Question about RIM BlackBerry 7210

Open Question

Cannot turn wireless on

When I select "wireless" on my 7210, the message at the bottom of the screen says "Turn Wireless On," as usual. I know this means my wireless is off. So, to turn the wireless on, when I click the tracking roller a messag box appears that says "Wireless turning off, please wait..." instead of turning on... and of course it doesn't turn on. Is there any fix for this, that I can attempt, or is there something Fatal likely happening? Thanks for your time.

The rep is correct in trying to remove the battery. Check to see how much free space is left on the phone as well. On older blackberries the messages will if there is not enough room on phone. You can also look into upgrading the operating system on the phone.

SOURCE: Multiple Blackberry problems on the same phone! Please help!

I think the easiest way to resolve as many of these issues is by resetting your blackberry.

Hold down ALT+RIGHT SHIFT(CAP)+DELETE keys - I'm not 100% sure this works on your model but it is soft reset.

Go into Options, then select Security Options, then select General Settings, then activate the BlackBerry menu and select the option to wipe the device - Will reset all your personalised settings to default

SOURCE: Blackberry curve 8310 fatal error during backup

I would connect the device to a PC and update the OS using Desktop Manager. If you recently installed any application, I would uninstall it as this may cause this type of behavior.

Data connection refused


After cancelling the data plan with the wireless service provider, the message Data connection refused appears at the top of the Home screen on the BlackBerry smartphone instead of the branding of the wireless service provider.

This is caused may be you were previously subscribed to a data plan through a wireless service provider, and the BlackBerry smartphone is still configured to attempt to access the data network.

To resolve this issue, you need to turn off the Data Services feature on the BlackBerry smartphone. To perform this, you need to complete the following steps:
  1. From the Home screen, open the Options menu.
  2. Click on Mobile Network or Network.
  3. Set the value of the Data Services field to Off.
  4. Open the menu and select Save.
  5. Return to the Home screen.
  6. Turn the wireless transceiver off and then on again.
To enable (turn on) the wireless transceiver on the BlackBerry device, go to the Home screen and select the Turn Wireless On icon or open Manage Connections and select the wireless connection to be enabled. Once enabled, the icon will display Turn Wireless Off .

To disable (turn off) the wireless transceiver, go to the Home screen and select the Turn Wireless Off icon or open Manage Connections and select the wireless connect to be disabled. Once disabled, the icon will display Turn Wireless On.

I Hope it helped you.

My blackberry is on but I cannot make any calls or receive any calls. It says that the "radio" is turned off. What does that mean?

on the home screen (the one with all the icons - messages, address book, and so on) scroll until you find an icon that says Turn Wireless On. click on this icon to turn the wireless on. if your battery isn't charged enough, it may not allow you to turn the radio on, which means you would need to charge it to allow the wireless radio function to work.

From the Samsung web site:

  2. Press the left soft key for More

  4. Select Connections (6)
  5. Select Wireless Manager (1)

To turn off flight mode, repeat these steps and it should turn your phone back on.

IPAQ wireless connectivity

always start with the simplest answer first so make sure you have WiFi turned on. Think back, have you changed the wireless security on your router? If so you may need to re-enter the network details or add your iPAQ's MAC address to the access control list on the router. In the bottom right-hand corner of the home screen you should have a small HP Wireless symbol, if you tap it you should get your HP Wireless control panel on screen and can 1: turn WiFi on and off, 2: manually enter the WiFi network details and 3: search for WiFi networks in range.

Wireless Connection

Hi Joe, Are you connecting to an Access Point on your home network? Are you connecting to a wireless connection in a cafe or something? Either way, you should be able to connect. All you need to do is tap the small symbol on the bottom right of the main screen (looks like a little staircase) and let it do it's thing. It will bring up another screen (WLan Utility). When it's connected, the arrows to the left of the clock will stop moving. If you want, you can click on the "Setting"button where you can perform more diagnostic functions. You might need to type in a network key, but otherwise, you should be working.
