Questions & Answers for samsung u430 Cell Phone

Question

How do I disable the buttons on the side of my SCH-U430 cell phone?

At times, it is not convenient to carry the phone in a holster, so I carry it in my pants pocket. If I am working in such a way that there is a lot of physical pressure on the phone, external buttons on the phone are accidentally pressed and held in. In such instances, all of a sudden I will hear a clicking sound coming from my pants pocket as a picture or two are being taken. In other such instances, I will hear a voice coming from my pants pocket asking me to say again what number I want to call. These unintended activation of functions on the phone are a big nuisance. There seem to be no settings on the phone for shutting off these external buttons. Did I miss something?

If you want a ringtone that will be compatible and that you really can use to your phone, I suggest to contact your current service provider for them to give the steps on how you can get one. That's the only way you can get a ringtone that will surely work on your handset.

Hi!

Because Voicemail is a network service offered by your service provider, questions concerning voicemail, such as those outlined below, would be best addressed by contacting

your service provider.

> Configuring your Voicemail for the first time
> Desire to change the greeting
> Unsure of the password
> Wish to change the password
> Would like to know how to access your voicemail from another phone

We can do minimal troubleshooting. Once troubleshooting has been done to the point of actual failure, we can setup a repair on the product, should it be determined the problem cannot be resolved over the phone. We can repair the phone, if it is still under warranty and has not been physically damaged.

If it is deemed, after troubleshooting, that the handset requires service/repair, our Repair Administrators will create a Return Material Authorization (RMA#) for the device. Provided there is no physical damage to the phone and the failure is not due to any type of liquid damage, the phone will be repaired under warranty.

If the phone has experienced damage or is out of warranty by date (it was purchased more than one year ago) the standard charge will likely apply for the repairs to your phone. We are only able to arrange payment for these repairs through credit card (Visa or MasterCard).

For troubleshooting and questions related to possible repairs we invite you to contact Samsung Customer Care at your earliest convenience through our toll free number 1-888-987-HELP (1-888-987-4357).

Have a good day

Hi there!

Thank you for your inquiry. Apparently, we do not have any available software nor drivers that you would be needing for you to connect the phone to the computer.

As of the moment, Samsung is unable to speculate when/if this software might be available due to the fact that this might lead to inaccurate information and confusion.

Should this become available, it will be posted on Samsung website in the Samsung Download Center.

If you are going to transfer pictures saved on the SCH-U430, you can send them through e-mail messaging.

To send a picture to an e-mail address:

1. While in standby mode, press the OK button for Menu.
2. Select Media Center.
3. Select Pictures.
4. Select My Pictures.
5. Highlight the desired Picture, using the navigation keys.
6. Press the right soft key for Options.

8. Select Picture Msg.
9. Enter the e-mail address, using the keypad.
