BlackBerry Smartphones 8830 world edition - problems with SMS text messaging

Every now and then my phone randomly deletes my journal of history and appeal of texting. The only thing left in my folder of messages are emails I've sent or received. I can still send text messages, but I can't receive them, and then all of a sudden everything will be back to normal. I checked my media card and I still have 1.7 GB free space again so I don't think that it is a memory problem.

Anyone know what is happening?

The items that you have saved on the media card do not count for the memory of the device. You can check the device memory by going to Options | Status and take note of your free file number. Then reset the unit by removing the battery and 1 min and replace it and let the device restarts. After that he did check and see if your free file number has increased.

Also do you have a lot of third party applications on the device that you don't need? If so you can do in the Options | Advanced options | Applications and delete those you no longer need.

  • Unlocking blackBerry Smartphones 8830 World Edition GSM and code provider


    I'm a guy unsavvy tech and have an 8830 World Edition phone. Bought this from Auntie Indicom (Vendor ID: 269), a CDMA operator which also provided a GSM SIM for only international roaming. Last month, number portability Mobile came into India, and I went to a GSM provider, Vodafone India. After the transfer of numbers, simply inserted the new Vodafone SIM and the phone and Blackberry services are working well with the new operator. Two questions:

    1. from the Options-> advanced-> SIM card Options, after typing MEPD, I see:

    ID: a large number


    Disabled SIM

    Active network

    Network subset disabled

    Service Provider disabled

    People with reduced mobility

    Does this mean that my Blackberry is locked? If Yes, is it blocked by Vodafone? Given that I have moved the Auntie service provider Vodafone and does not seem to wear the same number on the same phone, aunt locked the phone.

    2. type Alt-EACE, I always see the Vendor ID 269 (Auntie). See also the logo of Auntie initially upwards. Is it possible that I can change the ID of the seller or at least stop getting the start screen for the old vendor? This ID Vendo has something to do with the above-mentioned lock?

    Would be very grateful if some kind soul illuminates.

    Thank you



    There must be something different on a BB WE that allows the use of other SIMs, though always stuck at home carrier. Odd, but your experience proves the theory. I seriously doubt that release will make a difference, but certainly to try I guess.

    I don't know why your BB is as you describe... but, I want to propose the following steps, in order, even if they seem redundant to what you have already tried. However, you want to be careful here. I don't know how you originally got your BB running services on your current operator. All BB services are controlled by the Service books. If a carrier does not natively support a BB model on their network, there are a few things that need to be taken to get these SBs on than non-native BB. If only it had to do, don't go here... you could just wipe out all your services level of BB. But if none of these tricks are required (which would mean that your carrier supports natively your BB model), then you should be safe to go ahead.

    Steps 1 and 2 each should translate into a message to your BB to come:

    (1) registry HRT

    • KB00510 How to register a BlackBerry smartphone with wireless network

    (2) Service reference books

    • KB02830 Send the directories for the BlackBerry Internet Service

    (3) restart to take batt

    • Each time a random strange behavior or slow creeps, the first thing to do is a battery pop reboot. With power ON, remove the hood back and remove the battery. Wait a minute, then replace the battery and cover. Power on and wait patiently through the long reboot - about 5 minutes. See if things return to functioning. Like all computing devices, BB suffers from memory leaks and others... with a hard reboot is the best remedy.

    Maybe it will make a difference. I really do not know about you, to be honest. It's a tricky business, and you can well serve just as well by getting a new BB you get from your carrier... which by the way, you would have at least that the formal support at your disposal channel.

    Good luck!

    First of all, there is no "official" AutoLoaders Automatic chargers are 100% unofficial methodology... but (with the exception of the ' leaks') they are built from the officially released OS components. Therefore, as long as the creator of the autoloader is a) reliable and b) is not an error (be gentle, because they are human too), then the autoloader should be quite safe.

    Here's a great archive (IMHO) of automatic Chargers:

    The link at the top of the first post of this thread is a great repository of Autoloaders... and the source is one that I consider to be very reliable.

    Good luck!

  • BlackBerry smartphones is this a problem with my Bold 9700 flash memory?

    A few annoying problems recently with my Bold 9700.

    First, my Blackberry has suddenly started to massively delete recent appointments in my calendar, which will attempt to remove them from my Outlook calendar when I synchronize the device to my laptop.  This has not happened before, and I checked to make sure that the schedule is set to never delete nominations, and it is set correctly.

    Second, my Blackberry App World application (both on the device and online) does not display one of my installed applications, except one, but they are all still on the device and working properly.  I'm 18 apps installed from BB App World, beyond the pre-installed applications on the device, which are less than 10 MB in total size.

    The reason I think that the problem could be linked to the internal flash memory is that whenever I want to install an application, I usually get a message indicating there is enough memory and I have to uninstall some other applications to free up space.  When I checked my memory earlier, he said that had less than 1 MB.  I restarted the machine and now it tells me there is 12.2 MB of available space, which always seems incredibly low for me since I installed only about 10 MB of my own applications.  So, I delete the file all attachments of the device and do not keep e-mail on the device beyond 30 days, and all media is stored on flash cards, not in the device memory.

