Question about Samsung SGH-Z500 Cellular Phone
After turning the phone on and entering the SIM pin code, the phone goes to the stand-by screen as normal then 5 seconds later the phone freezes completely. All the keys don't work and the backlight stays on even when you close the clamshell. The only way to turn the phone off afterwards is by taking the battery out. It also heats up if you leave it on while frozen.
I have a better solution that requires ** cables ** downloading ** bull...
You might need 2 people to do this
- The aim is to let the phone start up and as soon as you can see your wallpaper push out your sim card!...
- so let the top of the battery connect with the phone and keep the back up off the phone, turn the phone on
-when the phone starts up (a bit before it freezes) get some1 to push the sim card out, dont let go of the battery!
- the phone should still be on and working, push the battery and lock it in position without the phone dying.
-your phone should work perfectly ** freezing, NOW GO TO SETTINGS IN THE MENUE AND PLAY AROUND CHANGE EVErYTHINZ!!!
- turn phone off propperly and insert your sim card it should work perfectly, you can change your setting back **w of course
this better work for you too!

i have exactly the same problem.
i did whats written above. it worked. i got to my settings, re-set them. changed other settings too.
turned the phone off, inserted sim card and turned it on again. entrered the sim pin. the phone starts reading the sim, i receive a message and thats when it freezes again. the phone doesnt have time to read the sim. it looks like the received message (which i cant open or delete) is freezing it. i dont know what to do.
any help please??
thanks a lot

This completely WORKS. I was finally able to save all the files that I thought were lost forever. I highly recommend trying this if you have the same problem. It's tricky with this Samsung's battery to hold it in place and to knock the SIM out before as soon as the welcome screen comes up. I found it easier to plug the usb connection into my computer, leave the battery off entirely, and turn it on that way. Anyway, it's pretty straightforward and it DOES get the phone working again--which is pretty impressive considering that most places will make you pay a bundle to fix the phone, while more will offer extremly complicated fixes that require soldering irons, etc!
