You have likely installed some application that is interfering with phone. Start with latest application you installed, then gradually uninstall all application you added to phone till problem is fixed. To view and uninstall applications, go to Start/Settings/Remove Programs.

If you have no luck with this, then Hard Reset your phone. You can do a Hard Reset which will reset your phone to its original factory settings. Any applications or personal data you put on the phone since owning will be lost. You can recover personal file if you have backed them up, of if you have License 'Key' numbers you got when you purchase them. Some App suppliers will have you an record and will email your Lic # if your email has not changed since purchase.

To Hard Reset, turn off your phone and then turn it back own while holding down both left and right soft keys till you get a screen asking if you want to Reset it. Another Hard Reset method, if you can get to Start Menu/Accessories folder when phone is powered, is choose Clear Storage and clear the storage. This may not work on some phone models, but note this method will also reset your phone to 'as purchased' state, with all stuff you added since removed.

Note a Soft Reset is the same thing as just turning phone off then back on as normal. It does nothing but re-power your phone, but a Hard Reset recovers your phone operating system from phones MFG ROM and resets it back to original as purchased state.

My t-mobile g1 constantly reboots itself and/or


Heres what to do. Take the battery out and put it back in. You will want to hold both the home button as well as the power button when you power the phone back on. Keep holding these buttons until a screen pops up with a triangle on it and a phone below. Wait 5-10 seconds, and then press the home and power buttons together again. This will bring up the restore options to factory restore the phone. If this does not work, you will need to contact T-Mobile regarding the phone issues.

Dash freezes on startup screen


Take battery out and leave it out for about a week. It may reset.
And take out your SIM card.
That resets my phone if it works then it works.
Good luck

Freezes at startup at ATT logo


Unfortunately, if you can't solve this problem with the other fixes, you will need to completely reset your phone. You will lose all of your self-installed applications, contacts, SMS messages, or anything else unless it is on an SD card or a copy on the web such as webmail/calendar data. Hopefully you backed up your phone somehow.

RESET THE PHONE AS IF IT CAME STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BOX:

Power down the phone any way you can. ON/OFF button or removing the battery.

With battery back in place, phone off and all prayers completed for the data about to be sent to heaven, hold down the UP portion on the navigation wheel (the wheel in the center of the phone with the clicky center button) and while still holding this button down, press the power button on the top right of your phone (you will have to press it for more than a second as you probably already know.)

You will get this scary looking black screen with colored text asking for confirmation of the reset. You can chicken out and abort by pressing any of the number keys.

If you proceed. Wait patiently.

TADA! Good luck and sorry.

SPV C500 Charging problem


If you mean the amber 'charging' light does not light when charging, note your PC must have a working Microsoft ActiveSync installed on an XP, Mobile Device Manager on a Vista PC, before the phone will charge from a PC USB port.

If it will also not come on when the AC charger is connected, then I would suspect a bad light or what ever supplies the light.

How do you know it is not chargeing if the phone comes on. Are you saying the phone will only come on when plugged in a PC or AC Charger? If so, I would suspect the battery. Unplug it and clean both the battery terminals on the battery those on the phone the battery mates with. You can use a clean pencil erasure.

Batteries are cheap on ebay.

Can't Text Message on my wing


Make sure you have the current version on your device. Log in to your T-Mobile account and go to Support then click on Phone & Device. You should be able to verify what your version is upon upgrading to the newest software. When I had my Wing, I did that and it helped tremendously with texting, freezing, resetting, and it also helped with security settings also. Also, be sure that you dont have alot of texts in the inbox, outbox, drafts, and sent folder that drastically decreases the device's physical memory and causes freezing also. Try to keep all pictures, files, videos, music, and 3rd party applications on your memory card. Windows Mobile devices are known for bugs and freezing and any little thing can set them off.
