How to delete a downloaded video


It really depends on what kind of cellular phone you are having a problem with, but I'll try to help you as much as possible by giving you the step-by-step process to deleting a downloaded video on a Blackberry Tour:
First, you'll need to know the name of the downloaded video file. When downloading a video onto your phone, there will usually be a screen where you can name the file yourself; or it will be automatically saved as another name which describes the video. Once you have the name of the video, it's easy to delete it.
Once you have the name of the video, you want to open the dashboard on your Blackberry by pushing the Blackberry button which looks like this: jfpat.png
The dashboard should pop up, and you'll want to find your "Media" Application. Scroll around your dashboard with your track pad or track ball (to the right of the Blackberry button) until you find the Media folder which looks like a file folder with a "play" symbol in the middle of it (like the play button on a TV remote control or DVD player). Once you've highlighted the Media folder, click on it.
Now you are in the Media folder, and there should be a bunch of icons that look like music symbols, telephones, pictures, microphones, video cameras, etc. What you are looking for, however, is the icon that looks like the film on a movie reel or an undeveloped piece of film from a (now old-fashioned, haha) disposable camera. Select this icon.
Now a list of the names of the videos on your phone will open up. Search for the name of the video you want to delete by scrolling up and down with your track ball or track pad. Once you've highlighted the video that you want to delete, push the Blackberry button again, and a little menu will open up on the side. Scroll down to highlight the word "Delete", click on that, and the video is deleted off of your Blackberry smartphone.
Hope I helped. Thanks. -jfp

how do i transfer stuff from blackberry curve into the memory card


Open your media manager. Push menu button and select "explore".

Navigate through your device memory until you find the file you want to transfer. Highlight the file, push the menu button and select "move".

Navigate back up the file tree by selecting "up" until you see the memory card folder. Select the memory card folder, and choose the option to "put file here".

Keep in mind, you can not load programs from your memory card. You can only put files there (music, documents, ebooks, etc).

Blackberry pearl 8100 won't turn on.


My Blackberry also wouldn't turn on, till a sharp tap at the top left of the screen made the screen flicker into life and I realised it was on, just no screen. After intermittent screen failing, repeated tapping seems to have fixed the problem. I'll upgrade to a new Blackberry when my contract allows.

blackberry pearl 8100 doesn't ring


Blackberries are famous for requiring the "take battery out and put back in" proceedure to reset things. Give it a try if you have not yet.

Hope that helps.. :)
