Samsung :: S2500 / Unable To Get Phonebook / Screen Gone Out
Apr 26, 2010
I have a samsung S2500 and the screen has gone on it and i cant get the phone book up using the software from the samsung site and i didn't have them on my sim is the any way that i can get them back off the phone with out having the screen replaced?
I don't have more than (probably 100) entries in my BB phonebook. When I try to add a number from a received call to the book, the phone freezes and needs to be rebooted. When I try to add a number manually it freezes and needs a reboot.
I just activated a BB storm via BES and the user is facing this current issue. When it uses the phone book to call, it shows the error - we cannot dial this number please try again. This is true for international and local numbers but when dials it manually by dials the number it works without any issues.
I used to have a D600, now i have a sync. i also have that lil memory card that could fit into the d600, plus the software to connect it to the computer.is there any way to bring my phonebook over, or am i out of luck?
i've just purchased a 707sc ii, but cant seem to access the phonebook, after i press it, it just stays on the same page.. anyone know why its happening? manufacture date is 03/07, and its supposedly fully unlocked, as in i can make calls, sms,
I've tried using BitPM and Samsung Studio, but neither will recognize the presence of the U350 phone on my USB cable, though I can access it on COM2 via Hyperterminal.I do have the drivers recommended in other threads, I don't have bluetooth (and I won't be getting it), and I've gone through and cleaned out all the bogus driver entries that these programs create, as well as disabling every other port that could get in the way.And yet, the phone remains unreachable.Suggestions much appreciated.
I have a KRZR, and the inside screen decided to go white the other day....It's unfixable by me and I have a new warranty phone on the way, but I don't think I saved my phonebook contacts to my SIM card. Since the screen is white, I can't see what the menus look like..... Is there anyone with a KRZR who can post a walkthrough so I can save my contacts to the SIM card while I'm blind, so to speak?
I got my Blast in the mail today and when I popped my old sim card in none of my contacts were shown. So I popped it back into my old Razr and saved all the contacts to the sim card again and put it back in the Blast but still nothing. So then I tried just adding them manually and it said "already in use". So, I synced all my contacts on the Blast to my tmobile online. And tried adding my contacts on there but when I checked to see if they updated on my phone the names and everything were there but no numbers. Is there any solution to this or do I have to manually add all my contacts?
my screen broke on my e250, but my phone still works, but cannot seeanything. Iam wanting to copy my phonebook to my sim card, as i want to change phones but my simcard has none of my contacts on it. I was wondering if someone could tell me, step by step what combination of keys i need to copy all my phonebook books contacts to my simcard.
Trying to figure out the brew/address/phbk file. So far I have only made limited progress trying to decode the data in this file, and there's no real information about it on the internet. Does anybody know the format of this file (or has anybody messed around with it. any info helps).
I am from Croatia, I have D900 on prepaid for 6 months now. I had all my contacts saved like local numbers (without Croatian pre-numver +385). Example local number is 098 xxx xxx, but if someone from another countra calls me he has to type +385 98 xxx xxx.
Anyway I went to Germany for a few days and now when I got back, when someone from my phonebook calls me, on my screen there is not my contact's name but a full international number! Example I have my sister Susan in my phonebook 098 111 111 and now (after roaming) she calls me but on my screen it doesn't say Susan but +385 98 111 111.
It would seem that the U600 only allows messages to be sent to numbers which are saved as cell / mobile numbers in the phonebook. This results in two problems: 1) it means only one number per contact can be used to send messages to a contact (ie. there can't be a work cell and another cell for contacts); and 2) it means it's not possible to send text messages (without manually entering the number) to other numbers (the UK currently support SMS to non-mobile numbers).
A couple days ago my brother gave me his D600 it worked fine and all and the next day I looked at the screen and it said limited service. I thought that unusual because I normally get good signal so I turned the phone off and on again and I discovered I needed a pin number and phone lock.
I rang my brother and he said the phone lock was sammyg and the SIM was 9999 - the phone lock worked but no SIM. It then asked for the PUK code. I rang orange and they said without the 4 digit security code my brother was given which he cannot remember I cannot unblock it. I then replace it with a old SIM card which I knew is half broke and does not allow service and i tried to look in my Phone book and even after about 6 hours of it being on it still says phonebook initializing!
