    i have ha the same problem for some time now. Then later i get the message : could not start the camera close other applications and try again. I dont have any apps running so this is very confusing. Then the camera will work for two or three days perfectly and then start the cycle over agagin. I would recommend backing your phone up to your computer and then wiping the device and reloading the software. also a software updte might not hurt if you have not already done so. i did enterprise blackberry configurations and hepdesk and this is an issue we had encounntered numerous times. Good luck!!

My sister's blackberry curve 8310 had the same problem with the camera, it would just show up the "could not start the camera. Close other applications and try opening the camera again." message.

In my case the camera hardware was working fine, it just needed more pressure towards the motherboard so it would make more contact. I disassembled the blackberry completely. Then i used some extra foam i had from previous housings, like the one that some blackberries have in their battery cover to do a little bit more pressure on the battery or the one thats around the camera, flash and speaker. I took that foam and cut it into very small pieces and put it around the camera base in the motherboard and around the camera hole in the middle frame. Assembled everything and put some extra foam between the battery cover and the middle frame close around the camera so it would apply pressure. This will void your warranty tho, so yep its easier to just make a backup with desktopmanager and get a new one using your warranty.

Moet puk code invoeren maar weet die niet meer???

Every PUK code is unique so nobody can tell you your PUK number, but i will tell you what you can do!
1) If you still have your packet that your Sim Card came in, you should find your PUK number in there, if you don't have the packet, please read bellow.

2) You must get a phone that is on the same network as your phone and call the networks Customer Care and ask them for your PUK number, they will ask you for your phone number, then they will tell you your PUK number. Once you have done this, you will be able to reset your Pin number so you will be able to go into your phone again.

Tryed five times permenantly locked

Most often it has to be returned to a cellular vendor or manufacturers rep, online services also offer the ability to unlock a "permanently locked phone" but I can't recall a phone that is ever truly permantly locked.

Even "permanently locked" Blackberry's can be reset and unlocked with MML which is RIM device software leaked to the web some time ago and being used with glee to freely flash and unlock GSMBerry's around the world.

If equivalent LG software has been leaked then you can solve this problem with some research and a reliable PC <--> phone interface.

Sim lock

you can try to enter the password (note: attempting to enter the password several times might freeze your phone) SIM lock isn't that bad. you said it won't accept any sim? then that's bad. Get it a look and/or return it.

Cect phone

same thing just happen to your phone carrier and ask can you get another sim card (because registration pops up at start) or it might be outdated (like mine was) so see if the rep can exchange it for free of charge (you will have to go to that store the rep recommends) :)

Can't find the sim card! Help!

sim is the card you were given to work your phone and make calls.
Well it sounds like you need to put your simcard in the phone and it will be working.

If you need assistance you should have a customer rep in store help you.
