Question about Samsung SCH-a870 Cellular Phone

Lost my Contact List and recent calls

All of a sudden my contact list is gibberish - list of crazy looking characters that changes each time I go to the contact list, and no phone numbers stored any more. Also, my listing of recent calls is messed up - lots of calls missing, listed incorrectly, etc. Happened suddenly as battery was getting low and after going through airport security in Orlando this weekend. Battery is now recharged, shows full charge, has been pulled out and reinserted several times with no improvement. Phone functions for outgoing and incoming calls, but have not been able to add/replace any items on contact list.

Well one time {i had the same fone}  my contacts started to scroll uncontrollably, like as soon as i was in "contacts" it just started scrolling down so i wen't to the verizon store and it said i had water damage so maybe that could be the case? Take the battery out of your fone and look at the little square on the back. If it is any color but purple {most likely green} that means ur fone has had water damage and that you will need it to get replaced.

BlackBerry Tour: How to change contact pictures


With your BlackBerry Tour, you can assign each contact in your address book a picture, so that when that person calls you or when you call that person, their picture will show up on your screen. The contact picture can be any viewable picture stored on your BlackBerry, and setting one up is easy.

To add a picture to one of your contacts (or to change their existing picture) go to your contacts list and find that contact on the list. When that contact is highlighted, press the BlackBerry button (the one with seven dots that looks like a paw print) and scroll down the list of options until you see Add Picture, which should be pretty close to the bottom. Click the trackball, and a thumbnail list of your image files should pop up. (Some of the thumbnails might take a second to fully load.)

If there is a picture in that list that you want to use, just click the picture to select it. You can also go up to the top of the list and select Camera, which will allow you to take a picture at that moment and use that for the contact picture. Or you can go to Preloaded Pictures (right below Camera), which is a collection of different cartoonish profile pictures that come pre-installed on your BlackBerry.

Once you choose a picture, you'll see a message that says "Picture set." Now whenever you call that contact, that contact calls you, or you view their profile, that picture will appear. You can go back in at any time to change the picture by following the same process.

I have Bt.yahoo mail and my categories for contacts have disappeared. Any way I can get them back? Thanks


This happened to me yesterday.

After much thought and experimentation, I finally got them back again!

You need to click on "Create a new category" then simply re-type the exact name of your list, putting a hypen between each word (if there was more than one word in the original name) e.g. if the missing category was called Work Colleagues, then simply call the new category Work-Colleagues.

When you click on save - hey presto! your contacts for that list re-appear.

BT recently changed the way you need to name categories by making them one word only and the popular theory is that the service provider deleted any contact categories that had more than one word in them.

They also now don't allow special characters, so just in case they suddenly decide to class a hyphen as one of these, I would strongly urge you to re-name your categories when you get them back again e.g. cahnge Work-Colleagues to just Work or WorkColleagues etc.

I really hope this helps. If it does, please post a reply to let me know and then spread the word! There must be more than just the two of us that are/were affected.

If not, post anyway and I'll see if there is anything else you can try.

I can't delete people from my contact list I have a i776 phone


To delete a contact, just go into your contact list and highlight the contact that you wish to delete. Press the button directly above the green send button and scroll down to "Delete Contact". Press the OK button and follow the prompt if there is one after that.

Hope that helps.

It will probably stay until a different contact takes it's place. You can also try adding their name again exactly as it was. After that, edit from your list of contacts by changing the contact name and number to that of directory assistance or other contact.
