BB Curve 8520 - 8530 :: Internet - Ensure Device Has Active Wifi Connection And Try Again

Jul 5, 2010

I am with orange and I have 500MB data per month. When I try and use the mobile network internet it says 'This is a WiFi service. Please ensure your device has an active wifi connection and try again'. Why is this? Also, when i try to update to 5.0 it says I need a data package but it worked on my old phone. And because of this I can't download the app world. The signal goes to SOS a lot as well but I think my house blocks the signal. Currently it says 'gprs' with 2 bars beside it.

BB Curve 8500 :: Ensure Your Device Has An Active Wi-Fi Connection And Try Again

Jun 7, 2010

I've today invested in this device, and I'm having trouble getting the browser to work, I did have a gander round the forums and the blackberry support section about this problem.

I've created the Wi-Fi Connection its come up as "Wlan_089A8C"
I still can't connect to the browser.

I see the browser is "HotSpot Browser" But in the general properties how do I change the Default Browser To another browser for this to work?

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: Stead Red LCD Light When Curve Is Active

Apr 24, 2010

Have had my 8530 for two months now and today I noticed that anytime I push a button on my phone for any reason I get a steady red LCD light. The LCD goes dark when the backlight goes out. The battery is charged and I can make phonecalls. I don't have any outstanding messages and have used the reconcile now option just in case. I scoured the net looking for a solution and the only thing I can find is to do a battery pull or disable the LCD. I definitely don't want to disable it, and I ran across one person who posted that when she did a battery pull that her BB didn't turn back on afterward--so I'm REALLY hesitant to try that!

I haven't upgraded anything on the phone. I was listening to Pandora when this seemed to happen, but I use Pandora every day.Any suggestions/thoughts? I'll do the battery pull if I have to, but I'm hoping to find other solutions.

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: 8530 Putting A DVD On Device Is Possible?

May 5, 2010

I'm very new to the world of Blackberry, but so far I love it. I'm going on a flight tomorrow night and would prefer my own entertainment, so I'm curious if anyone has tried ripping a DVD to the 8530 and if so were you successful. I'd appreciate any tips on making the process as painless as can be. I have a PC if that matters.

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: 8530 Battery - Wifi Turned On

Aug 18, 2010

If i leave my phone unplugged overnight it will drop at least down 20 or 30 percent. The only apps that I have opened that possibly check the internet are facebook & my weather network app. I have the weather app set to check every hour. So how could it drop so fast? I also have wifi turned on but does that kill it that quickly?

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: Is Curve 8530 A Good Device?

May 22, 2010

Is the quality of the device good? My concern is that it is CDMA and GSM. Will that make any difference in network speeds? I don't travel so SIM cards don't matter to me. Is it worth getting the Curve 8530 since it is CDMA?

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: EDGE Connection W/o Data Plan

Mar 31, 2010

I got a new Curve 8520 just resently and have a problem with my internet connection. I use my Curve without data plan/bis. To go in the internet I use Opera 5.0 and for Emails logicmail. To connect to the internet, I changed my APN according to my provider setting:

apn: internet (thats for o2 Germany)
No authentification

Username/PW: blank

On the first day, everything worked just fine, Opera aswell as Logicmail. I also had a EDGE symbol in the upper right corner. On the second date I found, that Opera and logicmail would not connect via Wifi. So I started to play around with settings. Anyway, since then Opera and Logicmail refused to connect via EDGE, however Wifi worked.... I could not figure out the ressons, so I tried to undo my setting changes. And yesterday I was finally able to connect via EDGE again. And here is the funny thing: This morning, I got the same errors agian, when trying to connect via EDGE. I did not do anything with the phone last night, it just refuses to connect. It still shows me the edge sign, but opera always tells me, that it is unable to connect. I set the application application permisson for both programs to "prompt" under the point "internet" to see if the phone even tries to connect, but it does not. Wifi still works fine. It seems that my Blackberry forgot about EDGE and always wants to connect via wifi.Can anyone help me out here?

