My Blackberry Pearl 9100 sometimes encounters a problem when try to connect internet over WiFi. The Data services was switched on and APN settings were unchecked. It shows the complete signal strength of my WiFi signal but unable to browse. It hits an error message 'Unable to fconnect to the server'.
The google talk app works when BIS was connected. But, over WiFI it doesnt work.
I am new to the forum and have just bought my very first Blackberry, its the 8120 pearl on the Orange uk network. I've had the phone for a week now and just cant get on the internet, when i try to access, say Yahoo, this message come up "This is a Wi-Fi service. Please ensure your device has an active Wi-Fi connection and try again". My question is is this phone Wi-Fi only or can i connect thru the old way like i used to do on the Nokia's?
I am using a Blackberry Bold 9780 for 10 months now, offlate having a difficulty connecting to the internet using Wifi connectivitty. I have not updated any software ever. The device shows it is connected to the Wifi router but when I try to open any websites, returns a blank page.
I have a BB Torch 9860 which connects to my home Wifi fine but does not connect to the internet for some reason. I cannot access the net and get my emails or use a 3rd party browser like opera nor can i do anything. This is a major concern for me as it doesn't matter when i am home but it's amjor concern when i travel abroad.
I just updated my N8 from symbian anna to belle. Everything went ok. Now I'm trying to connect to my home wifi network which has WEB security. I can connect without a problem. I mean the phone says it's connected to the network. But when I try to access a website there is only the error page. And after a minute or so the wifi connection drops out by itself. I saved the network, and there's no other destination in the settings/destinations menu. the phone is not connecting to it by itself. Is there a way to go back to Anna?
my phone shows the wifi network but it is unable to connect to the internet...i tried reseting my network, restarting my phone,changing the time and date and every possible ways to fix it up but it does not work...my brother has the same set as mine and the same wifi network is working fine on his mobile.
I recently deactivated my Blackberry Bold 9000 (v22.214.171.1244 operating system) from AT&T since I ported my cell phone number to US Cellular who had better coverage in my region. I'd like to continue using my Blackberry Bold 9000 as a free wi-fi only internet access device and install the Google Voice app so my kids could text message and make phone calls via the Google Voice app and phone's wi-fi connection. While my BB Bold is able to connect to our home wi-fi network like in the past it doesn't successfully connect to the internet and gives me the following message: "Unable to connect to the internet, please try again later."
Really loving this phone (8520) and a massive leap from my last phone.
Having trouble with connecting to my or my works wifi. It registers both routers and displays the name across at the top of the phone and in wifi settings I have a black square with a white dash line and a green wifi symbol.
I have a Asda pay as you go sim which is fine for the calls text etc but I hearing not so good for the Internet.
I have managed to get the browser going with the Hotspot setting but I'm guessing this isn't using my home wifi as it as slow as a snail and keeps cutting out.
Without Hotspot enabled it tries to use VodaphoneLive and I get the message "unable to connect to the Internet, please try again later. If the problem persists please contact your service provider"
Less than a couple months ago, I got a new Pearl 9100. Two days ago I had to take the battery out and after I put the battery back on, the phone started to reset itself. It goes from the red light on the upper right corner to the Blackberry start screen with the white line where you can guess how much of the OS has loaded (percentage bar?)It loads about 1 - 2% of the bar and then it resets itself. I have tried to reload the OS according to the instructions providen on this site, but it is not possible, since the phone does not stay on long enough for the upgrade.
My Pearl 9100 will not, and has not since I have owned it, retrieve MMS. I get a notification that someone has sent me a message, my phone displays the message and says ***Not Retrieved Yet*** with a button underneath saying "Download Now" and "Expires mm/dd/yy/time". But after I click "Download Now", my phone does absolutely nothing. I have no idea what to do or where to start to even try to remedy this situation. My carrier is Bell Canada.
I recently downloaded BBM updated version and rebooted the phone, which rendered the phone completely useless. It does not boot up, just gets stuck at the Blackberry first loading page with the status bar showing 100%.
I've had this phone a while now but I just can't get even simplest taks, installing a new theme, working!!
At the Desktop Manager > Application Loader, I browse to the theme but the only highlighted files are the ALX extensions... all the other COD and JAD files are not selectable! Choosing the ALX file still doesn't give me the theme!!
My wife's Pearl 9100 has been having a lot of trouble backing up over BB Protect software, lately. It used to work perfectly fine before, but now it seems to start the backup and then it aborts after about 90% completion. Also the backup is extremely slow. The Pearl is connected through my home Wi-Fi router and we have 25 Mbps broadband connection, so there should be no speed issues at all, I would think.
my phone was in my pocket and I assume I pressed a combination of keys. The vertical scroll on my track pad does not work on the main screen or in these screen that gets me to applications and options etc. unless I hold down the ALT button. Now this is extremely annoying especially when trying to move fast through messages and options.
Is there are key combo or a setting I can use to remove this? I do not want to have to press the alt screen to move up and down!
The "facebook" calendar entries on my Pearl won't download to Outlook since I downloaded the latest upgrade. I didn't know Facebook had a calendar. I have now deleted Facebook App - still won't download. I have searched to find the 77 entries on my phone but can't locate them to transfer to Outlook on my desktop.
Pearl 9100 3G v126.96.36.1991, Platform 188.8.131.52 Recently upgraded to OS 6. however, when I had OS 5, when entered my password to unlock my BB, I can press and hold down my aA^/# key (to the right of the space/0 key, and to the left of the return key) and my BB would go into vibrate sound profile. If it was already on vibrate profile, by holding that key, I would go to normal sound profile. Now, when I hold that key down, it ask me "Assign a Speed Dial to the #?"
What must I do to get my Blackberry Pearl 9100 to ring more than one time. If I'm not right next to it, I miss calls since it only rings once. Where do I find the option to set the number of times the phone rings?
My Pearl 8120 is becoming unusable due to its faulty roller ball. I want to replace it with a Pearl 9100. My current carrier is T-Mobile and I'd like to keep it because three other lines are on this account with mine.I believe I can get a code from RIM to unblock the SIM, is that right?T-Mobile does not have the BlackBerry 6.0 OS.Assuming I can unblock my SIM, will the phone run on T-Mobile's system or will I have to change carriers?
I have one unlocked Pearl 3G 9100 phone. I use this phone using Pre paid card. I want to switch the SIM cards from different carriers. Currently it has OS v184.108.40.2068 (Bundle 1262, platform 220.127.116.11).
How can I update the OS on this phone at present and in the future without getting it from any carrier? If I download it from one carrier and install it, does the phone works with other carrier SIM card?
Before I take this phone back to the store I want to find out if this maybe the way that RIM is actually making this phone now.When I get a new email or text etc., the led light flashes red like all the blackberries do but it only goes for a short time then stops. It starts again when there is more emails but again stops.
I looked in the settings and cant find what I would adjust for this. Either the phone is defective or this is the way the phone is.Any help would be appreciated as I will need to take it back within the next day or two.
