I can't send a text because my "radio" is off. How do I turn it on? I can't figure it out..ugh!

theres an icon that looks like an antenna called connections. click it and turn your network back on........but remember that the blackberry will turn the radio off when the battery gets too low but the device will still be on, just without the ability to call or txt.
so make sure you have a decent charge, click on the icon and select the voice network to turn it on.

Blackberry Curve has a battery icon w/ red line through it

Try removing the battery for about 20 seconds and then put it back in and restart the phone. This is a form of a hard reset but it will not erase anything.

Blackberry pearl won't turn on

There are no special ways of turning on the Blackberry.

Simply power on - it is fully charged - if this doesn't work, remove the battery for a couple of seconds and re-try power on.

Dropped Blackberry 8100 in water now wont turn on...

Get some ipa [isopropanol] leave phone submerged in same for a few hours [with battery removed] then remove from ipa, leave for 24 - 48 hrs as long as you can and it should come back to life. All the components in your phone are waterproof so the ipa will eliminate the moisture and should make you happy again.

Blackberry Pearl

There should be an ICON on the menu to turn wireless on, Other wise under the manage connections icon, you must place a tick in the network box.

Also try pulling out the battery while the device is on. then put back in.
