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.
I've been trying to update my phone for about 2 hrs now and i can't seem to get it to work. I've updated my desktop to v5.0, but everytime i click the link on the website it tells me i have the current version. i checked under "about" and i have v. 184.108.40.206. HOW DO I GET V5.0? oh and i have verizon if that matters.
I was trying to update my BlackBerry Curve 8330m, and it says here that my BlackBerry is compatible with version 5.0, but I tried from Wireless Update and it said there were no updates available. I also tried from the update page and it told me the same thing.
I have two issues here on my 8330.First one is from day one, when I connect to the laptop, the BB does not show up as a drive at all. All my other phones (not BB's) have shown up as a drive where I can open folders within and drag and drop. Why can I not do this with the BB?Most recently the device manager is not recognizing my phone either, I plug it in and it shows an error with the USB, saying the device is not recognized, and in the device manager, I have a yellow exclamation mark saying 'unknown device'.
I have researched these issues online and can't find anything that will solve either of my problems and I'm getting extremely frustrated. At this rate, I'm ready to get rid of the BB and go for something like the iphone if I can't get this working properly. Seems to be more trouble then it's worth
I have a curve 8330. If my phone is not connected to any BES server, do I have to specify my TCP settings under advanced options in order to connect to the internet? Or will it connect without the APN information set?
I have a Cellular South 8330 that I activated on 12/10/09. Everything was great until it started deleting e-mail by itself on the handset. I went back in to the store where it was purchased and was told that I needed a memory card so I bought one. Same problem occurs. I went back to the store and was told that I had to save everything to the card. The salesperson changed a setting on my phone and told me I would not have that problem again. Same problem occurs. I was then told by a former Cellular South employee that I needed to clear the event log. Same problem occurs. I have even posted this issue on blog section of the Cellular South website. No response. I had the Curve with AT&T for two years and never had that problem.
I had gotten my blackberry 8330 at Christmas. From then to now, whenever I would send an sms, receive an sms, get an AIM message, get a myspace message, send anything of mms, receive mms, it would ALL appear in the same folder, the "general messages" folder. Now, when I get a message, i have to go to the sms inbox, or the sms outbox to see them. I do not want my messages categorized, so can anyone help me find a way to put all of my messages back into the general folder like before.
When I get a new message, I go to messages and it says there are no new messages. When I go to "view folders" then to my sms inbox, there it is. I would like to see my messages on the "main" message screen, without ever having to go to "view folders" .
So having a blackberry has turned into a nightmare for me.
Backstory: I have the 8330... this is brand new, not even 30 days old. I had one before but Sprint felt I needed a sofware upgrade due to my phone resetting and they basically locked me out of the phone. How genuis??? So a week's worth of daily 20mile drives to Sprint's repair stores in a torrential downpour and I have a new phone.
ISSUE: When I take pictures on this blackberry and I zoom, my picture comes out very small online. the closer the zoom, the smaller the pic. how do I turn this off. This is the gripe of my life right now! It never happened on my old phone. allmy pics were large (per my setting).Any insight on how i can fix this or should I return this blackberry too?
I am having a problem with my phone and is that it does not charge using the wall cable. It does charge with the USB cable when connected to the PC (for now).The cables are the ones that came with the phone. The USB port of the phone is fine. I tested the cable and it works properly.I think that the OS v220.127.116.118 is causing the phone not to recognize when it is connected to the wall.
I am worried that it is a progressive issue and then the phone will not charge at all.Can anyone tell me if there is a fix for the USB driver of the phone for it to recognize that is connected.
I have a BB curve 8330 from Verizon.. Lets say I text 10 people and I want to delete the texts from just one of those contacts.. Can I do a mass delete with out getting rid of all the other texts with out having to delete them one at a time?

No computer in my home will detect my BB Curve 8330.
I have a Mac and a PC. I have tried both Desktop managers. My g/f has the exact phone and both computers and desktop managers will detect her phone. I have tried all posted solutions (clearing cache. hard reset, checked the mass storage device). Rebooted both computers. The one thing that my USB cable will do on my Mac is charge my phone. There is no "Do you want to enable mass storage... " when I plug it in to the Mac USB.
I tried to watch a video on foxsports.com and the following message comes up:"no video format for your phone".There seems to be no other issues with the site (thumbnails and article is clear).Is there any way I can watch videos from this site (or any site that gives this message)?
I need a way to lock and unlock the keyboard. I have searched a number of websites for an answer to my dilema and it seems several methods are mentioned but none work for me. I need to lock the keyboard when phone is in my pocket.
I have a blackberry 8330 curve with service from alltel. I had originally recorded a message for my voicemail on my phone. i was wondering if anyone knew if it could be changed back to the original factory recording.
