Question about RIM BlackBerry 7290

1 Answer

Won't turn on

I just received my phone today in the mail which I purchased through Ebay. I attempted to turn the phone on, it turned on once, then by accident I turned it off and it will no longer turn back on. My friend has the same phone so I have tried his battery in my phone and it didn't work. However, my battery and his battery both worked in his phone. So basically my phone won't turn on. any advice?

    Just got my blackberry from ebay and will not turn on. Please help.

  • Anonymous May 20, 2008

    My employee gave back the blackberry to me with a "blockerror6..reset" on the display. I tried to download the latest software from T-Mobile for 7290 and now the computer just won't turn on. It has a red-blinking light on the top of the device. The light blinks even when the battery is removed.

Before anything, you need the blackberry desktop manager, also download the newest of the service provider software from this link
Then download a program called Jl_CMDER

Using JL_CMDER, Wipe your handheld after you install it. When thats done, just open bb desktop manager, and you should be prompted to reload the operating system

Why does my samsung s380c phone have no text or voice mail alert signal

Menu > Messages > Msg Settings > General > Message Alerts

By default, this setting is "Off" - which makes absolutely zero sense. Try setting it to "Once", "Every 2 Minutes" or "Every 15 Minutes"

Changing this setting didn't help the no text alert issue with the Samsung S380C I'm dealing with, but it might work for you.

Answering machine turned off but voicemail message displaying on handsets

i have the same problem, looks like it is just a bad set up and taking it back. My guess is I had bluetooth setup at one point to sync my cell with the phone and the phone registered the mail queue of my cell phone and not the mail of the cordless phone unit, so despite clearing it from the cordless phone, it still thinks there is voicemail from when it last accessed my cell phone. Terrible...and I can't find a solution either and won't waste time doing so... returning it.

I purchased item # 308017602001 I received an invoice from ebay but the purchase does not appear in my won list.I tried contacting the above number via search and the reply that appeared was that the item...

with regard to this, it's either the seller closed his/her account or the seller violated some eBay policy that's why the item was removed. if you already paid this item, i suggest that you need to contact eBay and file for the item not receive dispute so that you can get your moneyback.

here are some links where you can find eBay phone numbers:

or you can chat with a live agent:

happy new year! cheers!

Receiver problems

Sorry can't really think what 's going on here!!!!
I can only suggest checking once again that everything is connected up correctly and there is no possible 'overload' function operating that you have not spotted.
Check in manual/handbook or e-mail the problem to the manufacturers customer services e-mail ( see their web-site ).
Good luck with your bold attempts to rectify this annoying problem!!!!!
