Have you tried plugging the SIM card into another phone? And try to retrieve the messages from there? That is if the problem is with the phone lock and not the SIM lock.

Let me know. I would like to help you resolve this issue and retrieve your saved messages back.

One way you can get it back is by re installing it from the app store, or over the last 2 years period did you ever backup your phone to iTunes, if you did it should be safe there.

IPhone 4, It Is High Time You Took Measure to Strengthen


<a>Smartphone and electronicswarranty provider SquareTrade recently shared its smartphone data in a reportcomparing the iPhone 4 with other mobile devices. In the study ,there were fourmonths of data on the iPhone 4, eight months of data on Motorola and HTCAndroid devices, and one year of RIM BlackBerry data. The iPhone 4 led thegroup in reliability, with only 2.1 percent projected to have a non-accidentmalfunction in the first year of ownership.</a> <span>SquareTrade estimates that the iPhone 4'smalfunction rate over a 12-month span was just 2.1%, </span><span>the iPhone 4 is currently outperforming almost everyother smartphone in terms of user satisfaction.

Other smartphone makers wereless reliable, with some 6.3% of Blackberry devices failing in the first 12months, along with a 6.7% failure rate for other smartphones, the SquareTradereport said. The study also found that over 75% of smartphones experience afailure due to accidental damage. Blackberry devices had the lowest first-yearaccident rate, at 6.7%, while the iPhone 4 had the highest, at 9.4%.

BlackBerry Torch 9800 V.S. iPhone 4G: which is better for playing DVD/Video


Though BlackBerry continue to be extremely popular, it's no secret that RIM needed to step up its game and really work on improving and advancing its operating system. And over the past few months, the company has given us previews of a refreshed OS. The RIM BlackBerry Torch 9800 is the first device to ship running BlackBerry OS 6 and will be available starting August 12 for US$199.99 with a two-year contract. The slider phone--a first for RIM--brings together a touchscreen and physical keyboard into a solid, compact design. The new OS brings some much-needed and welcome additions, including a better browser, an enhanced multimedia experience, and improved user interface. Sure, in the grand scheme of things, none of this is new but at least it puts RIM back on track. So we thought it might be a good idea to compare BlackBerry Torch 9800 with the iPhone 4G to find out, which one is a better smartphone. In this article, we have compared some of the key features available on the new BlackBerry smartphone with Apple's iPhone 4G.
dea2965.jpg
Operating System
The Blackberry Torch comes installed with the all-new Blackberry OS 6 that is touch-enabled and seamlessly integrates the old email message interface, contextual menus and contacts with a more modern UI. The new OS also comes with a universal search feature that makes it extremely simple to access all the contents on the handset including the messages, contacts and UI themes from the home screen. While these enhancements definitely make the new Blackberry Torch the best among Blackberry phones, we are not sure if the OS is actually better than iOS 4 on iPhone 4G. As you already know, Apple has introduced close to 100 new features on the latest iOS that still retains the minimalist look and feel of the older versions.
Display:
Though the 3.2" display size of the Blackberry Torch is only marginally lower than the 3.5" screen on iPhone 4, the real difference lies in the screen resolution. The iPhone 4G is equipped with a 960x480 pixel retina display. On the other hand, the Blackberry Torch display is only packed with 360x480 pixels that is not only lower than the iPhone 4G display, but is also significantly lower than the display resolution of most smartphones that have been launched in recent times.
Hardware:
Users who are uncomfortable with the iPhone's virtual keyboard must find the sliding physical QWERTY keyboard on the Blackberry Torch a relief. However, the phone fails to appeal on few other counts. For instance, the Torch is powered by a 624MHz processor that is considerably slower than the 1GHz A4 processors that powers the iPhone 4G. Both the phones offer a 512MB internal memory. Torch comes with only 4GB of onboard storage compared to iPhone 4G's maximum storage capacity of 32GB, but Torch has a microSD memory slot to extend the memory available.
Camera and Multimedia
Both the phones come with a 5-Megapixel camera with flash. Also, unlike the new iPhone, the Torch does not offer the HD video recording functionality. It also doesn't have a front-facing camera to allow users to video chat.
With its’ build-in powerful multimedia player, iPhone 4G supports lots of audio and video formats. Such as: audio formats: AAC, HE-AAC, MP3, MP3 VBR, Audible (2, 3 and 4), Apple Lossless, AIFF and WAV. And video formats: H.264, .M4V, .MP4, .MOV, MPEG-4, and. AVI file format. While, Blackberry installs WMV/Real Video /MP4 Video player and MP3/WMA/WAV/eAAC+ music player. Does it only support these litter formats? I find good software to enhance blackberry’s multimedia function. Nidesoft DVD to Blackberry Converter is an excellent Blackberry Video tool which could convert DVD to Blackberry video and music: 3GP, MP4, MP3, etc. And Nidesoft Blackberry Video Converter is powerful and wonderful Movie Converter for Blackberry series mobile phone. It could convert video and audio files to your Blackberry movie and music format. The source files formats that could be converted by this Blackberry Video Converter include: MPEG, VOB, MP4, M4V, WMV, ASF, AVI, 3GP, FLV, YouTube, etc. Additionally, you could use this Blackberry Converter to convert MOD to Blackberry video. I think these are good assistant for Blackberry users to enjoy movie and music at any where at any time. In addition, it also has converter for iPhone 4G user, if you have interesting, you may visit http://www.nidesoft.com to get more information about it.

