SOURCE: I want to sinc my Blackberry Playbook to my Windows 7

You need the Blackberry Desktop software installed on the computer to synch your data, music, and video on the Playbook to that on the PC. This software is available here:;jsessionid=F3B0494BF2ABF9E47D9531B30BD6E7BF.node1 . The direct link to the multi-language version of the software is: .

If the above links do not work, start here: and click on the Downloads for Blackberry Desktop Software. Then use the drop-down menu to select Blackberry Desktop Software Windows OS. Then download the .exe. Below you will find individual language versions. Install the software (in Win7 you need to be the Administrator).

Enable Bluetooth on the computer and pair the computer to the Blackberry.
See for more information.

Next click on Device -> Device Options and go to the General tab. Then set the "When I connect my device" items for those you want to have synchronized.

I hope this helps.

My Blackberry Playbook won't allow me past the agreement stage of the initial set-up. There is no country shown in the drop down menu. Advice please

Hey Brian,
This might be a little more complex, but it does work. When you plug your Blackberry into your computer, under the software forget your existing device. From there go ahead and reinstall the desktop software. Unplug your Blackberry and run the desktop manager. In the device menu the only available options are Sync Type, Switch Devices and Exit. Power down the Blackberry. In the desktop software, go ahead and click the Switch Devices button and plug in your Blackberry as prompted. From here be sure you have a local wifi you can connect to and the Blackberry should start up as normal.

Why does my blackberry playbook not connect to the internet

Try going to the picture of the "cog" (settings) in the upper right hand corner of your screen. Then, select WiFi. Make sure you are connected to the proper server. It should turn green with the tethering arrows showing. If it is already green and you have selected the proper server, select it again anyway. Or, on the screen, tap on the wiFi symbol and select ON. Good luck!!!

How to connect blackberry playbook to desktop running on windows

You can connect blackberry to desktop. no any issue flow instruction.>

Note: Make sure you have the BlackBerry Desktop Software/ Device Manager installed first. Before you continue. Well, it didn't take me long to figure out the issue. All you have to do is unplug the Playbook, go to your Settings > Storage & Sharing (Make sure "File Sharing" is switched to "ON) > Switch "Wi-Fi Sharing to "OFF" > Select "Connect to Windows" under "USB Connections" drop menu. Go back to your BB Desktop Software. Go to, Tools > Refresh iTunes Album Art. (Note: It can take a few minutes depending iTunes Library size) Plug your BlackBerry Playbook back to your PC through the USB connection, wait for it to load and you should be able to Sync your Files. Thanks

Nope, you actually cant insert a sim card in the blackberry playbook.
That is possible only in other tablets such as the Ipad.

Just purchased Blackberry Playbook. Set up wifi. Followed instructions on screen & set up account. Accepted agreement. Next screen went to update. Update finished & said it was restarting. ...

Sounds like a bad install on the new operating system. Since your question was posted in April, I'm assuming you have the problem solved by now, or returned the device, but for anyone else looking at this, I suggest either returning the device and exchanging it, or if you prefer to solve it with this device, then leave it on and let the battery run down. Once it is dead, try plugging the device in and powering it on, hopefully that gets you back in business. Blackberry Tech Support is also helpful, their phone number for your country should be on their website.
