Samsung :: Locked Keypad Still Dials Emergency Calls Numbers
Aug 15, 2006
OK So we all know if you dail 911 u get the emergency number-DUH!, if you dial 911 when the phone is locked, it will ask to call SOS yes or no - Thats understandable. But why if you dial 08 you get the same SOS?? with the phone locked or unlocked. These are T-Mobile Samsung phones too.
It seems as if I press the screen, it touches some of the keys at the qwerty keyboard. This wakes the phone from key lock and starts the emergency call screen.This is becoming quite a problem as I can't have the phone in my pocket for more then a few minutes before I hear the dialing sound (the sound when pressing a 0-9 key)I'm hoping there's a way to turn off this function (emergency dialing), especially when keys are locked.Does anyone have the same issue? Perhaps some update or android programming can help me?
Whenever I carried my iPhone in a pant pocket it would inadvertently activate voice control and take any further noise or touch as a command to dial the most recently dialed number. I know that this normally happens when the home button is pressed for a few seconds.Â
Yet, after I had disabled Siri, set the screen to lock, plus I had the code protection in place, Siri would still start up and dial phone numbers.Â
The only solution, that I have found in this forum, is to enable Siri, enable code protection and then disable Siri in the code protection menu.Â This is not acceptable.Â
My stepson lost his phone so I turned off service and reported it lost. In the meantime I got a new SIM issued and put it in my old Blackberry for him to use. 4 days later he found the phone. I took it into AT&T to have the SIM changed over and we are unable to get past the screen that says Emergency call only and displays a number pad. The screen saver says in red Iphone is disabled connect to iTunes. I did bring it to my house to try and connect to itunes but when I did that it asks me to put the password of the phone into the phone, which I cannot do as it only will let me make emergency calls...
Just bought an unlocked Samsung U700. Put in my Tmobile SIM. I get full signal but doesn't allow me to place a call. It says emergency calls only. The SIM works with my old Samsung and Motorola phones.
When my phone is locked I find on the bottom of the lock screen the emergency call symbol which, if tapped, brings up the option to then dial 999. Problem is with my fat fingers is that I keep knocking this and so bringing up the option to deal. Luckily I've always noticed and then cancelled so no mishaps yet.
I have a Nokia Lumia 610 and for some odd reason last two weeks it randomly dials numbers either mobile or landline. When its sat on the kitchen table, it just dials it, more oddly it switches to loud speaker and it does it about 10-15 times same number one after anotheritched it off and back on and for a few days its ok and then it does it again. Anyone ever come across this and is it fixable
I have recently purchased a Samsung D900, upgraded from D500, the only problem I have is that I am using O2 and I cannot access the Speed Dial function as the numbers are locked to O2 numbers. O2 say it is the fault of Samsung and Samsung say it only happens on this phone with O2. Neither answer allows me to use the Speed Dial facility. I have asked Samsung to give me a code to clear the Speed Dial pre-set numbers but they refuse. I have searched the net for anyone having the same problem and how they solved it, but to no avail. I like the phone a lot and don't want it spoilt by the two companies in question, can anyone help me, thanks in advance, one way or another.
My M73 ME keypad has apparently locked itself. I have not locked it and the keypad lock indicator is not on, however, the keypad is not responding to any inputs at all. When I plug it into PC Suite the computer does detect the phone at all.
I had received a letter of advice (you can call it a letter of warning) from the local authority on nuisance calls made to the local emergency hotline. There had been a few instances of this issue happening, and I would like to find out if there is a shortcut key. I had the latest happened to me again yesterday and I think the local authority will be writing to me again very soon. I would like to do either of the following:- 1. Change the local emergency number to a invalid entry so that it shows up an error whenever I try to call. 2. Disable the emergency call totally 3. [last resort] get local mobile service provider to bar all emergency calls made from my phone. Am not sure if the local mobile service provider will bar emergency calls...
I had my phone locked, with a password. Then this kid I know walked up and punched some buttons on my phone, shutting it off. He knows just about nothing about BB, just a couple tricks his relative showed him. How do I do this myself, for future reference, and how can I prevent this?
When your BB is locked, you can press the Emergency button and select a number to dial. I was just wondering if there is a way to add another custom number in there? Thought it would be good for people in my company to be able to put a personal emergency contact in there in case they are in an accident, because our company phones lock automatically after a short period.
I received my Blackberry Bold about a week ago and put the SIM-card in and it didnt even prompt me for the PIN-code, just established "emergency call only" connection. I had a new SIM-card sent out to me, same problem. The strange thing is that a friend of mine uses the same carrier (Tele2 Comviq) in Sweden and I can use his (older) SIM-card for both 2G and 3G connection. It does ask for PIN-code on startup.
The support at Tele2 Comviq has no idea what do do. Any suggestions?
When no password has been set, and the Tour is locked, the trackball does nothing except bring up a message about how to unlock the device.When a password has been established (options > password > enabled), moving the track ball brings up a screen which will allow an emergency call to be made. I have found this to be a problem if the Tour is locked and in my pocket. Sometimes the trackball moves and it has placed several emergency calls in error - very embarrassing!
Is there a way to use a password, but have the trackball not allow an emergency call - the same behavior as a locked Tour with no password established?
I recently bought this curve off someone and when i put in my sim card it just states "Sorry, only emergency calls are allowed ". Is there a way to get this off so i can use it? I have tried to format it by entering the wrong password and tried to erase and wipe out everything but still no answer.
My mum just gave me her old iPhone 4 and told me to wipe all the old info etc off it.Â So I did what I thought was factory reset, now it just has a logo of a cable pointing to something that says itunes and has a slider to slide for emergency numbers.Â I don't even have a mobile so don't know about iphones now I think I have seriously messed up her old phone.Â
So I switched to Alltel 2 months ago and bought me and the wife each a Hue II. Phones each dial #777, which is Alltel's data #, every night on their own. Started a thread in the Alltel forum and got nowhere, but did find out I am not alone. Not real worried, but it does bother me that no one can tell me what is going on or how to disable it. Here is a link to the first thread: http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=1571222 Can anyone tell me what this is and how to disable it?
I just got a Nokia Lumia 710 a week and a half back from Wind Mobile, and just yesterday it started saying "No Service - Emergency Calls Only" So I looked through everywhere and tried turning it on and off, removing the sim card, etc, and nothing works.
