i've blackberry bold 9000 phone. last night i was watching videos on Internet using wifi connection. all of sudden it got stuck and i got white screen. it was around 1:03 am. i was too sleepy so didn't bother to restart the phone and just kept it aside. around at 4 am i got up and found that my bb is dead. i immediately removed battery and tried switching it on. but no luck.then i connected it to my pc using usb for charge( as i don't have wall charger).the red light glows and stays constant whenever its connected(even after i removing battery) to usb. but it don't switch on. even i have already charged (i.e.. kept it connected to my usb) for 4 to 5 hrs. but no luck.
Getting really angry with this phone now, 2nd or 3rd day without it turning on, what happened was it was running out of battery and I plugged it in thinking it was charging, not realising i've not actually turnt the socket on (typical manic mum moment) come back to it and it wasn't wokring, so now I decided to leave it over night on charge, nope... so went and brought a new charger thinking it might be a charger issue. still to no avail. Now its randomly varying between red led flashing with long pauses, sometimes it would start loading with the blackberry screen and loading bar then restart itself back to black screen and red led instead on going on to the main screen, other times its coming up with empty battery and red line through it... i've tried installing the blackberry desktop software to get it working that way, removed battery etc, held down the end call button, all the usual suspect moves.. and still nothing. I really need this phone to be working i've all my numbers, sons photos etc on there, really dont want to do a whole system reset..
I have a blackberry 9700 I've had it for 16 months now. I would say its in the best condition but it was working fine until all of a sudden it switched off. I tried taking out the battery it didn't work I bought a new battery that was fully charged and still nothing happened not even the red light. I have put on charge for a about 1 hour or more some times for the past 4 days and still there isn't any responds. I have taken the battery out for a few hours as well and placed into the phone again and still nothing.
my blackberry bold 9700 which is only about 3 months old, went completely flat this morning, i put it on charge (and its been charging for about 4 hours now) the screen is black, then the red led light comes on, then after a few seconds the horitzontal blackberry line comes on, it gets about 1/4 of the way then it switches off and starts again. i have alt+shift+delete a couple times, i have battery pulled about 20 times, it just continues doing it
So of course there's switch mode from work and "play". I have this issue where when I switch from one the theme changes and if I switch back the theme doesn't change. I thought this would be fix, but I guess I was the only one with this issue. Just updated to .54. I'm of course not going to do anything about it I'll just work with it. Seeing that nothing else is wrong with my phone but that. Which is GOOD. Anyway wanted to see if and one else has this issue. I've had this issue since .52 didn't have it before that.My N8 as current Green running Xeon^4 3.2.1My E72 as backup 1 WhiteMy E63 as backup 2 BLUE (Where's my Icon...?) and..[URL] with the popup notes Nokia sheesh I don't need help from you :/I run Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit/Ubuntu 11.10 64bit on my HP Dv6 1030us (DiViUs)Windows 7 64 bit Pro on my Desktop (Giniro)Green Nokia N8 Current Phone running Xeon^4 3.2.1
I had BB Bold 9700 , I was using it with Du , I cancel my data plan with Du and installed my Etisalat SIM Card.I did not subscribe to Etisalat Plan yet , can I use the Mobile to access my personal email accounts through wireless ONLY until I subscribe with a data plan.
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?
Well as some of you no who helped me (thanks by the way) I got a white screen on my blackberry baby..so I have a warranty being sent out to me, is there a way I can switch all my information over to the new phone..anyone have to do this, to where you can give me suggestions so this goes smoothly. I had berrybuzz on my phone, will i have to buy it again?
can we use one computer to switch two old devices to the two new ones (via the switch device wizard)? Essentially does the desktop software allow me to switch one device, and once that's done can I repeat the process for the other device?
I'm switching from an 8800 to the 9700. When I connected the 8800, whatever it did took a few minutes (it has you connect the old device). Then I connected the 9700 as it asked me to, and that was at least an hour and 15 minutes ago. It says "Task in progress", and on the progress bar it has not moved a millimeter. Like, nothing. I have maybe 30-40 contacts and no extra software, and 3 messenger contacts.
Recently the data on my 9700 will not switch from WiFi to cellular. If it's attached to a WiFi network, everything works fine. However when I leave that network and the BB needs to use EDGE/3G it does nothing. It will not even attempt to transmit or receive unless I do a battery pull. If I leave WiFi off, everything works fine. It is now running OS v126.96.36.1998 by AT&T. I just updated to this OS in hopes that it would fix the issue, but no luck.
Brand new devices.I have a problem with auto complete text. Once I transfer language from eng to other language with the keyboard shortcut (alt+enter ) the auto text stops working. Furthermore, the option box just disappears from the menu (options - text and languages ) !. Reset by battery removal fixes the problem.But, onces you repeat the above action the auto text complete disappears again...Some bug is there.... tried it with all 5 devices of my office.I contacted my provider- they were not aware of the problem and I demonstrated it to them. They dont know how to solve it...
After doing some backups and so, yesterday I started the sofware, conected the 9700 but the situation is different. Desktop appears gray, it recognizes my phone PIN and model, but it doesnt works. It appears freeze. Also the phone icons appears freezed. Shows the PC and the phone, but none moves. I tried with other PC, but the situations remains similar. What is happening?
for some reason the alarm does not work (properly) it did not sound yesterday at all, I tried it in the evening, same thing. It shows the option to snooze & dismiss, but it does not sound... this morning, I had it set for 7.30, the alarm went off at 7.35 - any ideas what's wrong?
I have a PC with windows vista and one for w7, they both have the same problem.Downloaded the divice driver than the device manager but when connet the two device it sais does not have divce softwear and keep on asking for CD - which of course never comes with it. So can not connet the two. How can I fix this problem.
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.
I have a blackberry bold 9700 and a few day ago i start loosing signal and then suddently my sim is not recognised anymore,i tried with a different sim card and is working for a while and then is telling me the same thing.
I own a BlackBerry Bold 9700 that I purchased in the US a couple of years ago. When I downloaded sofware version 6 (in Mumbai), the camera stopped working altogether eventually (first videos and later on pictures). I always get a message " Could not start the camera. Close other applications and try opening the camera again."
I just downloaded the suggested update version 6.0 to my Bold 9700. I didn't touch it while it was loading. It took about 20 min or so, via my lap top.Then is showed downloaded update complete.Well, now my BB screen looks like a bunch of little colored crystals and doesn't work at all.
I've downloaded .656, then extract it...but it doesn't show up in DM under my available updates.Only .330 and .586 show up.(T-Mobile)I upgraded to .586 no problem but now I want to try .656.Where is it?Or is there a .exe file someplace that I should be running?
I just purchased an Unbranded bottom cover and it doesn't fit.
Here's a comparison:
The Top one is the one I received and the bottom one is the stock one, Has anyone else have this issue? It looks like the one I got is a full mold. Any recommendation for solutions? Apart from sending it back, I'm in Canada and seller is in Hong Kong.
I have a New Bold 9700, Software version 188.8.131.525, Carrier AT&T. The "Return Key" Between the Red Telephone end key and the Track Pad, doesn't always work on the first push, sometimes it requires multiple pushes to get it to work.
Example, In the Home screen area, if you hit the home key it lists all your icons, if you hit the Return Key, it works most of the time, but many times it will require either another push or a push and hold to work. I went into the About, Applications, 3rd party apps listing I pushed the return key,, and it required multiple pushes to work-, ( It should return you to your starting point)
I have already done a Battery Pull while the device was on, I thought it got better but, no such luck, same thing again.
I also thought that maybe the button or pad is "Stiff" and just needs a break-in period? I don't know.
