i'm not sure at all what caused this to happen

i never installed any of those "do not install ONLY for testing" apps. and the apps that i did install worked fine as well as EDGE afterwards.

i know it can't be because there's no signal, it immediately says "could not activate egde" whenever i try to go on the browser or refreash installer. unlike when it's trying to look for a signal it will take maybe 10 seconds.

suggestions besides hopefully not restoring my phone?

thanks
