This problem could be due to the lack of GPRS service. GPRS stands for General Packet Radio Service, and it's what allows your device to access data. The first thing you should do is perform a soft reset. If that doesn't work, perform a hard reset. After both resets, check your wireless antenna signal strength. The antenna should show GPRS. If you can still make phone calls and access the Web, then your GSM service is still available. Try sending yourself an email . Does it work? If it doesn't, call your BlackBerry provider. Sometimes, your service could be delayed due to a billing problem or to downtime on the network.

Blackberry 8520 won't intialise


I run a unlocking service and unlocking does not "damage" the phone in anyway, so I assure you it wasnt the unlocking that has confiused your phone.

Things you need to check

take out the sim, does the phone boot?

But you have a bigger problem, the 8520 does not have 3G so it cant never connect to 3 as you need a 3G enabled phone.

My nokia E63 won't send text messages. It will receive them, make calls and receive calls.


First check all the message setting i.e 1.Center number should start with prefix +........Character support it should be "Full" and the "Message sent as" should be "Text".If all these settings are correct the only way to solve is to contact / call the particular customer care.Good luck.

I bought a blackberry storm 9530 on amazone. Its unlocked because i am in netherlands antilles and can make and receive calls and text messages but i cant browse the web or use BBM. I think Verizon has it...


Seems like your phone network is locked which needs to be unlocked. This can be done through Blackberry unlocking codes with IMEI. You can unlock your Blackberry Storm 9530 from them since they provide trusted and affordable codes to all their clients. i hope this would help.

Trying to convert,if possible, nextel blackberry 8530i to boostmobile


watch this video


Boost Mobile has the cheapest (and slowest) data service around, and the Nextel Branded BlackBerry is the only smart phone that works with Boost's iDEN service.

The old 7520 and 7100i BlackBerry's can be purchased for around 50 dollars, and are very usable smart phones.

The newer BlackBerry 8350i is one of the best blackberry smartphones available. However on Nextel it costs more then 120 dollars a month for unlimited everything and on Boost mobile you can get unlimited service for $50 a month.


The difference however is that Boost mobile does not offer a Blackberry Data Plan and Nextel does. So if you want to browse the web, send emails, and be able to download apps, you have to convert your Nextel Blackberry to Boost Mobile.

The email works a little differently in that you can set up your yahoo or aol mail to forward to your Blackberry by using the email address

yournumber@myboostmobile.com as the forward to email address.


What are the differences of the Nextel Blackberry models?




Besides the obvious difference which is the design of the phone and the applications and memory available, the 8350i runs BlackBerry OS version 4.6 whereas the 7520 and 7100i run version 4.1. The older OS does not support as many apps and features.


To sum it up Boost Mobile Phones aren't good and Blackberry's are. It's really that simple.


Does Boost support the BlackBerry?


Not officially. Boost sells their Starter kit to "give new life to a previously used Boost or Nextel phone", but they make no specific mention of its compatibility with the BlackBerry. Using a BlackBerry on Boost is consistent with their terms and conditions, but you won't get any help from Boost for configuring your BlackBerry.


Which features work?


Voice service and basic data service work.

3rd-party apps work, including apps for web browsing, email, GPS, and instant messaging.


Over-the-air installation of apps using the BlackBerry Browser will work if youfollow the how-to.

Text messaging will work if you follow the how-to.

Apps can also be installed using the Desktop Manager software on your PC.

Which Boost plans included data service?

All Boost plans include basic data service

My mms messages do not send on my curve 8520, they try to send for a long time then show it failed to send, i tried sending to myself and that did not work


This could only be caused by a couple of things. The message center number in the handset may not be correct, which will cause the messages to fail. The other possibility is that the feature is not active on your account with your wireless provider. What you need to do is test a couple of things. See if you can send a text/sms message to yourself, in doing this you can verify that you can not only send, but receive text/sms messages. If you cannot send, or receive text/sms messages, then that verifies that the message/service center number is off, and will need to be corrected. If that works, and you can receive text/sms messages, then your service center number is correct, and you will move to the next troubleshooting step, which is to test your web browser. If you cannot launch the web browser on your handset, then this is an issue, because the MMS service requires that you have both SMS, and web browser service to send a MMS message. If you can access the internet and you have the ability to send/receive text/sms, then you need to call your service provider as the issue may be with their service.

Blackberry curve 8330's blocking mobile network


Sounds like you're in a dead zone. If not then ...

Check in the upper left corner... IF:

1x = you are not connected to any data at all - No emails, text, internet will work send/receive.

1xev= you're connected to data but not blackberry usually the same as above though sometimes you might get lucky and receive only text/pix messages.

1X= Phone calls only. Usually no data (email, text, web, etc)

1XEV = everything is connected and you should be working fine.



If you have 1XEV (upper case and lower case matter ALOT...everything should always be UPPERCASE) and you're still having that problem then go to:

options> advanced options> host routing table

In the host routing table click the button to the left of the roll ball (called the blackberry button) and click on "Register now" and just leave the phone alone for a minute so it can register all your service books again. Then try the web again.


If all else fails pullthe battery and try again ..> Still no good? Call your carrier.

Hope this helps

Wnt let me make a call out


It sounds like the device was originally activated and worked with a Blackberry enterprise Server, where the administrator had voice calls blocked for the users, so that they did not run up bills - in other words, it was programmed just to do email. If this is the situation, there may not be a solution available to you.

Call your phone carrier and ask them to help - make sure you have the correct "plan"...
