is the blackberry 8530 for verizon a world phone? if not does anybody know the official release date for the verizon 9650? i heard it was supposed to be today but when i checked their website today it was not out yet
got a 8520 a couple of months ago, and after two weeks the phone speaker would break up when making a call, so you could only hear 1 in 3 words someone was saying, and inbetween was silence.T-mobile sent me a new one out next day, but now after 4 months the new one has started doing it.Can make calls fine with ear piece, speakerphone is working for playing music, haven't tried it for calls, and handset speaker works fine for music too, but breaks up when phoning anyoneThe second time it happened was just after okaying an upgrade. Anyone heard of this before?
I'm trying to use my wife's 8530 as a wireless modem for my laptop. Data plan turned on through Koodo - fine. Run BB desktop, connect the phone, select wireless internet - get a message that "the radio is not turned on"..
is the 8520 housings are compatible with the 8530? I know the answer is probably yes because there's no differences at all in the phone not like the 83XX series. Also, mine is Grey OEM by Telus. I just don't know what colour i'll customize it, any Idea? I like black and white just like my old Tour, but there's white 8520 so it would be less unique
Just wondering if there is a way to block certain phone numbers from calling you?I haven't found any such option in any menu on the BB.am I not looking in the right place, or can you do that by calling your carrier?
I got my sprint curve 8530 last thursday, and so far haven't been having a good experience.
I have horrible battery life with the device. With brightness at 10 percent, ten second backlight, locking the phone when not in use, having wifi and bluetooth off when not in use, and phone off or antenna off when in low service (about four hours), I am lucky to get through the day with a little bit of heavy use (web browsing). I have a few minutes of calls, and mainly texting and web browsing with some email. I expected better battery life out of a blackberry!
The reception on my phone is bad. I have five bars of sprint coverage at my house, but when I pick up the phone and start using it the coverage drops to two bars, zero bars, searching, and can't keep a signal. With one bar of service my phone won't send messages, and then I will lose the bar where my old phone would get one bar solid, sometimes two bars.
I downloaded my lookout virus scanner.Worked great.Did an upgrade from BBapp world and after reboot it starts and the application permission pops up and everything is frozen. My animated screensaver is moving in the background and if I press the alt or caps key the symbol comes on and off but nothing moves and I cant do anything. The phone signal never turns on and the time freezes to when it first starts. I have pulled the battery atleast 20 times and have done the alt caps del reset a bunch too. I email the company of the program and filed a help request but it being the weekend I think Im screwed with them. Can anyone help me out how to get around this I just wanna get my phone back this has been all afternoon.
I currently have a Pearl with Tmobile. My friend gave me his Curve 8520, but his phone was with Sprint. I went to Tmobile and they said that Sprint had to unlock the phone. Sprint said it couldn't be done. One of them are lying to me, but I don't know which one. It shouldn't be a big deal. It should be just changing the software. What should I do?
I just got a 8530 from work and the second I plug it into my pc by the USB cord, it shuts the phone off and the red led comes on. Then the white spinning clocks comes on and then back to the red led and keeps resetting. It does this on both curves we just purchased for work. Same PC works without a hitch for a 9550 and a 9630 same usb cord. As soon as I remove the usb cord from the curves, they boot up fine. Any help would be nice.
so i just upgraded my 8520 OS to 5. i went to lock the phone, and it didn't lock in the way that i was used to. the phone when to sleep instead of locking. is there a way to revert the lock feature back to the way it was, or is this how it locks with OS 5?
when i try to watch a Internet video or listen to an mp3 stream on my sprint 8530, i get "an error has occured attempting to play media." this happens on the cellular network, but not on wi-fi. i am running 220.127.116.116. does anyone else have this problem?
Well i was just wondering if anyone can help me.. I have a blackberry 8520 curve and i want to update the phone software to the v.5.0. Its currently got v.4. When i go to the blackberry site & find the software & click update it opens blackberry desktop manager and then starts to do some searching. Then it says to choose which software i want to install but only gives me the option of the software i have already on the phone or to downgrade my boyfriend has the same phone and i tried it on his yesterday and it worked saying he could install v.5.0.. im thinking i should just take it back to the shop & get them to update it,
Maybe I just can't find it on my 8530, but is there an auto lock feature on this blackberry? Sometimes I forget to and it would be nice if it didn't pocket dial anyone on accident.I know there's auto dimming of the screen, if it locked also when it did that, that would be awesome.
