I have a Samsung Fascinate and all thus far today it is not allowing to do a lot of things..
I can't send or receive messages - pictures, texts, etc. I can type out a message, but when I hit the send button it completely just deletes it, or at least that's what it looks like, instead of adding it to my 'conversation' with whomever it may be. I don't get it.
When I get a missed call, it doesn't add it to my phone calls. I can make and receive calls though.
I can't access the Market, it say that there is no connection, though my friend can access it in her phone so I know it's not Verizon.
My clock is 5 hours and 51 minutes ahead.
I've already checked for updates, updated roaming, restarted my phone 5+ times, ended applications, scanned using my virus app, etc.
I was thinking it might have been something I downloaded late last night, but I've already deleted/uninstalled the couple that I did. I just can't figure it out and I really don't want to have to completely restore my phone AGAIN.
PLEASE.. some help would be greatly appreciated!
I feel your pain; I'd be very frustrated if my phone was experiencing all the issues outlined in your post. I see that restarting and ending applications did not resolve the issues and I understand you desire not to do a factory reset.
Are you using the native SMS (text messaging) application or a third party app?
If you Change Time Manually on your phone, does the device change time on it's on later?
For the text messages issues I recommend to first ensure that no blocks have been added to your account that prevent your phone from sending/receiving messages. Then, if you are using a third party SMS application, please remove and see if you are able to send/receive messages with the native SMS application.
The timing issue sounds like a third party application conflict; please run your device in Safe Mode to confirm such conflict exist (or not). Safe Mode temporarily disables all applications that have been installed via the Android Market. Performing this troubleshooting step is necessary to determine whether a 3rd party application is the cause of an Operating System / Application issue.
If your phone runs fine in safe mode you must identify the conflicting application and remove it. Lamentably there is no easy way to identify a conflicting app and you will need to remove all apps and add one by one and test.
I trust that the above options will help you resolve your device concerns. Keep in mind that a Factory Reset may be necessary to resolve all issues.
