Question about Samsung VM-A680

1 Answer

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

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.

Insert sim card

The Samsung Instinct handset was made for Sprint network.

Sprint is a using CDMA network that don't require a sim card.
This is why you can't find anywhere to put in a Sim card.

Also if you have a Sim card I am guessing you are going to try to use the handset on a GSM network and as I said before.. The handset is for CDMA networks so it won't work.

Sorry! :(

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.

I was told by a sprint rep. that it could be due to a software program or virus on your phone. i.e. mp3s, pirated software. My brothers phone was just replaced due to this problem, although it is an LG phone not Palm. Same trouble with the no service.
