Samsung Galaxy S Cannot Make Calls Even When Having Service


I was on the metro today. I got off at a station which has service when the rest of the metro doesn't and needed to call someone however, although i had service, i couldn't call because it said "no data network/connection" or something like that. I used a friend's phone and i was able to make the call.

Now i've only had this phone for a week now but if i can't make calls in a place where you easily can, then i don't know about keeping it. Also, my phone had zero battery while making the call so maybe that had something to do with it?

Static Noises During Phone Calls - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

During phone calls the first few minutes are fine, but after a couple the person on the other end gets loud screeches, laser noises, static and eventually drop offs. At first this only occurred when i had incoming calls, but now its both and consistent. Verizon told me that this was my sim card and replace it. Im now on my 3rd sim card with the same problems. So do i keep getting bad sims, or is it my phone. Have any of you experienced this?

But basically, when i go to back up my current rom, it comes up with a message like this: what was said in the fascinate forum is that i need to flash cwm with odin for it to work properly. Is this correct? And if so, how do i go about it?

P. S im using ***'s speedmod k12h 500hz kernal if that makes any difference to anything.

How To Make Free Data Calls?

So, i used to do the googlevoice + gizmo + guava combination to make free calls via wifi for months and was happy. But recently about 2 months ago, guava stopped working properly, and i wasn't able to get an alternative. I tried sipdroid, but don't know how to set it up. What can i do? I want to use google voice in conjuncture with the other services, because of the phone number gv has given me.

Manage Receiving / Make Calls With Mediaplayer

I'm sure this is a topic already, but i can't find it. I've got a streaming audio application that needs to pause when a call comes in or is made, and resume on completion. I found some logic that does this in the music player.

What i found sets up a phonestatelistener and listens for changes in the phone state and adjusts accordingly.

Do i need to implement this code or is there some new fangled approach i should use?

Issue: Haven't Been Able To Receive, Send Texts Or Make Any Calls

So, for the past week and a half i haven't been able to receive texts, send them or make any calls. I could be in an area where i know there is 3g and i have no service what so ever. I could go to make a call and it will show that i have 3g and when i hit the call button it drops to no service and i lose the call.

Also, i've looked at my phone and it has said it was 6:03am when it was 9:03am. As i post this my phone is saying it is 4:55am when its 11:55am. This is the second time my clock has been messed up. No clue to why it has done this. Has anyone else been having these problems lately?

Motorola Droid X - Cannot Receive - Make Calls After Froyo Update / Fix It

I have had a few issues with calls since the froyo update. Occasionally, i cannot receive calls or make calls. Everything seems to be working fine, like if i am receiving the call i can choose to answer it and the call time counts up like the call is connected but i cannot hear anything and neither can the person calling me. The same thing happens when i make the call, it seems to connect and the call time starts counting up but it never rings. When i restart the phone the problem goes away. Has anyone had the same issue/know how to fix it?

Issue: Incoming Calls Muted During Music Playback On Galaxy S2

I have a ford fiesta bluetooth connection via a 3. 5mm jack. I have a problem with incoming calls when i play music. When i make or receive a call during music playback the volume is muted and i cannot hear it dialing or the caller. I have to switch the phone off and on to be able to make calls again. It only happens when music is playing. Any ideas how to fix this.

I also have a different problem when the phone is not playing music but just making calls via bluetooth. The person at the other end can barely hear me. I used to have a nokia 5800 and never had any problems with callers not being able to hear me. Even when shouting as loud as i can people still say its quiet.

Htc G1 Receives Calls, But Calls Don't Ring

Title says it all. Quick overview:

- I can immediately see that someone called in dialer's call log, but it doesn't show up on the phone's screen.

- According to people that have tried to call me, the calls ring once and then go straight to voicemail.

- I've disabled call forwarding. The ringer and vibrate are on.

- Phone is rooted with cyanogenmod and apps2sd.

- Apparently this started happening about a week and a half ago. Since then, i've installed ebuddy, tf2 backpack, and powervocab.

- I clear my phone's cache via cachemate at least three times a day, and run advanced task killer to make sure apps aren't running in the background.

- I can make outgoing calls just fine.

Am i missing something here? This is a very strange problem. If possible i would like to avoid wiping the phone.

