SOURCE: Samsung instinct will not turn on

If you are within 30 days of purchasing the phone, exchange it for another one. If not and you have insurance, call and ask for a replacement phone to be mailed out via advanced exchange. If you're not within 30 days and don't have insurance, call and sprint will mail you a replacement for probably about 35$. Sometimes they will waive the replacement charges.

This may have to do with the screen your phone is on. With my eternity, I have to go to the alternative screen (widget screen) for it to work.

SOURCE: Alarm icon is displayed in

I've had this same weird problem today but I think that I may have solved it.

1. Go to "Menu"
2. Go to "Settings"
3. Go to "Display and Light"
4. Go to "Widget". Among your widgets is one called "Analog Clock". Un-check it and Save the widget screen.
5. Go out of the Menu to the top screen (that has "dial", "contacts" and "menu" at the bottom.) Hopefully, the alarm icon is gone. However, the "Analog Clock" that displays the time in the widgets (opened by the small arrow on the left side of the screen) is also gone. Simply go back through steps 1-4 to get to the "Widgets" screen and check the "Analog Clock". Your Analog Clock should display and the Alarm icon should still be gone.

I know that this solution doesn't seem to make much sense because what does an Analog Clock have to do with an Alarm icon? It just seems to be a software glitch of Samsung.

Try it out and see if it works.

SOURCE: My samsung mobile GT-S5233S touch

Hello.
Please go to this link: http://my.samsungmobile.com/support/softwaremanuals/software.do?phone_model=GT-S5233S&sw_type=SW
Then click Software(1) and then the button below Download. Download and install the software. Follow the instructions there to connect the phone to the PC and the click Phone Software Update on the bottom right side. WARNING! Before doing this have the battery FULL and do not disconnect the cable until the software is updated.
If this doesn't work then the touch screen is broken and has to be replaced. So you just have to go to a Samsung "dealer" for repairs.
Please don't forget to vote me.
Good luck!
Regards, Achil

How do I fix my samsung from slow charging


Before you try any of the steps / Methods provided below try this: Turn OFF power saving mode when charging. This is not mentioned anywhere online or in the user manual but works like a magic to resolve slow charging issues. If you still face the issue try various solutions here under.
________________________ Solutions for Slow Charging Problem on SamsungGalaxy S3 Method 1-System Dump System mode is a debugging panel where you can test, debug and execute different functions. There are also useful functions to give a boost to your network speed
>Open Up Dialer
>Dial *#9900#
>Scroll down, and Click "Low Battery Dump"
>Tap to Turn On
Method 2 Sometime slow charging issue on android devices occurs because of some software. So uninstall theunwanted software from your phone and then see if the problem is resolved or not. Another thing youcan do is master reset.
To master reset your phone, the steps you need to perform are Cache partition, Master reset and Safemode.
Cache partition- When you are facing slow charging issue on your Samsung Galaxy S3 you need to clearthe cache partition. It will clear different parts of your phone storage but will not delete any personaldata. To clean cache partition, turn off your phone and press the home key, power key and volume upkey altogether. When the phone starts vibrating, release the power key but keep holding volume up andhome keys. When you see the Android System Recovery screen, release both the keys. Now forhighlighting "wipe cache partition" press the volume down key. Select the option by holding power keyand wipe the cache. Highlight "Reboot system now" and press power key to restart the phone.
Method 3 Master Reset from Setting Menu- Master Reset may delete data from your phone's internal storage suchas images, content, apps, etc. But the data on SD or SIM remains saved. Back up all the data on internalstorage.
Then Tap the menu key> Settings> Accounts> Back Up and Reset> if desired, tap Automatic restore andBack up my data > Factory data reset> Reset device. If the screen is locked, then enter password and tapContinue> Delete all.
Safe Mode- Safe mode allows you to turn on your Samsung Galaxy S3 by disabling the third party apps.Then you can uninstall the apps that may be creating the Slow Charging Problem. To turn on the safe mode turn off your phone, then hold the power key. When you see "Samsung GalaxyIII" on the screen, release the power key and hold the volume down key.Keep on holding the key untilthe phone restarts. At the bottom corner of the screen, "safe mode" will appear and now release thekey.
Then uninstall the third party apps by going Menu> Settings> More> Application managers,Downloaded> tap the preferred application, then tap uninstall> Ok.
Then turn off safe mode by pressing and holding the power key> restart> Ok.
Method 4 Download and Install Greenify
Greenify is battery saving app that works best with battery boaster lite. Greenify places your appsin hibernation when not in used, this stop your phone from lagging and leeching the battery.
The Battery Boaster Lite is a power battery tuner application.It gives you full control of your battery andCpu. This app shows what is draining your battery and how to fix it.
Method 5 Sometimes slow charging problem occurs because of the apps that keep running in the background. So,though you charge the phone for hours after hours, it shows only 35% or less charge in the battery. Toclose those apps:
> Hold the home button and release it when you see the recently used apps screen.
> At the bottom, you will find the task manager button. Tap on it, then touch End all applications.
> At the top, you will find an option RAM, tap on it and clear memory.
These steps will close all the apps that are running in the background when the phone is charging, andthis is why it is slowing down the charging process.

Sometimes my Xperia play battery will last almost 2 days. Other times it will only last 4 hours?


I would check all your setting options. Check for applications that are running in the background, check WiFi On/Off, check GPS On/Off, check 4G (LTE) On/Off, and check for Auto-Updates On/Off. I would also removed Live Wallpapers and unnecessary Widgets that are roaming around the Home Screen. Try to terminate background apps and apps that you aren't using. If you have an app that you launch and ads pop up, sometimes that app will give your phone data roaming if it is not terminated.
If these options do not solve your problem, I would take it to your nearest cell phone provider and check the issue. Some instances they will replace your battery for free.

Phone loses connection after few minutes


I looked up the battery specs for your phone. They are 3 X 200mah= 600mah battery packs. They should last 8 hrs talk time with the headsets. This style of battery pack in my experience only last about 1 1/2years and sometimes longer and "sometimes" shorter...much shorter. I bet you never had problems when you first got them. Basicly this "battery design arrangment" goes back many years before newer battery technlogy was developed. But designers still insist on using them even today. They are cheap to make. ****Time to replace them with new ones.**** Make sure you follow the mfgs charging instructions: "After battery installation, place the handsets in their base unit or charger and allow to charge for 16 hours before use. You can keep the battery charged by returning the handsets to their base unit or charger after each use. When the battery is fully depleted, a recharge takes about 12 hours. Average talk time on a fully charged battery is about eight hours depending on environmental conditions, standby time is approximately four days." Good luck