    The most important question I have to solve is how to prevent the device to delete data from calendar (it keeps recurring appointments, but has been deleted and everything before about two weeks ago).


    It's an automatic protection mechanism with BBs. During the AppMemory (not the device, no media memory card memory) get low, the BB must start deleting things to preserve its ability to operate. Unfortunately, he really can't go after data... it can't really go after installed applications. Here are some tips to use:

    • KB02843 What is the function of low memory manager on the BlackBerry smartphone
    • KB14320 How to maximize space and power battery life on the BlackBerry smartphone
      • KB14213 Call logs, SMS text and email messages are deleted from the BlackBerry smartphone
    • KB10183 E-mail messages are removed from the BlackBerry device until the messages expire

    In addition, it is always important to correctly close applications when you are finished with them. Using the back or on the red button won't do that - those leave the app to decide what to do... and some let themselves memory-resident, consumes resources on your BB, slowing down the overall performance. On the contrary, to close an application, tap on and select 'Close' or 'Quit'... which force the application to be closed, freeing resources for your new use it consumed. Some applications will always be running (in general - BBMessenger, browser, homescreen, phone and Messages)... but, you should always close them properly - especially the browser... If we leave on a web page, it will not consume only additional resources, but the power of the battery as well.

    Now, AppMemory is not just for the apps... the real BB operating system is here as well. Depending on the options you have included, which might be things bloating as well.

    Good luck!

  • Problem with incoming text messages from like white

    This just started happening a few hours ago.  A friend send me texts, and they began to come as a Virgin without transmitting messages. I turned my phone off and restarted it but no luck. I get a text the two texts that I see. This has happened to anyone using a Moto Droid?

  • BlackBerry smartphones, that I can't get my text message notifier change any advice?

    I went in the sounds of change and menu alerts then sounds for the profile selected and changed the notifier of text message. Every other Notifier ringtone and message I changed it (i.e. e-mail) worked well. It is not a huge problem just annoying. Any advice?

    As with some of the other posts, I read that it was a matter of familiarization with the phone. There are two reasons would not work the tone of the text message: 1) number format seems better work when entered 17031234567 rather then have dashes or leaving one offshore. (2) If a person has a personalized ring tone message should be changed, and because I had that each text that I received from someone with a custom ring tone had a tone preset text. I hope this helps someone who had the same problem.

  • BlackBerry smartphones, I'm having problems with the download of Facebook AGAIN! (need desperate help!)

    OK, so I deleted Facebook yesterday with the idea to reinstall later. He played a few times to the top and said: I can't reinstall it because I can restore it as it is in my archives. Whenever I try to restore it, he'd go to reinstall... in any case, I got rid of Facebook from my archives (after a few tries, to connect it to my computer and do it like that) so I will reinstall by click on reinstall, but that's the problem... Once it has downloaded, it will install again and this message is constantly "There was a problem during installation" I click OK and it is always uninstalled! It is VERY frustrating!

    Any ideas?

    Very much appreciated (BTW I'm new :/)

  • BlackBerry Smartphones appointment recurring sync problem with Outlook

    Outlook 2003 SP3 has been synchronized with my curve perfectly until a few weeks ago.  Suddenly the clock wants to remove all my recurring appointments in my calendar in Outlook - hundreds of them.  I opted for no synchronization.  After reviewing the forums, I found a recommendation to delete all files from my Intellisync folder and try again.  So I did, and then resync the value upward my Desktop Manager and started around.  Amen - he wanted to remove all my recurring appointments, so I advanced and accepted the additions to my Outlook.  Now I have duplicates of all appointments on my BB!  My vision is OK, but it did not get my BB calendar additions.  Sheesh!

    Want to a * beep * (who really does not go through and remove all duplicates!), I would of course like to some lawyers!  Thank you in advance.

  • BlackBerry smartphones, what's the problem with Roxio Media Manager?

    I bought my first Black Friday Blackberry 8310 Curve. For some reason the Blackberry Desktop Manager installed and works quite well. However, when I open the screen Roxio Media Manager freezes and it does not even show my device. I have uninstalled cleanly and re-installed more than a dozen times and cannot operate. Also, we went and bought a graphics update and the sound card and installed them. The Roxio media manager ALWAYS freezes up and we must stop it.

    I do a lot of Paintshop Pro and have these programs as well as other graphic software. I wonder if it's a software conflict? I don't see one. Or if the Roxio is a point of sale as someone posted before.

    I spent hours and hours reading all I can on this subject and not online can not find an answer to anywhere. The main reason I want the Media Manager, is I want to make my own ringtones... that's all! The rest I can do without it. The BB Media Manager has the ability to make ringtones?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
