Hello, I was trying to set a password on my Blackberry 8520 when I locked iy phone it said cleaning history, then turned off. 3 Hours later it is still trying to turn on. I have taken the battery out...


Try to reset your blackberry password by entering wrong password 10 times, it will make your blackberry curve 8310 unlocked as well as your previous data will be erased. After your blackberry unlocked, you can setup new password for your phone.

Just stopped working, cannot charge, red light only


It could need a new battery. It doesn't sound like it's holding a charge anymore.

Blackberry 7290 device error:373 reset


Hi Anand

Practically speaking i spent 3 hours looking for your solution but nothing much even the BB intelectuals failed .Try these steps out it may resolve the issue and lets hope for the best .

This error : 373 : Device Error means that the Timers are corroupted

1. Remove the battery for at least 5 minute.
2. Make sure u have working SIM card, other wise remove the old SIM.
3.You should receive an Hour glass spinning. Give a few minutes, after that u will see a 507 message on the bb screen, (which means there is no app loaded on the bb)
4.If this dosent work
Use application loader to wipe handheld clean and reinstall base software but do backup your data

And please let me know .

Blackberry sandglass problem


Could you elaborate a bit more on what is happening. I can tell the your getting the hour glass but that is it. Is that all you get? Have you tried remvoing the battery?

Also have you tried to re image the phone? Go to provider website see if they have either an upgrade os or the same one and try reinstalling it. Backup your contacts though

How to unlock black berry 7290


The first thing you can try is to wipe the applications and operating system from the device. This will result in lost information, but at this point you won't be able to get any data from it anyway because it isn't turning on. You can follow the steps in the links below. This requires you to wipe the applications, then release the operating system back on to the device:

If that first link doesn't work, try this one:

Once you get that wiped then you can upgrade the operating system on the device:

Blackberry will not turn on, I just get a red light


this happened with my first blackberry and it never turned back on guess what softwar glitch it was never goig to work again so i got a new one the second one started having issues within a month and eventually got to the point where i couldnt wifi it would turn off on me for no reason tell me i had no service when i should have hang up on people freeze and simply sucked took it in to get it fixed guess what another software glitch that one went to blackberry heaven and i got another one this one is only 1 month old has all updated software and hey guess what no issues at all i suppose every phone has bugs in it to begin with look the aple iphone blew up when it first came out until they fixed the issues with it.

if your on a plan ur under warranty with blackberry take it back and there policy basically replaces the phone.

good luck
