Question about Samsung SGH-a777 Cell Phone

1 Answer

The phone stops receiving text messages after its been on for several hours, i can send text messages all day long and they are received by the people i send then to. i can't get any messages back unless i power the phone down and wait several minutes then restart the phone , then all the messages that have been sent to me start coming all at once, the phone will work normal again for several hours and then stop receiving text messages again, this is the third phone , same model that has done this, it will receive mms message just fine , at&t tech support has no answer and have had me try different text message settings and nothing helps at&t just sends me back to store for a replacement,each phone stops working normally within several hours, we have tried a new sims card, still no help , if i put my sims card in the 10 dollar walmart phone it will work fine . any suggestions ? thanks, steve schmitt {sgh a 777} 1 green , 2 blues

Hey steven sc480 i experienced the same problem on the samsung a877 where the phone wont send anything. i finally learned after a while that the only solution to the problem is to restart it. its very annoying but u just have to accept it or upgrade to a new phone. the model i had which was the impression was notorious for its pink screen of death where the phone sends so many messages it just decides to turn the screen pink. but anyway i think that may be a relation in some of their phones. i know its annoying but i just got used to it. sorry

Hello. Remove the battery from your phone and leave it unplugged. Wait two full minutes and return the battery. This will reset and restore your phone plus update it. now try sending a text and ask the recipient to text u back and acknowledge your text.

Try reprogramming it back onto the network by pressing *228 and selecting option two. If it doesn't make a phone call at all, check around with friends in the area to see if they're having a simliar issue. If not, then call Verizon and they'll walk you through troubleshooting the phone.
It sounds like the transiever in the phone may be burnt out, so if troubleshooting doesnt help, then you'll need a service center. Visit verizonwireless.com for repair centers, and then call to confirm they'll repair the phone onsite rather than sending it out.

Won't send or receive text messages.


I had the same problem twice when I changed service on the phone, once when I asked to change from a fixed rate for 200 messages per month to pay-per-use and the second time when I changed phones out with the same number. They just turned off my text messaging and I had to call to have them reactivate it. Help this helps.
