    So I tried to find out why, but I haven't found a relevant thread. So my phone (MTK6589), a little old now I know, works fine. I mean it worked until this morning when if I tried to connect it to mobile network it shuts down instantly after connecting.

    Had a custom ROM, so I reinstalled the stock ROM and kernel. It still does the same. It works fine if I go to airplane mode even if I turn the wifi on, but otherwise, when I start the mobile network and it finds a connection, it instantly shuts down.
    Has anyone encountered this? What can cause it? Why only when it finds a network connection. Can it be hardware related?

    I tried with different SIM cards and it does the same. It's very weird because i can search for networks and stuff, but just when I connect, it shutsdown instantly.

    Welcome as a new member.

    I suppose it could be the SIM reader at fault. It may also be a duff app....have you tried Safe Mode? Or it could, as you suggest, be failing hardware. Otherwise, colour me baffled.
    I'll pass this to others for suggestions.

    Could be a hardware issue? BUT as a last resort perhaps it's time for a factory reset?
