Default Radio???

Please Login to Remove!

My battery got very low and now that its charged back up, I can't get online because of it saying that the radio is turned off. How do I turn it back on?

I am not an expert, but when anything funky happens the first thing to do is pull the battery. Do that with the BB on - just pop the cover and then the battery. Wait a few seconds and put it back in.

Go into your Manage Connections icon and place a check next to Mobile Network.

Also, keep your device charged regularly to prevent this

If you look at the 'bars', you will probably see that you are not having any service. Please do the following:
1) Power off the Blackberry
2) Remove the Battery
3) Remove the SIM card
4) Reinsert the SIM card
5) Reinsert the battery
6) Power ON the blackberry

You should be good to go.

That will work, but is overkill. You could follow the steps in post #4 and be back up and running a lot quicker (especially for the Tour users with that killer reboot time).
