From what I know I would assume that the power amplifier of the UMTS
modem is broken. This may happen if there is no antenna or a short
circuit on the antenna output. The module may try to emit up to 2 watts
and if it can't radiate that it can burn the power amplifier. Although there
should be thermal protection.
