Samsung :: T401G - How To Get Contact Info For MMS Without Opening It?
Jun 9, 2010
When I get a picture message from someone is there anyway I can see who its from without opening it? I just got this phone 3 days ago and I don't want to waste minutes on pointless picture messages my friends send me.
We enabled the power-on PIN option on the T401G, and created the PIN using the slide-out keyboard. We used letters and numbers in the PIN. But now when we power on the phone, and we're asked to enter the PIN...the slide-out keyboard is not activated. So we cannot enter the PIN, because we have no way to enter letters. The phone is basically unusable now. Things we're tried:
- remove battery & SIM, install battery, power on/off, install SIM. - enter the wrong PIN (which is all we can do) many times (> 10) - NET10's "solution" via e-mail is to hold down the */lock key, which does nothing.
I am using a Samsung T401G (Net10) but I guess this would apply to any Qwerty slider phone. My resolution is 176x220. No matter what I size the wallpaper at, it only works correctly in portrait mode, but when turned to landscape mode, it has gray bars at either side.
I have tried to download games to my Samsung T401g by using the website Umnet and choosing games that are suppose to be meant for my particular phone, but I am unable to open the games once they are on the phone. I would like to know if anyone knows how to do this and would they mind sharing step by step instructions with me. I have been successful in downloading videos, music, ringtones, and wallpaper. I would really like to download a few games.
Somehow some of the contacts on the "Messaging contacts list" have mixed info. For instance the name doesn't match the picture or the name and picture do not match the related cell no. (1) How do I delete the contact entirely? (2) How do I edit the related info? (3) What if for instance my contact changed their cell no. and I need to edit the list or the info on a particular contact?
I was wondering if the X10 can do the same as my last android Hero, which basically link the facebook info contact to my related phone contact, including the picture. I guess this wont need any hardware, but software. Has this improvement being asked or is it planned for future updates?
When I got my 9800 I used DM to do the device switch from my 9000. Now all I have in my Contacts are emails addresses. No phone numbers, none!, some contacts without emails addresses are just missing, and no home addresses. I thought all that info was on my sim card? I did do a back-up, but it says the file is an IPD and it won't open.
Ok so i've just upgraded to the newest firmware my phone offered me (5.1.1) and when i went into my messaging i noticed that my display picture is no longer showing beside my own messages, i've checked everything i can think of and the only thing i can find that may have anything to do with it is that for some reason under the contact "Myself" my partner's hotmail address is listed, i can't edit it or delete it, i can add other fields to the contact but cannot ditch this other email address
I found one issue that seems to be very irritating with my BB which other phones have done fine in the past and I cant figure out how to on my Tour. My brother texted me with a new phone number he is now using so I hit options in the test message and then the only thing is "add to contacts" so I choose that but it is a brand new contact.Why cant I choose to update a contact?
When I first opened up Blackberry Messenger, It asked me to associate a contact with my identity.It was my first night with the touchscreen keyboard and I unwittingly selected the wrong contact from my list.Now when I view my Contact Profile and look up "View My Additional Info" it has the information for the wrong contact. I tried using the "Remove Link WIth Blackberry Contact" from the "View Additional Info" window, but even when I hit "yes" to the warning the wrong information still remains.How do I change the info to the correct contact? or how do I reset the whole thing? or how do I edit the existing information?
I have a few contacts that as long as I have texts from them they show up when I search for their names in the "people" section of the phone app. When I delete their texts and search for them the contact info isn't there. However, if I enter their number instead of their name on the dialer their contact info shows up. I'm so confused as to why this would happen.
S6. When I click on my profile in the contacts app, it only lists my name and nothing else. There's another contact in the list with all of my detailed info, but there's no way for me to merge the two. My N5 would update my personal info based on my Google+ profile, but my S6 apparently isn't doing anything.
