BB Bold 9700 :: BB 9700 Bold / Random Keypad Lock

Jul 26, 2010

I have a problem with my Blackberry and would be grateful if anyone knows what the problem is.I have only my Blackberry 9700 bold for 1 month or so.I am unable to lock my keypad by using the lock key on top of the phone. This has happened before but after charging my phone it started to work again. I have turned my phone on and off, tried charging it and the button still doesn't work. Although the keypad will lock when I put it into the leather case.Do you think it is a problem with my blackberry and I should return it? Or is this a problem people have had before and if so, how do I fix it?

BB Bold 9700 :: When In A Call Or BB In Keypad Lock Mode / It Suddenly Shut Off Itself

Apr 16, 2010

I'm a dedicated BB users and have been using many models over the years, but this is the first annoying problem i encounters with the 9700.i bought 2 tMo 9700 last week for me and my wife. when i got home, i updated the os of my 9700 to .586

the problem started when the battery level reach 40%. whenever i'm in a call or the bb in keypad lock mode, it suddenly shut off itself. and then i can't turned it on unless i plugged in the charger. but after it turned on, i can unplugged the charger and the bb would be normal until the battery reach 0%.

i thought i was a battery problem with my 9700, so i tried using my wife battery, and it was still the same problem coming out. so then i thought it was an OS problem, so i upgrade it to .593, and it still gave me the same problem. then i tried downgrade it to .578, and it still the same.then my guess was it was a faulty 9700. but i tried the software upgrade to my wife's BB and then she had the same problem as i am.

what's wrong with our 9700's? can anyone help us? i have been looking all over the internet but found no solution.we have the same apps installed beside add ons: ubertwitter, opera mini, google sync, googlemaps,foyage, blackcorpo theme.

BB Bold 9000 :: Keyboard Lock Feature

May 30, 2010

Is there anyway to revert back to the old way of unlocking the bold, like from early 5.0 OS? like when you were supposed to hold * and the call button, because I absolutely despise this new mute button procedure and my mute button on my bold is already becoming unresponsive.Basically I'm wondering if perhaps there's a application that can switch them or maybe even a way to configure a different button on my bold to mute because as it is the default button (top left of the bold) is pretty much becoming unresponsive on my phone and I don't really want to get locked out.

BB Bold 9700 :: No Notifications For Visual Voice Mail On Upgrading / Phone Does Not Lock In Holster

Jun 28, 2010

Just upgraded from bold 9000 to 9700. I upgraded my OS to version .743. After that, I stopped getting visual voice mail notifications. The message is there when I dial "1", but doesn't show up at all under the VVM menu, nor do I get the visual indication(s). It did work on the AT&T OS out of the box. Second issue with this O.S.- phone does not lock when it is in the holster. I have to believe both these issues are with the .743 version of the OS, but I may be missing something. I've read others with the VVM problem, not none of the threads seem to offer a solution except to say that AT&T WAS having issues with this back in November.

BB Bold :: 9700 Keypad Does Not Work?

Nov 26, 2011

My bold 9700 stopped working for no reason! The keypad stoped working all of a sudden. I cannot type in my pin, the trackpad doesn't function, the unclock button on top doesn't work and after a few seconds the screen goes black and the only way to bring the light back on is to either connect it to my laptop via USB which will show the clock and once the USB is removed I get the home screen but cannot do anything there again; or i have to remove the battery and reboot but again I would get the black acreen and the cycle would continue.

My email, text messages, missed calls, facebook notifications and all come thru alright and the red light flashes to indicate this and I get the little sign on top of home screen but cannot access anything as the keypad and the trackpad are both completely non-responsive.

I called my mobile from a landline but again i cannot accept the call as pressing the green call button or any other key for that matter doesn't work. I could access the device via the BB desktop software and have backedup and updated the firmware (i was using the most uptodate version untile now without any problems) . The phone has not gotten wet and hasn't been in any damp environment. I haven't got any dodgy apps or security issues for instance as aresult of opening sapm etc.

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Hidden Feature / Native Multi Page Text Message

Mar 19, 2010

A little background story, I was in school in the locker room and its on the bottom floor in the middle of the school. I took my phone out and had no service. I looked at a text message I got earlier in the day but hadn't looked at until then and I noticed to the right of the 160 character count there was 1 of 6. Now I immediately tried sending a 2 page text to a friend just trying to test this and sure enough it sent both parts and she received both too. I have my original Storm 2 that I got from Verizon, it still has the stock OS on it, .320.Now after 2 days I found out a little more on why this happened. I had no service like I said, the bars were red and it said SOS. So I literally had no service. I checked the connections manager and it didn't show I was connected to Verizon Wireless. I then opened a text message and sure enough it was there, 1 of 6. It only shows up when you have no service at all. I then went back into service after typing two pages and it worked. I did try just turning the connection to the network off but that didn't work, it didn't show the multi-page message, 1 of 6. It only works if you find a dead zone/no service area. It showed up for all the contacts I had SMS messages for, no matter what carrier they had.

After my first post I decided to take a picture. Now I wasn't able to get/find a app before I went to school so I took my camera and took the pictures. They are not very clear at all but you can see what I'm talking about. This is the clearest picture I could seem to get. Its fuzzy but if you look at the top you will see the name of the contact and then just under it where it says 160 / 1 of 6.Multi-Page Text: 160 / 1 of 6 .Let me know what you think? I would really like to see this get integrated.
