Samsung :: R800 - Is Hard Reset Button Hidden On Delve?
Aug 12, 2009
Is there a hard reset button hidden on the delve? I have read that there is supposed to be a button under the battery cover, but this phone does not have one that I can find. The phone has lost its calibration for the virtual keypads, calibration works everywhere else fine but the dialer and keyboards are way off.
Looking to see if any one has managed to get Bitpim to work with the R800 Delve yet? I've tried, but can't seem to get it to connect either by USB or BT. I know that it's not a supported phone at this time, but I thought I'd still get it to connect as a Generic phone.
The reason I'm trying to do this is to have access to delete the ringtones and pictures that are included with the phone. There's quite a few, and althought they don't take up much space, they're annoying to deal with. Any ideas on connecting it to Bitpim, or another way to delete this stuff would be greatly appreciated.
I have bought cdma phones on ebay before and never had a problem finding the Alltel monster packs for them, but the latest phone I bought, the samsung delve r800 I have had no luck. I have spent days looking for the file. Does anyone have the file or a link?
I got this phone turn on thru page plus and it is an altel phone but it want let me send or rec pic text can someone help me to get this phone right my friend has an verizon phone on same network and can send an rec pic text is it lock some way or what.
Simply download JavaInstall.rar, extract it, and then extract and install the driver with your phone unplugged. Plug in the phone once the driver is installed, and let windows install the phone. Then, open the network settings area and create a new connection. Choose connect to the internet and dialup connection, and then the manual setup option. The user and pass can be empty, but you can use "firstname.lastname@example.org" and pass "alltel" and the phone number should be *99# for 1x mode or #777 for broadband mode.
On the Delve, when you get a call the ringer starts out real soft then gradually increases in volume. Does anyone know how to make the ringer come on full volume from the start like most phones? I can hear it at full volume but by the time it gets there the call is going to voicemail.
Has anyone else had just an absolutely horrible experience with their delve? I can't believe what a piece of junk this phone is. I've had 3 so far. First 2 the touch screen just completely died, and now the left half of my new one is dying. All in the space of about 4 months. I don't understand why they keep dying, I am not hard on my phones, I'm a little crazy about keeping my electronics looking pristine, and pretty much freak if I get a scratch or scuff on anything with a screen haha. Previous two were returned under warranty and replaced as defective. Now this one is going to have to be as well. It has not, since I bought it, connected to the computer, with or without a card in it, typing lags horribly(10+ seconds per letter most times, with nothing saved on the phone, straight out of the box) the browser is much slower than my old BB pearl, and my battery life is horrendous.
I've been the proud owner of a Samsung Delve for about a 10 days now and there's a few issues I'm worried about. I want to make sure that it's not common to all Delve owners before I go and give Alltel crap about it and possibly exchange the phone.
-The phone freezes for a few seconds when doing simple tasks such as writing a text message in 'landscape' mode, or while browsing MP3's on the SDCard. -The USB adapter will malfunction on occasion forcing me to 'plug and unplug' the USB adapter until the phone recognizes it and enters "PC Mode." So I can start transfering my files.
-The 'slider' icon used to read a text message when the phones in 'lock' mode. (Where it reads the text senders name, and has "Read" and "View Later") Often will freeze and linger on that screen after I engage the "Read" option. I'm thinking it could be a problem with the processor or memory that makes it freeze? Keep in mind I don't run ANY programs when it friezes, neither do I have any widgets on screen.

I just did a hard reset because my pearl was deleting all logs & nothing else was working. When I reinstalled everything the SMS button was gone. I hard reset again to make sure it wasn't an error and the SMS button is still gone.
Is there a way to reset your IE without a hard reset? Somehow, I have lost the browser button functionality (no backbutton or favorites). Not only do they not work, the bar at the bottom is completely blank.A hard reset would take me about 5 or 6 hours of re-moding (is that even a word, lol).
