I can't go left with the joystick at all...but when I open the phone right on the white part near what i think is the joystick box and a little space between the joystick box n white part if i lightly press on there with my finger nail in the correct spot n hold it, while i am holding it, the joystick will go left, otherwise it does not go left what so ever...do i need to replace something, just clean it or does it require more then above? I tryed blowing in there for dust / dirt etc...no repsonse, my friend who gave me the phone told me he put a piece of plastic between the joystick center "joystick box" and the white part on the left of the joystick and tape over it and it worked for so long now it dont do anything unless i press on the phone at the right spot, the person that could help let me know and i can maybe email a picture of exactly where i am pressing to get the joystick to work to the left...i really want to use this phone but it is limited due to not being able to go left, any help would be appreciated greatly!! :) thank u

If you have access to a laptop computer that has an Infrared Port or Bluetooth communications, you can download your videos and picture files via either of these two methods. I use an old IBM Thinkpad 600 with IR port to download mine. You have to put your z525 phone into Infrared mode first, its kind of tricky with out seeing what you are doing. First, open your phone, press upper right (-) sign to get menu, click joystick control down 2 times then right 1 time. next press upper left (-) sign to select. next joystick right 4 times, and down 1 time. press upper left (-) sign, then joystick up 1 time. press upper left (-) 1 time. Your Infrared Port will now be turned on, and your I.R. enabled laptop can now receive the files from your phone. Close your phone, open it again, press upper right (-) , press joystick down 1 time, then left 1 time, then press the joystick center select button 2 times. Joystick right 1 time, press joystick select 1 time. press upper right (-) 1 time, joystick down 5 times, joystick right 1 time, joystick down 3 times, joystick center select 1 time. Hold the lower left corner of your phone toward the I.R. port of the laptop, it will receive the first photo file in your camera pictures file. Another possible method would be to obtain a usb connector cable for the z525 phone to connect it to your computer. Using the usb cable the computer would recognize the phone, you could click on the phone icon, under "MyComputer" and transfer the files to your hard drive. I hope this helps. -Mike
First open your phone. Press upper right (-) key to get menu. Press joystick up 1 time to get Messaging. Press joystick center select button 1 time, then down 1 time for "Inbox" (or down 3 times for email). Press center select 1 time, joystick down 1time for Inbox, center select for first message. Press upper right (-) key for "More", then joystick down 2 times to get "Forward", press center select. Press upper left (-) key to "Continue", press joystick up 1 time to get "enter email addr." Press joystick center select button, and enter the email address you want to forward the message to. After you have typed in the email address, press upper left (-) key "OK" 2 times to "Send", if you normally enter a password, type it now, press upper left (-) key for "OK" and your message will be sent. Hope this helps. -Mike
First open your phone, then press upper right (-) key to get to menu. press joystick down 2 times, then right 1 time, to get to Settings. Press joystick center select button, press joystick down 9 times to get to Master Reset, press center select button. Joystick down 1 time to get Reset Device, press center select, then press upper left (-) key. This will delete all user settings & data, including pictures, messages, data, sounds, games, contacts etc. The phone will be restarted. If this doesn't fix the problem, you will most likely need to replace the internal wiring harness.(Not a job even I would enjoy!) Hope this helps.
Start with the Z525 closed. Next open your phone. Press the right (-) key 1 time to get Menu. Click joystick down 2 times, then joystick right 1 time, & then center joystick select button 1 time to get Settings. Click joystick left 1 time, then center select button 2 times to toggle Bluetooth OFF. Close phone & you're done. I hope this helps. -Mike
