I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I had a bit of condensation in my old Samsung. You could see it in the little display window on the phone front. I followed advice here and put it in a warm place and the water dried up. My phone was fine! Then I had a long conversation on it, and when I finished, there was no display. Just a black screen. The phone powers on, works-- just no display. Is it curtains for my old Samsung?

How do I unlock my at&t windows mobile 6.1 without calling at&t support?

A:Unlock Samsung AT&T Windows mobile?

I noticed that no one has responded to this post, and one good reason is that, in most cases, unlocking a phone is against the carrier's Terms of Service, or ToS, and many members would rather not give the know how to break the rules, so to speak.

I got one of these recently and my windows xp fully updated computer doesn't see it.
It came with a cable to link it via usb to the computer but no software to act as a mediator.

I purchased Motorola Phone Tools and a USB cable to transfer some of my mp3's to my cell phone. When I uploaded them successfully, the quality was greatly reduced and I can't figure out a way to modify them - it sounds very scratchy when I set it as a ringtone. I don't see any option that the program gives me to modify bitrate, etc (my friend uses BitPim which is not compatable with my phone, but his ringers are much higher quality). If anyone can help me increase the quality, I'd appreciate it!

some extra info in the "preview" section when I'm about to send it to my phone:

44,100 Hz
Quality: 16 bit stereo

A:Cell phone

Without any clue as to model numbers, its a hard call to offer constructive advice, but the Palm unit will allow the export (from the PC based copy on Palm Desktop) of the addresses and numbers to a .csv file.

If your new phone has connectivity to the PC, then it may be able to import them, but that would depend widely on the model and your own ability to connect it to a PC.

Alternatively the Palm will usually allow IR (InfaRed) beaming of the addresses, and if your new phone will receive IR data then that may be possible.

wireless service.

Thank you,

A:Samsung Cell Phones, Can they be used with any provider?

If it's got an AT&T logo then it's *probably* locked to AT&T. Not certainly, but my experience has been that unlocked phones aren't branded with a carrier. (At least those that are purchased as unlocked. I understand that there are authorized unlocking procedures for some phones, but there aren't for all phones so your best bet would be to check with both AT&T and your new carrier about your specific phone.)

A:Bluetooth & Cell Phone

I have a different Android phone than your's .
With that said when your phone is paired with the computer you can transfer file's between each other but to look threw all the folders and stuff on the phone with your computer you will need some software on the phone , with that said I use a program called Webkey for Android it works with the browser on your computer but I think you have to have your phone rooted to use it, there are other app's on the Google play store that do the same thing

Oh to transfer file's with no app . On your computer right click on a file that you want on the phone and pick "send to" and one of the options will be "send to bluetooth" (or something looking similar to that) and on your phone long press on the file you want send to the computer and something similar will come up . It's been a while since I have had to do that I can't think of the name right now. As long as you are paired this should work

A:Cell Phone Ringers

Yes, after you pay for music it is yours to do what you want with it (except copy and sell it/copy it and give it to another person)

I suggest IT DOES cost some money, but you can make your own wallpapers, ringtones and the such and upload them into your phone.

As for what type of file to convert it to, I would need your phone. Some higher model phones can play MP3. Others play a .mmf or .smaf format. Every phone is different

A:Unlocking your GSM cell phone

I can confirm the bit about European cells.
Bought (as an upgrade) 3 tri-band cells, from and locked into the Vodaphone network (in Ireland).
Having spent enough money (i.e. over ?130.- per cell) on my previous Vodaphone pay-as-you-go phone-bills, all I needed to do then was call Vodaphone customer service with the cells' IMEI-numbers, they gave me the unlock-codes on the spot!

CSI Stick grabs data from cell phones.

Note: this device is available to the public for sale at $200, and needs additional software to mine all of the cell phone data captured.

Is your cell phone password protected at the data/charging port?

The rule: if your phone contains sensitive data, do not leave it unattended. If you loan it to someone to use because they tell you theirs is not working, make sure you actually see them using the phone and there is nothing connected to it.

I have a cricket wireless A300 cell phone and I want to sell it. I posted it up on ebay and someone bought it, but when I got it ready for packaging I realized I could still send and receive text. Cricket will not let me turn the phone off because my account is already suspended and they said there is nothing they can do unless I pay my bill. I'm not paying a bill and buying a new phone. If there is anything someone can help me do I would surely appreciate it. I just want the phone to not be able to get any service so I can ship it to my buyer.

