Question about Samsung SGH-D500 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

'no number' missed calls

Most annoyingly my D500 is inconsistent in displaying a landline callers number both for received and missed calls. Sometimes it shows the correct number and others it just states 'No number' even fo the same caller. Even for my home landline which is stored in the phone it sometimes displays 'home' and others 'No number'. Is there anything I can do to correct this?
Thanak you

Re: 'no number' missed calls

Yes i have the same phone and repair tonnes too.

clear the numbers on the phone, not the sim. now restart the phone switch off take battery out and push the red power button. now replace the battery and switch on. copy all the sim numbers onto the phones memory and backup the numbers onto a computer (a mobile phone store will do this for $25 (ish) )

now clear the sims numbers. so now all your numbers are on the phone only. this will solve the incorrect numbers which the phone reads off the sim incorrectly.

also good idea to clear the calls incoming, outgoing, missed, received.. by deleting them, as the D500 sometimes gets these confused as they are stored in the same place and under the same file headings.

this should fix the problem. also it a good idea, if the phone or sim is old...   is to get a new sim.. just get the number and so on to be transfered across.

or.... (please backup pics, vids, numbers everything!!!) try:


good luck.

How do I answer the Huawei Vision 2 phone?

Drag to round circle and phone icon to the right to answer the call.

If you are looking for where your number is do the following:

* Go to Menu ---> Settings --> Phone --> Handset Information.

Now to see who called you you will need to do this:

* Go to Menu --> Recent Calls and you can check your recent calls, missed calls and received calls.

If you noticed right above Recent calls you see Messages, this is where you will create and receive your text messages.

Hope this helps!

On Samsung jet s8000 Incoming calls display unknown caller message, but call log shows ID

Check your Sim in another phone to confirm , if there is no CLIP then the service provider has barred you and must get in touch. Also is possible that the phone has hung up because there are errors in the software. So to reset remove the battery and the memory card from the phone. Using your PC , scan the memory card for any corrupt files or media files with virus- it is possible when they are downloaded from unsafe sites. If so remove or format the card. Now replace the card and battery and switch on the phone. If the phone hangs up then it is confirmed that the software is corrupt and will need a reinstallation. Seeking help from the authorized service /support centre is most ideal. Take estimate and decide.

How do i get my cosmo phone from a vice telling me who is calling

Caller ID on cellular phones works different than on landline phones. Unless the person calling is saved to your phonebook, it will tell you the number of the person calling, but not the name (unless the person calling has caller ID blocking, in which case it will say blocked). There is not way to change this, as it is a limitation of cellular caller ID systems.

Don't get the name of a caller display on incoming calls. the number of the caller is stored in the contacts but just comes up with "Call" on any number. Missed calls also do not display a number just (no...

The caller is using private number. If you wanna know who's calling you, turn off your phone. If the caller always call you all the time, you'll be lucky. Because there will voice message received from the operator and you are able to know the number who's calling you.

You can do that also by typing "#31#(destination no.)" then call.
