Frozen blackberry 7520..after using the desktop hardware?

I cannot move the trackwheel on the device,bb 7520, otherwise I would have already tried to resolve these problems. The bb threw an error JVM of 523...after using the cd and running the desktop manager ...the track wheel is frozen,it seems as if it wiped out all including the driver?? Is that a possiblity? So all I am left with is NXTl and a frozen trackwheel so i cannot answer the phone if it rings,get my email or messages,ugh ??!! I would really like to try to find help with this as now it has become a battle to not let this PDA win this damn battle,anyone have a solution or should I just shoot it and put it out of it's misery,lol?!

I am not able to receive calls the next day after charging my Blackberry 9530 storm, then i have to remove the battery and put it back again to receive calls. Any permanent solution for it?

Yes, there is a solution and I hope this also works for you. My 9550 would freeze and I couldn't answer a call, or it will just freeze on it's own at least once or twice a day. I also had to remove the battery then replace it and it will be fine again. After emailing the store where I bought the phone. One of the solutions was to wipe the memory as stated here. (To try to "wipe handheld":
1. In the device Options, click Security.
If you are using BlackBerry Device Software 4.1, click Security Options > General Security.
2. Click the trackwheel and select Wipe Handheld.
3. Click Continue.
4. Type blackberry and All the data on the BlackBerry device is erased.)
Then restart the phone and it should work.
Better yet. If you have the BlackBerry Desktop Software Application on your computer. If you don't go here It's a 114mb file. Connect your BB with your data usb cable. Then back up the phone and do a software update (Which is what I did). The software will back up your data, then wipe your BB clean. Then it reinstalls the software. The process takes between 30 minutes to one hour to complete. You should be ok after the update. My BB 9550 works fine now since the update four days ago. No more issues.

How do I use the loud speaker on a Blackberry pearl?

Hi there

Although the Blackberry pearl does not come with a speakerphone, you can still set up this function by using a Bluetooth device.


Power on your Blackberry using the On/Off button in the lower right-hand corner of the device

Turn on Bluetooth

Find the Bluetooth option. In the main menu, select "device options."

Enable Bluetooth radio. Click on the trackwheel to scroll down until you see the option "Enable Bluetooth". Select this function (click the trackwheel) to turn on Bluetooth compatibility. If you have completed this step correctly, you will now see a "Bluetooth icon" on your Blackberry screen. If you want, you can later turn off Bluetooth by repeating Steps 1 to 3 and then selecting "disable Bluetooth".

Pair your Blackberry with a Bluetooth speakerphone

Power on your Bluetooth speakerphone device using its On/Off switch or button.

Find the Bluetooth option in the main menu by again selecting "device options" and then using the trackwheel to scroll down until you see Bluetooth. Select this by clicking the trackwheel.

Add your Bluetooth device. Click on the trackwheel to scroll down until you see "Add Device." Then click on the trackwheel to select this function.

Enter the name and passkey of your Bluetooth device. When prompted, scroll down with the track wheel until you see the name of your Bluetooth device. Your Blackberry automatically detect your Bluetooth speakerphone if it is within 10 meters. If it does not, enter the name of the device, then type in the passkey provided by the manufacturer of the speakerphone.

Enter the passkey on your Bluetooth speakerphone. Your Blackberry and Bluetooth speakerphone can now communicate with one another.

To use the speaker during a call all you need to do is;

Dial a number and hit the send key. Make sure that your Bluetooth speakerphone is on, and that you have already set your Blackberry to "Enable Bluetooth." If you see the "Bluetooth icon" you have already done this step.

Activate your Bluetooth device. When the call has connected, click on the trackwheel until you see the option "Bluetooth Device". Then click on the trackwheel to activate the Bluetooth function. Your Blackberry will now route your call to the Bluetooth Speakerphone.

Turn on the speakerphone. Depending on which Bluetooth Speakerphone you have purchased, you may need to click on the "speakerphone" button to enable this function. Once the speakerphone is on, you may continue with your phone call.

Blackberry curve won't turn on...

Wipe it to start over. Sometimes when you change or add something like a THEME or a download it HOSES the BB completely. So delete what was on there and don't download a theme or any other wacky add-on.

To Sanitize or Clear out all the information in a Blackberry Device
Scroll to select the OPTIONS icon and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select SECURITY and press [Trackwheel] to select.
On some units you may have to select GENERAL SETTINGS before getting the next menu.
Press [Trackwheel] again to access the Menu screen for the security.
Scroll to select the WIPE HANDHELD and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll UP to select CONTINUE and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Type blackberry on keyboard to confirm the action press <-| key.
System responds with ERASING INFORMATION.

How do I stop my Blackberry going on to standby

I don't know what you are referring to when you say STANDBY option, so I'll include what I know about the password option. Maybe you mean SECURITY TIMEOUT, or maybe your version calls it standby time..

Setting up a password for the device:
Scroll to select the SETTINGS/OPTIONS icon and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select SECURITY OPTIONS and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select GENERAL SETTINGS before getting the next menu.
Scroll to select the PASSWORD It should say ENABLED.
For most people the security timeout is set to 1 HOUR.

Setting up the time it takes for the BB to require a password:
Select the line you need to change, and Press [Trackwheel] to access the Menu
CHANGE OPTION should be highlighted Press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll UP to select ENABLED and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select the SAVE and press [Trackwheel] to select.
System responds with NEW PASSWORD: input your new password press the <-| key.
System will ask you to re-enter your NEW PASSWORD: input your new password again and press <-| key.

Your SIM Card is like a floppy disk, so if you want to permanently add those people from your sim card to your Blackberry - you need to copy from the SIM into the BB Address Book. Otherwise they will be on the SIM Address Book, and you can always go look them up - but they are not saved on the BB itself.

BB: To access your cell phone address book:
  1. Scroll to select the ADDRESS BOOK icon and press [Trackwheel] to select.
  2. Press [Trackwheel] again to access the Menu screen for the address book.
  3. Scroll to select the SIM PHONE BOOK and press [Trackwheel] to select.
  4. system should say LOADING SIM PHONE BOOK.
  5. Then if you select the menu - you should have an option to COPY ALL TO ADDRESS BOOK, select YES so it will copy whats on the SIM to the BB Memory..
This will start the download process to read the contacts stored on your SIM card which were copied from your cell phone.

From the ADDRESS BOOK icon, press the trackwheel for the drop down menu.
Select SIM CARD Phone Book.
Load those contacts if they are not saved onto your BB memory (sim memory and BB memory are different)

Once you load them, then press trackwheel to get the drop down menu again, and COPY ALL From SIM to your BB memory.

TADA, now they will be in your ADDRESS BOOK icon from now forward.

Device error 400

here is what you do, providing you already have Blackberry desktop manager on your computer... do not plug your phone in, but have the cable ready to connect quickly. make sure you are connected to the internet as well. go to the blackberry website or google 7290 OS update, download newest version (4.1 or newer), enter you service provider etc. (you have to do this before it will download), save it to your desktop. install it to your computer, then open BB desktop manager. now with the battery in your phone and the message displaying error 400 reset - push the trackwheel in and quickly connect the cable and select install applications etc on BB Desktop manager. click next and follow the prompts, it takes some time, but it'll be back to new again.
