    Default Iphone 4 mother board change

    Hi i have had a Iphone 4 on O2 and bought a Iphone 4 on orange today with the thinking that i would be able to change the mother board over and everything would work from O2 after swapping the mother boards over everything is on the new phone and it all works with wifi but i currently dont have any signal, does anyone know what could be causing this issue?

    It's the radio, not the "motherboard." You need to unlock your phone.

    As stated you just need to unlock your phone you could swap the mother board but that's pretty much swapping everything as the phone pretty much is the motherboard
