Re: Not able to dail without saving the number to contact

Make sure that you are hitting the green phone key when you are trying to dial and not the left soft key.

My wing WT8120D5 phone when i call safaricom customer care number 100,it dials police station what is the problem&how is it set,

Your device has a saved list of important call numbers. The device has been provided auto dial precedence. Reseting the auto or fast dial would prevent dialing soon after pressing talk or call on the phone. Also, your phone subscriber provides the means of last resort to emergency numbers. For example, you may be out of service, however, your phone despite calling anyhwhere provides free emergency contact inspite of not asking for such. Contact the the phoneprovide for alterations.

I think this is a normal behavior of WM. As you go dialing, it goes trying to match it against your contacts list, so that you can easily select the one you want to call without even finishing keying his/her number in. You just have to select the name from the list it offers and, with few operations, make the call.
I might be heavily wrong, though.
Just my 2 cents... Carlos

Speed-dial has quit working

Went into "Contacts" and selected one with speed-dial to edit. Made no changes but saved the contact. Magically, speed-dial began working correctly for all numbers. Rebooting or removing/reinserting the battery may also have worked but were not tried.

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

I can't dial out.

The Phone application on the BlackBerry smartphone automatically converts phone numbers that include letters into the associated numbers.
To key a phone number that contains letters, press the right Shift key or the Alt key and type. The letters appear on your screen, but the BlackBerry smartphone translates them into the appropriate numbers when the phone call is made.
For example, to call 1-877-BLK-BERR (1-877-255-2377) from your BlackBerry smartphone,
  1. Open the Phone application.
  2. Type 1877.
  3. Press and hold the Alt or right Shift key and type BLKBERR.
  4. Display the menu and select Call 1877BLKBERR or press Enter. When the phone number is dialed, the letters are converted to numbers on the screen.
  5. To end the phone call, hold down the Escape key.
To return to the Home screen from any other screen, press the End key.
To lock the device, set a password. Hold the * key.
To unlock the device, press the * key. Click Unlock. Type your password.
To lock the keyboard, hold the * key.
To unlock the keyboard, press the * key

To switch the input language, hold the Alt key and press the Enter key. Continue to hold the Alt key and select a language. Release the Alt key to switch to that language.
To switch back to your original input language, press the Alt key + the Enter key.

I hope this helps

Hi Linesh

Just had a look through the i600 manual and this is how you save a speed dial:

1. On the Home screen, press the Contacts soft key. You
can also press the Start soft key and select Contacts.
2. Select a contact from the list.
3. Scroll to a number, e-mail address, or web page
4. Press the Menu soft key and select Add to Speed Dial.
5. If necessary, enter the name you want.
6. In the Keypad assignment field, select a location.
7. Press the Done soft key

Hope this helps.

Dialing on 755p

Ok theres two ways to do this, heres 1 way: press menu while you our on the phone display (the button to the right of alt) use the 5 way navigator to move to the right, scroll down to phone display options. Below the Show Dial Pad/ Show Wallpaper, you'll see where it says typing dials phone number change that to typing starts contact search. This will permanently make it liek your old treo. If you wanna dial numbers press the white button to thte left of z and start dialing the numbers.

Version 2: If you dial normally it will dial numbers, if you press th white button to the left of z then type contact name also works.

hopes this help

Problem is""phone star-up failed. contact the retailer"

The best solution for this problem is to format the phone memory. U may think format will erase all applications but it is false . The essential softwares like mp3 player, camera, etc. are not erased.
The process for format of phone is :
1) turn off the mobile.
2) press and hold ( green dial button + 3 keypad + * ) and turn on the phone holding these 3 buttons(dial button + 3 + *) until formatting screen appears.
3) When formatting screen appears, just leave the keys. and ur phone is formatted now.
4) When finished, it asks for restart of phone.
5) Restart ur phone, and ur phone is ready.
