Question about Samsung SGH-E870 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Samsung E870 has no reception!

The phone was working properly for almost a year and then I brought it overseas with me to Asia where it continued to work. After I came back home, it couldn't pick up any reception at all. It doesn't show any bars, I can't call out or text anyone and the same for incoming calls/texts. I've already tried using other sim cards in this phone, the same thing occurs. My sim card works in other phones so it's not my service provider's problem. I tried manually switching networks but it still doesn't seem to pick up any signals. I tried resetting my phone, and it still doesn't work. Is there any suggestions on how I can get my phone to work again?! Thank you!!

    I tried changing my network selection but there isn't an option that allows me to manually select which band to go on.

I cant install any games on my sgh-e870 samsung phone, it says it doesnt support the format

you have java enabled phone mate you can download tons of game for your mobile avalable on papular site like
your phone supports .jar extension types application.
that means application name should end with .jar
for example asphalt.jar
you must download game through your mobile because in some samsung phone they need to install through online.
your phone screen resolution is 176 x 220.
search java game for 176 x 220 resolution.