I've had this phone for a long time and I decided to try to retrieve my phonebook information from this phone using Pc Studio. However, I need someone to tell me step by step using # pad on how to change my connection from storage to modem because my phone's screen doesn't work. As everyone will know, it gets very annoying to lose all your numbers and have to remember them so I would thank the person who can do this for me if they still have this phone. All I need is guided steps using #s or directions to change from storage and modem.
Does anyone know if it's possible to customize the E840's phonebook number fields, eg have 2 mobile numbers instead of using other or fax fields? Or is it like the U600, where the fields are fixed for mobile/home/fax/etc?
Is there a way to backup the Samsung Eternity phonebook without synching to my mail ( microsoft outlook or outlook express )? since my outlook has emails, no phone numbers. If I sync both my outlook and Eternity then I will have a lot of non-relevant contact info in my Eternity. One way that I am thinking is to make a New User in my computer, setup outlook and use this New User to sync my Eternity Phonebook.
Is it possible for the phonebook to only show the Phone Contacts? I was thinking of copying all my SIM contacts to my phone so I can use video caller ID, but when I did, both my SIM and phone contacts were shown. Is there anyway of making only the phone contacts show? (sounds redundant). I know how to show the phone contacts alone but I want to know how to show the phone contacts permanently. Because every time I click menu, 9, 8, 5 and see the phone contacts and then click end then go to the contacts on the stand by screen, it shows both.
Managed to get GS2 to connect to my home network wirelessly Also managed to connect GS2 to my laptop via USB, eventually But, cannot connect to laptop wirelessly - laptop just doesn't see it on the network?when connected to my home wireless network, does the phone just use that for internet access or do I have to turn something off to avoid using my monthly allowance?
I want to set up my 5800 to work in the car as a music/navigation/handsfree device. I created a Car profile with ring volumes and other stuff set up just the way I want it. However, I cannot make the screen not to timeout and turn off. Basically, the automatic screen lock is deactivated and shouldn't get into way. When I plug the aux cable into the phone I select the Music Stand accessory which is the only one that has a Screen control setting. It is set to On, from the default Automatic. However, the screen goes black anyway, but the buttons stay lit.
I have a iphone 3g and I am having big problems accessing my apps. Everytime I go to use a app e.g facebook or ebay the scrieen goes black and then goes back to the home screen. It also seems to be taking forever to got to make a phone call. What can I do as one of the main reasons for getting this phone was using the apps
Hopefully someone can help me with this problem. I have a Samsung SCH a950 with Verizon serviced. I was discussing the NAM1 and NAM2 function with someone, and looked it up in my settings. I switched to NAM2 to see if there was any pre-programmed info. The phone turned off, then turned back on (reset), went into roaming mode, and displayed a screen that says initial programming needed. When I push OK it prompts to enter unlock code asking for 4 digits, just as it would normally if the phone was locked. Here is the problem, my code doesn't work, I tried the last for digits of the phone number thinking that it had reverted to default, didn't work. I tried 1234, 0000, 5555, etc. and so on. I couldn't find the code. I tried the last four of the ESN, and everything I could think of that the phone might revert to; still locked.
I called Verizon and they were unable to help and referred me to Samsung. Samsung told me it would have to be re-flashed w/ software, and told me that if I didn't want to do that, to contact Verizon tech services because they know the codes but regular customer support doesn't want to bother. I got ahold of tech support finaly after fighting with one Verizon rep who didn't want to transfer me. Tech support didn't have an answer and suggested I take it to a Verizon dealer to be re-flashed. I don't really want to do that because there is only one store in my area that has the software capability and from my experience the employees area incompetent with the exception of siging up people for new contracts. Also, the phone is working fine, my calender alarm went off at the right time, its receiving a signal, keeping time, etc. I'm just wondering if anyone has an idea for a lock code that I've over looked, or a work around to set it back to NAM1, or if there is a program such as BITPIM or something that I can do a work around or reset through my PC
I'm using 5800XM and recently idk why, my home screen become blank.. I'm using shortcut bar theme as my home screen theme but when I tried to add a new shortcut there's "NO editable shortcuts in selected theme" note. and more, I cant use any function such as Open Calendar, Dial (red and green button), and address book from my home screen.
I have had the Omnia from Verizon (I believe that's i910) for a couple of weeks now and I am sorry to say that I hate it. This is the first phone that I ever bought that I just can't get to using. I originally picked it because it was the best multipurpose smart phone that Verizon offered and I heard a lot of dissapointing things about the Blackberry Storm. Also, the battery life was supposed to be amazing and it has wifi which the Storm does not.
