Samsung galaxy ace duos S6802 incoming call always busy. I try to hard reset nothing happens. Call forwarding are disabled. Please help me to fix.it


When a Samsung cell phone becomes unresponsive or when the device slows to a crawl, a reset may be in order. There are two primary methods used to reset the phone. Users should always start with the soft reset when the phone locks up or programs slow down due to memory or software response issues. A soft reset is akin to a reboot of the machine and usually solves most problems without any loss of user data. A hard, or master, reset is required when the phone completely locks up and becomes unresponsive to any cellular signals. This second and more drastic reset deletes all personal data, preferences and settings so that the device is restored to the original factory configuration.
Perform a Soft Reset
Step 1 Press and hold the power button for 10 to 20 seconds.
Step 2 Release the power button and tap the "Power Off" option under the "Device Options" menu that appears. Tap "OK" to initiate the shutdown.
Step 3 Press the power button again to restart the device.
Perform a Hard (Master) Reset
Step 1 Tap the "Menu" key from the home screen and then tap "Settings."
Step 2 Go to "Privacy" and tap "Factory Data Reset" to review the Factory Data Reset information.
Step 3 Review the Factory Reset options. Place a check next to "Format USB Storage" to clear your device of user data, such as music, pictures and other account settings.
Step 4 Review the disclaimer and verify your changes before tapping "Reset phone."
Step 5 Tap the "Erase Everything" or "Yes" buttons to confirm the reset the phone to factory settings. The device initiates the restoration process to the original factory configuration.
Perform an Alternative Soft Reset
Step 1 Power off the phone. If the phone does not turn off, remove the back cover of the phone and take out the battery. Wait between 10 and 30 seconds and then replace both the battery and the cover to restart the device.
Step 2 Simultaneously hold down the power/lock keys.
Step 3 Release the keys when the Android screen appears.
Tips
  • The ATT Samsung SII models have an alternative hard reset that requires you to simultaneously hold down the "Volume Down" and power keys after an alternative soft reset, and then release the power button, bringing up the menu titled "Fastbook, Recovery, Clear Storage, and Simlock." Use the "Volume Down" key to navigate to "Clear Storage" and then press the power button. Press" Volume Up" for "Yes" and "Volume Down" for "No." This will reset your device to its original factory setting.
  • A soft reset on a Galaxy S phone involves pressing the "Volume Up" key simultaneously with the power button.
  • Some older Samsung models have a reset button located behind the battery cover. Press the reset button using a small, blunt object.

Warnings
  • A factory data reset removes all user data and settings associated with the current account. Make a backup of all data on your device before starting a hard reset.

Hi,

first reset the phone and then try the below instruction .How to Reset a Blackberry


There are three main types of Reset that apply to the Blackberry. These are listed in order below. Instructions for Blackberry Pearl are slightly different - see bottom section of the Tip.

1) Soft Reset - simply press the ALT+RIGHT SHIFT(CAP)+DELETE keys.

This reset stops all applications that are running on the Blackberry and will help if you are having problems connecting the device to computer. This reset will not erase any information from your device.

2) Double Soft Reset - this reset is almost equivalent to a full hard reset. First perform a Soft Reset as outlined in Step 1.

As soon as the screen is no longer black - repeat the steps once again exactly as before.

This takes you to another screen showing an hour glass. Allow the device to reset. This helps if the device has suffered a more serious error. Be aware you may loose some information from your device. A backup is advised prior to proceeding if at all possible.

3) Hard Reset - this is the full blown reset and will fully reset the device to help resolve critical errors with software or hardware. Again back up important information before proceeding if possible.

Note: For RIM models 850, 857, 950, or 957, you must insert the end of a paperclip or similar blunt object into a small recessed hole on the back of the unit and depress the switch inside. The device will reboot and be hard reset.

Other Models: With the device turned on - remove the battery for 30 seconds or more. Now replace the battery. The device will reboot and be hard reset.

Blackberry Pearl: To reset to factory defaults enter 'Options' from the main menu. Scroll to Security Options and press the trackball. Choose 'General Settings'.

Press the left soft key, then scroll to "Wipe Handheld" with the trackball and press the trackball. To initiate the factory reset, your phones security code may be required in order for the process to complete. Your phone will now be restored to its original settings on leaving the factory.

A hard reset can be achieved with the Pearl in the same way as outlined at Step 3 by removing the battery.

Be aware that resets such as these may erase data, such as contacts, ring tones, pictures, text messages and stored Internet files and emails. Make sure to back up important information beforehand if at all possible. You can obtain software to back up the device to your computer directly from Blackberry right here.

Hope this Tip helps. If so please do leave a vote for the solution.

WON'T TURN ON




Hi,when a phone does not come on, it is either the battery of the phone is dead,
might need to be charge or replaced with another battery.

you can use another battery to test if it is the battery the fault.

The other thing to check is if the phone memory is weak and may need to be restored
back the phone memory.
will need to be flashed.
if too weak to power up the phone all application you downloaded on the phone has
VIRUS and has affected the phone memory.


First Charge the battery for longer hours before using another battery to confirm
if the battery cell is the problem.

If not battery, in think you will have to flash the phone memory for it to come back to life.
You can use the link below to know about how to flash the phone.

I downloaded a bunch of ringtones and a few wallpapers to my phone. Today the screen went out on me. I can't see the screen to delete the stuff out or to reset it. What do i do


Occasionally you may need to reset your Pocket PC Phone. A normal (or soft) reset of your device clears all active program memory and shuts down all active programs. This can be useful when the device is running slower than normal, or a program is not performing properly. A soft reset is also necessary after the installation of some programs. If a soft reset is performed when programs are running, unsaved work will be lost.
To perform a soft reset:
o Use the stylus to lightly press and hold the RESET button on the bottom of your device. The device restarts, and then displays the Today screen.
Warning! Always turn off your device before performing a soft reset or installing/replacing the battery.
You can also perform a hard reset (also known as a full reset). A hard reset should be performed only if a normal reset does not solve a system problem. After a hard reset, the device is restored to its default settings-the way it was when you first purchased it and turned it on. Any programs you installed, data you entered, and settings you customized on the device will be lost. Only Windows Mobile software and other pre-installed programs will remain
To perform a hard reset:
  1. Press and hold both soft keys on the device. Keep these keys pressed, and at the same time, use the stylus to lightly press and hold the RESET button on the bottom of your device.
  2. Release the stylus but keep the soft keys pressed when you see the following message on your device screen. "Do you want to erase all user data and restore to manufacture default?" will appear.
  3. Slide open the hardware keyboard, and press R to restore to factory default or press X to exit the hard reset process.
Hope this helps, let me know if I can help you with anything else.
