Question

Are any of your current T-Mobile phones able to be synced with a Mac?

I am looking for a phone that meets all of these 3 criteria:
1. Works with T-Mobile
2. Doesn't require a data plan. (Meaning it will allow talking and texting even if I don't have a data plan.)
3. Syncs contacts and calendar items with Mac OS X Lion.

Question

t259 - how to change send-message tone (I can set receive message tone)?

I have Samsung t259.
I looked in the manual and searched online.
Can’t find the way to control some of the phone sounds/tones.
In particular, tone – when I send message (I can set receive message tone).
Also tone - on phone prompts: yes / no .
These tones are too loud and I would like to be able to change their settings.

Also, is it possible to change default t9 text mode to ABC on this phone? I have to change it manually every time I start a text message.

Hi Zanne,

Thank you for your inquiry. We understand that your phone is turning off by itself even when your battery is charged. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

Can you please tell us if its completely turning off or just the screen?

If it is only the screen that is turning off automatically, you can adjust the backlight screen to make it stay longer.

You may use the link provided below for steps on how to adjust the backlight on your Samsung SGH-T259.

Note: Please copy and paste the entire link on the address bar of your search engine.

http://www.samsung.com/us/support/SupportOwnersFAQPopup.do?faq_id=FAQ00040702&fm_seq=40870

If its completely turning off by itself, please try to do a soft reset. Turn of the phone, remove and put the battery back after 1-2 minutes.

Note: Using non-SAMSUNG charging accessories can cause battery life and other issues, as well as void the manufacturer’s limited warranty.

You may also drop by at your service provider's corporate store to try using a different battery or charger to check if it would work.

If any of this won't work, please perform a Factory Reset on the phone. You may use the link provided below for the steps on how to do a Factory reset on your Samsung phone.
