Question about Samsung SCH-u740 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Phone turns off momentarily and reboots when I try to retrieve messages.

When I try to retrieve messages in the inbox, the moment I press the "OK" button, the phone momentarily turns off, then re-boots, then the screen is white until I push the END button twice. It only does this when checking the inbox. I tried the paper between the cover and the battery with no help. What gives?

    The exact same thing happens, when I try to retrieve a new message or access my inbox the phone reboots.

    The solution was that when I called Verizon, they just replaced the phone without really any interest in what the problem was. But they were receptive and helpful and prompt! The bigger question, though is what happens if it occurs beyond the one year warrantee?

It seemed like there is a corruption in the phone's firmware. You should be able to take it back to where you bought it and get a replacement.

Note** The firmware tells your phone what to do when you press any button....without it, the phone is nothing more than a shell.

Ok, here is what you do to delete your messages in the inbox:

1. First you press your messages button where they are located
2. Now scroll down to where it says Inbox and make sure it is highlighted
3. Next press the button that looks like two pieces of papers one on top of the other...it is next to the OK button in the middle but on the left side.
4. Next you will see something that says Setup...press OK
5. Scroll down to where it says Cleanup press OK and you will see Inbox and Sent Items on there. Choose your Inbox ( you can also do the same for sent items)
6. Now just choose how often or how many messages you want cleaned up...then press the OK button.
7. It will automatically ask you if you want to do this now...choose yes

Now your inbox has fewer or no messages...

Have a blessed Day!
