Help? Dormant mode and Flashlight?


Nov 26, 2008, 5:01 AM

So, I purchased this phone in no small part to the reviews it got here. So far, 2 problems that I can't seem to find the answers to.

1. The phone rings for exactly 1 second, then dumps my callers to voice mail. I can only assume it is in some kind of power-save mode that takes a little bit to come out of. If that's the case, or whatever it is, I want to disable it pronto so I have time to pick up my phone and open it before the caller gets dumped to voice mail.

2. I thought this phone was supposed to have a flashlight feature, where the LED camera light could be activated and used as a flashlight? Can't find that feature anywhere in the user manual.

Please help!

The reason the call is being dumped if probably because you have a cell phone case with a magnetic clip.

Why anyone would put a magnet next to ANY electronic device is beyond me. But you people have your reasons.

And the flashlight is turned on when the phone is in regular mode and closed. Hold the shutter button for a few seconds it will come on for ten seconds then shut off.

No way to keep it on permanent that I know of which sucks.

I use a case with a magnetic clasp, and I've never had that problem. There has to be another reason for this poster's problem.
