BB Curve :: 8520 Won't Retrieve Mms Or Connect To Wifi
Apr 27, 2012
i have been sent an mms but i cannot retrieve it and im also having trouble with the wifi, i have a home router and i have it up via the manual instructions, it will show the wifi name on the top of the screen but when i try to connection to the net it says unable to connect?
i have recently upgraded the software on my phone and now i cant connect to any wifi spots at work or at home. the wifi icon just stays grey but at the top of the phone, it shows i am connected to networks.
where i live i have no mobile signal and i rely on the WIFI to get my emails through.
When I bought this device, my wi-fi connection is doing well but after a month of using, I suddenly have trouble connecting to the internet. Instead of a green tickmark next to the wi-fi setting, it's a white dash that has been appearing. The wi-fi logo at the top of the screen is colored gray and there's a word "edge" over it.
I'm trying to use my Curve 8520 to connect to the internet using my home Wi-Fi. I have not trouble connecting and downloading apps, or using web sites. The problem comes when I try to use one of the apps which needs and internet connection (Blackberry App World, Facebook, Google, etc.). All of these apps generate an error message saying that they are having trouble connecting to the internet and that I should verify my network connections. This leads me to believe I have a setting wrong somewhere.
i am trying to connect my blackberry curve 8520 to my own wi-fi at home, but it will not connect me to the router?its says to enter a pin to the router... i have watched videos on Internet and followed them step by step, but yet it still does not connect, this is what i have done:
-went to main menu -clicked on 'manage connections' -made sure the 'wi-fi on' box is ticked -then clicked 'set up wi-fi network' -scan for networks -clicked on the network which is my router -then it comes up saying
'provisioning wi-fi profiles...enter this pin into your wireless router: 18104707 time remaining 4:11.'
I already set up my wifi network yesterday and i was able to browse but it stopped working just this morning. It prompted that the available wifi network is available but each time I am attempting to connect it says: Unable to connect. Reason Failure to connect to the network.
I have a home WiFi network and can connect my BB 8520 curve to it successfully and it is able to browse and use apps etc. How-ever everyday or two even though it remains connected to WiFi it suddenly is not able to browse. I need to restart the BB or Router or both and then it reconnects and can browse again. What could be causing this ?I am unable to add or be added to other BB's in terms of using the IM. Contacts that I am trying to add remain in pending (waiting for authorization). I do not have a data plan with my 3G network provider as I only want to use data related functions when connected to my home Wi-Fi. What could be causing the problem?
I cant get my daughters 8520 to connect to our home wifi. I have searched and found my wifi,saved it and it says connected. But when i click on the browser button it says unable to connect or sometimes just a blank white screen. I have followed the setup advice but no joy.
I got an unlocked blackberry curve 8520 in February. I did get it from Poland but everything is the same. I don't have a data package, but about a two weeks ago I found out I could connect to wifi anyways. I did this and it worked at my house all day that day. Then I left and when I came back it wouldn't connect to the router it was previously connected to or any others. After searching forums I've tried changing all kinds of settings but they all seem to be where they were supposed to be. I did notice though when I'm in 'options> wifi> menu> wifi tools> wifi diagnostics the status bar says "IP address no loner valid" for all the routers I try to connect to.
currently I am running Opera mini on the 8520 Curve.I have turned on gprs & wifi.How can I make sure the Opera Mini uses wifi to connect to the internet? It does not show wifi or gprs in the right top corner.
Recently, my wife got a Curve 8520 from Rogers and I want to transfer some photos and stuff to my PC. When I connect it via USB, I get the familiar sound that says it detects it, but it doesn't show up anywhere on my list of devices. Blackberry Desktop Software recognizes it, but won't sync any media; it says media storage unavailable. Mass Media Mode on the phone is on. Some things to note: Running Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2 Running Blackberry Desktop Software v22.214.171.124 I am not using a hub to connect the BB. I also have a Bold 9000, than connects no problem, albeit a different USB cable.
I have changed my PC so reloaded the desktop software - all was OK and it worked perfectly. It then auto-updated from the update site to 126.96.36.199 and a new driver loaded - now the new software loads when I connect the USB port to my 8520 but it sits there with "connect your Blackberry Device" .
I have deleted and downloaded the software three times now.
I'm currently in possession of a white 8520. The device doesn't load the OS in any way. I've tried to load an official OS through the Loader application, but to no avail. At first, I get the PIN: UNKNOWN and get to the application check screen. After that, it loads... But in the second step of Loader, it says it can't connect to the device. The Desktop Software hasn't been able to help too. Doing a battery pull leads to the bar filling to about 70%, and stays there. No reboot order, nothing. I hadn't the device before this episode, having no clue on what's the cause
ive looked through all the help pages on here and my usb lead works as its charging off the computer and i know all the connections work as used pen drives and external hard-drives in them ive also used different computers, uninstalled all the software and updated it but my device manager doesn't pick up the phone it a new phone and im getting really frustrated now as i want to upload my pictures on my pc?
I want to access public/ friends wifi but only methods are available here are 1 enter pin into wifi router 2 button on wifi method.why cant i connect to wifi network by using network password method? I am seriously sick of this. all other phones like android or even symbian support this. and is very easy. why it has to be painfully difficult here? I am an experienced and techie person. But yet can not figure out BB.
