I have an HTC Desire A8181...

Everything was working fine, until one day I turned off my unit then booted it back then it says "limited service"... I tried searching for network operators but the it will tell me "your sim card does not allow a connection to this network"...

here's what i have tried:

-resetting the unit to factory default
-rebooting the unit multiple times
-enabling/disabling airplane mode
-i have also tried downloading Anycut(app) - to view the phone info and to disable/enable radio
-tried changing network mode from WCDMA to GSM only
-turning the phone off and removing the battery for 30 mins.

but none of these worked, my phone is useless for a whole week now.

Have you spoken to your phone company?
The same thing happened to me while visiting the UK a few weeks ago.
I was using an O2 SIM purchased in the UK, and they suspended the account when I visited Paris and used up all my credit on roaming charges.
When I returned to the UK, I got exactly the same messages as you until I phoned O2 and complained.

Re-seat (remove and re-insert) the SIM card?
Try a different SIM card?
And yes, check with O2 that they haven't blocked it.

yup, I have... and I don't think its with the sim card though...
the sim card works when I use it on my Nokia and BB..
I have also tried another sim card from a different network. still gives me the same error message.
this phone is hopeless.  Cry Cry Cry

Tried that multiple times, I also have used a different sim card.
I'm actually in Asia, and this is supposed to be an openline phone.
It was working a week ago, but now its just an MP3 player. If this can't be fixed I don't think I'll still be buying HTC phones in the future.  Cry

Getting rid of that taskkiller wouldn't be a bad idea.  They do more harm than good.

After 2 long weeks, I finally got my phone back from repair. The technician told me that it was a problem with the mainboard and it has to be changed. So if you have tried everything and it still does not work, I suggest you bring it to the nearest HTC service center. They did a great job and I did'nt pay for anything. Sweet!
