BB Curve 8300 :: 8310 Curve Does Not Connect At All

Jul 12, 2010

After trying 3 days to get my BB 8310 Curve connected to my network provider (I do have a data plan and internet plan) Iīm a little bit upset.

The problem: I have all necessary data-plans and also registered my BB on the internet at the Web-Page (BIS?).Ok, my handheld is also recognised and the system doesnīt complain.But: on my handheld I can see only the word "edge" (in small letters - this shows that no data-plan is active as we know, but thatīs not true) and not "EDGE" as it should be.An even better suspicicous issue: I called with the hotline from my provider and he also could see within his database that my handheld is registered and all plans were active.

So I tried following:
I inserted my SIM to another BB and it worked! (not so with my BB)
I also inserted another SIM from my colleague (who also uses a BB) and what happened? Nothing - also no connection.

So I assume that thereīs somehow a bug in my handheld? Has anybody an idea? I would very appreciate it.

By the way, I have the latest OS:

BB Curve 8300 :: SW Update BRICKED In 8310

Feb 4, 2010

I'm new to these forums, and to the BlackBerry, having had my 8310 for only a few months (through my company). My daughter, however, has had her 8310 Curve since last March, and she has had intermittent problems with it. She has had to have it replaced under warranty by AT&T twice. This last time, she discovered that her sounds had ceased her alarm did nothing when it went off. The sounds later returned mysteriously, but she decided that that was the last straw. She wanted to take it back to the AT&T warranty center to get it replaced again, but I suggested she attempt to upgrade her system first. My theory was, since the new software was released, it would make sense to upgrade. My company phone has been upgraded (OTA) with no problems, so I thought (silly me) it would be just as easy to do my daughter's Curve.

The first thing I did was go to her Options/Advanced Options screen to do a wireless upgrade. However, that option was not available on that screen. Odd, I thought her phone and mine are identical, and mine had the wireless upgrade option. So I came to these forums and looked for some assistance, and found the sticky at the top of the forum about the 4.5 software upgrade. I followed the link to the BlackBerry page that contained the download for the AT&T software (making sure I selected the AT&T multilanguage version of I downloaded that version, but decided before launching it to use BlackBerry Desktop Manager instead. It dutifully reported that her Curve needed a software upgrade to, so I decided to attempt the upgrade over the USB connection. When it got to the point where it had backed up her phone and was ready to do the system backup prior to wiping it, the connection broke. Don't know why - I used the BB-supplied USB cable. So, the upgrade didn't happen that way. The next thing I did was launch the AT&T download that I had retrieved from the BB link. It dutifully installed the latest BB Desktop Manager (5.0.1, I think), then when I hooked her Curve up to the computer it once again reported that she needed a software upgrade. I elected to do the upgrade, and it went through the process again, backing up the Curve to my computer and getting ready to wipe. This time, it again broke the connection, but when I chose "Retry" it seemed to proceed as normal, erasing the device in preparation for upgrading. Now the fun begins. When the actual upgrade began, the device broke the connection again. I once again got the dialog box with the "Retry" and "Cancel" boxes, and clicked "Retry." But when I did that, the screen on the Curve went white and revealed an icon which I can only assume means, "No OS installed," along with the small number "507" underneath. The BB Desktop Manager appeared to be attempting to upgrade the software, but after leaving it setting like that all night there was no change in the status. So it is well and truly bricked.

My question now is, what is my recourse? Is there any possible way to recover this device (since the computer does not recognize it through the USB connection)? Do I simply need to take it back to AT&T and have them replace it (again)? And will the backup I did last night be restorable to the new BB (assuming they give her another Curve)? I hope to get some answers fairly quickly, because I'll be able to hear the eruption from here when she discovers her Curve is a paperweight. Thanks in advance for your help, and your availability for BlackBerry users.

Let me tell you I own 8250 and did manage install additional language into mine, but will it be possible to use the same link and instructions on her device as well as I did use on mine? Or it has to be different just because we do have different series?

BB Curve 8300 :: 8310 During Update Phone Locked Itself

Feb 23, 2010

I got a BB 8310 from my girlfriend. While tryin to update to simply sync my music to the phone, i decided to update the phone's software which has turned into a disaster! While updating, during the screen where it says "DO NOT UNPLUG", the faulty USB cable came out leaving the phone unfinished. Now all the phone does is blink with a red light. It does NOT come on at all. The screen remains black. When its plugged in to the computer now, it doesn't read its a BlackBerry. It says "USB device not recognized".

