BB Curve 8520/8530 :: Reset Factory Settings
Everyone says go to options - security options - general options - wipe handheld.
When I go to security options, all the options I have are:
Advanced Security Options
I have been reading that the security wipe won't get rid of everything. When I go into security wipe, it says if I wipe "Emails, Contacts, etc." you will not be able to send or receive email on the device after you wipe it.
Does that mean on this phone ever again, or just from the email addresses I am wiping?

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: Buzzing Noise Coming From Top Back Of Phone
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.

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: Voice Clarity Almost Phone 4 - 5 Days Back
Being a CDMA user for so many years, I enjoyed nice voice clarity on almost any phone. 4-5 days back I have switched to GSM with 8520. Everything is nice but I'm experiencing very odd problem. I really don't know whether it is my mind playing a trick or it is true.
When talking over the phone, I feel the sound from other end is compressed...muffled... whatever you call it but its not clear as I used to get it on my CDMA network. I have tried enhancing options with boosting treble but not much difference. My ears feel pressurized while talking. I have told my wife to check the clarity but she is ok with it. For CDMA conection I'm using Samsung SCH-S379. Its very basic yet very clear compare to 8520.
I'm running on pre loaded 4.6 OS. My phone is made in Hungery 3 and its January 2010 make. Not yet activated BES/BIS. Does upgrading OS to 5.0 helps in improving earpiece voice clarity ?? do we have any other adjustments ?? is there always a difference in voice clarity in GSM and CDMA ??

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: 8520 Will Not Turn Back On
My 8520 was working fine last night but the battery was down to 10% charge.
Charged the battery up and phone worked fine and I turned it off before going to bed.
The phone turned on fine this morning and was showing a full charge. I did turn it off when I got to work and when I went to turn it back on when I went to lunch I got nothing. The LED glows briefly and faintly when I try to power the phone on.
I tried hooking to my car charger but with the same results.

Nokia :: N85 V20.175 - Duplicate Contacts - How To Reset Phone Back To Factory Defaults
I performed a FOTA upgrade from v11.047 to v20.175 and now I have duplicated contacts displayed in my Contacts list.If I go into Contacts and choose "Contacts info" from Options, I get the following prompt:"Select memory:All memories.Phone mem.Phone mem."
So "Phone mem." is listed twice, and no "SIM mem" option, which may explain why my contacts (all stored in phone memory) are now being displayed twice. If I remove a contact, both the deleted contact and it's duplicate both disappear. I'm using a T-Mobile 3G SIM, btw.
I've re-installed v20.175 with NSU, and I still have duplicate contacts, and I've also tried a Factory Reset which didn't delete my contacts - in fact, most of my settings and data rather worryingly survived the "Factory reset".

BB Curve 8520/8530 :: Replacement - Back Up The Tab For Contacts Is Grayed Out And Click
I am getting a replacement 8530 for my current 8530 because my trackpad is off centered and recently I am now able to move it around. I called verizon explained everything and their answer "software problem, we're sending you a new one under your warranty" Whatever, its physical not software, but they are sending me out a replacement anyways so I dont care.
However, how do I put stuff on the new one? I use blackberry desktop manager, and click "Backup" and it backs up. When I connect the new one do I just click "Restore"? Also when I back up, the tab for contacts is grayed out and I CANNOT click it. So I wont be able to restore that, why?
