Re: samsung i730 phone how to do a hard reset

So you lost the stylus i would suggest finding a replacement one because that is kind of important however there are many blue tooth devices that require a stylus and you can get pen stylus combo sets.  To do a master reset on the i730 you are going to hold down the power button slider place the stylus in the rest hole on the bottom of the phone then hold for five to ten seconds and release the power slider and then remove the stylus from the reset button.  This should work and the phone is very particular about order and timing.  You might have to try it several different times but this should work for you=)

Samsung i730 is frozen at align screen

I don't have the solution, but this is directed to "Guest" (that posted on Nov. 3, 2007.): I don't think you'd want to call Verizon because they're simply the carrier for the network. Samsung made the phone, so even though it says "Verizon Wireless" on the phone, the people you should contact would be from Samsung. Samsung would know more about the techical details of the i730, since they manufactered it. Sorry this is so long......

Ok not turning on is kind of vauge.  This is what I would recomend trying.  First off pull the battery and put it back in it should automatically boot in about 5 seconds.  If this does not work use the power button slider on the side of the phone.  If that does not work use your stylus in the reset button found on the bottom of the phone on the left hand side this should restart the phone after you remove the stylus.  If that dosent work you can do the master reset and try that.  If that dosent work I would say that you are out of luck with your phone.

Touch screen suddenly stopped responding!

Make sure your device is not locked. Lock button is the "Slide Switch" lower left side of device. If locked, will show a lock in upper right part of screen. Will unlock when you pull down the keyboard. This is also a very good feature to prevent accidentally dialing when getting in/out of your car etc...To unlock, slide switch to middle position.

Freezing Samsung i730

I have had the freezing problem 3 times. Everytime it was a software conflict. The first times were after I had upgraded my computer and the "helpful" computer people had upgraded my Outlook from 2000 to 2003. Things were great for a while, but then I got screens to insert my disc for Office 2003 and I got the black screen. This only resolved after I purchased Office 2003 from e-bay. Then, I had trouble with my security program, trendmicro. I forgot the password and couldn't delete it, etc, etc. Only after it expired and I removed the program could I get around it. So, what you have to do is a hard reset: hold down the on/off switch on the side and at the same time, do a soft reset with the stylus. This re-sets the device back to factory default. You then should have a working phone. If resetting the phone doesn't help, you may need a replacement phone. If it works, then you have to re-establish a connection with the pc and restart loading your programs one by one. You could backup the device after each successful load, so that at any time the freezing starts, you could go back to a previous successful load The second problem suggests that something is running all the time behind the black screen of death--like a software conflict. If this doesn't resolve with a hard reset, you probably need a new phone. Hope this helps. Obviously I've been where you are SEVERAL times, and know the frustration. I'm now elated that my phone works, my itunes is working again(another disaster related to computer upgrade) and everything electronic in my life is humming along well for the first time in WEEKS. Good luck Georgia Newman
