I think there are some virus in your phone or may be some system files are corrupted.
to solve this problem you have to format your phone by the method given below.

To format N 73 Cellular Phone Steps are shown below

  1. You can remove the mmc but keep the sim card and restart your phone.
  2. Then press the keys *#7370#.
  3. The phone would ask a confirmation.
  4. Select yes.
  5. Then it will ask for a code.
  6. Type the phone lock code (the default code is 12345).
  7. There you are! your phone will restart with all the phone memory formatted.
  • Also remember that you can reset your phone but not loose any of your personal files (I.E restore the settings that came when you bought the phone while keeping contacts etc) by following the above procedure but using the code *#7780#
  • Don't apply these steps if you are not sure what you are doing.
  • Make sure you have enough battery power before beginning this procedure.
  • Formatting will erase all your contacts/messages, so make a backup of your phone before formatting.
  • If have MMC-card make a backup on mmcstore file !

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.

How do i unlock my lg 8600 flip

  • Flip open the phone so the keypad is exposed and press any button to wake the phone up from sleep mode.
  • 2 Enter the four digit unlock code using the phone's keypad. The default code is the last four digits of your cell phone number.
  • 3 Press the "OK" button to submit the code and unlock the phone.
Forgotten Code
  • 1 Turn the phone over and remove the battery cover and battery. Press down on the upper plastic edge of the cover and slide it in a downwards motion. The plastic cover will give way to the battery which can be pulled out of the phone.
  • 2 Locate the sticker on the phone hidden behind the battery. Write down the last four digits of the ESN DEC number.
  • 3 Replace the battery and battery cover and turn the phone on by pressing and holding down the "Power" button.
  • 4 Flip open the phone so the keypad is exposed.
  • 5 Enter the last four digits of the ESN DEC number. Press the "OK" button to submit the code and unlock the phone.
Power the phone on and select the "OK" button. This will trigger the phone to ask for the password.

  • 2 Press "OK." Sometimes this is simply all it requires. If not, move on.
  • 3 Enter the last four digits of the phone's number. If this doesn't work, continue to the next step.
  • 4 Enter "#4357" or "*4357." "4357" stands for "LOCK" on a traditional telephone's alphabetic keypad translation. This is the default unlock code for certain LG telephones.

    The phone blinks off in the middle of writing a text

    I have the same phone... I LOVE THIS THING!
    the only time mine will cut off is when the battery is dead. it gives no warning what so ever when I am talking on it. so I would wonder in your case that maybe you have a battery connection problem. see if the baterry is tight when you snap it in. clean the contacts also. hope this is a simple fix for you.
