it needs to be registered with the base on phone go to menu scroll down til you see register, registration, register base, sect it, then it will tell you to set it on base, after that wait a few minutes til its done, pick up phone, you should now have a dial tone, also if you have your manual, look up how to registar base, it might be easier instructions there.
check the settings of your phone.the battery has no relation whether you cant receive messages or you cant send unless it is fully charge when you use it...what you will goin to do is to re-format your phone. .
Try the following instructions, to personalize your Nokia E50! Profiles Warning: In the offline profile you cannot make or receive any calls, or use other features that require network coverage. Calls still may be possible to the official emergency number programmed into your device. To make calls, you must first activate the phone function by changing profiles. If the device has been locked, enter the lock code.
Select Menu > Tools > Profiles. You can adjust and customize the ringing tones, alert tones, and other device tones for different events, environments, or caller groups. To customize a profile, scroll to the desired profile in the list, and select Options > Personalise. Define the following settings: • Ringing tone — Select a ringing tone from the list, or select Tone downloads to open a bookmark folder containing a list of bookmarks for downloading tones using the browser. To listen to the selected tone, select Play. If you have two alternate phone lines in use, you can specify a ringing tone for each line. • Say caller's name — Activate the text-to-speech ringing tone feature. When someone from your contacts list calls you, the device sounds a ringing tone that is a combination of the spoken name of the contact and the selected ringing tone. • Ringing type — Select how you want the ringing tone to alert. • Ringing volume — Select the volume level of the ringing tone. • Message alert tone — Select a tone for received text messages.

You might try going to your comm manager which is in your programs list. Once you click on it it will take you to a screen that has 7 diff icons on it. If the one that looks like a phone has an X in the lower right hand corner click on it and it should solve your problem.
**Comm manager can also be axcessed by holding down the button on the left side under the slider bar if settings have not been changed**
you have to dial #*#000000
This will pull up the setup screen.
You will have to get the following info from cricket...a store will tell you.
MDN #, MIN#, and CID#, leave the NID# blank.....then u should be ready to go.
Hold down the right and left soft key while pressing the hard reset button at the bottom of the phone.. then it will ask you do you want to master reset the phone .. click yes and it will rest ... the only problem with this is that it will delete all of your info. on the phone.. ring tone and # and even pic's and video's.
In order to use tones other than the presets for text messages, you have to put new .WAV files on your phone.
Any 8bit .WAV file will work; just connect with ActiveSync and navigate to your /Windows directory on your phone, and place the files there.
You will then be able to use them as text message alert tones.
