Cell phone repair?

by satish_997 / May 25, 2008 4:58 AM PDT

My relatively new cell phone, only a couple weeks old, is faulty. It no longer has a ring when someone calls and the speaker doesn't work. It does, however, make sound whenever I press a button. This is extremely irritating. I'm definitely a noob when it comes to cell phones. How much is a reasonable price to pay to have this fixed? Does anyone have any suggestions in general as to what I can do besides paying to have someone fix it.

It's a Sprint KRZR that I bought on Craigslist, no chance of returning it. Sad

Read the warranty. The usual term: one year. Yours is only a few weeks? That's a bad buy.

I might have to talk to the guy I bought it from again, but I wouldn't be able to return it to Sprint, right? For one thing, I didn't buy it from them and second they aren't selling the KRZR anymore. If I can't return it to the guy I bought it from though, how bout repairing it? Would this be a relatively simple repair or uber expensive do you think?

downloaded from here. In the manual on page 44 of the pdf, 42 of the actual manual, you will see you have the setting to turn on and off the ringtones. I think this is what you're looking for. It sounds like you accidentally turned off the ringer. Also, while you are on the phone, press the up button to turn the volume up.


I think if you read the manual, you'll be ok.
