First OS changing! Help.
I have a blackberry 9530 from the USA but i live in poland. I have the simlock took off. I never upgraded it and i wonder if i do can i mess up something cuz im not using verizon anymore but another provider called Orange. Last time i tried to speed it up doing all this http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=...43/3sUVY6nPN58 and now i cant send text msg's. I can receive'em tak calls and call but cant send sms. I dont have internet either but i think its cuz Orange doesnt sell the blackberry 9530 in polad still (Telefony komórkowe Orange - abonament, mix, karta i internet - those are the only BB being soled in poland) So i wanna ask u if i can upgarde it safely and to what kinda OS ?
First a couple of questions.
Are you familiar with backing your device up so that you save all the data that is currently on the Blackberry?
Next question would be do you have a data plan that allows you to send and receive emails?
This is all i know about backing up and upgrading: http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/b...es-videos.html. On my last phone i could send e-mails and i had internet, on the BB i dont even have internet when i go to browser it says: Your device does not currently have any browser configuration Service Book Entries. Please contact your service provider to enable the browser on your device.
That all you need feelin. That link will give you the step by step as to how to up grade your device.
As far as you browser, you will need to have your carrier send you the service books. That is why I was asking about the email plan. With your service books you get your email and you are supposed to get the data fro the browser. This is carrier dependent.
so i could safely upgrade my phone with no problems ? i heard that the fact that my blackberry is unlocked makes it harder, is that true ? And y cant i sent text msg's after speeding up my phone (look on the top for the link :)) ? will upgrading my phone delete that problem ? And one more question: as i said before im using a difrent provider then the one that i bought it from. When i upgrade it can i mess up sth with the provider on my phone, like i want be able to find my provider and i'll be left with no "signal strength" :D i will have a "brick" to play and not be able to call ? (if thats even possible :D)
And could reeboting the phone by pulling out ur battery mess up u'r phone ? i mean if u do it several of times ?
no its not true i have 2 unlocked bolds and ive never had issues. i also have a locked storm and there is no difference in procedure.
and the battery pull will absolutly not hurt the phone. Actually alot of us here recommend doing it regularily. it tends to fix more issues than anything.
as for the txt issue im pretty sure the upgrade will solve it, not 100% positive tho.
Sometimes things just arent compatible.
but at first i could send them and then after the speed up they just dont send. The person i wanna send it to never gets it nd by the msg i have a red "x".
Does everyone have a problem with the storm that when its layed down like on a desk the accelerometer tends no to work. U have to pick up the phone ?
try resending your service books.
and the issue with the accelerometer is actually normal
