I had a quick chat with a guy from the helpline. It seems you may need a master reset, which will revert your phone back to its factory settings so you'll need to backup all your data. To allow Samsung to wipe it clean you'll need to fax a letter to them (011 519 1750) that states that you give them permission to go through with the resetting. You'll also need to send your proof of payment.
Before you go for this option, please try going to your Security settings and resetting your password there. If it helps, the default password is 8 consecutive zeroes (00000000).


or try to full hard reset:
Enter *2767*3855#
This will erase all data from any Samsung phone. Its a full hard reset. It will only have the info it came out of the box.
Sometimes entering these codes require that you power down, remove the SIM and start the phone in "Missing Sim" mode.
Good luck!

REMEMBER YOU DO NOT ENTER WRONG CODE MORE THEN 3 TIMES. PLEASE DO IT ON YOUR OWN RISK,OR GO YOUR NEAREST SAMSUNG SERVICE CENTER.
ALL the best

Slide problem


Same thing with my phone, I have the kg800 black unlocked version. There are only 2 things you can do here: (I suggest scenario 2) 1. Get it repaired. (problem with that is that it costs up to $100. If you're going to spend that much, you might as well get another phone. Plus, since it's imported, there's no guarentee that this "blank screen" won't happen again. 2. Get out yout owners manual, a pen, a notepad, and some coffee. There are ways to send texts, add new contacts, and do almost everything else a normal phone can do (without opening the slide.)The only thing I can't get around is picking up phonecalls without opening the slide. It's an inconvinient process, but if you like the phone as much as I do, you'll learn to deal with it. If you have any SPECIFIC questions about the phone, I'm not an expert, but I've found many ways to get around opening the slide and still do things such as text, and add new contacts. You can contact me at Bittersweetindulgences@gmail.com
