Question about Cell Phones
I have "lost" most of my contact numbers which had before someone fiddled with my phone? Put my simcard in old phone and they are still in my card, but do not appear on my present phone. Can you help me? Thanks Jenny
Open your contacts and then go into it's settings and make sure that the SIM card is selected to display within your contacts

I went to the AT&T/Cingular store and they tried hooking my broken phone to their system but could not retrieve any #s (they were saved to my phone not my SIM). They told me there was no other way to retrieve the #s and that a computer cable wouldn't work bc their system would've been able to retrieve them. I knew there had to be some way of retrieving them bc I could still turn my phone on- the top 1/2 (screen) had just broken off.
It finally dawned on me to look at my husband's phone (we had the same one), write down the buttons to press & the # of clicks per button on my old phone, in order to blindly go through my entire contacts list and save each one to my SIM card. Approximately every 25 contacts I saved I'd switch the SIM card to my new phone and make sure they were all saving correctly. I'm currently still transferring all 137 contacts- grueling but well worth it. This only works if your old phone will still turn on & function even if you can't see/use the screen.
***Make sure your phone's saving your contacts to your SIM and not your phone- I thought mine was and it was one rude awakening today when I found out otherwise! I hope this helps!

Is there a memory card in the phone? If so, it might be causing a problem. I just had the same thing - phone was stuck on the opening screen. I took it back to the shop. By a long process of elimination involving other handsets and sim cards, we eventually realised it was the memory card, which i have now thrown away.
So if you have a memory card, take it out. If there is still a problem, remove the battery and sim card, put them back in, turn phone back on (without memory card).
Hope this helps,
