BB Bold 9700 :: Device Not Locking On 3G But Storm 2 Did
Jun 9, 2010
I was travelling with a friend who is using Storm 2. We were comparing our devices and founf that at certain area the Storm 2 signal is on 3G with the bb logo but my Bold 9700 signal shows EDGE. But when I change the option at Mobile Network to 3G only, my Bold 9700 is able to lock the signal to 3G, however when I change back Mobile Network to 3G & 2G it goes back o EDGE (not immediately though).
I am currently running OS .680.... Is there a fix to the problem above or it is a known Bold 9700 issue or a known .680 issue. I have not try this with previous OS so not sure if it will acted differently.Any opinion. Am considering downgrading the OS but will wait for feedback first.
I have just upgraded my 9700 to .593 and everything works fine except for locking the phone keyboard.
Previously when I click on the top button of the mobile my phone goes into "Password mode" locking which means you can't unlock the device unless you enter the password. But after the update, clicking the button will only lock the keyboard and anyone can unlock it by clicking the same button.
My Blackberry Bold 9700 continues to lock up after installing the latest OS. Locking up is occurring on various screens. I am also getting an error when trying to get on facebook app 'uncaught exception : java.lang.NoClassDegFound Error
my BB Bold 9700 running OS 6 bundle 1879. So what has been happening happening over the past month or so is the device starts to lock up and not respond for up to 40 sec then corrects itself. Other times I will get an uncaught error or exception error. I have to keep pulling the battery out and resetting the device about 3 times a day at least.
Is there a way of Passwording or locking access to the contents of the SD card as i transport things from work on it and do not want it viewed by unauthorised people if it got in to the wrong hands (before anyone says anything no its not dirty pictures lol ). If i could lock the memory card it would make it that bit more secure.
I recently updated my Blackberry 9700 and ever since it's not as it used to be. I used to press the top left to lock button to lock it. When I did this the screen would dim, but now when I press the shortcut key the screen goes black. Then if I press the shortcut key again it unlocks it straight away even though I have the password option on. Before, regardless of which ever key I pressed it would always ask for a password. Now, the only time it asks for the password is when I take it out of the holster. This is really annoying me.Is this something that i can change or do i have to do a restore??
Carrier: Verizon Model info and OS version: Model: 9550 (Storm 2) Total App memory 252 Mb Free memory 53 Mb Software Version: 5.0 Bundle 1656 (v18.104.22.1685, Platform 22.214.171.1242)
Issue: I have 2. First, Uncaught exception: java.lang.nullpointer Details: Every time I reboot my machine (which is often do to second problem), I get this error message. The solution involving removal of my contacts and re-syncing is a problem since my current software isn't allowing me to sync the address book in the first place. (I have no idea why.)(See below for software type and version)
Second. Screen locks up at various times. (With nothing consistent in cause)Details: I have not been able to find any rhyme of reason for this problem. The only thing that seems consistent about it is that placing my phone in my back pocket, even for a few seconds, will cause it to lock up. That being said, it will lock up at any time, during any program usage, or none at all. I have had the alarm go off in the morning only to find that the only way to stop the alarm is to pull the battery. I have removed virtually every app from the device. The problem, so far as I can tell, was not timed in relationship to any software install to begin with, but I was hopeful. Let it also be said that I am pulling the battery to reboot my phone a minimum of 3 to 5 times daily. Last week it went for almost 2 days without a problem and then it started right back up. Sometimes I will have to battery pull to make a phone call and do it again to stop the phone call. It is that unpredictable.
BTW: Computer is using - Blackberry Desktop Software Version 126.96.36.199
My Curve 8900 has started to lock on it's own. Sometimes it happens when I'm typing an email or text, sometimes it happens when I'm waiting for a browser page to upload. Initially I thought it might be a particular keystroke I was hitting but it has happened when I'm simply holding the device and not typing at all. Has anyone had this problem or does anyone know how to fix it?
Is there a way to manually lock the device instead of waiting for the amount of time you specify in setting to expire? I have the Galaxy S5 and would like to be able to quickly lock it with a key press or something similar. That way I can increase the time before it automatically lock for quicker access. Surely there's a way.
I have an S5 for my work device. It is locked into the corporate policies setup by my IT department.
My first issue is - as part of policy, I must have a strong password and my phone auto locks after 30 minutes. When I make calls, even 3 second phone calls, the phone will lock after I hang up.
My second issue is kind of linked to the first - when my phone is connected to my Sony Car Stereo, it disables the keyboard so I cannot type (obviously a safety feature), which is fine because I do not drive and text/email etc. except that after I take a call, I cannot unlock my phone to allow me to make another call.
