Question about Motorola Mobility TracFone w175 PayAsYouGo Cell Phone

1 Answer

Unable to change the time.

I am unable to change the time. Apparently, Tracfone does not come with automatic DST. Selecting ''Settings,'' ''Initial Setup'' also proves futile, because there is no Time/Date menu on the W175G model. Thanks.

MY W175 Automatically changed to dst. Had to turn it off and I dont remember if had to take the battery out or not, but when it finally picked up service the time was daylight savings time.

Text messages going to outbox.

Some reason why a mobile failed to send message and proceed outbox due to this instances.

1. Account is not sufficient
2, network signal problem
3. too many messages store on phone and may lead to full memory and unable to perform any operation.

try this method :

* try to change another simcard and test if can send message.
* erase unused data/files for phone memory free space.
* go to settings > initial set-up > master reset and reset your mobile,if ask for the code,default unlock code is 1234 or default security code is sure to back up all data of yours before proceeding cause al data will be erase and it will go back to its orifinal settings.

good luck.

Unable to set time and date on Sumsung t301g Tracfone

I had the same problem. I had the phone on when I called to set up initial service. After activation I left it on (it was charging) and tried to set time and date but couldn't get anywhere. Finally, I turned it off (hold "pwr / end" button till it turns off). When I turned it back on I got a message that time and date were now automatically set. This was about an hour and a half after intial phone call. Don't know if that wait time had anything to do with it.

How to set the daily time on Ssano model number

You might try turning the power off for a few minutes, and then turning it back on. This worked for my sons LG 600G from Tracfone. It didn't have a place to set the date and time in the menu area that the manual said it would. Of course tracfone is a little different with their phones, but when you turn it off, the correct time and date is automatically downloaded from their satellite.

Hope this helps ya.

Same problem

What they did is added you the most feasable network cluster, its not your phone .. its the connectivity on your phone through the TSP (service provider).

Time change

With some of the cell phones, you need to make sure that DST (Daylight Savings Time) is turned ON. You should go into your menu, find the clock settings (or World Clock, in some instances) and make sure DST is turned on.
