BB Tour 9630 :: Symbol 5 Plus Signs During Phone Calls?
Aug 20, 2010
When I make a phone call a weird symbol comes up in the right hand corner of my tour. It's black with 5 plus signs going diagonally (right to left). Anyone know what this means? I've been searching all day and can't figure it out
I'm travelling overseas soon and will have the $40 Sprint add-on data package. I don't want to receive phone calls - especially from people who don't know that I'm out of town.What is the best way of making all of these calls go to voicemail automatically?
ive had two people tell me that they were hearing an echo/repeat of what they were saying on their end of the phone, and i heard it once on my end. Not sure whats going on here, but what can i do to resolve this issue. I need a phone that is reliable and not causing people to hang up/get frustrated because its echoing on them and making it hard for them to understand me.
I just upgraded to a 9630 from a 8330m on the Sprint network, and I really want the 3G symbol.Could anyone point me to some free themes that you guys use that have this? The only one I found was this one: Now everyone can have the must have 3G icon with my new 3G for all theme. (beta 0.10)
As of recently, my tour had turned off one day. The screen said technical support required, bring to your provider, or something to that effect. Anyway, the phone was fixed, everything wiped however. Ever since then, a new strange Grey symbol is at the top of my screen, and I have no idea what is means. It is on my home screen, directly between the time and battery life symbols, so basically it is to the left. It looks like a symbol of a mini blackberry with a tiny little pinkish square sticking out of the side of the left side of the phone symbol.
I have a bb tour and I recently noticed an icon on the top of my home screen and I don't know what it is for. It has the phone like you would see with a missed call but instead of the red x it is either a 4 or an arrow right beside the phone. What does it mean?
I have my sound on "Loud (Active)" as I always do and then all of the sudden it stops making any sounds or chimes when I receive calls, emails, texts or facebook notifications.My calls and ect.are still coming thru, but just completely silent.I have to look at my screen to see I have a call coming thru and wait for the little red light at the top to see if I have any text messages and whatnot.Does anyone know why this could be happening?Now during the workday I will probably end up missing important phone calls and playing phone tag with people.Any help would be appreciated
I have a customer with a Tour 9630 on Verizon Wireless. Anytime he enables the geotagging under the camera options it doesn't work. Location on setting is enabled. The camera always shows a gps symbol with a red X.
When I have BB Maps open, and have begun GPS navigation, the "dashboard" has several items of information. Left side of dahs has mph. The center of dash has some sort of symbol and a number. What does the symbol and number represent?
I downloaded berrybuzz about a month ago and everything has been working great untill two days ago. Now the LED doesn't light up at all.I have tried battery pulls and that doesn't work. Any ideas. My next thing is to delete the app and redownload it.If someone else has an other idea that would be great.
I've entered a pre-paid SIM card and can't read the phone book on my TOUR, i dont even have the option to retract them from the card to the phone when i go to the menu. Although I can make and receive calls with no problem.Did u guys have to do something special prior to entering the card?
I have noticed my phone has been freezing a few times the past week or two and didn't think much of it until some friends with the tour complained about the exact same thing (Phone freezing randomly but just within the past week or two). Has anyone else noticed this?
For today I have not had a signal at all in my house. I have never had a problem before with my Tour but today has been the worst. I cannot receive or make calls, send or receive emails or text messages. I have reset everything and even did the *228 thing but nothing. I have to drive around the block to make a phone call. Any advice for me besides throwing it out the window?
Im going to South Africa on the 29th and I was wondering if there was anyway to get cheap calls back to the US? I set up the Verizon international data plan so I was wondering if Skype or Google Voice are options? I just dont feel like paying $3/minute
I can send and received messages but can not send or receive phone calls. i notice at the top right hand corner of the screen there is something that looks like a golf tee and next to it is the word OFF I have not been able to use the phone for a couple of days because i lost the charger - i have new charger and the phone is now fully charged.
I've owned my phone for 8 months and I'm having ISSUES. This thing has been babied all over the place, so I want an expert opinion on what others think might be the problem...and if I should get a replacement phone.
