Contacts button and Start menu item not responding

Periodically, my contact button ceases to work. At the same time the "Contacts" item in the start menu does nothing when I clcik on it. Nothing solves this except a soft reset. I have no clue what is causing it. It appears to be random.

Re: Contacts button and Start menu item not responding

Since "Contacts" on the start menu fails at the same time as the button, it is more like that there is a software problem, and the button cannot open the applet that is failing. If you want to ensure that you do not have a hardware problem, try remapping the button to open another application. You can do this by going to Settings/Buttons. You might want to try using the Task Switcher, which you can turn on in Settings/System. When you encounter the problem with Contacts, then click on the Task Switcher and see how many programs are open. Use the Taks Switcher to close all the programs, and then try Contacts again and see if it works. Most applications do not close, and if you have many open applications, then it will degrade performance.

these are the steps on how to copy contacts from sim to phone contacts:

Contacts, Calendar & Tasks issues


You could try removing applications you installed, one by one with a power on reboot in between each removal, to see if an app caused the phone to do this. Start with latest app you added and progress to oldest you installed, trying to see if problem is fixed between each.

To Remove programs, go to Start/Settings/Remove Software.

If this does not work, you can Hard Reset your phone. This will cause original MFG software to reinstall itself. You will lose any apps or data you installed since new.

To Hard Reset, press and hold both left and right soft keys while turning phone on, till the Reset Screen displays.

Touch screen not responding correctly


The Axim touch screen is extremely sensitive to the placement of the protecting plastic sheet. Check that the the plastic sheet is oriented correctly - the small bended corners must bend downwards. If that wasn't the problem then remove the protection sheet and pick gently directly on the screen with the stylus to see if you get a response. Most often this is due to a problem with the screen protecting plastic sheet.

Problem with finding contacts on handheld


I suspect you have a Filter "on". If you see a bar right under the "Find:" prompt, that has a name in it, not a contact name, but rather a filter name, then this will be the reason the "P" search is not finding anything because a "P" record doesn't exist in this filter group.

Click on the Menu button (the one immediately to the left of the track ball, scroll and click on the Filter menu item just under the Help menu item. Scroll through your list of filter groups and make sure none of them are "checked". If one ore more are checked, un-check them all and retry your steps from the beginning.
