i have one piece of 9700 and i live in the UAE and have a 3g contract with my provider. But when i use the mobile it shows small edge icon and not big one.My simcard works in another bb 9700 but not this one, can anyone help me out?
I cannot use my blackberry because the service status has been on edge (small letters), i have tried to get it to change to capital letters so i can use the phone but all to no avail. What do i do please?My bb is a 9700 (white)
I am using bb 8110 pearl and I used bis plan 2 months ago and everything worked fine for me and I deactivated and 1 month ago I reactivated it but edge is showing in small letters and I called 2 service provider and they told me my plan is activated and it is same as what I was using before. I did everything like battery pull out, wipe out, upgrade and downgrade and sending registration message from host routing table and also tried on-pff data services. I am calling daily service provider but they said my plan is activated and working but I cant get use anything. I read somewhere if pin is blocked by rim then cant use net services. But I don't know even if mine is blocked. In status I can see pin and imei.
On my Homescreen Instead of 3G/GPRS/EDGE it gives me edge/3g/gprs Which means that BIS isnt activated on my account.I cannot access my Email or Browser because the BIS is not activated,I called my Carrier "Etisalat" Customer support nearly 20 times, And Everytime they Ask me to remove the battery and re-plug! Last time i checked they told me that in their systems it appeared my blackberry's BIS was indeed activated, But on my BB it was still edge, So I think the problem might be from the BB/Sim Card.I have been having this problem 2 months now and I would really appreciate your help.FYI i have tried all these steps(but didn't work):
I already have data plan on my sim and few days back all of a sudden the EDGE became small letters. Tried registering host and tried doing hard reset and even tried upgrading OS to 6.0 but nothing worked.note that i had BES account configured on this BB device and everything worked just fine until Thursday October 6th.
i have EDGE on my blackberry 9700.. but its been showing GSM and i am unable to check my mails, neither my bbm is activated, messengers, etc etc... I have done basic switching off and on, taking my SIM off for a while and switching it on again.. But none has worked.
My Bold has been doing this since yesterday, along with crappy reception. Could it be T-Mobile? Anywho, I'm on JiveTalk right now and my IMs aren't going through. The phone shows a full 5 bars (which is strange because it's impossible to get full signal in my office) yet there's no connectivity period. It's a fake 5 bars. There's no edge or EDGE showing, so I know there's no connectivity.It was doing this last night too. Right now it's going between the fake 5-bars to SOS, and back and forth.
For last few days I am having a problem with K790i. When I turn on my phone it shows a small box showing 'Please wait' after the Sony Ericsson logo disappears. Then after waiting for about 10 minutes another small box appears with same 'Please wait ' error. I tried the FW update by SEUS, but it's taking just 30 seconds to install, which I think is weird and might be it's not even updating. So is there any way to Master Reset the phone without being on? By the Keys or something?
My 9700 recently started not letting me view my new text messages. For example, sometimes I get forwarded chain texts and it won't let me view them, it'll show a random block of text and that's it. And if I try to reply to it, it won't show me my reply, it's only doing this with a few contacts, but it's still extremely annoying.I've tried uninstalling my third party apps and it didn't fix it, is it a setting I have to change or does anyone know anything?
After Upgrading my 9700 to OS 6 there has been serious memory issues with my device. I am always shot of memory on the device. I had to uninstall my GPS apps and many utility software.I feel the 512 MB onboard memory is too small to OS 6 which take up lots of space.
Im thinking to purchase the 9700, but i am wondering if the 9700 has an option to switch frequencies from EDGE to 3G or vice-versa? As I recall, when the 9000 first came out, it did not have that type of option.
whats the difference between the 3G fluctuating between big and small? Is it like EDGE and edge or it something different on the new 3G handsets? I thought the BB logo was what meant it was connected to the BB network. Any input? Im running the new 9700 OS that was released today and 3G seems better but I noticed its changing alot.
when I'm in sms application, there are small numbers that appear in the upper left corner of the device. Specifically, mine are " 120 1/6" I'm was thinking 120 contacts and 1 of 6 ongoing converstations or something to that effect, but even when I close them out...it still show 1/6. What exactly is this trying to tell me? Also, when powering down the phone what is the difference in the two options? 1 is "turn off" the othe is "full power down" or something like that. What is the difference? I want my phone off to save battery, but I want my alarm to go off in the morning. Which reminds me, what is "Standby Mode"? Noticed that holding the mute button a few seconds put the device into that mode.
