trying to move default tones to new phone

So my mom really likes her "Melody 5" ringtone, but as the phone stopped holding a charge after 2 years, we got her a new phone. Is there any way I can send that ringtone to her new phone or are the ringtones available online somewhere? any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Key Lock

Is there a keylock on the A850 phone? I lost my manual, and have been trying to figure out how to turn on a keylock for days. If anybody knows how to use this function, I would really appreciate it.

no lcd/speaker

hdy i'm having issues with my phone right now. The phone was dropped in coffee a while ago and was turning off occasionally. so i took it apart to clean it and now when i put it back together the lcd and ear speaker dont work (like it cant get to the top part of the flip thing) and i was wondering if anyone would be able to help me. maybe if you could find me a diagram to help me get it back together right. i looked on google and could only find reviews of the phone.
thanks a lot

or is there a way to get another phone for cheap and keep my same plan?

contact list

Does anyone know how to erase the entire contact list at once? Or do you have to erase them one by one?

Hot battery

I just recently got this phone and it's fine for my use; contrary to other reviews I haven't had a problem with reception or voice quality.

Normally I have short conversations but today I had a 40 minute phone call and about halfway into it I noticed the phone started to get warm. By the end of the conversation it was pretty hot. After closing the phone and allowing it to sit it cooled off fairly quickly.

Anybody else had a problem like this? Is it just a defective battery or is there a problem in general with this phone and the battery?

Rich, just to be certain, this DOES have a speakerphone, right? It's not a typo? I mean... a Samsung with a speakerphone? Forgive me if I sound a little skeptical. 😎

After taking pictures to the memories limit, whenever I try to access the camera it gives me the message:

Photo Gallery
Delete Some Pix.

But the problem is, I cant even access the gallery because it won't let me go to the camera, so I can't delete any pictures. I tried deteling, inbox, sent, my messages, some records to clear some memory but that didnt work. I also tried to delete photos by entering the gallery when sending a PIX message, but that function isnt there.

Anyone know how to access the camera in this situation?

entering a 1 in a text message in alpha mode


when creating a txt message, while in any alpha mode (aba, Abc, ABC), you can't enter the numeral 1. you can enter every other number, including 0, by simply pressing the corresponding alpha key enough times to scroll through the other alpha choices. but not so for the 1 key. to get a one you have to go into numeric (123) mode.

this seems so ridiculous to me. my girlfriend and i recently both got this phone. i transferred over from cingular, she upgraded from her previous verizon phone. she says she was unable to do this on her previous verizon phone. to enter a "1" in a text message she has to enter 123 mode.

are we just missing something? on my old cingular nokia phone i simply had to push the 1 button a number of ...

Poor Reception

Here's my problem. I bought 4 phones on the family plan, and they work great for the rest of the family. I however work for the railroad. My signal will go bye-bye very quick. It will go from 3 bars to zip instantly. I work with co-workers, also on Verizon who keep signals all the way up the road. Is this phone known for weak signal reception? Are there any fixxes? Or, are there any suggestions for phones, on Verizon, That are better recievers? Also, I don't like the user interface, poor icons, poor contrast, etc.
