Hi,here is a detailed solution to your problem;
Computer Setup
There are two ways that you can reach the Bluetooth menu on your computer.
Method 1 Double-click on the small Bluetooth icon located in the notification area to the right.
Method 2.A Click on Orb > Control Panel
When the Control Panel window opens locate and double-click the Bluetooth Devices icon.
1. To add your device (phone) click on the Add… button.
2. The Add Bluetooth Device Wizard will open. Add a checkmark to the My device is set up and ready to be found checkbox, click Next
3. The wizard will search for Bluetooth devices in your vicinity.Ensure your phone is already in the pairing mode
4. When the search is complete the wizard will prompt you to select the device you wish to add (in my case it was the BlackBerry 8830), click on the device and click Next.
Note: If your device does not appear, ensure that device is set to be discovered and click on theSearch Again button
5. Some devices require a Passkey in order to be connected to your computer, the Passkey prevents unauthorized users from accessing your devices and/or your computer. In my case Windows chose a Passkey so I entered the provided Passkey into my phone for validation
6. Once Passkey has been validated your Bluetooth device will be installed
7. If you have not installed the appropriate software prior to hardware installation you may be prompted for manufacturer drivers to your device. Insert the disc that was included with your device to install the drivers. Click on the Locate and install driver software button to proceed
8. When installation is complete you should see the message above, click Finish to exit the wizard.
9. When you return to the Bluetooth Devices window you will notice that your device has been added.
Thanks and good luck

My Bold 2 9700 smartphone is showing blank screen with the message reload software 513. Also, the phone is not connecting to the desktop manager eith using the USB cable or through the Bluetooth.

Force a reset by loading version 5 desktop software on your laptop first and then connecting the BlackBerry to it. It may take some time for your pc to recognise that the BlackBerry is plugged in, so be patient!
When it connects, reload the firmware.

My bold 9700 needs to be reset, how do you do that, the screen is all wjite and it says JUM Error 102 reset


Download the Blackberry Desktop Manager from, after downloading run the setup and after completing this step. Connect your blackberry to your computer and open the BDM (Blackberry Desktop Manager). The application would recognize your blackberry, when it shows that your smart phone has been connected, you can now run the software. Make sure your computer is connected to the internet.

Run the software and allow it run. This process may take few hours to complete once done it would automatically reboot your phone and you are good to go.