So which phone is the better one? That is a difficult question to answer. Blackberry OS 6 is very impressive and was truly built from the ground up with touchscreen support. Also, Sure Press technology does not appear on the Torch 9800, which is surely a relief to those who hated the Storm series. At the same time however, if you are okay with using a bumper case with the iPhone 4G to prevent any signal issues, the sharp screen and HD video ability is a major plus. Both of these phones will do what you need to. The one you prefer will probably just have to come down to which manufacturer you like more, if you need video calling, and if you prefer a physical keyboard.

Nokia N900 vs iphone 3G vs BlackBerry Tour, which is more powerful?


Most friends often focus the mobile phone will find a rule that at the end of every season, each big firms will have come up with their own masters, for the New Year gift, of course, the real purpose for the market began to do next year. And the most recent consumer can call the brunt of joy, when the N900 Nokia. As a new phone using Maemo 5 system platform, Nokia N900 listing bespeak the mobile operating system war will start in the future. This is why Nokia will launch new touch system after Nokia has just launched S60 V5 system for only one year. Now let’s have a close look at the new Nokia N900: What are the new Nokia main features compare with the iPhone 3G S and Blackberry Tour?
[img]http://www.nidesoft.com/forum/blackberry-vs-nokia/nokiaiphoneblackberry.gif[/img]
Display
iPhone 3GS: Dimensions (115.5 x 62.1 x 12.3 mm), large (3.5 inch diagonal), weight(135g), high-resolution (480x320 screen), multi-touch display;
Blackberry Tour: Dimensions (112 x 62 x 14.2 mm), 480 x 360 pixels, weight (130g), Full QWERTY keyboard, Trackball navigation, Wallpapers;
Nokia N900: Dimensions (110.9 × 59.8 × 18 mm), weight (181g), full qwerty sliding keyboard ,WVGA (800x480) touch display, not support multi-touch display;
Conclusion: Tie. Each phone has its own unique design essence and it is more of a personal preference which one you would like. However, the N900 is the largest size and the heaviest phone.

Memory capacity
iPhone 3GS : There are two models with 32GB and 16GB capacity of internal memory. No Card Slot. RAM capacity is 256 MB.
Blackberry Tour: It has an internal memory of 256MB and External Micro SD cards are supported up to 8 GB.
Nokia N900: It has an internal memory of 32GB and is expandable with a 16GB MicroSD Card to make it a total of 48GB. The RAM and ROM capacity respectively is 256 MB and 768MB.
Conclusion: The iPhone has enough memory to store all your favorite music and videos but N900 even exceeds that limit with its whopping total of 48GB. And the capacity of Blackberry, in contrast, is smallest.

Application Availability
iPhone 3GS : No comparison is complete without a mention of Apple’s App Store. iPhone is the easiest platform to develop application for. This is why there are thousands of developers developing millions of apps for the iPhone.
Blackberry Tour: Developers of Blackberry Applications use outdated tools that don’t give them enough access to the Core APIs on Blackberry Handsets. But there are some apps that are very useful to the Blackberry users.
Nokia N900: The N900 comes with preloaded Ovi Store to easily pick up any apps. You can also pick up any programs from wherever you like online unlike iPhone which lets you choose apps only from Apple’s own app store. And what I do know is that the Maemo community is very active.
Conclusion: Though the Apple is not open like Nokia but still the amount of apps that are available for iPhone makes it a winner in this category.

