Samsung Moment - Phone Suddenly Turns Itself Off / Fix It


For the last couple of days my phone will turn itself off. I hit the start button and it powers back on. I thought that it may be because the battery was low, but the battery shows green. It restarts fine. This has happened when i have been using it and it happened today when my co-worker was checking it out. I am very careful with any apps that i install.

Samsung Moment - Can Make Keyboard Light Stay On Longer Before It Automatically Turns Off

I just signed up with sprint after i couldn't get at&t to come back with a better family data plan. We got 3 moments. The selling point was the display, keyboard, and google android. First, i have a bluetooth speakerphone thing. I think it's the motorola t505. And i'm finding that i have to go into the moments bluetooth setting and select it everytime i get in the car. My old phone would just join automatically when it and the bluetooth were in proximity, or when i turn the bluetooth on. Can i make the moment join automatically too?

Next? Why does the spacebar have a speaker icon?

Next? Can i make the keyboard light stay on longer before it automatically turns off? I found that i can press the camera button to make it come back on. But sometime it would be better if it stayed on a minute longer.

Next? When i'm talking on it, and the screen turns off, how do i turn the screen back on? Now, i use the hang-up button then menu to get the display on. This is a bother then i'm on an automated system and have to press '1' to continue.

Last one, pandora stutters and sometimes locks up. How can i get it to playback flawlessly? Is there a trick with a certain combination of wireless settings needing to be off?

Samsung Galaxy S Phone Contacts Suddenly Disappeared

Device: samsung galaxy s
Os : android 2. 1

Basically i don't use google account to sync my contacts because the groups thing doesn't work the way i want it. So instead, i use kies, which allow you to sync outlook contact with your phone, which all worked fine. However, last night before going to bed i sent a few sms message and everything was fine, i.e. All contacts were there. But this morning when i work up because of a text message from a strange number, which was actually from a friend of mine, so i thought he has a new number so i tried to update his contacts but when i click on "update existing contact" my address book pops up and is . Empty.

After that, i opened my contacts and nothing is there. I turned on displaying google contacts and its all fine, but when i choose phone contact, absolutely nothing is displayed. I did absolutely nothing last night, and i don't believe i cleared all my contacts while in my sleep (because i don't even know how to do that while im awake). Btw, i have been adding quiet a lots of contacts over the last 2 weeks (since last time i sync with kies) so i really need them back.

Samsung Moment - No More Notification Vibrations / Fix It

I've had this strange thing happen to me on with every new firmware and rom that i've installed. Notification vibrations for e-mail, etc. , Work for a little while, and then they just stop working. What's strange is that after i install a new firmware, vibrations work fine and just stop again.

Handcentsms has a "test notifications" feature that i can use to confirm the vibrations. When vibrations are working, "test notification" vibrates the phone just like it should, and when the vibrations stop working, "test notifications" doesn't make the phone vibrate either. So. There's consistency there, i guess.

Anyone else seen this? Anyone else seen this and have a fix?

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.

How Good Is Samsung Moment Phone ?

I'm a sprint hero user, my girlfriend is thinking about joining my plan and getting a moment. I know a good amount about android now but not about the moment. Would she be able to use the touchscreen to text or only the keyboard? And what are the good and bad features of the phone? Thanks for the help guys!

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 Moment - Not Able To Add Contacts Through Phone / What To Do

Sort of. I recently updated to 2. 1. Whenever i add a contact into the phone it says it is saved however it does not show up in the contacts list. I then have to physically go to gmail and move the newly stored contact over to "my contacts". Only then does the contact show up in my contact list on the phone.

This can be a real pain since i add people to my contacts almost daily and need to talk to them that same day. I can search under contacts and find their name and number through the phone that way, but it still wont show under contacts until i move it through gmail.

Has anyone else seen this issue before? If so is there a setting that i am missing that would allow me to add and view newly added contacts on my phone as soon as i add them?

Samsung Moment - How To Undo Root For Phone

I have a few questions. I am super new to android, but i have been playing with my moment non-stop since i got it last night (had it flown in next day air). I rooted and put a custom rom on my moment last night. Forgive me if these questions have been answered somewhere else on the forum.

1. How do you undo the root for the moment (unroot)?

2. How do you remove the custom rom and go back to stock 2. 1?

3. Will wifi tethering make sprint charge you? (I'm pretty sure they won't, but
Want to make sure)

4. My phone has network errors a lot, and i have to reboot. Do i have a faulty handset or does this happen to you guys?

5. How do you automatically start wifi when a remembered network is in range?

6. In your opinion, did i make the right choice in buying this phone or is it outdated? Should i have stuck with my blackberry curve 8330 and waited for the epic? (I know it won't get any official updates, but i realized that people are working on an unofficial version of 2. 2)

7. Has sprint said whether or not they will charge the extra $10 a month on the epic?

8. What is a good app that helps save battery?

Samsung Galaxy S - Contacts Have Suddenly Disappeared

My phone was working fine this afternoon, when i got home from work i pressed the contacts button to make a phone call and suddenly i had no contacts. I restarted my phone and then my sim, facebook, googlemail etc contacts had appeared but not my contacts saved on the phone (which is about 90% of them). I restarted the phone again, went into messages and entered a name in contacts and the names all seem to appear, but when i go back into contacts the phone contacts are still missing. But now the phone contact names don't even appear when i type them in as contacts in messaging. I've checked the options and the phone memory is ticked and they should be displayed in the main contacts area. I'm extremely worried as i desperately need my contacts back- could someone please please help me.

Samsung Moment - Can't Connect Phone To Computer

Just got a moment yesterday, and so far, so good. Or mostly good. I have a few problems that i scoured the internet for solutions for, but can't figure it out. So i figured i'd ask here.

1) i can't connect my phone to my computer. I'm using an imac, and when i plug in the phone with the usb cable, nothing happens. I'm running snow leopard, and it's up-to-date (i did a system update just to make sure).

The solution i found through google searching was to enable the usb debugging in the settings -> applications menu, but that doesn't solve the problem. I think the problem might be that my computer isn't even recognizing the phone being plugged in. When i run system profiler on my mac, there is no sign of the phone being plugged in. For the people who had success with the usb debugging solution, i think their phone was at least showing up on their computer in profiler. Is there something else i can try? Would it be worth re-setting the phone to factory settings, or would that not even do anything? (I'd rather not have to re-transfer all my contacts, if resetting the phone isn't going to help).

2) as part of what i thought was going to solve the problem, i downloaded the mountusb app from the marketplace, and now i can't get rid of it. Is it permanently stuck on the phone? It doesn't show up when i go into the menu to uninstall apps, and quickuninstall also doesn't recognize it. I'd rather not keep it on the phone if i'm not even going to us it (and i won't use it, since it doesn't actually solve the mounting issue).

Samsung Moment - Phone Can't Find Music / Get It To Work

I downloaded music to my sd card with 1. 5 and music player can't find the songs.

Reformatted the card, upgraded to 2. 1, downloaded from a different computer 1567 tracts and music player only shows 311 tracks. Plugged in to a different computer, unmounted the card and the computer reads all the songs and plays every one i tried.

I also have a htc hero with the same problem.
