Question about Samsung C417 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Phone powers down

My phone cuts out and powers down during calls. The backlight is the first sign that I am going to lose connect. AT&T said that the phone must be turned off periodically to allow updated information to be added when the phone turns back on. I have not heard about anything like this in a while. She compared it to a computer that says you must power down to receive updated information, when in fact new computers simply tell you to go to their site and download the updated information. Please give the scoop as I am tired of getting the run around.

My sony ericsson zylo. when someone calls me they can hear me but i can't hear them, please help

1. try to switch on the loudspeaker or connect a headset. in case you can hear your partner this way there must be a hardware problem with the phone's smaller speaker. Often as a result of firmly hitting (dropping) the phone.

2. make a test call and try to change the volume during the call. (However, I don't think it can be a problem since power off/on cycle resets the volume to a default value)

My incoming calls are going straight to voicemail


I think it's mostly due to the following: phone is off, lose of connection, bad reception area, network is down. But if none of these are going with your phone then try this. Go to your phone settings> phone or network (depending on menu) and disable 'call forwarding'. It may be set to go to your vm automatically with no delay (0 seconds waiting time). I hope these suggestions work. Regards

Lg km900 blank screen during an incoming call -

There is a little rectangle shape thing next to the lg logo on the top of the fone screen. If this is blocked by screen protector it will cause the phone to blank of during calls. Its a power saver that blanks the phone when its near your face. Try it. Take off the screen protector & make a call. Then place your finger over the little thing & the screen goes blank. Just cut a lil space in the screen protector & that will fix the problem

My iphone's scree doesn't work anymore, even the

Try a reset. Hold down the power key at the same time as the round home key until
phone powers down. Release buttons only when you see the apple logo,
then wait a min or two for phone to re-boot. You will not lose any data on the phone.

If this does not work, try an actual system reset. Sync iPhone to computer to back
up essential data ie contacts apps etc, then go to settings general and reset. Reset
all settings as a last resort. This will give you a fresh start and should sort out
the majority of any bugs the phone has. A resync with you computer will restore apps etc.

Hope this helps and if so please vote.

The wired keyboard backlight turnes off too quickly

You would need to go into the Setting Menu and find the Backlight or Power setting to lengthen the display and keypad backlight times. Just know that your battery life will decrease the higher the settings especially since it is a VGA screen.
