    What carrier are you on. And what version number and platform number does your phone say in the about screen?

    Ok. Have you resent your service books and done a battery pull making sure to leave the battery out for at least 60 seconds?

    If the .90 radio code is dropping calls for you, I hate to say it but you may have to revert back to .75. Did you have any issues with EDGE on that OS?

    Uninstall any OS's from your PC. Then connect you blackberry to DM and you should get an option to downgrade to .75. Then just follows the onscreen steps (click the option to downgrade). Make sure to backup in case you run into any issues.

    Check in control panel, add/remove programs. Make sure you don't have any software located in there. If you do uninstall it.

    No the CD is for desktop manager not the handheld software.

    Have you checked with Movista Venezuela on their network status? They have been experienced problems in the past with EDGE connectivity.

    No problem. Open DM then hook up you BB , then go to software updates. There should be two showing .75 and .65. Check .75 then install that to your BB.

    Don't you need .75 installed on the computer? It had me download and install it while downgrading one day..
