Sansung SPH A660 cell phone time clock frozen and will not advance until you touch some buttons to wake up the software for the time to update, therefore the alarms are useless because they are tied to the clcok which does not update.

You may need a software update to your phone. You will need to call your cell provider and inform them of the problem. A software update will usually clear this up.

How do I change the time back an hour on the Samsung SPH-A660...its driving me nuts!!!! There is nothing in the manual for this either.


The Time on most Cellular Phones is controlled from the Network, so there is no way for the user to manually adjust it. Try turning the phone off for a few seconds, and when it boots back up, the time should be updated. If not, it might take another hour or two, but it will eventually be correct.

hope this helps

Iphone 3gs wont work. white flashlight screen?? please help


If iPhone doesn't appear in iTunes or you can't sync iPhone
  1. The iPhone battery might need to be recharged. For information about charging iPhone, see "Charging the Battery" in the iPhone User's Guide.
  2. If that doesn't work, disconnect other USB devices from your computer and connect iPhone to a different USB 2.0 port on your computer (not on your keyboard).
  3. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

    Note: If you enter the SIM PIN incorrectly three times, you may need to contact your carrier for a Personal Unlocking Key (PUK) to enable your SIM card again.
  4. If that doesn't work, restart your computer and reconnect iPhone to your computer.
  5. If that doesn't work, download and install (or reinstall) the latest version of iTunes.
If you can't make or receive calls, send or receive text messages, or access email or the web
  1. Check the cell signal indicator in the status bar at the top of the screen. If there are no bars, or if it says "No service," try moving to a different location. If you're indoors, try going outdoors or moving closer to a window.
  2. Check to make sure you’re in an area with network coverage. Go to your carrier's website to see network coverage areas.
  3. Make sure airplane mode isn't on. From the Home screen choose Settings, then turn Airplane Mode off.
  4. If that doesn't work, turn airplane mode on, wait 15 seconds, then turn airplane mode off again.
  5. Make sure to include an area code for every phone number in your contacts list that you use to send or receive text messages.
  6. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

    Note: If you enter the SIM PIN incorrectly three times, you may need to contact your carrier for a Personal Unlocking Key (PUK) to enable your SIM card again.
  7. If that doesn't work, there may be an issue with your wireless service. Call your carrier or go to your carrier's website.
  8. If that doesn't work, restore the iPhone software. See Backing up, updating, and restoring your iPhone and iPod touch software or see "Updating and Restoring iPhone Software" in the iPhone User's Guide.
MMS: Original iPhone does not support MMS. MMS is available on iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS if it is supported by the wireless carrier. For more information, please see iPhone: System requirements for MMS.

If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond See iPhone and iPod touch: Frozen and unresponsive for information on addressing these symptoms.
  1. iPhone OS 2.x and earlier: Press and hold the Home button until the application quits.
    iPhone OS 3.x and later: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears, then press and hold the Home button until the application quits.
  2. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
If iPhone continues to freeze or not respond after you reset it
  1. Reset iPhone settings. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. All your preferences are reset, but no data or media is deleted.

Buy a different phone and read reviews on CNET where you would've seen this http://reviews.cnet.com/cell-phones/samsung-sph-a660-sprint/4505-6454_7-30732916.html?tag=mncol;lst

Plug it in and charge the battery. You should be able to turn it on while it is charging by pressing the power button. If it doesn't respond right away try holding down the power button until it turns on (well, at least 10 seconds or so). It is possible that the battery lost it's charge completely, but that's unlikely unless you have run it dry multiple times.
