    I have the same model and encounter the same problem. Once the prl.c 8281 message is displayed, the phone does not respond in any way. It just locks up completely.

No, the carrier has updated the perfered roaming list(prl.c). This update will render your phone almost useless. Maybe have the internal software updated to be current with the new prl changes.

Correction. I got a new battery for mine and it did not solve the problem. I think it is something internal. Time for a new phone. I had to let go of mine today. Very tough letting go of a 5 1/2 year old phone.

I just got that same error message. I think it's a signal for a dying battery =(

Please i need help unlocking my SCh-R631 phone i tried to program it but it is saying that the unlock code is incorrect will you please help it also says initial programming is needed but it wont let me do...


You will have to reset your mobile phone back to factory default settings.

BUT FIRST.......................Look up in your phone manual for the code for your phone.
If you have not got it then you will have to get it off the net via the samsung website under ..............................samsung SCH-R631 unlock codes or samsung SCH-R631 factory default settings, you will need to remove your battery and make a note of your serial number and any codes on the reverse of the phone then replace the battery again.
