    My upstage is not turning on at all. I turned it off and when i tried to turn it back on, it did not work. I have tried charging it (which isnt working) and connecting the battery case also. Nothing is making my phone turn on, and i need it in 10 mins!!!

    Phone is fully charged and won't turn on. When plugged into charger, beeps like it's going to charge but then turns off.

  • hwood310 Oct 17, 2008

    my phone just died yesterday and it's been doing the same thing. it only works in the portable charger, and when it's plugged in to the wall charger it will only say "samsung" and not turn on. I got it to turned on while in the wall charger last night but it died again for no reason and this morning it wouldn't work. The reset button got it turned back on- for about one minute. now it's back to reading "samsung" and occasionally "charging" but won't turn on. when i did get it to turn on last night i noticed my text inbox, outbox, and drafts had all gone to zero.. this was before the reset button was used so i don't know WHAT is going on..

  • Kudoyoung Nov 28, 2008

    Yep. My calls were not going through not due to lack of coverage but for other weird matters. I shut off my phone and the "SAMSUNG" Logo stayed on the screen as well. Now it will not turn back on. I have been trying to use the reset button but nothing really happens. I know the battery is good i charged it recently. I try again in the mourning.

    The phone is a piece of ****. I've gone through an upstage already cause of minor problems, but this one is the worse yet. I didn't even drop the thing, it just decided to not work anymore! I tried the reset button, didn't work. Plugged it to the charger, beeps, charges...45 sec later...it takes itself off and proceeds to shut down, and few seconds later turns back on. Now it's been going through this cycle for hours. If I take it off the charger it'll stay on for those little seconds then shut off completely. I know this phone is fully charged cause I charged it this morning. My solution: Get rid of it asap. Going to the sprint store tomorrow, and I am not getting another refurbished cause that's only solving the problem until the next one crash and burns.

  • ATCQFan Jan 07, 2009

    The only time it works is when it is charging and even then it does noy fully work, no calls go out, and if i leave it on it turn off by itself. Please help.

Happened to me today, after i turned off the phone the word "SAMSUNG" stuck on the screen, then when finally turned off. i couldnt turn on afterward. So I tried the solution by press and hold the reset button for few secs, then release it. The reset button is on the side. Then it worked. hope it works for you guys.

You don't necessarily need to use a needle, you could use a toothpick.

I tried the reset button a few times with my phone plugged in with the charger and the back up battery thing. it didn't work at first but when i took the thing off and unplugged the charger, and i used the toothpick to hold the reset button in for about 5 seconds, it worked!

    Oh, and if you do try the reset button, it won't erase any of your things. just a by the way, because I got scared when i tried.

Holding the reset button in any fashion did not work for me. ( or least i dont think it did) I just had my phone on the charger for about a day, then it eventually turned on.

Posted on Dec 04, 2008

Yea last nite reset button wouldnt work. But this morning I held it in for like 20 seconds and then hit the power button. and Bam. Working again..other than that if we really want to vent about the UPstage- the KEYGUARD or CHARGER try finding them in the dark.

Posted on Aug 07, 2008

I have the EXACT same problems. It won't even charge any more unless I actually HOLD onto the **** charger cable. Its pissing me off. I absolutely HATE this phone. Its worthless and is a piece of ****. I've had way too many problems with it. Sprint seriously needs to step up and help people out with it. I'm going to shut it off and use my mums old one.That way I at least know I can use something during the day. Sheesh.

Posted on Jun 24, 2008

Same thing happened to mine because i squeezed it too hard. i hit the reset button... didnt work

Posted on May 02, 2008

I have been trying these solutions for about an hour because im broke and have no time to go get this phone fixed this week but also REALLY needed the phone. I had been using a pen to press in the reset button on the phone and I thought that it was actually pressing it in. I decided to try the needle thing though just in case b/c again i was that desperate. I thought the pen was pressing it until I used the needle and realized the pen didnt reach. When I used the needle it worked!!

So use a NEEDLE to press in the reset button for about 5-10 second and release. Then power your phone up just like normal and it should turn on. I really hope this helped because I know how frustrated I was!

Posted on Apr 30, 2008

I have just been trying these solutions for about an hour except i was using the tip of a pen. I THOUGHT the button was being pressed because it felt like it was. But I figured I would try the needle solution that was suggested (use a needle to press in the reset button) and it actually worked!

So use a NEEDLE to press in the reset button for a few second (i counted to 10) release it and then try to power up your phone again.

Hope this helped. I know i was about to tear my hair out if I couldn't fix it

Yea i don't know why i chose this crappy *** phone its a piece of ****. Hopefully you guys found a solution. I really don't want to get a refurbished one, when i had one it didn't even work..

Posted on Apr 09, 2008

This phone is a piece of crap that totally freaks out over the course of it's life and eventually starts to die. The battery connections in the phone are coming apart, maybe from dropping it, or from just regualr use. It's on it's way out.

Good luck getting sprint to do anything about it, they'll just offer you a useless discount on another phone, and samsung will just send you a "re-furbished" one that is as shitty as the new on you have.

i HATE this phone.

Hello, I hope this solution works for you guys.

My phone hasn't worked for five days. Until today January 11, 2009 when I had no other choice but to try to fix it again.

  1. I put my charger into my phone and it turned on automatically(for me, the charger is the only way the phone came on)
  2. I pressed filp button to make sure it was on the small lcd side.
  3. I put a pin into the side of the phone and held it there until it turned of by itself.
  4. As soon as it turned off and went to Samsung loading sign, i took the charger out.
Now every since that it has stayed on by itself.

I hope this helps, I too am frustrated with this phone because the battery life is going back and forth, one second its full the next it's only 1 bar.

Thanks for reading.

I had the same problem. The phone wouldn't turn back on after I turned it off. There is a hole on the side that says "Reset". Use a needle, push the button in the hole for like 5 seconds. Then hold down the On button and it should turn on.

Can't turn on samsung m620


Hi there,
have you ever figured out what happened???
the same thing happened to me over the weekend and it's annoying that there's no information at all about anything.
I can't figure out what's wrong and your description is EXACTLY what happened to me. One moment everything was great - the next it's dead.
Please let me know if you figured it out somehow ??? Thanks

Samsung upstage wont turn on period. It is dead


I just had to buy a new phone because my Upstage had the same problem! But mine would stay on for not even 5 seconds before turning off and it would just repeat. So I went into the Sprint store and they gave me the Samsung Rant for 50 bucks even though my new for two wasn't up yet. They don't make Upstages anymore so just go get a new phone all together and see what happens :/ The Upstage is a horrible phone. Im sotrry this isn't much help. Trust me, I did my research before I decided to go into Sprint because I thought I didn't have the option to get a new phone so I was googling everything and anything I could think of to figure out what the heck was wrong with the stupid thing. Hopefully you'll be as lucky as I was.. Good luck!

Samsung upstage will not charge


the problem is that the phones socket, where that you put the charger in is broken. your phone needs a new socket. if the battery and your chager is fine, then it will be the socket of your phone that needs to be replaced.

Samsung upstage wont turn on


emann023 - Thank You So Much!
I put the battery wallet away a long time ago since it is so stupid looking. After seeing your post I went and tried it out, it still didn't work, but then I turned it on and immediately plugged it in and it's working!

The phone is still **** and broken, but now I can get my numbers out of it! Thank You So Much! I'm sure if I brought it to Sprint I would get the 'Sprint Shuffle' and no help whatsoever.

THANKS AGAIN.... !!!
