Well, after doing more research, I found the answer! You need to buy a new LCD screen for your blackberry. I bought mine on eBay, i.e. http://cgi.ebay.com/Blackberry-8100-Pearl-Original-LCD-Display-Screen-Tools_W0QQitemZ290254550103QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item290254550103&_trkparms=72%3A552%7C39%3A1%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C240%3A1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

Make sure you get a screen with the tools, there are very small hex screws, but my tool sucked and I barely got the screws back in. There is also directions on youtube on how to replace the screen, you will have to take your whole phone apart. But it fixed my problem and my phone has worked great ever since.

I also got a rubber case to put on my phone, I have a TERRIBLE habit of dropping mine (hence why my screen broke to begin with) but I have dropped my phone a few times since, and the rubber really protects it, I got that on amazon.com.

Anyways....good luck! :)

Hi, how can i flash firmware on my huawei phone using USB? any program? and, i cannot find any firmware file on internet or sites...help please :(


Please.
If you have any problem with any electronic device, DON'T try to solve this with a software update.
All updates have the same restrictions.
The system must have enough power to load and install the update (power cord is the best) and all systems should be working without any flaw. As soon as something is wrong, you can't be sure the update is loaded correct in the memory and installed.
Most factories, only release updates when they discover lots of bugs in the software. Providing the firmware comes with more warnings then I already gave.
If Huawei did not release any update, you can't find it anyway.
It proves the software does not cause problems.
If resetting the phone, does not solve the problem, you should contact a certified service centre.

Viber crashes and force stop


This may be an issue with the app itself or a compatibility issue with your phone model.
  1. Check if there is an update available for app: Viber; by going to the Google Play Store and selecting the app from the list of installed apps. If there is an app update, it will be listed.
  2. If the above doesnt work, check if there are any software updates for your phone software by going to settings --> Software info --> check for updates
  3. If the above two do not work, clear all data for the app from settings --> Apps --> Viber --> Clear data

I turned my tomtom xl model:4eto3 and there is a red x flashing on the screen..this goes away when i plug in the usb, however the device is still not functional. i found online that this occurs when there...


Even though you say you have never updated it, now you have no choice but to update it so it can be fixed. Download tomtom home from the tomtom website and install it then connect your device and let it search for updates for the XL . That should fix it for you

Can not receive and send messages


Did you check your message center number (Messaging -> Options -> Settings -> Text msg. -> Message centres)? Delete the one you have there (even if it's correct), enter the correct number and restart your phone. This might help.

As the next step, I would suggest that you try restoring factory settings by typing *#7780# at the stand-by screen. You will be prompted for the security code, enter it. The default code is 12345. This will not erase anything in your phone memory.

If that doesn't help you, proceed with the soft reset. Backup your phone memory using PC Suite, or from your mobile itself. Then, type *#7370# at the stand-by screen. Enter the security code, as above.

Check if you have the latest firmware running on your phone. You can find out how to check for updates, how to update, etc. at this http://www.nokia-asia.com/support/download-software/device-software-update/can-i-update

Samsung i450 totally white screen


Hello Sir, A total white screen is seen usually when the phone's software is corrupted by infection ( Virus, etc ). Or the other reason may be that the phone's software version is outdated and needs to be updated. You have to update the software of the phone which will reset all the info of the phone. If you have the PC Suite, try to retrieve back all stored contacts and data and then update. If you are having difficulty in updating or confused, you can freely take it to a Samsung Service center. They will do it instantly.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.
