BB Bold 9000 :: Call Failed - Cant Make Or Receive Ingoing Outgoing Calls - Texts But Internet - Email Still Works Fine

Mar 20, 2010

i just purchased a replacement bb bold 9000 off ebay (it's an unlocked at&t handset that i bought after my bb bold got stolen... total bummer) and it was working fine all week up until last night when it stopped being able to handle incoming and outgoing calls and texts. The internet and email functions still work which is very peculiar. also some further info, when i put my sim card into another handset (in this case a nokia e65) all my normal call functions work and when i put another sim card in the bold the same thing happens (when i try to make a call it instantly pops up with a call failed warning). another thing is the bold shows full service coverage... currently the bold about shows... v4.6.0.304 (Platform im on australia and for some reason i cant update the os to v5

BB Bold 9700 :: Failed Calls & Lock Ups - Volume On Calls Is Really Low

Feb 13, 2010

I have been a BB lover for years. My Curve 5320 served me well and I loved it. When the new Bold 9700 was released I was one of the first to get it b/c businesses were offered the opportunity to get it before individuals. I was so excited about 3G, it's sleek look, etc. My excitement has officially crashed and burned. When placing calls it will fail repeatedly before even dialing the number. It will fail during calls up to 5 and 6 times in a few minute period, which is HORRIBLE during business calls. It will lock up when I'm trying to move between apps, it will spontaneously shut itself off. I'm feeling like my BB is possessed. This is my second 9700. The first the E key would stick or repeat 20 times on a text and the calls would fail, so they diligently sent me a new one. Thankfully, I no longer have to edit every text for 100 e's (i'm stopping @ theeeeeee storeeeeeeeeeee is theeeeeeereeeeeee anything you neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed), but the failed calls thing is really pissing me off! Also, the volume on calls is really low in comparison to my Curve. To top it off, the 3G speed seems as slow as, if not slower than my former EDGE. I am hoping and praying that a software upgrade will fix all of these issues, but if it doesn't are there any suggestions as to what i can do? Other than switching to an iPhone? I for one happen to love my Qwerty keyboard and am not exactly fond of the on-screen keyboards.

BB Bold 9700 :: UMA Preferred And Failed Calls

Apr 19, 2010

I wasn't too happy today when somebody rear ended my car and I was trying to make important phone calls..."WiFi preferred" selected, but the 9700 (OS 593) choose a 1 bar UMA over a 4.5 bar cell signal... Failed calls galore... Literally had to stop what I was doing and tell the 9700 to use the obviously better cell signal...

BB Bold 9000 :: Where Have Missed Calls Vanished Too

Feb 4, 2010

I have the Blackberry Bold on the Vodafone UK network.Last week once it became available , I updated to the new S/ware.On the whole I have had no problems , however I have noticed that my battery life is most definitely not as good as before the update.The one thing I have noticed is that my Missed Calls Log has vanished , & I just can't seem to get it back.

On the old s/ware , if I couldn't take a call I just had to then press the green button & there would automatically be a list of that , & all other missed calls.

Now when someone calls & I choose not to take it , if I then press close , however then press the green key to see the log , the missed call log is not there. All that's displayed is the actual Call Log. I agree that the number that called me is there with the missed call symbol next to it , however this is in the complete call log.

How van I retrieve this Missed Call Log only? In my line of work , it is certainly possible that I will legitimately miss calls during the course of the day. It will become very annoying if I can now not view them at a glance.

BB Bold 9000 :: Calls Failing Invalid Sim Card

Jul 29, 2010

I've been having issues with my calls failing for about a week or two now. It doesn't happen every phone call. But when it does, it seems to be at the 0:22 or 2:00 mark of the call. Quite strange. Once it happens, it continues every call afterward until i do a battery pull.

And since I updated to a couple days ago, twice or three times it's said "Invalid SIM Card" and I have to reboot my phone. Not sure the reasoning behind this. I saw a couple threads in the Storm and Curve boards but, didn't see any solutions. So, thought I'd ask here to see if anyone else has had similar issues.

BB Bold 9000 :: SIM Card Lost / No Calls And Text Messages With New One

Feb 6, 2010

I bought my blackberry about 4 months ago and it has been working fine with SIM cards from different countries, until now! My provider is O2, and I lost my SIM card and so I had to get a new one to replace it, and after it has been registered and everything sorted out from the provider's side, I found out I cant make any calls, send texts nor receive calls on my phone! Sim card works fine, as I have tried using it on a different handset. So it is my blackberry. Is it the settings I have to change? I hope I don't have to send it for repair.

