    I have had my Instinct for about 6 weeks now and I am experiencing problems with the touch screen not responding when I go to answer a call (most of the time I end up missing the call due to this problem) What can be done about this?

    Does not respond to touch when trying to answer or hang up a call. Also when my alarm goes off and i slide the button to cancel the alarm still continues to sound. I have to shut the phone down and reboot to get it quiet.

I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM HAPPENING TO MY PHONE. IT SEEMS LIKE THE TOUCHSCREEN WORKS WHEN IT WANTS TO. I DON'T HAVE A PERMANENT SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM, HOWEVER I'VE FOUND THAT TAKING YOUR FINGERNAIL AND RUNNING IT ALONGSIDE THE EDGE OF THE TOUCHSCREEN WILL USUALLY GET IT TO WORK AGAIN, AS IF THE TOUCHSCREEN GETS PUSHED DOWN TO HARD ON THE SENSORS AND GETS STUCK SOMETIMES. **NOTE**--SOMETIMES YOU MAY HAVE TO RUN YOUR FINGERNAIL AROUND IT A FEW TIMES BEFORE IT FINALLY FREES IT. BUT SO FAR, I'VE BEEN ABLE TO GET IT BACK TO WORKING PROPERLY EVERYTIME I DO THAT.. HOPE THIS HELPS!!

    what that doesnt work and i really want my phone to work

  • KRIS87 Sep 29, 2010

    I know it doesn't sound like something that would actully work, I promise after playing with it a few times, trying that, I was able to get my touch screen to work again. that's been the best solution that I've found so far for that problem, although in some instances that will only be temporary fix, I've some phones will have that problem recurring from time to time

I have the same problem with my instinct since the touch screen is plastic and very thin i guess that it has broken conections somewhere you can buy a new screen of ebay for $13.00 as for turning your phone of to stop the alarm you can just touch the volume key to spot the sound and you can use your headset to answerthe phone as well as the voice recognition on the right side of the phone and tell the phone what number to call (You really should have read your manual) My phones screen is not responding at all but I still make and recive calls just fine.

I was having trouble with the touch screen ... if I typed 9 I got 8 texting was out of the question unless you had lots of time and lots of arrowing back.
I tried calibration, then decided to update software........phone fixed......I didn't know you had to manually do the updates in the settings

How to put a simm card in


I believe Samsung Instinct S30 is offered by Sprint. It is a CDMA phone and you don't need a SIM card for that. This phone does not have a slot for SIM card, so you won't be able to insert a SIM.

Insert sim card


The Samsung Instinct handset was made for Sprint network.

Sprint is a using CDMA network that don't require a sim card.
This is why you can't find anywhere to put in a Sim card.

Also if you have a Sim card I am guessing you are going to try to use the handset on a GSM network and as I said before.. The handset is for CDMA networks so it won't work.

Sorry! :(

Samsung Instinct Screen isn't working correctly


It sounds like the Samsung Instinct digitizer is bad, not the LCD screen.

You can replace it yourself for about 15 dollars. Check out the link below for a guide to replace it and where to buy the Samsung m800 digitizer

Basically you need to go to a sprint store and have the phone exchanged because there is no way to recover the lock code.

download the desktop software from sprint.com/downloads. You might not be able to if you can't see the info to "mount device" on your phone. But once you connect your phone should show up like a usb mass storage device and let you copy the info to your desktop

Sounds like you have a bad digitzer. This parts replaces the glass front of your Samsung SPH m800. This repair will get you back up and running. It will also make your phone look new since you won't have any scratches on your screen.

Contact me if you feel like you can't do the repair yourself.