Multimedia
iPhone 3GS: It has a 3.15 MP Camera with autofocus, touchfocus and geotagging facility. It can capture videos at VGA resolution 30 fps, although there is no flash. It has build-in multimedia player and supports: H.264 video, up to 1.5 Mbps, Low-Complexity version of the H.264 Baseline Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48 kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats. There’s no doubt that iPhone is wonderful music mobile phone.
Blackberry Tour: It has a 3.15 MP Camera with autofocus, touchfocus and it has LED flash. Another, it also has media player: MP3 / WMA / AAC+ and video player: MPEG4 / WMV / H.263 / H.264, etc.
Nokia N900: It features a 5 MP camera labeled with Carl Zeiss lens. It also packs dual LEDs flash, but don’t expect miracles when taking photos in dark restaurants and bars. By default, the N900 takes 3.5mp photos. And its Video capture is done in 848x480 pixels (3.4Mbps, 22.3fps, AAC mono 48 kHz). The Nokia N900 is capable of playing DVD-resolution videos. The real issue is to find digital video files that have been properly sized and compressed to take advantage of the device's screen and decoding capabilities. Video playback formats: Video playback file formats: .mp4, .avi, .wmv, .3gp; codecs: H.264, MPEG-4, Xvid, WMV, and H.263. Video streaming formats: H.264, MPEG-4, Xvid, WMV, H.263 in .avi, .mp4, .wmv, .asf and .3gp containers.
What if you have large music or video collections you want to carry around with you on your mobile?

Step 2: Click the "profile" button and select the format for your player.
Step 3: Click the "convert" button. Please wait before the conversion succeeds!
Now, I could enjoy the videos with any other player.

Conclusion: The Nokia N900’s camera beats all others with its feature as well as image quality. But as for media player, Nokia N900 and iPhone 3GS are both good!

Overall
iPhone 3GS : The iPhone is a blockbuster phone that has won many hearts. After some of refinements the iPhone 3GS model seems to remove all the flaws that it had in the previous models. Now it stands as an irresistible champion.
Blackberry Tour: Blackberry is always the first choice for the business users and the Blackberry Bold is the best BlackBerry phone ever made. It is also an unquestionable choice for a corporate person.
Nokia N900: The Nokia N900 is currently the best smartphone that Nokia has ever produced and I'll call it a smartphone even if the company brands it as an "Internet tablet with phone functions". As a voice device, the Nokia N900 does very well, and as a communication tool, it is very good too. With Maemo, Nokia's smartphone future seems a lot brighter than it is with Symbian OS, but despite the obvious potential, the number (and quality) of applications is still uncertain right now.
Conclusion: At the end of the day all of the third phones are tough competitors and it is hard to decide which one is the best. None of the phones can be neglected for their shortcomings because they have some features that outdoes others in some respects. But, the N900 faces stiff competition from the iPhone 3GS and the Blackberry Tour, just to name the obvious ones. It might have a "features" advantage, which is great, but I wonder if "technical coolness" will convert into actual sales. My personal take is that the 3GS will still be the most desired phone, with the Blackberry fast becoming second in line. If Nokia wants to create a great smartphone eco-system, it needs to have a strong user base (in that space), and to achieve that, it needs sexier phone designs, there's no way around it. At last, I wish Nokia will have good sales.

Hello, I have a question about my blackberry. I have At&T and i had a LG VU. Last night i went out and bought a blackberry 8820 Smartphone from a friend of mine. I put my sim card in and everything...


You need to call AT&T and ask them to change your data and text plan to a Blackberry plan. You can almost interchange any microsoft smartphone and pda but not between iphone, blackberry and Windows Mobile device. Hope this helps.

Which mobile phone is best and better in between Apple iphone and Blackberry Bold ?


I love the iPhone for it's useful apps, but the downfall is they are very very delicate. If you drop it once it may break and require repair.
The Blackberry Bold is a beautiful phone and very functional for business and personal use. Nothing novelty about the blackberry. Just a straight up good phone with a very strong build.
The Blackberry you can use without a blackberry account and just add internet for surfing. If you want more you have to have a blackberry enterprise acount which is made more for business.
one last word about the iphone, if you are into the novelty factor you can get a zillion apps for this phone both free and paid.
