    Default "singtel menu is ready for use"

    guys,

    i have tried googling but no one seems to be answering the people asking that question.

    there is a sony ericsson phone with a hello! sim card. every few seconds this stupid thing that says "singtel menu is ready for use" pops up.

    i have no idea how to turn it off, and it's really irritating. anyone knows how?

    Take the battery out of the phone.

    Call Singtel and give them a piece of your mind.
    Nothing to do with the phone, it's the service provider.

    i think it's from the SIM card. btw, is it a 3G SIM card? probably singtel added their own menus in the SIM card. but i thought the pop-up is one time only?

    lol, that's true.

    i mean, obviously it's caused by them, but no one else is getting this problem?

    i am wondering.. because it seems like an automated thing.

    the thing is, it lights up the phone screen.. naturally battery will drain, etc.

    plus i think when smsing it will pop up.....

    oh, i'm using m1 myself.... mainly because it's very easy to top up via internet when overseas.

    just asking for someone else, since i've seen the problem and know how to describe it.

    yes, it is probably a 3g sim card, based on searches i've done regarding this issue.

    no leh.. it keeps popping up.

    even on a nokia 1661 and an older sony ericsson phone. but now with current model being used with that sim card (SE w302) apparently the frequency is a lot more.

    anyways, i have emailed singtel regarding the issue, will let you guys know if i get any update.

    its from the sim card
    im using a pocket pc phone and on my singtel startup services,there's this service stk something iirc
    i had to disable that to prevent the singtel startup menu from coming up
    best is to ask singtel how to disable it imho

    don't u just love this kind of FOS reply??? they stop short of telling you : we also don't know what the hell is going on and we are going home..pls call ericsson and stop bugging us...we only sell phone and we don't care what happen to the damn phone...

    a lot of times i solve my prob by goggling rather then calling them..they even have the chick to sometimes tell me they don't know how to use the phone
