First of all, I apologize if this topic has been address already on another thread. I am not only new to my first Smartphone ever, but this is also the first Forum I have ever signed up for, so I am new to everything.
I have the Samsung Galaxy S3 (Verizon) on 4.0.4. When I call to retrieve my voicemails and hit the show keypad button, the minute to try to enter my password the screen goes black and returns once I let my finger off of the screen, but then goes black again when I try to enter a number.
Is this a known bug or am I doing something wrong?
the other way to fix this is to press the phone icon to bring up the dialer. Next hit the menu key and go to call settings. Scroll down to voicemail settings. This will bring up a box with the *86. After the *86 place one or two commas, then type in your passcode. After doing this, the next time you have the voice mail icon in the notification bar, swipe the notification area to get the drop down box and hit the voicemail notification and then it will dial the voicemail number. The commas put in a pause and then it sends your passcode.
I had this bad on the device I returned. Today was the first day it has happend on my new SGS3. It is frustrating. It seems like even a shadow hitting the proximity sensor shuts off the screen. Is there any where to adjust the sensitivity?
Just got this phone and I have the disappearing keyboard problem while accessing voicemail. Cannot findthemenu button after pressing the phone icon and cannot find proximity sensor. Someone please help before I go crazy!
