You are getting pissed? :-) S_hit happens.:-) Try this. Remove battery while phone is on, take out SIM, then re-assemble and see what happens. If that fails try factory reset.

I'm going to assume your bills are all up to date.

Please try going into Settings > Mobile Networks > Packet Data and ensuring "Use 2G networks only" is unchecked. Koodo does not use 2G networks (Only Rogers/Fido do) so having that enabled turns your phone into an Android touch screen device with no cell radio.

If that's still fine and nothing's working still, do a battery/SIM card pull as Chris suggested and update us on the situation.

I agree with the above..

I have a LG Optimus One and experienced the same problem. I removed the battery and sim card, re-assemble. It helped. If you still have problems try the factory reset.

If none of the above is working you'll need to call customer support, you may need a new sim card or the phone may have malfunctioned.

How long have you had the phone.
