    The phone turns on, connects to network, but won't let you do anything. No buttons work. It will tell you if you miss a call.

If playing with the buttons gets it to work off and on, it is most likely that there is a bit of moisture in one of the side switches. If you press and hold one button continually, it will disable all other buttons (freeze the phone) or if there is some corrosion in the contacts, it could be shorting out (acting like repeated button pushing). You can disassemble the phone, unplug everything. Remove the switches (white sticker with metal domes on the underside.) look for any corrosion, or moisture evidence, even on the side switches. Use 91% rubbing alcohol and a toothbrush to clean the main board and any connections. Use a small flat screwdriver or metal paperclip to gently scratch the under side of any of the metal domes if there is evidence of corossion or scorch marks. Use a pencil eraser to clean the switch contact surface on the main board if there is any evidence of corrosion or scorch marks. DO NOT SCRATCH THE MAIN BOARD. Use the gently scratching for the underside of the switches only. You should be able to get into the phone with a T6 Torx screwdriver. Found at almost any hardware shop or online.

My cell phone battery dies much quickly

Some cell phone batteries work fine for a short period of time and then rapidly diminish their holding capacity. The battery that has previously worked fine for 10 days standby begins a downward time drop to last merely a couple of days. A simple procedure that I have found to be invaluable is to:
1. Turn the power to the phone off.
2. Remove the battery from the phone.
3. Replace the battery into the phone.
4. Fully charge the battery.
5. Test the results by noting the time and day of item 4 above. Leave the phone on standby and see if the charge will now last many days. If so, congratulations, your phone is almost as good as new, and you didn't need to find and buy a new battery (or bother the customer service staff).

My sgh-j700 is freeze up on me. what is the problem and solution

Well, ask yourself some questions 1:have you got your phone went 2: do has your phone ever dropped on the ground, if so you have to get a new phone. At my current 13 year old knowledge i say the wires are crossed with each other freezing your phone,my friend had the same problem with his Rumor 2. What my friend did was took the battery out,put it back in,then he charged it and it worked fine...or so it seemed. Hm what i'm trying to say is you might need to get a new phone.

Top row of buttons don't work

Well, I found the solution. I traded batteries from one the working handset to the non-working one, and the problem was corrected. Thus I need a new battery.

That happens to mine, too. What you do is stick a pin through the little reset hole on the left side (under the switch you hold down to turn it on). That should reset the player. If that doesn't work wait until the battery runs out and then charge it.

Fun mode and batteries

Dont use Ni-cd batteries, only NiMH or the new "Oxy" batteries from Panasonic, 5X the power of Alkaline and higher voltage, GREAT disposable battery for a Digi-cam. Some cams will NOT work on the old zinc batteries, even brand new. Fun mode is probably just to edit anyway, probably not a shooting mode.

you simply fried your battery by overcharging it. Just get a new one, let it fully charge and fully die twice before you start normal charging. Then you will want to only charge it for about 2 to 3 hours or find a charger that has a smart chip that tells it when to stop charging once the battery is full.
