If you have a spare unit,don't bother to take apart the old broken one. Contact your service provider's Tech Support and tell them you wish to replace your broken Startac with another unit and give them the replacement units ESN. They can add the new one to your account,it will replace the broken unit. All ESN's are unique. You can REPLACE one with another,you can't take parts out to (legally) substitute one ESN for another.

Just purchased a Samsung T105g phone. twice it has dialed out by itself with the keypad locked. once was to 911. How do I stop this from happening?


I've had the same exact issue with the same model phone. It's called 911 three times and all times the phone was locked. The very last time it did it the phone fell of the fridge and it called 911. Not sure what key combo is being pressed but it must be really simple or else it wouldn't dial it like it has. The best solution is just to buck up and get another phone. This model is super cheap so it wont be a huge loss. Keep it but you may get into trouble with the law.

Won't stay charged


Normally that type of problem is determinant that the unit does not charge on the station. would you be able to charge it using a separate or different charger? If that still does not work then the problem is with the camera unit itself already. If you can find one of those camera battery external chargers you might be able to just charge the battery tehn use it with the camera.

Motorola startac st7868w only transmits with earbud & ext mic -


dear vjmusa ,

step 1 : open ur cell phone .

step 2 : check clearly the pcb board either any damage or not

step 3 : check the components of the pcb.

step 4 : most probly the small tiny capacitor might have broken .

step 5 : check with multimeter so that u can recognize the connectivity of the circuit board

check with the buzzer .. might have loose contact with the surface of pcb
or just do small scratches on the pcb , where the buzzer touches ..
so that it will get the connectivity and works fine ..

Pay as go phone


If the phone has ever been activated as a prepaid phone, the ESN is locked for 6 months, and verizon will not activate it on a postpaid account during that time. I suggest you tell the eBay seller this and try to get your money back. If however the phone has never been activated as a prepaid phone it should work fine, and you might try going to another verizon location (the rep might just want you to buy a new phone and sign another 2 year contract...)
