Turn your phone on then with the phone on, take the battery out, wait a few seconds replace the battery. the screen will be white for 30 secs to a minute and then it will ask you for your pin. you will have no more probs

I contacted the AT&T tech support person:

Sara Paige: Hello and welcome to the AT&T Technical Support Chat. My name is Sara Paige.
ME: my Blackberry Bold is running really slow and every few seconds or so there is a little black box come up in the middle of the screen like it is thinking? Can u help?
ME: all weekend it was running really slow, for 2 days straight, would you be able to explain the cause of this?
Sara Paige: how often do you power your phone off?
ME: very rarely
Sara Paige: we ask that you power your phone off and then back on everyday because we are always sending downloads to the phone and by doing this then you will also keep a fresh registration.
ME: how long should i power off my phone for?
Sara Paige: Just a couple of mintues.
ME: okay great, thank you.

New BlackBerry 9700(T-mobile) Review


BlackBerry Bold 9700 Release Date
After T-Mobile announced they will release the new flagship phone BlackBerry 9700 on Nov. 11th, only one day later, T-Mobile expressed that another blackberry phone with WI-FI will appear on Nov.5th, and this phone may will be the BlackBerry Bold 9700. Here is to hoping it comes sooner rather than later! Especially for those T-Mobile fanboys who have been missing 3G for all these years.

BlackBerry Bold 9700 ahead Review
Oh you thought we fell off. Nope — we've just been tearing apart BlackBerry's latest flagship over the past week or so and our review is finally perfectly crafted. The BlackBerry 9700 replaces the Bold as RIM's newest flagship device. We've already detailed our thoughts on RIM and how they are doing on the software side of things and this review will be mostly hardware focused. at the end, We will add some reviews on this BlackBerry 9700' useful software and recommend an applied BlackBerry tool – Daniusoft DVD to BlackBerry Converter suite which composed of DVD to BlackBerry converter and BlackBerry Video Converter. It can help you convert DVD and all popular video to BlackBerry AVI in a high quality for watching DVD Movies and various video on your BlackBerry phone any time and any place.

* Hardware / Design:
Gorgeous. How do you like that description? From the beveled edges to the powder-coated keyboard, this is one good looking BlackBerry. The much loved (and hated) fake leather textured battery cover makes a reappearance here as does a trackpad to handle the navigational duties.

The 9700 makes the Tour look like a bloated 8-month pregnant single mother. Shave about 24% of the surface area off the Tour, bevel the edges, round the corners, and you'll have something close to the BlackBerry 9700. It's the most gorgeous BlackBerry on the planet. And no, that's not up for debate or discussion. Early units had the straight RIM color theme on the keyboards (white letters with red accents/symbols) but the unit we have which is most likely what AT&T will receive is all white. This looks great meshed with the titanium chrome finish on the bezel and the high gloss black finish on the front of the device.

* Screen:
RIM really moved in a brand new direction with the Bold's display and ever since, they've been continuing the tradition of awesomeness. We're really happy to report that the BlackBerry 9700 has the best screen to date of any BlackBerry handset. It's that good. The resolution, which is the new RIM gold standard, is 480×360 and while you wouldn't expect it to be any better than the Tour's or Curve 8900's screens,it is. Pictures appear as if they're floating on top of the display, blacks are black and colors are crisp and vibrant. There's a pretty decently-sized black border that goes around the entire display much like how the BlackBerry Tour's screen looks, and while people have moaned about this ad nauseum, it doesn't really phase us.
blackberry-9700-1.jpg
* OS:
The latest versions of OS 5.0 (which have leaked for existing handsets like the 9530, 9630, Bold, 8900, etc.) show a slight UI refresh with more blues, more gradients, updated icons and buttons and even — *gasp* — kinetic scrolling on some devices. Here's where it gets a little tricky, though. AT&T's BlackBerry 9700 evaluation units shipped with OS 5.0.0.169. The unit we have originally came with that OS and worked magically. It, however, didn't have the updated UI that later OS 5.0 builds contain. After upgrading our unit to OS 5.0.0.215 (internal builds for the 9700 are up beyond .249, we're told) it's now rocking out with the updates features and sexified UI elements. Why we're going into this so deeply is because there's a good chance that if AT&T's 9700 passes technical acceptance without issue (we don't anticipate the same issues that plagued the Bold's release), the version that will ship with the 9700 will be 5.0.0.169 or something close to it. That means that you'll be running an "old" 5.0 build and it's interesting to see this play out. You'll obviously be able to install different OS versions for yourself that have been released by other carriers, but we just wanted to give you guys a heads up that the release unit's OS might be a little different.

* BlackBerry 9700 software
The BlackBerry 9700 sports a premium experience and design with a high-gloss black finish and leather grain detail on the back. Boasting features such as high-speed 3G Web browsing, Wi-Fi calling, visual voicemail and support for corporate and personal e-mail options, the Blackberry 9700 will satisfy all your on-the-go needs. Also the phone comes preloaded with mobile applications from BlackBerry App World, including Amazon MP3 store for quick and easy music downloads and TeleNav GPS Navigator for turn-by-turn directions

Finally, As BlackBerry fans, let's look forward to the new BlackBerry Bold 9700 together… In addition, for BlackBerry users, I recommend a necessary tool – Daniusoft DVD to BlackBerry Converter suite which composed of DVD to BlackBerry ripper and Video to BlackBerry converter. It can help you convert DVD and all popular video to BlackBerry AVI in a high quality for watch DVD Movies and various video on your BlackBerry phone any time and any place.

Tips: References of Daniusoft DVD to BlackBerry converter suite:
Input formats: DVD(DVD Folder, IFO Files, ISO File);
All the popular video format such as AVI, MP4, MPEG, WMV, XviD, DAT, MOV, FLV...

Output formats: BlackBerry video and audio AVI files; (Blackberry Tour 9630, BlackBerry Curve 8300, BlackBerry 8300, BlackBerry 8800, BlackBerry Pearl 8800, BlackBerry bold 9700)

MY BLACKBERRY BOLD 9000 WON'T TURN ON!!! My friend gave me her Blackberry Bold 9000. It's battery was replaced a few months ago but it hasn't been used since then. When I plug it into the wall charger,...


Ok...don't panic. The charger you are using is not compatible. Verizon only works with verizon blackberry's. Non verizon will not work with blackberry and vice versa. This is what will happen. you plug it in and it will boot for a few seconds and then the lightning bolt you see is the charge icon and then a red line in it means that charger is not compatable. Blackberry does make its own charger but there is a "pin" on the plug in that will tell it it is not the right one. Am I confusing you?
