Question about Samsung Instinct Cell Phone

Open Question

I have a Samsung Instinct M800 flashed to MetroPCS. I originally flashed this phone about a year ago with text, talk, and web. Everything has been working fine up until two weeks ago. Everytime I try to go onto the web, I get error # 2048. Network Busy. Try again later. I thought this would come back since it has happend in the past for maybe a half hour at a time, but it's been two weeks and I am still without internet. So, I tried to go in and fix it myself by entering ##3282# and messing around with the settings on my browser, it said to enter my 10 digit phone number, I did that. Then it asked me to enter my MSID...which was set to 000000000..i hit done and it said Re-enter MSID..I kept inputting the zeros and I kept getting the same error message. So, I put my phone number, and it accepted that and restarted my phone...but now I have made it worse! Now, I guess I am on the Sprint network instead of Metro PCS because when I try to make a call it says "If you'd like to make a collect call, please press one." AHHHH I am going crazy over here...googling this for hours...please help me someone! Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much! -Ashley

This is basically due to GPRS network problem, still you can ask for the gprs setting from your service provider and reinstalling might help you.

SOURCE: network busy/error 2048

Normally The first thing u should always do is call your service provider for support. There could be missing features on your account that can cause errors such as this and they can add them. As like BELL MOBILITY they have a special support department that deals with these types of issues and at most times are very good at what they do. In this case sounds like there are services missing on your account that give u access to the browser. Like PMY or PMS PDS. That you are not aware of.

Hi, when a phone displays a system busy , it means that the phones memory is faulty or when an application you downloaded has virus.

What to do is this, First reset the phone and if it doesn't work,
you will have to flash the phone to restore the memory of the phone.

Take care.

Insert sim card

The Samsung Instinct handset was made for Sprint network.

Sprint is a using CDMA network that don't require a sim card.
This is why you can't find anywhere to put in a Sim card.

Also if you have a Sim card I am guessing you are going to try to use the handset on a GSM network and as I said before.. The handset is for CDMA networks so it won't work.

Sorry! :(

Samsung Instinct Screen isn't working correctly

It sounds like the Samsung Instinct digitizer is bad, not the LCD screen.

You can replace it yourself for about 15 dollars. Check out the link below for a guide to replace it and where to buy the Samsung m800 digitizer

Samsung Instinct speaKer phone problems

it could be that the microphone for the speaker phone is failing or malfunctioning, and that it needs to be replaced or repaired. Take your phone into a repair center and they can fix it for you, most likely.
