BB Bold :: Faulty 9780 - Keeps Turning Off?

Aug 31, 2011

In short - i purchased a 2nd user bold 9780 off eBay back in April / May timeThe phone was like new and worked fine until recently the thing began turning itself off.There is no pattern to it - its very irregular which makes it even more annoying.Essentially i will be writing a SMS or BBM and it will turn off. I then have to take the battery out and reboot the phone. This can happen once a day, or every couple of minutes. Now .... i believe the phone is still in warranty so i went to the vendor who originally sold the phone to the person i bought it off (Virgin Media) I know this as it's their branding all over the phone / box.

Firstly Virgin where reluctant to help me as i wasn't the person who originally purchased the phone. This i didn't buy as, at the end of the the phone is still in warranty. After the half witt behind made to enquires and checked the serial number of the phone against there records - it showed that the previous owners owes Virgin Media money on a outstanding bill .

BB Bold :: 9780 Keeps Turning Itself Off

Oct 16, 2010

My Blackberry Bold 9780 keeps turning itself off, in my pocket or when I put it down on a table. At first I thought it might be a problem with the battery so I bought a new genuine battery for Blackberry and put it in my phone but I was still having the same problem. I decided to send a tweet to @BlackberryHelp on Twitter and they advised me to do a security wipe, which I did, and still my phone kept turning itself off. I sent them another tweet and another message but they haven't replied. I'm getting a little bit, put it this way, frustrated that when i've paid for a premium smartphone at over £400 I'm having problems after owning the phone for just over 6 months. The phone is therefore still under warrenty but I thought I would just put a message on here first before I contact them to see if it is a small fix that I can do myself rather than living without my Blackberry while it's sent off to be fixed.

I am getting quite fed up now because, I get the Blackberry logo up and I have to wait for the bar to go across (see below image) which takes AGES. I'd hate to rely on the phone in an emergency! After the BBM and e-mail outages not so long ago and now this, i'm SERIOUSLY considering scrapping my Blackberry all together and buying the new iPhone 4S.

BB Bold :: 9780 Screen Turning White And Then Returns To Normal

Aug 2, 2012

I purchased a Blackberry 9780 18 months ago. The screen keeps turning white and would return to normal in minutes or even hours. I obviously tried to do a full reboot, remove and replace the battery but it does not resolve the issue. Is this a defect? Although I do not see anything on the screen except for white, I can still receive call and make calls using the speed dial.

Asha 30/40 Series :: 5130-c2 Xm Faulty Device / Faulty Firmware

Sep 7, 2011

i have a nokia 5130-c2 xm for about a year and a half but i only used it for about 11 months but the other months it went for repairs 3 times. 1st time it displayed a massage "contact service"(needed a firmware upgrade from version 6.6). 2nd & 3rd time it never wanted to boot like when windows on your pc never loaded. Now the 4th time is near, not even a month has passed since i went to collect my repaired phone. Would you say the device its self is faulty or just the firmware. I never went to sites that could send me viruses or use any other themes(custom) just wanna know if i should request a new phone since i still have 6 months of warranty left.

BB Bold 9700 :: Faulty Track Pad?

Mar 16, 2010

I just noticed today that the trackpad on my phone has become super sensitive, but not for scrolling, only when pressing down to open apps. It's weird. It seems like it's sunken down and not level with the other buttons anymore and actually tilts down towards the keyboard. I've only had this phone for about a month and was wondering if anyone else has had this problem and if it is truly a faulty trackpad. If so then its back to AT&T for a replacement!

Jul 17, 2010

I have a 9700 and over the last 2 days when I try to make a call the phone switches between headphones and headset and if I try to select options and activate headset the phone completely ignores the request and keeps switching between functions , the only way I can make a call is to put ipod headphones into the jack port and then I can select activate handset and the phone will let me make a call normally , however if I pull the headphones out during a call it will start to switch between functions again .

BB Bold :: 9900: Faulty Camera Displaying Grey Line?

Sep 13, 2012

When I use the camera, it just displays 8 vertical bars of equal width, each a different shade of grey. If I cover the camera then the whole screen goes black. If I take the picture, the same image is saved and can be selected and viewed. Device details below.

Bold 9900 on T-Mobile (UK). Only bought it a couple of weeks ago.7.1 Bundle 1149 (v7.1.0.342, Platform a couple of apps installed, loads of free space.

I expect this will be an RMA. Very disappointed that I can't find a contact phone number for Blackberry considering how much I paid for it.

Nokia :: N97 Music Player - Faulty Icons

Apr 11, 2010

I seem to have exhausted the internet in looking for a solution.

Basically the music player short cut icon on the desktop(?) AND the 'last played' icon in the player do not work. What this leads to is if I start playing a song and move away from that playing page I cannot get back and switch off the music!

I have tried re-installing the firmware but to no avail.

BB Torch :: Battery Life And Faulty USB Cable?

Jan 26, 2012

I used to be an employee at RIM until June of last year and at the end of July I purchased myself the white torch 9800.I have had nothing but problems with it regarding the battery life and the USB cable that came with it. My battery lasts 1 day if I am lucky and my USB cable does not always get recognized.I have been in contact with Rogers, had my phone in for repair, and reloaded my operating system with no luck. Tired to contact RIM support but got nowhere and Rogers is giving me the run around.All I need is a new battery and honestly I can't afford one nor do I feel I need to purchase one since the battery has been **bleep** since the beginning pretty much.

I have a BB Bold 9780 with an older version of software on it (cannot confirm as device is white screened with error messages on it).The device was showing Error 561, so I attempted a software update to fix fault.The device has completed the install but cannot connect to the device to reboot - have retried 3 times and waited the half an hour each time only to get an error message on PC.More than one PC tried, still showing fault.Error 507 on the support pages suggests the device does not have OS on it, is there anyway to reload this without Desktop Manager?
