Question about Samsung SGH-D900 Cellular Phone

Using an AT&T SIM card in a T-mobile phone

The Samsung I chose to go with my AT&T plan got water damage and it would cost more than $120 to replace it. I can't get an upgrade for 18 months. My local AT&T center suggested that I just go to target and get a cheaper prepaid phone and then put in my AT&T Sim card. So I just bought a T-Mobile Samsung (t219) and put in the Sim card and now it tells me that I have the wrong card in it.

Is there a way to override the provider association on a phone and just use it as a piece of hardware with whatever Sim card I choose? If so, how do I do this?

Thanks

Yeah, you need something known as a Network unlock code. This can be obtained from T-mobile and the code should unlock the phone for use with other networks. There may be a charge for this.

Alternatively markets do this for free on occasion.

I would like. By step instructions on how to T Mobile jump program works


T-Mobile's new JUMP! upgrade service offers you the option to pay a $10 monthly fee, which includes handset insurance, to then have the option to upgrade your device twice per year for no additional fee. The fee is separate from an Equipment Installment Plan (EIP), which lets you purchase a phone with little money down and the rest of the cost spread out over 24 monthly payments. When upgrading a device, you must return your current device to T-Mobile in order to move on to the new one.
Although this new plan does offer the ability to upgrade your phone potentially every 6 months, we break down the cost over 12 months with just 1 upgrade in order to keep it consistent with AT&T's plan, which we'll detail next.
The breakdown of T-Mobile charges after a year is as follows:
  • $150 down for the handset
  • $20 per month EIP x 12 months = $240
  • $10 per month JUMP! fee x 12 months = $120
  • Total at 1-year trade-in = $510

AT&T Next

AT&T Next is more of an all-in-one package, which combines both the upgrade features of JUMP! with the EIP program that T-Mobile offers separately. With Next, you purchase a phone by agreeing at the start to pay 20 equal monthly payments which in the end total the full off-contract/unsubsidized handset price. For example, the Galaxy S4 retails for $640, so the monthly payment is $32. After 12 months of payments, you then have the option to return the working device to AT&T and have the final 8 monthly payments wiped out, letting you then purchase a new handset for $0 down and with 20 new payments.
Next only allows you to upgrade once per year, and while it does not carry an additional monthly fee like JUMP! it also does not include handset insurance. For the breakdown below, we've included AT&T's $7 per month handset insurance to even the playing field a bit.
Again, the breakdown of charges after a year:
  • $0 down
  • $32 per month x 12 months = $384
  • $7 per month insurance x 12 months = $84
  • Total at 1-year trade-in = $468

Differences

As we noted, there are a few differences between these upgrade schemes. First up are the upgrade cycles -- T-Mobile will offer you two upgrades per 12 month period, while AT&T only offers 1 per year. T-Mobile's more frequent upgrades come at no additional cost, however, meaning that an upgrade at 6 months costs the same as at 12 months. This means that you can trade in that Galaxy S4 for an HTC One after 6 months, and swap even once more if you want before AT&T offers you the first and only upgrade of the year.
The flip side is that T-Mobile charges a monthly fee for the ability to upgrade, whereas AT&T simply charges the handset price. That is almost a wash if you choose handset insurance on AT&T, but in the end it is optional. As we noted above, T-Mobile requires a down payment for most handsets, whereas AT&T bakes the price into the monthly payment instead. In both cases, you're agreeing to buy the phone for a full off-contract price, and simply have the option to return it before you've paid it off to get a new one -- in essence, you're renting a phone.
The biggest difference of all is what T-Mobile's JUMP! and AT&T's Next mean for your final bottom line when pairing that device with the service it needs to run.
What about that subsidy? And this is where we get to the big sticking point on AT&T's Next upgrade plans. Based purely on a device vs. device purchase basis, AT&T actually does offer the cheaper option for buying a phone on an installment plan and upgrading once every 12 months. What the above numbers don't show is how your monthly service charges don't change on AT&T regardless of whether or not you choose to buy a handset subsidized.
AT&T's service plans are structured and priced to factor in the cost of buying a subsidized handset on-contract every two years. The reason why you pay $200 on-contract for a Galaxy S4 is that the other $440 of the MSRP is spread out monthly in your service contract already. That roughly $20 per month subsidy is still included in your monthly service fee whether you choose to use that subsidy or not.

My Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9000 doesn't read my SIM Card


Can't figure out exactly what the problem is. Try with the following methods.
1) The SIM card might be damaged. To check this, Try inserting the SIM card into any other active network free phone. If it doesn't work then sure the SIM card is damaged. If it works fine then the SIM card is in good condition.
2) The SIM port on your phone might be damaged. Try inserting any other active SIM card to it. If it doesn't work, then sure the SIM port is damaged. If it work fine, Then the SIM port is in good condition.
3) The phone might be network locked. If the phone doesn't allow any network SIM cards to work with it except any one specific SIM card, Then it is sure network locked. You can unlock a Samsung Galaxy S2 safer and easier using unlock code. You can get the unlock code for a Samsung Galaxy S2 from ProUnlocking.Com at affordable cost with easy unlocking guide. Good luck.

Samsung WA82HAG water leaks while running the machine


WA82HAG water leak :
I have been using a WA82HAG top loading washing machine for 7+ years without any issues. Of late water had started to leak out of the drain pipe when the machine was in wash or rinse.
I contacted the customer care and was pleasantly surprised with their professionalism. The support personnel patiently listened to what I had to say. They even called back when the line got disconnected during the conversation! All details were asked for, expected cost estimate and technician visit time estimate was provided over the call.
The next day the technician arrived and diagnosed the problem to be a faulty drain valve. The rubber in the valve had become hard over time and was not plugging the drain correctly.
The following day he returned with the spare part, fixed it and demonstrated that the problem had been solved.
The total cost was Rs.300 for engineer visit + Rs.750 for the spare part.
Attached images of the replaced part. Black rubber can be seen in the second image.
I am completely satisfied with the how the issue had been handled. I will consider a Samsung washing machine if i plan to upgrade in the future.
Thanks Samsung!

Dropped samsung wave mobile in water dried and then tried to turn on but will not respond and does not appear to be taking charge what can I do


well the phone will not be accepted under one year warranty because it was damaged by the consumer (not a factory malfunction). Usually the only thing you will be able to do is file an insurance claim through your provider (if you chose to take insurance on the device when you bought it). The next step would be to take it to a store in your area with a technician or go to the store and buy a phone used or just outright. Depending on what carrier you have sometimes (like with at & t) phones you can take your sim card out and just pop it into any other At & T phone to use until your contract is eligible to renew.

I need to replace a battery in a Michele watch. Sometimes I am asked if I want the seal replaced which is expensive. DOn't i need that


Seals in water resistant timepieces go bad over time. This exposes the movement to moisture, dust, etc. which can damage your watch, costing expensive service or a new movement. If the watch is worn in the water often, the rule is to replace gaskets every 12 months. If it is occasionally worn in the water, they must be replaced every 18 to 24 months. The seals must be tested properly under the appropriate pressure for the rating of the watch by submerging the timepiece in a pressurized chamber. If your watchmaker is recommending this for a watch rated WR, water resistant, or 30M / 3 BAR don't bother. This should never be worn in the water. If it is for a higher rating (50M/100M+ 5BAR/10BAR+) and you wear it in the water, it may be worth the investment.
