SOURCE: My phone won't send/receive calls

I had the same problem today - phone was working fine and then started with the cdma network not available. I turned the phone off, removed the battery, put it back in and turned the phone back on. It seems to be working OK now. This battery has had some issues anyway so I'm thinking it needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: my chocolate only flashes to the verizon wireless screen

You need a new battery. The battery is either old or gotten Hot, Or has just been charged from Improper voltage. A new battery is needed. It cost around $50.00 although I wouldnt recommend getting a LG Chocolate since it seems to have bad reviews by other users who have had problems with it.

Why does my Samsung Gusto 3 cut on and off all day?

Problem: Samsung Gusto 3 Flip Phone turns off and on many times during same session

Return for Replacement Suggestion(s):

This is NOT a Samsung known issue because most units work fine. Therefore, it may be either:
(A) a hardware issue in which the phone needs to be taken back to your service provider whom you got it from to be replaced/serviced, OR
(B) it could be a software or battery issue in which you can fix yourself.

* If you don't feel comfortable trying to troubleshoot this problem yourself, OR if after trying to troubleshoot the problem you deem this a hardware issue (that you can not fix yourself):


(A) What store you bought it from and their policy to return the phone. If you activated it, and have been using it for some time, returning it to the store may not be an option.. Call them to find out if they can help you with the issue

(B) What carrier phone service provides for this phone? If Verizon, take it to your local Verizon retail store (note: do not take it to a Verizon corporate store, they concentrate on sales and not customer service)

The store representative you bring the phone to will need to see this issue happening or you will have to replicate the problem in front of them, to prove that there is a problem and so that they can help you solve the issue or provide you with a replacement.

Things to bring:
Phone, charged battery, charging wall adapter, charging cable, original purchase receipt, original box with everything that came with it

A master reset is the last resort for troubleshooting. This reset erases all data and restore preferences to factory default specifications. Performing a master reset is only recommended when the existing data has been backed up or is unwanted.

From the main screen, press OK.

Select Settings then press OK.

Select Phone then press OK.

Select Security then press OK.

Enter the Code.
The default code is the last 4-digits of the mobile number.

Select Restore Phone then press OK.

Select Yes then press OK.

Press OK.

Enter the Code.
The default code is the last 4 digits of the mobile number.

Bluetooth Problem

Radios get old, the components age, and the radio needs to be re-tuned. It is probably working only at very close range, due to the reduced power from age. The BT radio was not designed to be tuned up. You may need to get a new phone to regain that functionality.

Try putting the BT device very close to the phone, see if that works.

When I turn on my phone Verizon Wireless logo pops up and stays

Try taking it to a Verizon Wireless store for troubleshooting. This problem appears to be more than just the battery, as fully charging it did not help.

Well, I have the chocolate as well. This happened to me when i fell with my phone in my hand. Well there is no immediate solution for the problem. Go to the nearest Verizon Wireless store, or call them up and they will ship you a new one. Hope I helped.

FSK Voicemail Indicator not working

When you press the voicemail button on your phone it is retrieving messages stored internally in your phone. Verizons Voicemail is a seperate entity where the message reside on the server. If you do not want to use the Verizon Voicemail, simply call the business office and ask them to remove voicemail completely from the account. That way your phones internal answerming machine whille then catch all the voicemails and you can go back to using your voicemail button to listen to them. Hope that helps you and everyone else out.

If your service provider is Verizon Wireless, then dial *228 and press send. This will start activation, so when you hear the woman's voice (it's an automated message) choose option 1. The call will run for about 1-2 minutes. When it's finished the phone will beep and tell you programming is complete, so just press OK which reboots the phone.

This process, which only works on LG phones, resets the lock code to the last four digits of your phone number.