However, there are certain things that I just hate about the Omnia and I am hoping that you guys might be able to help me out to solve these issues.
1) The keyboard. I have very small fingers and should have not problem with this. I have tried all of the available text input methods and even tried downloading "Zoomboard" but it still takes forever to create a message. I found myself just pulling out my laptop logging on and replying to an email that way since it is much faster.
2) I hated the lock screen. I found it boring looking and tedious to use. So I installed "S2U2" which got rid of the boring part. But it is still tedious because when I receive a call it creates a delay from when I push the answer button and when the call is actually connected. Plus it always tries to reorient it's self with the accelerometer. Which I hate waiting for.
3) I hate the stylus. There has got to be a way to set up the phone so that I never need the stylus. Some of the included apps from Samsung do make it easier but I still find myself whipping it out to use the VZNavigator, Opera, Skyfire, Calendar, file explorer, and email. Not to mention that the stylus is tethered to the phone, looks stupid, and constantly gets in my way (although, I did just read about a case from Brando that may solve this issue.)
4) I hate closing apps with the "X" It is a pain in the butt to touch without the stylus. I find myself starting outside of the screen with my fingernail and then slowly working it in to hit the "X." Plus when you do this the "X" the app doesn't actually close it just runs in the background consuming memory and battery power.
5) The key pad hides and locks every time you make a call. This makes checking voicemail and using automated menus incredibly annoying.
6) The address book sucks. I hate the one that Sumsung installed because it is not very responsive to my finger and often skips right over the letter I am looking up. The search is a nice feature but it requires me to hit another button, then open the keyboard, and either pull out the stylus to type a the name in the search box in portrait mode, or rotate the phone to landscape, wait for it rotate then type the name in the search box with my fingers. The Windows Mobile one is even worse. I find myself just pulling up the keypad then spelling out the name with the alhpanumeric buttons and hoping that only one or two names come up. If more than two does I then have to close the keypad and ever so carefully select the name with my thumbnail.
7) The touch screen and optical mouse respond to everything. And I mean everything. If when I through it in my pocket after I thought I locked it I can feel the haptic feedback working as things are accidently being selected.
Here's the deal. I know this phone has a lot of great potential and I know some people have found a way to solve most of these issues. I just do not have the time or patience to troubleshoot every single one. Also, I am coming from an iPhone which had none of the above issues and was incredibly intuitive to use. However, it sucked for syncing with exchange, and had no ability to manipulate office documents. I would be still using it if my company didn't for a switch from ATT to Verizon. I love how easily the Omnia syncs with my outlook and exchange accounts, I love the wifi ability, the ability to edit office documents, and the fact that there are a million great apps out there for it. I heard there were ways to basically clone the iPhone onto Win Mo which would be awesome. Is there anyone out there willing to help me! Thank you all for your time. I look forward to your feedback.
So as things are perfect and smiley in the world, the way to make your day complete is to drop your brand new samsung galaxy s2 from a pathetically small height and watch as the whole screen shatters to bits. Enough to put anyone in a great mood.Fixing the screen isn't the problem though. 02 have agreed to fix it for me, for a small fee, but they have confirmed that the whole phone will be flashed before hand. This is not good. I have a lot of memories on the phone that i would like back.I have connected the phone to samsung keis, however, since the screen locked, the dam thing won't let me in to my own data. Understandably this is to ensure absolutle security to your sh** but I can't help wondering why samsung didn't install an option that allows you to unlock the phone from your computer. really need some help figuring out how I can get my sh** back. If anyone knows how to bypass the screen lock or just refresh it. Any advice would be greatly appriciated. I'm not in a great rush since my mum refuses to pay for the fix. and it'll take me a few weeks to save up.i can't unlock the phone because i can't see the screen and i think the touch pad is bust as well.
Right i know you can move the home screens around by pinching but you cant do the same for the app screens, basically when i got my phone everything im downloading and want to use is on the apps screen on page 4, well id like to put everything i use on page 4 onto page one, can i do this?And also how can i put icons that are in the apps screen onto my homescreen?
I just bought a new Xperia X10i the other day because my old nokia crashed and died. I've never had an android phone or iPhone before so I'm having trouble figuring things out. I couldn't export all my contacts onto my sim card from my old phone because it died, so I've been trying to add them manually. My phonebook is filled with all my contacts from facebook, yet I can't see a way to edit those contacts to add a phone number.
