I have an 8703e with US Cellular. I just followed the instructions in the post on how to update the OS. I am running DM 4.5 and am connecting my BB to the DM with my bluetooth dingo since I can't get my cord to work for some reason.
Everything is connecting fine with the phone and DM, but the AppLoader, Media Manager and Device Switch Wizard are grey'd out and I can not select them. I would really like to update to the 4.2 OS because I have programs that I want to add, but they only support the 4.2 OS.
Ugh. I've had two different USB cords and neither worked. They were a generic brand that I got from US Cellular. The DM would recognize the phone for 3 seconds, disconnect for 3 seconds, and repeat. Do you know if there's a BB specific cord or something I can get?
IT policy is removed, but the phone/DM are still doing the same thing - connecting for a few seconds, disconnecting, etc. I would really like to be able to use the DM to sync with the programs on my computer, but in order to do so, I need to get the 4.2 OS.
Now DM seems to have a problem - it's had an error pop up twice and shut the program down each time.
I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to the blackberry. I just know enough to be dangerous! I have a couple of mp3's that I would like to add to the blackberry for certain notifications. I have an 8703e through verizon. Can anyone help?
8703E Device Software (updated from 4.1 to 188.8.131.52)
Am on Corporate BES - updated device s/w to 184.108.40.206 on my BB. Since that time, all of my emails on my BB (corporate/personal) are showing diagonal lines (1/2" wide) of red and white. The lines remain when I reply or respond. If I forward the email to my desktop (laptop), the red chunky lines are not there. I have cleaned up my themes and only have those offered by VZW (not 3rd party). I would like to revert back to the 4.1 software - can I uninstall this version? My desktop manager will not allow me to select a previous version. Please advise on the uninstall and also how to remove the lines - I don't particularly care for this new version, some options have changed. Please advise.
