BB Bold :: 9900 Won't Reboot After Software Update
Nov 13, 2012
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.
I have had the phone for about 6 months - T-Mobile. I recently updated the software and noticed the touch track ball was not working. I pulled the battery and now it will not boot up and has blinking red light.
Was chatting on my bold 9900 when all of a sudden it just reboots automatically. It stuck at around 80% of reboot on the screen and has not moved. Took the batteries and SIM out, in beginning it was rebooting fine but again stops at the same spot (at around 80%) and has not moved. What should I do?
Have had 9900 for nearly a week. Every time I switch off or use the auto off I cannot switch back on using the power key. I have to pull the battery and it reboots once replaced. The auto on function does not work either. I removed all my extra applications with no success. The battery life is very short. I can only get 12 hours when receiving 4 calls , making 2 calls and receiving 10 emails.
I had a Blackberry bold 9900 which suffered an irrecoverable crash in December last year. Orange sent me a replacement. Last night, I went to get my phone and tried switching it on with the button at the top. It didn't come on. The phone would only reboot to 70%. I read on a forum to remove the battery and sim card and reinsert. The phone does not come on at all now. I've tried charging with/without battery, with/without sim card. I've tried everything on the internet. all my contacts are on the phone, I assumed this would be safe as it was supposed to do a regular back up. Is there a fix for the phone, if not, how do I access these backups that the phone was doing?
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 188.8.131.52 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.
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?

My wife has a Rogers Bold 9900 running version 18.104.22.1681.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 22.214.171.124.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!
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.
I updated the OS on my Bold 9900 to 7.1 Bundle 1149 (v.126.96.36.1992 Platform 188.8.131.526) 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.
Tried running the new software update and all seemed to go fine at first, but now the 'overall backup progress' bar has been dead at 9% for a while and the 'social feeds' above has been stuck on 0% for the same amount of time. Ive tried rebooting but whenever i do this, the update starts up again and gets to the same point before stopping again.
I have upgrade my bbm to a new version. But I have trouble here. My display picture can't update, so all my friends can't see my picture (just blank like no photos). I use blackberry bold 9900 with OS 7.1Blackberry Messenger Version 184.108.40.206Country IndonesianBBM also can't connect to BBM connect like facebook, etc. It must failed when step 2 verifying to bbm. P
I get following error message whenever I try to update software of my device the application "help" cannot be loaded, because it requires following applications that are not available:net.rim.java.browser?
After doing the upgrade this week, I notice there are some glitches. I can no longer send a photo to a BBM contact directly - Send to BBM group is an option, not BBM contact. I can attach a picture from BBM, but with small thumbnails it can be difficult.
Some of my apps like Popup, no longer work. Might be more..just slowly trying them out.
