Whatever we try (including wireless manager)...the phone will not turn's stuck in "phone off" mode.

In wireless manager, we click on "phone" clocks for a bit like it is turning on, then nothing says in the off mode.

    Black Jack Phone has Phone off issues. This seems to be happening if I try to hang up a call when I know CE is hanging. If I take out the battery and leave the phone out for a week, then it seems to be working. Not sure what the issues is. May be its memory hungry just like all other windows

    exact same problem...took mine into the ATT store. dude tried to sell me a new phone. ugh. since i wasn't going to buy one yet...he also suggested i upgrade to windows mobile 6, which i did, but to no avail.

    sometimes phone works, sometimes not...calls cut off halfway through. is not reliable. if i get the Phone Off problem, i take battery out and keep resetting until i get it back online...

This solution worked for me: NJ

My Samsung Blackjack showed "Phone off" on the screen even after I switched on/off several times.

The fix: Turn the phone on and call your voicemail (i.e., hold "1" to connect to voicemail).
It will prompt you that the phone is off and that if you want to turn it on.

Press "yes" and Voila!

I had the same problem with mine, but I took the battery out, then I put it back in and before I turned it back on I held down the up button and while I was doing that I push down the power on button for about 2 or 3 seconds then I pressed the number 1 button then i pressed the y button then it worked

Posted on Feb 12, 2009

Maybe some of the problem is it may be on toggle mode which is only activate on window media player by pressing "8 button" other than that i suggest holding random button and try not to get mad and brake it.

Blackjack i607 stuck in "phone off"

Try doing a master reset. this will delete all of the data and settings but it may help. go to settings, push more until you see security, and then press reset. if not have AT&T send u a new one (if you still have a warranty) if you havent already you should try a soft reset before doing the master. soft resets leave all of your data intact. to do this: turn the phone on. after it is on fully, remove the battery and wait about 30 seconds, then reinsert the battery.
