    Default So... why would my phone be stuck in roaming?

    I thought I'd try out liquid smooth, a 4.2.1 rom, up from a stock, rooted 4.1.1. Great ROM, overall, but I didn't think much of the Bluetooth sound for music: scratchy, jerky.

    So, I thought I'd give CM 10.1 a shot. So, I downloaded CM 10.1 from the daily, made sure I had the Rom Manager recovery downloaded and it indicated it was installed.

    But when I went into recovery, TWRP was the recovery that came up.

    So, I tried to install CM10.1 with that. Probably not the greatest move, but it did seem to work... except for one thing: it showed I was roaming. I'm not. Never have with this phone. At some point in all of this, I got the dreaded "you've got unauthorized software on your phone warning..." I tried to get out of that screen, and wound up popping out the battery... and so on.

    I thought it would be a setting or a problem that someone else had already fixed. so, I thought I'd better bail on that altogether, so I thought I'd try flashing (odin) the same stock rom I'd used to get 4.1.1 in the first place. The roaming warning came up and now, no matter what I do, it stays stuck on roaming.

    Any suggestions? I've spent a few hours trying to solve this (6, so far) and searched all over... so any help would be appreciated.

    Had this exact problem. Googled forever. Restore stock via Odin. Boot in roaming.

    Dial *2767*3855#

    It'll reboot a few times a reprovision phone
