Help Please!!!!
 
I own a 8700g and its been fine until now.

My USB connection broke... or doesnt seem to work anyway, and I cannot recharge my device or back it up.

I installed the Desktop Manager to my PC and couldnt connect via USB.

I installed PocketMAC on my Macbook so I could sync via BlueTooth but no luck either. Apparently BlueTooth only works with BB on a PC.

I went out an bought a bluetooth adapter for my PC and after 2 hours of troubleshooting I discovered that unless the bluetooth on the PC is a native windows device it will not work either.

Please help! Does anyone have any suggestions how I can back up my 340+ contact and content on my device before the battery dies completely???

Please let me know ASAP

When I purchased my Bluetooth adapter I too was disappointed to find out that the Bluetooth option in the Desktop Manager would only work with the Microsoft Bluetooth stack, meaning I would have to have a Bluetooth device that had native Windows drivers.

Then I found a web site that shows how to add your Bluetooth's device information to Windows' bth.inf file. That way Windows will think there is a native driver, and install the Microsoft Bluetooth stack.

The web site is here: Sheer Boredom - Getting Bluetooth To Work

Hope this helps you get your Bluetooth device working.

Have you tried recharging from the AC adapter?

If your cable is hosed, which is moderately unlikely, any replacement cable should work.

What version of Desktop Manager do you have installed? Try installing the latest version (4.2)

Thanks for the help! i took it to a repair shop this morning and they fixed it for $70. They just needed to solder my USB jack.

Glad I got it fixed!

Does your PIN appear at the bottom of the Desktop Manager and does it say "connected" at the bottom?
If not--unplug and battery pull to reboot your BlackBerry. Close and reopen DM.
Is your BlackBerry plugged via USB Directly to the PC, NOT through a USB hub?

Any luck?
