    I recently activated a prepaid Samsung Smooth/u350 on my postpaid line. I was able to make calls (I didn't try texting) right out of the box, but it took a little time and effort to get Backup...

    Yeah, Backup Assistant is notorious for that, when they first made it free, there were a bunch of posts about the problem.

    It's too late to help, but IIRC, if you delete your online contacts...

    Thanks, I tried a couple of things but forgot to do that, which worked. A bunch of entries in the stored phonebook were corrupt, though, so something definitely "hiccuped."

    You're not supposed to do it and they're not supposed to let you but if you do the switch without human assistance -- online or over-the-air -- it does frequently work even with brand new phones that...
  5. Anyone else having trouble with Backup Assistant?

    For the past few days, Backup Assistant has consistently failed to back up my phone book, saying the password is incorrect. I tried changing the password to another one (which it allowed me to do,...

    The Knack's earpiece volume is acceptable but nothing special. The ringer volume is actually unusually low, unfortunately. The display font can be made quite large and the black and white display...

    If you search on u350 you'll find a thread about recovering the phone's SPC using the trial version of CDMA Workshop. Try recovering the current SPC for your phone, changing it "back" to all zeros,...

    Or wait until they tell you "no" before you finish the question, then ask for their ID and see if they let you finish the question instead. ;)

    I just activated my second Walmart u350 in two weeks, straight out of the box. Both times, I switched the MEIDs online before activating the phones on my account for the first time.

    The first...

    I can understand a need to turn off the old phone during the ESN swap, but she meant you need to keep the old, already-deactivated phone turned off forever or it would cause reception problems...

    Ah, OK, so it's like them telling you to update your PRL no matter what problem you're calling about. :D
  12. Inactive phone prevents incoming calls on active line?

    A CSR informed me that if you switch phones on a line, you must turn off the old phone or "The System" wouldn't know where to send incoming calls. She went so far as to suggest removing the battery...

    You're mixing apples and oranges. Unless the account owner paid for the phone, how does it belong to him or her? Unless you mean that it's somehow "moral collateral" for her future obligations to...

    I spent quite a while trying to find one too and eventually stumbled upon a version packaged into an installer, that was the only thing that worked. I think I found the link over at CDMA Gurus (I've...

    Because most of the forum's advertisers would strongly object? ;)

    The phone has never (yet) been activated as prepaid. It is indeed the sort of "retail box prepaid phone" ($14 shipped, from Walmart . com!) that HF305 mentions, which I activated on postpaid right...
  17. OK, thanks. The phone in question is a Samsung...

    OK, thanks. The phone in question is a Samsung u350, so no data plan. In fact, no EVDO even, just 1x. The phone was sold as a prepaid phone so it's definitely "prepaid capable", I was just...
  18. Can use a postpaid phone on a prepaid account?

    This sounds a little confusing, but it's not, it's just wordy. :)

    If you successfully activate a prepaid phone on a postpaid account, can you then switch the phone back and forth between a prepaid...

    Unless you have a specific need for one of its few features, the Knack is pretty pathetic. My mother just got one because of an eye condition that makes high contrast very, very important. For her...

    But that's not the only change - they want to do away with a primary account in the process that still has a year to go under contract. A simple assumption of liability will just put both primary...

    Anyone know if the Knack has a one-piece battery, or is there a separate cover - I can't tell from the pics I've found? Even before my mother's vision recently took a serious turn for the worse,...
