BlackBerry smartphones - what data services is free?

Hello, this is (if enabled) data services for free?

N ° but depnding on your carrier if they're on the promotion or free services for some time.

I got a tip, well, when I was still with Curve 8530 under Options-> manage the connection (don't know if I remember this right), choose Hotspot. This way you use hotspot wireless connections in the area as you are and not your carrier. However some carriers already will give you access to the data as part of your plan to feature (post paid).

What device do you use the most? I have the Bold 9900 now and this 'hotspot' I'm talking about is no part of my option - in fact I don't have - maybe because the newer versions are more concerned now to determine if 3 g or 4G (2G)

  • BlackBerry Smartphones off data services - how will this affect my phone?

    I recently bought my first Blackberry ever and I am now impressed and have a few questions through

    I've had a look around and managed to find a lot of what I need these forums already, so I am very grateful to everyone who has already answered in other issues, as it helped me.

    However, I have a question that remains unanswered.

    I bought the phone without a data plan and I have looked around and saw that to navigate through the wifi I have to configure my browser for mode access point.

    I can browse the mobile network, but as pay as you go and it's expensive, so I want to prevent that from happening. I've already hired a few fees according to my bill online trying to browse before wifi I found the access point mode.

    I found the entry of data services. If I turn this off, my phone will still work as usual? (phone, receive texts and picture messages?) -If it prevents my phone to connect by mistake, it would be exactly what I need! However if it prevents that, I guess it's a useless option!

    Cheers in advance for any help.

  • BlackBerry smartphones unavailable data Services & data of non-operational service

However, whenever I try to go to BB app world via wifi he'll tell non-operational data and service everytime I try to log in to msn it will say not available data services. My question is, I need data plan to use both apps?

  • BlackBerry Smartphones turning Data Services overall roaming and always use WiFi

    I travel to the United States each week and would like to be able to turn off data roaming services.  I expect that I would still be able to connect to WiFi even with data roaming services.  Is this correct?

    I am actually able to connect WiFi when I select 'Data off Service when roaming'.

  • Problems of browser to blackBerry Smartphones. Missing service book.


    I have a blackberry storm 9500 from the Germany. I am located in Yerevan (Armenia). It seems that there are several problems with my smartphone:

    1. when I try to connect to the browser, the following message appears: «your device has no currently all entries in book of Service Configuration Browser.» Please contact your service provider to enable the browser on the device"or next:"It seems that your device does not have an installed service WAP2.0 book."

    2. I can't find the networks without wire in my phone.

    3. I can send info via bluetooth, but it cannot receive (after the coupling with other phones of course).

    4. can I transfer my messages in the "SMS SIM Card Inbox" folder in the folder "Inbox SMS"?

    Thank you in advance!

    No problem!  I'm just sorry I can't do more to help!  If you explain in detail the situation of your carrier, I hope they can get you operational.  You may also call Vodafone in Germany to see if they will release your phone IMEI # and PIN # in order to work with your network.  Unfortunately I don't know a lot about this fact (just what I've seen here on the forums), but maybe someone else who has done this before will see this and can help more!

    If you do not hear anything someone else on this, try to start a new thread with the following title: "need help with get data service on a Storm 9500 unlocked from a different network."

    This should be able to get more attention to others who have experienced similar problems and managed to solve it.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones wipe data for curve 8900

    Hi, I'm new on using a BB.  They keys are unresponsive and the telephone company, said a replacement will be sent within one week.  My problem is I want to "destroy" all data from my camera.  I tried to make the software upgrade and support phone order, but he did not do anything.  I don't want to just not all phone numbers, SMS and emails sent with the unit.

    Can someone help me with this.

    Thank you


    OK... so it's planned...

    The following procedure deletes all data, or all data and applications on the BlackBerry smartphone. Back up the data before you perform the procedure. For instructions, see KB12487.

    1. connect the BlackBerry smartphone to PC computer.
    2. open start-> programs-> Accessories-> command prompt.
    3. navigate to C:\Program Files\Common search in Motion\Apploader.
    4. type loader.exe /resettofactory.

