Hi,

You should try upgrading your phone's firmware.

SOURCE: Delete old messages text & voice?

When first turned on, select "messages." then down arrow to inbox or outbox. Select choice. For outbox, down arrow to SENT. Select. Hit the center button. scroll down twice to delete the one message. Scroll down once more to delete ALL messages from the sent outbox. Confirm and out they go!

Now, does anybody know how to email text messages so they can be saved?

Unless you are with a provider with a program such as "My Contacts Backup", they are probably gone. But don't lose hope until you take your phone into the store. They may be able to work some magic.

To remove ID's from your friends listright click username > delete gone, just like that... but by default, their entry still remains in your Yahoo! Address Book, unless during the Delete Contact confirmation screen you also select the option Delete from Address Book, too if you overlook this option and still wish to remove them from your address book, you can still do so (at any time) via your browser at Yahoo! Address Book

BT Aura 1500 Quad telephone - calls list freezing


BT gave me solution, which (so far) seems to work:
Reset the software of the telephone to default settings...
On any handset - 1. Press 'menu' 2. Scroll to 'settings' & press 'ok' 3. Scroll to 'base' & press 'ok' 4. Scroll to 'reset base' & press 'ok' 5. 'System PIN' will be displayed - enter '0000' (unless you have altered the default pin number) 6. Press 'ok' 7. Press 'yes' 8. Switch the main base station off at the power & remove the batteries from all handsets for approximately 30 minutes .
This didn't reset my address book (thank goodness) but did reset some other settings, such as time/date, OGM, group ringtones etc.

How do i save my phone contacts on my computer


For Windows:

- Open i-tunes on your computer that you sync it to
- Plug in your phone to the computer
- open "Address book" window's address book program. Its under start-programs-accessories
- Back to iTunes, click on the phone icon on the left
- Click on the Info, and under "Contacts" (the first one) check "sync contacts from" and then pick "Windows address book" or (Outlook) from the drop down menu
- Click all contacts
- Then at the bottom right of iTunes, click "Sync" It will ask you if you want to merge or replace. Make sure you select "MERGE" or it will delete your contacts on the phone.

You have to be careful what options you choose when syncing contacts. With Windows you can sync with Outlook, with the Mac you can sync with Address Book. Always choose merge so it doesn't wipe out your phones contacts.

If you want to upload for the first time from your computer to your phone, there is an option at the bottom of that page where you can replace what's on your phone with what's on your computer (in Outlook or Address Book). It's a one time option.

I highly recommend exporting your contacts from Address Book and backing it up on another drive, or emailing the file to yourself.

Samsung s8300 how do i speed dial using keyboard


Hi, I found a way to get Speed Dial on the Eternity or Ultra Touch . As follows: [most of this from Phonebook/More/Settings/1 ]

1. Copy all address book entries from Sim to Phone Memory.
2. Delete all Sim Address book entries.
3. Switch Address book source to Sim.
3. Re-enter up to 99 speed dial entries in Sim, in the exact order you want them to be assigned to speed dial.
4. Switch Address book source back to Phone Memory.
From now on all numbers on the Sim will be in Speed Dial and you will view the address book from phone memory. Of course any number can be in both places.
Now to speed dial just enter 1#, 2# etc for any number in the Sim Address book. You will get to view and confirm the entry and then dial. In a way this is even better then the speed dial functions on older Samsungs, as the preview before dialing ensures you have the right speed dial entry.
I think it works fine. dk
