I have been using the voice and messaging features of my Verizon Wireless Prepaid Samsung Intensity (Samsung SCH-U450) on the PagePlus network for quite some time. I have been unable to get the mobile web feature working though. When I try to access the mobile web, it takes me to the page wanting me to pay 1.99 to verizon for one day's usage. This of course doesn't work.
I formatted, then put a couple of songs on it to test it out. The phone recognized and played them, so then I added the rest of my music to the memory card. There's about 14 gb on the card now, so it's almost full. The phone also accurately tells me that there's about 14gb of the memory card that's occupied. BUT The music player now only puts a small portion of all those songs into its playlist, I would say it only plays about 2 gb out of the total 14 gb. I also cannot choose which songs get put on the playlist. I am on Telus, NOT Verizon, by the way. Why can't I access ALL my music in the music player? Is there a maximum to the number of songs in the mp3 playlist that I wasn't aware of? Did I buy the wrong memory card?
Have tried holding various keys in an attempt to access a BIOS screen or some such thing to no avail (why aren't cell phones more like computers?). As for how my phone got to this state...
-I wanted to add custom ring tones to my recently purchased Samsung Intensity but found that texting them to myself via vzwpix.com led to a significant decrease in quality and the costs would quickly add up as I attempted to fix the issue by editing the sound files in Audacity and texting newer versions to my phone
-To get around using vzwpix.com, I found a method of putting the files directly on the phone by installing the phones drivers to my computer using Samsung PC Studio 3 and moving them directly to the phone using Qualcomm Product Support Tools. The method is copy+pasted below for reference
-After a while I got the ring tone to how I wanted it and went to delete the experimentation files on the phone. I had done this in the past through the phone's interface without issue (though an attempted file rename had caused a quick freeze which was solved by removing and replacing the battery), but this time it froze when attempting to delete the final file
-The phone would not respond to any keypad presses including the power button, so I chose to restart the phone by removing and putting back in the battery
-The phone will no longer pass the "Verizon Wireless" screen and reboots after hanging on that screen for ~7 seconds
Pasted below is the complete method I used to transfer the files for reference. Other smarter methods may exist, but given the issue I had with vzwpix.com, my lack of a mircoSD card, and my desire to avoid media messaging charges I elected to go with this method. Credit goes to ch from the Mobiledia forums for figuring this out and typing this up. It works beautifully aside from the issue I have had. I suggest that anyone who chooses to use it remove sound files from the phone only through QPST and not through the phone's interface.
Software required: 1.Samsung PC Studio 2. QPST (Or other software to allow you to browse the phone's file system)
1. Install Samsung PC Studio (Will only be used to install drivers for the intensity) 2. Change USB Port Map to "Modem" on your phone a. Go to Settings & Tools > Phone Info > and then press the # button. b. Enter 000000 for the lock code. c. Select option 2 "Port Map" d. Select option 4 "USB" e. Select option 4 "Modem" 3. Plug phone into usb port. 4. Go to device manager and install drivers for the unidentified devices a. The drivers will be located in C:Program Files SamsungSamsung PC Studio 3 5. Start QPST EFS Explorer 6. Browse to brewmodmr on the phone 7. Delete MrInfo.db 8. Drag and drop your mp3 ringtone files into this directory 9. Restart the phone. 10. A new MrInfo.db file will be created. Copy it to your desktop. 11. Edit the file with notepad. You should see an entry for each sound file in the directory, followed by |0|0 or something like that. For the first file change the second 0 to a 2. For the next file change that same zero to a 3, and so on. I guess the second zero just needs to be a 2, 3, or 4. 12. Copy MrInfo.db back to the phone in same directory. 13. Reboot the phone and your mp3 will show up under the "My Ringtones" menu.
I have a samsung Intensity (sch-u450) which recently entered a never-ending reboot loop. I've tried taking out the battery for a while, then starting it again to no avail. I'm not sure what could have caused this since, as far as I know, nothing changed from the last time the phone restarted. Is there any way I can basically reformat the phone (or fix the restart loop)?
