What button to dial voicemail.

There is no "button" to dial the voicemail. (you didn't read manual).
You access your voicemail by dialing YOUR OWN CELL NUMBER.
(find it here): Menu / Settings / Phone info / Build info / YOUR #.
(copy it down)

If your cell # is: 101-555-1234, DIAL: 1015551234 / hit green phone.
Just follow all the voice prompts to set up your greeting message,
access & delete voicemail messages, etc..

Place it in double parenthesis, just like this: "VOICEMAIL"
When you open phone and hit the contacts button, it will ALWAYS
be the very FIRST contact in your list of contacts. DARN HANDY!!

How can i make a call from skype

First time you call a phone number:

Click the Call phones tab.
In the main window, you will see a key pad, calling rates to all countries, and a Buy Skype Credit button.

In the main window, click on the flag menu and change the country if you're calling abroad.
Then click in the box beside the flag. Type the phone number or click numbers on the keypad.

Check you've got the number right.
Then click the green Call button.

If you'll call this number regularly, click the Save button under the dialpad.
Next time, just find it in your Contacts so you don't have to type it in again.
If you've saved the number in your Contacts:

Click the Contacts button at the top of Skype.

In your Contact list, find the person you want to call.
Then click on them.

In the main window, click the green Call button.
Useful things you can do on a call:

  • Mute - click this icon mute_16x16_white.png to mute your microphone so the other person can't hear you.
  • Hold - click on this icon hold_16x16_white.png to put the call on hold.
  • Send an SMS - if you're calling a cell phone, click the SMS button under the dialpad to send an SMS instead.

How to reach a live person: Press 0 as soon as you hear "Alex", and keep pressing 0 for each request made for more information.

When you reach a service representative, request assistance with your voice mail set up.

I can't delete people from my contact list I have a i776 phone

To delete a contact, just go into your contact list and highlight the contact that you wish to delete. Press the button directly above the green send button and scroll down to "Delete Contact". Press the OK button and follow the prompt if there is one after that.

Hope that helps.

There seems to be no option to activate speed dial. I have read the user manual and would like to think I'm not this stupid. Also it seems that I can only have 5 ring tones AND I can only use them for the...

To get a form of speed dial and caller ID to work, ones must have all contacts entered into the phones storage AND sim storage. Order of contact entry is in direct relation to the "speed dial" numbers. Then on phones menu screen, hit DIAL, and then a 1-3 digit number followed by the # sign. Another screen will come up with contact name and phone number that resides at the number you entered. There will be two pictures of phone receivers numbered 1&2. Push which ever one for the sims you have activated and your call will be made. It is almost just as easy to simply remember the number for the person who is so important to call so quickly. For caller ID-contacts in both phone and sim storage AND the number MUST BE ENTIRE #. This means area code, international code, etc. No solution for the lack of ringtones that can be USED at a time. Possibly if one can delete out set tones by accessing the phones engeneering or factory mode by entering in the required codes, the lame tones could be replaced by your desired ones. All info from

My blackberry will not allow me to perform any functions

Check to see if the phone is on Line 1 or Line 2...

- Hit the green button (send button)
- Your recent call log will be listed
- At the top of the screen it should say line 1 or line 2 then the phone number that is associated with the line
- If it is not the correct line then scroll up to highlight it and click your track ball to change it

... If this does not work then you need to contact your service provider to see what it going on with your phone :o)

Cell phone silence

This problem seems to be related to the contacts list - makes no sense but in my Son's Env phone if he removes one of his contacts it fixes it! it seems that it only happens when someone in your contact list calls or you call them. Weird...then it will happen again and same thing fixes it.
