Try restoring the phone using itunes. Make sure that you have the latest version of itunes by going to www.apple.com/downloads then connect your phone to the computer and when the phone displays in the left hand pane of itunes, click on the image and choose restore. Go here for further assistance.

How to lock or unlock a Samsung Intensity


Many people like the Samsung Intensity because of its slide-out QWERTY keyboard. However, one drawback to the phone for some users is that, unlike a flip phone, the numeric keypad is always exposed. When the Intensity is kept in a pocket or purse, this can result in accidental phone calls, multiple all-black pictures, and sudden activation of the voice command feature.

Luckily, you can lock the phone's keypad to keep it from engaging any functions when you're not using it. Locking the keypad is easy. Just hold down the 0 (zero) button for about two seconds, and a message will pop up telling you that the keypad has been locked. While it's locked, you won't be able to use the numeric keypad.

The standard way to unlock the phone is to press the upper right options button (the one that you would typically press to bring up your Contacts list) and then press the center OK button. (You will see prompts for both of these buttons when the phone is locked.)

However, there is also a quicker way to unlock the phone -- just slide the keyboard open. Sliding the keyboard open will unlock your numeric keypad immediately, and even when you close the keyboard the phone will remain unlocked. If you want to lock it again, you'll have to hold down the zero button to re-lock it.

You can also enable Auto Key Lock mode, in case you think you'll forget to lock your phone. With Auto Key Lock mode turned on, your phone will automatically lock itself when it's not in use and the backlight goes off. You can turn Auto Key Lock mode on or off from the Phone Settings menu.

Keypad Lock/unlock feature samsung a767 propel


Pretty frustrating, huh? Especially with the wait time after you press each button. You'll be surprised at the solution.

I searched the manual, looked at all the options in the phone, searched the internet, and called tech support and talked to the guy for 20 minutes, all without any help.

I mentioned it one day to my receptionist. She took the phone, slid it open, and the keys were immediately ready for use. It's a shame Samsung never bothers to tell us about that. Or in the case of the tech support guy, don't even know.

It turns out to be a nice feature, and now whenever it asks me if I want to lock the keyboard, I say yes. I don't have to worry about starting a call if the phone is in my pocket and I move the wrong way. When I do want to use it, I just slide it open and get to work.

Cect i9 slide to unlock will not open


THIS WORKED FOR US: Hold down the power button until you see the "CANCEL" icon; tap around the screen until the "CANCEL" button turns blue - this will take you back to the slide feature. MAKE NOTE OF WHERE THIS SPOT IS ON THE SCREEN. Repeat the "cancel-screentap" process to find a 2nd spot in another area of the screen. While on the "slide" screen, draw a line between the 2 spots; when you return again to the "slide" screen, the "slide" should work.

ONCE YOU HAVE OPENED THE PHONE do 2 things:
  1. RECALIBRATE the screen
  2. LENGTHEN the screen saver time-out to something other than the shortest time available.

Hope this works for you - GOOD LUCK!

PS - dunderground posted the following solution in Apr 2009:

"The fastest way is to be on the slide-lock screen & hold the side volume button in the Up position until "Press volume down key to check" comes up onscreen. This may or may not work on all firmware versions on the current i9, but works on most. Make sure to hold the button firmly in the Up position. You will first see the normal volume speaker icon show onscreen and the volume rise, but just keep holding it Up, and eventually you should see the pop-up box noted earlier. The moment you see that pop up onscreen, immediately press the side volume button in the down position. A white calibration screen should now show & you can calibrate the touch screen using the stylus."
