Question about RIM BlackBerry? Curve 8330 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

I have a blackberry curve 8330 and I cannot open any of the ICONS. I can use the rollerball to move the yellow curor over the ICON but I when I push the rollerball to open the application such as EMAIL, it wont open. I have completely recharged the UNIT and I have pulled the battery out and put it back in, and just now the screen will not stay on for more that 1 mintue after I put the battery back in? This unit was purchased on March 6 and it has not be dropped. I cannot make calls but when I call my number the unit will ring but I cannot answer the phone. What can I do? Or do I have to take it in for service? Thanks

Is it old? or even if it's not, do you have the insurance/warranty through your provider? if so, I would get a new phone immediately rather than trying to fix this. It doesn't sound fixable. At the very least before getting the new phone, bring it to your provider's store and have it seen by a technician. They are actually pretty good at fixing a variety of problems. And if they can't fix it, I'm sure they can walk you through the process of getting a new one, or at least direct you to someone who can assist you.

Please do accept the solution and revert for further assistance.

My blackberry has problem with rollerball not responding when pressed

The balls get clogged with grease and skin from your finger over time. turn off the blackberry or pull the battery. Get rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab and rub the top of the ball getting off as much of the black as you can. Rotate it slightly and do the same until the entire ball is done. Then push quickly upward against the ball, downward, left, and then right several times in each direction.

Replace the battery, start the phone, and see how it works.

My son said he added a folder to his 8330 blackberry curve and now all the icons on the front screen and all other screens have dissappeared. I am clueless on what he did. He can still make and recieve...

From the home screen where the icons used to be, press the BB menu butoon, then select Show all and press the Pearl Button.

If that does not work, then download and install the latest version of BlackBerry Desktop Manager software from:

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.

If the issue is still present, then it could be hardware related, and may need to be repaired or replaced. I would then suggest contacting your Provider for Hardware Support.

    The tracking ball rotates but it does not move over the icons on the left side. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

    Depending on how comfortable you are with removing the trackball it's not hard to fix... you may have some dirt or grit interfering with the trackball and/or sensors. Take a small screwdriver or blade and gently pop the silver ring around the trackball off. This will free the actual trackball housing. Use an old toothbrush to clean everything. I also soaked the trackball in a little rubbing alcohol. Just make sure it is completely dry before reassembling. If that doesn't work you can purchase replacement trackballs from places like
