When i am attaching hands free the outgoing call is activating automatically what can i do


I have done this on my ittle LG flip; I realized I was inadvertantly pressing the auto-dial while I was inserting the phone into cage & closing gap; had no idea why phone was ringing!!! Check all the buttons on both sides of phone; check what happens when you press each button....OR, go back to your User Manual & be sure you arent in an auto dial mode.
Alternately, you may be hitting a one touch dial; check for this by going into the Menu, then Settings, then something that looks like Dialing Match or Set Speed Dial; if it indicates something similar to ^auto dial last number^ then you can resove this by changing that setting. The best way to play with this & not be calling anyone is to remove your SIM card first (remove battery & slide the little card out); most phones will still power up, they just cannot connect any calls & the SIM has your directory info only, not the phone menu.
All the best, I hope some of this helps, and have a safe, happy holiday season.

Samsung sch-r350 freeform metro pcs. Phone powers


When My Phone Did That, I Took It Into Metro And They Sent It In A Replaced It With A New One, The Guy At Th e counter Said That This Is A Common Thing And That Sometimes If You Download Anything From Your Phone Like From Funformobile.com Or Something, Or If Someone Sends Them To You From Websites Like That It Voids Your Waranty And It Causes That. I Hoped This Helped You, So Just Take It Into Metro And They Should Send You A New Phone Within 4-5 Buisness Days.

I'm having a problem with my screen turning black as soon as I make a call or recieve a call it comes back on when I plug it in. I can't hangup from a call or anything when it does go black can someone...


The screen on the droid shuts off to conserve battery power. The amount of time that it remains on can be adjusted in the settings menu, under sound and display, screen timeout. The screen can be turned back on after a timeout by pressing the power button on top of the phone momentarily (quickly, dont hold down). Also, the screen will go black when you hold the phone up to your ear, and then light back up when you remove it from your ear. Hope this solves your problem, if not just let me know.

The sound of my LG is gone


Chances of both speakers going out on these is slim so I believe the problem is with the ribbon cable which supplies signals and power to the screen and speakers. Check first to make sure you have not inadvertently muted everything from the menu selection.

G1 screen doesnt work, stays black, but still works.


Did this happen all of a sudden? Was the phone dropped? Chances are the backlight in the screen went out or the ribbon cable inside the phone that connects the screen some how came loose.

Re: Bug with Phone virtual number pad
I've found the answer to this problem!

Part of the problem is that the screen blacks out shortly after a call is connected.
When that happened I pressed the green phone button to get the keyboard back.

This keyboard image is a dummy. It visually responds to your touch but does not send the signal.

After you dial and your call is connected look at the bottom of the screen and you'll see that the normal menu tab changes and appears with the number 5 and letters jkl on it.

Pull it up with your finger. THIS is the keypad you must use when within a call to send number signals. I tested it and confirmed that it works.

If you have pulled up the dummy keyboard by pressing the green call button from within a call then simply hit the BACK button to see the real keypad tab.

If the screen has gone black and you need to light it up again then you can press BACK, HOME, or MENU to see the real keypad tab -- press anything BUT the green call button (which will give you the dummy keypad).

This dummy keypad is a true design flaw but knowing how to get to the functional one makes it an annoyance not a hindrance to using the phone.
