I have a problem with my Samsung Evergreen slide phone. I randomly receive a error message "Message Waiting Off" I am not able to receive any text messages until I clear this message. I have to call the phone from a landline and leave a voice mail before I can clear this error. I have searched Koodo Community, Google and have called Customer Support to no avail. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I've got nothing. The thing is 6 years old and doesn't even run a smartphone OS so there's really nothing to do besides a hard reset. It'll wipe everything and you'll have to restore the phone. I'd personally get any newer phone as a replacement if that doesn't work.

As in you are incapable or just don't liike it or cannot type accurately? You can always get a Blackberry phone with a physical keyboard. I wouldn't get anyting less than a Passport or a Priv (android) though as anything else is utterly ancient in specs and doesn't perform so well with the latest updates. Unlocked AT&T models are selling on ebay for 600 and less.

I cannot use the touch screens as I have to  many calluses on my finger tips from many years of hard work. I contacted Samsung and apparently you have to go in and manually empty the message memory even though it was set to do so automatically.  Resetting the phone does not erase the message memory.
