How to Format Bold 9780 blackBerry Smartphones?

Please guide me to format my Bold 9780 completely.

That is including the parameters and the data together.

Thanks in advance.

Hello and welcome to the community!

There are several different possible things that could match your desires... but there is no command 'format '. Read this for options:

However, depending on what you actually do, he may need more. For example, if you intend to sell this BB as 2nd hand, then this KB applies:

    Welcome to the Forums of the BlackBerry Support

    You must perform an erasure of security on one of the device and use a new ID of full BlackBerry on this particular device. It will allow you to use these two as different. So, first make a backup of your device in which you will complete these step and then follow this KB and use a new BlackBerryID:

  • Update device software BOLD 9780 blackBerry smartphone does my phone useless

    I upgraded my software for phones device yesterday after receiving a message to HIGH PRIORITY of my service provider to make a upgrade(EE/Orange). They stated that it was a mandatory update for Blackberry.

    After trying for hours to do on the network, it did not indicate "can't connect to the server upodate, please upgrade using your PC using Blackberry Desktop Manager".

    This was my next step.

    * I have backed up my device (yesterday) via BDM (desktop Manager)

    * Click on search updates

    * follow all the links on my BOLD 9780 device through blackberry Web site

    * Click on the link to check my device to update, get informed me "an update is available"

    * A method to update.

    The update returned with an error stating: "Options only 19 times out of 20 have been restored"

    Since then, my phone is unusable. The menu freezes, I can't highlight the options I get no blue outline around the menu options. my text does not work, I can not enter anything, type anything, the phone is constantly freezing and reset.

    I tried to reinstall the update that crashed the phone completely with "" "white screen of death'" ' showing error 507...  Please visit

    This page does not exist!

    I tried again to make an update and got my phone back, but with all the same problems of menu.

    I did restore my device from yesterday. Got my return of data personal, but phone still jumps in all directions, text messaging does not at all.

    I unplugged the battery lasts repeatedly reset and soft reset.

    I tried again to reinstall several times the device software and useless.

    I haved called my service provider and they said his broken blackberry, name of the contact.

    I contacted blackberry support pay crisis (01753 558410). They me redirected to support orange tech who were still more useless than before!

    they gave me the web address: which was not helpful

    So I did spend the whole day. Finally, picking at the drop of water that brings me here (even tried twitter!)

    I can't do yet a security wipe because I can not enter "blackberry" because he is back with "input error, field application for closure" and even if I type, I can not see the text and continue by clicking on "wipe security."

    current software status is:


    B.O.S. 6.0 bundle 2949







    My phone worked ok before that!

    A little advice.

    Not to go near the upgrade:


    For 9780's "BOLD"



    After BBSAk to wipe your phone.

    It works it seems so far... perfectly...

  • BB Bold 9780 blackBerry smartphones recompose question

    Hello world

    I bought my Bold 9780 in Thailand in June 2012. I've now returned to the United Kingdom. When I call a dial a new number on my keyboard without problem. If I try to redial the number from my previous calls list (hit the green call button that my BB automatically adds + 66 (thai country code) in the last dialed number.) So now when I try to dial the last dialed number the call cannot connect...

    Anyone has a solution or advice for the problem of settings I have?

    Thank you!

  • Integrated GPS faulty - Bold 9780 - blackBerry Smartphones?

    Hello to all members of this forum. Best wishes for this new year of the France!

    I have a Bold 9780 (OS 6.0/863), use it for my work (phone company). Until last October 2012, my GPS did a very good job with a lot of applications, such as GPS Waze, Runtastic, Orange Maps, Endomondo road...

    Suddenly, it works fine on 7 October, around noon.

    Since then, I tried everything to fix my problem. Hard reset, uninstall applications, reinstalling with different versions, checked my GPS with LO + THE and position... still stopped at the point of contact information for my house.

