Re: keypad wont work

You need to do a master reset of the phone to set it back to the first time you purchased the phone.
That should correct the issue, if that does not help then have the keyboard an dnot the keypad replaced from any mobile service center or professional mobile technician

How to lock or unlock a Samsung Intensity

Many people like the Samsung Intensity because of its slide-out QWERTY keyboard. However, one drawback to the phone for some users is that, unlike a flip phone, the numeric keypad is always exposed. When the Intensity is kept in a pocket or purse, this can result in accidental phone calls, multiple all-black pictures, and sudden activation of the voice command feature.

Luckily, you can lock the phone's keypad to keep it from engaging any functions when you're not using it. Locking the keypad is easy. Just hold down the 0 (zero) button for about two seconds, and a message will pop up telling you that the keypad has been locked. While it's locked, you won't be able to use the numeric keypad.

The standard way to unlock the phone is to press the upper right options button (the one that you would typically press to bring up your Contacts list) and then press the center OK button. (You will see prompts for both of these buttons when the phone is locked.)

However, there is also a quicker way to unlock the phone -- just slide the keyboard open. Sliding the keyboard open will unlock your numeric keypad immediately, and even when you close the keyboard the phone will remain unlocked. If you want to lock it again, you'll have to hold down the zero button to re-lock it.

You can also enable Auto Key Lock mode, in case you think you'll forget to lock your phone. With Auto Key Lock mode turned on, your phone will automatically lock itself when it's not in use and the backlight goes off. You can turn Auto Key Lock mode on or off from the Phone Settings menu.

Take your phone to your local market & ask any market phone repair vendor to fit a new keepad membrane, if this doesn't work it's trobably irriparable damage either caused by water or the fumes of some kind of solvent for example super glue.

Keypad troubleshooting

when I open my phone it seems to be stuck on the right arrow button so it goes to "IM account". I was really confused this morning because even if I click exit, it goes back to the same thing on its own. when I get a chance to press menu, it just whirls around as if I'm pressing the arrow over to choose a category but I'm not.. its weird.. probably the weirdest phone I've ever had
