Searching SVC I dropped my phone and the battery popped off and a little snow got on the back of the phone. It turns on and everything works except that on the top it says searching SVC and there is not clock. Is there a way to get my service to get working again? Its been about two days and I don't want to have to use my insurance to get a new phone...

I recently bought the Samsung Alias and when I activated it and I turned it on it said searching svc. What turned it off and on, I took the battery out. I dont know what to do.

hi kimberlydsal take the battery out of the phone again . Now phut the battery back in it will say searching for dervice. Ok next you have to let the phone find the service. It is looking for the network. You can do a hard reset in your phone. od yout can get the network to come up. Go in to the phone's settings and tools. gp down to phone go into the my number and it will tell you yout phone number. you need the last four digits for the security code. Next you will to go to security and put in the security code. it will give you an option to restore the phone. Next you can do the activation for your phone. it should now be able to find the service network . ok hope this helps you with your problem,

My center button does not work when pressed. How

Try putting the phone in a bag of rice for 24 hours. It's a popular fix for water-damaged electronics. If that doesn't work turn the phone off and take the battery out. Then use a Q-tip to drip a few drops of alcohol on the button, and put your mouth right on the button and blow into it. I did that once with an iPod.

When I plug my charger in there are no bars going up and down on the display showing that it is charging. This is after I accidently plugged in the wrong charger and heard a pop. The phone shut off after...

I would suggest just using the phone until you wear the battery down and then put it back on the charger and charge it up over night and see if it charges. If that works then probably the pop you heard was the part of the display that shows the bars going up blowing out but at least the phone will work for you.

You can replace the lcd screen and digitizer.

Its about $40 US on ebay. Try searching treo 750wx screen/digitizer/touch screen, etc. Also i tried searching treo 750wx but it didn't work, I suspect the 750 to be the same as the wx, but you might wanna make sure with the seller incase (Ask seller a question link is on the listing, or click their username and go to their profile and click on contact)
