Question about Pantech Duo Smartphone

1 Answer

I can't make calls, text message

There are times when i can't make a call at all or send a text message and if i can it's once in a blue moon. i tried my sim card on another phone and i can make calls fine but once i switch it back to the pantech duo it's crappy. what can i do? in case this aids...i've dropped my phone a total of three times from my waist which is about 3 ft from the ground. it has worked fine after all those falls until about a week ago. i just came back from a vacation and it just started acting funny. plus i currently am using a face plate for it.

    My Pantech is the same way. When the phone is showing E on top it will work. When it goes to the 3G, which is the new updated network for AT&T it will not work. I have contacted A&T and Pantech and I ended up having to buy a prepaid phone and just put my sim card in that one.

    i have the same problem. i had the same problem before and i got a new phone (same one) and it worked perfectly fine. i only dropped it once which was on the carpet floor. why is this happing?!

  • jacksdayjob Sep 24, 2008

    I had the same problem. AT&T simply said that this phone will no longer work on their network...which I can't understand, because sometimes (seldom) it works for a few minutes (on the edge network). The phone is about a month old and a refurb... Anyway I only dropped it once (rather launched it) across the highway, into a very large field.Very fulfilling...and from that day I haven't had one single problem from that piece of trash.

    So...don't buy anymore Pantech.

    i cant not receive or text anyone!
    its very frustrating!
    i have never dropped it.
    and now it always freezes up.

    why is this?

    The same thing is happening to me! Starting probably last week it very rarely will actually send a text. I checked the Message Center Number and it was right, but this is so annoying! I need to be able to rely on my phone to text at least!

    I have the same problem. 90% of the time it doesn't work (voice call, sms, internet/wap). Midnight or so, I'll start receiving text messages and voicemail notification. In the morning, when I try to get it, sometimes it works (10% of the time) and most of the time it doesn't work again.

    mail, text and phone will not work when the 3G is on the top bar, it is okay with E or the G but nothing works with 3G. what is up with this problem? 

  • bcf7100 Jan 21, 2009

    What is wrong with this phone?? Text messages rarely go through on the first try and most calls I try to send out go from Dialing to Call Ended. I want to smash this phone into a million pieces. It used to work perfectly fine until around the first of this month, and it was all downhill from there.

My Blackberry curve 8310 constantly reboots when I'm in the middle of a text, a phone call, or when it's just sitting on my desk. It happens several times a day. It seems to happen less often if I...

This issue only occurs when trying to send a SMS text message from within the call details screen of a call in the call log.
To avoid this issue, complete the following steps to send a SMS text message from the call log screen:

  1. Open the Phone application.
  2. Open the Call Log by clicking the middle button in the toolbar.
  3. Touch the call log/contact in the list without clicking the screen.
  4. Display the menu, then select SMS Text (Name/Number).
  5. If required, rotate the BlackBerry smartphone to switch to landscape mode.

Cannot send out text messages.

hi there,
call the customer service of your service provider ( AT&T,Vodafone,Verizon etc)....they will set up message center number on your phone , the one that you have might be incorrect...your mobile operator will send you sim updates that will refresh the settings ....and then you will get the text message options

How to block unwanted Text messages?

go into call settings then common settings then call reject. I have given my unwanted number a group name and then blocked that group! Hope it works.There is also a service security thing in messaging which lets you set up trusted and untrusted lists. I am trying this also.

Text is stuck in my outbox

I had this same problem. Deleting and clicking "yes" at the warning screen would not remove the message from my outbox and the message kept resending for days.

Solution: In the Outbox, click "Menu" > Empty Deleted Items. Click "yes" at the warning. The message should now be gone from your outbox and your text buddy should now be able to regain sanity.

T-mobile credited back the resent text messages when I called them.

ONLY KNOWN FOR TELUS USERS: It's a memory issue in most cases. If you have too many applications downloaded or too many photos/video/music, it will focus the memory more on those than your texts/calls. Try either moving your photos/movies/music to a memory card, delete the photos, etc. and then remove the card, and have a friend text or call you (don't answer the call). If that doesn't work you can try deleting some of the applications. Only ones you have bought. But, don't worry, you can get them back without paying again by going to the Telus Portal, hitting the menu button, click settings, and then purchases. Once it builds the list, you should be able to click on the application and re-download it. If none of those suggestions work, try contacting you service provider and see what they suggest.