Jun 25, 2010

This may be a stupid question, but I'm lost, I am trying to sign in to a website: URL... and while the arrow clearly knows that it's a link, when I click on the link nothing happens.

Also, I tried to complete a job search on I could complete all of the fields, but when I clicked on the "search" button, nothing happens.

This is a personal blackberry with no security restrictions, so I'm not sure what I have to turn on that's not turned on.

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: Loses Data Connection & Green Check Mark?

Sep 15, 2010

For the past 3 or 4 days each morning I wake up my 8530 has lost the data connection. When I open "Manage Connections" I see a green check mark next to Mobile Network- Verizon Wireless and Wifi so I know it's connected. If I un-check the Mobile Network and wait for it to disable then reconnect it will work fine and all my e-mails and texts from the night get pushed through. I have great service at my house so I'm not sure why my phone keeps losing the data connection at some point during the night. I am running the latest OS .886 and this is my second 8530 "certified pre-owned device" as my first 8530 died. I also did a battery pull the first day I noticed this which re-connected the data but it happened again when I woke up the next morning.Has this happened to anyone else?

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: BB Recognizes The Network / Can't Connect To Internet

Aug 31, 2010

my BB used to connect to my wireless network but for some odd reason it doesnt anymore: it recognizes the network but cannot connect to the internet. On the other hand, it connects to any other network: ive successfully connected to many friends wireless and many restaurants' wireless without any problem. Its worth mentioning that my BB used to connect fine with my homes wireless and i just woke up one day to find that it isnt working anymore (the wifi sign remains gray, in the "wifi connections" there is a connection and theres a white line in the black box instead of a tick.Is there any way to fix this?

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: No Internet Or Application - Complained To Version

Aug 14, 2010

With no internet or app usage my phone was to 30 percent after only a hour maybe a hour and half of usage. Not even close to the 4.5 hours of usage said. Complained to Verizon and getting the Tour 9630. Not too happy because i will be leaving the trackpad and i hear battery life on the tour is so so. I wanted the new bold but they wouldnt let me. But they said if my new phone gives me problems, then might get the bold. Either way i want a good phone with decent battery.

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: Enabled Memory Cleaning / Device Won't Turn On

Aug 9, 2010

I have been trying to access a website that I normally visit daily and today it was telling me that about memory being full. Its only when i try to access my inbox, yet the the rest of the pages will load (including facebook).I deleted a bunch of pics off my phone and thought if i enabled memory cleaning, it would clear my cache, cookies, etc.
the prompt said it would save changes when the device was turned off and rebooted. I did a battery pull and now what is happening is my issue.

after i pulled the battery, I get a red blink of hte led, then a black screen with a clock in the middle (obviously the loading symbol) and then the screen showing "blackberry" with a loading bar.Once the loading bar is done loading...nothing! It goes back to turning off the device and reloading from the start. It has been doing this for 2 hours and the device will not go to the home screen, it just keeps rebooting itself. I have done 2 or 3 battery pulls now and it keeps doing it. Would it have anything to do with the "memory clean" enablement? or is the peice of cr@p toast now? And have i lost all my contacts??

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: How To Transfer Files / Themes On Device And Locate

Jul 5, 2010

I have a Pearl, doesn't connect to PC, no internet. My brother is letting me use his Curve to transfer a theme to my Pearl. Now basically, i need to know how and where to transfer the Pearl theme to (while the curve is plugged in, and the pearl's micro sd is in it) then remove the SD card and put the SD card it in the pearl, then locate the theme.

When i open the folders for the micro SD card on the computer,(while in the curve) i see no folder for apps or themes. I transfer the alx and cod file into every folder there but i can't find it when i put the micro sd back in my pearl

The next thing ive tried was installing it as an app thru BB manager, it said it transferred ok, but i cant find it on the micro sd card (do they go right to the curves own memory maybe??)
