BB Bold 9700 :: Used BBM In Abroad / Network Charge Extra?

Jul 2, 2010

I pay 40 for unlimited texts and internet and have 900 minutes, the price of my blackberry bolt-on is included in that price.I'm going on holiday next week, was wondering if using my bbm while abroad would mean extra roaming charges when I come back. I rang 02 and they '50/50' om it.Wondering if anyone can help?
Has anyone used bbm while abroad? Did your network charge extra?Nobody seems to have a solid answer,Also whats the alternative if you are charged? Will bbm still work if i use a local sim card while on holiday?

BB Bold 9700 :: Fully Unlocking For Use Abroad

Aug 19, 2010

i am planning on unlocking a bold 9700 for use abroad in spain with a vodafone sim card. i understand the unlocking process, but my question is whether or not the phone, which is going to be unlocked from at&t, will have full 3g functionality on vodafone's network in europe. i have heard that phones will work in europe when unlocked, but not necessarily with european 3g if they have previously been locked to at&t.

BB Bold 9700 :: Travelling Abroad - How To Connect To BIS Via Wifi

Apr 20, 2010

I will be going on vacation and to avoid the ridiculous roaming data charges, was wondering how I can connect to BIS over wifi? I have a BB data plan with my carrier (Rogers). I just want to be able to receive e-mails and use BBM when I'm connected via wifi while I'm away. I'm guessing that if I set "Data Services" to On and "While Roaming" to Off, under Mobile Network Options, this would NOT work, correct? Or am I mistaken?

BB Bold 9700 :: Adding Extra Periods & Spaces When Press Space Bar

Mar 3, 2010

For about a week my phone has been adding extra periods and spaces when I press the space bar. This has been happening with SMS, MMS and email. I knw about that short-cut (press the space bar twice to enter periods) but its doing that after almost every word. I have changed the sensitivity to the lowest setting possible but it continues to do it, even when i text slow. Not sure as to what I should do.

Nokia :: Unable To Select Network Abroad?

May 30, 2010

from Belgium, traveling in the States - using the 5800 XpressMusic. I'm unable to get a right network (to make phonecalls and text). Doesn't matter if I use the Dual Mode, UMTS or GSM. When I manually search, it gives me 2 options; AT&T and T-Mobile. When I request either one of them it tells me that I don't have access. What am I doing wrong? Is there a setting I'm missing?Settings > Connectivity > Network > Network unavailable. I'd like to see it changed. GPS and wifi are working fine.

BB Bold 9700 :: Why Does It Take So Long To Charge?

Jul 16, 2010

I was wondering why it has taken over six hours to charge only one increment of the total 5 bars on my Blackberry? It's still not fully charged. My Windows Mobile device gets a full charge in 1/4th that time. Same with my DSLR camera. Is there something wrong with my battery?

BB Bold :: 9700 Doesn't Charge Phone

Sep 17, 2011

Last night I was using my phone and noticed it was running low on battery. I put it on the charger and it didn't charge. I tried several different outlets, my dad's charger, and my USB, and none of them worked. So I gave up for that night. Today my dad got me a new battery and it still doesn't charge. Once again, I tried several different outlets, my dad's charger, and my USB cable.I've let it sit on the charger for a while, and nothing has happened. I am completely clueless. Since it's not the battery, it's the phone.Did I accidentally post this in the wrong subforum? I noticed I'm in the "Smartphones" section and I got my phone in December of 2009.

BB Bold :: 9700 Unlocked Network?

Jan 25, 2012

a bold 9700 and it is unlocked but orig from rogers. i am using it on fido and i have called them many times in the past 2 days to fix the problem i am having. i stopped using the phone for a few months as i was using an acer liquid phone. now i am back using the bb bold for various reasons and all i seem to be having is problems. the phone works when i am at work no problem but when i am at home all it does is search for a network. fido has tried adding an imei number to my account settings and we reset the phone from my end. this still has not fixed my service loss i have been getting. what settings should i have on the phone to stop this from happening? one of the reasons i had started to use this phone again was the fact that for some reason i had waken up in the am to look at my acer phone and it had told me that i had no service. so i took out the battery and the sim card and put it back in the phone and still i got no service. i put the sim card in the bb and i got the same thing. so i put the sim card into a non smartphone celly that i got and it worked fine now why would this be?

