Phone will not receive or transmit but power is on

Phone acts like it is in flight mode but the airplane icon is not showing. The only way I can get it to work is to put it in flight mode, try to make a call, and then press "yes" to de-activate the flight mode when it asks. It will work for a while, and then it does the same thing without warning. Phone is only 2 weeks old. thanks, Gerald Miller

HI Jayeff;

It performs as though it is in flight mode but it is not activated. I have to activate flight mode, then I attempt to make a call. When I do, it ask if I want to exit flight mode. I press "yes" and then it works for a while until it changes back on its own. When it is in flight mode, there is an airplane icon on the display screen. When this problem occurs there is no icon to indicate it being in flight mode, though it acts as though it is. The only way I know it has changed is when I try to make a call. Something seems to be triggering it but I have not figured out what it could be. Anyway, thanks for your help.

Hi,

Wondering if you should try a hard reset. Dont forget if yyou do you will lose all your data and settings. Backup first.

Here's a link. http://www.hard-reset.com/nokia-6555-har...

If that 's no good check your warranty details and contact the manufacturer.

Hi,

In Menu > Settings> Phone there is a setting called Flight Query which, taken from the user guide, states:

Flight query > On — the phone asks whether to use the flight profile every time when switched on. With flight profile all radio connections are switched off. The flight profile should be used in areas sensitive to radio emissions.

I'm wondering if this should be switched OFF.
