BlackBerry Smartphones has the question about GPS

I have a BB 8800 device. It is connected to a mobile phone service provider that does not support BES or BIS. In other words, I use this device as a mobile phone.

When I open Options-> Advanced Options-GPS and run the menu: "Refresh" GPS "didn't get no information from GPS (inside and outside).

There are zeros in Latitude and Longitude.

My question is: the GPS on BB8800 depends on mobile provider and my data plan?

I understand that to display the cards that I have at least GPRS-internet service enabled to access and download blackberry maps.

But I don't get any results when I simply run the GPS Options and launch refresh GPS info.

Could you please explain. Maybe I am doing something wrong.

Thank you.

I don't know if the GPS works at all the or not depends on whether the carrier allows him. But even if they do, it can be quite risky. I have Verizon in the United States and subscribe to the GPS service. I think it's pretty good - when it works. The biggest problem is that every four or five days about it does connect to GPS in the service of Verizon GPS signals, nothing else that the error messages "can not connect", and I do the reset drill "remove the battery and let it sit for a very long time" in order to resume service. Oddly, it's going to walk very well on Google Maps in this condition, but not on the traditional GPS. Would like to know the cause, since it seems that I am still an urgent need for GPS when he chooses to do not. Four or five days everything works well, then I'm in a strange city and the need to go from the airport to the hotel - and it won't work, so I find myself in some of Mall parking lot looking at my phone and the battery if displayed on the seat next to me, waiting for some kind of magic back to happen. The good news is that the reset still seem to work. The bad news is that I thought there is no alternative to lose 20 minutes to get a good discount to zero. I'm probably two resets far from cancelling the GPS service, it's just unpredictable as to when it's going to fail. Google Maps is not really very accurate in showing you where you are, but it has its uses. We are house hunting and I find that using Google Maps, while we are looking at a beautiful House we prevented them from making a few mistakes - found some really nasty industrial plants just across a line of trees, for example. I also use it to find restaurants that are pretty close to my hotel (so the total precision is not serious) of the Decree.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones New User: Questions about the internal clock synchronization, software updated

    Hellko Forum.

    For two weeks, I use a Blackberry Bold 9900 with OS7.1 and I am very satisfied with the device.

    But there are some questions for which I have found no solution:

    (*) Looking back at my old Siemens S10D or SK65, they had an option to synchronize the internal clock with time of the GSM network information. Will there be a similar option in the Bold 9900? What I found was an option in the date and time settings. But when I put "Government aktualisieren" (setting the time) on 'automatic' then time switches to October 5, 2013, 12:20 and nothing happens. Is it possible to connect to an NTP server? If so, where to enter the address?

    (*) On this Web page - of... Describes how to upgrade the software of the smartphone "over the air". But I can't find this option. Where the developer has hidden this feature?

    Thanks a lot for the answers in advance

    Hello again,

    noone has an answer to my questions?

  • BlackBerry Smartphones has simple question on volume of phone ringing.

    I am grateful for this forum because even simple questions like the following are difficult to obtain responded by Blackberry.  Seizing the issue in the 'Help' section on my handheld gives always nothing.  It seems that a large company like RIM would understand more in their user manuals.  Anyway, enough ranting... Here's the question:

    Quite simply, how can I increase the volume of the ringer on the phone?  By pushing the volume button for a call that increase the volume of calls.  Pushing not courts of appeal does nothing.  I'm sure that there is a way to do it, but I'm coming emptyhanded.

    Thank once again the community here as a whole for the excellent work which is made to help other Blackberry users.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones Forget the question of password and security for Blackberry Id

    I try to use my Blackberry Id and I realize that I forgot my password question and security.

    I can't find a solution, I have to do?

    Read this to get instructions to reset your password BlackBerryID:

    KB26361 How to reset a BlackBerry ID password

    It must be remembered the BlackBerryID password or secret answer to the question. Without either, you're stuck.
    Your choice is:
    -Use a different e-mail account to create a new BlackBerryID (with which you will lose access to all apps purchased using the 'forgotten' first BlackBerryID, or)
    -Find the initial email you have been sent to confirm the initial BlackBerryID and there are a link to click to cancel and delete the account. Click on this, delete the account and then you can use that same e-mail to create a new account.
    Good luck.

    Okay so I recently bought a blackberry 9800 torch of my friend, its not in poor condition but it has a few scratches on it. the phone also worked well for her.

    Hello and welcome to the community!

    Given your procurement method, I recommend that to start here:

    • KB05099 Steps to take before selling or after the purchase of a used BlackBerry smartphone

    Ensure that all measures are properly carried out in order to completely divorce the BB from accounts of friends and thus to be able to create entirely what you need for you alone.