I've had trackball issues with the phone since Day 1, but they weren't so miserable that I couldn't live with it, so I kept the phone. The phone has been pretty great: beautiful screen, fast, etc. etc.For the past month, I've had issue with:
1. Signal - Drops ALL THE TIME now
2. Dropped calls - Often
3. Browser "can't render page" messages when trying to surf the web
4. Hourglass of death
5. White screen
6. Screen freeze
7. Delayed delivery of push email
8. Trackball goes left, when I try to push it right, and vice versa (I even cleaned it)
I called Sprint and after much back/forth, they suggested I get the trackball replaced. I reminded them that won't solve all the other problems, so now they'll send me a replacement ("refurbished") phone instead.Does my phone need replacing or is there something else I can do to fix the above problems?And please don't say "hard reset" - not only has it already been done, but what phone requires so many hard resets in less than a year?
For the last 2 weeks, I've been receiving a call from a "private number." The calls come at either 10 or 11 AM and also at 2 or 3 PM like its happening on the hour. They are disconnected from the other end after 3 seconds...there is no one on the line, nothing computerized, no static, nothing. Anyone else having these issues? I have the latest VZW software fwiw.
I'm new to the community. A little info about me My name is Steve, I am a Sprint ASC Technician in Indiana. I currently carry a Tour.I've worked on countless BlackBerrys, processed many repairs and exchanges, and have studied these phones from their hardware to their software. However, I have come across a problem that I cannot repair. Let me explain. BlackBerry Tour on Sprint. The device will not power on. I have done the standard protocol on devices that will not power up-- replaced battery, tried to connect to Desktop Manager, try connecting to JL Commander-- none of which had any effect. The owner of the phone has accepted that I will have to order him another one, but has propositioned me outside of work and offered me a handsome reward if I can get the contacts and texts messages off of the old one somehow. I told him how unlikely the possibility is, but with the amount of money he is willing to pay me for it, I am going to try.My question to you gurus out there: What can I do to accomplish such a task? I took his motherboard out and put it in different Tour's housing, hoping it was just some insignificant cable problem from the original housing, but sadly it still did not power on. The device has only been used for about 3 months, and the motherboard has no signs of abuse of any kind. Does anyone have any ideas, crazy or not, how to get this motherboard to power on so I recover his contacts and/or text messages? He bought me a soldering kit and told me if there's ANYTHING else I need to get the job done, let him know no matter the cost.
My partner and I want to upgrade our phones to a new PDA. I have the Tour and I love it. His only concern is that, in our business we will need to use Handheld Contact to integrate with a program called ACT! and we are not sure that the tour will hold all of our contacts? How many contacts will the tour hold including email addresses any everything? We have over 3000 contacts in our ACT! database.
So, from my last 2 topics, I've finally received my replacement Blackberry (Bold 9650). This is probably a dumb question but here it goes, everything I had on my Tour isn't on the battery right? My replacement doesn't have a battery so I have to use the battery from my Tour. When I use the Tour battery on my Bold, it'll just act as a battery and just give life to the Bold right?
Another question, what's the original os on the Bold? Is there a new update or one coming up? I got my replacement because of the update that I did on my dm and now I'm afraid to update it from dm. Should I not do updates over ota?
alright so im running .230 forever now and lately its been giving me problems,the phone freezes sometimes, slow other times.what bothers me the most is that I can Record videos, but when i try to play them back it comes back with an error and then i cant even play them back on my computer.so what OS should i run? i know .591 is crap.. so help me out here guys, i need my phone to be reliable again
Every time I put my phone on the table it restarts. It only really occurs when the phone lands on the table. Other than that it doesn't but every time I put the phone on the table or something its restarts and its becoming a little annoying. I have tried numerous battery pulls and nothing. Should I just bring it into Verizon to let them look at it and if something is wrong will they give me a new phone.
Sorry I meant to put SD* card not SC. I had a bb tour 9630 that I broke. I got my new one and took my memory card out of the broken phone and put it in my new one. Does not work. Says it wont format. Everything is turned on like is supposed to be. What can I do? Kind of would like to be able to get my files off my card and use it on my new phone.
