Question about Samsung SCH-a870 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Ring tone can't be changed for text

I set my alert tone for silent or for one beep when receiving a text message and it will reset itself to a melody 1. this is a problem at work, especially when in meetings and our phones are supposed to be on silent. The ring tones work normally when alerting me for a call, but the text alerts do not change. When I change the text alert, it shows to be correctly changed, but as soon as a text comes through, it goes to melody 1 again. Please, help me as I am going crazy. Incidentally, this is my second samsung of this model as my previous one was replaced last Friday due to being defective. It had the same prob lem. I'm sure there is a way to fix this. Thanks in advance for your help.

How to change message tone on Samsung gt s 3653


Dear,

The msg alert tone depends on the current sound profile of your phone (like normal, silent, driving etc).
1. Go to main menu -> settings -> phone profiles. You should find all the profiles available in the phone. For example, we will change the msg alert tone for 'normal'.
2. Tap on the box with the double arrow (>>) symbol next to normal. You should enter a screen saying call alert type, voice call ringtone etc.
3. There is a drop down menu at the top right side of the screen. Tap that and select 'new messages'.
4. 'message alert type' should be melody or vibration & melody, depending on your preference.
5. now select 'message alert tone'. The phone has a number of tones already stored. Select one of these.
6. Or select 'sounds' at bottom right and browse to any file you want to set as message alert tone instead..
7. Save and exit !!

On normal nor silent profile no alert coming for incoming calls only


Try restoring the factory settings of your phone!

Go to : SETTINGS then FACTORY SETTINGS.. security code: just type 12345.

If still there is no tone alert, then im sure there is a problem with your phone's buzzer, or it might need to clean the contact of the buzzer insice the board. Just try this....

Kindly rate this up! thank you
