Default Just got a 7290 and need alot of help!!!

Please Login to Remove!

Ok so i just got a BlackBerry 7290 which first had no battery in it. So i took one out of an older BlackBerry that has no model number, and put it in my 7290. But that battery was dead. So i used a mini USB cord to plug into my 7290 with a larger USB on the end plugged into my computer. The red light comes on and then a little hour glass turns, then comes this circle with a line through it, and in the circle is what looks like an application window with a circle, a square and a triangle in the middle and the number "507" under it all. It stays there and then if i hit the light button at the bottomn it turns the light up then it shuts off, the red light turns back on then it repeats the process. If anyone knows what is happening and can help my I would GREATLY appriciate it, thank you for your time.

Yes; that's the ONLY way to upgrade the OS on the BlackBerry. THe FAQ had all of the steps, but here they are:

- Shutdown Desktop Manager
- Download the Handheld OS for the 7290
- Install in (onto your PC)
- Delete VENDOR.XML from the PC C: drive
- Connect the BB and restart Desktop Manager

I am new here and do not know a freakin thing about these. I am too lazy to read instructions. But, Maybe since your BB does not have an OS the upgrade will not work because its an upgrade. Is there a choice to an early full OS to download? Then once that is installed and it works then do the upgrade.
