Power cycle your phone and try again.
I have become very familiar with the "call failed: network busy" error message everytime I make a phone call. I have a V635 and on Cingular network. When I goto Network-> Available Networks, I see 2 cingular signals. One of them is 310-380 and 310-170. I can register to 310-170 and my phone will work and can dial calls. Then my phone will keep defaulting back to 310-380, and I will always get the network busy error. This has been going on for 2 days already and I think its a problem with my phone.
Ive done everything imaginable to the phone. I think ive power cycled it more than 20x already.
samething has happened to my e398. after putting in a new battery it wouldnt detect a network, later on it did, but everytime i try to make a call it says calll failed, and when i tried setting upm a new network it says network busy. someone please help. i put the sim in anotehr phone and it worked on that phone.
Every time I call tech support the standard answer is to go into network settings and to set it to manual and select a carrier from there.
Not necessarily. I live in a college town and when the students come back I usually can't make a call for 2-3 days at least. So, consider if there's a local event that could lead to a network congestion.Originally Posted by chanmanx2k
Really? With me it's "your phone is busted, get a new one". But that must be because I'm out of contract.Originally Posted by jrv331
has it occurred to any of you the network may actually be busy in that area? the only way to really tell/test, is to stick ur sim card in a different phone and try.
I put the "HO" back in "HOFO"
There's no way it could be your phone. That must be the network. Just try calling at a different time than usual.Originally Posted by chanmanx2k
I DON'T HAVE A SIGNATURE....SORRY
i did just that and it worked fine in another phoneOriginally Posted by Paolo
I've gotten the same error, but under different (I think?) circumstances--I live in the 916 area code but dial under a 510 area code phone number (I'm with Cingular); I noticed that when the roam icon is visible (I assume I'm pulling an AT&T tower, because my wife's phone--also Cingular--when in roam in the same proximity as my phone, displays AT&T) and I attempt to dial a 510 number (as such, w/o the need to dial the area code first since my phone number is 510) from my home, I get the "Call Failed--Network Busy" message. However, with the roam icon still lit I can complete a call to a non-510 number. Once the roam icon disappears (and I assume, my phone is now pulling a signal from a Cingular tower--and yes I know that technically, Cingular and AT&T are supposed to be one big happy family), I can successfully complete a call to a 510 number.
I'm getting the same message today and i'm in 443 area code only thing is this is the second time this has happened. I have no Idea whats going on because there are no events in the city of Baltimore today. Also I cannot Receive or send texts of any kind.
