Check to make sure the numbers have been saved correctly under you contacts, i ran into an issue like this before and it was because 2 different contacts had the same number saved. the msg would send to who you selected but the address book would select the first name that was present in alpha order for the number the msg was sent to.

For more assistance feel free to email support@ridarweck.com someone will respond to your email in a timely manner. Our site is down for redesign but email is still fully functional. Upon the return of our site we with be offering great blackberry downloads as well as 24/7 blackberry assistance.

You need to call AT&T and ask them to change your data and text plan to a Blackberry plan. You can almost interchange any microsoft smartphone and pda but not between iphone, blackberry and Windows Mobile device. Hope this helps.

My Blackberry curve 8310 constantly reboots when I'm in the middle of a text, a phone call, or when it's just sitting on my desk. It happens several times a day. It seems to happen less often if I...


This issue only occurs when trying to send a SMS text message from within the call details screen of a call in the call log.
To avoid this issue, complete the following steps to send a SMS text message from the call log screen:

  1. Open the Phone application.
  2. Open the Call Log by clicking the middle button in the toolbar.
  3. Touch the call log/contact in the list without clicking the screen.
  4. Display the menu, then select SMS Text (Name/Number).
  5. If required, rotate the BlackBerry smartphone to switch to landscape mode.

Can't send or receive text messages anymore!


Pull the battery out while the phone is still on, wait 30 sec. to 1 min and then put it back in, should solve the problem.

*Mine has done the same thing 3 times so far, just keep pulling the battery out and put it back in until they figure out what the issue is and make a fix.*

How can i configure message services to text someone?


First, I assume you have a service provider, a valid cell phone number and that your service provider has enabled text messaging as part of your plan.

To send a text message, go to "Messages", then click "Compose SMS", "[Use Once]", "SMS".

Type the cell phone number of the person you want to send the message to.

Click the trackwheel, then "Continue".

Type a message.

Click the trackwheel.

Click "Send".

If you still are not able to send a text message, you need to verify that "fixed dialing mode" is not enabled. To do that:

Go to Phone Options.

Click "FDN Phone List".

Click the trackwheel.

Click "Disable FDN Mode".

Roller ball on my Blackberry Pearl will not work.


I had the same thing happen. Tried everything to fix it. Finally, after a couple of hours of troubleshooting, I just gave up and went and put in on the charger. When I did that it fixed it. Have no clue why but it did.

i dont have a blackjack but this happened on my blackberry 8800. i just deleted a bunch of old text messages and it started working fine. i guess it was running out of memory and that was causing it to run slow.

i dont know if this will work for a blackjack.

Text messaging


Emergency calls only happens for 2 reasons
The first is caused by the phone being locked. Since I don't know the source of your phone at this point I cannot help you unlock it.
The second comes from an error in programming and would need to be fixed by a dealer with the cellular provider you are with. If you do not have a cellular provider then you need ot select one compatible with the phone and activate it.
As far as not being able to reply to the text messages are you getting an error, or do you just need to know where to go to select the reply option?
Also if you have not selected a carrier and had the phone programmed properly this would also prevent you from sending text messages
