    God! Got phone 1 week ago and am hooked and now camera freezes,

  • snoozapoo Jul 04, 2008

    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.

Invalid usim card


unlock phones are so unperdictable...there may not be a fix for this issue..other then getting an AT&T phone....and even if u are able to get it to start working again more then likely u wil continue to have many more isses..mainly becuz of the network changes..for example....using 3g and 3g only...last year the AT&T network was stil using both 2 and 3g network and there was even a few 2g SIM cards being sold in stores...now it almost all 3g..which of course complicates many things...even if u own a 2g AT&T phone a 3g SIM card can be and will be used on that phone....with unlock phones running on the 2g network the issues with not having a SIM card where possible...it was still unstable when wanting to use data services....but voice services were possible...now with everything going 3g...its makes things alot more complicated with AT&T if using a phone without SIM cards...if ur phone has the fuction to beable to shut off 3g networking and run on 2g.(like the apple iphone has) then try that....good luck

What does it mean when it says that the remote party has ended this connection


I work for at&t and have seen this problem before there are 2 things you should try. First, try doing a soft reset by removing the battery from the phone while it is still on, and if that doesn't work you should go to your nearest Corporate Owned retail store and have a rep check it out in the system, it can be fixed usually by removing your data feature and readding it to your account. If this doesn't solve the problem then the rep should contact the tech dept., who has to go into the network and fix it on their end.

Htc mogul keeps freezing


These days they arent making the moguls anymore, and many of them have been reported as having problems. With that said, i was able to bring my phone in to a service store and they were able to order a new one for me free, but since they arent making moguls, they'll actually give you a TOUCH PRO!! much better phone in my opinion. They asked me if i had insurance, i do, but i hope that doesnt affect any of you. moguls ****...=(

It sounds as though the phone is locked. When I had this happen to my Samsung A707, I had to send it back to Samsung to get it reprogrammed. (There are people who have bought the necessary hardware to interface with a mobile phone's OS, but I preferred Samsung themselves.) This was a free service (except for shipping) from Samsung. If you contact Motorola, they might be able to simply reprogram the phone for you.

Tmobile dash Battery or sim?


I tried the new battery and thought it worked and posted it to this site...and, after about 30 hours the same thing happened. It's either the phone or the software, but, since the problem began 15 months after I bought the phone, I tend to think it's the phone, not the battery or the software. I'm going to try to contact HTC since T-Mobile is useless.

Blackjack sim card


Well, no. Your sim card must have taken a big jolt to it in order for it not to work. Simple, you need a new one. Got a Sams club near you? They should be able to give you one for free, att corporate stores charge 25.00. But sorry to say you need a new sim.
