I tried to flash it and there was an error restoring data... now I have a monochrome screen, with text-only options (which are "options", "phone", "messages", and "settings") and when it goes into locked mode, I nolonger have a "NEXTEL" banner or logo. It doesn't even display signal strength or battery... When I press alt-escape, all that's running is "Phone", "messages", and "java console".
The worst part, though... I cant get it to connect to the desktop manager to restore! the device manager recognizes it, but BB desktop wont log in! I tried running the installer again, but it goes through it's paces and says it's successfully installed, and quits, no change to my BB!
I've tried everything, and I Cant connect to my BB. It will still place and recieve calls, but it's silent... so the device is worthless now... I may try calling Nextel tomorrow (I've alrady gone to their store and they're clueless about BBs) but since i'm the second owner I doubt they'll be able to do anything...
I'm watching another BB, the 7520, on eBay... trying to decide wheather to buy it or just look for a iden->axim datacable and thumbpad for my PDA and forget about BBs... my experiance has been a very mixed one and I'm teetering back and forth, trying to decide which rout to take, since my 7510 seems to have become an emergancy-only-phone-slash-paperweight now...
BB 7510 (iDEN), with Boost Mobile (Nextel) W Unlimited Data - No BB serviceplan and I still get unlimited inet browsing! All for app $10 a month!
