Samsung Galaxy S II :: Not Making Calls, Texts Or Accessing Data Network

Aug 14, 2011

So basically I went away for 4 weeks, came back, switched on my phone and now BOOM it won't call anyone, it won't use 3G or anything or even make texts.

Here's some useful information:

- I'm picking up signal, and can receive texts etc.

- when I try and call someone, it says 'you cannot make outgoing calls while call barring is on' (even though I've checked in settings and it isn't).

- I'm on o2 in the UK

- I've checked my status, and it says 'Mobile Network State' is 'Disconnected'.

- It's running 2.3.3

- I've got the Network Mode on Auto (as it always was when the phone actually worked), and also I haven't been playing around with the APNs or anything like that.

- I bought the phone legit from Carphone warehouse a few months ago, and it worked mostly fine up until I switched it back on yesterday. I'd had a few problems with non-wifi internet before I left last month, but nothing affecting making calls etc.

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Data Network Mode Will Not Activate?

Jun 20, 2011

I installed the lite'ning rom around 4 days ago but since yesterday I'm unable to activate data network mode? It's ticked under the settings and i've tried turning it on and off but it still doesn't come on. When I hold the power button it will say its activated but if I wait 30 seconds it switches to saying its deactivated? Is this a problem with the rom?

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Data Network Mode Not Working?

Oct 3, 2011

Am I right in thinking that the Data Network Mode access your data plan usage? Ie 500mb?When I activate this, it doesn't seem to allow me to connect to the net?Also is there a widget that allows me toggle this off and on?Doesn't it seem weird that Samsung hasn't give us a indicator like the wifi that this data network mode is ON? I could leave it on running without even knowing? Is there a good app which lets me see how much data I am using?

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Unlocked It Got Stuck On T-mobile EDGE Data Network?

Jan 11, 2012

i have bought this unlocked phone for about 550$, but internet is stuck on edge(not even 2g) which is incredibly slow.Please help me solve this i have searched internet but just a few ppl has the same problem with unlocked samsung galaxy S2 and tmobile.That made me think that there might be a solution like changing the Tmobile sim card(i dont know if there is only one type of sim card), entering an unlock code provided by tmobile, or going to a samsung maintenance service and let them fix it or anyother? I have updated to the new firmware but did no effect.I cant understand how such a big company like samsungs' cutting edge new phone comes out of the factory with unsupporting the USAs one(Tmobile) of the 2(Tmobile,ATT) GSM networks data frequency.

BB (RIM) :: Using WiFi Without Using My Data + Getting Calls / Texts?

Apr 8, 2010

I'm off to the US tomorrow and the 9700 is the first phone i've had with WiFi.I want to connect to hotspots without using my data plan BUT still being able to get calls and texts.I know you have to change your browser to "hotspot browser" under general options, but will this 100% make sure I'm not using my data plan? All the tutorials online seem to suggest I should turn off the "mobile network" just to be sure, but then I cant get calls or texts.Can anyone confirm that using hotspot browser 100% I won't use my data?

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Block All Incoming Voice Calls But Not Block Incoming Texts?

Oct 28, 2012

I have a S2 on UK Vodafone contract even though I am currently living in NZ. My phone is a UK model.UK Vodafone have terminated the Passport service as of 1st November which means I now go on to NZ roaming which at �1.65/NZ$3.30 a minute is somewhat steep - I also pay that amount for the incoming call.I now need to block all incoming calls on my phone so as I am not tempted to answer calls at odd times of the day or night (quite hard when we are 13 hours ahead of UK and totally out of sync with them) and pay extortionate amounts of money BUT I need to leave the phone available to make and receive text messages.It is not as easy as to just get a NZ phone contract as this was my life line with friends and family in UK until my provider pulled the passport service so need to disable the phone I to do this so as I can still send/receive text but NOT receive voice calls on my S2?

Galaxy S6 :: Screeching Noise When Making Calls

Aug 7, 2015

For some reason my phone is now making an incredibly loud screeching noise when I am making a call. Both I and whoever is on the other end hear it. It could be a problem with the mic or earpiece. It is rooted with a custom rom on it.

Galaxy S6 :: Loudspeaker Defaulted When Taking And Making Calls?

May 19, 2015

I brought the Samsung Galaxy S6 in April 2015. From day one it has been defaulting to LOUDSPEAKER every time I either take or make a call! (I have to press the speaker picture twice to make it quiet again and resume my conversation). I have tried the usual "mode" settings and because there isn't a "car mode" setting on S6.. I guess it rules that one out. Don't want to do time-consuming perils of the dreaded "Factory Reset?" I have my phone just the way I want it now.

