    Hi, all,
    my Pre+ doesn't seem to like the British Isles; last time I was here, it lost its memory and had to be repaired; this time around, the radio (German GSM, provider O2) stopped working the moment I activated it after leaving Eurotunnel on the British side; originally I wasn't worried because there was a news item about O2 UK being off the air after some major technical problems.

    However, O2 is back, but my Pre+ isn't; I borrowed two unlocked SIMs (Vodafone and t-mobile) which worked in other mobiles - my Pre+ remained without connection.

    WiFi still works, so I thought I'd "survive" till I'll return home.

    However, the next hotel I'll be at doesn't have WiFi (they provide cables for your PCs), so I thought I'd try to get the radio started again; unfortunately, today I did a complete erase - on the half dozen or so occasions I had to do a complete restore of all apps I never was in a place which had WiFi and so it never registered that a "virginal" Pre only gives you access to the radio, not to WiFi.

    Is there any known way to get past this stage when your radio is "dead"?

    If I could use the device as a USB drive, I might - just might - be home free, because I habitually make complete backups of the Pre's memory with a PC program that can even successfully back up an active Windows partition.

    Regards,

    Jochen

    Hi, all,

    sorry to have bothered you; while browsing through this forum, I found a thread nearly identical to this one - somehow the words I had Searched for had not pointed me to it.

    I'll try to follow the Advice given by AwesomePalmPre127.

    Just to double check, doing this you won't be able to activate it with a carrier, (You probably won't though, because your radio's dead) unless you re-doctored your phone. Good luck!

    Thanks a million, you two,

    together your link and advice did the trick - my phone is working again; now I'll just have to find out how to transfer the few most relevant apps back to my device without using that phone - tranferring large amounts of data via GSM while roaming is not my idea of financial fun.


    Regards,
