Question about Cell Phones

4 Answers

I have an Zda Orbit. The battery died during a call on Wed night and the phone has failed to turn ever since. When I switch it on it goes as far as the windows mobile page and freezes with the 'in call' symbol staying permanently on. I have tryed turning it on and off, taking out the battery and also pressing the reset button on the side. Still the same result every time. Many thanks in advance for any advice you may have. Dan

I don't see one mention of whether or not he even tried to charge it after this happened? But it's acting like an iPod with a bad battery.

Your manual is available here: http://www.my-xda.com/pdf/user_manual/O2_Orbit_user_manual.pdf

Looks like you will have to hard reset the phone, look on page 81 of the manual.

Here is how you would do it:

To perform a hard reset
1. Press and hold the Left SOFT KEY and the Right SOFT KEY, and at the same time, use the stylus to press the RESET button at the lower left side of your device.

2. Release the stylus, but continue pressing the two soft key buttons.
Release them only when you see the following message on your
device screen:
“Press Send to restore manufacturer default, or press other keys to cancel.“
3. Press send (Green phone button) on your device.

Warning! Your device will be set back to factory default settings. Please ensure any additional installed programs and/or user data have been backed up before a hard reset is performed.

You will lose all your data on the phone, it will be just like taking it out of the box, but should take it out of the loop it is stuck in.

Even with it plugged in will it freeze up? If so, then it's not the battery and probably the board.

Let me know what your situation is for my question.

thanks

Could be your charger (cord). Borrow another of the same type and try it. Make sure you aren't plugged into a power strip or surge protector.

Hello, sounds like you need a new battery. As the battery goes flat the alarm senses it and sets off the warning system. Try changing the battery first and test it during the day. Also check to see if there is anything draining the power. You may also be able to adjust the alarm settings manually. Failing that, the alarm may need replacing. I hope I have helped.

Night button not working


Sounds like the voicemail either locked up or died. Try turning off/unplugging the phone system for about 10 seconds and see if it that takes care of it. If it fails then it might be time to get a new one.
