To send a message I have to turn off my mobile network back on and off multiple times and even that doesn’t work sometimes. And when the red clock disappears I just get the tick with no “D”. I notive on my signal bar where the 3g is the bbm doesn’t work without the bbm sign there, however it regular goes away if I don’t use bbm in the space of like 10 minutes.
Will somebody please PLEASE help me with my problem, its driving me nuts!
A big thank you for anyone that trys to help.
Have you updated the OS? The OS 188.8.131.525 most 9780's are pre-installed with, is totally screwy.
Type myver then space key (in any text entry field, memo, bbm etc) and it will display the current OS you have installed.
Check this forum for updated info for where to get newer versions.
184.108.40.2060 is a good OS. Without too many problems. Plus BB App World has a BBM update for your device (came up yesterday). You might try that first. Then if that doesn't help, call your carrier and ask for BB technical support and ask for a network reset for your device. And if that works, you're all set. Upgrade the OS anyways, as just about ANY OS is better than the junky 220.127.116.115 it launched with.
Don't forget: the new browser supports HUGE file downloads. You can download a 190MB OS file no problem, directly to your device. D/L on Wifi - its just as fast, and won't kill your data package. Posted via BlackBerryForums.com Mobile
