Re: Cingular wireless phone

Your screen may have burned out, or the wires connecting the screen to the phone may be damaged.

Does the phone display regular pictures during bootup? If so you might be able to reflash the phone and write over whatever problem is causing it. If the phone goes white even when you first turn it on then I'd say it's very likely the actual hardware is damaged.

Try your settings again. Profile Name = MMS Homepage URL = Proxy - Check this box IP address = (fill this in) Port = 8080 Linger Time = 90 DNS - Uncheck this box DNS 1 = blank because unchecked above DNS 2 = blank because unchecked above Bearer = GPRS Advanced Settings - Check this box APN = wap.cingular Login ID = WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM Password = CINGULAR1 Save the Advanced Settings Save again Profile Restart Phone Go back to Mesages, MMS settings, MMS Profile and select it, the under options Activate Try to send a pic text / MMS message It could be a password issue if you set up a wireless window on the cingular/att website, not your account password, but the one for the wireless window...rather than CINGULAR1 it could be that password or could be the last 4 digits of your wireless number. If that still doesn't work - contact tech support at 888-892-9760 and make sure it is tech and not a regular agent and have them go through your password and other settings from their end and to make sure everything is enabled

My htc 8525 screen keeps going white & i cant return it or anything because i bought it from a friend back in october . all of a sudden the screen starts to go white & this never happened before. i can...

9 times out of 10, this means that the rigid flex cable has gone bad - this is the cable that goes from the thicker part of the case (the part the battery is in) to the thinner part, which houses the LCD. If you're handy, you can purchase tools kits and replcaement cables on Ebay...but if you're not, there are also SERVICES on ebay which will do this for a fee.

8525 phone

Have you attempted to remove the battery and then put it back into the device after a full minute? Some times that can help reset the phone and then it will work properly.

If not--has your phone come near to water? Check your battery spot to see if it has or not. That might also do the same thing to your phone.

Let us know how that works out for you. We wish you good luck!

In the future, whenever you spill liquid on something electonic, unplug it immediately. If there was no electricity going through it at the time, you can usually let it dry for a day or two, and it should still work.

Cingular 8525 - white screen

I believe I've figured out what caused my white screen problem. I finally broke down and purchased a nice holster for my 8525. It had a magnetic catch to keep it closed. Within a couple of days I experienced my first white screen. I thought that was pretty wierd, but thought it must just need to be re-booted. Later that night the same thing happened. Throughout the weekend it happened many more times. I got on the internet to see if anyone else was having the same problem...OMG. In site after site the same thing; my 8525 has developed a white screen. I came across one where the writer mentioned that he had just purchased a case with a magnetic closure. I took mine out of the case I'd just purchased, changed the battery, and turned it back on. I have not had a white screen since. I'm back to a velcro closure forever! Good luck.
