How do i get my samsung instinct to turn on it hasnt turned on in 2 days

The power on button is on the end call button, hold it down for some seconds, lets say about 15 seconds.
First ensure that the battery, the charger and the phone is intact by carrying out some tests on them to be able to detect where the problem is from.
Test the battery, by inserting it in another phone and charging it for about 2 hours then you power it on, to see if it will power on the other phone. If it works, then it means the battery is alright and if it does not power on the phone, then you know the battery is bad and need to be replaced.
Test the charger by trying it out on another phone to see if it will charge the phone, if it charges, then it means the charger is alright and has been charging the phone all this while, but if it does not charge, then it means the charger has not been charging the battery all these while but there is a problem somewhere.
Finally, you need to test the phone by inserting a well tested battery in it, then you try to charge it with a well tested battery then power it on to see if it will turn on. If it does not power on, then it means there is a problem somewhere on the phone. Most likely its power panel is bad.
Hope this information helped you.

Is there A way that my samsung instinct can be repaired-i can not charge it.

I had that problem also happen recently. I bought another off ebay and had Sprint copy all my contacts over and it was then good as new.

But now that I bought an Evo, I'm looking to sell my Instinct. If you're interested, contact me through eBay and I'll sell you the good one with all the extra stuff I have too: wall/travel chargers, batteries, etc.

The charger slot on the phone does not work when plugged in, think it needs a new port


Why don't you use the charger to charge a similar phone or use a similar charger aside yours to charge your phone to see if it is the charger or the charging port.

If your charger charges a similar phone as yours, it means the charging port of your phone is bad.

But if it does not, the charger is the problem.

If it is the charging port, all you need to do is to replace the charging port and your phone will charge.

Take care.

My samsung instinct is not charging properly. I plug it in with my charger and the charging screen appears for less than a 30 seconds then goes to my background display. I have tried using my car charger...

look inside the charge port to see if there is anything from the charger inside that my have broken off by accident. that is very common with the instinct and the m300 as they use the same style charger. you may need to just replace the charger. and if the phone is in fact broken, sprint has an insurance plan that will get you a new one for free or for 50 bucks depending on the policy

If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at

I took the phone off the charger one day and it wont power on

Then its the motherboard inside the phone where the charging port connects. It costs about 150-200 to fix unless you have sprint insurance. This happens if the phone is accidentally dropped JUST wrong still plugged into the charger, or if the charger is taken out JUST wrong and sideways or crooked. On a plus side, it is a common thing for a lot of phones and it is fixable by a technician.

Unlock a phone

You cannot use a Samsung Instinct phone on a GSM network like AT&T. The Instinct is a CDMA phone. In the U.S. Sprint and Verizon are CDMA networks, and T-Mobile and AT&T are GSM networks. Phones made for one network type are not usable on another network type.

My Samsung instinct phone freezes when you turn it on and -battery checks Good

Take the battery out for two minutes, try again, or try letting the phone die and then charge it back up. If these do not work, you will have to get the phone repaired or replaced at a sprint repair center.
