Question about Verizon Communications Samsung Alias Cell Phone - Black

Samsung SHC-U740 Alias resets itself when adding songs to library

I just transferred a whole bunch of mp3s to a Kingston brand microSD card and popped it back into my phone. So I go to My Music. Screen says "Adding songs to library." Normally the little circular double arrow should be spinning. It is not. After a few seconds, the phone shuts down and resets itself.

I have not had this problem before with other songs or with this or other microSD cards. I think it may be a problem with one of the mp3 files. How could I possibly narrow it down?

    I removed ALL of the songs, and re-added only the few that I REALLY wanted to hear right now. That did it. I'll try re-formating, but I think the problem lay with one of the mp3 files. How or why I still haven't figured out, but I know Verizon software doesn't like things that come from sources other than verizon (e.g. third party ringtones).

I just found a great site that offers free ring tones, i've tried different ones, and yes, the Alias doesn't work that well with them, when someone calls, the ringtone is low and you can barely hear it. Myxer.com offers the best site for free ringtones and such, you just need to change the phone details to schu700, for some reason ringtones don't work if you put down Alias as your phone. I love the site due to that you can change the volume to high.

I also got a data cable for the phone, My laptop with Vista wouldnt' work even after downloading software online, Then I tried it with my windows xp desktop and it works.

I can't format my new micro sd card


The Samsung Alias works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card and will not work in devices not designed to work with them. You need to use a microSD card, 2GB or smaller.

hi thanks for using fixya!

Unfortunately, you cannot. Verizon phones have integrated SIM cards that you cannot take out. You cant unlock a verizon phone.

Cannot format memory card


The Samsung Alias can only use up to 2gb microSD cards. I had this same problem after purchasing a 12 gb card only to discover that I could not use it with this phone. Hopefully this will be fixed when they make the Alias 2.
