Some users are reporting "Unable to install all contents 1 code: 400" appear repeatedly.
The root cause is actively under investigation and devices should not be replaced based on this behavior. Follow these steps to resolve:
Ensure handset is on Sprint mobile data (not Wi-Fi)
Open phone dialer and enter ##BRAND# and select YES. This will resend the ID payload to the handset without removing any personal data.
If the handset is in weak Sprint coverage or if the error returns, please to move to a location in good Sprint network coverage and try again.
If ##BRAND# does not resolve the behavior and error 400 continues to appear, perform a full factory data reset.
Settings > General management > Reset > Factory Data Reset
This communication will be updated as root cause is identified.
Why is my phone freezing, rebooting, draining my battery, and/or slow?
One common root cause of concerns such as freezing, random restarts, battery drain, sluggish or random actions, unexpected errors, or other unexpected behaviors are 3 rd party apps.
Safe mode prevents 3 rd party apps from initializing, allowing devices to be tested without 3 rd party interference.
Step 1 – Unmount the Memory Card
Similar to 3 rd party apps, corrupt, damaged, or performance-impacting memory cards can cause freezing, random actions, etc. The first step in the Safe Mode Experience is to unmount the memory card and retest the device.
Remember: Samsung strongly recommends the customer use a class 10 or newer memory card for best results.
Step 2 – Retest in Safe Mode
Once the memory card has been eliminated as the root cause, using safe mode will help eliminate a 3 rd party app as the root cause. If the concern doesn’t persist in safe mode, the root cause is a 3 rd party app.
Tip: Safe mode doesn’t pinpoint which 3 rd party app is responsible. Test by removing any recently added or updated applications and retest.
Step 3– Reset All Settings
Once the memory card and 3 rd party apps have been eliminated as the root cause, reset all settings will be beneficial for testing prior to a factory data reset.
Tip: Resetting all settings and/or resetting network settings may delete saved Wi-Fi connections, Bluetooth pairings, etc.