I just bought my mom a new E72. One thing that has us stumped is how to insert a phone number from your contacts into the body of an SMS. Pretty much every phone I have ever used has an option to "insert contact" so that you can select a number from your addressbook and insert it into the body of the SMS. I have been unable to find this option in the E72. The only way I have managed to do it is in a very round about manner involving multitasking, going and opening the contact book, then finding the number, copying it, and then pasting it back in the text of the SMS. Is this the only way to do what I want or am I missing something obvious? I can't believe that such a basic functionality would have been left out of a "smart" phone ?
There was this app called Xcontact which was an excellent way to insert any contact info from the address book into emails/sms.. but it doesn't work on my bold 9700 .. can anyone suggest anything similar for it?
I have an Iphone 3G, and this weekend, when I connected to Itunes, it upgraded to the 4.0 software and *SAID* it was backing up all of my information (contacts, calendars, etc). The software upgraded and it all works fine but *ALL* of my information is GONE! nothing is on the SIM card, because I tried putting it into another phone. I back up my entire computer to my Time Machine regularly. I spent 1 hour on the phone with a "Genius" while I wasn't at home who repeatedly nagged me to back up my phone. Tonight I spent 45 mins, most of the time, the "genius" didn't know where my contact data even saves. In the end, tried copying last back up before the upgrade to 4.0 software and restore my Iphone to that backup, but it was a no-go.
My Outlook contact information on the PC ended up corrupted so I created another folder and moved all of the Outlook contact data to that folder (just as a precaution).
I then deleted all of the data in my Outlook contacts.
What I was hoping to do was push the data from the Bold 9650 to Outlook, effectively repopulating my contact list. The data on the phone is good. However, when I connect to the computer and it Desktop Manager attempts to sync the contact, it senses all contacts deleted in Outlook and asks if it can delete all contacts on the phone. I want to have it do the opposite, I want it to take the data from the phone and upload it to Outlook.
I wrote a post here before realizing that the thread trail (Home -> Forum -> Canadian Carrier Discussion -> TELUS Mobility -> CDMA Network and Devices) was pretty narrow, and the thread itself seemed bloated.So I moved it here. I've done a bit of the "intro" stuff: up/down-loaded pictures/ringtones and changed the cover display, so i'm pretty familiar with p2k Commander. But, like some other folks (and as i say in my post) i found either myself incompetent or the software lacking. Regardless, I've experienced some success with this direction so i think i'm gonna take it as far as i can.
I have just bought a new X10 mini pro and want to transfer ALL the contact and calendar info from my olld Sony Ericcson W595 not just th info on the SIM card - have tried syncing - only takes numbers from SIM card.Old network 3 new network Tesco mobile.
I have copied all my contact and calendar details from the old phone onto Sony Ericcson PC companion but when I try and copy the data to the new phone I don't seem to have the same options. My number will tansfer on 04.01.11 and am now concerned that I may lose this info
I am using a Bold 9930 for the past year and I just recently discovered that I can no longer email pictures - my attachments for files and etc work fine. I have tried the battery - emailing from the camera - using small size pictures - checking to see if I have a data plan (YES) - emailing from the media card and the device storage with no luck. I am getting angry at the phone! The pictures can be sent to Twitter/Facebook/and of course texting. Oh I read about deleting service books and then restarting them - not sure what that means but I have a ton of files under the service books.
I'm new at this so I apologize in advance if this has been asked. I'm not even sure where or how to search for the answer.I am a former Blackberry user and, as with my Atrix, my phone can be turned on but is non-accessible without a passcode, finger swipe, etc. However, with my Blackberry, as soon as the phone was turned on, I had my name and work telephone number typed on the wallpaper, asking to be contacted if my telephone was found. I haven't found a way to put the same info on my Atrix. Perhaps creating my own wallpaper?
Does anyone know anything about the Samsung Gem? It's supposed to be an entry-level Android device coming out in early September on VZW--there's been one leak on it, but you'd think something else would have come out by now.
