Samsung Captivate :: SIM Card Removed - Reboot Phone

Sep 10, 2010

I have the phone for about 2 weeks now, with 3-4 hours daily use. In the middle of a call this morning, it went silent and when turned on again, it displayed "SIM card removed. Reboot phone". I took the card out and put back in 3 times, but it still happens. Wi-Fi is working, phone is still running apps. I tried to press the SIM card tightly while trying to connect, but it's no good. A quick Google search does not show many people with this problem. Anyone has a quick solution before I call ATT or Samsung?

Samsung Captivate : "Software Update Successful" Message On Reboot Not Going Away

Sep 27, 2010

Apologies is this is covered in another thread, but I couldn't find it. I was able to successfully update to JH7 over the air, but now whenever I turn my phone off/on, as soon as the boot process is done I am greeted by a Device Management screen/notification that says the update was successful. If I hit 'OK' the screen goes away and the phone operates normally.

Will this screen go away after a certain number of reboots? It's kind of annoying that it's still there even though I've rebooted half a dozen times since the update.

Samsung Captivate :: Captivate Update Bricking Phones

Sep 23, 2010

If your download fully cancels in the middle, do not resume the download. When you try to resume - the phone will think you want to resume installation [it thinks the download is complete] and will update the phone with the partial firmware download. For those phones that were bricked, that is what was said happened to them - myself included. Now, why would the update not realize the firmware isn't complete and just abort the update is beyond me. Many of us ended up with paperweights from that. Had to go to AT&T to replace the phone last night.

Samsung Captivate :: New Reboot Method?

Sep 23, 2010

After this update, which came on my new replacement phone... I can't reboot like normal when trying to apply reinstall update packages with the root from OCLF. Is there some new tricky method to get it to reboot to the special reboot screen? I tried holding the home button with the volumes and power button aside from the other, volumes and side power button and no such luck it just reloads that first att logo. I also tried letting go of the volumes when its stuck in the first logo and vice versa with letting go of the power button.I guess my rants to Samsung's customer service paid off with this update. Just goes to show what a little complaining will do.

Samsung Captivate :: Reboot Extremely Slow?

Jul 24, 2010

I have noticed that if I ever turn my captivate off and then reboot it; it will take anywhere from 3-5 minutes for the Captivate to fully boot and become usable. Prior to then it is unbelievably laggy and if I even try to dial out it freezes.

I moved my 4gb of music from the internal SD card to the external SD card thinking that may make a difference but that did not solve the problem.

Samsung Captivate :: GPS Update On Rooted Phone

Oct 3, 2010

Sorry if this has been answered, but I haven't found any many solutions through Google or this forum. The OTA update for the Samsung Captivate (that was supposed to fix the GPS and a couple other bugs) isn't working on my [rooted] phone. I am able to download it, but it says that the process failed after my phone restarts. Luckily, it doesn't brick my phone like it has done to some other people's phones. From what I can gather, it doesn't fail because the phone is rooted but because some of the stock AT&T apps have been removed. Is this the problem? If so, is there any place I can download those stock apps (AT&T Navigator, Where, Mobile Banking, etc.) and reload them onto my phone?

Samsung Captivate :: Phone Won't Turn On After Update

Oct 19, 2010

I just picked up a used Captivate an hour ago. I was messing around with the setting and saw an update section. So I did that and it said it found one, it downloaded it, and said the phone would reboot in 5 sec. After that, I get nothing. I had like 80% battery via the meter. Any tips here for a new (and scared) android user?

Samsung Captivate : Captivate Only Phone On AT&T That Can Officially Have Swype?

Jul 9, 2010

The Captivate (and Galaxy S in general) all come with Swype, right? But Swype isn't a market app right now, right? As in, the HTC Aria can't get it unless it is rooted/worked around (not too hard, but a hassle)

So is the Captivate the only phone on AT&T that can officially have swype? We all know that Apple won't let Swype in their market

Is swype coming to the official android market? is it already there? (I don't have an android, but I want one)

Samsung Captivate :: Display Battery Door Fit With A REAL Captivate?

Sep 24, 2010

So I painfully watched my Cappy's battery door crushed under my friend's car as one of their "harmless" joke. Now there's not a single site on the internet selling these doors, and I'm desperate. I found dummy/display Captivates though, so I was just wondering if anyone knows if the dummy battery door can replace the REAL door by any chance?

Samsung Captivate :: How To Change IMEI On Unlocked / Rooted Captivate?

Nov 24, 2010

I got AT&T Samsung Captivate i897 (2.1 Eclair). I unlocked and rooted my phone. I was using simple free phone earlier which doesn't require data plan but after two weeks I bought samsung captivate, AT&T added $25 data plan. I got my phone from AT&T store where my friend works so he took my data plan out of the plan for now but he said they will find out and add into your plan again. Also, He said that they recognize by your IMEI number. My question is: Is there anyway I can change my IMEI number? I was thinking to use my simple free Nokia phone's IMEI number and use it for Samsung Captivate so AT&T thinks that I am using Nokia phone.

Samsung Captivate :: Glowing Yellow Light On Captivate When Unlocked

Aug 18, 2010

After running three updates this morning. I started getting a weird light effect when I unlock my phone. It happens at the top of the screen just to the right below the battery. It's a quick yellow glow then it disappears until my phone is locked then unlocked again. One of the updates had to do with my weather widget [Weather & toggle]. Anyone seen or heard of this?

Samsung Captivate :: Unlocked Captivate / GPS Works / Need Data Plan?

Aug 27, 2010

I have an unlocked captivate. I have a German T-D1 pay-as-you-go sim that I've used many times in unlocked GPS phones. Now I have an AT&T captivate and wonder whether GPS or other apps will work. Does GPS require a data plan to work? If so I'll have to figure out whetted I can add this to my T-D1 plan. This will also answer my question about whether using the Captivate for navigation in the US needs a data plan to work.

I rooted my Captivate tonight and I know how the superuser icon with android skull and crossbones. However neither Super Manager or ASTRO will allow me to uninstall the crap ware on my phone.

Samsung Captivate :: Captivate Severe Rattle / When On Vibration Mode

Aug 4, 2010

Noticed since I work in a rather quiet environment. During office hours I need to keep it on vibrate mode. When the phone vibrates during a call, it causes a severe rattling noise when the phone is in my hands or if the bottom is not resting against a hard object. Removing the battery compartment cover and repeat, and the rattle is non existent. With the battery cover on, the rattle can be diminished by pressing firmly on the top section of the cover.

Samsung Captivate :: Swype Keyboard Captivate Is Not Working Correctly

Nov 9, 2010

The Swype Keyboard on my wife's Captivate is not working correctly. The SYM button and the one to the left of it are blanked out - meaning they are just black boxes and clicking/pressing them does nothing. She has had to switch to the default keyboard and she hates it.Any idea what is going on and how to fix this?
