Re: Sanyo SCP-8300

I'd suggest a new battery, if money is no problem but otherwise, if you have a volt-meter of some kind, you could read the voltage output of the charger and compare that to what it says it should be in the input-output list usually printed on the underside. If it's fine, I'd try carefully cleaning the phone's battery and charger contacts with a small amount of rubbing alchohol and some cotton swabs or tooth-picks lightly wrapped in toilet or tissue paper. If it still refuses to work, you could see if a sales-clerk at your local phone store would let you try a new battery to see if it would work. Otherwise, you could attempt internal repair/cleaning like I outlined here- keys won't work on sanyo mm 8300 phone.
Hope this helps, TechnoWolfy.

VX9400 problem

I had the same issue, but knowing some things about computers, I took the battery out for about 3 minutes or so to let the phone lose any charge it had. Then I put the battery back in, held the send button in for a minute then pushed the power button and it turned back on fine.

Sanyo MM-8300: ALL the keypads are frozen and won't work. Any solutions?

One thing you could test for is a thermal-fault in the phone's circuitry. To do this, you put your phone in the fridge over-night then, turn it on the next day and try the keypads while it's still cold from the fridge. If that doesn't help and you're brave enough to venture into the inner-workings of your phone to attempt repair/cleaning, you can read my post here- keys won't work on sanyo mm 8300 phone.
Hope this helps, TechnoWolfy.

Need help unlocking my phone from Qwest so I can use with Alltel...

Some local wireless stores can do this for a small fee. Try finding a wireless supply store and see if they offer this. Most phone companies won't do it because they want you to stay on their network, and/or they want you to buy their phones.
