    Same problem, and the solution below makes no sense. pf? What does that mean? And if resolder means what I think it means (i'm thinking of middle school shop class, which I had poor grades in!), I have no idea how to do that without breaking my phone ... :(

    Please explain.

Just check the pf and antena switch if these are ok then simply do one think just resolder the both and then make a jumper from from pf to antena conctor the problum will b solved but rember before resoldering you have to clean the pcb with acetone

Have you removed the battery more than once?
Try removing the battery and the flash memory card.
Put the flash memory card back in and then the battery.
The problem should be solved.
