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?
Is it possible to replace branded ancient unstable slow firmware v5.60 of Telefonica O2 Czech Republic with the original Nokia (e.g. v7.15)? Seems I bought **bleep** phone without chance of firmware update
I have a Bell Blackberry Bold 9700 and I just switch to Rogers! Would it be *better if I flash the rogers firmware on the phone, or leave it with the bell firmware? The rogers one is .351 and the bell one is .423 ...I guess I was wondering if the rogers would be better since i'm on the Rogers network
I am attempting to flash a Samsung T819 unlocked Tmobile branded device. I have acquired the updated firmware for the device and am attempting to use Multi-Loader V 5.40 to flash the firmware. I am unable to force this phone into any sort of boot/recovery mode in order to load the firmware, attempted using OPTI FLASH no success. If anyone has any further instructions in order to flash this device on new firmware
Im in Uk and bought a 9700 sim free and put my O2 blackberry contract sim in.
I have 22.214.171.1241 on at the moment and I looked on the blackberry website under the vendor specific ones and o2 have a newer firmware out.. Ive downloaded it and installed it on my pc then run Desktop Manager, but it says there are no updates for my device..What am I doing wrong?is this the wrong way to update firmware?
Won't bore you with all the details, but I am now on my second Bold in four days, and the email icons for the accounts I have set up are not populating. I'm referring to the branded icons, not the generic BB envelope/globe icons. I've sent service books and done battery pulls. Has anyone else ever had this problem upon initial set up? I have now experienced the same issue with two different devices.
Got my bold 9700 a month ago and finally decided to update to the latest firmware using the desktop manager.
Everything was going all fine and dandy but it is currently stuck on task 12 of 12 (restore device data) and hasnt moved for 3 hrs now...I don't want to unplug the device as it says unplugging may render some data unusable!
Despite putting the very latest firmware on my 9700, the email Settings Application ( in Setup Folder - Email settings) still takes me to a browser based setup on the BIS . my old 8900 and my work 9700 has an application type interface.. Why is this a problem ? Because it wont let me setup gmail Contact sync .. Keeps giving me a message "To start email@example.com contacts synchronization with your BlackBerry® device, complete the security activation on your device:
1. In the Setup folder, log in to the Email Settings application.
2. After you log in, the security activation starts. When security activation is complete, wireless synchronization of your contacts with your device automatically begins." This does not work and I'm guessing because i dont have the latest email settings on the device.. I have tried re-installing firmware , wipes etc..
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 126.96.36.1991 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 188.8.131.52 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 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 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 184.108.40.2065 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.
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?
Do I really need to reserve before it becomes an issue. I have a fair amount of free and paid apps, probably between 15-20. Right now, I am at 86 MB remaining. How low have some of you gotten before you notice any kind of problems? I have an 8GB SD card for pics, music, etc., so plenty of room there.
I'm a little surprised for as advanced as this device is that you only get 256MB of space (much less than that, really) for applications. Kinda reminds me of the problem the Nintendo Wii had, where they had an SD card slot, but you couldn't save and programs on it until they did a firmware update later on.
AFTER A MONTH WITH THE 9700 I JUST RAN THE SWITCH DEVICE WIZARD TO PORT SOME APPS AND SUCH FROM CURVE 8310.NOW EVERYTHING ON THE 9700 LOOKS LIKE THE 8310 AND I LOST ALL MY SMS/E-MAILS/ETC BUT THE APPS HAVE ALL SWITCHED OVER(EVEN THE THEME IS NOW FROM THE 8310)I THOUGHT I HAD A HANDLE ON THIS BUT APPARENTLY DO NOT - RAN THE SWITCH BACK WIZARD ONLY TO BE IN THE SAME BOAT AS BEFORE.HOW BAD IS THIS AM I COMPLETELY UNABLE TO RESTORE MY ORIGINAL 9700 SETTINGS?
I have been having issues with device software version 586. I have been getting uncaught exception with the phone. As well as my calendar and task do not merge any more. I have decided to downgrade back to version .330 until the bugs are worked out. Is anyone aware of this?
Some where along the line I did something and I cannot remeber what it was, when I used to attache the USB cabel I would be asked if I want to use the device as a mass storage device, I don't get asked that any more. There was also something that puts my phione in to bedside mode when charging, I set this, but I cannot remember where I set it.
Recently I have bought blackberry 9700 bold from O2 network in UK and it is blocked. Actually it is a contract mobile so they will not tell me the way how to unlock it until the contract finishes. So can any one tell me can i unlock it in free?
I updated the software of my BB Bold 9700 from ver 5.0 to ver 6.0 Bundle 2475. Now when i restart my device, it works well for around a minute but then it gets hanged and I cant use it any further. I tried connecting it with BB Desktop Software but the problem still persists. One of the reason for this could be inadequate phone memory. So is there any way I can get back to ver 5.0 now?
Im the unfortunate user of BB9700. I m unable to turn off the camera flash and it stays very bright even the device is turned off.. I pulled out the battery many times and also updated the OS, but still the problem remains same.
