my blackberry bold 9900 appears to be frozen I assume as I started doing the software update since 2pm today and yet its still not finished? It has been 8hours now. It seems to have frozen on 14%. Now I have tried rebooting my phone many times but it keeps on taking me back to the software update page. I am currently unable to access anything on my blackberry device.
Update for new OS has frozen it has done this once, so I unplugged it after 5 hours and lost all my contacts it has done it again now on messages I do not want to lose those as well anyway of making it get going again?
I did an update on my BB (worst decision ever) and now it is frozen on social feeds. The overall backup progress is at 6% and will not move at all.This is my business phone and it needs to work ASAP.I'm completely annoyed (though not surprised) that this has happened. The phone will not connect to the computer so I'm basically stuck with whatever I can do via the phone. I've removed the battery three times already and the same thing happens.
So, I went to check if there was a new OS update. There was, so I downloaded and am currently installing it. However, it's been "installing" for 8 hours now, and it's stuck on 14% Overall backup progress. And 0% Social Feeds.Also, not sure if it's related. (probably is) but my Signal is off and i have no network connection. And I've got good coverage usually at home. I realised the problem about 7 hours in, after it said it would only be 2. So I battery pulled it, and it didn't work, then I tried battery and sim pulling, that didn't work. I've tried hooking it up to my blackberry desktop. It can't pick the device up because of it.
I have a BB 9900 that is only a week old.The BB works perfectly, that is until someone calls me.I can answer the phone, hear and speak with the person on the other end - no issues. I can use BBM, texting etc, no issues.The problem occurs when I try to hang up after someone calls me. The phone freezes.I can press the hang up button, but it does not return to the main screen.It freezes at the caller ID screen and I have to yank the battery out of it to get back to the main screen that has all the icons on it.
I tried to upgrade the software on my 9900.It downloaded well. Once it started installing it, the 9900 froze at 3% backing up social feeds. It has been like this for hours. I have no use of my phone. how to unfreeze it.
prior to this freezing of my phone i was playing music and i was trying to check out a picture a friend sent to me, i downloaded a couple of apps like screen grabber, picstory,naija pings,bible and a few stuffs and took picures with it all of a sudden when i was chatting with a friend it went off completely and never came back on what do i do
I'm currently using a Bold 9900 under T-Mobile. The phone repeats the letters "n" and "m" nonstop. If I leave my phone down, it would show "nmnmnmnmnmnm" after a minute. The keyboard, trackpad, and unlock buttons are also not responsive. I've tried the batter pull numerous times, and it has shown improvement once (I was able to type in my password and go into the home menu). Soon after that the problem returned. The phone just seems half dead and its reponse to my actions are random. Sometimes I'm unable to unlock my phone even after pressing the unlock button numerous times.
I did go to a beach with my phone. But there was no water or sand damage. It was in my hotel room the whole time. as the phone is completely unuseable right now. The screen works, but I am unable to press any keys to unlock/use my phone.
I am attempting to update the OS on my BB Bold 9700, as suggested by the BB Deskyop Sofware. The update started and seemed to be progressing but about 3/4 of the way through it is frozen at "Loading module"net_rim_speech_data_en_US.cod".
What should I do? The system warns "do not disconnect your device or stop this process as it could make your device unusable"
Later: I solved this problem by disconnecting the phone from the PC and downloading the OS6 package from the Blackberry.com/Downloads site, re-installing the Blackberry Deskop Sofware and re-starting the update process, this time with all power saving on the PC turned off.
I tried to update me phone to 7 OS but it just seemed to not be doing anything, and I know i shouldnt have but I took out the battery and put it back in but now it would turn on it just goes to a screen with a egg timer ! What do I do to get it back working?
BB Bold 9780 is frozen for days. I downloaded an update from APP World and when I rebooted device it shows BB Logo and the loading line fills up from left to right but never changes screen. The phone is locked in this mode. Is there a manual reset pinhole? The update was for the Traveler APP upgrade free.
Today I attempted to upgrade to the new 5.0 OS via Desktop Manager. The backup was completed and software installed. The process stalled on the reboot portion. My phone turned on, and I saw the blackberry screen with the loading bar below. The loading bar filled up and then my usual AT&T World Phone orange screen came up (which usually lasts for about 5 seconds before the home screen comes up). However, the orange screen lasted over an hour. Since the software was already installed I did a battery pull. The phone started up to the same AT&T screen and stops. The backlight still dims as usual, and comes back up on a button push but its stuck there with no home screen, now for another 3 hrs. It won't allow me to try to wipe or reinstall the OS because the phone has to be started to do so, and it says it can't connect to the phone (but it does recognize my device when its plugged into the computer). I have searched the forums for similar problems but haven't found any others with my problem.
My Blackberry Bold 9900 is running OS 7.0 and i've tried updating it through the blackberry site and the blackberry desktop manager and both say I'm running the most up-to-date version. Is there anything I can do to update to OS7.1?
I have updated in the past and all was fine but 2 days ago i tried to back up and update using the BlackBerry desktop software and it gets about halfway through (to backing up sms messages) then it stops.
I have checked the topic for the OS for my Bold 9900, but unfortunately, my provider is not listed there (klarmobil in Germany). The current OS on it is 18.104.22.168 from Mail 2011. How can I get it updated?
My device got bricked from updating. Got stuck at "Connecting to boot ROM". Device died, does not respond to anything, device manager says to change settings in computer control panel, followed the steps. Connecting and reconnecting device doesnt do anything, battery pull doesnt do anything, device manager can wake up the phone.
While I've seen the release of the software online, my software update shows the message: "your blackberry is up to date" while my software version is 7.0.0 bundle 1346. I have sent the device to the dealer, tried online solutions and couldn't do it. The bizarre thing is that others having the same device are able to update to 7.1 while I can't.
Last night I setup my phone to perform the new software update as I went to bed so that it would do it overnight. This morning? App error 602 and 603 with a white screen of death. When I turn the phone on it says backing up data (which I'm pretty sure it did completely last night), and it does not go progress... almost like there is no data to backup. I can't restore to factory defaults and I can't connect to the Desktop Manager for any period of time. I can't think of anything that I could do unless there was a way to restore the phone to factory defaults without the phone being turned on.

My wife has a Rogers Bold 9900 running version 188.8.131.521.She has tried to change her BBM status picture and her Blackberry shows the changed picture. However, none of her BBM contacts can see the changed picture.Her BBM version is 184.108.40.206.We have tried waiting for several days, soft resets, battery pulls, deleting BBM contacts and replacing them.She is a new Blackberry owner and has only 12 BBM contacts, none of which can see her updated status pictures. They can only see the BBM status picture she initially saved when she first started BBM.Interestingly enough, the text of her status messages are viewable as she changes the text. it is only the picture that won't update on her contacts BBM.
My phone automatically started to update itself at 12pm today, it froze on 14%, after 2 hours i took out the battery and the sim and tried to reboot my phone, once the phone turned back on it went straight back onto the software update. it has now been frozen on 14% for 4 hours and i am really unhappy!
I updated the OS on my Bold 9900 to 7.1 Bundle 1149 (v.220.127.116.112 Platform 18.104.22.1686) and it's now extremely slow. The phone does not react quickly and it takes up to an hour to restart after battery pull.
Yesterday I updated by 9900 to 7.1.0 bundle 1149. I'm on Vodafone UK.
Since doing so the Map icon has dissapeared from my phone and on searching can't be found anywhere. When I look in my applications (installed and de-installed) it isn't there either. I've looked on app world to see if I could find it there to re-download, but can't find it there either.
