Samsung Gem

Why is the samsun gem discontinued? I look on the website, it isnt there I got in several Verizon sites it isnt there, they took it away. As a samsung gem owner I want help. I have problems with the phone and I dont think anyone will be able to help me. I need a new phone but I am only six months in my contract. The phone freezes and reboots itself and its an alright phone I just want something new and better than android.

(1) What can I do I am only six months in my contract and my phone acts up like once every two weeks it shuts down on its own and reboots itself

(2) I have kept up with the latest technology and I know that there are rumors saying that Verizon will have the Nokia Lumia 710 along with already having the htc trophy. I want a windows phone  htc trophy or the 710 (if it comes out) or the Blackberry Torch 9850. Any OS besides android. How would I get any of these phones. The help is much appreciated.

Oh, if you dont know the samsung gem came out in may of 2011 and its specs are:

  • Android™ Eclair

Display

  • WQVGA
  • 3.2” Display
  • Touch Screen

Camera

  • 3.2MP Camera

FYI the Samsung Gem was never sold by Verizon Wireless directly. The phone was only sold through third party retailers.

Is the phone acting like it is running out of internal memory space? Please be specific and hopefully the other customers including myselfcwho frequent this peer to peer forum can offer some assistance.

What was the address of the store that you purchased the phone at?

Freezing and rebooting can also been an application conflict. Did load any new apps before the freezing and rebooting started? If so please, uninstall the most recently installed apps. Then slowly add back those same apps. Try an space them out to one app per day or two and test each one to see if the rebooting and freezing returns.

A used device from a third party like ebay, full retal price or add a line are your only options now. Unless you can get a replacement device, but it will either the same model or similar. You won't get a windows phone or a blackberry that way.

You will not get a new phone unless you qualify for an upgrade. End of story... unless you purchase it through a third party and just buy the phone outright. Being less than one year old. the phone would be under warranty. The first step towards addressing your issue would be to run a full master reset on the phone, if you can't tie the issue to any specific apps. What you are experiencing is software related, not hardware. Master reset will resolve any software issue with your phone.