    All components are 'in', auto location is "inside" and when updating of situation... in waiting and suddenly a pop-up will explain that my bluetooth sytem (Volkswagen, in my car) is not reachable...

    I live in France with a very good coverage, and I'm sure THAT's not because of my IT Manager: my colleagues very much use the same applications as me before and I phoned my manager who confirmed yesterday it was not blocked by the rules of COMPUTING strategy.

    So is it really a bug about all these kinds of bold 9780 as I read before, or is not a good solution to manage this problem?

    It's very annoying and if there is no solution... I think I'll ask an Iphone for Christmas!

    Really need help solve this problem. I really need to use this GPS for my work (all the days on the road!)

    And please: don't redirect me to the KB #... explaining hox to check the GPS. It has been done many times!

    Thank you and see you soon.


    No, you cannot access specific IT rules, your BES Admin would have to tell you.

    Have you installed BlackBerry Maps for Google maps? I have found that sometimes or the other of these two applications can trigger the GPS to work.

  • BlackBerry Bold 9780 Blackberry Smartphones


    I took over from my previous company Blackberry now I try to put u my new email, but can not really be achieved: under the e-mail account configuration Menu, it is mentioned 'The Enterprise Activation' and request a email address and password (Administrator)

    When I entered the information (even that I used on my phone private mail service server, inbound and outbound pop) I always get the error message: activation request failed. A service connection is not available, but Wifi works.

    My colleagues tell me now that this Blackberry does not work with POP and incoming/outgoing mail server?

    Is this correct? Can Respectevily someone help what should I do to get my e-mail account on the Blackberry?

    Thank you for your comments and support in advance, best regards

    Hello Gardman

    Yes, that's correct. To activate data services BlackBerry: Blackberry push email, ID BlackBerry, BlackBerry Messenger, BlackBerry Protect, BlackBerry World, Blackberry OS 7 devices and previous models require Blackberry data plan. You can call your operator active BIS BlackBerry data Plan.

    Kind regards.

  • BB Bold 9780 blackBerry smartphones

    I've lost the ability to edit my contacts. I also used to be able to remove single letters. This is no longer the case. Cannot delete several emails. Deleted the service books and the e-mail account. Then reopen the account. Nothing has changed. Any ideas what the problem may be?

    You have the Yahoo!! installed application (or Windows Live Messenger, etc.?). If Yes, try to remove that until a new version is available. A number of users have had problems with the edition of contacts with the latest versions of these applications installed.

    I'm not sure what could be the cause of the issue with the removal of e-mails, but try a battery for that one - pull while the device is on, for 15-30 seconds, reinsert the battery and wait for the device to reboot.

    Let us know how it goes and if necessary, we can try other things.

  • My blackberry bold 9780 blackBerry smartphones fell and it won't turn

    He fell and hit the ground hard enough, it just stops, I thought that the battery just on its own so I took out and put again, nothing not even past a red light. I put it on the charger, and it's the same thing, nothing. How can I fix?

    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.

    It is of course also possible that the fall has damaged something inside, making the now useless device. But that can only be properly diagnosed by a qualified equipment with the device by hand.

    Good luck and let us know!

  • How to add Turkish language on my Bold 9900 blackBerry smartphones?


    I have a little problem.

    On my phone, I don't have French, English and Arabic.

    In my old blackberry, I had more than 10 languages, and I don't know what the problem with this one.

    How can I add Turkish language?

    Thank you.

    Ahhh... OK... This is the BB OS package you want to download, not the Ko (as you say). OK... Sorry I'm confused here.

    The easiest way is, on a PC (you can not do on MAC):

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

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

    (3) download and install to your PC, the BB OS package you want:

    4) remove, on your PC, all copies of the SELLER. 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

    (5) run the Desktop software and connect your BB... the software should offer the operating system package you have installed on your PC. If, during the process, your BB votre BB a '507' error, simply unplug the power cord of the BB USB and reinsert it. do nothing else... This should allow the installation to continue.

    Do not forget to save.

    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:
