Question about Samsung SCH-a870 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Front display does not work

I just purchased this phone brand new this week. The front display will light up for a max of 7 seconds before going blank. I took the phone back to the store and was told that it was suppose to do that. The phone gives you the option to select wallpaper for that screen but when you do it does not show. So I know its something wrong with the screen.

My new sony ericsson c 510 phone is brand new.i am used it 2 month.last week some times display inactive sim and not work phone.some time work calling the phone cut the line beep tone.display inactive sim...

Inactive sim is usually related to your SIM Card, you should try reinserting your SIM card again, to see if it works, or simply insert your current SIM card into another phone to check if there is any service. should both failed. It should be your SIM card problem, you can contact your service provider or carrier to have a replacement SIM.

Hi, the battery won't charge. We rang and spoke to someone about 2 weeks ago and they said it was probably a faulty battery and they were going to email us and send a new battery, We have heard nothing...

It could be the battery but it is also possible that charger is broken. Try with another charger and if it still doesn't work than the battery is the problem. If both of this things don't work for you than this could mean that jack on the phone is malfunctioning.

W490 Motorola inital screen comes on, then goes black.

There is usualy no certain way to tell whats to blame on a bad phone without testing, but in your case I think that it is your phone that is malfunctioning. A low/bad battery either doesn't turn on or if it does it will at leat allow the phone to go on and then displays low battery before shutting off.
If you are out of warranty period, then you can easily flash this phone fo much cheaper than purchasing a new one. I would ecoment that you first take it o a repair place to be examined.
