Question about Cell Phones

Please help troubleshoot unlocked Samsung E250...

I recently purchased a Samsung E250 from Ebay...the phone is unlocked and supports my network(AT&T) just fine...my problem is when I go to make a phone call it shows the "call in progress" on the screen but it never connects and I cannot hear it ringing...also, if someone tries to call me it goes straight to my voicemail even though my phone is turned on with good signal strength. Is there something wrong with the handset or is it a setting I am missing??

Please help...thank you!!

    Yes...while on standby the phone is connected & it does have my network name on the screen.

  • ash_215 Feb 01, 2008

    When I enter the code into the phone it says "Network lock prerequisite"..???...anything else I could do??

  • ash_215 Feb 01, 2008

    I did buy it unlocked and No I cannot send or receive SMS messages.

  • ash_215 Feb 02, 2008

    That did not do anything either :( It is frustrating because it shows a "call in progress" on the screen but I hear absolutely nothing coming from the handset and the call never really goes through...if you have any other suggestions please keep them coming...Thank you...double thank you if someone can actually fix it :)

    let me make one thing clear it is not easy to solve this problem most of my frendz had the same problem what they did is they went to the above site and payed $30 and got it fixed..

    My suggestion is go to the below site and first have a live chat with them telling them that u cant send or recieve messages or calls or whatever ur problem is.And ask them if they will solve ur problem.
    If they agree to solve it thn pay $30 and do it..

    Goodluck,

    You said you bought your phone unlocked no?

    Are you able to receive SMS messages?

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Feb 01, 2008

    Since you say that your phone is unlocked...there is a chance that your phone could have been blacklisted with your network operator. I suggest you contact the EBAY seller and ask for your money back.

    Did you make sure that there is nothing wrong with your sim card?

Samsung e250


If your IMEI number is showing as all 0s then the IMEI number needs to be rebuilt by a Samsung approved engineer, and this would also be a chargeable repair. You can do this by contacting SFC Technical Support: 08456 726 7864. Alternatively you can see if there is a service centre in your area via our Service Centre Locator at http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/servicelocations/ServiceLocationsMain.do.
If taking your phone in to a service centre please take it along with a copy of your proof of purchase. Please also telephone the service centre before you take the phone into them and we would also recommend (if possible) that you back up any important data on the phone in case that's lost due to the nature of the repair.