Now I know that during the installation the phone's system files where probably deleted. And not replaced. So what now? Is there something I can do to have the phone recognized by my computer? It was backed-up before the new installations took place, but does not help because the computer is not recognizing the phone. HELP PLEASE! I would hate to lose my new BlackBerry before I actually get to enjoy it.

BB Curve 8300 :: 8310 Email Folder Not Showing New Mail Alert

Jan 6, 2010

I have several email folders on my blackberry. When I recieve an email it only shows up on the "messages" folder.My previous BB would show the new mail indicator in both "Messages" folder and the specific email folder it belonged in. If I go to the specific folder, the email is inside, it just will not alert me to this folder.Hope this makes sense.Currently I have 4 specific email folders, a text folder, and a messages folder.
How can I fix this? I have an 8310 that was just replaced by another 8310 thru insurance coverage.

Jan 29, 2010

I had downloaded Opera mini 4.2 and iheartradio and slacker radio and they all worked perfect for the past 3 days and then all of a sudden they do not work. I get timed out of logins and even google maps app on my phone wont connect. The only app that will connect to the internet is the BB browser (the one that looks like a globe with halo around it). There are no other apps running causing a clog up. There is 6.8GB open in memory, so im stumped????? Someone please help me Im racking my brain trying to figure out what would cause this. The last time it worked was in the morning listening to slacker, then went to lunch tried to get on Opera wouldn't connect, so i got on BB browser, from then on it wont connect with any other app.

BB Curve 83xx :: JVM Error 513 Curve 8310 - How To Get Computer To Recognize USB Connection

May 4, 2010

I was given a BB Curve 8310 to attempt a repair. When I attach the USB cable to the BB the system tray does not pop up with a notification that says "found new hardware" like it normally does when you plug a BB in. When the phone boots up it displays error msg " JVM Error 513". I attempted to looking into the device by using "cracmem" and "JL_Cmder" and no data is to be found and thus there is nothing to wipe. I suspect that the device has already been wiped thus the no data. I have pulled the battery from the phone and reinstalled; unplugged the usb cable during the BB boot process and nothing is happening. The DM application loader will not allow me to procede due to computer not recognizing the BB device thus it is not generating the "USB:UNKNOWN".

BB Curve 8300 :: 8520 Curve Only One Email Option?

Aug 18, 2010

I recieved my Curve 8520 6 days ago and I am still waiting on my service provider contacting me about the Blackberry Tariff HOWEVER when setting up my phone using the Wizard Setup I did not have two options for the email setup, only Enterprise Email Activation...I have never had one, this is my first Blackberry. How do I apply the other option of Add An Email Address? Or does this mean that the phone has been used by someone else (even though it was bought from my service provider "brand new"), or a fault has arisen? What can be done?

BB Curve 8300 :: Transfer Contacts To A Curve 8330 On A BES

Jan 7, 2010

I'm a BB newbie but recently received one for work. My problem is trying to transfer the contacts from my old cell phone (Sanyo SCP-7050) to my new Curve 8330. I took it to my local Sprint store and they said the contacts can't be transferred because the BB is registered on a BES. The Bluetooth connection won't work either, I assume for the same reason.Am I out of luck or is there some other way I can get the contacts into my BB? I have the contacts stored as individual business card files (.vcf) and was hoping there is a way to use the micro SD card to load them on somehow.

It is rather unfortunate. My Curve 8310 keeps going off and never gets to finish booting. It comes on, shows the hourglass image and in less that few seconds, the screen goes black, the red led light comes on and starts booting all over. This cycle continued until the battery gets fully drained.

BB Curve 8310 :: Turning Itself Off Randomly

Jan 22, 2010

I just bought a used 8310 from a bidding website, and the problem ive got is the phone is usable as long as not much is being done on it, but when you start using apps like fb, msn, bbm and others(not at once) somehow the phone shuts down itself without any warning, and it cant be turned on unless its plugged to electricity or battery is removed and replaced, only to be shut down in short time after its turned on, for it to be somehow usable for some time more it must be charged for a few. I checked the status option and its got plenty free space(24mb) ive spent countless hours researching for the same problem online, and many say its the OS, but ive downgraded it, then ugraded it, rebooted it, master rebooted it, done everything to it but technically nothing works(after OS upgrade it worked perfectly with apps for around 3 hours). Oh and i forgot to say battery compsuption seems quite high, after its done charging its at 100%, then use msn and fb for around and hour and goes down to 80% couple of shut downs and turn ons after its at 5%. So, anyone has an idea what the problem might be? I dont want to buy a new battery to later find out its the phone that its deffective, and if its deffective anyone had any luck repairing it? the phone works perfectly while plugged in to an outlet or pc, it does not shut itself off at all.