    Regarding your question as stated, I recommend that you try to start safe mode:

    • KB17877 How to start a smartphone BlackBerry in Mode safe

    It will take several attempts to get the combination of keys ESC (press/release/hold) OK, so be patient. When properly in Safe Mode, see what happens.

    If the behavior continues, then well... think what happened just before this behavior started? A new application? An update? A theme? Something else? Think carefully that the slightest change can be causal... and try to undo all that was.

    But if the behavior continues mode without failure, you may need to consider more drastic measures - WIPE, OS Reload, BBSAK Wipe/Reload and the process of reloading OS 'skeleton '. To prepare, you should be sure that you have a full backup of your PC... Please see the Backup link in my sig auto on this post for instructions.

  • BlackBerry smartphones is the BBM message for real?

    I just got this forwarded to me BBM message: Message from Jim Balsamic (CEO of RIM Blackberry), we had a use of usernames on Blackberry Messenger. We ask all users to convey this message to their entire contact list. If you do not forward this message, we will take that your account is not valid and it will be removed in the next 48 hours. Please DO NOT ignore this message or blackberry will recognize is no longer your PIN. If you want to reactivate your account once it has been deleted, a supplement of 25.00 will be added to your monthly bill. We are also aware of the question about updates of photos does not appear. We are working diligently to solve this problem and it will be operational as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation. It's for real? I noticed that recognize was spelled wrong and it just doesn't seem to make sense, but who knows more? I don't know even how to transfer a message through BBM surveys if I wanted to. Don't know what to do with it. Any help that anyone can give would be much appreciated! :-)

    ajhaes, Hello and welcome to the forum.

    1. this same question was asked in the forum here dozens of times.

    2. the (not CEO) co-CEO of RIM is named Jim Balsillie, not balsamic (which is a years vinegar made in Italy); Second, the name of the company is blackBerry, not blackberry, and finally if you think that RIM monitors your BlackBerry Messenger messages about whether or not you re - send this message, don't you think THAT RIM could read all your messages? You would put in place with that?

    3. don't you currently get a bill from BlackBerry to which they can add 25.00 to? Users are normally charged by their mobile provider, not RIM or BlackBerry.

    So, what do you think?

    Solution? Remove the user from your BBM contacts who was stupid enough to send you the message.

  • Email to blackBerry Smartphones has stopped working! The problem is NOT solved!

    My BB 9780 was working fine a few weeks ago and then stopped my emails.

    I have not added any application or change anything

    I tried this service book record thing, out of battery, removal of e-mails and trying to set them up again (which doesn't work now) and nothing

    So no idea?

    I'm tired of these bugs... I would really like to have a phone that can receive emails, otherwise it will become a big paperweight

    Hello and welcome to the community!

    I know you said you tried some things, but I don't know if you've done these steps exactly. Therefore, I suggest the following steps, in order, even if they seem redundant to what you have already tried (steps 1 and 2, each should result in a message to your BB to come...) Please wait for this before moving on to the next step):

    (1) registry HRT

    • KB00510 How to register a BlackBerry smartphone with wireless network
    • Please wait a 'registration' message reach your Messages application

    (2) remove and return Service directories

    • KB05000 Remove the maintenance book for the BlackBerry Internet Service email account in the BlackBerry smartphone
    • If you do not have access CMIME, continue deleting
    • KB02830 Send the directories for the BlackBerry Internet Service
    • Please wait "the Activation' Messages, one per already configured e-mail account, arrive in your Messages. If you have not already configured email accounts, please wait 1 hour.

    (3) restart to take batt

    • 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.

    I hope that will move things again for you! If not, then you should try remove and re-add your BIS configuration for these accounts. Otherwise, you should contact your mobile provider for formal support.

    Good luck!

  • BlackBerry Smartphones has weird icon in the notification area.

    Hello friends,

    I own a Blackberry 9300, and recently I had this weird looking icon in my notification area. It looks like a kind of Sundial (the replacement of the clock we used when we had no clocks) with a red star and 1 written before him. Tried all applications, message, etc. etc., but nothing works.

    I would upload the photo (I have chewed the screen using an application), it were not to my knowledge of how to download images on forums.

    If anyone has the idea while on it, please help!

    Thank you.

    Try this, too... scroll to the top of your message list.

    Your message, not your specific e-mail folder list.

    Press the menu key > mark read beforehand.

    He disappears?

    If this is not the case, go back to ALL your applications. Somewhere, there's an alert.
