Phone rings, Cant pick up!

I bought the Omnia a few days back. Sometimes, i hear the phone ring but i cant pick it up! There is no (accept) or (answer) options. Once the caller disconnects, i get a missed call notification. Why does my phone sometimes ring but i cant pick up the call??

    Ok, sometimes i can even see the "Accept" and "Reject" options but still cant pick up no matter how many times i tap the screen or press the Hard Keys. If there a solution? Can this be fixed or do i have to return the phone. Its still under warranty by the way.

  • ateekster Mar 12, 2009

    I have tried the Hard Reset. Problem occured again. This only happens rarely but still annoying. Who knows when i would get an important call.

  • ateekster Mar 12, 2009

    Have tried that. But why does the problem occure only once every 20 calls or so, and not all the time?

  • ateekster Mar 12, 2009

    ok, thank you all.. i think the problem cannot be fixed then. I will return it.. too bad, i have quite a few good programs on it. All will be lost.

    Thank you. Faulty phone it appears...

If you have the receipt, I would take this back and get an exchange. You have a faulty phone. If the fixes suggested have not worked, you have a bad phone.

Being that the phone is that new I highly recommend you return it for a replacement as it definitely sounds like you got a defective phone. This does happen and would be the wisest thing to avoid future problems down the road. Return where you purchased it. Please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.
Thank you,
Lee

    If it happens rarely it is possible it is another issue. What is your cell provider? It may be wise to talk to them directly but I myself would return the phone for a new one.
    Thanks,

    Well if you paid for the programs through your cell provider you can actually get the price of those refunded so you can add them to your new phone.
    Good luck,
    Lee

Try to reset
1.Press the soft reset hole beside your power button
2.Press the Call and Cancel Button together when you see the Samsung Omnia on the screen
3.The Reset Screen appear
This hard reset does not erase the 16GB memory. To reset everything, you could use the software hard reset by going to Settings > Hard Reset. There is also option to format the storage card.

Try reseting the phone, there should be a master reset option in the settings menu. this should restore the settings to defaults and hopefully get rid of the problem.

Windows media player does not work, no ringtones and other sounds


Hi, what causes the phone not to be able to ring out is due to the ringer inside the phone that allows you to hear a ringing tone is bad.

You will need to replace the ringer inside the phone. When replaced phone will start ringing out and you can hear when it rings out.

have a nice day.

When i try to dial out there i hear no ringing unless im on speaker phone then the phone works fine..also when people call me it rings but when i pick up i cant hear anyone unless im on speaker


One of 2 things.. either your main speaker is shot, or your phone needs programming. The new LG's often need further programming to be completed at your local service branch. Takes 5 minutes max.