I currently have a Blackberry 8330, v18.104.22.168 (Platform 22.214.171.124).I used to be prompted to delete emails off both my blackberry and my home computer's Windows Mail. I think after updating the Blackberry, this option was no longer available, which requires me to read emails on my Blackberry and then to have to delete them off my home computer.
Does anyone know of a way that I can restore this function to my Blackberry?
I just bought a Curve 8330. Had it for about a week, maybe less. Everything was fine until a couple of days ago when the sounds stopped working. Ring tones, incoming text message beeps, etc. just stop working.When I go into the sounds options to preview ringtones, etc. and click play, the play button goes from play, to stop, immediately, regardless of how long the tune is supposed to be.The only thing I've found to fix it, is to pull the battery.
When I did the email set up wizard, I thought my phone would only be for personal do didn't choose the enterprise email server option. Now I need to add my work email account which is through Outlook and cannot do so properly. What steps do I need to do in order to get this email set-up or to be able to change my email settings to have both an hotmail and outlook account set-up?I have a Blackberry Curve 8330
I've done a bit of digging, trying to find a solution to my problem before I posted, but most posts in the vein of a Media Card unrecognized/unable to format trail off into "is your SD card bad?" with no response following. So here's where I stand:
My phone: Blackberry Curve 8330 My Carrier: Verizon My OS: v126.96.36.199
2gb media card has been used in phone since purchase in July '08. As of 2 weeks ago, phone no longer reads media card. Media card is recognized by phone (meaning phone detects whether card is present or not). Error message of "Media card cannot be read. Verify that the memory card is formatted." Attempts to format via phone fail immediately. When plugging into computer via USB (with Mass-Storage Enabled), Blackberry device is recognized, but no media card is present. A greyed-out drive ( I: ) appears in My Computer, but is inaccessable and cannot be checked, opened, or formatted (Error message; "Please insert a disk into drive I: ).
Attempted solutions: Have used 3 different media cards: 2gb Sony, 2gb PNY, 8gb. Each card tested via SD adapter and all read correctly in My Computer: can move files to/from, checkdisk, and reformat. Have formatted all via PC. Each card gives same error "Media card....formatted" as stated above. Hard reset (battery pull) has no effect. Have removed battery for 48 hours (in case there were any stubborn capacitors, or something like that). Have turned Mass Storage, Encryption, and Media Card support On and Off, removed and reinserted card with each parameter changed, no effect (I can give you the list of all of that, but you get the idea. I'm decently thorough). Rolled back the OS to previous version (via Desktop Manager), problem still exists. Re-upgraded to current version, no change.To sum up, the phone works fine, but the media card may as well not be there. It's not the card(s), and I don't think it's the software, given that I changed the OS up and down, so I'm assuming maybe hardware. I'd appreciate any suggestions, and if you need any further info, I'll do my best to provide.
I'm unable to read individual emails when using the Outlook Web Access site in the internet browser window.I am using this to check work email and would rather do it this way (over the internet) than using the e-mail client that is part of the device. I'm able to log-in to my inbox and see everything I should see, however when I try clicking on an individual email to read it, nothing happens. I've tried clicking on the sender's name, the subject line and everything else on the line for that email. When I do that nothing happens.Am I doing this wrong? Is there somewhere else I'm suppose to click? Is there possibly some setting that needs to be turned on or maybe one that is on that should be unchecked?Any help would really, really be appreciated.
In september I bought an 8330 curve. It worked great, and other than a few small things (not comfirming bbm contacts) it worked awesome, solid, never unstable. The screen started to have bubbles on the inside of it, so I took it in on warranty, and was given a new one AFTER I was sent home to make a backup. I get the new phone, came directly home and reloaded the backup. The next day, it started randomly rebooting. Even if it was just sitting there.
Sunday it shut off and when it tried to restart it just went to JVM error 102. If you reset it or did a hard reset it would always go to JVM error 102 when it tried to boot. I was out of town, and use my phone for work, so I was tickled pink, since its supposedly brand new.
Monday night they give me a new one AGAIN because nobody at the store can seem to fix it or figure it out. I go home, reload my data, wich is now a week old, and within a few hours it randomly starts rebooting agian. Then it wouldnt start, just flash the red LED, wich it did regardless of how many times I tried a hard restart. Eventualy this morning after 8 hours of flashing the red LED, I did a hard restart and it work.
I don't download apps. I use the phone, text, email, and I email pictures to my boss. Its the main reason i have a BB, so I dont get killed on MMS message charges, I just have unlimited email and I send the pics on email. The odd time I browse. And I don't do any of the things ppl talk about on crackberry where they are farting around doing things they arent supposed to and thier phone crashes. Any idea why my "new" curves keep doing this? 3rd one in 5 months, and 2 of them in the last week.
Apps? The ones that come on the phone from the factory. I live in terror that any thing else will brick my curve. I even talk nice to it.
