    Wow...I HATE this phone SOOO much..and I bought it through Metro...reported problem w/ them almost two months after got phone...kept getting "oh..well...try this, try that"..and they would not replace it, EEEEK! Now..I can NOT take pics at ALL :( it is very aggrivating..specially since it cost OVER $200!!! First started w/ certain keys would type wrong I have like most the keys do this! Then right after keys started messing up...I had to start taking games off of the phone for memory problems...completely emptying out calendar and message storage as well as minute storage..everything empty and STILL it says MEMORY FULL!!! I'm going through the BBB for this one...just thought I'd add my word on it!!! :) Good luck All!!!

    me to!! my phone shuts off sometimes while im typeing,and that memory problem is DRIVEING ME CRAZY!! it started one week after i got the phone and when i took it back they took off the battery cover and said theres a sticker that has ink on it and that it had been wet! it wasnt any where near water the whole week i had it!! either they gave me a used phone or its a scam to not honor the warranty! either way im very unhappy with the phone and metro pcs! in the user guide on page 134 it says u can reset the phone but it warns that it may also end your service..does antone know about this??

  • ttoffen Jan 11, 2009

    Having the same kind of problems. Keys type the wrong letters, memory saying it is full when I have 3 pictures in my album. I know it is not taking up 22.09 MB because the pics are small and I've had more in there before. I cannot take or receive anything unless I delete one. I used to be able to keep at least 30 pics in my phone. I don't know what to do. This is stupid. I've tried everything, even dis-membering my phone and cleaning it. Still nothing works. Lemon phone!

  • tall boy Apr 26, 2009

    my phone tell me that most of the memory is being used up by my photos. i don't have any photos. the phone will not let me save or store anything because all the memory is being used up by my photos. i jus want to see if you could erase all my memory usage or just format the phone's memory usage.

I can't tell you how to fix this problem...but I CAN tell you WHY it has this problem...and maybe that will help you getting a refund or exchange..frankly this phone shoulda been recalled a LOOOONG time ago!!! :( I bought this phone about 2 years ago (the older model)...the same thing happened to me...before it happened, I used all the extras on the the camera, d/l'ed games, d/l'ed ringtones, etc...etc..NOW, if there is some sort of issue w/ any of these, they shoulda let people know this BEFORE they bought it!!!
My sister went to buy herself a cell through Metro PCS in TX., she told me she was going to buy the same exact phone I have, but leared away from it when she found out WHY I had the problems I had had :(...she told me that the lady behind the counter was NICE enough to inform her that this phone had a memory problem caused from downloading any type of voice file, ring tones...etc...etc.!!! So, for THOSE of you who HAVEN'T done this...PLLLEASE, save yourself the headache and DON'T d/l ring tones...OR if you have, and you are HAVING this issue...then make sure and mention this to the place that sold it to might do some research on the net to pull up PROOF on this issue as well :)!!!

Hope this helps some of yas :)!!!
Have a GRRREAT year!! :)

I bought a samsung sgh-a887 and am trying to get my sim to regester in it from my old phone. cant find the sim unlock code anywhere and my carrier wont give me the code because its not a new phone. can u...

Of course your network provider didn't give that samsung sgh a887 unlock code except you still have a good standing account with them (in contract), but don't worry you can get samsung unlock code from third party sites. They usually sell a lot of models unlock code for any network provider. Good luck and have a try!

I erased all pics and ring tones and number off my samsung 8ch-r410 but it still says memory full when i try to take do i fix this problem

Has your phone been turned off since you erased them?

It may be a software glitch. turn your phone off, take out the battery, take out the SIM card, wait 15 seconds, put everything back in and power on your phone. This may be all it takes to reset the memory.

If this doesn't fix the problem you may want to consider purchasing a micro SD memory card if your phone has the option to carry one.

This would give you much more memory than what your phone comes with equaling more pics for you.

hope this helps plz remember to rate my help thnx.
