Question about Cell Phones

580i wont turn on!

Was on AT&T. Company with a "box" unlocked it. BUT, it could not send pix on either network or as Picture Messages.
I tried (foolishly) entering a code from the Unclock To Talk Company on the net. Didnt help, BUT when I turned it off, it would not turn on again. completely shut off. Cannot turn it on. As if I did it on purpose to keep it being used by a stranger.
HELP??

    To clarify, it was Unlocked from AT&T (didnt know about subsidy unlock codes). Worked fine on TMobile
    but couldnt send pix.
    I believe entering the "Unlock to Talk" unlocking code on top of a phone already unlocked except for the pix messaging, did something to lock up the turn on.Possible?
    Is there reset button on it. Are there any combination of "pushes" that will light it up?

    Kindly confirm that to best of your knowledge there is no external pushing of buttons that will enable it to come alive.
    tnx

    Thank you. If I think of another angle, I'll "call" you

Hi all you need to do is do a flea power by removing the battery and dont connect to the charger while you do that make sure you take the sim out leave it turned off for 20 mins then just connect the ac adapter (charger) try to turn the phone on and then it will ask you for the sim card. Unplug the charger insert the sim follow the same process of connecting and now you can get the battery installed and then the charger then turn on the phone check the status and tell me, ill assist you further.

I think you didnt have the correct settings and service enable on the phone to send multimedia messages.

remove the battery for a while and try again.

if it doesnt turn on you have to take the phone to a local service center or a phone shop to be flashed.

    you can also try to turn it on while its pluged to the charger.

  • Ekse Apr 30, 2008

    if it works on the charger then it means that the pins under the battery arent touching the battery.

  • Ekse Apr 30, 2008

    to my knowledge there is no external pushing of buttons to turn the phone on.



    A service tech might know better, in any case these things are kind of sony secrets not publicly known.

You probably do not have MMS (multimedia messaging) support with your plan. Call your cell phone company to confirm you have this feature.

My motorola rival a455 wont receive picture messages or videos from other phones


if the phone is unlocked and you are using the phone on a different network. Example---T-mobile phone with a AT&T sim card you won't be able to send or receive or get on the internet. Each company has different settings for the Data networks so either call tech support and see if they can reprogram with there specs.

First need to find the IMEI for your phone. Power on phone and type *#06# this will display the IMEI. You will need the IMEI to get the corresponding unlock code. Every phone has a different unlock code. Then call your provider and request the unlock code.

Power on the handset
3
Press the left Arrow (<) button
4
Press the star (*) button twice

Press the left Arrow (<) button

- display will indicate "ME Lock"

- wait approximately 3 seconds

- the display will indicate "Network" and a picture of a closed lock
6
Press Yes

- the display will indicate "Unlock?"
7
Press Yes

- the display will indicate "Enter NCK"

Enter the SIM Unlock code

The handset will display "Network" and a picture of an open lock for three seconds and will then revert to the main display.

The handset is then successfully unlocked.
