BB Curve 8900 :: Device Locking On It

Jun 6, 2010

My Curve 8900 has started to lock on it's own. Sometimes it happens when I'm typing an email or text, sometimes it happens when I'm waiting for a browser page to upload. Initially I thought it might be a particular keystroke I was hitting but it has happened when I'm simply holding the device and not typing at all. Has anyone had this problem or does anyone know how to fix it?

BB Curve 8900 :: SMS Locking Up

Mar 19, 2010

I've just recently starting having this issue with my SMS where a particular thread of SMS's gets "locked" up. That is, I'll get a message, but I can't open it. Doesn't matter if I try opening it using the enter key, the trackball, or by using menu then open. The only way I open them is by having to do a battery pull. Has anyone else had this issue?

BB Curve :: Locking And Unlocking 8900?

Apr 11, 2011

Each time I press the lock button or I hold the A key, the display automatically turns off and the phone is locked. I cannot check the time on the phone or see if I have any new messages without unlocking it, checking, then relocking it again.

This may seem really miniscule but on my old hanset when the phone was locked if you pressed and of the buttons on the keypad the screen would light up, not unlock, and i could check the time or whatever.

Jan 21, 2010

My home broadband is down. My box is broke.I know I can use my BB as a modem to use the internet on my laptop.All very easy to set up via the pc software...My question is, would my network (02UKy know I'm doing so? I rang them to ask and they told me t'd cost me a bomb. But is that just because they had the chance to throw a charge at me?Would they know by the type or amount of data being used or by any other way?I have a BB Bolt on (unlimited BB usage) on my contract!

BB Curve 8900 :: Can Synchronize Device With Outlook - Without BES

Apr 9, 2010

8900 Curve (EDGE, Wi-Fi)
Carrier - Rogers
v. (Platform

My outlook email account is on my device. In other words, emails to my outlook emails address goes to both my outlook and my device.

Is it possible, if I respond to an outlook email on my blackberry for that sent response from my blackberry to be in my sent folder in my outlook. In other words, can I synchronize my device with outlook so that any responses sent on my device regarding outlook emails get reflected in my outlook. I believe you need to have BES - but I don't have that. My device is a personal one - not a corporate one without any connection to a corporate server. Is it possible without BES to do the synchronization?

BB Curve 8900 :: Polaroid / Fauxlaroid Application For Device?

Mar 12, 2010

Hi, I have been searching the internet for quite some time now and I begin to assume that there is no application for BlackBerry which turns your photos into polaroid styled pictures, is this true?

So basically I'm looking for an application which gives a polaroid/vintage touch to the pictures in order to use them online (I was unable to provide picture examples since I haven't got 10 posts).

Feb 15, 2010

The phone charges, boots up, Pin is recognized by DM.However, when i turn the phone on, the screen lights up and it prompts me to enter the device password.

When upgrading yesterday the process never finished. After 3 hours the status bar was still in the same place in the reboot phase. It seemed as if the entire computer was frozen. I couldn't do anything on it. I had to reboot the computer.Now when the phone comes on it freezes at the ATT screen. I am sure it is because the process didn't complete. How do I complete the process?

BB Curve 8900 :: Device Memory Not Appearing - How To Get Back

Feb 3, 2010

I'm trying to access my device memory through mass storage. But when i connect with Mass storage, i can only access the SD-card. This also happens when i go to options -> memory - There i can only see application memory, and media card, but no device memory, like in other phones.

Checking programatically for file:///store/home/user, shows it exists, and i'm able to save files to it. So - How do i get back my device memory ? Any one else experiencing these problems?

BB Curve 8900 :: Outlook - Device Default Server Disappeared

Apr 16, 2010

BB 8900 (replacement just delivered...and the problem below started)
Device OS
Device Manager
Default Services: <my primary email> (I also have a second BIS email attached, but the CICAL for that one has been deleted.)

After struggling for days to get rid of the Device Default calendar (in addition to the calendar associated with my primary email and which is set as default under Default Services), I finally got my whole BB calendar on to the one calendar it should be on: the one associated with my primary email. And lo and behold, the Device Default disappeared. hallelujah, I thought.

Having cleared out the calendar using Device Manager, I then opted for a one way sync from Outlook to my new BB with its one and only calendar now, the calendar associated with my primary email and listed as the default under Default Services.....

Mar 27, 2010

i installed the blackberry desktop software from the website . when i tried to initialize it for the first time i got a prompt which asked me to input the device password

so i'm entering that very same password but its giving me an incorrect pwd notification.

is there some other pwd that i'm supposed to configure on this ?

BB Curve 8900 :: No Email Setup Wizard On 2nd Hand Device?

May 19, 2010

I bought a 2nd hand 8900 but it doesn't have the wizard to set ip my email I've looked in all options and menus but there is nothing for email. I set up blackberry in my company and I wonder if this device is set to enterprise activation instead of other activations. I called my carrier o2 but the weren't helpful and said it was because I was on the wrong tariff and didn't have an o2 email address. I've wiped the device could updating the software out this back? It doesn't show a carrier when I start it up I think it was originally purchased as a sim free device. Any thoughts?

BB Bold 9700 :: Device Not Locking On 3G But Storm 2 Did

Jun 9, 2010

I was travelling with a friend who is using Storm 2. We were comparing our devices and founf that at certain area the Storm 2 signal is on 3G with the bb logo but my Bold 9700 signal shows EDGE. But when I change the option at Mobile Network to 3G only, my Bold 9700 is able to lock the signal to 3G, however when I change back Mobile Network to 3G & 2G it goes back o EDGE (not immediately though).

I am currently running OS .680.... Is there a fix to the problem above or it is a known Bold 9700 issue or a known .680 issue. I have not try this with previous OS so not sure if it will acted differently.Any opinion. Am considering downgrading the OS but will wait for feedback first.

Galaxy S5 :: How To Get Device To Stop Locking After A Call

Oct 8, 2014

I have an S5 for my work device. It is locked into the corporate policies setup by my IT department.

My first issue is - as part of policy, I must have a strong password and my phone auto locks after 30 minutes. When I make calls, even 3 second phone calls, the phone will lock after I hang up.

My second issue is kind of linked to the first - when my phone is connected to my Sony Car Stereo, it disables the keyboard so I cannot type (obviously a safety feature), which is fine because I do not drive and text/email etc. except that after I take a call, I cannot unlock my phone to allow me to make another call.

Nokia :: N79 Locking Phone Or Letting Back Light Shut Off - Device Won't Turn On

May 29, 2010

I purchased my N97 about a year ago and I absolutely adore it. I haven't run into any problems until last week. When I turn on my phone, enter the unlock code and use it to do whatever I need to do, it works fine. However, if I lock the phone or let the backlight shut off, it won't turn back on and neither do the lights on the number keys. Here is the funny part: If I press the power key (as if I were to change my profile) the backlight turns on, allowing me to see the screen, but the number keys don't light up! Does anyone know what I can do?

I'm not very tech savvy (so please don't laugh if my solutions are completely wrong), but here are some of the things I have done to try and rectify the problem:
- Let the battery drain completely and charged it in the hopes that it would rectify itself like it has in the past with other issues
- Took out the battery, SIM card and memory card just to make sure everything was inserted properly
- Restored the phone to factory settings
