Try solution: download and install the latest version of BlackBerry Desktop Manager software from: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/contactFormPreload.do?code=A8BAA56554F96369AB93E4F3BB068C22&dl=DA5FB46338C8C0DCB1039F7898184FC5

Once installed, connect your BlackBerry to your computer via the USB sync cable. Open Desktop Manager, and click the Application Loader. On the right, you will see Update your device software. Click the Start Button, and if your BlackBerry is not on the latest Handheld Software, an update will appear. Select the update, and run the install. Be sure to select the option that backs up and restores your data. Once started, do not shut down your computer, or disconnect the USB sync cable as this could damage the device.

Once completed, your BlackBerry will restart and you will have the latest version available. This version has been known to correct various issues.

How to put phone numbers on the blackberry 8120


you have 2 options. you can load them directly in your "address book" by going into your address book, menu button (bb icon left of trackball), select "New Address" and enter the info.
Option 2 , would be going into your address book, select "SIM phone book" and enter the info there.
Keep in mind, when you use the SIM phone book option, you can only enter their name and phone number, and after you are done, you have to import your SIM contacts to your address book.
Any contacts saved using the SIM option, will stay on your SIM card.
Any contacts using the Address Book option, will only remain on the phone, and not on your sim card.
ho[pe this helps!

Unlocked 8700c blackberry sim card info not showing


Yes, the blackberry and SIM memory are different.

You will need to copy all contacts onto the BB memory to make full use of its features.

You can do this by going to address book /Options/ SIM Contacts and Copy All to address book.

7290 rim blackberry wont let me text my daughters phone


You text by choosing SMS on the menu options. Do you have email on the device? If so, go into the email icon and see if the SMS option appears on the menu (same menu you look at to compose a new email). If you don't have email, you can see if it's on the menu within the call icon.

Go into your address book/contacts. Hit the menu key and you should see an option for the SIM contacts. Go into it and hit menu. This should show you a copy option. I think you can also do it by going into settings.

Get back if this was helpful or you need more help.

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.

I would use the blackberry desktop manager to make a complete backup of the bb, then delete all records in the databases. Reboot the bb and restore. Good luck