Samsung Moment - 2.1 Rebooting During Phone Calls / What To Do

I hate to make a new thread for this, but i just wanted to throw this out there. If your phone is rebooting during phone calls try turning off bluetooth.

I have read many reports about 2. 1 rebooting during phonecalls (suspected to be caused by using jit). Mine had not rebooted during a phone call until a few hours ago when i arrived somewhere after a short drive. After i got out of my car my phone repeatedly and without fail (4 times) my phone continued to reboot every time i tried to make or receive a phone call. I thought about what i might have done to phone in the pat hour to make it act this way. Then i remembered that i had paired my bluetooth and left bluetooth unpaired but still running on my phone. I turned it off and was able to make a receive calls.

Granted, i still get an occasional reboot from normal use. But at least i can make calls again

Samsung Epic 4g - How To View Missed Calls

I was using my co workers htc phone and noticed she had the pattern lock password- the screen that first showed up though was the regular unlock screen, once you unlock it you had the pattern screen. Does the epic do that as well? Or is that an htc thing. I like how you can view your missed calls and once you unlock it you can put in your pattern password.

Samsung Epic - 4g Disconnects During Calls / Fix It

I haven't had any success talking with sprint or samsung reps.

I have wifi hotspot enabled from sprint, and i have a 4g signal. I can connect and use the wifi hotspot with no problem, but when i make or receive a call, my 4g automatically disconnects. Basically, i can't use the wifi hotspot and the phone at the same time. I've tested this on the evo, and it was able to use wifi hotspot over 4g and make calls with no disruption. Is this just not possible with the epic? Or is there a quick fix?

Samsung Captivate - Calls Don't Come Through On Phone / Fix It

Everytime my boyfriend tries to call, it never rings and never shows a missed call. Texts come through fine. I just bought the phone yesterday and love it, but i can't figure out why all of my calls don't come through.

I also saw thousands others of this question, but never saw a definite answer. The only thing i can come up with is that it is impossible to get notifications, like wall posts through facebook app without having to open up the program. True?

Samsung Epic 4g - Roaming Options Menu Pops Up After Phone Calls

Half the time, when i hang end a phone call, the roaming menu pops up. Not a warning, but the actual settings menu where you choose how to address roaming. It is driving me nuts. Anyone else experience this? If so, anyone figure out how to fix it? Not sure if it has anything to do with the fact that when i make a call, the 3g symbol disappears. I kind of doubt it, but i'm grasping at straws.

Samsung Vibrant - Phone Shows Full Bars But No Service / Fix It

So this has happened a few times, but my vibrant will have full service and 3g or wireless access but it acts if it has no service. Internet stuff works just fine but when i try to call out and then it'll immediately end the call or immediately fail the text. It'll also go straight to voice mail for incoming calls.

The 3g or wireless will still work just fine and i can use every other function, surf the web, apps, whatever else works. I've tried to reboot, reboot and pull the battery, toggle on and off wireless, and toggle on and off airplane mode to try to reset the connection. Nothing but waiting it out seems to work. However the weird thing i noticed is the phone will give the "auto time and date updated" or whatever message and everything will work again. It'll only happen once in a while. Anyone have any ideas of what's going on?

Samsung Moment - Evo Vs Moment / Out Of Range Service Beeps

I am eligible to upgrade, but i want to get some opinions before i decide. I will not purchase or pre-order the evo either before it has a few weeks to settle in and also monitoring others experiences. My concern is that some of my gripes with the moment my not be corrected or addressed with htc either.

- Anyone here have htc experience as far as durability and dependability vs samsung moment. Physically and structurally to me, the moment has been great, want the same from evo/htc

- Gps, my moment sucks, what experiences have others had with comparable htc phones vs say blackberry which works wonderfully for us

- Out of range service beeps, these on htc phones or just the moment

- Cdma lockups, on my moment they are more recurring now with 2. 1 than before. Is there any reports of this with the htc phones

Hate not having a keyboard (evo), but these things actually are distractive enough for me to consider a replacement.

Samsung Captivate - Music Skips A Few Beats / Make It Not Do That

When i play music, it will out of no where just start skipping a few beats. This thing has the most powerful processor out there right now. What can i do to make it not do that? It's getting annoying and i would hate for it to happen around other people. Kind of embarassing that my high end phone can't play music smoothly.

Other than that and the gps, i like the phone so don't take this as me dumping on it.
