The phone purchase blackBerry smartphones - alleged duplication/reconditioning of old phones

Hi, all members in my bb handsets own family and to my surprise as I saw an old box of one of the bb, it contained 3 handsets with imei bb stickers is as follows (one of them being the imei of my phone) a [personal information deleted] b my phone Imei Imei [personal information deleted] and c. Imei [personal information]. These stickers have been glued on top of each other very carefully. My query is whether the phone I bought is tampered with or it's a renovation done by blackberry itself? P.S. I bought the phone of a large chain of stores (India) selling mobile phones.

The phone that I have reported to is about 2 years old; I found that this falsified packaging only now and not earlier. To clarify, Global Access is also a very reputable brand for the purchase of mobile phones in India and its likely to be an authorized dealer of blackberry as well.

So, you use the phone now for two years and I want earlier if you bought new or else a refurbished device, or used?

As you've waited two years for this question, it is impossible to answer. As you can see from your reply above, the machine had

  • The Webkit browser blackBerry smartphones - don't click on phone numbers! ???

    Seriously! Looks like such a basic feature that existed even on my old blackberry. I can't click on the phone from the browser numbers to make a call. Is this true or am I missing something here. Frustrated by the lack of functionality. Thinking to take this phone and wait for a better of Sprint Android phone. This does not seem like the rest of an upgrade from the curve.

    Thanks for your sharing. I think you're right. It seems very useful

  • Name of the Contact to blackBerry Smartphones don't be displayed not only the locked phone

    When someone call me if BB 9700 phone is unlocked, phone number and contact name is displayed and I know who is calling.

    If the phone is locked, only the phone number is displayed. Hard to know who is calling.

    This problem appears after I upgraded to OS5 OS6.

    Could you help me?

    Thank you in advance.


    1. you probably have "Content Protection" located on your address book.
    Look at the Options > Security > General settings. Scroll down to the content Protection > include addresses = no
    * If you don't see it here, your device operating system handles this differently. Look at the Options > Security > encryption.

    2. go to Options on your device > Security Options > encryption > include contacts the value 'No '.

  • BlackBerry Bold 9900 not saved the network of Blackberry smartphones


    I have Blackberry data services with my provider of Meteor, and that they worked with my previous Blackberry 9900. I had to replace it and bought a second-hand 9900, which was a feature of company on the Vodafone network. I have unlocked it and I am able to use the SIM for calls and connect to the internet via wifi, but I'm unable to activate Blackberry internet services. Host Routing Tables are empty and I can't save. In addition, in the e-mail settings, I get only the ability to create a company account.

    I did a full factory reset and I tried to save the Tables in routing host several times but nothing happens.

    Thank you

    Hello and welcome to the community!

    Start here please... you did some, but not all, these necessary things:

    In addition, please check this:

    If there is a COMPUTER policy, please will then this:

    Finally, after all that, 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

    • Please wait a 'registration' message reach your Messages application

    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
    • Please wait "the Activation' Messages, one per already configured e-mail account, arrive in your Messages. If you have not already configured email accounts, please wait 1 hour.

    3) restart

    • 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 this isn't the case, then again please contact your mobile provider for formal support. Please ask him to check very carefully as to why your BB cannot receive BIS of their network. There are several possible reasons (e.g., lost or stolen), and you will have to convince them to 'dig deeper' to understand why. Be aware that only they can do this research... nobody here has any access to this research.

    Good luck!

  • BlackBerry Smartphones transfer Apps from your old phone to phone upgrade


    My apologies in advance if this is the wrong place to post this request, but I just got a BB torch as an upgrade and would like to transfer my many apps from my old phone (BB Curve 8520) but don't know how to do it- or do I have to download it again? No problem with free applications, but would rather not buy those that I bought and paid.

    Thank you very much in advance for any help.


    First, plug your phone BlackBerry Desktop Software and click on the device at the top.  I'm not sure what the exact measurements are to transfer data to your new phone (I don't have access to it right now), but it is not difficult to understand.

    From there on, you open AppWorld on your new phone and connect.  Your apps are updated on your new phone.  Those who have not been purchased on AppWorld will not; you will have to reload them manually, but all the AppWorld purchases will transfer themselves.

    I hope that helps you.

  • Problems with WIFI with the Bold 9700 blackBerry Smartphones

    My daughter recently bought a Bold 9700 and has problems with the help of the feature wi - fi.

    It seems to connect OK to our wireless router, but the performance is pathetic & often give up entirely. It's so bad, she renounced the use of a wi - fi connection and must now connect via 3G. Obviously it's costs downlaods, plan and money, then I'll try to trouble shoot why wi - fi works so bad.

    I ran the diagostics wi - fi and connection details are below. However I do not know how to interpret it and what other things to check. The report of wi - fi and other details on the phone & rtouter that we use is below. BTW all of our other wireless devices work correctly through the router.

    I hope someone can help.

