You can reset the phone to factory default settings by Start>Accessories>Clear Storage. All programs and data installed will be lost.

    To perform a hard reset (Erase ALL your data) on the t-mobile dash hold the two soft buttons down or dash buttons labeled - - then while holding those buttons hold the power button for 2 seconds you will get a prompt to press 0 to reset. Time is of the essence if you miss it try again.

    This will set it back to factory settings and whatever OS was on there when the phone was brand new will be there. For windows mobile 5 do a search or your comp this

    Blackberry app error 513 problem. please solve it now

    I hope you have it backed up on your pc or it will stay on long enough to backup. The only way to fully fix this problem is to wipe it with a program called JL_Cmnder ( make sure the blackberry desktop software is not running when you dot he wipe after the phone will reboot and give you a error screen with a line through it. Once you have that screen open the blackberry desktop software and it should give you the option to upgrade your software. Once it is done you will have a fully wiped and reloaded OS. Then you can reload your back up. I would selectively reload it and only put the important stuff in like calendar and phone book since there is a possibility that your backup could have saved the database that is giving you the error. Here is a link to another fixya article that has the fix in more detail its the same steps.

    How to reload firmware

    If you are troubleshooting a system or OS problem, you should not consider firmware updates until after exploring more typical troubleshooting steps like file system error checking and anti-virus scanning.

    If you are troubleshooting a system or OS problem, you should not consider firmware updates until after exploring more typical troubleshooting steps like file system error checking and anti-virus scanning.
    try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive

    hope this helps

    Blacberry 8100 turns off when i press any key


    Looking at what you’ve posted, this is more like a battery problem let’s try some troubleshooting;

    1.) Try charging the battery again: Keep the battery out for some time & then reload & check.
    2.) If it's less than a month old see if you can return it, otherwise you can try reloading the OS.
    So if you're willing to try that, do the following.

    First download and install the Desktop Manager from here (4.6 without Media Manager is recommended):

    Next you can use the Backup and Restore feature present in the software to make a backup of all the data on your phone.

    Next download and install the handheld software from here:

    Afterwards try reloading the OS by connecting the device to your computer, open the Desktop Manager, then go into the Application Loader. This will open a wizard that steps you through reloading the OS onto your device. More detailed steps can be found here:

    Please let us know if that was helpful enough.
    Good Luck & Thanks,

    Iwant to hard reset this phone

    A reset of a BlackBerry smartphone does not delete any settings or data.There are two options for performing a reset: a hard reset and a soft reset. A hard reset involves physically removing the battery from the smartphone and then reinserting it. To perform a hard reset, complete the following steps:
    1) Remove the battery cover from the back of the BlackBerry
    2) Remove the battery, and then reinsert it after a few seconds.
    3) Replace the battery cover.
