How do I reset my forgotten blackberry ID on my blackberry 9900 because when I click on forgot password? it says Unable to update BlackBerry ID account information while offline. please help me as I can...

I don't know whether this will work or not, but is there a Blackberry website, or your service provider's website where you try to log into your account. If so you could try for access from a computer rather than your Blackberry and update your account from there.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

    If you recently updated the phone, you may have removed your unlock. Updated the phone software also updates the baseband. If you updated your baseband to the most current version, you may not be able to use the phone until a new hack is released.

    Operation faild

    Tha'ts a common error I always face whenever I will download a free or trial mobile software. 

    Probable Reasons:

    1. It's not compatible with your phone (either: screen size, file size, number of colors, advanced

    programming codes that may not suit you phone at the moment)

    2. It's corrupted it can't run/ start up (reasons: unfinished program)

    3. Maybe it's a Virus. (Mostly phone companies as I haved observed tightly secures thir program so that

    no one can modify it, it might be an attack to destroy the phone's software. In effect to us we can say

    their great!

    Sir i want to new version install my phone

    Take your handset to the nearest service centre of Sony Ericsson. They will upgrade your handset's software.

    Do not try it yourself as if the updation is not completed fully or being stopped in between the process then your handset will completely die.
