I bought X8 a month ago and everything was fine. it's few days that connection to operator is lost. all other functions are working except connection to network. just like it is on flight mode. sim is working in other phones. I'm sure that the there is something wrong with phone. I did factory setting also with no use. can somebody help.
i'm not explore it fully but for me it's quite worthly.. it's a reasonable for smartphone for having it.. but most of it stylish for me..
hey i wanna know how to activate internet on the x8 cause im getting very annoyed cause it aint working
