Tips for Troubleshooting

A popular option when dealing with an issue with your phone is to turn it off, remove the battery (if it is detachable), and wait a few minutes.

Then you may put the battery back in and turn on the phone again.

It may take up to 5-10 minutes for the phone to reconnect to the network and register itself.

Many times, this will resolve the situation.

Due to the fact that many phone functions differ from one model to another, following the advice in the phone user manual can also help you resolve a variety of issues.

Twigby sells the phone, and the user manual may be found at twigby.net/manuals if you purchased it from them.
