BB Bold :: 9780 - Screen Name Contains Invalid Characters Or Text
Sep 2, 2011
I'm using blackberry bold 9780. I'm trying to register for a new BlackBerry ID but I can't. I tried to register through pc but this message appears.... "Username is an invalid email format. Please provide a valid email address to continue. Screen Name contains invalid characters or text." I need those app in blackberry world.
"Filename includes one or more invalid characters".....
Whenever I use the on-board photo editor on the Atrix, then try and save the file, I get the message "filename includes one or more invalid characters". There is no way to save the file. Even if you save as "photo" or "photo.jpg", nada.Not much on the Web about this.
My bold has this issues in which it only allows me to send 70 characters in a text, the rest is full of random spaces I can't see, and some people end up getting blank texts from me. Randomly, it could be someone on ATT or sprint whatever, what should I do besides send my phone in? Im thinking about doing that since its on warranty for another month, do you recommend another Bold.....or should I get a Curve 8900....or try out a non blackberry device, or see if they have a Bold 9700 in stock?
WIth the update to OS 6.0 (126.96.36.199.00) frmo Sprint, I now have the ability to go beyond the standard 160 characters for a text mesage. It appears that I have up to seven text messages worth of 160 chracters that can be composed and sent. This feature was working fine until last week. Here is what is happening. If I compose a text that is 180 chracters long, only the second part (the last 20 characters) comes thru. The message will say "2/2" and then display the final 20 characters. The first 160 characters never arrive. I have tested sending a message like this to a Sprint user, ATT user and T-mobile user. They all arrived in the same manner, only the last 20 characters.I have spoken to Sprint to no avail.
Ok complete BB Newb here so please bear with me. I have a new 9650, my gf has a new Incredible (both Verizon). When we're SMSing and I use the emoticons , they don't show up like they're supposed to on her Incredible - she just gets the jumbled text characters, no emoticons . Is this a setting on her end? We've tried everything. If she uses the Incredible's smiley's in tm's to me, they show up fine on the BB Bold . . .
I have a BB 9780 with 2 email (msn / hotmail) accounts set up. If i send an email it is duplicating the text in the same message.It is very frustrating. I have put all updates on in the hope it would have rectified. Is there anyone else experiencing the same problem
I have a BB bold 9780 and my text messages are being automatically deleted after a certain amount of time. I don't seem to have the option to set how long my device stores messages. i.e. options --> message display and action----> days to keep message
Been having general trouble with Blackberry 9780 lately, which upon re-booting I have now sorted. However, tonight have been sending and receiving texts and now a message has come up on all my texts saying this: Content Protection Is Enabled. How I might get rid of this message and get back to seeing my texts.
I recently went to press the unlock button on my blackberry and noticed that the screen had gone all white, it has no hourglass or error number on it, just a white screen which fades to and from black as i unlock/lock my phone.
I have a blackberry bold 9780, on o2.Last night i took it out of pouch to go and make a phone call and the screen went white, i locked the phone and then unlocked it a few times and it went and worked perfectly fine after that.After making my phone call i then put my phone back in the pouch and left it for an hour i went to use it again and it did the same white screen but it didnt go back to normal.. After looking on the internet i see it could be a software problem, so i plugged my phone into my computer and tried to update it... After a slight difficulty i did this and it did work for about 2 minutes...It then went white again after wiping the hand held and re loading the OS its still not working.
months ago my new BB 9780 showed a white screen up when i ended a phone call. my device working properly right now without any problem even it goes to lock mode and when i press the lock button it's goes on again. the main problem is that sceen is just white white and white. i have tried to disassemble the device for 2 times and screen works great for minustes each time i assembled it back, but the problem begins in a while and screen goes white again.
enclosed that there is no one who knows about fixing BB in my country! and as you see from my bad english i'm not living in a blackberry-supported country
So this problem started about 2 weeks ago. If I press in the bottom right corner of my screen and the end button, it will turn the whole thing white. But once I press the lock/unlock key, it locks and then I unlock it and its fine again. Its not a year old yet but I bought if off ebay so I'm not sure if its covered under warranty(though the listing said it said it was).
my bold 9780 keeps showing a white screen. i kept trying to reboot it but whenever the blackberry reboot screen came up it changed to a blank white screen and wouldnt move from there. i took it into a o2 shop & they said to update the software so i did that but still the white screen shows. although it doesnt show now when i am trying to reboot my phone it still shows it while im using my phone and i have to do a battery pull before it will leave the white screen. i can still recieve messages while the white screen is there but i cant see the screen to read them.
