How do I asswer an incoming call on my new Samsung Captivate Galaxy phone? Help me please!

Answering a call:

When a call is received the phone rings and displays the caller's
phone number, or name if stored in the Address Book.
1. At the incoming call screen:
• Touch and slide to the right to answer the call.
• Touch and slide to the left to reject the call and send it to
your voicemail.

a predefined text message to send to the caller.

I have a nokia n95-1. I have copied sim contacts to the phone which have duplicated when I synchronised with Outlook. I can cope with that. What I dont understand is why the numbers of any of my contacts...

When you receive a phone call, the phone will look up in it's address book to see if it can find a match for that number, if there is only one match, great, it will display it, if there is more than one match, it would be difficult for the phone to 'guess' at who is calling, so instead it just displays the number.

First make sure you do not have duplicate Entries for the same number.
I would suggest you to do the following:
  1. Make sure you have copied all the contacts from your SIM to Phone
  2. Delete all the Entries from your SIM by selecting them at once
  3. Make sure you do not have any Duplicate Entry in the phone book
  4. If you suspect having duplicate entries, Sync. the phone with Outlook and search for Duplicate entries to delete them

Please make sure you have selected the default memory as SIM and Phone. If you have stored your contacts in the Address book of your Phone memory and selected the Sim card memory as the default phone book it is obvious that when receiving a call your phone will try to look for that number in the default memory selected by you or vise-versa.
Go to phonebook > Settings > and select the memory in use as Phone and SIM

Hope it is not confusing

Please get back for any clarification

Is there any way to make the persons name appear for a text

It should be as simple as adding their name and number to the address book on the phone.

Make sure to list the number under the Mobile Phone line.

While in the address book, there is usually a line that says "New Entry" or "Add number" etc...(without the type of phone I cant get specific).

Another method is to into the text message itself and do an options click (again without the phone cant be specific) and there should be an option to add the number to the address book.

Incoming callers names dont show up..

Check and see if your contacts have the country code added to the front of their mobile numbers.

E.g Samoa (00685) mobile number or (+685)

Keep me updated with your progress.

Trouble with contacts

Was your Sim card copied to the address book?

You may have to fix the entries copied from the sim card into the address book so that the cell phone number is in the correct field as well as the names. By default it may not be properly stored into the correct fields.

That means that there is a double entry. the number saved in your address book has eitehr been saved twice or saved twice with different names. Delete the entry in the address book then turn off and on your phone. you should see the name of the other entry now.

Contact Name not being displayed while call comes in

Give your phone a format. Phone will be ok. For format press *#7370# it will ask you security code then press 12345., will take some time................ but don't forget to backup all your contacts and necessary files first.

Cell phone

try this. The menu names may vary depending on the model or even service provider. look for a simmilarly meaning menu name

For missed calls, made calls or received calls
Go to
menu, call history, erase History, then click on whichever option you want to clear it. you can also clear all.

if you only want to erase just one entry go to call history, go to the category you want(missed, outgoing,incoming) then scroll to your particular one and click options, erase

Assuming you want to erase the recipients of txt messages, go as if you want to send a text(menu, messaging, send message, text message.) then on recent list, scroll and select your desired entry and press options, erase

Good luck

Phone not ringing from certain numbers

On many phones, and this sounds like one, you can assign entries in your phone book to different groups (e.g. friends, family, work, etc) - and then set the phone's ringtone (and other behaviours) depending on which group the caller's number has been assigned to. A starting point might be to investigate whether all the numbers which display this odd behaviour seem to come from the same group. If they do, then you need to have a good look at all the settings for that particular group. A.
