Question about Pantech Matrix Cell Phone

Pantech Matrix reboots during text msg

When typing a text message, sometimes the Pantech Matrix reboots, requiring you retype the entire message after waiting about 30 seconds for it to finish rebooting. Very frustrating. Anybody have a FW fix for this?

    After months of gathering input from discussion sites like this, I have a relatively (not 100%) reliable solution.



    Issue seems to be tied to poor contact with the SIM card. If you have this problem (that I was seeing several times per week, and I am not a heavy texter), then try this as a fix:


    • Power Off the Pantech

    • Remove the battery cover and battery

    • Jiggle the SIM card beneath the battery; make sure it's snuggly in place

    • Replace the battery & cover

    • Power back on

    This allows me to go months without seeing the issue (where the Pantech power cycles, particularly when editing a longer text message, more-so if you use the arrow keys to move around the message to fix a mis-spelled word). So about once every 2-3 months, I have to jiggle my SIM again.



    So this is 1000% better (ok, maybe only 900%) than it used to be.



    If you've had this problem, too, hope this solution works for you, too.

Unfortunately this is just a common matrix problem there really isn't any fix. my guess is the phone just sort of gets over loaded and reboots itself.

    It's a common problem and there really isn't a fix. Just save those longer texts to drafts periodically so at least you wont loose all the text.

Sounds like you don't have a text and multimedia messaging plan set up with your wireless provider. But if you do and it still doesn't work I would take it to one of your wireless providers stores, or call them directly.

Texting problem


Sometimes if the phone memory is full it will not allow text to be sent. You should also power your phone off and on every day or two.

Need to lock webbrowser on pantech matrix


yes..
all you have to do is call ATT and tell them to disable the internet..
if you have the unlimited text, picture, video messaging in your plan.. then disabling the internet will block your daughters from the doing the picture and video messaging..