I currently have Sprint PCS plan and i want a new cell phone. I Been eying that RAZR for awhile and was wondering if is compatible with sprint?
Also, i cant change sprint service for another year since i have a contract with them. Only way to cancel is by paying fee which i think is like 150 $
This is probably not the right forum to post this, but to me, it sounded like the best place. Networking

A while back I applied SP1 and my synchronization quit working. I downloaded the latest Windows Mobile Device Center (6.1.xxxx) which didn't help. I restored to a point previous to the service pack and now I am able to sync my cell phone/pda. Has anything been changed to allow me to apply SP1 and still sync my phone? Or do I even need SP1? What does it do for me?

The micro cards that go in a LG eNV3, for example - If you format one from another phone to use in the NV. Are they formatted as FAT, FAT32 or NTFS?

A:Cell Phone Card

FAT or FAT32 is usually used in mobile devices.
Best way to be sure it is formatted properly is
to use the built in format function in the phone.

I know its not your typical first question but I'm wondering if there's any way to get Windows 7 to see a connected and tethered Windows 6.1 Smartphone to use it as the modem versus the built in PC hardware ?

I need the cell but not the landline now and it would be a great help. Conversely - I cant seem to locate a Smartphone compatible fax software so I can generate a doc on the PC and send it to the cell for faxing.

A:Windows 7 fax from cell phone ?

Well I was just thinking about this myself today. I on the other hand can already tether my sony phone to get me on the net with 3G speeds though t-mobile. I have to fax some papers but I can't find a fax machine around that doesn't charge 1.50 a page after 2.

So can you tether the phone at all? USB or bluetooth? if it was a blackberry or other phone I could help with the basic connection but I have never used a windows phone.

you might want to try a google search for windows 6.1 smartphone forums, you might find an answer that way. oh and the modem phone could help me find your answer too.

I tried going on the Nokia Forum. Went back three times and I still couldn't find out how to post a thread so gave up. Can anyone here help me with the following two things please?

1. How can I increase the backlight time? It goes off far too quickly. I wonder when Nokia is going to redress this problem because all their phones have short lighting times and it's a pain.

2. With other Nokias I've had I was able to create a welcome message. I can't find out how to do it on the C3. Have they taken this facility away?

Thank you.

Is it possible for someone on a Verizon cell phone family plan to send a text message to another member in the plan, and have it appear to have been sent by yet another plan member? I'm being accused of sending this message, but I absolutely did not send it. The above question is the only thing I can think of that could explain this. Thanks for your help.

Also, not only did I not send the text message, but I had been blocked from making calls or sending text messages to this phone. One member of the 5 of us in the plan is tech savvy.

A:repairing cell phone

Most of what I found was of the "yep, sometimes DIY projects go awry - you need a pro" nature - sorry. Nokia has a specs pdf that might help you (I recently had to do a system restore and my PC is slowly rebuilding itself and all the upgrades, and I couldn't get Adobe to work).
They will also look at out-of-warranty phones with this proviso (from the site)
"If the out of warranty device is "repairable", you will be contacted by the Nokia Authorized Service Center with a repair quote before the repair can begin. Prices vary by product and the nature of the repair. If the device is deemed "unrepairable" it will be returned to you without prior notification."
Sorry - maybe another can help more.

I'd say Google using your phone's make and model and problem you're experiencing as the keywords. Depends on the popularity of your phone, you might be able to find forums dedicated to it.

Have you tried resetting your phone or update the firmware to see if the problem goes away? Or taking the battery out?

The message on the PC monitor indicates something like "242 of 261" items and stops there, while that on the phone continues to rise to "(more than 261) of 261". Not all tasks and calendar items are synchronized.

I have a sony erickson z500a cell phone that I'm trying to get themes and ringtones on. I contacted them and they said I could send it by inrared (not on my laptop) or by bluetooth. My Computer has "My Bluetooth Devices" so I'm assuming my laptop is bluetooth ready.

So what do I need to get so I can send the themes from my laptop to my cell through Bluetooth? Something to conect to the phone OR do I need something for the latop itself?

I have a niece who has a pc with Windows XP who would like to be able to connect to the internet through her cell phone, and as I understand this, it can be accomplished by installing a bluetooth card in the pc, and using a cell phone that is bluetooth compatible. Does anyone know if this works? Is it any faster than dial up?

Hi DC3,

I tried that last year with lots of problems. You have to have a "data" type connection. Very expensive here vrs standard dial up or even cable modem. They wanted $10/500K downloaded. That would be one night for me. I tried it for a month, but it never connected correctly. That was a year ago so things maybe better now... hopefully cheaper. It was a cool thought, but I opted out.

Good luck,
