Smile 8700 network time fault (fixed !)

Please Login to Remove!

Hopefully this post help some else who experiences the same clock problem.

My ancient (but still great) 8700 blackberry developed a glitch where the clock time ran slow even though the network and blackberry times were still fine. The handset clock appeared to have stopped updating?? I had done the usual remove-the-battery-trick but problem persisted. I looked through the various forums to see if there was any solutions. I did not find any, but I did read in one thread that when you take the battery out you should wait at least 30 seconds before re-installing. I though this was worth a shot as I knew I had only waited a few seconds before re-installing the battery.

Anyways, amazingly this cured the clock fault !! yay !. I am back in business. Good old blackberry, keep on rolling on...

Yes, 30+ seconds is important. For what it's worth, in some rare instances it may take a second or third battery pull to correct an issue. It's been known to happen.

The 8700 was a great device. It's in my top three.
