    Phone is horrible.... I've been fighting w/ it for a year!!! I get the "emergency calls only" EVERYDAY .... the only way to remove it & get phone working again is to turn off. I have also removed the battery, & cleaned the sims card several times, still no help!! I have already done a warranty exchange and problems are actually worse than before. I never had so many dropped calls or "emergency only" problems with any other phone. I have actually switched phones w/ my daughter & I am using my sims card in her phone (Sony Ericson slider) and have had absolutely no problems at all!!! I put her sims card in my (Sync SGH-A707) and guess what....... yeap... same problems as before!!! Go figure..... My advise is to Go trade it on another phone before your 30 days are up..... this phone is HORRIBLE!!!!

I turn on my phone it goes to a screen saying Emergency Download


Wait does it say emergency mode only? If so this has happened to me many times on this phone.

Turn off the phone and remove the battery. In there will be you should see the SIM card. Pull out the SIM and put it back in. Put back the battery and turn on your phone.

For some reason on these phones the SIM card gets dislodged. When it does the phone won't work because the SIM card is what makes the phone your number etc. All cell phones, that have no service otherwise will be able to call 911. Apparently it is a law, so that is why your phone is on emergency mode. Without the SIM card the phone is a phone without service and will therefore only work in emergency mode.

I hope this is what you meant.

My Sci phone 68i will not pick up a signal.


If you are trying to dial in only one place and it is reading emergency calls only that means you are not getting signal. Mine stays on emergency calls only while in the house using a T-mobile sim card. I don't get very good signal here. Try it in other places and see if you catch signal. If it's stuck on emergency only make sure the slot is turned on under dual sim settings in settings. If it still doesnt work I'd send the thing back :P

Sim card wont register


You SIM card is inactive. You have to make at least 1 paid call every 6 months otherwise your sim is deactivated. If it's new sim has to be activated.

I bought the samsng sync A707 on ebay and everything works except can't make or receive calls. says Emergency calls only


 If the phone is saying emergency calls only it is because you need a registered sim card from a cell provider. So you just have to go and have the phone activated at AT&T or whom ever you are going to use as your carrier.

Unlock a Samsung A707




Insert ANY unaccepted SIM card in the phone and then turn the phone on, follow the steps in 1 to 4 below to enter all the codes. The phone will states "Wrong card" at the end of step 2 and "network lock deactivated" at the end of step 4 if you do everything right so pls take your time to enter the code or follow the instruction correctly at each step. When entering some of the zeros at steps 3 and 4 your phone may display the zero as hyphen or minus (-), dont worry, just count when entering the zero to ensure you enter just the right numbers of zeros. Now let's begin... 1/ Put any unaccepted SIM card in your SAMSUNG SGH Phone, turn the phone on, it will display "WRONG CARD"

2/ At the wrong card screen, type *7465625*638*00000000*00000000#

3/ Now remove the battery with the SIM card, Put the battery back and turn the phone on again without the SIM card, it will display "Insert SIM card" 4/ At the insert SIM card screen/end of step 3 above type #7465625*638*00000000#

At the end of step 4 phone will show "network lock deactivated" 5/ Now Reinsert your unaccepted card or any other unaccepted SIM card in the phone and enjoy your unlocked phone!
