I can't get my Bluetooth to turn on. I have a 9700 BB Bold . When I go to the Manage Connections from there down to Turn on Bluetooth, then it will have a check mark in the box on the lift side but on the right side it will say (RED X) it will NOT go (green check mark).
Got my new Bold 9700 and love love love it....the only problem is that my browser is super slow....even loading google can take up to a minute! I've noticed my wireless isn't that great either...gets better if I turn bluetooth off but not by much?
I have a Bold 9700 recently bought about 4 days ago... At first all the communication channels works fine i.e. Mobile Network, Wifi and Bluetooth. Suddenly this morning the wifi stop working. I'm unable to switch the wifi on even clicking on it many times. Tried to turn off the device and remove the battery for about a minute and still the problem is not solved.
Does the Motorola HS820 Bluetooth Audio Headset work with the Blackberry Bold 9700? It is not clear to me if only Blackberry bluetooth devices work with the Bold 9700, or any bluetooth device. With the Bold 9700 recognize to ask for the four digit code when first aligning it with the HS820?
Can't turn Bluetooth off. Normally do this when it doesn't connect with my Nissan Navara & then turn it back on & its done the trick. Been trying all day to turn Bluetooth off,unticked Bluetooth under manage connections but but a circle is just going round & round at the side of the On symbol.
I have a Bold 9700 and a 2005 BMW 530.When trying to pair the 2 via bluetooth, the device is not even acknowledged in the pairing process.No device is found.The pairing worked with my previous BB Curve, BB Bold and current iPhone.
I'm having trouble pairing my Bold 9700 with my computer. I did it once, but had to take it off, and now I can't redo it. I have Windows 7 64-bit. When I try to pair it with my computer, it says it cannot find the driver and only recognizes it as a modem. It doesn't recognize that I'm actually pairing a Blackberry device. As a result, I cannot add it in the Desktop Manager. Got the desktop manager to recognize it. Seems like that was just luck, and everything does seem to work. However, my computer says there is problems with the device as it cannot find 2 drivers. It actually doesn't work at all. It's clearly driver related. It only recognizes it as a modem and a bluetooth remote. Nothing blackberry related. (When I use the USB, it's fine). Just another small problem, every time (or almost) that I connect my phone to my computer and open the Desktop Manager, it tells me some sort of Chinese character support needs to be updated. However, when I tell it ok, and it rechecks to see what needs to be updated, it says no new updates are available.
i have bb 9700 , i could not pair with my car kit Bluetooth , when i find the car Bluetooth , my device asked the pass key password that wich i could not enter it in the car device .how could i cancel the process of asking pass key in my device to connect easily ?
Does anyone know if there is a software problem as I can't print from my bold to a little HP printer via bluetooth. I've paired the device, tried to set it up under bluetooth but the message I get is "connection failed". My bb pin is 226D5C97, if you want to contact me.
I turned my BB off about 20 hours ago. When I tried to turn it on just now, it would not turn on! I tried removing the battery for a few seconds, and when I put it back in the LED glowed red, but then it turned off, and the deivice still will not turn on.
Can anything be done, short of throwing it in the river? Having acquired a Galaxy Tablet, I'm thinking I need to ditch the BB for an Android-based phone.
Hey, i recently got a new laptop and paired my bold 9700 to it. I'm sending it back and getting a replacement for it, so i haven't uploaded my itunes yet, but i was playing the music over bluetooth from my phone. I get this little popup control menu (See Image), but it doesn't actually allow me to control the music. Is there any fix for this, am i doing something wrong? If Necessary, i've got a bold 9700 (fromt AT&T) running OS 220.127.116.112, and my laptop is an alienware m17x r1, with win 7 home premium.
Recently got an 9700 Bold and i would like to transfer my contacts from an old 8310 via bluetooth.I've tried connecting the 2 devices and although they can 'find' each other and pair up, when i click connect it instantly pops up "connection to xxxxx failed" - both are discoverable, passcode is correct, trusted is set to yes. would appreciate any help you guys can give!
I am unable to successfully add my Blackberry 9700 as a bluetooth device paired to my Windows 7 64 bit laptop in order to use the wireless syncing function. When I attempt to pair the device, I receive the error message "device driver was not successfully installed" and "Bluetooth peripheral device- no driver found." The properties display 2 missing drivers. Can someone advise me from where I can obtain these missing drivers. I am using Desktop Manager 18.104.22.168.
