    sorry still upset, I was paying $2.00 a month for back up, however when i purchased the plan sales rep told me it was registered. However I was not. Bought a new phone. Old phone is a Samsung SGH a437. numbers stored on phone not sim card. i need to power up the samsung to extract numbers. DO not want a factory reset as this would delete numbers.

You need to be more specific in the problem, I need to know what phone you have and what service or carrier you have. If you Verizon, they have a program called back-up assistant that will transfer your contacts over the airwaves to another phone you get. Your contacts are tied to your phone number so it may not be necessary to have your present phone powered up. Also depending on the phone you have and carrier, your contacts may be carried internally on a SIM card which is removable and can be transferred to another phone that uses SIM card technology so you won't lose any settings, music, pictures, contacts...etc. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair

    Been there...done that....I have Verizon so they keep numbers on their
    data base...I lose stuff too easy. OK, if you are getting it to power
    on somewhat, try to hook it up to the charger so it is not relying
    solely on a battery that may not be delivering enough volts even if it
    is saying it is full, you need to have a steady and reliable power
    supply. Once that is done, try putting in *228 and hit send...I need to see if this triggers a phone program update, if ir does listen to the prompts if any and hit (1), wait for it to program and then hang up. If it doesn't get to that point, you may have better luck explaining your position to them and maybe they can get the phone registered and powered up long enough to make a backup for you. I hacker told me that there may be an issue with these things overheating and causing the freezing and shutdown. He suggested wrapping the phone in multiple layers of papertowels and placing the phone in a tupperware bowl and pushing the lid on getting as much air out as you can and leaving it in there for an hour and trying to power it up after that to see how long it will stay powered up. Whatever the case, that number has to be registered with the service so they can tie the contacts to it. Do not just go by what one guy says...ask around in the service areas and I bet you get different opinions from whoever you ask. Some people are smarter and more street wise in these fixes. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair

Me screen will not function, it is visible on the phone, but is locked up and none of the touch features work. When I slide to unlock, nothing happens. I am receiving phone calls and texts but cannot...

Your phone is frozen, you need to hold the power and the home button together for at least 20 seconds. The phone it´s going to reset then it´s going to show the apple logo and then turn off. Then press the power button for 3 seconds and wait for the phone to restart.

When i put cherger its power up other wise nothing happend, pls help me


Normally this would indicate a problem with the battery or faulty/loose connection with the elements that connect the battery to the rest of the phone.

When you plug the charger in, the phone will use that as it's source of power & bypass the battery to function. When it's turned on does the battery charging indicator light up at all?

Try a different battery (some mobile phone shops will have a few spare or at least one compatible to test it out). If that works, you know what your problem is. If that doesn't work, unfortunately it's probably something wrong with the phone's hardware. If it's under warranty, contact Samsung & they can do a repair.

Hope this helps :)
