Motorola Backflip :: Calls Going Straight To Voice Mail And Home Button Not Working?
May 28, 2011
I couple of days ago it shut itself off again. I took out the battery to reset it, but when it came back on the home button quit working, on both the front screen and the keyboard. Also, all of my calls are going straight to voicemail and the Happenings widget isn't working right. When there are no current happenings it says "keep up to date with friends in social networks". If you touch it, it says to setup a Motoblur account to use this service, but I already have one. I've tried just resetting the password on there, but that did nothing. And if I try to set it up, it comes up with a force close screen.
On my old Galaxy S3 you could send a call straight to voice mail by pressing the down volume button. Does the G3 have a similar feature? I get 3 or 4 calls a day that I don't recognize and instead of just ignoring them, if I could send them to voice mail to see if they are legit enough to leave a message. I have Mr. Number because I do get other spam calls and I also get those unblockable numbers like 0000000 or 43 or something like that.
Suddenly from the past two days the lock button is not working and am not able to lock/unlock phone each time it automatically locks and for unlocking i need to open up the keyboard and so tat i m able to unlock. button is not working suddenly.
my 3gs iphone took 'the plunge' out of my pocket and into my toilet the other day. i was not happy. i immediately put the phone in some rice in a ziplock bag and waited. and prayed.today i took the phone out of its grain cocoon and was thrilled to see that it still worked. only problem? the home button is completely unresponsive. obviously i think this is a hardware issue, but what's really strange is that every time i restart the iphone (a few times), upon power up my phone goes immediately into voice control as if i pressed and held the home button. figuring there still may need some drying, i put the phone back in the rice for another 12 hours. questions:
1. does this whole voice control aspect put a software spin on this problem?
2. after i give the phone some more time with the rice should i do an update/restore?
3. should the genius bar be my next stop?
4. are there any other solutions out there besides this one: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=615755
so over the weekend, while I was away from home, the home button on my iPhone 4 stopped working. It happened suddenly, and the only preceding events I can think of were that (1) we had heavy rain but I kept the phone in my pocket and neither my pocket nor the phone were wet when I took it out after the rain had passed (2) I downloaded the F1 timing app which initially had some crashing issues. I'm not sure if either of these contributed but it's possible.While the home button wouldn't work at all when pressed, I found that the voice control was starting automatically (and calling my contacts without me knowing). This would suggest a long press of the home button I think however I couldn't replicate it with the button. To avoid calling more contacts from my pocket I turned the phone off but it turned itself straight back on and always went straight to voice control after starting up. I finally got around this by leaving the phone on flight mode while not in use. I also found the accessibility setting to have an on-screen home button which made the phone slightly usable but not ideal.
When I charged the phone that evening it came up with the recovery screen requesting that I plug into iTunes. As I was away and without my laptop I was not able to do this but got through the weekend by cancelling lots of voice control pop ups and a lot of flight mode use. Now I'm home I have connected to iTunes and a restore was required. I followed this right through, the restore completes and when it reconnects to iTunes it says it needs to restore again. At this stage I can unplug it, turn it off and on again and use it.If it's turned on while unplugged it will start ok and then can be connected to iTunes and synced but the voice control will still start automatically after turning on and the home button does not work at all.If it's turned on while plugged in it will be in recovery mode and request a restore again.
I have had my phone for over two weeks. I've begun to notice that the phone doesn't ring when I get a phone call. Sometimes a particular call won't even register as missed; other times the call just goes to Voicemail
Many of the reviews and first looks say that the BackFlip has "Voice Memo/Dialing".I've found the voice dialing, but no voice memo.There are Voice Memo apps on the market, but did one really come with the BackFlip or not?
Home button does not bring me back to home screen... Double tap does not bring me to the intended screen... when at the desktop, if at any other desktopn than the center desktop, pressing home button does not bring me to the center desktop... Long tap/hold on home button, or search does nothing...
I was in a meeting this am waiting for an important business call. The phone was sitting on the table. I got a text telling me people were trying to contact me and I didn't answer the phone! It didn't ring. I've had it set for CDME/LTE because I live/work in a saturated 4G area. For some reason the phone read 3G with 4bars lit.No call. After multiple text messages the call came through. I've had people complain before that they've called when I've had the phone sitting next to me at work and it hasn't rung, and at other times it rings just fine.
Question concerning: MOTOROLA BACKFLIPwith MOTOBLUR recently installed the latest Androidand MOTOBLUR software to Android 2.1 with enhanced MOTOBLUR. Now I am unable to answer or make calls. Phone rings, but only a black screen appears. Attempting to make a call - same thing. I go to contacts/select the contact/hit call and the black screen immediately appears. I've turned the phone off/on.
I have a Droid Turbo. Sometime today the little microphone button on my home page has stopped working when pressed. It only happens on my homepages on the phone, so if I tap on Google and bring up the browser page or then I can tap on the microphone and talk.
If I'm on the Home Screen; however, I can press it again and again and it is totally unresponsive. I have tried:
-turning the phone off and on again, - going onto home-screen settings and turning google search on and off - downloaded a anti-virus program suggested by a friend with the same phone and done searches.
This may seem like a rather small issue, but I use that microphone button a lot when using my phone.
During an exam, I can get in trouble if my phone goes off, even if it just vibrates.I've noticed that even when I have my phone in silent mode, it still vibrates when I receive a text message. How do I turn this off? I do not use the phone for anything other than calling and texting; I have no apps or email accounts or google or anything else set up with the phone. I wouldn't even know how to use them, to be honest. I just want silent mode to mean everything is completely silent, no vibrating or anything.
Blackberry Bold 9700 on contract with Virgin, I have now unlocked the phone and put my works Sim (o2) in. When I switch the phone on I recieve 1 possibly 2 calls then all further calls go to voicemail, I dont get any notifications that I have voicemail and don't know unless I call 1 or 901. If I turn the phone off and on again It then repeats the process. It appears to forward all calls to voicemail after a couple of hours. Call Forwarding is set to Conditional and does not change. I have reset to factory settings but it still does it.
My buttons seemed to have stopped working properly. In order to adjust the volume using the side button, I have to shut down the phone and then restart it. It will work for a while and then stops working and I have to go thru the process again. The home button just works whenever it wants. It doesn't fix the problem when I restart the phone. I can slide my finger in a circle around the button and it still doesn't work.
My phone came up with a message asking if i wanted to update to the new software so clicked ok, it seemed to be taking ages and then suddenly went off. Now when holding down the power button and the home button it is still not working and wont restore?
have had my iphone for almost 1 and a half years, and about 8 months ago my home button started wrecking; i would press it and it would either not open the iphone (take it off sleep mode to show lock screen) or the button would get stuck in and would start the voice control.. then about one week ago my vibrate button wasnt vibrating, even when i got a call or message or alarm... around one year ago, my camera started wrecking; like i would go into it and it would be blurry, and over the past year it has been getting worse and worse, and now i cant use my back camera at all.
Just bought a BB - I have tried 3 times now to retreive calls in my mail box - each time they ask me my password + reask to accept my name & message - then line goes numb with a buzz sound every second?
Why does voice control keep opening up without pressing the home button? This happens when i'm listening to music or watching netflix. The songs will also skip and begin to fast forward without any buttons being pressed. I've done a restore on my iphone but this has not resolved the issue.
I have a lumia 900. Is there a way to send certain calls right to voicemail? I use my cell phone for my business and I get telemarketing calls on occasion (Business phones are exempt from DNC). It's nice to send future calls right to voicemail. My android phone used to have this feature and I have tried with Nokia to no avail.
