Question about Sanyo MM-8300

Phone Book Not Alpahbetical

This is an annoyance really, but a large bunch of numbers that I have entered in my phone book are not alphabetical. It starts out fine, then after names starting with S jumps back to L again and I have a whole second group of names. This is a real pain when scrolling through for a particular name! Any ideas how to fix this?

    Well I only have 40 contacts (hence the reason this is only an annoyance at this stage!), so its not a memory thing, and unfortunately I don't have the menu option to update the software so I'll have to try my local dealer for that. But thanks for looking!

Here is the link to the user manual if you need it; http://us.sanyo.com/wireless/handsets/downloads/MM-8300UsersGuide.pdf (Sorry is the US version, hopefully the bits we are dealing with are the same) Check page 53 of the pdf (page 37 of the manual), the numbers should automatically alphabetise, there is no setting to change. you can store up to 300 contacts, so possibly if you have exceeded this limit, the others are being stored in another part of the memory. If so the only solution is to thin your phone book out a bit. Check page 161 of the pdf (145 of the manual) for info on updating your phone, try this in case it is a software bug that has been fixed by an update. (even if updated recently, try again, the latest update could have caused the problem). Check page 106 of the pdf(90 of the manual) and try the reset - this doesn't delete the contact list, so is probably worth a try, but fairly unlikely to make any difference. Here's the link for the troubleshooting guide from sanyo; http://support.sprint.com/main.html?&selectedDeviceId=5712&manufacturer=Sanyo I couldn't find anything else in there but you might have more luck. If you need to contact sanyo direct, your closest is in NSW; http://www.sanyo.com.au/ They may be able to tell you something not in any of the documentation, and where to get it serviced if required. If you connect the phone to a pc and have the phone book synchronised with something on the pc (MS outlook or similar), then you may be able to swap them around from there. I searched a lot and couldn't find anyone else with the same problem. Hope this helps :)

    It might be worth removing all your contacts etc from the phone, formatting the whole thing/resetting to default and start again.

    Pain to do, but the memory sounds as if it's address allocation is somehow corrupted, hopefully solved by a format/reset.

    Didn't find any other ideas, good luck :)

Hi

the blackberry curve 8520 doesnt have any pre installed software or application that will block a certain number from calling/texting us.

Sprint cannot stop this because that number/user initiates the text message and they cannot get that one particular sender to be block on their server so you will not get any messages from that number.


2 Possible solution

1. you can buy the black/list software for curve 8520 that will allow you to block that number to call/text you.

2. you have to change your phone number.


Hope this help

My phone dect 6.0 uniden rings when someone calls but will not dial out


Hello :

Maybe you need to program the phone .
Here I'll tell you how :

  1. Press the Down main navigation button and press Menu/OK. The main navigation button is in the center of the keypad and is cylindrical in shape.
  2. Press either the Up or Down main navigation button until "New Entry" appears on the display.
  3. Press the Menu/OK button and "Enter Name" will appear on the display.
  4. Enter the name using the keypad. Enter the names the same way you would enter text in a text message on a mobile phone. For example, to enter the character "H," press the 4 digit twice. Use the labeling on the buttons to guide you.
  5. Press the Menu/OK button after entering the name and "Enter Number" will appear on the display. Enter the phone number using the keypad.
  6. Press the Up or Down navigation button to select "Save" or "Go Back" and then press Menu/OK. The entry is now programmed. Press the goodbye button; it's the button with the phone icon on a cradle.
  7. Press the Down navigation button and the first alphabetical number is displayed. If you keep holding the button, the phone will scroll through your phone book alphabetically.
  8. Press the button with the phone icon on it (not the goodbye button) to dial the number associated with the phone book entry.
I hope that will help .

Samsung s8300 how do i speed dial using keyboard


Hi, I found a way to get Speed Dial on the Eternity or Ultra Touch . As follows: [most of this from Phonebook/More/Settings/1 ]

1. Copy all address book entries from Sim to Phone Memory.
2. Delete all Sim Address book entries.
3. Switch Address book source to Sim.
3. Re-enter up to 99 speed dial entries in Sim, in the exact order you want them to be assigned to speed dial.
4. Switch Address book source back to Phone Memory.
From now on all numbers on the Sim will be in Speed Dial and you will view the address book from phone memory. Of course any number can be in both places.
Now to speed dial just enter 1#, 2# etc for any number in the Sim Address book. You will get to view and confirm the entry and then dial. In a way this is even better then the speed dial functions on older Samsungs, as the preview before dialing ensures you have the right speed dial entry.
I think it works fine. dk

Phonebook is organising my contacts by surname, name!


There is a field called 'display name'. Address book will show the entries however you mention in this field. So, put the proper name in this field and check.

How do I block out specific callers


There doesn't seem to be any feature in this phone which allows you to block a specific number, however, you can check under the settings -> Security -> restrict calls features, if there is any option to block a specific number. I could not find any 3rd party software which could enable this feature on this phone. You can also contact your service provider to block that phone number if 'someone' is really annoying you.
