    i fixed my own problem by taking out the track bal and cleaning the area where the trackball button is, and tried to push it to see if it would worked, but it didnt. the button has a little orange film and a push button under it. i pilled the film off and the little button came off also, then i bent the button just a little because it was staying pushed down without the orange film. used a little peace of clear tape to hold the button down and i then could select my apps. after installing the trackball back in.

How to move applications on a BlackBerry Tour


With its default setup, when you download an application to your BlackBerry Tour, it goes into the Downloads folder. However, this isn't where most users want to keep their applications -- typically they move them to the Applications folder, the Home folder, or a custom folder.

To move an application, highlight its icon with the trackball and press the BlackBerry button (the one with seven dots to the left of the trackball) and select "Move To Folder" from the menu that pops up. A list of all of your folders will appear; select the folder you want to move it to and either press the trackball or the Enter key. The application will disappear from the current folder and it can now be found in the folder you moved it to.

You can also move the application around within that folder, if you want to switch the order of programs. This can be useful for the Home folder if you're using the Zen layout, because the first six programs in the Home folder appear on the main screen. To change the order of applications within a folder, hover over an application you want to move, press the BlackBerry button, and choose "Move." Then go to the position you want to place the folder, and press the trackball.

If you want your downloaded applications to go somewhere else rather than the Downloads folder, you can specify a location by clicking the BlackBerry button when you're in the Home folder and selecting Options. Scroll down to Downloads Folder, press the trackball or Enter, and choose a new folder to save your downloaded applications to. (Be sure to save your change when exiting the Options screen.)

Bought used sim card for Blackberry rim 7520


the phone number should be retrieved from the sim card or carrier login procedure.

I had a few blackberry's, including a 75xx series one, and when I popped in another card (I have a couple of prepaid subscriptions for testing), the number always came up automatically.

Should work... If not, try contacting RIM/Blackberry support, but I doubt they'll still give support for the 7xxx series models... sorry
