Nokia 7205 intrigue draining battery

I just purchased this nokia 7205 for use on page plus. The phone works fine, but it completely drains the battery in about 7 hours. I looked at my usage history and it shows the phone is connecting to data even though I have not activated the network (page plus does not support data and web on this phone) I am not sure what the problem is, but I bought new batteries and it does the same thing. Any ideas?

You will need to turn off the Wifi on the phone, as it searches new places to connect it sucks power. Simply turn off the Wifi in the settings menu and let us know how the phone performs over a 48 hour period.

Phone keeps shutting off and then it wont turn on


Most of that problem happens if your battery pack need to be replaced with a new one. So better check your battery first. If this trick still not working, there must be a hardware problem with your phone. Its better to bring it to a repair center to get it fix.

Phone will not stay on. It shuts down, restarts,


This is a KNOWN problem with this phone.

Read all of this answer before deciding what you want to do. You'll have several options:

To correct the problem yourself you'll need to have another (older) phone (not a 7205 Intrigue) that your phone number can temporarly be transferred to. Then, follow these steps:

1. Assign your phone # to a different device using its EIN.

2. Startup the other phone and make sure all text messages & other undelivered stuff is picked up by the other phone.

3. Turn the other phone off, reassign your # to the 7205 Intrigue, and start it up. Problem solved!

Some key points:
- you can do this yourself on Verizon online--if you have another operable device to switch to; otherwise, you can go into a Verizon store and have them switch to a test phone for you. Obviously, the other phone cannot be a 7205 Intrigue.

- after switching your # to this new device, you MUST wait SEVERAL MINUTES and confirm that all the msgs floating around in the system while your Intrigue has been malfunctioning are delivered to the new phone.
If you switch back and forth too quickly the problem will NOT be solved.
Nokia is aware of this problem and sent a bulletin on 7/30 stating that the bug will be addressed in the next software release for this phone (no target date specified.

Intrigue owners will not receive any notification when this software release is available, and that the phone will have to be brough to Verizon to have them load the update.

Unless you're attached to the Intrigue, exchange your phone for a different model and avoid this headache! (That is, of course, if you kept the original packaging which Verizon requires for exchanges of even faulty, nonfunctional equipment.

Call verizon, and see if the software update has been released. a. If so, go have it installed on your phone.
b. If not, do the EIN switch. If the problem happens again, go back to step II.

Need programming codes for Nokia 7205


Hi,
Is there a specific reason you need the code? The following are the most common nokia programming codes: On the main screen type in:
*#06# for checking the IMEI
*#7780# reset to factory settings.
*#67705646# This will clear the LCD display
*#0000# To view software version.
*#2820# Bluetooth device address.
*#746025625# Sim clock allowed status.
#pw+1234567890+1# Shows if sim have restrictions.
*#92702689# - takes you to a secret menu where you may find some of the information below:
1. Displays Serial Number.
2. Displays the Month and Year of Manufacture
3. Displays (if there) the date where the phone was purchased (MMYY)
4. Displays the date of the last repair - if found (0000)
5. Shows life timer of phone (time passes since last start)
*#3370# - Enhanced Full Rate Codec (EFR) activation. Increase signal strength, better signal reception. It also help if u want to use GPRS and the service is not responding or too slow. Phone battery will drain faster though.
*#3370* - (EFR) deactivation. Phone will automatically restart. Increase battery life by 30% because phone receives less signal from network.
*#4720# - Half Rate Codec activation.
*#4720* - Half Rate Codec deactivation.

Hope this helps, Joe
