Transferring exchange server mail certificate via ActiveSync

three times in the past two years I've had to nuke by sgh i617 due to crashes. This last time, ActiveSync tells me it's "converting" my exchange server mail certificate and all of it may not make it through to the phone. They were right. I can see the certificate in the phone file on my computer. However, I CAN'T see it on my phone and, therefore, I have no email service.

Any ideas on how to fix this would be helpful.

Erase predictive text error?

😢 I sent a text message with a typo, "OK,see" instead of "OK, I see." I didn't notice it until it was already sent. Now my predictive text brings that up as the default every time I enter, "OK," and every time I press space, it accepts it. Is there any way to get this and other typos out of the Samsung Blackjack II predictive text dictionary? My friends really don't appreciate my cryptic messages.

If anybody could help me with this it would be terrific.

"device is locked"

phone is locked and on boot displays "device is locked". A master reset is out of the question as there is valuable info on the phone I need to recover. I obtained 2 PUK codes from At&T according to IMEI number. I enter them and it keeps saying wrong password, and then a timer starts. What gives? Any help appreciated?

Free apps for the GPS verses ATT Navigator-Telenav

I noticed the GPS sections of this forum are rather old.
I just got the BJ2 to replace my old BJ and was disheartened to see ATT team with Telenav to extract even more dollars from my pocket. Did a little research and found that Google has a nice mapping section for Win Mobile and found it runs on the BJ2
This is the link. http://www.google.com/mobile/default/maps-c.h tml
Give them your mobile # and they will send a download app.

The one thing I found that makes it a little difficult is how ATT and Samsung control the GPS.
They turn it on with a separate app that is run in the background by "ATT Navigator" I think it is "ATT GPS". Google apparently doesn't know how to actually turn on the GPS (it will look for it forever)so you need ...

Listening to music on Blackjack II

I really want to get another smartphone. I traded down from a HTC from Alltel to a Sony Ericcson w580i when I joined ATT. My favorite thing about my SE is the music player, but I NEED a qwerty keyboard. I really like everything I have heard about the Blackjack II but I cant figure out whether to buy one. I know in the features section it says it has a Media Player 10 for music, but another site I looked at says it does not have a headset jack 2.5mm or a headphone jack 3.5mm. I know his sounds really dumb, but I can't figure out how I would listen to the music. Does it have to play out loud? Or would I have to buy one of those expensive bluetooth stereo headsets. I do not live near enough to an ATT store to go ask a sales rep, so if someone c...

BJ2 WIMO 6.1

When i recieve pictures from my girlfriend or whoever and save them and than try to send them its says unsupported content what does that mean? and what can i do to change that so i can send pictures?? Please help!!!
Reasons why this didn't get answers sooner:

1. Heading has nothing to do with issue, nor is descriptive.

2. You gave very little information about the problem. Is your girlfriend on another carrier like Verizon? Are you in fact using the Black...

Blackjack II Bluetooth

I have bluetooth in my car (Acura), and my previous phone (LG VX-8300) worked great with it. The Blackjack works, but the volume is very, very low as compared to the voice prompts of the car system. It was echoing badly, but the upgrade to Windows 6.1 stopped that, but didn't help the volume. Has anybody else had this problem when using bluetooth with a car? It almost seems like the signal from the phone to the car is weak.

phone sounds like your underwater?

I have two questions. #1. I bought my phone two days ago. I made two calls and both rang like 5 times then said call ended and didn't even go to the persons voice mail. I call att the next day they send updates to my phone and tell me to test it. first call i make it sounds like we are talking underwater and i hold it up to the phone and let the lady listen to it. she said try another number. so i call my work number it says its busy. which there is no way it could be. i was the only person here and no one on the phone. i call a second time and it rings. she says well the updates should help. so i hang up and my friend calls meback like a hour later and it does the same thing sounds like your underwater. question is, anyone else having th...
never had that problem, might just be a bad phone or you may need a sim card change. as for the other problem with the music you have to make sure your new device can read the same type of music files your old device can read. or if your new device ca...

strange question

I just found a sgh i617 lying on the ground. It has no sim card in it, but otherwise is in perfect condition. I have at&t service so I put my sim in the phone and it came on asking my pass code which I entered. It confirmed. Then it told me to type in password to unlockphone. I tried several and no luck. I'm sure whoever tossed the phone out the window of the car (I'm guessing from location) AFTER they removed the sim (dont understand that part, probably stolen) has that password. Is there any way around it?
