    RF Cal Date and IMEI Version Not Active!

    here is my problem:
    one of my friends have a S8500 wave, and the phone has a problem that cannot connect to any network, and has no signal, a stop icon appears after a short search for available networks. all phone functions operate normally but I just cannot make any calls or receive any messages. phone can detect sim and shows the saved contacts in it.
    I don't know why, but somewhere in the net I read a topic in a forum that they told someone that american version of this phone has a problem after flashing to another firmware from another country. I am from Iran and when I got this phone it was not on an american firmware. someone before me changed the firmware to a Persian supported firmware.
    I tried to flash to latest middle east firmware. each time I got no errors and all were successful. I used multiloader V5.62 and 5.64 and 5.67 for flashing.
    I tried JPJKB1 FULL firmware.
    also tried JPKC1 Full firmware then updated to JPKE2 which is the latest for middle east.
    also tried XXKF3 which is for Germany or France I think.
    also tried the american firmware BVJJK1.
    also each time I tried to change CSC, but nothing happened good.
    also each time I flashed a firmware tried to put an american AMSS file with advice of one of Iranian forums which was successful for many but didn't work for me.
    now XXKF3 firmware is installed without any changes to AMSS or CSC.
    but nothing went good. still I have no signal bar but a stop icon instead.
    *#7465625* it shows all unlocked.
    *#4986*2650468# it shows HW version and RF Cal Date are not active.
    *#1111# FTA SW VERSION S8500.10
    *#2222# FTA HW VERSION REV1.3
    tried to put debug level to MED with code *#33284*# and after restart of the phone a blue screen appeared with this details:
    IMEI Version not active
    RF Cal Date not active
    used the master reset code *2767*3855# many times, but nothing went good.
    and someone before me flashed the phone to a Bada 2 firmware then downgraded it to a Bada 1.0.2 firmware, I think the firmware was BVIJJ3 with VIVO logo and many vivo apps and widgets in it.

    can anybody help me with this problem? how can I fix RF Cal Date and IMEI version?

    I think the original firmware was XXJL2, if I reflash the phone with that firmware is there any chance to make it work?!

    I have same values, except for 2nd, this code doesn't work for me (HW ver, RF Cal Date).
    I think when you reflash the phone with XXJL2, it should work normal.
    Please, do a master-reset before and after flashing. This is what I always did and still do, and never had issues :-)
    Good luck!
    Note: and close all Kies related programs, using Windows Task Manager.

    I downloaded XXJL2 firmware from sammobile, a hotfile link, and flashed the phone with it, but still *#4986*2650468# shows HW version and RF Cal Date are not active and still I have no signal but a stop icon instead
