507 means your phone thinks it has no operating system on it.
you need install Desktop Manager. then connect bb. open application loader from DM -> install OS to your phone
PS:must remove vendor.xml in Program files on computer. Dwonload the DM from this link: Or go to your provider's website and download it from there. And read this link: Click on this link or copy and paste the complete link into your browser.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Hi I haven't used my phone for a couple of years. when I switch it on now it say.. error 102 reload software... what do I do?

You need to do a Factory Reset, AKA a Hard Reset. This removes everything on the phone and reloads the operating system. Your phone is a Blackberry?

    Reload software 522

    Reload software 522 on the BB is liking saying wipe out your BB and start afresh. Here is what you do;
    On your PC, make sure you have the current version of Blackberry desktop manager and the latest Operating system.
    But, before you go wipe your BlackBerry, you might want to try a basic USB connection first. Plug in your Berry and instead of running Desktop Manager, run App Loader. There's a chance the device will connect and if it does,you can play around in the device's files,back them up if you have not just in case u have to do a full Wipe or format. I'd recommend deleting any recently installed applications, plus any unused theme files including your current theme, just to be sure. For some reason, third party themes can cause problems. Also, if you can upgrade your Operating system(OS) through App Loader, try that too. Once you do that, disconnect the device and see if it works. If it still doesn't work,then you have to wipe the device clean. to do that please follow the instructions on this link

    My blackberry phone kept asking for the password and after that it just went blank and said it was gonna wipe out all the info on my phone. Now I can not turn my phone on cause it keeps saying reload...

    If the password was entered incorrectly a few types the Blackberry will say that it will wipe the entire contents back to factory. The error is unusual though. What you need to do is plug the phone into your computer and within the Blackberry software perform a full restore of the firmware software. This should fix the issue and put the phone in working order.

    I am trying to put my AT&T Sim Card on a Blackberry Pearl that I brought from my home country Ecuador. I get a message that says searching for network, then it finds cingular network, but then says...

    You will need to wipe the device (wipe handheld in the setting menu) and reload the BB software specifically designed for ATT phones from there website. It is probably finding Cingular because they were merged with ATT.
    select your BB model and the lateset software version. Press next, then download and install it using the Desktop Manager Application Loader. You should download 4.7 of that too.

    Reload error:507 curve 8900

    well you have done great so far. Error 507 means that JL-CMDER has done its job and wiped all applications off your phone. So just do the next step by connecting it to your 4.7 Blackberry Desktop and select App Loader and install the OS and Applications on the phone. Please write again if you need more help

    My blackberry freezes at random moments and i have to remove the battery to get it to unfreeze

    Hi there!

    The first thing you might want to check for is the version of the software on the phone.

    On your Blackberry device, navigate into Options>Advanced Options and select "Wireless Upgrade". That will check for any available updates that have not yet been applied to your phone. The process involves 3 steps: requesting the new software, downloading the software and then upgrading the software on your Blackberry device.

    Click Next, then Check for Upgrades.

    The message "No Upgrades Available" will appear on the screen if there are none available. If there is one available, the entire process should be automated.

    Has the device ever been dropped in water or had liquid damage? If so, that damage is not usually repairable and the device will need to be replaced.

    Did you buy this Blackberry new or used?

    If you don't want to call your provider right away and you don't mind losing your customized layout or personal information (i.e. numbers, contacts, photos, videos, audio files, calendar info, etc) you can try to wipe it and reset the phone.

    To do this: Navigate to Options>Security Options>General Settings

    Then click the scroll wheel Blackberry button to open the menu and select "Wipe Handheld". If the problem still occurs after you've done this, the device may simply be faulty.

    I've gone through 3 Blackberry's myself and each one had problems related to factory error. Even the one I own now sometimes shutdowns on its own. It's rare, so I manage, but the point I'm making is that it's not uncommon for Blackberry's to malfunction with no apparent reason for doing so.

    If you purchased a warranty with the device, you may be able to have it replaced for free. If you don't want to replace it immediately and you've tried or don't want to use the "Wipe Handheld" option, you can contact your service provider's support team for more technical instructions that might fix your device.

    I hope this helps! Feel free to reply if you have any questions.

    Need to reload software 513 blackberry

    the Application error 513, reset message says that the device OS is toasted and needs to be rebuilt. In order to do this, you need to have Blackberry Desktop manager on your computer, your data cable, and a download for your device software. Either from blackberry or your carrier. The easiest method is to download and install the device software. Once it's installed, launch desktop manager and plug in the phone. If the phone is detected, you will be prompted to update. Follow the prompts. If not, you will have to do it the hard way. open command prompt (start>run>cmd) and goto C:\program files\common files\Research in Motion\Apploader Then choose Loader /NOJVM That's going to rebuild the blackberry.

    Error message

    It could need to have all of your software reloaded again.
    Goto your desktop manager and select software upgrades.  Looks for the 8300 update.  It should be version 4.5.  Download it to your computer.
    If desktop manager sees the phone, the update should load.
    4.5 will replace your existing software set with a new one.
    The new version the came out on the 20th covers video recording and has new browser improvements as well.

    Camera wont start!

    If these two options haven't worked, then the final thing to do is actually delete the entire operating system and reload it from scratch. There is a program called JL_Cmder that allows you to completely erase the operating system and data and programs. Check out the two links below:
