Posted by on

  • duanwalker May 11, 2010

    if the contacts were saved onto a sim card or memory stick the contact info still remains. however if the phone held contact info on the flash memory inside the phone itself, unfortunately, after a master reset all data is erased and set back to factory defaults.

Only way to get them back in this case is if you had backed them up to the SIM card. Some phones do this automatically. Get your phone manual out and read on how to access the SIM contacts.

My doro phone keeps turning off after 20 or 30mins and I have to Press the red button to power it back on, Any advice

Hi -- I think that I have your answer. First, back up your contacts to the SIM Card, then do a master reset of your phone (settings, security, master reset). When you power back on, your contacts will be restored to your phone. If you haven't changed passwords, the default is 1234. As well you will have to change settings to what you had before the reset. I hope this helps, it helped me.

My phone keeps calling random ppl from my contacts, it cuts calls off by calling the person im speaking to, sends blank txts then locks the keyoard so i cant type txts, voice command starts by itself then...

You could try backing everything up and doing a master reset, but back everything up first (its so important I said it twice). to do master reset just dial *#7370# and accept. after the master reset you can restore your files by restoring it from the back up.

I had a PIN code years ago and now I dont know it and I cant use my phone

the phone will have to go through master reset.
Try this:

Samsung Master Reset:
CAUTION: A "master reset" changes the phone settings back to default. This process will erase all contacts, downloaded settings, and downloaded applications (ringtones, wallpapers, graphics, etc). This process cannot be undone.

Enter *2767*3855# from the standby screen.

How to master reset n73

You can master reset the phone type *#7370# and you will be required to type the passcode if you have not changed the default passcode. Tthe default passcode is "12345" after typing the passcode your phone will restart. Note: your contacts and other info will be deleted. However, you can back up all that using the PC suite.

If this method fails, contact your service provider and ask to speak with Tech Support. They may need additional information about your phone to provide the Master reset code for you.

Problem With Contacts List

Hi There, You can possible try a master reset and see if this will solve your problem.If this doesn't work you can try a master clear. The master clear would erase your pictures and downloaded or bluetoothed music.The master reset will not. SAM !

Razr Master Reset

from non expert here but I'd say that a master reset not only removes contacts but you have to get serial id's etc out of the back of the handset and call your service provider to reprogram the handset fon number and other details back into your fon. just a first guess but i didn't see any one else answering so i thought i'd throw that one by ya! (No Extra Charge) lol.
