Question about HTC Touch P3450 Smartphone

2 Answers

Sof Hey! My phone randomly turns itself off or freezes and the on/off button becomes useless. The only way to turn the phone on or off is to reset it via removal of the battery. It happens often. I have been told I maybe need to reinstall the "firmware". Any ideas where I get the firmware from (not on HTC site) or if this is indeed the problem.. Thanks!!! Natalia :)

    Same problem with me. The screen goes black and there's no way to turn the phone back on. I've tried taking out the battery; plugging into USB; plugging into AC source: reseting the phone by pushing the stylus into the hole on the side of the phone.

    Any other recommendations?

That happends because the sleep mode is on on the settings. You must press the power button for 3 or 4 seconds to wake the phone. Instead of having that option on got to settings, key lock and select lock buttons if device is locked. This way, when it goes to sleep, you can press one of the hard keys and wake the phone with no problems.

Forgot pass code for i830 and screen freezes

Remove the sim card from the phone and turn it back on, as if you where to dial a number like 911, instead dial *2767*3855# (you may have to press 9 first to get it to open up, remove the 9 and write the code above) the phone will restart, this is a full reset. After your phone has restarted insert the sim back into the phone, turn it back on. if you are still asked for a code other than your sim cards pin number enter 00000000 (that is 8 zeroes) you may also try 1234, 12345, 0000, 00000, but the first one with 8 zeroes is the default code for samsung.

The wireless connection problems for blackberry pearl

I can't think what may have cause it. I would suggest resetting the phone by turning the handset off removing the battery. Leave for 1 minute and re-insert and turn device on.

Go to networks and allow the device to search networks automatically and turn data service on.

Let me know how you get on.

Pantech duo turns off randomly

Open the battery compartment and look at the dot at the bottom. If its pink you have damaged your phone, usually water damage. It will continue to shut itself off and on continuously. You will have to have a new one.

Phone Memory Doesn't Increase Even If I delete messages

Something probably got stuck in your phones memory, the easy way to solve this is to backup your contacts, calendar and other important items to your computer and do a hard reset of your phone.,


This is achieved by turning the phone off, press " 3 ", " * " and " green (answer call) " and turning the phone on at the same time.

Remember to save anything valuable, because it clears EVERYTHING.
