Question about RIM BlackBerry ® 8830 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

I arrived in So. Africa on Monday. My Blackberry 8830 will not turn on. It was fine when I left JFK. The screen is black and the light flashes red. I cannot use the Blackberry Message Center on my laptop as the computer does not recognize it's connection to the USB port. I am deperate for the information on my phone for work here. PLEASE HELP!!!

    I travel back and forth to So. Africa many times during the year and my Blackberry 8830 has always worked perfectly except for this time. It doesn't make sense about a "lock feature".

It is because the black berry has some features that it has a lock which activates when you leave any country. Your phone will start working again when u will get back to JFK.

Blackberry 8830 will not power up; 4 red flashes


I was experiencing the same issue with my 8830. After I attempted to install updates through the blackberry site, it rebooted and would not boot up. I went back to the blackberry site: http://na.blackberry.com/eng/support/downloads/download_sites.jsp I downloaded the latest from my carrier and I installed it using the exe that I got from my vendor. The whole process took 45 mins but I have a working BB again.