I contacted Samsung direct but no luck. They had never heard of it before so they just said do a factory reset as a result.

Here are some of the Google apps that I have downloaded to use, I guess my last resort is to delete some of them and re-install, perhaps due to conflicting software?

Handcent, weq4u, tvcatchup, fb,twitter,any video, light manager, say no to 0870, utorrent, ringtone editor pro, ebay,wallpaper aps various, history erazer, tesco groceries, blinkbox music, transits, phases of the moon, call recorder, Alarm clock extreme, dropbox, fb privy chat, nctx, makeup alley, sleep aid and I think that's it!

Apr 7, 2015

Occasionally when I attempt to make a phone call from either a contact, missed call, or the keypad the screen will flash like its attempting to call but it just goes straight back to whatever screen I had up. It doesn't even say call ended or call lost. Sometimes I have to click call 3-4 times before it goes through.I just cleared my cache and will see if it continues?

Galaxy S5 :: Sound Not Working On Making Or Receiving Calls

Jul 20, 2015

I just received a new S5 on a warranty issue from Verizon. Same battery, SIM, and SD card as old phone. When I make or receive a call i have absolutely no sound. If I turn on speakerphone all sound returns. If I turn it off, no sounds and the person on the other end sometimes gets a high-pitched ringing. Could it be a headphone jack issue?

Galaxy S5 :: Contacts Do Not Show Up In Search When Making Calls

Apr 3, 2015

For some reason, when I want to use the search function to make calls, the contact's phone number will not show up. For example, I will type "Colin" and the only thing that comes up in the search is his email address. Otherwise, I have to manually scroll through to find his phone number to make the call. Why the search is not bringing up the phone numbers, but instead other links.

Xperia X10 :: Can't Make Calls/texts Nor Receive Calls/texts

May 24, 2011

when I make a call it immediately says "call ended/closed" and when I enter *110# I get this message: Connections problems or invalid MMI-code.When I restart my phone, maybe repeting that process like 10 times then I can send/recieve calls/texts, but only for a brief moment.Before it wasn't as bad... I always got the Connection problem message after a I've made a phone call. But now it is bugging me 24/7.I have resetted my phone, I've even upgraded it. Still nothing.I have changed network operator. Still nothing.I have inserted my phone card into another phone and with that phone I have no problems.So I suspect it most be my phone's fault. I have a Xperia x10.

Galaxy S5 :: Why Not Receiving Group Texts To Samsung Phone From IPhone

Jan 23, 2015

I switched from an iPhone to the S5 in mid december and have had issues with getting texts. I have read a lot about it, so I shut off iMessage on my mac and even disabled my number with iMessage on Apple's site. However, I am still not receiving some texts from iPhones. If they send a text just to me i get it fine (even though they may have to click send as a text message) but I won't be able to get it in a group text. It is frustrating because I can see some texts but not all of them. This has been happening for over a month now.

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Why Do Sent And Received Picture Texts Show Up As Videos

Oct 14, 2011

When I open sent or received picture texts, they appear with a white circle and black triangle as if it were a 'play' button. If I click on the pictures, they open as if they were a video, 'playing' anywhere from 5 - 10 seconds with a play bar below. There's no problem opening or downloading the photos, but it's weird/annoying that pictures are opening this way.

Nokia :: X6-00 - Stop Recieving And Making Calls - All Calls Get Diverted To Answer Phone

Jul 16, 2010

Never had problems with Nokia in the past, and after happily purchasing a Nokia X6-00 16GB in the month of March of this year, my thoughts on Nokia only reinforced WHY i've always gone with Nokia.

Now, i purchased the phone when i was living in England, i moved back to Cyprus in April shortly after the purchase and got the phone unlocked, put in a Cypriot Sim card with CytaMobile. Everything was just great.

This past month as been slightly less of a joy though, out of no fault of my own, the phone seems to stop recieving and making calls, all calls get diverted to my answer phone, and to solve this problem i have had to turn the phone off, then back on again. Problem solved.

That was until this morning. I can still recieve texts but if someone attempts to call me, they are greeted with a 'beep' and then the phone call ends on their end.

For me i am greeted with deadly silence, then a little notification saying 'No Answer'.

I have restarted the phone;

Restored Factory Settings'

Upgraded to the latest firmware it will let me, being v20;

Still no luck, i am hoping it is not an internal problem with the phone, as in Cyprus as far as 'Offical' nokia care points are non-existant. The SIM card is on a contract, so if my phone had been cut off, so would my messaging and my internet which are all still in-use, and work just fine without problems.

On another note, if you are unable to find a cause for that problem, maybe you can give me a quick reasoning on why the phone shuts itself off when i choose the facebook application on occasions. Again only over the past month has this been happening.
