You can perform a device wipe:

  1. Go to Options > Security Options > General Settings.
  2. Click the track wheel and select Wipe Handheld.
This will clear out all the previous owner's information.

Copy Contacts from Palm Centro to SIM Card


When I migrated from my Palm Centro (best smartphone ever) to my current BlackBerry, I did the following: 1) Export Palm contacts from the Palm Desktop software to CSV (comma separated values or tab-delimited text) format. 2) Import the CSV file to your Google Contacts account. 3) Wirelessly sync Google Contacts to your new phone using the free Google Sync app (link below). 4) Verify data was transferred appropriately.
Google Sync details: http://www.google.com/mobile/sync/
You should be able to follow the same process for your Palm Calendar by exporting your Palm Calendar from the Palm Desktop software to a file (save the exported file to your desktop, or an easy to find location on your computer), then import the Calendar file into a NEW Google Calendar, not your primary calendar (in case there's conflicts or problems, you can delete the secondary Google calendar without losing your primary Google calendar items). Google Sync should allow you to choose more than one Google Calendar to sync with your new phone.

Hx4700 wont work after failed update on ROM v1.10


Try hard reset: pressing and holding the calendar and iTask buttons and doing a soft reset for 2 seconds.

Hard resetting a WM 5 HX 4700 is to press and hold the Contacts and Mail buttons and then doing a soft reset. The boot screen will popup with a message “To perform a clean reset, which will clear all data in memory, press the [Calendar] button”

If that fails, try upgrading to wm 6 or wm 6.1 then downgrading afterwards.

I've upgraded from wm2003SE to wm6.1 alkor rc2.2 rom.

I forgot password to unlock blackberry pearl8100 before use. how I can operate it now? Or how I can fix new password or unlock permanently.


if the password was assigned by a BES server, you could ask the exchange admin to send a new password to the device.

if its a personal phone, and just using BIS (internet based email) then you are out of luck.
you have to misstype the password 10 times and wipe the handset to get back into it. remember though that this sets it to operator defaults and you will lose your saved mail items, and anything not saved to the memory card. ie: all device memory is cleared.
the dumb thing is that text messages are by default saved to the device memory, so you will lose those. and probably contacts if they arent saved to your mail account contact list.

good luck.

Caalendar on my desk top for my blackberry curve 8300


the blackberry will be using the Outlook calendar to update its information. its quite easy to use. What's happening is that the items calendared on the BB are syncing with the "private" calendar under the username (Outlook Today - Username - Calendar), and not the "public" calendar (All Public Folders - John Doe). No items are marked as "private" on the BB.

Install the Blackberry Desktop manager software and after its done go to the Syncronize Button. Once inside look to the left for configuration synchronization click this button it need you to be online to do this as well. inside it will list the many programs that can be used to sync your blackberry make sure you have already setup your outlook so that it can pick up the new settings your creating. once your all done look for the top upermost button on left of BDM ( blackberry desktop manager) and click syncronize to sync your blackberry. now once it is done your BB only needs to be plugged in and it will autosync itself. look in your outlook for new entrys and popup

How do I change an email account?


You will most likely need to wipe the device before setting up your email. This will remove all personal information on the device including mail, contacts, calendars, etc. To do this you should be able to go into the options (usually looks like a wrench) then scroll down and click on security. In the security screen clicking on one of the first options will pop up a menu where one of the options should be wipe handheld. Click on wipe handheld and follow the prompts. Once the device resets you should be able to configure it for your mail.

Bb calendar sync


You may need to clear out the calendar database first on the BlackBerry device, and then try to synch again. Do the following:

1. Connect your BlackBerry via USB.
2. Open Desktop Manager and go to the Backup and Restore option.
3. Select Advanced.
4. The Desktop Manager will show the device databases on the right-hand side.
5. Scroll down and highlight the entry that says Calendar, then click on the Clear button.

Once Desktop Manager has cleared the calendar database try to sync again.

HTC II, Blackberry software driver


Here is the solution for the BBC.

Install instructions from forums:

1) goto hklm>system>versions and change what ever is there to .0.4.2 (The leading . before the 0 needs to be there)
2) Install bbconnect cab file.
3) If you don't get the check boxes at the end of the install (Calendar, notes, etc). Re-run the install (it will remove the 1st instance), I always get it the second time.
4) Wait for Blackberry to finish "setting up device for first use" and let it reboot.
5) On reboot, status will now show the PIN number.
6) Open the Blackberry connect desktop application. (Make sure you have access to your corporate e-mail) If you do you will see "Configure Wireless Device" as active.
7) Plug in the Tilt and wait for Activsync to finish syncing and says "connected".
8) In the BB Connect desktop application hit the "Configure Wireless"
9) When finished unplug Tilt and soft reset.
10) You should be good to go at this point.

- Get BBconnect cab file from: http://www.america.htc.com/mobile/connect/8925/
- Make sure your remove all ActiveSync synchrnonization in Comm Manager -> Active Sync-> Options for your PIM.
- Install cab and run blackberry app
- Go in PIM tab and selct all PIM items you want to sync with

Lost information with no backup file


I'm sorry to say that it is likely completely gone.

I've never heard of a Blackberry recovery service. Perhaps send an email to RIM (Research In Motion) and ask? If your BB came from your company (as opposed to a personal plan) perhaps your IT department can help?

One other thought: If you are using the BB at work and it's hooked up to a Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES) then at least your email, calendar and address data _might_ be stored on the server. Ask your IT department.

How do I fix my Outlook Calendar synchronization problem?


Palm tech fixed my problem. It turned out some items in Outlook Calendar were corrupted, thus preventing a synch with LifeDrive. The fix is to export the Calendar items and import them. This process fixes corruption. After doing that I successfully synchronized Calendar with LifeDrive. More specifically. I moved Calendar items to a different folder, thus emptying the main Calendar folder. I exported the Calendar items in the new folder to a CSV (Windows) file. Then, I imported that CSV (Windows) file into the main Calendar folder. Finally,I did a synch and all worked perfectly.
