Question about Nokia N81 Smartphone

1 Answer

The phone is not responding to my input

When I press the scroll key, it just goes off to another menu entirely, instance, select contacts and try to scroll down and it changes to another sub menu, maybe messaging. Scroll to menu and it tries to delete the sub-menus and reports back that it was unable. In general, the phone is acting real wacky. I cannot even hook up to d web cos it goes off immediately I try to access it. I don't think d prob is wit the scroll key.

Any answers? Help someone..........

Try removing the battery for 10 seconds and then put the battery back into the phone and power the phone back on. If that did not help.....Have you had the phone less than a year brand new? If so, it would be covered by the manufacturer warranty (Nokia in this case) for 1 year but only for phone hardware and software malfunctions. If your phone has been exposed to water, you can check by removing the battery cover and battery and looking for a sticker that should be all pink or red. I would say first of all figure out what could have caused your phone to start doing this. The problem your phone is having does not sound like a problem that can be fixed by changing any settings. It sounds like your phone may need to be sent to a repair center. You should talk to your phone carrier about the problem you are having and ask them what they can do for you about repairing your phone. If you have insurance on your phone you could use that also but be sure to read the fine print because phone insurance has limitations. I hope this helped you.

Wipe it to start over. Sometimes when you change or add something like a THEME or a download it HOSES the BB completely. So delete what was on there and don't download a theme or any other wacky add-on.

To Sanitize or Clear out all the information in a Blackberry Device
Scroll to select the OPTIONS icon and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select SECURITY and press [Trackwheel] to select.
On some units you may have to select GENERAL SETTINGS before getting the next menu.
Press [Trackwheel] again to access the Menu screen for the security.
Scroll to select the WIPE HANDHELD and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll UP to select CONTINUE and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Type blackberry on keyboard to confirm the action press <-| key.
System responds with ERASING INFORMATION.

How do I stop my Blackberry going on to standby

I don't know what you are referring to when you say STANDBY option, so I'll include what I know about the password option. Maybe you mean SECURITY TIMEOUT, or maybe your version calls it standby time..

Setting up a password for the device:
Scroll to select the SETTINGS/OPTIONS icon and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select SECURITY OPTIONS and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select GENERAL SETTINGS before getting the next menu.
Scroll to select the PASSWORD It should say ENABLED.
For most people the security timeout is set to 1 HOUR.

Setting up the time it takes for the BB to require a password:
Select the line you need to change, and Press [Trackwheel] to access the Menu
CHANGE OPTION should be highlighted Press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll UP to select ENABLED and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select the SAVE and press [Trackwheel] to select.
System responds with NEW PASSWORD: input your new password press the <-| key.
System will ask you to re-enter your NEW PASSWORD: input your new password again and press <-| key.
