Question about Samsung SGH-A877 Impression Cell Phone

1 Answer

Is it possible to do a hard reset on a Samsung Impression? When typing a message the letters don't show up until you hit the next one. I can lock the screen with the button but I can't unlock it with the button. The screen used to lock automatically after x seconds but now doesn't lock on its on at all. It has a lot of little glitches like that. Someone suggested a hard reset.

Tip

Samsung Impression


I have had the Samsung Impression, for about 6 months now. With-in the first month i returned it for the same type because i had to turn it off the phone several times, because it failed to send texts. I didn't have problems after that until about 4 months later. I don't like this phone and I wish for a new one. I now have to turn it off about 4 times a day because, again, it fails to send text messages or takes a long time. Also the touch is off, for example: I will touch the call button but instead hit the ' * ' button. I have reset the touch screen but it constantly has the same problems. I have a 2 year contract with this phone, so unfortunately I have a long time with this phone still. :/ If you have this phone, good luck!

How to rest samsung impression


You may have material on your Samsung Impression mobile phone that you don't want unauthorized people to see. For example, you may want to keep confidential the names of people you call and who call you, the content of text messages, or pictures that you've taken with the camera's phone. You can protect your privacy by setting a phone lock code. It's a good idea to periodically change the lock code for added security. You can easily reset your Samsung Impression's lock code. 1. Touch the menu icon on the touch-sensitive screen of your Samsung Impression phone. 2. Touch Settings.
3. Touch Phone.
4. Touch Security.
5. Touch Change Phone Password.
6. Enter your current phone password, and then touch "OK." 7. Enter your new password, and then touch "OK." Your new password can be four to eight digits long. 8. Enter the new password once more to confirm, and then touch "OK."
I hope you find it very helpful.
Please rate me if you find it very helpful.

Thank you.

I need an unlock code for a samsung impression i had att butnow i have t mobile


Hey welcome to fixya, i hope u 'll be fine. to unlock your cell try this solution

First do a CUSTOM reset: *2767*2878#
turn off the phone
Now Take out the battery and sim and put wrong network SIM and insert only a half of it,
Very important so it won't ask for network password and shows "Insert SIM" message.(possibly in a different language)
Now put the battery again,and switch the phone on .(phone 'll show "Insert SIM" message.)
Push the sim fully in at this stage the phone is still asking to "Insert SIM"
NowMake a FULL reset: *2767*3855#
The phone should reboot working with wrong sim inside.
Make a Change the password to 8 zeros by typing: *7465625*638*00000000*00000000#
Now Disable network lock By typing: #7465625*638*00000000#
Phone is unlocked


Note : Please keep back up of your files before unlocking
This will also bring the phone to default settings

You can also try another solution from here

A hard reset will clear everything out of the phone and reset your password. To perform a hard reset on a samsung take out the battery and removve the sim card and power on the phone. when it comes back on type in *2767*3855#. The phone will go thourgh a reset process and when it comes back on take the battery out again and put your sim card back in and power on. It should be completely cleared including the security password.
