BB Bold 9700 :: Home Wi-Fi Connection / Wi-Fi Icon Keeps Going Grey

Jan 6, 2010

I've never had a problem with any other devices connecting to my home wifi, but my Blackberry 9700 keeps getting the grey wifi icon on the home screen, and when I'm trying to load a website, it keeps switching to Edge or 3G to complete the loading of a webpage. In manage connections, I sometimes have a green tick next to my home broadband, but very often I have a (-). Is there anything I can do to make the connection better?
So far, I've tried:Deleting the connection and setting up the wifi again;
Pulling the battery.Neither has helped. Could it possibly be a hardware fault? I have the up to date OS etc.

Unlocked blackberry bold 9700 (v5.0.0.405, Platform I've had for about 9 months now. Tried to connect to wifi in an airport without success and deletetd the profile.

BB Bold 9700 :: Tiny Icon On Home Screen

May 16, 2010

Recently got a blackberry bold 9700 as a gift. Noticed that a very tiny icon comes up near the upper left corner of the screen. Looks like a box or briefcase with a red circle on the top right corner of the icon, either with a white star or arrow in it. Its too small to say for sure. Can't find any answers in the manuals or online.

BB Bold 9700 :: New Message Icon Remains On Home Screen?

Aug 21, 2010

The new message icon remains on the home screen even after the messages have been read. It also remains on the Message folder.I was told to remove the battery when the phone is "On" and re-insert it. The icon does disappear only to return when new messages arrive. Is there a permanent solution for this problem? This must be a software problem but no new software updates are available from RIM

BB Bold 9700 :: Removing A Web Link Icon From Home Screen

Jan 19, 2010

I downloaded a few application that I thought were demos of games, but turned out to just be links to the developer's website. It was essentially just a ploy to get some extra revenue, which I suppose is their perogative, but I found the label to be misleading. In any case, I now wish to remove these "demos", but I can't seem to figure out how. The menu on selection won't let me remove the icon (it can be hidden, but I want it gone), and they don't show up under Setup --> Applications.They also don't appear in App World, so I can't archive/delete them from there. I've been working on this for a while now, to no avail. Any thoughts?

BB Bold 9700 :: Unrecognized Icon On Phone Home Screen

Mar 5, 2010

I have recently notice a small red icon next to the carrier (Orange) name at the top of my 9700's home screen. On close examination it appears to be a house icon. I can't find reference to it in any of the booklets or by Googling. (I've also noticed that when I'm in the office it goes white).

BB Bold 9700 :: Way To Place Icon On Home Screen / Opens Directly To Webpage

Aug 22, 2010

Is there any way to place an icon on the homescreen which opens directly to a webpage. For example, I don't use the Facebook application due to preferring the mobile web based version but would like to open directly from the homepage if possible without opening the browser and selecting the bookmark.

BB Bold 9700 :: Bold 9700 - Outlook Calendar And Contacts - Not Let Select Yes On Wireless Connection

Jan 13, 2010

I got a new BB 9700 Bold yesterday and having problems with setting up the sync for the calendar and the contacts which are on my outlook. My hotmail email accounts are working okay. The outlook is on my PC and is the front face for my hotmail accounts.

When I go in to the BB Desktop device manager - version 5.0.1 (latest version) , I go in to the configure option on the left and it lets me click on calendar> then I select outlook and it then lets me select 'finish'. However at this stage an error box flashes up saying 'no available message stores'.
In addition when I check the wifi config on the calendar and contacts icons on the BB device it will not let me select yes on the wireless connection for them.

BB Bold 9700 :: Call Log Icon Missing / Way To Remove Visual Voice Mail Icon

Jan 6, 2010

I just got the bold 9700 ver. 2 from ATT and don't have the phone icon. It is not hidden, I looked, and not in any other folder. All I have is a phone icon that is for Visual Voice Mail, which I am not signed up for and don't want to be. When I click the VVM icon it says do you want to sign up and I hit No and it just kicks me back to the main screen. How can I get rid of the Visual VM icon and get the Call log icon?

BB Curve :: WiFi Icon - Sometimes Grey, Sometimes White?

Jun 3, 2011

I have wifi at home. Sometimes the icon on the phone is white, sometimes it is grey.what is the difference?I have even stood right next to the router and it's been grey.Is there something in the phone that I have to change to FORCE it to use the wifi? I can't see any means of testing the speed. If I could, I'd see that GPRS gets about 5kb/s, but on wifi it should get 1.3mb.

BB Bold 9700 :: New SMS Icon Same As New Email Icon?

Jul 25, 2010

When I get a new SMS, it is the same as a new e-mail icon. However, this is not supposed to be so... SMS's are supposed to be a slanted envelop. I never had this problem with my old curve 8320. I've also had this icon issue since I got my phone several months ago. The icons remain the same no matter which OS version I use. I am on T-mobile.

BB Bold :: App World Icon Is Missing From Home?

Nov 7, 2012

I upgraded to Blackberry App World version on my Blackberry Bold 9780 yesterday. After re-booting the phone, my App World icon was suddenly missing from my home screen. It was not on my Download screen either. I could also not find it when doing a search for App World. I re-installed App World from the Blackberry website. I still had the same problem. Then a friend suggested that I un-install App World by Settings: Device: Application Management: Blackberry App World - and selecting delete in Options. I did this - and then re-installed App World AGAIN on my phone from the website. And still the problem persists. Do I actually have App World on my phone or not? If I do have it on my phone, how and where do I find the icon - so I can place it on my home screen.

BB Bold 9700 :: Wi-Fi Connection Time?

May 14, 2010

I upgraded to OS .656 last night, and it somehow messed up my phone and made it to where I had no Wi-Fi connectivity unless I turned the phone's cellular radio off and forced it to use Wi-Fi. Otherwise, it would just use it's painfully slow EDGE network.

I downgraded back to .593, and all seems fine. It connects and the Wi-Fi logo goes from gray to white, as it should. But that process (connecting and the logo turning white, indicating connection) takes about a minute. The network's name will show up, the Wi-Fi logo will show up (in gray), and then after about a minute it turns white and I'm connected.

BB Bold 9700 :: Services Over Wi-Fi Connection

Mar 6, 2010

Network Name is on home screen + Wi-Fi indicator is dimmed.User Manual reads:Your device is connected to Wi-Fi network but does not have access to BlackBerry services over the Wi-Fi connection.After several hours perhaps overnight the Wi-Fi indicator comes on and then I HAVE "BLACKBERRY SERVICES". until the next time I leave the house and drive down the road.

My point iswhy should I have to wait an indeterminate length of time before I can use Wi-Fi internet services? From the time my Wi-Fi network name appears on the screen I should be able to access internet via Wi-Fi.what gives? How can I overcome this indeterminate waiting for the system to gain acces to "BlackBerry services" over Wi-Fi.
