Question about Samsung SCH-a670

1 Answer

HELP!!! My Samsung Upstage feel when I was getting out of the car and stayed in the rain for about 2 hours before I found it. It seems like everything works except the screens - they are white light with visible water spots. I can dial and use my pre-set speed dial #'s just fine (thank GOD), but I can not see a thing on screen. I am tempted to open it up and dry it with a cotton swab or maybe a blow-dryer of low ... What should I do? If I take it to Sprint, how much help am I going to get in the repair? Will they just try to sell me a new phone and hook me again into another contract? What is their responsibility to help me REPAIR this very expensive phone? Thank you for your help! SM

You can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

Samsung upstage wont turn on period. It is dead


I just had to buy a new phone because my Upstage had the same problem! But mine would stay on for not even 5 seconds before turning off and it would just repeat. So I went into the Sprint store and they gave me the Samsung Rant for 50 bucks even though my new for two wasn't up yet. They don't make Upstages anymore so just go get a new phone all together and see what happens :/ The Upstage is a horrible phone. Im sotrry this isn't much help. Trust me, I did my research before I decided to go into Sprint because I thought I didn't have the option to get a new phone so I was googling everything and anything I could think of to figure out what the heck was wrong with the stupid thing. Hopefully you'll be as lucky as I was.. Good luck!

Upstage won't turn on at all.


You need the power adapter to charge the battery. Since the battery has been discharged you may need to charge and unplug it for a while (hours) and charge again more than once before it will even display again. Go through this cycle, It may take several days. Then, when it does come on it, may be locked 10000 numeric lock codes and if it was reported lost or stolen it cant be used as a phone unless by the original owner. You should ask if someone you know if they losted their upstage and return it, they would probably be very grateful and give you a reward because all the phone info. then get a ipod. :)
good luck,
dad with 3 upstage phones - two had this problem and lost one.

Charging the battery on Samsung Upstage sph-m620.


Well if it's new, then I would take it back to the store from where you bought it. It will be under warranty so, if something is wrong you should be able to get it swapped out with a working one.

Drop Samsung Upstage in water


wow, himan and masir really have no idea what they are talking about. clean it properly before inserting the battery? remove the battery and get it serviced? you 2 are idiots. the upstage battery can't be removed without disasembling the entire case and then desoldering the battery from the board. i bet you 2 are probably the same people that get complaints left and right when people call dell and get an outsourced call center...

Samsung UpStage? SPH-m620


My phone was doing the same thing..
I took it into the Sprint store, and they made me leave it for a couple hours so they could "try to fix it"..
Which, by the way.. they never can..
Any time I take a phone in there.

But basically, they made me order a whole new phone..
Because the Samsung UpStage is just a piece.

Sorry to be the barer (sp?) of bad news!!
