N900 All telephony functions, including emergency calls, are disabled due to communication error. To recover, you might have to reboot the device

For the last two months I have been contemplating what to do with my N900 that started showing the error below:-

All telephony functions, including emergency calls, are disabled due to communication error. To recover, you might have to reboot the device.

When looking for a fix, placing a piece of paper above the simcard was my first option, but it didn’t work.

After giving up the one the phone, I was ready to try the risky approach of adding pressure to the GSM module as explained . Follow the instructions in the previous link and also make use of N900 Disassembly instructions.

To add pressure to the GSM modules, I also made of springs found in pens. Cut a total of four rings from the spring. Dip them in glue and place them on top of the modules as shown here.

My N900 is back to working again. Many thanks to ForeverYoung