Can not do a Hard Reset. 1. I just tried to Soft Reset my omnia I900 after I removed a program. 2. The phone started up with the Samsung Omnia screen then played the tune and went to the SAMSUNG screen. 3. Then I only get a Trackpad arrow and nothing else except some pixel dots. I even removed the battery, SD card and SIM card after each Soft/hard Reset separately.I tried to do a hard reset using these instructions:How to perform a Hard Reset using the hard keys:if you encounter some problems & after several attempts still no improvement, try the Hard Reset to return to factory settings. Back up your stuff first before the Hard Reset if you choose to reformat your Storage*** 1.Press soft reset hole beside the power button. 2.Press Call and Cancel Button together when you see the Samsung Omnia on the screen. 3.Reset Screen appear with "Are you sure you want to format? Format or Cancel".This hard reset does not erase the 8/16GB memory. To reset everything, use the software hard reset > Settings/System/Hard Reset.There is also option to format the storage card.I assume the Call button is the Talk/speaker phone key on the bottom left and the Cancel button is the End/Device lock key on the bottom right.if that is correct, nothing happens such as the Reset Screen appearing with 'Are you sure you want to format?'
I'm trying to perform a hard reset on my BJ. I searched and came up with pressing up on the D-pad while powering on. Is this correct? I've done that and it's just sitting there on the Windows Mobile start-up screen, it's been at least 10 minutes?
Alright well i just got straight talk, bought the service three days ago. Everything was going fine i was making calls, using the internet, and sending a **** load of text messages. well today i came home to find that i wasn't receiving any calls. so i came home and started to make a phone call. the phone displays calling..... i cant hear any ringing the screen disappears. it doesnít say anything. it doesnít say call failed, nothing. so i try agian. and now i get call failed. i have full bars. ok so i try txt messaging, txt failed to send. ok now i go driving thinking maybe its the cell phone tower near my place same thing. i have full bars but cant make any calls i ask my friend to call my phone. nothing it doesnít ring. so by this time i call customer service. i spend 45 mins to do the basic b.s. they have to do by reading off a piece of paper. Pull out your battery let the phone sit for 1min and then put the battery back in (start the phone still cant call) do a phone reset even asked the guy to reactivate my account. Nothing he keeps asking me to call the activation line *22890 well it doesnít work because the phone isnít ringing. so I tell the guy it not ringing still and i guess he gave up because he hung up on me. I call back get a different guy. Told the guy i just went thru everything and nothing worked. He tells me to return the phone and get another one. well Wal-Mart doesnít even have this phone in stock i check the three that are around me. i ask can you send me anther phone because i think this is bs that i have to return the phone and call you when iam at Wal-Mart to transfer everything over. i ask the guy for a complete full refund including the 45 dollar unlimited card that is not refundable. he then goes on to tell me wait one sec while i write you a ticket for level two support so they can hard reset your phone. he then tells me its going to take 48 hours to hard reset my phone. He gives me a ticket number and says call back in 48 hours. So anyways
Basically does anyone know how to hard reset this phone? i think it bs just to get me off the line how is he going to reset a phone that canít even make a connection to the tower. I donít have the usb cable is there a key combination I can type or press to get this thing to hard reset. I did go thru the hidden menus that are posted and did not see anything.
i607 Blackjack on AT&T network. I have unlocked the phone and installed and uninstalled many apps. I have also altered the menu structure to get rid of all of the annoying 'pay-to-use' AT&T links. I want to return to the way the phone was when I got it, unlock it, and install only the apps I really use. Will a hard reset (do not really remember how to do it), take me back to the beginning? Will anything? If not, how would you go about really cleaning up the system. everything works perfectly, it is just a clean up effort.
Anyone know how to do a hard reset of the BlackjackII?I installed some software to allow me to receive Chinese characters in my SMS and now the phone locks up when it boots (won't accept any user input). I can still connect to it through active sync though.Any help would be VERY much appreciated. I'm in a foreign country and totally screwed without my mobile.
I am not very well versed in computerspeak , and have never had to back up anything on my phone. I am having no luck in diagnosing a problem with my bluetooth(won't turn on) , Samsung has suggested doing a Hard re set ,in hopes of fixing the problem. I would like to back up ALL of my data , contacts , apps , texts , etc. , but have no idea on how to go about it. I did a search here and became even more confused ! Will I be backing up to a pc , if so will I need a physical connection , will I backup with KIEs , and again , how is this done , and what , if any apps should I get to make my life easier , by the way after this , I want to update the OS as I am using gingerbread.
I had to hard reset my blackjack because it was locked up and there was no other option. Once the reset finished I restarted the phone and now I have no phone service. The homescreen says 'phone off'. I went into settings, phone, and my number is not even listed. It's not reading the sim card any longer. I put the sim card into my old RAZR thinking maybe I damaged it, but it works fine in my RAZR. Is there something I have to reset on my blackjack to get my phone service back and for it to start reading the sim card again since I did a hard reset?
