Samsung :: Hard Reset For Sch-r451c

Dec 15, 2009

Phone: Sch-r451c
Mood: frustrated

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.

Samsung :: I900 Hard Reset

Jan 8, 2009

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?'

Samsung :: I607 Blackjack Hard Reset

Sep 8, 2007

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.

Samsung :: Hard Reset Blackjack - No Phone Service

Jul 28, 2007

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?

Samsung :: Omnia Hard-reset Phone / WiFi Wasn't Working Properly

Dec 16, 2008

I just purchased an Omnia through Verizon a week ago. they set up my email account in store, since then I had to hard-reset my phone because the WiFi wasn't working properly. well, ever since then I am getting those gibberish "OZ Mail" text messages. What I've read on the internet is that I am getting these texts because my first account wasn't deactivated. so now I get these texts, then the email notification. I don't know what I can do to uninstall something since I really don't have anything that isn't factory default on the phone anyway. so confused. these texts are really annoying.

Samsung :: I760 - Managed Phone To Work On Local Network / After Hard Reset It Stopped Working

Dec 18, 2009

I got my I760 a couple weeks ago and after a lot of struggling. I managed to make it work on my local network. At first when I dialed a number it made this strange sound and hanged up the call after 3 seconds, no text messages or incoming call at all. Then I just left to rest (I guess that's all I did) and on the next morning it was working just fine, incoming and outgoing calls, texts, everything. So I had the magnificent idea of having a hard reset. Now my phone wont work at all, same problem as before, the only difference is that now when I call to it, the phone rings but then hangs after a second even if try to pick it up. Its WM 6.1, its not on flight mode cause of the signal, I am on a covered area, it connects to WiFi just fine, I just ran out of ideas.

Is there any way to reset the phone without doing a hard reset? Two days ago my speaker in the earpiece went out. Last night the phone decided that the screen would not work with the phone closed. I assumed it was probably a side effect of some program I've downloaded, so I deleted everything I've downloaded to the phone, cleared all internet files and all cookies, but it's still not working.

Samsung :: SCH R451C - What Sort Of Modifications I Can Do?

Dec 29, 2009

I have a ST Samsung SCH R451C. I've downloaded the "hacker manual" for the R450, noted all codes I can find on threads pertaining to my phone. I haven't downloaded any programs or tried to do anything to my phone yet. I want to find out more about what I can do to the phone. I have modded Motorolas before and found it cool to be able to change things. I have also had phones that didn't require modding programs because they were "naturally" modifiable. This phone is a dud in the customization aspect and I'm wondering if any of this will allow me to do anything with it. I started looking for info because I wanted to see if there was a way to change the word "Home" on my home screen. All of the phones I've owned in the past have allowed me to change this to anything I want without any mods, but this phone won't let me do something even this simple. I guess that's what I get for screwing up so many contracts, but since this is what I have for now, I was just wondering if anything on this phone is customizable and if so, how much and what sort of mods I can do? Just any general information would be good and we can go from there.