I am using the blackberry service using a GSM service provider, I would like to switch to a new GSM service provider. When I switch the SIM card the handset ask for blackberry ID and password, on entering the details it says invalid Blackberry ID. Can I just use another BB handset and use the new SIM to route all my emails and BB messenger to the new handset.
I have recently moved my services from vodafone to TataDocomo.But when I tried to register my service online on tatadocomo, It was denied.After checking with tadocomo customer care, they said my BBM PIN is blocked by Vodafone.But when I checked with Vodafone they said they don't know about it.
I don't know if this is the right please to post this question. Sorry for the inconvenience.Yesterday my BlackBerry Storm 2 9550 was stolen. I called to my service provider and reported the incident. The IMEI and PIN was linked to my phone line / account. At this time service is suspended.
However, I have a question: Can the BlackBerry be activated with another service provider? Is it useless after i reported? Can I try to contact RIM and lock IMEI and PIN for any kind of future use? I have all that information.
I received my unlock code from from my service provider (Vodafone) for my bb 9780, I entered the code in without switching the wireless connections off by mistake, the code entered correctly and the network was didabled but now I cannot get a service from my provider. the signal bar is 4 bars or higher and it displays whichever sim card provider logo.
Rumors are that OS 6.0 will be available to the 9700. For official OS 6.0 release, is the onus on your service provider to provide this new upgrade? Or will you have to get it through other service providers that are more on top of their game and releases new OS 6.0s first? i.e. is it going to be like upgrading OS 5.0 where if you want the latest version, you'd have to use another service provider's OS version?
i got this curve 9220 couple of days ago now it does not connect to the service provider it keeps searching for network and the antenna signal indicator comes on and off continously hence the moble cannot make or recieve calls
I have an 8520 Curve, OS version V5.0.0681 (platform 126.96.36.199). Is it possible to change the Service provider software, say from O2 UK to Vodafone UK?Its just that I want to give the phone as a gift and it would be great if it was branded with the appropriate software.Obviously unlocking is not a problem.I have downloaded the Vodafone UK software from the BB site, but I just don't know how to do it, or even if its possible.
I have an Xperia X10 with Movistar in Chile, but now I want to use another company, then I use the Movistar instructions with the IMEI in order to unlock my cell phone, but it's not working.I upgraded my cell phone some months ago to version 2.3.3 (gingerbread), then I think that this upgrade is the problem, because I use the code that the web page give me, and the cell phone continues locked to use the other company.
i bought a new unlocked blackberry torch 9800 from ebay yesterday and i inserted my sim card but i could not access the internet. i called my service provider to help me. After all instructions such as going to advanced setting to set up everything, it still did not connect. I put my sim to my former blackberry curve and i could access the internet.
I have BB Torch 9800 provided by DU (service provider in Dubai) and travelled to Canada and took plan from Rogers (service provider in Canada) to use my device there and for getting my mail was getting error message that my device is not registered but took to Roger shop and the guy fixed it immediately and now I am back in Dubai and back to DU and getting same message that my device is not registered though I have manually registered it but no use at all. Checked all possible options and blogs but nothing seems to be working and not able to get my mails on my device.
I am able to connect to the internet with DNA (Finland) at only some spots, but BB messaging, email, google maps, or any other app doesn't work. DNA has never seen a BB and have tried to talk to their Technical support whom say to just activate as follows: GPRS WAP settings clients: ip address: 10.1.1.1 Port: 9201 GPRS connection settings WAP2.0 DNA's clients: proxy server ip address (proxy): 10.1.1.1 Proxy port: 8080 I was able to find the first part but don't know where to change the proxy server and how can I connect to emails and BB messaging. I need a lot of help or I might just give up having a BB in Nokialand.

cancel my Blackberry Curve 9300 association with the wireless service provider. I transferred it to my son that has another service provider and is getting all the services from the device with them, less to set up his email account.

We have an old iPhone 3G that is no longer on a Bell contract. We have installed Apps on the iphone through the computer but I cannot get the the wifi to work on it. Does it need to be under contract with a carrier or have a SIM card in order for wifi to work?