BB Bold 9000 :: Calls Fails After 20 Secs And Cannot Send Text Messages

Feb 21, 2010

Since Friday I've been unable to hold a phone call for longer than 20 seconds and been unable to send text messages. The call fails every time at exactly 10 or 20 seconds. This applies whether the call is incoming or outgoing. I have tried pulling the battery and that fixes the problem temporarily but it usually returns within about five minutes. I am still able to receive text messages.

IPhone :: Drop Calls - When Talking On Long Calls 20+ Minutes With Full Bars Phone Will Just Cut Off And Say Call Failed

Feb 10, 2010

I live in Downtown Los Angeles, so reception isn't a problem. I usually always get full bars. However, when talking on long phone calls 20+ minutes with full bars, my phone will just cut off and say call failed. Then I have no reception, then it just comes back.

Is this a iPhone issue or a ATT issue? I have an odd suspicion it's my phone because it occurs so frequently, but Ive had difficulty asking the apple bar to replace my phone just because of reception issues.

BB Bold 9000 :: Why Cant Rim Develop A Bold 9xxx With The Body Of Bold 9000

Jan 23, 2010

Why can't RIM develop a Bold 9xxx with the body of the Bold 9000 with larger memory, Trackpad, better camera? They've done it with the Tour and Curve. Plus they've got all the parts available already, just need a little engineering to fit the trackpad and everything else. C'mon RIM. We know you can do it. I'm sure you'd sell millions of them.

BB Bold 9000 :: Bold 9000 VS Curve 8530 / Does One Perform Better Than Other?

Mar 4, 2010

Quick question. I am starting a new Job and they are getting me a superbasic Perl. I need this for work and so I will be forking some dough out of my pocket to get one of the two following phones: Bold 9000 (I'll pay 100$ Canadian, not Us) Curve 8530 (pay 24.99$ Canadian). I am very used to the Iphone and HTC Touch Pro 2 (not trying to start a flaming/argument/anything else , its just what i'm used to). I am very used to browsing with the other phones and I have heard that BB phones are not up to par, so my expectations will be low. Out of the two phones however, does one perform better than the other (Curve 8530 vs Bold 9000)? Out of the two phones, which one do you recommend overall. I have read that the Bold 9000 even though it is older, it still outperforms the 8530...

BB Bold 9000 :: Seeking Help For Broken Bold 9000 Screen

Aug 30, 2010

I dropped my BlackBerry Bold 9000 on the weekend and damaged the LCD screen. The device still works, but two thirds of the LCD is now white and there's what looks like an inkblot on the left side of the screen. I'd like to try to fix it, but don't really want to shell out a lot of $ to do so --- I'm a month away from upgrading.Does anyone have any suggestions, or perhaps a dead BlackBerry with a working screen that you're willing to part with? A DIY repair -- this is out of warranty anyway -- looks straightforward, but I'm not sure I want to spend the $100 or so for a new OEM part to replace the LCD screen.

BB Bold 9000 :: Bold 9000 Red Light / No Power On

Sep 18, 2010

A few days ago I pulled my phone out of the holster and It was really hot and when i looked at it i realized it was off, and wouldnt turn back on. just a red light comes on like normal upon a battery pull but after it turns off the red light comes back on again once more then stays off for good. unless i plug it in then it comes on and goes off all the time. I got it powered back up yesterday but then it did it again. Today I plugged it in and I saw a picture of a battery come up on the screen showing it as empty, i was hoping that meant it might charge up. but no such luck. My main objective is just to get the phone up long enough to back up the info on the phone.

Sep 29, 2012

My blackberry bold 9700 stop functioning one day so I contacted local authorised dealer in Vadodara Jasmine dealers they suggested me to contact authorsed service station Remington India in Alkapuri Vadodara.. They denied to provide service as my phone was purchaed from outside India. So i contached blackberry customer service they guided me to visit nearest authorised dealer. I contached Blackberry Experience Store in Ahmedabad. They charged Rs.5000/- and returned me the phone. But the Key pad was not functined well So I contachede onceagain for the problem. they serviced the phone and returned me the phone. When I received phone back the camera was not working so I further contacted the dealer. After inspection they told me that the IC of camera is not working and it will cost further Rs/1300. So I denied to get it repaired and ask back my phone. When I receive my phone another problem of microphoe has found. and now i am unable to talk with the phone to any body..

After charging such a big amount like Rs.5000/- my phoe is not working properly and more and more problem are found in the phone.
