Hi, reset phone after resetting phone if nothing happens,Go to blackberry sites for update.

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.

Thanks.

How to turn Bluetooth on and off on a BlackBerry Tour


The BlackBerry Tour comes with Bluetooth capability, but in order to connect to a Bluetooth device, you have to enable the Bluetooth functionality. When you're not using a Bluetooth connection, disable Bluetooth to avoid other devices from connecting to your BlackBerry.

- To turn Bluetooth on:

From the main home screen, press the BlackBerry button (to the left of the trackball) to go to your Home folder. Scroll down until you see the antenna icon for Manage Connections and click on it. A pop up list will appear; find Bluetooth on the list and click it to put a check in the box next to it. "On" will appear next to Bluetooth, and the Bluetooth icon will be displayed in the upper right corner of the screen. Your BlackBerry is now in Bluetooth mode, where it can connect and pair with other Bluetooth-capable devices.

Bluetooth can also be turned on from the Options folder, under the Home folder. Select Bluetooth from the list and when the screen comes up saying "Bluetooth: Disabled," press the BlackBerry button and then select Enable Bluetooth. If you've previously paired your Tour with other Bluetooth devices, the list of those devices will appear.

- To turn Bluetooth off:

From the home screen, press the BlackBerry button. Scroll down to Manage Connections and select it. In the list that appears, click Bluetooth to uncheck it and disable Bluetooth functionality.

You can also turn Bluetooth off by clicking Options in the Home folder, selecting Bluetooth from the list of options, then pressing the BlackBerry button and choosing Disable Bluetooth.

How can i set the em227pk bluetooth up for pairing? plz help.


In order to pair a BlackBerry smartphone with a Bluetooth enabled device (e.g. a Bluetooth enabled headset), the Bluetooth enabled device must be in pairing mode. Most Bluetooth enabled devices are not set to pairing mode by default. Refer to your Bluetooth enabled device manual for instructions on how to set the Bluetooth enabled device to pairing mode.
To pair the BlackBerry smartphone with a Bluetooth enabled device, complete the following steps:
1) On the BlackBerry smartphone, click Options > Bluetooth. If you cannot find the Bluetooth option,
2) Open the menu and select Add Device. The Select Device list appears and lists Bluetooth enabled devices that are in range and available to be paired.
Note: Only BlackBerry smartphones enabled with Bluetooth technology that are in range and in pairing mode will appear in the available Select Device list.
3) Select the Bluetooth enabled device with which you are pairing. The Enter passkey dialog appears.
4) Type the passkey to authenticate the Bluetooth enabled device. Most Bluetooth enabled devices contain a hard coded passkey. See your Bluetooth enabled device manual for the passkey.
Note: 0000 is the universal passkey for pairing any Bluetooth enabled device with a BlackBerry smartphone.
Note: Once a Bluetooth enabled device is paired, it appears in the Paired Devices list. The Bluetooth enabled device will no longer appear in the Select Device list.
Bluetooth devices are manufacturer specific. Please refer user manual for instructions on how to pair with other devices.

Bluetooth doesn't reconnect to my Jaguar handsfree


This might solve your problem; go on your blackberry and check in your bluetooth device list for your Jag's handsfree once you've found check the properties of it make sure it says "yes" under the trusted option now if that doesn't work then you need to check in the same properties if "encryption" is enabled if not enable it and you might not have to manully enter it all the time now if it already says enable you could try to disable encryption just to see if that helps. If you have any more questions or more information on this situation just post back and I will gladly help you some more.

Cheers,
