    yep when i plugged it into the ac adapter no charge indicator light turned on, same with my USB cable. the battery was at 80% when it happened.

    ah but thats a problem because i bought this phone from one of my friends to use with my cingular go phone account because all those phones are so low tech so i dont think theyd send me a new one would they.

I had a similar problem, 80% battery phone randomly shut itself off and would not start again. no lights if I plugged in charger or anything to indicate phone was getting juice. Found a diagram of the motherboard, located the fuse and operated on my phone. If I touched the 2 ends of the fuse with tweezers and plug in cord, got the red light with no battery. This indicated fuse bad. put a little trail of sodder to connect the 2 ends of fuse and put battery in and presto, I now have working phone with no power fuse. Could burn up some day but was going to be trashed anyway as out of warranty.

Code for unlock sim card of 8525 att pc phone


I don't think anyone here can give you a sim unlock code. Unless you want to pay for it you can buy from ebay.

Here's the free solution.

Run this unlocker on your phone. Follow the instructions exactly. Don't unlock the CID unless you planning on installing another custom rom other than ATT on it.

T Mobile Wing bluetooth and music help please


Hi fazioli73,

With Bluetooth enabled cell phones, if it has a music player, the only device the music player will recognize to output audio is a set of Bluetooth Headphones, not a Bluetooth Headset.

Once you have the Bluetooth Headphones, set them into pairing mode. Then go into your Bluetooth options in your phone, and go into add/search for device. Once your phone recognizes your Bluetooth headphones, and you have it set as your main Bluetooth device, your music player should play through the headphones at that point.

Sincerely,
Gina, Communities Connection Manager
