Let me elaborate. On your phone press the:

1. Menu--scroll to Tools & Settings---press OK
2. Look for Security, press OK
3. Enter the last 4 digits of your phone #, or whatever you set the lock code to.
4. There should be an option to delete contacts. Becareful not to press the Reset Default option, for it will erase everything (ringtones, pix, filx, screensavers, etc..)

**If the Security option is not seen in the Tools and Settings, then choose Call Settings or Phone Settings. It should be in one of these.

It's in the phone settings. You will need the 4-digit security code to complete the process. Default is either "0000" or the last 4 digits of your phone number.

Camera problems


I used to have this phone and it caught on fire and gave me that error. I would try resetting the phone, and as a last restore, a hard reset (meaning all contact and settings information is lost).

Samsung SCH-u740 problem - front screen stays on and speakerphone switches automatically


I would recommend a hard-reset of the device. Keep in mind that this will delete all of your contact information and customized settings.

On a side note, be careful not to accidentally press the speaker-phone button on the right side of the phone during a call. I used to have this phone and I would sometimes do it without even realizing it.
