Question about Samsung C417 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Phone powers down

My phone cuts out and powers down during calls. The backlight is the first sign that I am going to lose connect. AT&T said that the phone must be turned off periodically to allow updated information to be added when the phone turns back on. I have not heard about anything like this in a while. She compared it to a computer that says you must power down to receive updated information, when in fact new computers simply tell you to go to their site and download the updated information. Please give the scoop as I am tired of getting the run around.

My sony ericsson zylo. when someone calls me they can hear me but i can't hear them, please help

1. try to switch on the loudspeaker or connect a headset. in case you can hear your partner this way there must be a hardware problem with the phone's smaller speaker. Often as a result of firmly hitting (dropping) the phone.

2. make a test call and try to change the volume during the call. (However, I don't think it can be a problem since power off/on cycle resets the volume to a default value)

My incoming calls are going straight to voicemail

Hi,

I think it's mostly due to the following: phone is off, lose of connection, bad reception area, network is down. But if none of these are going with your phone then try this. Go to your phone settings> phone or network (depending on menu) and disable 'call forwarding'. It may be set to go to your vm automatically with no delay (0 seconds waiting time). I hope these suggestions work. Regards

Jawbone original seems to go into sleep mode. If I have not received a call for a short time, the Jawbone seems to go into sleep mode and I am unable to answer an incoming call with it. I have to answer...

I have a Jawbone and have not experienced those problems. You may have a connection issue with your phone. Maybe the way your blue tooth is set on the phone....power settings?

The wired keyboard backlight turnes off too quickly

You would need to go into the Setting Menu and find the Backlight or Power setting to lengthen the display and keypad backlight times. Just know that your battery life will decrease the higher the settings especially since it is a VGA screen.

Losing connection lately, and no caller ID??

Hello Kimberlynbil,

You actually have two problems here, one can be solved (but it's hard) the other might not be able to be solved at all.

First the hard (cost wise) to solve problem: Caller ID
What you can do is get a wireless phone that works in the 5 GHz range.

Now for the second problem which is why I suggested the solution to the second problem: Router cuts off phone and phone cuts off router.

This occurs because the router (wireless) and the phone wireless are using the same frequency spectrum 2.4 - 2.5 GHz. when the phone tries to communicate with the hand set the router sees this as an interference and ups its power slightly and this drops the phone call on the first ring which consequentially is the ring on which the data for caller id travels. once the phone senses the interference from the router it up is power slightly and then "steps on the router's transmission cutting off your wireless connection to your PC. So the phone and the computer are off line until one of them stops transmitting.

I hope this helps,
