Question about Samsung SCH-a870 Cellular Phone

3 Answers


I have tried and tried to get this feature working since I bought the phone. It says in the manual just press and hold number 1 to set it up.I tried that and all I get is a message that says my password is invalid. I have tried resetting the phone to factory settings, entering the last 4 digits of my phone number, just about everything I can think of, nothing works. I am out of town and can't find a Cellular office. Can you help me fix this??

How to send an audio file thru text messaging . when I attempt,It says "try recording audio in mms mode"? Or something like that. Please help.

mms mode is the standard way to send messages on phones (not all cell phones are naturally capable to send and receive voice messages).

for cell phones...

capable: read the user's manual of your cell phone model, this feature must be inside the messages application.

not capable: to send voice message you need to use a program which can code/decode that type of information (for example: "whatsapp") *note: the sender and the receiver must have the same platform program to establish the connection.

How do I fix my talk to text feature?

The "Cannot Connect" message indicates that your device is not able to access the internet, either through your cellular service provider (ie. Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, etc.) or through a Wi-Fi router if you happened to be connected to one. You must have a data plan in order to gain access through your provider. Also check the settings on your phone to make sure you are connecting to a Wi-Fi if you happen to have access to one at home or work place.
