Default Inconsistency

Please Login to Remove!

I'm very grateful for the sound help and advice that I've been given via this forum for some niggling problems I've had (synchronising, upgrading, etc) but one central question remains - why is interfacing a Blackberry with a PC so inconsistent?

From my limited knowledge I know that, for example, synching up the calenders or address books is pretty small beer in terms of digit transfer, yet sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Likewise with upgrades - sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. Surely this type of processing should work every time however the USB connection is configured.

I've got loads of different devices connected to my PC (and most of them through a USN hub) and, without exception (apart from the Blackberry), they all work every single time - no trouble.

If you're trying to do upgrades through your USB hub, that's where your issue lies. USB hubs are known to cause issues with BB devices.

As mentioned above, plug the BB directly into the PC and do not use a hub.

Thanks for the advice about the evils of ESB hubs, but my point is about the inconsistency of the way that Blackberrys - and only Blackberrys - interface with PCs.

In my experience, they are unique in having interface problems, whether or not connected through a hub. I have never (ever!) had any problems connecting any other device through a hub - only the Blackberry. And the Blackberry works fine 70% of the time through the hub, but it will then just suddenly fail to synchronise and the log shows it has hiccuped at one calender entry or one change to an address.

Then I re-boot the PC or reload (or repair) the software and off we go again quite happily.

This type of synchronisation is an extremely unsophisticated type of data transfer by today's standards and no other palmtop or handheld ever has any such problems.

So what is it about the Blackberrys - why are they so fussy?
