Hi there,


This happens strangely because of the "Content protection" feature of the blackberry.
The problem is seen worse when you see that some caller names are shown and not all. This happens due to the time when this setting is enabled. The entries added after this will be protected

RESOLUTION:

This is for my model blackberry 8830
Goto Options -> Security options -> General Settings

Scroll Down to section starting with "Content Compression"
Look for "Content Protection" It must be "Enabled"
You can disable it at this level (not recommended) to disable the protection for all contents.
Specifically you can disable it for Address Book By setting "No" for "Include Address Book"
This way the address book will be available even if the other contents are protected when a call comes.

Would appreciate logging a message to me if this has saved your life!!! Blackberry 8830 world edition...all calls - smile.gif

I am getting a Packet error in my unlocked Blackberry 8830 World Edition which is one day old. I am unable to send text messages from my phone, but I am able to receive text messages. Please help me...


Hi,

Kindly check your code if it is correct. if not then you can get reliable Unlocking codes from Blackberry unlocking codes with IMEI. They work very professionally and provide excellent customer service with CHEAPER rates on codes.

For your model, you can unlock 8830 World Edition from HERE. I hope it would help getting the right solution for you :)

I would like to have unlock code for Blackberry World Edition 8830?


Depends who you are with.
If you're with Verizon, you have to call Verizon to get it unlocked. Just call Verizon International Technical Support at cb_transparent_l.gifus.gifspace.gifspace.gifarrow.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gif800-711-8300cb_transparent_r.gif.
Customer service will give you the 8 digit code, hang up and follow this procedure:
  • Settings Menu - Options
  • Selected Advanced Options - SIM Card
  • Type MEPD on the keyboard
  • Type MEP, then the ALT button, then 2
  • A prompt comes up "Enter Network MEP Code". Type in the unlock code, then pressed the track wheel.
  • Phone is now unlocked.

Sprint has the 8830 only in black and it is already unlocked by the carrier when it ships.
Also know you can't use the GSM portion of an 8830 in the US or Canada or Mexico. The reason is because the US/CA and Mexico use different bands than the radio provides. The US uses 850 and 1900 MHz. The rest of the world uses 900 and 1800 MHz Bands. Since your phone only has the latter, it has no capability to work in North America.

Or, you can go here and pay for a code:
