Question about Vtech Helio

1 Answer

Loosing contacts from phone directory

Hi Everybody, Maybe you can help me to figure out something it`s happening with my helio hand held. Days ago I found the message of Error and I had to reset the device loosing my phone book enterely. Then I was trying to update it with the back up I had in my computer, in the Helio Desktop. When I opened it, for some reason I don`t know I have lost mostly but not all of my contacts in the Phone book. Trying to figure out something, I was searching into the Helio files and then I found this BAK file named CURRENT, where I could see inside it (mixed with a lot of computer language that I cann`t understand) all my missing contacts. So I wonder how can I extract from this file my contacts and my categories in a simple way if it is possible. Thanks in advance and hope I have a solution for this matter. B.R. Marcelo Gaudino

Sliding problem


Hello,
Sounds like you joggled something loose internally to me. Phones cant take much abuse before things start happening. See if you can pop a few covers off, pull the battery out and see if there is anything jammed in there. Plan B would be getting a new one. But I would try forcing it to slide in that direction before getting a new one. Goodluck! Hope this helps!

My helio freezes and and reboots itself


I can't help you but it happens every day with my helio. It's more likely to happen if I'm using an app when I get the text.

Key pad doesnt work but querty pad does


Maybe your phone has water damage. You could try spraying the inside with wood cleaner. Or take it to the shop.
