Samsung Galaxy Prevail


Jun 18, 2011, 7:02 PM
When I first bought the Galaxy Prevail I thought, "great, is has everything I need at such a good price!" Until.......a few days ago, when it started to re-boot over and over. It would turn off and on even when I am trying to make a call. It is getting really frustrating. I tried calling the Boost Call Care for tech advise and all I heard was "to re-boost or add money."
I went to their website and called the number they have posted for technical support...and got the same How can I get in touch with a real human being that can tell me how to fix the problem?
This on and off business really sucks! Mad

Boost Mobile contacted me. They walked my through the settings and guess what? I no longer have access to my voice mail!! Their techs are inexperienced. They are passing the buck to Samsung. I was told by Boost that I may have to mail in my phone and who knows how long it will take for them to fix it. Samsung is closed today so now I have a phone that not only turns off and on, I also cant access my email. Thank you Boost for your great service. this really sucks Mad

I had some trouble with my Prevail also but (this is astonishing) it seems that keeping it in a pocket or purse without a cover causes a problem with the keyboard. I was keeping it in a briefcase and carrying it on a plane and the phone got jostled around between things. One night I couldn't get it unlocked. the bottoms keyes kept flashing. I took on the battery rebooted multiple times, etc. The next morning everything worked fine. I have kept in in cover when travelling and never had another problem.
