Apr 9, 2012
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...
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 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.
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?
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?
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?
My blackberry is not switching on after i let the battery go completly flat. The Pc is not responding to it either when I plug it in. I´ve only hyad the phone a couple of months. Is it a common problem or should I return the phone?
My battery died on Saturday and I didn't have a charger with me. So, I switched off my phone so just to cool it off. When I got home I put it on charger. And it showed it was charging. But when it rebooted it didn't completely switched on. I took off my battery for about 30minutes and rebooted again, but still it would not switch on. And it still does that today. My phone is ten months old.
Is there a way to really reset the BB to the factory settings?I am running 5.0x firmware, and the Options/ Security Options/ General Settings/ Menu/ Wipe Handheld function is not present anymore! (I saw it when I had 4.6.x..)So I tried this (from Mac, as on XP I can't locate the loader.exe file): http://www.blackberry.com /btsc/ search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=KB18998 but it actually did not really clean my BB, it kept for example all the apps I installed which are the reason why I would like to reset the BB! it also kept the 5.0.x firmware, while when I got the BB it had the 4.6.x firmware. I really would like to go back to the original status. any suggestions?
Is it possible to do like a factory reset on my curve. Since I gave my girlfriend my former phone my contact list is still in there and its freaking me out. I tried to delete but I could only achieve deleting one contact at a time and I have close to 800 contacts.
I am trying to swotch from my old BB 7290 to a new Curve 8520 using Desktop Manager v. 6 but it always comes up the error "A fatal error occurred while updating the device software. Please try again". My old and new devices are connected with an Enterprise Server (the company server syncronizes the office mails with Microsoft outlook). what I would need to do to pass all my mails stored in my old 7290 to my new 8520? These mails are not present in the Microsoft Outlook of my PC as I stored them in the BB 7290 only.
