Try a PRL update if your phone supports it. If not, there are different dialer codes you can use for different phones to connect you to the nearest tower. Try to google search your phones dialer codes.

Well for the past week or so, Sidekick has been having problems with receiving text messages from other service providers such as AT&T and Sprint. It is best that you call up customer service to find a solution.

Can't call or text


Type of phone and carrier would be helpful to know. What sort of signal strength are you seeing? Is the phone displaying a carrier name? If your "online" connection is via WiFi, it will work even if your phone cannot connect to the cellular network, but you will not be able to call or text.

I cannot send nor receive calls, nor send and receive text messages as of yesterday, April 18, 2011... I am currently using a postpaid SIM... thanks


there are several factors why you are unable to send and receive messages and make outgoing calls and receive incoming calls.
network issue: are you the only one experiencing the problem? try to check with someone who is on the same location and is using the same network as you if he or she is experiencing the same problem as you. if yes, then it may be a problem with your network.
make sure that you have good signal and contact your service provider too and ask them if they have an ongoing maintenance in the area and ask if the sms and calls services are activated on your account
phone issue: if you have a good signal and still can't send, receive text messages, do and receive incoming, outgoing calls, try to do these: call the service provider and ask for the default network pin, then go to the settings of your phone, call settings, call barring, deactivate all barring
try inserting your sim card to another phone and try to send an sms
turn off your phone, remove battery and sim card and then wait for a few seconds, then put back the sim and battery and turn on the phone then try to send an sms

I have the Samsung Galaxy S (I900) for about two weeks now and never had any problems with it. Untill yesterday I was able to send and recieve both calls and texts, but now my phone is 'stuck' on emergency...


hi,

Did you drop your phone recently?
Does your unit has signal bars on it?
If none, then probably there is a hardware problem on the signal section of your unit.

Here's what you try to can do. Try removing your SIM card and place it again securely on the SIM slot.
Try also restoring to factory settings.

Hope that solves your problem.

if not, then you need your unit be repaired to service center or repair shop. complicated components inside and you might do more damage to your phone.

If phone is still in warranty, then your are welcome to return your unit to the dealer or service provider. don't attempt to open it cause that forfeit your warranty.

Hope I help you...
Don't forget to rate me. Thanks...

Best regards,
John

I couldn't get signal from the service provider. I can't text or call anyone. Neither could i receive call or texts.


If there is no signal ... there is no signal. You will have to physically move back into a area where there is signal from your provider or some provider that has an agreement with your carrier.

Emily, you should discuss this situation with your service provider as soon as you can ... I dont' know where you are located, it is hard for me to imagine youy are really in an area in North America and there is no service. I suspect a different problem ... but you should call your provider.

Thanks for your visit today.

Failure to receive text messages


Hello marshallcose,

I'm sorry but there are no settings for receiving text's. If you are having issues there are one or two things that come to mind.

Your phone gets a poor signal where you live, and it takes longer than usual to receive texts if at all.

Or there is a problem between your phone and the network signals/towers. The best thing you can try is to call your service provider as they will be the only ones able to make any changes if necessary.

Post back if you have any question's or comments and I will try to be of further assistance. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Need complete recent call log and more days for text message storage


The call listing only shows one caller by design, to help with clutter on the list. It's a little funky, but if you think about scrolling through pages of the same caller just to find that number to the pizza place again, it makes sense.

If you open Messaging, you can access the settings in the menu there to increase (or set to never delete) text message life.

Please let me know if you get stuck!
