I have an old TX95C which no longer works.

It died about a year ago and was wondering if its possible to get it going again, its a great little phone.
Anyway there problems is as follows......freezes on starup at the Telecom logo after a minute or so it says resotring user data and restarts and then the process starts again. Is it possible to get software reloaded on it? By Telegistics or MFR or is the phone completely unsupported now?

You could send it to Telegistics to be assessed for repair but the cost of just the assessment, let alone any repairs, would probably be greater than its value.

Its probably best sent to the mobile phone graveyard ....

Yes $55 or $90 to get is Reflashed through Telegistics, probably not worth it.

MFR might still do it cheaper (they used to charge $25 for FW upgrades only) but I bet this has increased to $80 now


It's actually a not too bad phone but camera is shyte, I like the standard MMS that just downloads, none of this Lightsurf blah blah

I just wanted to see if i could get the phone going cheap and give it to my little sister. I think they are a great phone. The 115c was a few steps backwards and the camera i thought was pretty average .3MP could've been worse. The MMS system, while better than lightsurf is nothing compared to a nokia.

Might see what MFR can do. How do i get hold of them?

Don't you want the free one? I'll gladly take if from your hands if not.. I LOVE the Hyundais as I can do my QCELP hack on them. (clearer call quality) but paid good money for one off trademe which was r00ted. (liquid damage, worked for a whole week)
