    Default No phone or data service unless in AT&T hotspot

    Weird issue, I get no phone or data service unless I am in an AT&T hotspot. Anybody know what the issue could be?

    Samsung Galaxy S2 i777
    I've had the phone about 2 years and have had no problems until last week when I changed out the micro usb port.
    Any thoughts are welcome, particularly related to how access within a hotspot is different than outside of one.

    Thanks!

    When you're not connected to an AT&T hotspot, what does the network status show as? You can check in Settings (should be along the lines of Settings > About > Status), look for 'Network', 'Signal strength', 'Mobile network type', 'Service state', and 'Mobile network state'.

    It's possible something got knocked around while replacing the microUSB port, and as a result the phone isn't able to connect to any mobile networks. I'd try removing, checking, and re-inserting the SIM card while the phone is off if you haven't already.

    Hi Patrick,
    Thanks for you reply and good question -- I'll check on those details next time at at a Hotspot and report back.

    I've tried removing/replacing SIM card to no effect.
