Have you tried a reboot? With the power turned ON, remove the battery, wait a couple of seconds, then replace battery and allow to boot up. This usually solves the problem. If this does not solve the problem I personally recommend calling the phone company which you have your phone on. This may be an upgrade they sent you which may have by accident disabled this feature.

Y cant my blackberry curve 8520 cant play youtube music?


Welcome to Fixya.

If the problem is only with wifi and not 3G/EDGE.
On your BlackBerry, go to:
Options / WiFi connections / Select your Hotspot / WiFi Tools / WiFi diagnostics.
Check the local ip address
Example says**.
Login to your Wireless router, and find the DMZ option.
Add your BlackBerry's IP into the DMZ zone, enable and press save

Can you provide me with the make and model of your router so i can provide you on how to add DMZ on your router.

Thanks for using Fixya

On my blackberry curve 8520 all my pictures have dissapeared. And when I take pictures they don't save on my pictures folder I can't find them please help me

Try your reset button. It is around or under the battery. It is usually a small hole. You might need to use the end of a paper clip. If this fails, see your provider.

After choosing another theme on a blackberry you have to go to options and select save from the list before the change will be effected. Once you select save the changes will then be effected.