During this week gone, she plugged her bb into her PC and an error came up. the PC asked if to fix the error or contnue without scanning. She selected the latter. Then yesterday, when she plugged her phone in to charge it immediately shut off. After putting it back on she plugged it in again to charge and the same thing happened again. Since then, she is unable open her pictures in her media folder- She can only preview it.Also when she tries to send a picture via BBM she only sees two of the pictures that she has on her phone and is unable to select any of them to send to a contact.She also isn't able to change her profile picture in BBM.She has done countless battery pulls and the issues stated still exists. she was however able to charge her phone without it shutting down this morning. But all other issues mentioned still exists.She is running the OS that came with her Phone She had an issue with her Phone previously and when she took it into our service provider they had to downgrade her OS back to stock for it to function properly.If anyone has any solution to the problems stated please reply to this post.

BB Bold 9700 :: Super Slow Battery Charge On Data On USB

Jan 21, 2010

My phone charges sooooooo slow when I plug it into the USB on my computer with the data cable. It takes a couple of hours to go from low to 50%. This just started happening and.

It doesn't appear that anything is wrong with the cable - I've only used it a few times. A lightning bolt is appearing and it is charging for sure. It hasn't always done this - or at least I don't thinks so. I've backed up and restored data on my desktop through the USB without a problem.

BB Bold 9700 :: How Is Orange Overall As Network For 3G Coverage?

Aug 18, 2010

I'm looking to buy the Bold 9700 on Orange basically due to the UMA feature. However, I have a couple of questions which I hope someone can help with

-regarding the branding/software - have Orange added loads of their own software i.e orange world icons etc? And do they cause phone to be compromised in any way compared to O2, Vodafone etc?

- how is Orange overall as a network for 3G coverage?

BB Bold 9700 :: 3G Network - Modem Speeds

Apr 21, 2010

I am trying to make some sense out of the slow modem speeds I am getting on the 3G network. Below is a comparison between the different methods tried and the results. The SIM was transferred into a Sierra wireless card, then the speeds took off. All tests were tried at the same time of day, to the same servers, with IP header compression turned off for the BB connection, all on the 3G networks. I even tried a Rogers SIM for comparison where I could. Changing "modem speeds" on the link to the BB made no difference.
Normally I may just accept the differences, but I am looking to have about 25 users connect this way, to save on having a PCMCIA card or USB, as well as a separate data account. I have connected my notebook to the 9700 via Bluetooth and a USB 2.0 connection. My 9700 is connected to the Telus network, software version (726)...

BB Bold 9700 :: No Access To 3G Network With TMobile

Feb 2, 2010

I had my Bold 9700 delivered from Saudi Arabia. I was absolutely in love with the phone with its incredible speed and my favorite thing about it was the 3G network. It worked absolutely great in Egypt. When I moved back to the US (Ive been here 3 days now), I can only use T-Mobiles EDGE network. If I search manually for networks, it finds AT&Ts 3G network, but I cant use it since Im T-Mobile and not AT&T. When I went to the T-Mobile store, they told me that since T-Mobile didnt sell me the phone, my phone wouldnt find their 3G network. Any idea what I can do to fix this? The phone is brand new, and its a shame that I cant use its best feature

BB Bold :: 9900 And 9930 Crashing While Abroad?

May 23, 2011

Last year my Verizon 9930 and this year my wife's ATT 9900 stopped working after a few days of use overseas. Under both circumstances the phones were perfectly fine for the first few days after which the keyboards became unresponsive (delayed response, not being able to unlock, reboots). Battery pulls did not change anything. Interestingly you could see the email count going up so the phones were connecting. 24 hours after retuning to the US both phones worked as if nothing happened.

BB Bold :: No Signal Or Texts/calls When Abroad?

Jan 4, 2011

I am currently on holiday in Thailand and some of the trip involves me travelling alone. Since I have been here I have no signal and cannot receive/make texts/calls. I was told by friends to turn off roaming when away in order to stop emails, facebook updates and the like coming through on my phone and therefore resulting in a large bill. I emailed my network provider Vodafone but they have responded by saying in order to receive/make texts/calls I have to have roaming switched on?! Is there any way of enabling texts/calls without having constant emails and facebook updates etc coming through? I don't understand why so many people would use Blackberry if you can't switch off these things and just use phone as standard like you can on all other makes of phone to my knowledge.
