I have been going through various posts and websites. It looks like we can't customize email icons due to OS 5.0 security restriction and can say other way that OS 5.0 system files are read only!But I would still check to see if anyone succeeded in customizing email icons for Bold
I am trying to get a weather icon set up on my Bold. I have subscribed to the BB push service, identified my city, have selected "regular update" as opposed to "email option". I get a message the weather will be updated shortly, but nothing appears on my home screen. Have looked at other messages on this forum, but the responses don't make any sense to me.
I've had the phone for about a week and I absolutely love it except that at seemingly random moments my phone will block the viewing of any and all of my SMS messages saying "Content protection is enabled". It will show up at the beginning of newly received messages and even in the middle of real-time conversations between someone else and I and then I have to wait for the message to "go away" so I can read what the response was and continue the conversation. Is it something I'm doing? A default phone feature? Is anyone else experiencing this issue or at least know how to solve it?
How can I turn off the auto push feature for emails on my BB Bold 9780? Is it possible to download emails manually?
When I delete emails on my BB, I noticed that the emails get downloaded again when I access my Mac Mail. Likewise, when I've deleted emails from my mac, they get downloaded again on my BB. How can I configure my BB and mac in such a way that the emails will not get downloaded from the server again after deleting?
Is there anyway to revert back to the old way of unlocking the bold, like from early 5.0 OS? like when you were supposed to hold * and the call button, because I absolutely despise this new mute button procedure and my mute button on my bold is already becoming unresponsive.Basically I'm wondering if perhaps there's a application that can switch them or maybe even a way to configure a different button on my bold to mute because as it is the default button (top left of the bold) is pretty much becoming unresponsive on my phone and I don't really want to get locked out.
With the new 5.0's rolling out, our keyboard feature seems to be done away with. Some of us, like me, do not have the best mute button. If I don't hit mine just right it doesn't work. Sometimes it may take 5-6 presses.
A new shortcut in 184.108.40.206? I know a lot of users on here have set one of their convenience key's for the "Switch application" feature well, RIM has decided it prudent to add it in for you. If you're using .247 hold the Blackberry Menu Key. I noticed this by accident, and I already tried on .237 doesn't work sorry. Alternatively, you could also just hold the alt key and press esc I guess but I thought I'd share my findings?
Friend and i have 2 identical blackberry bold with same o.s 4.6.167 however I dont have the 'wireless update' feature Its kind of annoying. I'd like to have it if possible but am confused on why i dont have it.
Before you start reading, please understand that I am a security freak and would like other security gurus to help me out with my dilemma. I'm new to BlackBerry phones, but not a newbie in the whole tech scene. The bold paragraph includes the questions that I really want to know more about.Okay here it goes. I came from an original iPhone and with OS 1.0 we couldn't do secure wipes. We actually had to fill up the drive with music and videos so that it would overwrite any information. Had to do this many many times (5-10x times) too, because just filling it up once wasn't enough to write over data. But with 2.0, Apple made it to where you can have the iPhone do a secure erase by having it write zeros on the drive. It took a while (1 hour or so), but it got the job done.Well, I've grown up now and I've moved to the BlackBerry platform. I started out last year with the Bold and will be moving to the Curve 8900. But before I do, the wife wants me to sell the Bold first. But before I sell it, I want to secure wipe everything on it. All the DIY guides say to go into options>security>and wipe the device and type the word "blackberry". Great! Now I know how to do it.But what I want to know now is how secure is this method of wiping? Can someone, if anyone, restore my contacts, passwords, or anything that was stored? Should I do to the Bold what I did to my original iPhone and fill it up with data and wipe the device 5 times or so?
I'm missing the MMS feature/link/button however you want to call it on my bold. I'm running v220.127.116.11 (platform 18.104.22.168) East Asia version, i was thinking that its my OS. BUT it can't be, i'm sure people in East Asia uses MMS! So the question is, is it my phone? or does it have to do with my service provider? When i say service provider, do i need to actually tell them that i want the MMS service. and only than the MMS feature will show up?
i updated my app world, and now whenever i open it, i get a message that "my blackberry identity needs to be updated, " then when i try to update it, it says Blackberry Identity Installation failed, and app world closes.
When I try to go into appsth emessage installing blackberry identity is still showing at 100. Even pressing cancel does not let me out of it.I have been online and created blackberry id but am still having the same problem
Every time I got to do a wireless upgrade or to check and see if one is available, I have to manually stop it bc it just freezes and never comes back with a answer. My main reason is to get the visual voicemail icon on my phone. Any ideas?
I am having troubles downloading apps on my new bold 9700. When i go to through blackberry app world i get a message saying: A blackberry identity update is needed. Would you like to install it now. I respond yes and then it says BlackBerry identity installation failed. try again later.
Loaded blackberry desktop up and it asked me to update my bold I did. Using 22.214.171.124 now and none of my ringers work I get no audible ring with any feature. When viewing videos I need to activate handsete to get the sound to play through the speaker. Any ideas on what may have caused this?
my bold will not turn on. i was on a call and all of a sudden the screen froze. i tried shutting it down but it wouldn't so i took out a battery and now it wont turn back on. i tired a different charger, i plugged my usb cable and hooked it up to my PC still it wont turn back on the device just acts as if there is no battery in there right now. no screen, no LED light..nothing at all
when i am not using my phone the screen just remains lit up like a xmas tree.I have changed the settings for it to auto dim after 10seconds and this worked ok last night.
i put the phone on charge as normal and come to work this morning and the screen is doing the same again.I have it on my desk at the moment so nothing is toching the buttons or track ball.Yet once again the screen is lit up on full power?
Got my bold last night, updated to .237, got some themes and apps etc.I got into the habbit of closing apps using the bb button and hitting close, but when I reboot the phone (alt rshift del), it takes roughly 10 minutes to turn back on.
Usually its before that if I take it and plug it into the usb cord connected to my computer, but is there any reason why its doing this?
My new Bold was working fine up until a few days ago when the WiFi connection has turned itself off. I try and turn it back on but it does nothing, I have even tried turning it back on by "scanning for networks" and then the phone asks me if i want to turn the WiFi on to preform the scan; still nothing.
