1st one it could be that you have an old sim card and thats because u have a new phone but with an old sim card ofcoure it wont work properly
2nd you just might need a software update
if u have ur sim card for more than 2 years propably this would be the issue

Making your Samsung Soul MP3 and Ringr... moreNo thanks, I'll pass. When I mentioned the whole thing about the volume and battery, what I actually meant was first everyone was complaining about the volume and then that was fixed. So now they need something else to complain about (battery). I made it pretty clear in my post that I know how to get the most out of my battery. Also I have no freezing problems (don't know what gave you that idea), and I know how to use my phone properly; Which means not messing around in the hidden menus. There are software updates from Samsung every 2 months for the 'Soul'. So yes, I would prefer to have Samsung fix a problem than try to do it myself and risk damaging my phone.
Thank you! ;)
Here's how to make your Soul louder.
Thx to Samret.
Making your Samsung Soul MP3 and Ringrone Louder
- Type *#0002*28346#.
- It will bring up a menu.
- Load Params.
- Dump Params.
- Call Config.
- Press Back & it will bring up another longer menu.
- Key in 3 to bring up SPK Config Menu.
- Then key in 4 to bring up have-QTune (MP3) menu.
- Key in 1 to bring up SPK MP3 Vol. Menu.
- Key in 6 to change the max. Volume.
- Input 40 & press OK, it will change to 4.0db default max. Volume is 3db. I wouldn't recommend higher than 6.0db because the sound will distort, anything lower will be fine.
- Once done, press cancel to close the service menu & try to play a MP3 with max. Volume. This volume apply for your MP3 Ringtones & Message tones.
Nick I'll post the access prog. so you can set everything yourself... also just like all phones if you leave your blutooth on it wil drain your battery and turn down you screen brightness and your camera setting from 5mpix 2 or 3megpix.... this phone is great just learn how to use it properly. and if you have a freezing problem use the disk that came w/ it will find updated for you phone if there's a problem.. or shut down all other apps if you aren't using them.
Richard, 28 Jan 2009I upgraded to a U900 about a month ago and even though I only use it for a few phone calls a d... moreto get light on screen...just press a hardkey. any...
yes battery is a bit weak. installed opera mini for surfing which works very well with magic touch navigation pad making the mouse running in all directions as chased by a cat lol. after surfing 2-3 hrs the battery is flat... that apart this phone is just great... scoring 9 out of 10...
I upgraded to a U900 about a month ago and even though I only use it for a few phone calls a day the battery life is less than 2 days and often goes from 2 bars to flat in a few hours.
I have returned it for testing and hopefully the battery will be replaced. If not there is no point in keeping the phone as my old Nokia still has a much longer battery life. First Samsung phone I have owned and so far not happy.
I also cant figure out how to see the time on the screen (or even figure out if the phone is on!) without sliding it open as the screen is blank about 30 seconds after sliding closed. Is there any way I can view this without sliding open?
for battery issues its really necessary to discharge the battery then charge it for 4 hours then it will start to work again...
because the li-on battery needs to be reset and discharging the battery, it will reset itself. do this and u will most likely had resolve the issue.
for some reason my phone freezes when i recieve calls, sometimes not all the time, can anyone tell me wut the problem is or provide me with a solution at least.
First it was the Volume and Now This!
Here's the thing last week I did a test with my soul's battery life to see how long it would last after having it for 2 months. I honestly have to say that at first it would only last a little over a day. However, the battery (fully charged) now lasts a full 3 days with average usage - Listening to music, a few random searches on the internet, Gmaps, camera, calls, etc.
LCD's brightness - 3
Dim - 30 seconds
Back light - 30 seconds
Keypad Light - Custom Time (5 pm to 7 am)
My advice to everyone, please stop listening to all these people who have only had the phone for a week or two complaining about the battery and volume. Most of them are just bitter people who haven't even used this phone at all. Maybe they are just jealous of someone who has this phone so try to make everyone think that its bad.
The only reason anyone should be complaining about battery life is if they forgot to charge their phone. Most companies ship a charger with your phone for a reason, so use it. Don't expect them to send someone to charge your phone for you as well. But honestly, does it really take that much to charge your phone at the end of a day or two???
