Question about Cell Phones

2 Answers

I bought a sharp 903sh online through YesAsia. On my pc it shows up a sx833. I can't make or receive calls but it will send and receive texts. System sounds eg text arriving,are fine but the voice recorder doesn't record and when I ring my landline and it goes to answerphone the timer records as if it is connected but no message is recorded. It is Vodaphone branded though supplied unlocked for UK. Hope you can help 'cos I really like a lot of its features. Thanks for your time.

    Thanks for your prompt response but unfortunately it doesn't solve the problem. I tried out the first part re voice recording but using the alpha keys eg D for dial didn't initiate any activity.
    The second part re can't make or receive calls I had already gone through this testing using the troubleshooting in the user manual. When I tried to check call barring etc using network password 0000 the message was unavailable.
    The data communication (sending photo) works via Bluetooth. Thanks again for your time.

Most cell phone companies have a online way to text. Try using it to see if your friend receives it. You could also delete the contact info for the friend and start all over after they send you a text.

I live in michigan and i just bought a lg shine ke970 from ebay. and i went to go use it for the first time and it is saying no network? why is this? i cant even text on it!..

Who is your provider? Did you put your sim card in?

I had issues sending and receiving pictures and I tried all the online solutions with no luck.
If you call your provider (on a land line) they can either send an mms validation text that you then save and activate or they will walk you through what you need to enter. Good luck
