.
5. Now when I dial *228, it gives me a welcome message from reliance, but I was unable to select the language coz my keypad did not accept any digit to enable me to select a language. ( the welcome message says, to continue in english please press 1, but the phone does not accept 1 despite multiple attempts.)
6. I replaced the lgedialparser.dll in \Windows folder on the phone. Still same situation as in step 5.
7. Use EFS explorer and deleted the eri.bin file, restarted the phone and tried again. Still same situation as in step 5.
8. Deleted eri.bin from \Windows folder, restarted the phone and tried again. Still same situation as in step 5. Note that after restarting the phone, eri.bin file again appears in \Windows folder on the phone
9. Finally I resorted to a factory default. Now the phone gives me a message "Activation not available". Note that even before I opted for registering the MEID with 3rd party, I used to get "welcome to reliance" message. So I assume, Factory reset did not screw up anything.
10. One more thing that I noted in the phone when put to CDMA mode is, earlier in the band tab it used to show me 3 options Home only, Automatic A and Automatic B. But after factory reset I can see only Home Only and Automatic.

Please advice, I am desperate to have CDMA activated, else gonna loose 1000 Rs. (500 for MEID activation and 500 Webstore took from as security deposit +initial balance)
