i'm having problems updating my device i've tried using the desktop mangager way but half way through it pops up with an error message saying ' an error has occured while downloading software for your device, please verify your internet connection or try again later, if this problem persisits' i've tried about 10 times now over a three day period and the same things happens everytime.
i'm currently runnung with 126.96.36.1998 but can update to the 5.0 version. i've also tried updating wirelessly but when i check for updates it pops up and says 'unable to send request for available updates'.
I have a new BlackBerry Storm 9530, running software release 5. The voice dialing is not working well at all. It seems to only recognize my Contact entries if I say them last name first. Besides the fact that I don't naturally think to talk this way, it's not always obvious how to say contacts that are not normal names, such as the name of a business.
The voice dialing on my old Storm (which I had to replace for other problems) allowed me to speak FN, LN, and recognized most names accurately, so I feel there must be some setting that I need to make.
I'm looking to remove voice dialing from my storm but can't find a device software download that works. When I tried to get it from verizon's site it would not let me download the mr3 update to my computer.
I'm in a catch 22 situation here. My storm will not allow me to set up emails via the setup menu as it is saying my device not registered. It then gives me the options to go thro in order to register.easy so far.I follow the instructions and go to the host routing table, and click on the register option..also easy so far.By the time I've come out of the menu, I have received a message from blackberry saying my blackberry has been registered to a wireless network. Excellent.When I got back to the setup email options, it is telling me that my device is not registered.
Recently, my phone kept turning itself off, and on. At first. it would turn its self off and then turn itself on and the battery would be flat. But if i had credit on it, it would use my credit up?Then after a few times it came up with uncaught exception error 4 or 5, the number would change.But the other day it switched off and 2 days later it has not switched back on, i have it on charge and has been on charge since it happened.
I bought a Verizon Blackberry storm 9530, but without the sim card. I was wondering if anyone can help me unlock this phone so i can used it with my t-mobile. I own a t-mobile phone that has a sim card.
I keep getting a message "service not enabled for this device" when I try to log in to my IMs. I have the data plan on my phone and when i went to talk to my service provider they said everything was connected on there side.
When I start the Desktop Manager and connect my phone everything works fine. I then try to launch Media Manager and the Device connected (PIN) : Blackberry 9550 (310C647) goes grey and the software says " There is no device connected. Please connect your device in order to view its contents."
2 days back I purchased storm 2 9520.When ever I try to connect my device to internet with wifi it is showing unable to get IP address.I am unable to understand what to do with my device.Please help as I am new bee to blackberry family.And more over this is my first expensive devise.
I don't want all of my emails to go to the BlackBerry. I'd like to keep them comming to my desktop except for those rare occasions that I'm away from the desktop and want them to go to both the BB and the desktop. I know I can turn off my wireless connection, but doesn't that also turn my phone capabilities off also?
So I purchased a 1.5TB drive and set out to rip all my CD that I have been collecting since the 80's. I decided to put some of these CD's on my Storm. I opened the handy dandy DM and clicked on the media sync, but I would be damned if I could not figure any way to import specific albums. I can sync all (I have way too much to do that) or recently changed. But how the hizzy do I import only specific albums? Do I simply open the music sync folder on the memory card on my computer desktop and drag them over? If this is the case, why is the BB music sync program so lame?
When I plug into my laptop it doesn't find the device memory in windows. Also, when I plug into media sync it doesn't find my blackberry. Desktop manager always find my blackberry and window always finds my media card. Does anyone know what to do about this?
Just a few hours ago I picked up my phone and realized the time was behind by 21 minutes..I have been trying to go in and manually change the time but I guess you aren't allowed. I tried changing time zones and going back, rebooting and searching can't seem to find a solution. When I go into options, date/time..under device time the time is wrong but the actual network time displays as the right time.
This never used to happen, but just started in maybe the past couple of weeks:-when I use gmail to send an email, the sent email it now appears on my device as a sent message(with a check mark).I like this because everynow and then I send myself an email as a reminder of something, except that those dont go through as "unread" to the device, just as "sent".Is there a way to turn off automatic retrieving of "sent mail", and turn on retrieving messages I send to myself as unread received mail?
I've been trying to put music on a stom for a while now and everytime I connect to computer it wont recognize my device. Mass storage mode is on. I have 5.0 os on it. It didnt work before I update the OS. So I have no clue what the problem is.
I am no longer using my Storm (or any other BB) but I may go back to it or to a new BB later, so I don't want to delete DM but I would like to set it so that it does not start up when my computer boots. I was able to achieve this on another laptop with Vista, but i cannot find a way on XP.
I recently went on a trip and took over 200 photos on my Blackberry. I need a simple way to transfer all of them to my computer, since obviously emailing them one at a time or moving them one at a time is not practical.When I go to Options > Memory, all options are set to On (Media Card Support, Media Transfer Protocol, and Mass Storage Mode Support).When I go to Media > Pictures > All Pictures, I see all my photos. When I go to Picture Folders, it says Device Memory.
While connected to my PC via USB, I try to pull it up in Windows Explorer. I see options for MTP Device - Device Memory and MTP Device - Media Card. There are only empty folders under Device Memory. Media Card has nothing under Data, and only my music files under Media. Similar behavior when I pull it up under Windows Media Player.
Ever since I've upgrade to the 5.0.x software, even though my spell check and autocomplete are turned off, the software is still correcting my words. If I type: The program sam is made in The software corrects it automatically to: The program Sam is made in Erasing the word and typing again will not work as it will be capitalized. What works is pausing after writing the word sam and then chosing from the popup that allows a choice of sam or Sam.This was not the case in 4.7 . If it is of any importance, I use multitap.
Just upgraded the OS on the storm I just got to 188.8.131.528. I noticed that now when I SMS, bbm, or even typing here it is giving like a predictive text list, I don't like this can it be turned off. I have auto correct turned off and also auto text turned off, but yet it still shows up.
Please help me solve this problem:i recently upgraded my OS to .797 and ever since my mobile network won't turn ON. i've downgraded, upgraded, wiped, resetted it policy, called vzw, looked everywhere online for a solution but still unable to find one. The radio just won't turn on at all, i don't know what to do anymore, please help.one more question, is it possible to unlock torch to be used on vzw?
Yesterday i dropped my storm and it shut off completely, no cracks on the screen nothing. I did a battery pull repeatedly and charged it over night, at first the red light would blink whenever i hit the power button and now its completely unresponsive, no red light at all. Will not even show its charging, my computer will not detect it.
