BB Bold 9650 :: Pressing Red Phone Button Shuts Off Phone And Then It Reboots
Aug 17, 2010
This just started happening on Saturday night. I would press the red phone button to turn off my phone and within 15-25 seconds my phone reboots itself. I have the Bold 9650 OS 188.8.131.529. Also on Sunday afternoon I dialed *228 (Verizon) to update my roaming capabilities.it was successful and after about 30 seconds by phone rebooted itself. Yes, I have done a battery pull.
I got my 1020 last week (Disclaimer: AT&T employee in a corporate store). It's great, except that I have to have my phone PIN locked. With the addition of the Nokia camera software and it being the default, I have to unlock my phone before it goes into the camera. If I switch the button to the standard WP camera app, I can take photos while unlocked.
I have problem with waking the phone with power/lock button. Every few hours (for my usage once a day) the phone doesn't wake after locking. I have to press and hold power/lock button for a few seconds to manualy restart it. I know that N5 has notorious problems with power/lock button but as far as I know its problem with phone not going to sleep. I don't have problem with that.
I noticed this after an update to M. I am on XtraSmooth 29.10 build with RacerKernel 28.10. DT2W dissabled. Also i have the usual problem of turning screen on after calls. For me the phone sometimes doesn't turn on until the other person ends the call. Do I need to replace the power/lock button?
I have a Nexus 5 with Android 4.4.4 and CyanogenMod 11. Like always, it had been working really find untill today, when it started to reboot and entered in a loop. I found out that it was because the power button was broken and with the lightest touch, it would activate. Searching through the Internet I found out that many people happen to have this problem. I tried to disable the power button editing a file that is found under /system/usr/keylayout/qpnp_pon.kl, where I had to simply comment the line where the power button was.
Now, if I click the power button it doesn't happen anything, like I was expecting, but after 30 seconds of clicking it, it shuts down and it reboots like if it was an internal error or someting similar that caused that reboot.Is it possible that disabling it the way I did could cause any type of problem that made it reboot after touching it?
I know it's an internal problem or something like this because when I touch it, it doesn't lock the screen or show the power menu, so the button itself is kind of "disabled", but it keeps causing this problem.
I have a BB bold 9780 since 2 years. Since 3 months my BB shutdowns without reason, and sometimes when it reboots the trackpad doesn't work. So I have to reboot (remove battery) until the trackpad reworks.
i purchased by new Blackberry 9650 from Verizon Wireless by ordering it online....the problem is my phone reboots itself with no specific reason many times a day. I tried it bu removing media card for 2-3 days but didn't find the solution and it still reboots.
just recently my Bold 9930 has had the habit of rebooting whenever I plug it into either my car outlet, or the charger that came with the phone. It doesn't happen all the time, but I'd say it happens about 25% of the time I go to plug the phone in.I'm running the highest official OS (184.108.40.2060) on Verizon, and did not experience this issue with the previous OS. I didn't experience this issue right after I upgraded, it was about 3 weeks after that update came out, and nothing happened to the phone.
Has anybody else experienced failures with this phone? I replaced my curve with a 9700 on an upgrade, only to have the brand new Bold 9700 completely die after 6 days. The next one lasted 14 days, and now I sit with my third broken 9700 that went a whopping 2 days.
Every time, the phone will be sending a text and then shut itself off. When I try to do a hard restart by pulling the battery, I get a constantly glowing red LED for a few seconds.Before getting the third phone, I had my SIM card replaced, memory card replaced, and got a whole new set of charging cords. Heck, I hadn't even charged it since I picked it up...
not sure if my device is operating correctly so want to check with others here. i'm using the default 'precision zen' theme and when pressing the 'menu' button, the clock is displayed next to the battery icon with the network name in the middle on the same line as the wifi icon.is that correct? i was sure the clock wasn't over to the left before!
Bold 9700 running 6.0, battery suddenly drains dies and phone shuts off, even though there is charge left.I've made sure to exit and close apps so they don't drain in the background.Tried replacing the phone through the carrier.
I am trying to be proactive here. I have a Tour 960 and am waiting for the 9650. I understand there is a Device Transfer Wizard in DM. My question is what do I do first? Do I activate the phone with Sprint first and then use the Device transfer Wizard to move my applications from the old to the new phone or vice versa? I now sync to Outlook so am not concerned about calendar or contacts.
I'm just bought bold 9650 yesterday, internet connection is good, incoming call and outgoing call work clearly, but i can't send any sms to any other number, it always failed and got a Red X with warning "Invalid Mandatory Information".I know that because a wrong sms center number. But the problem is, I cannot found where to set this sms center number on Bold 9650. I have looking for in setting menu.In the sms text setting, the only option is :
- Conversation Style
- Show Names
- Press Enter Key To Send
- Delivery Report
- Data Coding (default is Ascii)
- Callback Number (default is 000000000000?
- Disable AutoText
How to setting the sms center number is? Please help me friend.
