Hi,first reset the phone,
There are three main types of Reset that apply to the Blackberry. These are listed in order below. Instructions for Blackberry Pearl are slightly different - see bottom section of the Tip.

1) Soft Reset - simply press the ALT+RIGHT SHIFT(CAP)+DELETE keys.

This reset stops all applications that are running on the Blackberry and will help if you are having problems connecting the device to computer. This reset will not erase any information from your device.

2) Double Soft Reset - this reset is almost equivalent to a full hard reset. First perform a Soft Reset as outlined in Step 1.

As soon as the screen is no longer black - repeat the steps once again exactly as before.

This takes you to another screen showing an hour glass. Allow the device to reset. This helps if the device has suffered a more serious error. Be aware you may loose some information from your device. A backup is advised prior to proceeding if at all possible.

3) Hard Reset - this is the full blown reset and will fully reset the device to help resolve critical errors with software or hardware. Again back up important information before proceeding if possible.

Note: For RIM models 850, 857, 950, or 957, you must insert the end of a paperclip or similar blunt object into a small recessed hole on the back of the unit and depress the switch inside. The device will reboot and be hard reset.

Other Models: With the device turned on - remove the battery for 30 seconds or more. Now replace the battery. The device will reboot and be hard reset.

Blackberry Pearl: To reset to factory defaults enter 'Options' from the main menu. Scroll to Security Options and press the trackball. Choose 'General Settings'.

Press the left soft key, then scroll to "Wipe Handheld" with the trackball and press the trackball. To initiate the factory reset, your phones security code may be required in order for the process to complete. Your phone will now be restored to its original settings on leaving the factory.

A hard reset can be achieved with the Pearl in the same way as outlined at Step 3 by removing the battery.

Be aware that resets such as these may erase data, such as contacts, ring tones, pictures, text messages and stored Internet files and emails. Make sure to back up important information beforehand if at all possible. You can obtain software to back up the device to your computer directly from Blackberry right here.

Hope this Tip helps. If so please do leave a vote for the solution.

WON'T TURN ON




Hi,when a phone does not come on, it is either the battery of the phone is dead,
might need to be charge or replaced with another battery.

you can use another battery to test if it is the battery the fault.

The other thing to check is if the phone memory is weak and may need to be restored
back the phone memory.
will need to be flashed.
if too weak to power up the phone all application you downloaded on the phone has
VIRUS and has affected the phone memory.


First Charge the battery for longer hours before using another battery to confirm
if the battery cell is the problem.

If not battery, in think you will have to flash the phone memory for it to come back to life.
You can use the link below to know about how to flash the phone.

Every time i turn on my blackberry 8320 it says battery drained.


It is the main board. If you have phone insurance through your carrier they should be able to replace it. Otherwise there is not much you can do aside from purchase of a new phone.

I caint see the screen on my blackberry tour


You have to remove the battery when mobile is turned ON and wait for few seconds re insert the battery then check.

Still if you have the same issue Hold down the ALT key, and press right-hand CAP key press the DELETE key aswell together which reboots the device.

If problem still exsists connect your blackberry to computer check wheather its recognising the device If "yes" you need to take a back up of your hands set and re-install the operating system of your Blackberry.

To perform a clean installation of the BlackBerry Device Software using Blackberry Desktop Manager 4.5 to 5.0, perform the following steps:- 1) Open BlackBerry Desktop Manager. 2) Click Help. 3) Select About Desktop Manager. 4) Click the Device Software tab. 5) Verify that the BlackBerry Device Software displayed is the latest version currently available from the wireless service provider.

Placed password shut phone down


Which model are you wanting help with - You mention both the 8300 and 8900?

In any case - The 8300 doesn't have a reset button? On the 8900 it may be behind the battery cover if so you will need a paper clip.

The following advice is general to Blackberry's and will help clear the memory and reset issues - These are both the soft and hard reset.

You can do a soft reset using Left Alt, Right Shift and Delete - Hold down keys simultaneously for a couple of seconds.

If that doesn't work - Try power down, remove the battery for a minute or so, re-insert battery and then power back on.

Let me know how you get on with the above - If they don't work - Can you also clarify which model no as I have given you generic advice for both models...