I received a call yesterday in the evening and the screen turned white. I tried removing the battery + pressed alt, right caps and del but still did not work. Also tried reloading the OS although it has the latest version of 188.8.131.524 using application loader yesterday. It did not work either. But today morning I went to carphone warehouse, they tried to tweak it but in vain. They suggested it was a hardware problem and had to be sent to bb support (which takes 28 days!!) It was still showing a blank screen. When i reached home, surprisingl y the cell phone was fine (dun ask how). I restored the data which i had saved on the laptop. After a few min tried calling up a friend, and the cell went blank again. I just pressed alt, right caps and del n it seemed to be fine again. Tried calling up and problem still persists.
Device info:Blackberry Bold 9780 on Orange UK - Software below.I just tried updating my BB to the latest OS, and after the update, I waited until it said "safe to remove", and then unplugged it. I waited 15 mins and it still didnt do anything, so I pulled the battery out but it didnt work.The screen is working, as I can still see the dead pixel that was there beforehand, however it just black, with the one dead pixel.I tried downgrading it after the the firmware below (I'm not sure what it was originally on) but that didnt work either.
Last week, I was just playing games on my blackberry, then that white screen appeared.I've changed the screen. But still there is a white screen. Just blank. My phone just appeared normally on Blackberry Desktop as usual. Then, I did the reset to factory, and wiped it. But now, my bb doesn't appear on Blackberry Desktop.
I have a BlackBerry Bold 9780. Whenever I try swtiching it on it just stays on white screen and at times few vertical lines but usually it's on white screen. All I can do is lock and unlock the device. I tried wiping off data and install new OS and updating the OS but no use. When I reinstall a new OS I hear some music. When ever I press the voice command button on left side I hear it telling 'say a command'.What is the problem and how to get my BlackBerry up and running ?
I have this huge black spot to the top right of my screen. I m sure I did not drop it or damage it anyway. I got a similar problem couple a months ago when a small spot appeared at the bottom left corner of the screen. But it went away on its own in 10-15 days.
I plugged by phone in to charge it and when I woke up the screen was white and had stripes on it. The phone can accept calls, but nothing else works. This phone is 14 months old and of course out of warranty now. Bell is telling me that it's going to cast $150.00 to have the phone repaired.
I have never dropped the phone, got it wet, or anything, this just occurred all by itself. A friend of mine also has a Bold and the same thing happened to her today. Could this be some sort of programming issues with RIM, or just extremely lousy phones they make?
A couple of days ago my phone started showing a blank white screen at non-specific intervals. The problem has become worse and I can't seem to view my screen properly. The phone itself is working fine (I am still receiving calls, texts and emails) but the screen won't show anything.I have repeatedly tried to reboot it by removing the battery but that hasn't fixed the issue.
Today, a white screen started appearing on my Blackberry. I've almost never dropped it (maybe twice in my life, with the cover on it), but it have been through rough cold temperature (-15 while snowboarding or skating), if this information can help. The screen first black out (it's kinda grey-ish with lots of vertical lines, mainly black, some whites and a few colored) then turns white with ONE pink vertical line. Really weird. I try to make it disappear by clicking on the lock buttons multiple times and on the shortcuts key, sometimes on the track pad, and the screen becomes perfectly normal sometimes. Except when I press the shortcuts key, there's a big rectangle (not full screen but almost) where the text is blurred... Sometimes it disappears, or black out again. I tried to restore a previous back up file: didn't work, tried to reboot it by removing the battery: failed.
