    I've got bigger problems with this NEW blackberry.

    The roller ball to manage the application window WILL NOT

    roll horizontally left and right. In other words it

    can't be taken for granted that I can use the phone

    and my calling plan to the fullest capacity.

    This is a new phone - purchased less than 24 hours ago.

    I've known other friends to have the same problem.

    I should have learned from them.

Does the sim-card work in another phone? If yes, then you should try a software restore with application loader. If that also fails, the only way to get it up and running again is to open yourblackberry to physically replace the anteanna or logic board. If you want somebody else to doit for you go to Blackberry Repair. If you want to do it yourself, here is a Blackberry curve Repair Guide that shows how, the part is available on Ebay.

You can pop the track ball out and roll it in your fingers. Something in your pocket (or whereever) has gottne into the ball. If it is less than 24hours old....WARRANTY

I cannot get the internet to work on my LG Neon for straight talk

Can you still make/receive phone calls and send/receive text messaging without pictures? Do you have enough signal strength (3G or 4G bars at top) to get a good signal without roaming?
When I was in Greenville a while back, I had problems doing anything other than making/receiving phone calls (no internet, no pix). Ends up, AT&T simply had a very weak signal where I was at. I ended up switching to another phone and carrier that had better support in more areas.

I'd recommend calling AT&T cell phone support to also make sure your data (internet) and messaging (text&pix) plans are still active.
Of course, if you can't even make/receive phone calls, you likely have a more basic problem; your phone may have not been validated with AT&T yet.

In either case I'd recommend calling AT&T wireless tech support at 800-331-0500 (type 0 to get a live person) to help troubleshoot the issue with your phone. If you haven't received your phone number yet, you may need to remove the battery to provide them will more detailed info regarding your phone and sim.

The pearl can also play music files which you can enjoy with the help of a hands free Bluetooth headset. Let me teach you how to pair a Blackberry Pearl Smartphone to a Bluetooth headset.

    Activate the Bluetooth wireless connection on your BlackBerry Pearl by Going into your "Settings" menu

    Select the "Options" menu to go to your connectivity settings

    Click on the "Bluetooth" option to activate the connection

    Choose the "Add Device" option on your BlackBerry Pearl to locate the headset

    Wait for a while as your Smartphone locates the Bluetooth headset

    Enter 0000 for the password after selecting the headset to complete the Bluetooth pairing process

    After that, your Done !!!!you can now send and receive. But after following this instruction and no solution yet, that means there is something wrong with your blue tooth. Corrupted. You will need to reset the phone.

    I bought my son a blackberry curve 8250 a few days ago. I cannot send any files to his new phone via bluetooth, even though the phones do pair with each other. Please help!

    When you send over bluetooth on a blackberry and the handset pairs you need to select the file type you are send and be in the folder to received. Once in that folder you need to click the blackberry key and select received via bluetooth.

    Can't use wi-fi without data plan? on blackberry bold 9700 can't transfer pictures from laptop to blackberry either?

    you can surf the net on a wifi network even of you dont have a data plan. turn the wifi on then select "set up wifi network" then just follow the instructions to be able to connect to the network. if you still can't after doing this, it might be because the signal of the network is not that strong.
    regarding the bluetooth, go to media, then press the menu button (the bb logo), then select "receive via bluetooth" for your bb to receive the file from your laptop/other phones.

    I can't make calls from my Blackberry 7290

    Check on the right hand corner of your device for the vertical signal bars - 5 bars indicate full strength and 1 indicate very low signal. "OFF" indicates the radio is off and need to be turned on.

    In case signal strength is good, you should be able to make and receive calls. In case it does not work, just try taking the battery out and put it back after 15 seconds and try again.

    In case signal strength is low , either you are in a low signal zone or your SIM card is bad. Take the SIM card out, wipe the gold plated surface using a clean tissue, put it back and try again.

    In case the radio is OFF, turn it on by clicking on the icon (Turn Wireless on) on the home page.
