Question

I used Navigator whilst on holiday to great effect but now I can't find it on my phone?

The navigator app logo is nowhere to be seen on the phone. Is it possible to reset to factory as this app was present when I got the phone and I can't see it anywhere in the Apps Store? I have only had the phone for 5/6 weeks and the app has also disappeared from by Galaxy TAB 10.1 which I have had for 8 months?

Thank you Samsung. I got a old looking charger nothing else. The box was not opened in front of me. Also there seemed to be a lot of finger prints on the face of the phone. It would only receive calls now and then, despite people calling me. It was repaired but now will not sync to a computer since the repair, personally I think somebody else has had this phone and taken it back to the shop and its been resold to me as new.

Hi Samantha,

Yes, there should be a light at the top of your phone that lights up automatically when it is charging.

If there is no light appearing on your phone it would suggest the phone has a fault and you should ring our technical support team on 0330 7267864.

Hi Robain,

There are only certain applications that can be saved to a memory card. Alot of applications are only made to be saved to phone memory. You can move applications from your phone to a memory card by following these instructions:

Go to settings > Scroll across to the left to view ‘All Applications’ > Select the application you wish to move to your memory/SD card > If it is possible to move the app to the card the option will be on the screen, if the option is not there it will be because that particular app can only be saved to phone memory.

Hope this helps,

Thanks

Question

Why is the SD card identified as 'emulated' in my Samsung Galaxy Fame?

I cannot move any apps from the phone to the sd card - even those that I have downloaded. The sd card is said to be emulated and the operation is therefore not allowed.

Hi Dave,

It is not possible to save certain applications to your SD card. The only way of knowing whether an application can be saved to the SD card is by following these instructions:

Go to settings > Scroll down to Application manager > Slide the screen across twice to view ‘All Apps’ > Select the app you would like to move > If the application can be moved to your SD card the option ‘Move to SD card’ will be displayed on the screen, if this option is not there then it cannot be moved.

Please note, to free up more space on your phone memory for applications we recommend storing media files such as photos, music, and videos to your SD card.

It will work OK with a Class 4 card in it, but some large files may take longer to write than if you use a Class 6 or Class 10.... we're only talking fractions of a second difference here when, for example, you want to save a photo to the card. I doubt that you will notice much difference between a Class 4 and Class 10 in practice

Hi,

If your phone’s volume is on and the ‘Screen Lock Sound’ is ticked in the sounds settings, it may be a slight software confliction causing this to not work.

These software issues can be easily resolved by performing a factory reset on your device.
You can perform a factory reset on your device by navigating to the following menu:

Settings > Backup and reset > Factory data reset

Please note you will lose all applications and saved data, including your Google account, so ensure that you back up your device prior to performing the reset. This may help resolve any issues you are having.

If you continue to experience these issues after the reset please contact our Technical Support Team for further assistance on 0330 7267864.
