Question about RIM BlackBerry 7290

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?

Re: won't turn on

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

I have recently purchased a Sony Ericsson Xperia mobile phone. To enable more security I put a pattern sequence into the phone and you are unable to access the phone whilst the pattern sequence is on....

  1. Turn off your Sony Ericsson Xperia X1
  2. Remove the battery and replace it back in
  3. Press and hold down the left and right silver buttons just under the screen
  4. With the stylus, press in the hole on the right side of the battery
  5. After 10 seconds, you will be prompted to press the R key on your slide-out keyboard
  6. If successful press the Space key on your slide-out keyboard to finalize changes

After reset , cannot login to gmail

I guess you have factory reset the phone and it swap out everything.

The G1's much-vaunted first step during the setup is to enter your Google login username and password. Once that happens, the G1 attempts to connect to Google's servers to get your email, contacts, and calendar set up.
Here's the thing, though, if (or when) the G1 cannot connect to the servers, you're done. There is no way to exit out of the Google setup screen, no clear way to reset the phone to bypass it (even in "safe mode"), no way to turn on WiFi.

1 - Have you got credit in the phone voice mail costs to listen to?

2 - Have you turned on (in phone call or mail settings) receive voicemails, most are turned off my Default because its not a free sservice?

Htc 6800 has to be soft rebooted after screen goes dark

Take the phone back and get another one. This is a store queen. Bad manufacture maybe. You should be able to keep the phone on long enough to upgrade system. Also, the numerous reboots might be from a short in the on/off switch. Either way I would get it replaced.

Locked blackberry

just use up all the attempts to unlock the password and the phone will atomatically wipe itself and then you will be able to set up your own password.

Wnt let me make a call out

It sounds like the device was originally activated and worked with a Blackberry enterprise Server, where the administrator had voice calls blocked for the users, so that they did not run up bills - in other words, it was programmed just to do email. If this is the situation, there may not be a solution available to you.

Call your phone carrier and ask them to help - make sure you have the correct "plan"...
