Unable to send pics to email addresses
Hello, I'll start off by saying I like the capabilities of this phone. However there is one thing that is 'sticking in my craw'. I cannot send pictures to email addresses. I've called Net10 several times, and twice now they have said they have to 're-program' the phone.. And i should leave it on for 24-48 hours.
The strange thing is.. I have (2)t401g's, and the other one 'does' send pictures to email addresses. I don't understand it. I am in the midst of the '2nd' 24-48 hr. Period in which net10 is 'supposedly' re-programming this phone, we'll see what happens.
A few more comments on several other issues with this phone (that 'were' resolved.. (if you don't mind)lol !, 1st, like some other users, i was being charged 5 cents per text message instead of the 3 cents indicated. I called net10, they had me put in (5)series of code numbers, and that did the trick, i now am being charged the 3 cents per text message.
The last issue goes back to email, but this resolution has to do with sending 'text messages' to an email address..Not pictures. 'long story short'.. I write a message..Try to send it to an email address..Didn't work, phone displays 'email gateway'.. (advised by net10..Type in the numbers''500' for the 'gateway'), then press 'send', it worked !. Well, just wanted to 'add my 2 cents'..(3 cents for text now)lol !. Take care, have a good night !, Cell-a-holic.
Center Key acting up plus transferring pictures
by Harold Holguin
I got this phone and a case to clip it on my belt, every time I bend my waist for any reason the center key which is protuberant activates something on the phone, sometimes it even sends messages on its own. Yes I locked it but still does it.
I used the camera but cannot transfer pictures to my PC directly, I got the data cable but I need an additional software that Net 10 does not have and neither Samsung web site. Transferring pictures via Email works but it is expensive with net 10.
I didn't use a clip so I'm not familiar with the center key behavior. I did lock the phone so that it wouldn't do something similar in my pocket, and I don't think it has. Perhaps, when you're bending down, the unlock key also gets pressed? Don't know, just guessing.
Regarding the file transfer, I always transfer my photos to a computer via Bluetooth. It's fast and easy. You can mark multiple images, and transfer them one after another. I had to get a Bluetooth adapter for my laptop, but they're pretty inexpensive (as low as $1.64 when I last checked). Almost any one you choose should work, but, for the record, mine is an older Trendnet TBW-105UB.
