    Fixya n' Jus Bobz,

    Best wishes for New year....

    My need for New OS came in as recommendation. I got the BB from states had thought its locked to ATT but after having it checked turns out its NOT. I took it to our service providers, they confirmed same...Prob' it still wont accept our local GSM sims (as it cant find network + camera does't also work, something abt other application being on) I read here abt wiping & re-installin (a.k.a flashing) & hence my query.

    Cheers!

Why would you want a new OS?

    You took the phone to your service provider. Were they able to talk to someone with it. I believe GSM is the lowest rated signal for a phone. If you can't get that, you need to talk about getting out of contract and findgin a company that services your area.

Can i reset forgotten password on BB curve if not enabled


Yes, but you would have to enter the wrong password 10x - Caution - this will wipe your BB of all saved data.

Or can contact your cell provider and see if they can reset your password if not and your BB is issued to you via your Company than you can have your BB Administrator reset your BB password.

Hope this helps.

How do i transfer music from pc to bb curve 8300?


You can't put songs that you have bought from apple. You can put songs that you have riped from CD's or downloaded. You need a micro SD card. On the phone go into options: Advance Options, Media Card. Turn mass storage mode on. Now plug your BB into the computer and a little window will open up. open the Blackberry folder then music. Drop and drag your music files into that folder. if your going to use the Desktop software go to google and type: Blackberry Desktop Manager 4.5. This version comes with a media manager. http://crackberry.com/blackberry-desktop-manager-version-4-5-now-available Click on this link or copy and paste the complete link into your browser.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I Cant send MMs on my Blackberry curve 8300, please Help!


reset the settings.

rom the general menu under security, you can select wipe handheld, and then there should be a checkbox allowing you to wipe all 3rd party applications. This will remove all data and applications.

If you would like to erase the OS, use jl_cmdr (search either here or at blackberryforums.com, i dont have the direct link) and that will erase the OS. Then you can install the new OS to the computer, launch desktop manager, and you'll be all set. Doing that can take a while, so be patient.

Hi,

BlackBerry 8350i does not support "Phone as Modem" straight out of the box :(

Your best solution would be to try Shark Modem. It's a BlackBerry application that allows you to use your BlackBerry modem. 8350i BlackBerry Modem Application

Confirmed that the 8350i doesn't support modem > here

Blackeberry 8300 hard reset


Well, I am not sure if it was a solution, but you may wish to ask your IT admin, if they sent the new IT policy to your BB without notifying you in advance. It has happenned to me today, our IT department sent out an admin command to all BB used in the company to set the new PW and the users are not allowed to disable this function, only the BB admin can do so.
In other words: it is a feature, not a bug...

Hope it helps.

No message services configured after wipe and reset


sounds like you need to set up the WaP settings this and address they use so that email and texting can be used
on your phone and most black berry BB use the same wap
for your BB you set the WaP threw security with the tech of your service provider they will give you info on that to set it up

now for the BB there is a setting if you already have the services it states in service provider if you did not set your service code by registering it with in 48 hours even after a wipe you will need to have a new code installed
after 48 hours of a wipe your services are whats the word scrapped and then you have to set services back up threw service provider this will bring back the tzones and browsers
this info is an add info install
in your BB there is a registration button once you click this after your services you know works will register back all info and place appropriate icons back on the face desktop

i hope this helped you
i went threw this not just 2 weeks ago when i upgraded my BB so im fresh on the info im giving you
