Help!Phone does nothing!

Samsung vma 680-on sprint network, is litlle over a year old, always worked great. I lost original charger, had been using car charger. Got charger from friend, show also had a samsung phone It was down to 1 bar, so charged it on this travel adapter (TADO77BE ). The charger beeped a few times, and red light on phone went on and off, then stopped. Phone was fine next day. 2nd day, put on charger again, left overnite. Next day nothing would come on! No backlight, keypad, sound, just dead! I took out to my car charger, nothing! My son took the battery out, and then put on my car charger without the battery. Nothing. He seems to think I used the wrong charger with it, and fried it! Nothing has been spilled on it, it has not been dropped! As I said, just a few hours before this, it worked excellent in m y car. My contract runs until next February. What is the best thing to try, check, buy, etc? I keep my 2 little granddaughters each dya, and we need a cell phone! Thanx, Sherry

Re: Help!Phone does nothing!

Ok you need to replace that charger cos thats the one that is doing all the damage. Check your battery voltage if its below 3v then you need to rejuvenate it back to its original capacity. It will be ok good luck.

My phone will not charge. I've tried plugging it into multiple sockets but nothing works, One time i got it to work for a split second, but it just stopped again. Before it was unable to charge, it kept...

The problem could be one of 3 things:
1) The actual charger is defective. Have you tried a car charger, a USB cord, or another charger?
2) The battery is defective. Does the problem still occur with a different battery in the phone?
3) The charging circuit in the phone is damaged, causing the phone to discharge. This happened to an old samsung phone I had for over 2 years. Unfortunately, if the above 2 solutions do not work, this may be the problem, and there is nothing you can do for it. You may as well get a new phone.

Sprint TP2 with no data

well, this is obviously not an Android handset. however I have a TP2 on Sprint and run Android as well and I get data and wifi.

I would suggest going back to the forums where the developers are working on this stuff (ie: ppcgeeks dot com, etc) and grab a newer copy.

your inquiry is obviously not supported but it does work (with GPS too). There's still no main speaker nor camera, etc but I can totally get/ use data, google maps (sucks without sound but whatever).

you likely know you can also update your OS to WM6.5 and the new Bing has navigation integrated and it's actually pretty good

Will my phone work

Above is incorrect. Boost uses two different networks each is different technology. The one using SIM cards is the IDEN network (Nextel). The other is Sprint (who owns Boost) and that does not take a SIM, it's a CDMA network. All Sprint phones can work on this network,but you must get Boost to activate the phone. They won't do this unless you are already a customer and tell them you are replacing a broken phone, then give the Sprint phone ESN# (under battery) for them to log in your account. If you have a Sprint LG Rumor it will then work without unlocking or flashing, no changes necessary.

Unlock a phone

You cannot use a Samsung Instinct phone on a GSM network like AT&T. The Instinct is a CDMA phone. In the U.S. Sprint and Verizon are CDMA networks, and T-Mobile and AT&T are GSM networks. Phones made for one network type are not usable on another network type.

Katana II on Embarq network want to use it on Sprint. Help Unlock Please

Most likely, you will have to purchase an unlock code from another website that is specific to your phone. There is no guarantee though that there is a code for it. You will also need a valid Sprint SIM Card. Please be aware though, if you do manage to unlock your phone, not all of the features may work. Features that are specific to the Embraq network will not work after the unlock. And you will not gain features specific to Sprint due to it not being an original Sprint phone. As long as you are ok with that then go for it. Look for the best price though. They vary from website to website.