Is anyone else having problems with dropped calls when switching from UMA to 3G? Where I work I do not have a signal in the building, so I keep my WIFI on so I can both make and receive phone calls while inside.
The problem occurs when I'm on the phone and step outside. I lose my connection with the router, and instead of switching from UMA to 3G, my call is dropped, and it takes my phone about 10 seconds to find the 3G signal.I was hopping that upgrading the .442 would solve the problem, but it has not
Always maintained a very strong 3g signal, 5 bars always no matter where I was. The last 3 or 4 days my signal started dropping like crazy to EDGE - edge - to gps or whatever to no signal. Did everything to try and fix it. Called T-Mobile about the problem and they said no problem we are sending you a new 9700. I will have it Wednesday afternoon. I asked if it will be a new one or refurbished, she said a new one. You can't beat that with a stick. They have the best customer service out of all the carriers. Just wanted to tell my recent experience with my carrier.
I am curious as to how when im indoors the 9700 switches randomly(it appears) between Edge and UMA.Why is this and it this normal??? What dictates its setting when i have set the 9700 to WiFi?? As a result of my self admitted lacking tech skills on the issue it all appears random but i suspect its not..Happy Thanksgiving..
I recently moved to a brand new AT&T BB9700, it is just awesome, the best change from an old Curve. The thing is I'm having serious problems with the Battery. I'm having annoying and unexpected "blackouts" or "shutdowns", wheterver you may want to call them, with an apparently perfect battery level. Please take notice that the first charge of my BB9700 device was for a full charge as indicated by some of you for 16 hours.
Ever since, I'm having a perfect 3G and EDGE connection, been very careful not leaving open applications, but there are times, when having let's say 30% to even 60% apparently battery level, that the BB9700 completely shuts down, unoperative, without any kind of alert! No low battery led, or indication on the screen whatsoever. This is freaking me out, because this is not supposed to work like that.
I've been reading that there are some of you that have a perfect full day or even more of a regular "BB usage" meaning email, conversations, web browsing, etc. I'm 90% sure the Battery is damaged or faulty, so I need you help to guide me if there is something I'm doing wrong (I think not , and besides need your orientation on how to ask RIM/BB for a replacement battery if effectively my battery is not working as it should, and as I paid to be working!
I have photos under my contacts and when they call me the picture is really small. With so much unused real estate on the screen can the pictures be made to show larger on the screen when the call comes in?What a great phone! The sound and screen quality blow me away.
I know once a blackberry is unlocked, its unlocked forever buuuuuuut recently my storm started switching from EDGE to edge...CONSTANTLY! i cant stay on the internet long enough to do anything, i called t-mobile and made sure all my settings were correct and they were
it also switches from T-mobile to Verizon and then freezes up, does anyone know whats wrong with my storm? should i resend my service books?
So every once in a while, my phone will switch from EDGE to edge. I've come to the conclusion that you are unable to use any data required services with the lowercase "edge."
My solution to this is going to Options>Advanced>Host Routing Table> Then from there resending service books. After a bit, it'll return to "EDGE" in capitals. I have t-mobile and I DO have the data plan. Is there any other solution to this? I don't enjoy doing this ever so often, I seem to miss a lot of things while I do not have data.
I have an 8320 running on 081. When I first got the phone emails (hotmail) were working perfectly and the EDGE icon on the home screen was with capital letters.3 days the edge switched to small letters and no more emails are coming in and I cannot send any PIN.My carrier says that my data plan is working fine on their end and that I should be able to receive my emails.
I bought a bold 9700 Unlocked , everything works , except the browser , i resent the service books , upgraded it to .344 and then downgraded it to .321 , still same issue . just am frustrated like **** , everything was fine on my 8900 but this phone is really driving me crazy .
for new emails, the little red start dosnt show up on the little letter icon at the top of the screen.....but when i do a batter pull, it works, but then stops again.AND the cycle repeats, anybody got any ideas? thanks
T-Mobile Bold 9700 OS 188.8.131.520...When I take pictures, it saves, but I don't see it in All Pictures folder. If I go to Explore > Media Card > Blackberry > Pictures, I see it there. How do I get it to show under All Pictures without having to go through ^that process?
