Question about Samsung SCH-u740 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

My samsung alias just stopped making and receiving calls and it won't let me receive or send text messages. I've used it all day without a problem, it wasn't until about a half hour ago when i received a text message and went to send one back but couldn't, that I realized something was wrong. Everything else is working with the phone, no matter which way it is flipped. I tried shutting it off and taking the battery out but it still isn't working. Any advice?

Try reprogramming it back onto the network by pressing *228 and selecting option two. If it doesn't make a phone call at all, check around with friends in the area to see if they're having a simliar issue. If not, then call Verizon and they'll walk you through troubleshooting the phone.
It sounds like the transiever in the phone may be burnt out, so if troubleshooting doesnt help, then you'll need a service center. Visit verizonwireless.com for repair centers, and then call to confirm they'll repair the phone onsite rather than sending it out.

Samsung GT-E1150i can't send text messages


I was told to remove the battery and SIM card, wait three minutes then power up the phone again. (Time and Date have to be reset) Unfortunately this did not solve the problem so it could be a Vodafone network problem. I am wary of trying the SIM in a different brand or model of phone in case of an unexpected reformat occurring, so until a duplicate phone arrives the job is on hold. In general one just cannot get the right staff these days. Take care!

My nokia E63 won't send text messages. It will receive them, make calls and receive calls.


First check all the message setting i.e 1.Center number should start with prefix +........Character support it should be "Full" and the "Message sent as" should be "Text".If all these settings are correct the only way to solve is to contact / call the particular customer care.Good luck.

Can't send pics via text or email - can send messages but can't send/receive pics and I do pay for multimedia! other phone on same plan works fine.


Sometimes if you are out of memory on your phone multimedia texts don't come through.

Also, you should call the carrier and make sure they have receiving enabled. Mine got disabled without my knowing and I called to check and they switched it back on.
