BlackBerry smartphones help with my bbm, please

Broke my old style of bb, got a new and a larger memory card. I downloaded the latest version of bbm and then restored contacts back... but still not able to send and receive messages. Help please and thank you...

Hi there and welcome to the forums,

There are a few quick things you can try:

1 check to make sure that your phone can receive data. Since you are the Sprint, when you look at the upper right of the screen, it should say 1XEV. If it is not capitalized (i.e. 1xev), you should probably call Sprint and let them take a look at all the settings on your account.

2. go to Options > Advanced Options > host Routing Tables, press the BB Menu key and select Save now. This will help save your BB on the BlackBerry network.

3. go to your e-mail settings, log in (if necessary), press the BB Menu key and select Service books. On the next screen, choose the option to send Service directories.

4. follow steps 2 & 3 with a battery pull if it still does not work.

That should do it, but if not, then the next step would be to contact Sprint without worrying to make sure that your BB has been implemented properly on their end.

Good luck and we keep abreast!

    Perform a simple reboot on the BlackBerry this way: with smart BlackBerry poweredphone, remove the battery for a minute and then reinsert the battery to restart. A reboot in this manner is prescribed for most defects and errors of operating system, and you will lose any data on the device doing so.

    IM new to these forums and a very new user for BlackBerry Smartphones.

    I also have 'edge' at the top right of my receipt of phones, and all Blackberry users that if sims saved on the phone, mine is not? What can I do to fix this?

    I have no message configuration setting, and I do not know how to enter manually? If I can use the SIM card internet? Surely its registered and 150% is not on the blacklist...

  • BlackBerry Smartphones help please - cursor does not not while browsing internet


    My Curve 8520 not long ago and fear I'm kinda a dinosaur techno so please bear with me! Wonder if anyone can help with this.

    While browsing the internet my "slider" has suddenly stopped working. My "cursor" - the small black arrow - is still there but when hover over an area of research for example and "click on" my trackball that nothing happens, even if the little hand symbol appears on a link if I "click" the trackball that nothing happens. I discovered I can press return when the hand appears and it goes on the link, but this is unnecessary when only the arrow appears.

    Any assistance received with gratitude


    Its the kind of thing that could possibly be fixed by a battery pull.

    With the BB powered, remove the battery and keep it for a few minutes. Let us know how you go.

    Hello and welcome to the community!

    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 help on 9320 BB curve?

    Hi all! I just bought my first BB yesterday. as mentioned earlier it's a curve 9320. And I have NO idea on how to work things. so, I would really appreciate the help.

    First of all... I also have an ipod so I have itunes and a whole bunch of songs on my itunes playlist. so, I installed the BB desktop software and read that I could transfer my reading list. When I clicked on sync music it says this:

    "Your media cannot be synchronized. Your support has storage of identification to media sync. "examine usind a media card with your device.

    can someone please tell me a method step by step on how to add music? and find out about what a multimedia card is?

    second of all... me and my brother both got the curve BB 9320. When I scanned it his bbm barcode, it worked then, said 'pending approval', but he did not get any warning about how to accept me as a contact on bbm. If someone could also please tell me a step by step on how to add AND method to accept contacts on bbm?

    Thank you very much. This is my first blackberry, so everything is pretty confusing to me, I would be eternally grateful for the help!

    Thanks again

    A card is a memory card that allows you to save files including pictures, music, etc.  You must use a card large enough to hold the amount of music that you want to synchronize.  It is a microSD card and the device supports up to. 32 GB card.  Be aware that you cannot transfer music from itunes.  Music protected by DRM will not ln any device other than an ipod.

    Like bbm flr, you should make sure that at the. CJU have all two BlackBerry data plan with your carrier.

  • BlackBerry smartphones I want my BBM back! BBM contacts switched between two phones I own, my wife and me

    Hey, my wife's friends are nice, but I can't be in their discussions... I have 2 bb Torch 9800. For no apparent reason about 3 months ago the bbm contacts exchanged between them without any reason. I've been in contact with my phone provider, and they are perplexed and said that it is a problem of bb... How can I get the bbm is switched back to good phones?

    I tried to remove and reinstall applications, same old contacts...

    Note: I share the same e-mail address on both phones, this could be and question? When I got the phones of MTS, a few years ago, they said it was very good and quite work very well to the top until there are a couple / few months.

    Hello and welcome to the community!

    Sharing the same e-mail address is no problem... e-mail systems is generally accessed from multiple customers, and the application of enamel on the BB is just another type of e-mail client.

    But, if you meant that you share the same BBID on both devices, then it indeed is probably the cause of the problem. It is inadvisable to associate a BBID to more than a SmartPhone BB. Strange things can happen, including the tangle of BBM contacts, as has happened to you.

    Since BBM7, BBM contacts are not stored on the device itself... on the contrary, they are stored "in the cloud" with the BBID. Before BBM7 (indeed, "a couple of years"), the BBM contacts were stored on the device itself and therefore would not mingle if a BBID has been shared between several BB devices.

    Here's what you need to do:

    1. Decide which of the two devices will retain the existing BBID
    2. Manually clean the BBM contacts to reflect only what desires this device
    3. On the other BB, you need to prepare by making a full backup of the device, because the "fix" will wipe
      • See the link in my sig auto on this post for instructions to complete backup
    4. Once you have this backup, you should separate this another BB the BBID existing and create a new brand for the single device
      • KB26694 How to change the BlackBerry ID on a BlackBerry smartphone or BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet
    5. Once this is done, you can switch to manually re-create all BBM contacts on the 2nd device (no, there is no way to automate this process for you)

    Good luck!

    Hi everyone I have a question.  I'll send this to the Japan and currently using Blackberry Curve.  The other day I noticed there was a notification update for BBM so I downloaded any for BBM.  And later, I discovered that I had a newer version (not sure) BBM and came with the BBM voice.  On my friends list, I only have my husband living in the United States, and when he saw my recent activity, he thought that I have a new friend in my friends list and I tried to invite this person voice BBM to discuss.  As I've mentioned before, my husband is the only person on my list, so I invite anyone, but on his phone, he sounded like he appeared like that.  He believes that I sent the voice BBM invite someone.  He also said that later, when he checked my list of activity, the invitation was missing, so he thinks that I removed it to hide from him.  Imagine all these things that he told me and I had no idea.  In any case, I want to know if there is anyway I can find out how to check the last date of download BBM to prove that I invite anyone, but I downloaded this day here.  Also, if anyone has an idea why its BBM, it appeared, I asked someone, let me know, too.  Or suggestions will be much appreciated!

    Voice call is a function allowing the BBM user establish a voice call on a WiFi ONLY with BBM contacts out there, you can make a voice call only to those who are in your BBM Contacts.

    As you mentioned that you have only ONE contact in your list of contacts i BBM; e your husband in this situation, it is not possible to place a call on any unknown, unless it is already in your contacts list. But... It's only you who know your contacts list or to confirm.
