  • BlackBerry smartphone keyboard locks when you use the media player

    Hello

    I use the built-in Media Player to listen to the MP3, while I'm working.

    Because I am constantly moving away from my Office I must pause and start the music quite often.

    Sometimes the keyboard will lock everything playing, and I would like to avoid this. As I know the "BOLD" is not an option to automatically block the keyboard.

    Please can someone advise how can I stop this?

    Thank you

    Paul

    Hi guys,.

    Thank you both for your responses.

    I managed to find a solution to my problem, so I thought I would post, not only for the benefit of third parties, but because I thought it was funny when I realized what was causing the keyboard lock.

    When I have my BB out on my desk, I put on the case. I noticed the other day it was light as soon as I picked it up and goes dark as soon as I put it down.

    I checked for password, settings etc. of the screen and couldn't work on what was going on.

    Then I realized, because I rely on the case in the same way that he would lie if it was in the Holster, the magnets (I think there are magnets in the Holster?) were lining up at the BB and she believed that it was inside the case.

    Solution: I know put on the case, but turned around 90 degrees so its cross-cutting installation. Solved :-)

  • BlackBerry Smartphone keyboard lock icon disappeared (curve 8520)

    Hello

    I have recently supported a Blackberry Curve 8520 - I noticed that, once I had connected to my PC via Blackberry Desktop Manager, the icon for the keyboard lock has been removed from the menu.  I looked in the obvious places in the Options to try to restore the icon but can't see anywhere that allow me to ths.  I was also looking for hidden objects, but nothing seems more to be hidden.

    Is it possible to restore the icon?

    Thank you all.

    You may update the software? The lock has changed in the latest versions of the software in all areas for the devices.

  • Lost blackBerry Smartphone keyboard lock

    I have restored my BB Curve and the first restore point, IE: when I got it. Unfortunately this did not restore the original software for the keyboard lock is still missing.

    Can someone please say in simple terms how to roll back the upgrade? I tried some of the suggestions and still end upward with the update installed. I have had this phone for 2 weeks and I am disappointed that BB decided to change things without warning. STINKS like Microsoft and BIG BROTHER.

    Hello

    To load any level of the operating system on your BB, these instructions are the best I've seen:

    Good luck!

  • BlackBerry smartphone keyboard lock forgot password

    Phone was originally a working phone, now personal.  But initially set up to change the keyboard locking every 90 days and have 6 attempts.  Work is implemented with BES so that they cannot help?

    For the first time, I changed the keyboard lock code and now can't remember.  He have used 5 of 6 attempts and I am now on the last attempt,

    I can't lose all my data.  Is there anyway on this earth to reset the keypad lock, or get more than 6 attempts.  I'm desperate

    Wendie

    There is no way to reset the password or a backdoor to the password. It must simply retain it.

    If you have made a backup of your data, you can restore it to the device once he wipes on the 10th entry of incorrect password.

    Are you sure that you do not know the password of all... no idea? Or maybe you have just entered the password incorrectly known? Often users with more than one digit in their password will only press the ALT key to the first digit and not those who follow, so for example, if your password "1234", you could put pressure on 'Alt 1234 "on the device, making the real password to be"1st".

    Who is? It sounds familiar to your use?

    In order to verify the manner in which you enter your password on the device... do you think that you enter several numbers, but in fact are not?

  • BlackBerry smartphone keyboard Lock GONE after update? What, no locking keyboard?

    That's right, a nightmare come true. I did the "necessary" updates last night and now my BB has NO available keyboard lock. What should I do? Anyone?

    Nightmare? Really?

    (This was reported of dozens of times already)

    Your previous lock icon is now only enabled when you have set a password on the device.

    If you have not set a password on the 85xx you can press on and hold the mute (on the upper part of the unit) to lock the keyboard. Or, you can press and hold down the a button * to lock.

    When you set a password, then your icon will return to the screen and is called Password Lock.

    Sweet dreams!

  • BlackBerry smartphone keyboard lock missing

    Just upgraded to 5.0 and keyboard lock is missing. Shortcut as well as the convenience keys. Does anyone have a solution for this short of reinstalling the old software?

    I don't know if you would say that a bug in the OS or glitch or what, but...

    If you have a defined password then you can always lock the device with 'K '.

  • BlackBerry Smartphone keyboard lock

    I just bought a Blackberry 9800 in my company for his personal use. I find that that's what I think is called a "IT lock" on this subject. I can't remove the blocking the activation/deactivation is blocked. My company say that they can help the account is dead. How can I remove this lock feature? I get a letter from the company stating that I have the phobic quite legitimately.

    I can't seem to access to all Blackberry at all that they would be able to help I know.

    Can someone tell me how to unlock the phone or how to get I touch with someone to Blackberry who could do?

    Thank you

    Greetings! -recently improved 8520 handset to the software device to 5.0 - all very well except that the icon I use most - the "Lock keyboard" icon has disappeared. Looked everywhere - icons hidden etc - no luck. Someone at - it a similar problem?

    Who can I contact with to register a support plan?

    One of the evangelists 'Developer' RIM working outside South Africa, I think, so there should be someone local you can talk too.  If you message Mark Sohm (the RIM name you will see a lot on the forum - MSohm), with your e-mail address and it ask to put you in contact with the Developer Evangelist in SA, which should help.  You can tell Mark to ask me if he needs clarification.  Do not promise anything either but I hope that something will happen.

  • Response of the blackBerry Smartphones can not email!

    Suddenly, since I've updated my BB 8520, I find I can send and receive email - but do not answer them!  Any ideas as to why?

    Hello and welcome to the community!

    After updates or then get email of wobbly, 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

    • Each time a random strange behavior or slow creeps, the first thing to do is a battery pop reboot. 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!

    Thank you very much

    N.. completely different. For your mobile network, with a strong network carrier (for example, not only WiFi), 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 from your BB... Please wait just before moving on to the next step):

    1) register HRT

    • KB00510 How to register a BlackBerry smartphone with wireless network

    2) Remove and return Service books

    • 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

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

    For the wireless, there is no sort directly 'reset' nothing beyond removing and reconfiguring of the WiFi network configurations. Beyond that, things as device WIPE, reloading the OS, and other very drastic measures would be required. And, important to note, I have no way of knowing if this is really necessary... you did not no matter what description of what happens, so it is not possible to understand your situation and you give more targeted recommendations.

    Good luck!

  • Cannot save the blackBerry Smartphone Smartphones SMS like any other regular phone?

    I bought my BB Torch not too long ago, but it seems that I could fill up to the brim with SMS because it asks me to delete some to make room for more.

    SMS

    Keep Messages on SIM - check no.

    There is no on the torch, which is a disappointment.

    Anyone know of any way to solve this problem?

  • BlackBerry Smartphones phone locked

    How can I get my phone unlocked? When I turn it on there is a white screen and says "Reload Software: 513"... If you know who I can reach to make it unlocked or can help please let me know... Thank you Kelli

    KB13003"JVM 513" error message appears on the BlackBerry smartphone

    From a PC, you can install any bundle of BONES to a BB via this procedure:

    Note that although written for "reload", it can be used to upgrade, downgrade, or recharge - it depends on the OS package you download and install on your PC. You can even use a different OS package carriers simply insert, between steps 1 and 2, the deletion, on your PC, a file named PROVIDER. XML. remember that you remove from your PC, no matter what other packages devices OS BB as having more than one installed on the PC can cause conflicts with this procedure.

    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:
