Try this method first

When your device fails to start, it show one of these symptoms:

1. Totally dead.

2. Trying to restart, LED activity only.

3. Failed to start, a white screen with an error message.

__________________________________________________ ________

1. Physical damage, water is the worst enemy of delicate electronic device. Try drying it with a desiccant and replacing the battery. If there is no activity, you can still try the last ditch technique, nothing to loose anyway.

2. Your device is not able to start, something has gone wrong and the OS is corrupt.

3. Geeks call this an "Uncaught exception error". That is a polite way of saying, the last thread has terminated, the OS has halted because it is corrupt.

In many cases, the Application Loader can be used from Desktop Manager or Windows.

__________________________________________________ ________

The good news, starting from scratch, you will be back in service in a couple of hours. email will not reset - biggrin.gif

Note: Windows 7 beta is not compatible with these instructions.

1. ...

2. You need to install a BlackBerry OS file that is specific to your device. The original version, as supplied by the carrier, is the safe choice, but you can use any model specific version.

3. Once the OS has been installed, you have to prepare it for the device.

Select Start / Computer and select the Drive C: Icon.

Open Program Files / Common Files / Research in Motion / AppLoader.

Navigate to the bottom and delete the file Vendor.XML file.

4. You are now ready to restore your device. Verify that BlackBerry Desktop Manager is NOT running. Plug the device directly into the computer's USB port.

We are about to venture into the bowls of the beast. Windows is not suitable for this job, we are going to invoke the Command line interface with an option switch. This was the way all 'computers worked prior to Mcintosh and Windows.

Windows XP: Start / Run... / Command

Windows Vista: Start / Command (type this into 'start search')

How to add skype onto phone


You need to go into the Google Play Store (on your phone) and search for Skype. Click "Install" and it will do it all for you. If you haven't gone into Google Play Store before you will need to create an account. You can use any Google account you already have - e.g. if you have a YouTube account, or gmail account, use that same account to log in. Otherwise just create a new account with the normal email address.

I no longer receive emails to my blackberry. i got an email telling ,e to re new my password.. im not sure what to do from here


ahev you registered the phone through the online site for your provider? it should be "service provider".blackberry.com (rogers.blackberry.com). If it's your first time to this site then you will need to setup your phone by creating a profile. You will need your ESN DEC, ESC HEX and/or your PIN number to do this. These are found on the side of the box for the phone, or under the battery if you want to turn your phone off. Once you have created an account or logged into your previously created account, find your email. It should be on the main page with a x or circle with a slash through it. Click edit, retype the password where required and click save changes. It should think for a bit and then popup saying everything sucessful. There should be a check mark next to your email when the setup is done correctly. Hope this helps.

How do I change an email account?


You will most likely need to wipe the device before setting up your email. This will remove all personal information on the device including mail, contacts, calendars, etc. To do this you should be able to go into the options (usually looks like a wrench) then scroll down and click on security. In the security screen clicking on one of the first options will pop up a menu where one of the options should be wipe handheld. Click on wipe handheld and follow the prompts. Once the device resets you should be able to configure it for your mail.

PHONE IS LOCKED


you need to factory reset your phone. this website shows you what to do without having to access anything on your phone - the first step is shutting it off. follow these steps and your phone will turn on, the only drawback is it will be like its new, and you'll have to re-download all the apps and stuff. it also has you sign up for gmail, and i suggest that you create a gmail address and write it down so it doesnt happen again :)