  • BlackBerry smartphones, what's wrong with my Blackberry Bold 9930

    First the screen of my Blackberry would freeze upwards and it wouldn't let me do anything for a few minutes, so I had to take my battery out and then after that I took out my battery and put back in place he would have himself cut and wouldn't load, it would load at halfway then stop and try again. I use to have to take out the battery for a few days before its in so that he can turn it on but one day it does at all so I thought it was the battery but I just bought a new battery and its charging again to half way and stop and then try to load again, but it won't turn. Does anyone know what the problem with it... I have to wait a few days before you put the new battery in once again and then it will work or is the phone itself and I just need to get a new one?  Help, please.

    Hello and welcome to the community!

    Please try this sequence... Note that, throughout the whole 4h15m process, your BB should stay connected to a good charger (not the USB PC):

    1. With battery, connect your BB to the wall charger
    2. Leave it alone for 2 hours, no matter what the LED or the screen not
    3. Remove the battery
    4. Wait 15 minutes
    5. Insert the battery
    6. Wait another 2 hours, no matter what the LED or the screen not

    This has been known to "revive" some BBs.

    It is also possible that your battery or BB has encountered a problem... to test, this sequence is necessary:

    1. Get a known good and already fully charge battery... use it in your BB and see what happens
    2. Get access to a BB good and the same known... use your battery in there and see what happens

    The results of this will show if your BB or your battery that has the problem. I realize that you have purchased a new battery, but please understand that 'new' and 'well known' are not necessarily the same thing... While it's rare, that a new battery cannot be subject to default. The best thing to do is to find someone with an identical BB which has no problem... to Exchange batteries and see what happens.

    In addition, the next thing is to 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, thinking... 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.

    Otherwise, your next steps become much more radical.

    Good luck and let us know!

  • BlackBerry smartphones lost data from calendar

    I downloaded an update on my BlackBerry over the weekend. At the end of the download, I got a message in my calendar events were not loaded. Omigod. My calendar is empty. Does anyone have an idea where things went? Are they saved somewhere in my Blackberry or on the hard drive of my laptop? Birthdays, meetings, history of calendar are all gone. This is the nightmare that we fear. Thank you.

    Here's a knockout that documents the restoration process...

  • BlackBerry smartphones, what happened to my memory? HEEEELLLLLLPPPP!

    Last night I updated my 8120 with the latest software available for me, that was the v45.0.124.  Before that, when I go my camera it said that I had about 40 or more photos.  Now, after update, I have 0 pictures on the left.  I checked my bytes and he said: I had over 9 million, and when I plugged my phone in the Desktop Manager, it said I had left 21Mo.  My question is why can't I save images or ringtones now?


    This explains the photos.

    I strongly suggest that you get a media card.

    megabyte 10,2721 is what you had before the reset,

    megabyte 11,7538 what you were after.

    64 megabytes is what your phone is total.

    15 MB would be considered as minimum for your phone working properly.

    I suggest the following items and keep your approximately 20 MB of memory

    Just a tip, most people close the applications by pressing the ESC key or red. This does not close the applications.

    Each application has an option to close or exit. For example, if you are in the calendar, press the menu key (spotted) and scroll down to the bottom close is listed. You can see what is running by using the switch application option in the main menu.

    Thank you

  • BlackBerry smartphones, what will happen if I restore my OLD BB data in the new system of BB?

    I'm planing to change my BB device, my BB Curve 9360 for BB Curve 9220.

    My question is that if I backup that my old data from my Curve 9360 then restore it in the new one, BB Curve 9220 will I have my BB PIN remain the same as in my Curve 9360 ot I have to use a new one in the curve 9220?

    Can I put the 9220 Curve with the latest OS from my BB Curve 9360?

    Are there opportunities that I could use my old BB PIN in my BB Curve 9360 instead of the new?

    Thank you: to vname in my Vns

    If you bought a pin code customized for BBM you can keep that. However, the BlackBerry pin code does not change. There is a white label under the battery that has your PIN on it. No way to change that.
