I am assuming that you have the data cable to connect your phone to the PC . Did you get drivers and software with the cable (where did you buy the data cable?)? If not, you can try this free software that might work with your phone and here is a link to software that definitely works but it's not free.

I plug my samsung link into the charger and the phone says the battery is not connected.

Make sure there's nothing on the connections of the battery or where the phone connects to it (i.e. open your phone and check the battery and phone connections to verify they're shiny) and make sure the charger connections are free of debris (this is more difficult and may require a burst of compressed air or a good blow)

How do I activate my samsung phone with Cricket's service if *228 isn't working, I'm unable to reach customer service and Cricket stores closest to me are closed?

You will hafta wait till they open tomorow, the only way to activiate a phone is via their phone # or in store. I looked pretty hard for an online activation page but there dosent seem to be any, you could try 8009225159 from another phone as well.

Samsung sph a740 with bell canada: can't send texts or store new numbers

I had the same problem when I went to send a text. Phone would lock then power cycle. Did manage to fix it though. In the menu go to settings, then security. It will ask you for your security code. If you know it put it in if you don't know it should be the last four digits of your phone # or possibly 0000. once in go to reset phone navigate to yes twice and it should reset after a minute and power cycle. You will not lose your contacts, pictures or schedules. You will have to reprogram your personal settings. like display and ringers.

Phone got wet and now unable to power on.

Most likely the water renered it useless for a while. Try drying it out more, DO NOT HEAT IT, or spray it at all. If you have a techy friend who would give it a shot, they could open up the phone and try cleaning away the corrosion that that water damage caused with contact spray or rubbing alchohol and a soft bristle toothbursh.