I have just got a Bold 9700 and am really starting to like this phone. But I cannot get the bluetooth to work properly. It will pair with my devices but will not connect to them. It says connection failed or connection not supported. It will not connect to my cars built in bluetooth either, I have a new 2010 galaxy and it accepts the cars passkey but will not connect. I Really need my phone to connect to my car. When I go to my paired device list and click on a device I do not get a connect option, which I have been told to use. I am on vodafone in the UK and have contacted them to see if they can help but they tell me they do not help with Blackberry's (funny that when they take my money for it) so I am unsure where to contact now for help.
on my 8310, i had shortcut button for each apps. for example, to get to calender, i would just press "l", and for address book it would be "a", and for calculator, it would be "u" etc. can u do the same for the 9700? how do u turn on the shortcut feature?
just switch from a 9000 to a 9700 and have been very happy.however the top lock/unlock key is a pain.I carry my phone in my pocket and while putting it in my pocket i always hit the unlock key, then i have an ulocked phone in pocket.Is there a way to turn off the top unlock key? while im at it i wouldnt mind turning off the standy fuction as well.
my blackeberry bold had very low battery last night and i put it on charging before going to sleep when i woke up i saw it was off and it wont turn on again....maybe the charger's wire had been pulled and it discharged. now wehn i insert the battery into it the red light turns on for 60 seconds and then goes off....my phone wont charge or turn on.
I've only had my Blackberry Bold for about 2 months. The camera was being a little funny and won't zoom so I switched off my phone and took out the battery and replaced it to try and reboot the phone. Now it won't turn on.When the battery is in the Red LED light at the top right corner lights up then goes off when the Phone starts up showing the BLACKBERRY Logo on the screen with the Loading Bar underneath. The bar then shows that it is loading but almost immediately it crashes and switches off. It does this repeatedly though I've tried removing and replacing the battery several times.
I'm sure it is not a problem with the battery as I had only charged it the previous night and even tried using another battery from my friends Blackberry just to double check but the phone continues to repeatedly turn on, crash, turn off.
Last week I bought a bold 9700 it seemed to be working then as it turned on ok. It was however not used since so the battery died. Sincee yesterday I have been trying to charge it and power it on to no avail all I am getting is the red light flight double flashing continuously.
I have a Jaguar X-Type on which the bluetooth system appears to remain active for several minutes after the car is switched off. The effect of this is that the phone remains linked to the car until the car system eventually shuts down.If I receive a call to my mobile during this period, the phone rings but I am not able to hear anything through the phone earpiece. How can I disconnect from the car bluetooth in order to receive any incoming calls that coincide with the above period. This has caused some embarassment on a number of occasions.
Laptop: Acer Aspire 5002WLMi, Windows XP SP2 Smartphone: Blackberry Bold 9700 Network Device: Bluetooth, Wifi (ad-hoc not available for bold 9700?)
I am using my laptop for traveling and I use USB CDMA modem connection to connect to the internet. Recently my wife bought a Blackberry bold 9700 hoping that she could access internet without carrying her laptop while traveling with me, sharing the same connection from my laptop. I have been trying to use WiFi to connect my bold 9700 with my laptop using ad-hoc but it seems that bold 9700 does not support ad-hoc. Therefore I am trying another way to connect to the internet from my BB using my Bluetooth. I have linked my blackberry device through bluetooth and my laptop is currently connected to the internet.
I have been trying to use my wife's BB to connect to the internet using my laptop's bluetooth connection. But I could not get it to work. Before posting here, I have been searching everywhere on the web for a guide but I could not seems to find one. Could anyone guide me on how to share my laptop internet connection so that my BB could access the web using the same connection as my laptop? If bluetooth and WiFi doesn't work is there any other way? Using USB perhaps? In short: Laptop internet Connection > Share using ? and how? > BB's can browse the web without additional data plan.
So i came off my phone 1am & everything was cool, during the night i noticed it seemed to be booting up as if it had been battery pulled. When i got up it was still doing this but the progress bar gets a quarter of the way then the screen goes blank & it starts again. It has now been about 8 hours & its STILL doing this. Whats going on & how can i get my phone working again?
