How do I fix my Samsung Solstice II ?

My phone keeps beeping and flashing a computer looking icon at the top of the screen near where the battery life is displayed. I have turned it off, removed battery and then re started it and it is still beeping and flashing.

Hi there!

Thanks for reaching out to us for support!
If this is in regards to the passcode to access the device, the default phone lock code of your phone is "0000" or "00000000". If the default phone lock code did not work then we can do a reset on the phone. If a factory reset is necessary, please call Samsung Customer Support by phone at our toll free number 1-888-987-4357, between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Saturday, Central Standard Time.
