  • BlackBerry smartphones becomes really slow, almost freezes when I text someone!

    Hello everyone

    I just joined. I've had my blackberry 8330 during about 5 months now and there was only a small, but very annoying problem with it.

    Whenever I text a person (which also has verizon), or receive a text of them, my blackberry takes almost 3 minutes of 'send' the message to them. The message is sent, but my screen gets stuck on the screen of response message. Eventually he goes back to the main office, but at a time where he does it, I have alreadhy has received the text of the person and the slow starts all over again!

    If that makes sense for everybody, pleaseeeeeee help me

    Thank you!!!

    I had this problem on my phone but it only occurred when I receive a message from that particular person or a response to a message from that person. What I did to solve the problem is to go into my address book, select the person, and then click SMS this person. For some reason, sending the person a message through the address book instead of replying to a previous message fixed the problem completely for me. Still mess up once a month or she is immediately resolved by this method each time. Let me know if this corrects the problem.

  • Configuration of blackBerry Smartphones, BB App World icon icon does not

    Hello! I have BB Torch 9810 and I recently experience given my previous BB Curve 9300... Although all e-mails, contacts restered 100%, I started having problems with the 9810 BB... World Apps BB icon didn't exist in the office while I installed and reinstalled several times, (b) applications twitter and FB Apps don't seem to, (c) configuration icon when I click it it invites a mistake on BB toolkit and doesnot open... I did the installation of soft and hard, but problems exist... Besides, I realized that my mails where not downloaded, and I restored them once again I synchronize the server... Is it possible to fix it? I can do a complete new installation of OS 7.1, and this will solve my problems? Thank you in advance...

    Hello and welcome to the community!

    Given everything you describe, I agree that a reload of the OS would be your best bet to try to resolve this situation. The easiest way is, on a PC (you can not do on MAC):

    (1) make sure that you have a current backup and your BB complete... you can find the instructions at the link in my auto-sig below.

    2) uninstall all the BB OS packages from your PC,

    (3) make sure you have the BB Desktop Software already installed

    (4) download and install on your computer, the BB OS package you want:

    • If all you want are the levels of BONE, it is first sorted by carrier - the carrier supports, your search will be fast. However, some carriers are much slower than others to release updates. To really get the package up-to-date OS for your BB, you need to dig through and find all businesses that support your specific model BB and then compare the BONE levels they support.

    5) remove all copies of the SELLER on your PC. XML... There will be at least one and maybe 2, and they will be located in the same way or to (it changes based on your version of Windows) these files:

    • C:\Program Files (x 86) \Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader
    • C:\Users\(your Windows username) \AppData\Roaming\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML

    6 (a) to change your level of BB OS installed (at level or lower), you can run the Desktop software and connect your BB... the software should offer the operating system package you have installed on your PC.

    6 (b) or, for recharging your BB OS level installed as well to change, work around the Desktop software and use the CHARGER. EXE directly, through step 2 in this process:

    If, during the process of 6a or 6 b, your BB has an error '507', simply unplug the USB of the BB cord and reinsert it. do nothing else... This should allow the installation to continue.

    If you are on a MAC, you are limited to only your sanctioned carriers OS packages... but can still use any level they currently have to sanction. See this procedure:

    Hi and welcome to the forums!

    Usually the seller (Vodaphone in this case) switch them when you buy the unit. I Sue this option first.

    If you use the same SIM which was in the Nokia try the following:

    Since I upgraded to surveys last BBM, where voice chat has been installed, my phone freezing guard and the two mobile network and wifi connection keeps failing. My phone is set to favorite wifi.

  • BlackBerry & Smartphones Photos Contact names ceased to show (9650)


    Earlier, I added photos contact to all my BBerry Contacts.  It worked perfectly for quite a while.

    But the last 2 weeks (or more), when I get a call I get no resources and no contact photo.  Just the number, which, if I don't recognize, I'm going to ignore.

    (The reason why I have the names and photos is so I don't have to memorize numbers.  )

    The contact photos are always in my contacts list, so nothing happened to them.  And ss as much as I know I haven't added new applications.  So I'm puzzled as to why they would suddenly stop showing when I get a call.

    Anyone know how I can make them work properly?

    I covered this Council and google for an answer and not found anything.  Thank you very much in advance...


    I would recommend to check if you have encryption enabled on the BlackBerry smartphone or press card. Go to the Options-Security Options. If it is enabled, disable it and try again then take out the battery.

    Thank you

  • BlackBerry Smartphones-box E-mail icon does not appear, but e-mail account is configured in fact

    I have a problem with the icon on a Bold 9790 email box. This is the icon of the envelope with the blue turning the planet.

    I have two email accounts configured in the Options-> e-mail accounts.

    However, only one is displayed on the screen.

    Who does not have the envelope-and-planet icon can receive messages in the global Messages menu, but it's confusing, because this mailbox emails mingle with calls, BBM and electronic messages in the Inbox mailbox on the other.

    How can I solve this?

    Hello and welcome to the community!

    I suggest that you clear the cache of the AppWorld application.

    For legacy devices (pre-BB10):

    1. open the App World

    2. go to my world

    3. follow one (and only one!) of these steps:

    3. for the BB keyboard-oriented - hold down the ALT key and press on, in the sequence R, then S, then T

    3B. for touch screen only BBs - hold the num-lock (! 123 button) so that it hangs and then press on, in the sequence 3, then 4, then)

    3 c for the most recent (e, g., OS6 and 7) BB s, see this KB:

    • KB24714 How to clear the cache of BlackBerry App World

    4 AppWorld must close.

    5. If your BB locks after issuing clear cache, do a battery pull reboot

    6. return to AppWorld/MyWorld (it can be slow, while it re - sync). .

    If (4) stage arrives not as described, then the empty the cache failed.

    For BB10 devices:

  • BlackBerry Smartphones deleting e-mail icons of Curve 8310

    I recently changed email address personal and added new on my device. Then I tried to delete old addresses, but when I go to the configuration of email, it is only showing my new email addresses and not the "old". I don't receive email from the old addresses (or at least they do not display in my folder of message or when I click on the icons, so I guess I don't get them), but the icons are still on my desktop screen. I hid them, but how do I get rid of them completely? Thank you!

    After I posted this, I have done some more research on the Forum and found this thread  I did urumilton suggested by entering the service books and removing books from service for old accounts... and voila! The icons are more on the desktop! YAY!