  • Frozen to the software update blackBerry smartphones

    I have a Blackberry Curve 9360 and it is frozen all by doing an update of the software (progress overall backup 13%).  It has been like that for the last two hours.  I tried to take out the battery, but it just goes back to the same screen when it restarts.

    Can anyone help please?

    Two options to try:


    • Open Blackberry Desktop Software & connect your device with the PC using the USB cable, without inserting the battery.
    • You have three Retry option, update or cancel, and then click Update.
    • Once it is at the stage of the "initialization of pocket" update, then insert the batteries.
    • If this does not work, and you get stuck on the safeguarding of social data feeds, go to the second method below.


    • Start your BlackBerry in safe mode.  Article ID: KB17877 how to start a mode BlackBerry smartphone without failure
    • Connect to the BlackBerry Desktop Software and allow handheld to connect. If you are prompted to update, cancel the upgrade for later.
    • IF you can not connect or your desktop software does not recognize your device in Mode safe, please follow the instructions here to force detection: Article ID: KB10144 how to force detect the BlackBerry smartphone using the Application Loader
    • Go to device > delete > SELECT DATA > select this option to remove the Social flow and smart card data bases and follow the rest invites you to complete.

    I hope someone can help.  My Blackberry as has recently developed it a problem where the bolt touches the habit ' work.

    I tried several resets masters by removing the battery and the SIM one frame and then leave.

    She also now further developed where the phone is locked or goes into applications with instructions.

    I'm a few months upgrade if you need this binding

    any help would be appreciated.


    This looks like what I've seen several times on a device with moisture damage.
    Even sitting on a counter in the bathroom during a steamy shower bath, or hot in a humid gym locker or against kitchen when there is high humidity, can cause problems with keyboard and trackball up to properly dry. Really, it is more common than you think.
    1 the battery immediately! Do not turn on your BlackBerry device.
    2. allow the device to dry in a warm, dry place for 3 to 5 days * (see below)
    3. DO NOT "check it every day" by placing the battery in. Leave what would to dry completely. It takes time. Replacing the battery to check it can damage only (humidity + power = disaster).
    4. If the unit is hot after the drying period, let it cool to room temperature before placing the battery in the.

    Suggestions on your BlackBerry in a warm dry place (open, with battery):
    * Place the BB in a container of rice uncooked dry, and then you can also place it in one of the locations mentioned below.
    * On top of any heat dry emitting electronic components: TV or CRT, LCD, TV cable box / Satellite or plasma monitor
    * On the dashboard of your car on a day sunny

  • Texts of reading for the evil of blackBerry Smartphones

    Don't know what I did for my Blackberry Curve 9320. I can still send and receive texts, that the problem comes from trying to read them. For example, when I send a text message that he disappears from the display. If I return to the page that lists all the texts and click New to re read the text, it just goes to a completely blank screen. The only way to read the text sent is to click on the menu button and will forward it, then the message is displayed in the bottom box.

    When I receive a text at the beginning, he's sitting there with a yellow bubble next to it. Once I click to play it, I get a blank screen. When I return to the page that lists all the messages in the speech bubble is now white and I can only read the message if I use the menu button, choose forward, and here is the message crushed in the bottom of the screen again.

    Any ideas? had the phone for 14 months and this just started.

    Thank you very much for your useful post.

    Before I had a chance to read your advice my partner tried a reboot "soft"? Simultaneously pressing the keys alt, aA, and delete and the problem is now solved.

    Always useful to know what to try when something odd happens.

    Just got a new BlackBerry, then this is probably a stupid newbie question!

    When I get a call it shows just the phone number and not the name of the appellant in my address book.

  • Images of the shipment of blackBerry Smartphones

    When I send photos by BBM the receiver gets very small images. When people send them to me, I get full screen. Anyone has any ideas, if there is a setting on my phone is the type to send a picture? Or is it the phone receives the photo that has the problem?


    It depends on the version of the OS device to the receiver as well as the version of BBm they use.

    Generally small in BBM, it turns out, but if they save the peak, it will be a little bigger.  Make sure that you and your BBM friends use version more current BBM ( and also the most up to date OS for their device.

  • I lost all my media files after removing the battery for blackBerry Smartphones

    My employer asked me to remove the battery from the phone, as they had no trace of the IMEI no to my phone.

    When I reinserted it all my media files - videos, sound time and pictures - were gone.

    Again, I have all my contacts and continues to receive emails from work, so the phone had not been restored to preset.

    I have never had a media card, so all the files are in the phone's memory, are they retrievable?

    Now when I use the phone it wont let me not record a video as it is also no card inserted media. It wasn't a problem before.

    Why the battery would cause the memory to wipe?

    can anyone help?

    What is a device issued to the employer?

    You are on a BES (BlackBerry Enterprise Service) business account?

    The card is inserted correctly?

    Options > memory, made it sets out a memory card?
