Question about Audiovox SMT5600

1 Answer

Audiovox SMT5600 Searching most of the time

My phone works great at Work and Home, but has numerous Dead Zones, where it keeps Searching for signal. My Razor always worked and rarely had Signal problems in these same areas. Is this a bad phone or weaker receiver?
I see that this phone allows for an External Antenna. Does this mean it needs it?

Not necessarily. If you very carefully open up the upper dark portion of the back of the phone (where the antenna extension is), you'll see that the antenna of the phone is actually a metal track which winds around the back of the headplate.

Check to make sure the two prongs which touch this headplate can do so without any problems. If the internal antenna is corroded, it may need to be replaced.

Most cellphones have varying antenna power, so you can expect to see differences when comparing two cellphones side by side. If you find your phone has no signal mostly when driving, check out this link: http://www.cellantenna.com/Boosters/cellphone_signal_boosters.htm

I hope this helps.
Take care,
Rob Kendrick

I had a similar problem with my SMT5600. I've found that when this happens, if I just hold the hangup key until the keypad locks, I can then unlock the phone and it will function normally. Try this to see if it helps.

Take care,

Low memory


The solution was to do a hard reset on the phone. It literally cleared everything off the
phone. Luckily I had everything backed up. Phone works great now.

Computer won't sync with audiovox smt 5600


You must install ActiveSync software on an Win XP OS available with disk supplied with phone or on MicroSoft support page.

If you are using Win Vista OS, then download latest Mobile Center software while you phone is plugged into USB port.

Phone must be recognized by OS for phone to charge. Nice Audiovox/Microsoft desigh heh? Some times you just want to get designs by the throat and squeeze them.

If phone was on ATT/Cingular originally, then you can buy UnLock code off ebay or net. If it is an older old BLUE ATT network, then the phone must be unlocked my using downloadable software you can use youself with an XP or earlier PC with an USB port. I don't know of any one selling unlock codes, based on phones IEMI code, that would work. Or at least get a guarantee if someone offers you this. If it is an ATT/Cingula or T-Mobile phone, then it can be unlocked using a code sent you base on IEMI number.

Google phones model and UNLOCK to find free downloadable software. This will also work on any HTC Typhoon phone, which the Audiovox SMT5600 is just one of many carriers that sold it.

SMT 5600 does not load OS, screen goes white and then blank.


Screen sound bad, or intermittent connection inside. You can find disassembly instructions on the net. Search with phone model and disassemble. Remove and reattach all cables in case one is lose or contact dirty.

Get an ATT/Cingular network SIM card for $6. It is a pay-as-you-GO phone SIM, but you can have ATT xfer your number to it and also make order a standard monthly contract plan for it.

If it is really an older ATT nework BLUE phone, then the new ATT Cingular network does not support it. It must be network unlocked to use on ANY carrier.

You can google the phone model and UNLOCK to get free unlock software you can use yourself on an XP PC . Software won;t run on VISTA.

you can use any USB cable, there is nothing specific about any particular brand... now the computer has to recognize the phone. You need the software/driver.
