Many people come to the wiki when something doesn't work. I've been
trying to figure out the best way to help them, and I've come up with
this idea. Please tell me what you think:
1. Have a "known issues" section prominently displayed on the main page,
perhaps near the top.
2. Each known issue should include the symptoms and a diagnostic (so
that a user can determine whether the problem they are experiencing is
in fact this known issue). Diagnostics might be sparse when an issue
first becomes known, and will become clearer as we learn about the issue.
3. Each known issue will also (hopefully :-) feature a solution section,
although initially it might be empty.
4. After a known issue is solved, and the patches are present in daily
builds, and enough time has elapsed to prove it is really solved the
issue must be removed from the "known issues" section so that the wiki
This also raises the question of historical items. Once things are over
and done, removing from the wiki would avoid confusion. On the other
hand, history is good. Not sure how best to handle this, but it's lower
priority I think.

Subject: Re: Sim card is not working, how do I run diagnostics?
And I am stuck
I have 3 brand new sim cards.
None of which work in my FreeRunner. What does the reading of the SIM?
How do I look at that for bugs, and perhaps a bug fix. What is needed on
the SIM, is it just the S/N? Can I reprogram a S/N for an unactivated card
to one of my old working chips? Then call AT&T and get it activated?
