    I down loaded a application off the internet and my phone froze. The screen is flashing and the LED is red and the phone will not shut off unless the battery is taken out. I unpluged the phone, took the battery out and still nothing is happening.

I tried to reset my bb by removing my battery and putting it back in, but it wont boot up, just flashes a red light. have tried to connect to pc, wont recognize. have tried resetting several times...


Hopefully you have sync'd the BB before this happened.

1) uninstalled DM4.7 (this also fixed the annoying virtual serial port issue)
2) deleted/uninstall the BB4.2 and BB4.5 versions previously installed onto the computer
3) downloaded and installed DM4.5,
4) installed BB4.5
5) removed the vendor.xml file
6) with the phone disconnected, put in the battery for a split second until the solid red LED shows, then connect the mini-usb cable to the phone and at the same time take the battery back out (this seemed to be the only way to make the PC 'detect' the phone)
7) run Application Loader, which detected my BB4.5, and updated the phone's OS/software/apps
8) near the end ,when the app loader says something like "connecting to phone" or something like that, put the battery -back- into the phone
9) this seemed to initiate the installation of the phone's core modules, a 10 minute process or so
10) after that you get the rotating hourglass thing on the phone's screen, and after waiting about 20 minutes or so, VOILA!!

My sony ericson experia mini has froze.it wont switch on or off.but when i plug the charger in it lights up.but it still froze.


WON'T TURN ON

Hi, when a phone won't turn on and blinks red light, it 's either the battery cell
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 forlonger 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.

go to www.blackberry.com and download the desktop manager for your phone and service provider and reinstall the software. if it is an unlocked phone you need to navigate to the common files/rim and delete the vender file first.

Skype application not opening, stuck on java logo screen


Instead of attempting to load Skype on your phone you may want to consider downloading Nimbuzz. It works just like Skype - is free to use - and seems to have better results.

It combines all your buddies from Skype, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, AIM, Google Talk and more.

To get Nimbuzz simply go to this link and type in your phone number and the program will be sent to your phone.

Nimbuzz, click here: http://tiny.cc/jYC6s

Try this:
1. Unplug BB from PC.
2. Launch the Application Loader like you were going to install something.
3. While the app loader is attempting to connect to the BB, plug the USB cable into the BB.

8700g BB keeps turning on a off without starting correctly


This is called the hourglass of death...You need to reload the apps, but Desktop manager wont let you... You need to trick it into a connection

First make sure the BB is unplugged, then go to Program Files > Common Files >Research In Motion > AppLoader and run loader.exe. Click next, it will say port : COM PORT 1 now is the tricky part you have to plug in the BB and COM 1 will change to PIN: UNKOWN , when this happens you have to quickly click next before it reboots again, then it will ask for pin and now has an connection with the device so you can go ahead and re load all the apps.