I'm using the native browser on my Curve 8530. With the connection I have, a web page will often take 1-2 minutes to load, if not longer. When I'm reading a page, I will sometimes switch websites, accidentally or intentionally; if I do this, and then try to go back to the page I was reading, I have to wait 1-2 or more minutes all over again before the page is visible.Is there any way to cache web pages in the phone's memory (as you can do on a normal web browser like Firefox), so I don't have to keep going through this?(I've been told you can't have multiple pages open at once on a Curve 8530, but if this is wrong, I'd be happy to hear it.)
how do i reset my phone back to factory os and wipe everything off my phone as if it was bran new. i noticed when i reinstalled the .459 os i still had some of my software on my phone i want to do a clean wipe with a fresh install any help would be nice...
I've noticed that when the Blackberry loading page start up and the little status bar reaches full, it takes a few seconds longer to bring me to the home page. Before, it would fill up, then like 2 seconds later the carrier splash page would come up and then my homescreen. Now, it stays on the black Blackberry loading page for at least 10 seconds before the carrier logo comes up. Is this normal? I don't my phone to die on me or something.
I have an icon on my phone and don't know how to get it off. Its a blue phone with a green dot next to it and theres a 3. My voicemail was messed up when I got it and they fixed that.I'm just wondering if it has to do with my old voicemail. But I want the icon off! Any suggestions?
just picked up a Curve 8520 after using a Storm for a year and a half. The only problem is that the volume during a conversation is just too quiet. The volume is at 100% and I've tried the enhanced bass and treble but its still useless.
Is there anyway to increase my service or reception on this phone? I bearly get a bar inside my house and i live in a good coverage zone. I have virgin mobile. Is there a way to increase my reception maybe by tweaking the internal antenna. Btw where is the internal antenna for this.
I just got my very first blackberry Curve 8530. is if I download the software to my computer can I then charge my phone on any computer or must I download the software on every computer that I'm going to charge my phone on. My dilemma is I would like to be able to charge my phone at work but we aren't allowed to download personal software on our business computer so I sure hope that I'm able to charge my phone without downloading the software.
I just had a buzzing noise coming from the top back of my phone and i was wondering what it was. I have a Blackberry Curve 8530 from sprint. It was kinda weird because even after turning the phone off it was still doing it. I decided to take the battery out and put it back in and see if it was going to still do it. After doing that, it didn't do it no more but im still wondering what it was that caused it. When i was messing with the phone before it started doing it i was playing music and then stopped it. The battery was on half. Could someone please tell me what caused this. I just got the phone from sprint and i really don't want to take it back.
I downloaded a theme OTA and I can't find it anywhere. It said it was for the 8520 OS 4.6, my phone said it was downloaded successfully but it's missing. It shows up on my applications list but not with my themes. I've checked every folder and nook and cranny. I've even restarted my phone. I wouldn't say I'm a BB pro or anything, but I'm fairly experienced so I've tried the obvious things.
Background: bought a new phone and received it Friday, activated it no problem. Tried using the BDM to "switch devices" and it was LOADS of problems installed the newest one. THOUGHT I finally was able to transfer all the info to my new phone, but here's where the real problem starts Okay, when it starts to reboot, that progress bar fills ALLLL the way up, sits there for like 2 minutes, and then restarts AGAIN with the little red light, the progress bar fills ALLLL the way up, sits there for like 2 minutes, and then restarts YET AGAIN and it's been doing this for the last 10 hours! I have removed the battery and media card and EVERYTHING, left it out for like 10 minutes, reinserted the media card and battery and it just keeps doing this. If I try to connect it to the computer, the computer won't recognize it and the BDM says, "Blackberry Desktop Manager cannot communicate with the connected blackberry device. If the device is rebooting or has a dead battery, click Retry to attempt to reconnect once the device reboots. Otherwise you might need to update the blackberrry device software to correct the problem"How in the world am i supposed to update the software on the device if i can't stop it from rebooting?
when viewing my message folder, it shows phone calls sent and received. I want to only see my emails when viewing the folder. Phones made and received are showing in the phone folder and that is want i want. Can anyone help me?
