Question about Samsung SCH-a930 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

My phone won't send/receive calls or text messages. Keeps stating the cdma network is not available. I went to the verizon store and they said there was a problem with their network and all samsung phones. My husband called today for an update on the situation and the customer service rep said that there wasn't as issue, apologized for the store telling me that and said they would call when he gets home to trouble shoot the phone. I reset it to factory default settings but it is still not working. I can't call verizon now because this is the only phone line I have.

I had the same problem today - phone was working fine and then started with the cdma network not available. I turned the phone off, removed the battery, put it back in and turned the phone back on. It seems to be working OK now. This battery has had some issues anyway so I'm thinking it needs to be replaced.

International use


No, your Verizon iPhone 4 is CDMA only and incompatible with Australian carriers which all use GSM.
The most affordable way of remaining reachable is to purchase an inexpensive pre-paid phone once you get there, however it will require using an Australian number, incurring international text charges.
If you wish to receive texts on your US number while abroad, call Verizon customer service. This will require the use of a more recent phone, compatible with both Verizon's CDMA and foreign GSM networks.

Cannot send or reply to text messages, but can receive them??


hi there!

if there's no error message and it just keeps on going to your outbox, sure you have load/minutes to send messages? hehe, do check on the message settings that you have, menu -- message -- message settings (or settings) then look for the preset number provided by your network provider (at&t, verizon, globe, smart) if you didnt change this before, dont change it now, just call your provider for the message settings. =)

Cannot send or receive picture messages with the VX 8500 Chocolate also the phone drops calls constantly. when i send a message i receive a message back stating that it was sent in another code or text.


i would take your phone to verizon and talk to them...
they might give you the same phone you have or possibly switch you to a different phone if you had previous problems like that or they ran out of that phone.

My text messaging says "Delivery Failed: (SERVICE NOT AVAILABLE)"


It's the same for me. It's because texting is blocked on your phone. Just go to a Verizon store to get it unblocked :p

Try reprogramming it back onto the network by pressing *228 and selecting option two. If it doesn't make a phone call at all, check around with friends in the area to see if they're having a simliar issue. If not, then call Verizon and they'll walk you through troubleshooting the phone.
It sounds like the transiever in the phone may be burnt out, so if troubleshooting doesnt help, then you'll need a service center. Visit verizonwireless.com for repair centers, and then call to confirm they'll repair the phone onsite rather than sending it out.

Can i Buy A Verizon Phone For Alltel?


yes it can.  it IS a CDMA phone and Alltel is a CDMA network.  I live in Ohio and activated an old vx9900 i had on my alltel plan.  you need to get a csr (call, dont go to store.  they are more knowledgeable) to enter the meid into your account.  they will know how to do this but the rest will require work from you too.  you will have to manually program the phone to work on the network.  this is easy if you have a rep that can give you the info to type into the phone.  you will open the phone and type "##program9900" and hit send. a screen will come up asking for a code.  it is all zeros.  go into the first menu setting which is something like service program.  this is where the rep will tell you what to type in for the multiple entrys under this menu.  they go one at a time and can just be typed over and hit ok.  the phone, so far for me, will not send/receive pic and vid messages and you wont be able to d/l apps and tones and use web.  just about anything is off limits except call and text.  enjoy.  its a great phone.

Verizon phone sending duplicate messages


Verizon phones sometimes have a habit of doing that. if it is a constant thing you may need to take it to verizon but if its a once and a while thing its just a hiccup in verizon's network.
