Question about Samsung Cell Phones

2 Answers

I have just bought the samsung tocco, when i inserted my simcard the signal was fine, after an hour or so i was in an area with no signal, which is fine, resulting in a mobile phone with a red line through it on the top of the screen meaning limited service. but as soon as i get back into an area where signal is good, my signal bars appear full again yet the mobile phone symbol with a line in it remains at the top of the screen and i am only able to make emergency calls, even though the signal is full. i put the sim card in my old phone and then took it back and put it back in the tocco and it was fine again, for an hour or so, or until i lose signal again. i am having to repeat this every couple of hours. please could you tell me what the problem is? could it be something to do with 3g, and my contract sim card???

    In mid call my beat shuts off even though battery is full and signal strength is strong. Then I have to restart it again and it shuts down again. Yet there are times when it will run properly for an hour without a problem

Did you buy the phone brand new, or used? Try doing a master reset on the phone.

SOURCE: changing my tocco from contract to pay as you go

even though you have switched to a pre-pay ...that is a data phone and most companies don't tell you that a data plan is needed 4 the phone to operate plans run between 19 and 50 dollars...depends on your provider..

Blackjack no sim card or simcard error

I had the same issue, cleaning the contacts on the sim card did not help. BUT i went and got a new SIM, it did the same thing.. till i wedged some folded up paper into the sim slot on TOP of the sim card forcing it closer to the contacts. So far this is working for me atleast. good luck.