Purchased the new Bold 9650 from Verizon the other day and am having trouble with the device switch wizard when I try to switch from my Storm to the Bold. When I get to the Device Selection Screen at the bottom it says "The device does not have enough space for your selections. Select fewer applications." The only things selected are default things. I've tried deselecting everything possible and I still get this message.
i've just upgraded to the blackberry 9700 from a nokia n958gb but texting is not as easy i liked to move down a line or two sometimes when txting but on this phone if i move down it sends the text i know that there is a setting on the storm 2 for you to change the setting of the return key but i dont have that setting on this does anyone know how to do this or am i stuck with what i have at the moment
I just started noticing that when I hit the power button on my N6 and it shuts off I hear a popping sound. I also hear it not when I swipe up and put in the pattern lock I have, but when the phone unlocks after that when the homescreen comes up. Is this Normal? I swear I didn't hear it before.
I purchased the Sprint Blackberry Tour 9630 (without camera) the other day. When I went to plug it into my computer yesterday to back up my info, etc. it prompted me to upgrade to 188.8.131.524 from 4.7 (I believe.)Question - after I upgraded, the lock device feature went away. I usually use the left convenience key to lock it. However, the icon is no longer there and I no longer have the option available in the keyboard/screen section. PLEASE HELP! I need to be able to lock my device.
I woke up in the middle of the night and saw my bberry at the start up screen with the white bar. It was at the 75%. I don't recall installing any apps before i slept which would require a reboot. So, i pull out the battery and reinsert it. It was still stuck at 75%. Tried it a few times this morning and still at the start up screen. I need help ASAP!
I called T-Mobile and they said a file is corrupted and would need to send me a replacement.Is there anything i could do?
My bb device refuse to update. My current device software version is 184.108.40.2061 and BB desktop software version is updated to last version. the problem is when I connect my mobile to the PC and desktop software running and I choose update my device a window come up and said there are no BB device software updates available. I also tried to use wireless update and it was useless it doesnt work with me neither.
I have a new BB9700. With desktop manager i uploaded ubertwitter, over internet installed some gmail apps (gmail, google maps). While instaling ubertwitter the forth action of install in deskop manager could not be completed, it was not moving, so I cancelled it. Everything worked fine for a while.
Then, while typing a messege into blackberry messenger the phone went totally blank (white screen,), the hard reseted itself and after initialisation, it went into begginers setup. From then, when you cancel the setup it shows in the first line BlackBerry Platform 220.127.116.11 and a list of BB apps, address book, ATTMusic, BrickBreaker, Calculator, Calendar and so forth. When you click on any of them it says: "Error starting net_rim_bb_file_explorer; module "net rim_bb_browser_lib not found." Or similar.
The only thing that works are calculator, memo, password keeper and options. With options I can access application list and delete some of them if necessary.
All the settings in options are erased to starting options.What is also interesting is that I can return phone calls after I get a missed call. The phone does not ring, it is muted, but I get a notice of a missed call and I can the return the call.Does that mean that failuire of the desktop manager to complete the forth action cause BB to completly erase everything? Does it mean I need to reactivate the phone (BES) and start from scratch?
I purchased my N97 about a year ago and I absolutely adore it. I haven't run into any problems until last week. When I turn on my phone, enter the unlock code and use it to do whatever I need to do, it works fine. However, if I lock the phone or let the backlight shut off, it won't turn back on and neither do the lights on the number keys. Here is the funny part: If I press the power key (as if I were to change my profile) the backlight turns on, allowing me to see the screen, but the number keys don't light up! Does anyone know what I can do?
I'm not very tech savvy (so please don't laugh if my solutions are completely wrong), but here are some of the things I have done to try and rectify the problem: - Let the battery drain completely and charged it in the hopes that it would rectify itself like it has in the past with other issues - Took out the battery, SIM card and memory card just to make sure everything was inserted properly - Restored the phone to factory settings
I tried to download it, the download is denied with "unsupported device", while according to other information on the site, the device, country, provider etc. is supported. When trying other applications on the site, all the downloads are denied too. I get redirected to "download AppWorld" or to "have it emailed to yourself". Accessing this email from the blackberry finally redirects me to the "unsupported device" page again. I also tried to download it with a web browser, the site says it isn't possible. They require Internet Explorer. So I started kvm, and tried this (in violation of any security policies). There are more requirements, ActiveX, clicking popups away, and cycling through some pages a few times. Then it tells me I need an USB driver to download. But I don't download via USB, I download via the internet? When on the blackberry, I tried WLAN and EGDE, it doesn't work with any.
Just wondering what the normal free memory should be on the 9700? I am running 18.104.22.1685 and have ubertwitter, aim, msn, bbtran, yahtzee tiger woods 2009 wordsearch facebook google maps compass, fmylife, textsfromlastnight, shazam, tetherberry, kayak, movies, weathereye, monopoly here and now, tetris and texttwist installed. Sounds like lots of apps buut they are all under 1mb.
I have got a Bold 9700 running with a firmware which does not seem to be branded from a speciel provider, nor locked to any provider. In that case I guess it is a pure RIM firmware which is installed. Does anyone know where I can get the RIM firmwares instead of installing a branded release?
mine has around 120mb free wheb purchased new. is this about right. i thought it had twice that? i assume the system takes a bit of it? but then i saw a Internet video and the guys bb is loaded with apps and still got 130mb free. search in Internet "blackberry 9700(onyx) over review". why is that? makes me wonder. is it cuz his is a tester model?
