Question about AT&T Blackberry Curve 8300 Smartphone

1 Answer

When I use my phone on my curve 8300 it shuts down.

The only way to get it back is to take out the battery or plug it into the charger. The Curve never blanks out when in the charger.

It it perhaps the battery. The battery is about 3 years old.

Try a new battery if that does not work then try reflashing the OS on the phone.

2. You need to install a BlackBerry OS file that is specific to your device. The original version, as supplied by the carrier, is the safe choice, but you can use any model specific version. This is not supplied on your BlackBerry CD, Ref: 3 links to BlackBerry's download pages.

3. Once the OS has been installed, you have to prepare it for the device.

Select Start / Computer and select the Drive C: Icon.

Open Program Files / Common Files / Research in Motion / AppLoader.

Navigate to the bottom and delete the file Vendor.XML file.

4. You are now ready to restore your device. Verify that BlackBerry Desktop Manager is NOT running. Plug the device directly into the computer's USB port.

We are about to venture into the bowls of the beast. Windows is not suitable for this job, we are going to invoke the Command line interface with an option switch.
Windows XP: Start / Run... / Command

Windows Vista: Start / Command (type this into 'start search')

Chances are either the battery is fried. or the OS is nuked.

Take the battery out, plug the phone in and try to turn it on. If it powers on just fine, it's the battery. If not. The OS is nuked and needs to be replaced.

Placed password shut phone down


Which model are you wanting help with - You mention both the 8300 and 8900?

In any case - The 8300 doesn't have a reset button? On the 8900 it may be behind the battery cover if so you will need a paper clip.

The following advice is general to Blackberry's and will help clear the memory and reset issues - These are both the soft and hard reset.

You can do a soft reset using Left Alt, Right Shift and Delete - Hold down keys simultaneously for a couple of seconds.

If that doesn't work - Try power down, remove the battery for a minute or so, re-insert battery and then power back on.

Let me know how you get on with the above - If they don't work - Can you also clarify which model no as I have given you generic advice for both models...

Black berry that wont turn on


Remove the back of the phone. Pop out the battery. let it sit for about 10 minutes. Replace the Battery & the back cover of the phone. If the phone starts up, then let it start and immediately plug in the charger and let it charge for 1/2 hour before you touch it again.
If the phone does not start up then do not try to start it just immediately plug in the charger and let it charge for 1/2 hour before you touch it again.

8300 will not charge


My charge port is broken out of my 8300. I bought an extra battery and an external charger off of eBay for a little of nothing. You can also by a pod that will charge your Blackberry. The two gold tabs on the back of your device beneath the battery is an external charger connection for a desktop pod.