I often hear many people complaining or wanting to have the Bold 9650 look like the Bold 9700. I found this picture of the Tour 2 9650 splitting with the 9700 Bold to show the differences between of the Bold 9650 if it stays the same without changes, this is what the difference would be compared to the Bold 9700.as you can see, the only difference if the Bold 9650 stays the same as we see here when the final release comes, is that the Bold 9650 has a somewhat larger bezel VS the 9700 Bold. Other then that, you can see from the pic, nothing else is different on the face of the phones in looks.just thought it was pretty interesting(left side is the 9650, right side is the 9700.
Im trying to figure out if i should just return this phone, this is my second bold, "auto focus problem was other problem". I've had this phone for around three months, three or four times it has happened, i will be in the middle of a call and i will hear nothing, i look at the phone and its locked up, then solid red light, then phone reboots. Phone works fine for three or four weeks. i never had this problem with my curve 8320. I think its a app that might be auto updating on its own but wanted to see if anyone else is having same problem.
I'm planning to buy two new 9650s today on-line from Verizon. I will be replacing two 8330s. I have always gone into the store to purchase my cell phones, but I'm thinking with some help from the folks here I can pull this off myself.I guess my biggest question is how do I get the service switched from my 8330s to the new phones??
Can I do this with DM and the MyVerizon page only or do I need to call someone at Verizon?And who do I call and what do I ask them ?
I use the Phone Calls Only profile when I go to bed (I figure if it's important someone will call me, I don't want texts, facebook and emails waking me up).I used this profile on the Tour and it worked great.Just tried it last night on the bold and BBMs and emails were not silent, however, my sound settings are all identical to what they were on my tour. My understanding is the profile Phone Calls Only overrides any settings you have, and only makes noise if the phone rings. This was not the case.Is my phone defective, is do I need to do something else to set this up on my Bold?
Can anyone tell me what a white phone icon means in the Call Log? My BF just got the Bold and asked what the white phone icon in the call log was for. I had never seen it and then looked at my phone and I also have a white telephone icon alongside one of my missed calls.Anyone know what it indicates? Other missed, received, or placed calls have the blue, green or gold.
My friends iphone 4 left his phone charged and suddenly his phone shut down and cant be on anymore. it is all blackscreen ... the blackscreen is like when ur phone is off. my friends phone can go to DFU mode i tried restore it using itunes. but it keep give me error code and i have try to solve all the error code but it still cant works ...
I've noticed during a conversation if I say "yes" or "uh-uh" (or make any comment) it cuts out the other person, almost like when call waiting clicks in or you get the notification that a text came in. It's long enough that I miss a word or two. It's not like the other folks where their fingers were over the mic. It's like you can't come close to saying a word unless the other person is completely silent for a few seconds.
9650 is my first BB ever. I'm generally happy with it.A few questions. Does anyone know how to get contacts, calender entries, memo's, tasks, etc into the phone through the use of a laptop? The CD-ROM that came with it wasn't recognized by my laptop for some reason so I just downloaded Desktop Manager from the BB website. I thought the manager would have the fields for this and I could just syncronize it with the laptop. To my disappointment this was not the case, apparently D.Manager is just a backup tool.I called Sprint and I was told I could use Gmail to enter contacts which is what I have been slowly doing. Oh yal, I don't have Microsoft Outlook either.Does anyone know of some software or something that can help me get ALL of the above mentioned item information into the phone thru my computer?Also, can anyone tell me why my battery runs out of a full charge rather quickly?? I have to charge it everyday and that's because I hardly make or receive calls. I think I use the phone (browser, messaging, etc) less than the average person. By the way I set my brightness to 50 and the back lighting time to 10 seconds which I think are pretty generous settings to help save battery energy. Yet the phone still needs a charge everyday. Reviews say it will last 4 to 5 days on standby. Not the case for me at all.Lastly, do any 9650 Sprint owners out there notice the end key (red) to be kinda faded?? Wondering if Igot a lemon in that respect, my red keys look faded and the white of the buttons (majority of keypad) lean towards a whitish-orangeish hue instead of what looks like the brighter whitish-blueish hue. Anyone know what I'm talking about?
1) Does anyone know what the tiny icon on the top portion of the home screen that looks like a miniture BB phone with a tiny button on its side means? Showed up yesterday. 2) Yesterday I had a line that stated "Mike Grasso's Network" on the home screen, now that's gone.
If I connect to gmail via the browser on my Bold, when I hit "login" the phone reboots. The screen goes black, and there's a long error message, which stays only briefly on the screen. The first line of it says something like ARM1 DAL critical failure. Then it completely shuts down and starts up again.I can get to any other website via the phone's web browser, and I can also access my gmail account using the gmail app.I'm running the most recent version of software for the Bold 9650.
This problem began when I tried to access my gmail account while sitting in a sports betting bar in a Las Vegas hotel, where they have a sign that it's illegal to email or text betting information. Could they have nobbled my phone? The only reason I wanted to look at my gmail was because I'd seen a news item saying that information about users of a service I'd signed up for, had their information hacked by Anonymous and posted on a third party website. I was trying to get to gmail to change my password.
