My daughter has a Samsung C3050 (slide open keyboard) phone. It runs on the Vodafone network. The phone has gone "bung" in that it cannot receive or make phone calls. The text facility works - both send and receive.

Does anyone know whether that type of problem can be fixed?

Where, in Auckland, would be the best place to get it fixed?

How much would/should a repair cost?

The phone is about two years old. It has not been dropped or maltreated. Just - that the phone voice calls facility has gone.

Is there any possibility that it is a phone setting "issue"?

Thanks for any help and/or suggestions.

Did some 'playing about" myself and whooo hooo - the phone seems OK now! Put my sim in her phone - but on way noticed heaps of dirt/dust/cobwebs/fly dirt/dead hedghogs and so did a big clean up. Tested phone for all types of facilities - like make call from it, make call to it, the thing that was wrong with it. All seems OK now.
So - I now have another (near new) phone. She went off in a panic and bought a new Smart Phone. Not very smart I say!!!!!!!! Hahaha.
Just shows that a bit of noseying about can work qonders.
No help now needed.

Good stuff. If you didn't have plans to pay for someone to look and say "no fix", doing a bit of look around yourself won't hurt.
