Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl Smartphone

Open Question

"Service not enabled for this handheld."

Every time I try to sign into my AOL Instant Messenger, I always get a message saying, "Service not enabled for this handheld." I'm figuring it might be the service of mine... But, any thoughts?

    I've been having the same problem. I haven't yet had time to test this possible solution, but thought I'd throw it your way and see if you wanted to try it. There's a forum about all this on pinstack that offers the required service books for download. Afterwords, you'll need to resend your own. I'm sure the folks at PinStack would be glad to help you if needed. Good luck!

Picture Message


you need to call your service provider (mine is TMobile) and tell them to turn on Black Berry Feature Enabler (This allows customers with certain Blackberry devices who are not signed up for BlackBerry service to enjoy phone features such as Picture Messaging, Instant Messaging and t-zones.) this is directly from their site, and this service is 100% free

Picture Messaging


If your sympton is:

You see a red X with unknown error on your BlackBerry smartphone when sending picture attachments in an email message.
The service books for the email integration are corrupt
To resolve this issue, delete and resend the service books from the BlackBerry® Internet Service or BlackBerry® Enterprise Server.

or

Picture messaging allows the user to send and receive photos to and from their contacts.
Important: The Instant Messenger recipient must be online to send the picture.
To send pictures from your BlackBerry smartphone camera using <Instant Messenger>, complete the following steps:
  1. On the BlackBerry smartphone, preview a picture.
  2. Display the menu and select the Instant Messenger you want to use to send the picture.
  3. Complete the onscreen instructions.
To send a picture from within an Instant Messenger for BlackBerry smartphones application session, complete the following steps:
  1. Within the Instant Messenger session, display the menu and select Send Media. The Which Type dialog appears.
  2. Click Picture. The Pictures folder opens.
  3. Select the picture you want to send. A request is sent to the recipient indicating you sent a file and an option to Accept or Decline the file.
    • If the recipient clicks Accept, the Save File dialog opens. The recipient saves the file on the BlackBerry smartphone.
    • If the recipient clicks Decline, The sender receives a message indication the file transfer was declined.
or

The BlackBerry smartphone user is unable to send a picture as an email message from the Media application of the BlackBerry smartphone. The Send option is not present on the menu when the email message is sent using an email account that is associated with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

Although the current BlackBerry Internet Service supports large attachments or attachments that are in their native format, BlackBerry Enterprise Server software version 4.0 does not.
A BlackBerry smartphone that is provisioned with the current BlackBerry Internet Service uses it as the default method for sending pictures from the camera. As a result, when attempting to send a picture attachment from an email account that is associated with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, the Send option will be missing from the menu as the image is in native format and size.

Upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to software version 4.1 Service Pack 2 or later, since support for large attachments or attachments that are in their native format has been introduced in that version.

Follow the steps below to send the picture attachment from the Messages application on the BlackBerry smartphone:
  1. Select Messages on the Home screen of the BlackBerry smartphone.
  2. Press the Menu key.
  3. Select the Compose Email option from the menu.
  4. In the To field, enter the contact address where the email message is to be sent.
  5. Press the Menu key again.
  6. Select the Attach File option from the menu.
  7. Browse to and select the picture to be attached to the email message.
  8. Send the email message.

Unfortunately the message file got corrupted. You need to hard format the phone but of course you need to back up every important file on the phone memory cuz it will restore yur phone to factory defaults.

Make sure you have a full battery. Remove the memory card and sim as well. Turn off the unit. Hold down asterisk (*) sign, the number 3, and the green call button at the same time then power it on. The screen will flash and you will see a progress bar. It will format itself automatically.

Hope this helps.

Recieving and sending E-mail


The Dell Axim X5 has Microsoft Pocket Outlook pre-installed, so use that instead of MSN Messenger to e-mail. MSN Messenger is just meant for instant messaging.
You can fill in your e-mailaddress and server-data, while offline, but to sign in with any of those programs you'll need an internet connection, so you first need to connect to a wireless network, that's in range. If there is no wireless network, you have access to, you'll not be able to use these programs.

What do you mean with a wireless card? Is there no wireless card in the PDA, or don't you have a wireless network? To set up a wireless network, you need a wireless router, or WLAN-router.

Success, and just ask if you need more help

"PLEASE SET SYNCHRONIZATION OPTION ENABLE SYNC WHEN OUTLOOK IN UI IN ORDER TO SYNC IN OFFLINE MODE" Just go to your Hotsync Manager icon Click Custom Click each Outlook conduit ex. Calendar Outlook Click Change Click Settings Check the Box that says Enable Synchronization when Outlook is Offline Then do same process for Contacts, Tasks and Memos. Wherever your updated data is..make sure you set Action of conduit to example: Desktop Overwrites HH (if your OUTLOOK has the most updated data.) Hope that resolves your problem.
