BB Curve 8520/8530 :: Reset Phone Back To Factory Os?
May 24, 2010
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 was playin with my girl's phone tryin to guess her password and after too many attempts the phone seems to have factory reset. The pictures are still loaded so I believe the SD card wasn't reformatted. How do I reset it?
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 Encryption Firewall Information Security Wipe
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?
my daughters fone wasnt sending or recieving texts or calls, contacted o2 they said do factory hard reset, the fone worked for a while after but kept restarting itself, now it will not switch on at all and when tryin to charge it either displays a battery sign with a red cross or the bb light flashes intermitting...
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.
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 ??
my 8530 will suddenly, and for no apparent reason, decide to restart itself. I haven't noticed a pattern as to when it does this, and it doesn't seem to be a regular interval. I'll have it sitting next to me on the table, and suddenly it lights up, shuts down, and starts back up, and carries on as if nothing happened.
I was given an LG Keybo, model no. NKLG9100, by a friend and I would like to know how to reset the phone back to factory default. My friend didn't know how to reset the phone so they thought maybe I could. Any help would be nice as I'd like to use this phone and get rid of my old one.
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.
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".
I have got a blackberry of my nephew and I can't change blackberry ID to mine as he has forgotten his ID and password so it won't let me change it so is there anyway I can reset phone ta please this is for a blackberry curve 8520.
My Berry isnt stolen and I have used it problem free for a while. I started to use a password yesterday. Woke up today....and have a white screen with JVM 513 reset. I can do nothing to change it. Dont know how to download anything etc etc as I can do nothing to get out of here.
I updated my new VZW 8530 to the new 508 OS and just realized that the memo pad & help apps are missing. Oh, and now I see docs to go is gone as well. What's up? Docs to go should be available on the app store, but how do I get the memo pad back?
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
Each time my phone has to restart or reboot, my email icon which is AOL(green envelope w/ a blue AOL/logo @ bottom of envelope) disappears and the standard icon appears in home screen. Before to get it back, i go to email setup and delete it then add it back, then AOL icon returns. Now doing it the same way, my green AOL icon does not return anymore! just the standard one, can anybody help on how to get it back? Please!!Thanks!!
So with my 8530 ill be texting my friend and then ill go to type my message and when i enter it sometimes it doesnt show up, and then sometimes if i try to scroll up to see the earlier messages and then try to scroll back down, it wont let me scroll all the way back down, so then i click back and then try to go into that chat with the person and it wont even let me in, and if it does it takes forever. tried a battery pull.
my wifes 8530 we just did the BB App World upgrade. Now we can't see or find the icon to open and use it. After being on the phone with Verizon for a while they contacted BB and this is what I was told to do.
-Download BB desktop manager on my computer -Backup all data from the phone -Do a hard reset which will delete all data from the phone -Reinstall all data from desktop manager back to phone and then the icon should appear
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?
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 just bought my first blackberry device: a Blackberry Curve 8350i off craigslist. It works great so far but there are still the contacts and email address information from the previous owner i guess. Is there a way to reset the phone to factory settings?
Can the blackberry desktop manager software remotely wipe out all data and reset it to factory settings? I have bb curve 8530 and I have no information on what software update exactly is the desktop manager.
Using 9550 as a MP3 player - not connected to phone service. suddenly not working saying license is expired. Spent hours trying to fix w/rhapsody tech supp. They say I need to reset OS back to factory settings. How?
I bought a 6900, and I am wondering how do I reset the phone back to the factory settings...The tried to stylus + soft reset on the bottom and that does not really clear anything out. How would I hard reset the phone?
I would assume it needs to be done through iTunes? Do they require a credit card to sign up?I have a unlocked/jailbroken iPhone 2G. I want to start over fresh and be able to download the apps I want there is tons of junk on here from the previous owner.The old owner's account info is stored to get to the app store but I dont know his password so I cant even download anything.Hopefully its not too complicated. But I just want to make sure it wont re-lock itself to AT&T.
I currently have an unlocked AT&T Curve 8310 that I use on T Mobile. I am having problems disabling the password. When you go to Password, ONLY enable appears. When you click on enable, technically enable & disable are supposed to appear. It has been recomended that I set the phone back to Factory Settings in order to get back the 'disable' on the password. My question: IF I set the phone back to Factory Settings, will it re-lock the phone again? Thanks.
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
