if problem exists, then i think it is software issue.
I used the BB headphone that came with my phone to listen to songs on my BB9700. When i finished i plugged it out.
This morning i noticed when i receive a call that the phone will show an icon as if the the headphone is still plugged on and it will go off (i.e. back to handset mode). Whenver the icon for the headphone comes on i wont hear the caller but when it goes off iw ill hear the caller. It is really upsetting.
I have pulled out the battery to reset and put it back but the problem persists.
Please can you help me?
I want to set up my yahoo account in my blackberry & also my office email account. Can I do it without the black berry services. I just want to do it manually like I can do it in my nokia or htc.Please tell me yes or no? & if possible the process as well.
I have 2 problems..on my husband's BB he receives the lil email icon but he can't view the email, meaning when u open the msg icon on home screen there's no email msg..
On my BB, I've set up my email, which is hotmail, but I still don't receive any mails..
Otherwise this is an amazing phone! Loving every minute of it

because of this i am facing problems with my BB.
better if i took it from the carrier it self,,,,
i will try to sell mine & will get one from the carrier.
cos i call the carrier and they told me : if you buy from us , you will get access to many application which is impossible to access if you buy from other dealers or agents.....( power of Technology)
will give u feedback soon
BB, 18 Apr 2010Dear JRF,,, Good Day,,, well, do you have any idea if there is deffrences if i buy thr b... moreThe main difference is that when you buy one directly from a carrier it comes witht the settings already set in and ready for use with the carrier's network. It comes locked to them so you can't use it with another SIM card unless you unlock it. If you buy it unlocked or directly from RIM it will need to be set up properly for it to work with your carrier. You can do it yourself or they should do it free if you need them to. I would recommend buying directly from a carrier due to warranty and setup issues, because I don't like have to setup everything that should be automatically there.

I don't know if there is an application to solve this missing in BB.
Hi, i would like to find out if the bb9700 has the functionality to send a business card and if i can take off the sms threading???

Thanks to you again...

Don't worry, you will only get the account updated on the device. This may delete what you've sent but it will allow you to use the account as easy and quick as yahoo or gmail (with enhanced plugin). When I added my accounts I didn't lose anything because it was the first time I added them, so I didn't have anything to lose.
also, it says: (If you switch to the Microsoft Mobile Services Protocol, you will not be able to perform some actions on email messages that are already on your device, including replying to and forwarding email messages and viewing attachments.
You cannot return to using POP after you switch to the Microsoft Mobile Services Protocol.)
So i will loss some features..am I???

coldpower27, 17 Apr 2010I will have to agree. You could use a BB for fun and entertainment, and you can use an iPhone ... moreExactly. I agree with both Coldpower27 and Blackberrian.
And as Colpower27 puts it; in essence
Blackberry = Business
iPhone = Entertainment
blackberrian, 16 Apr 2010actually it depends on what u want mostly dude..both of them have their own ability,their own ... moreI will have to agree. You could use a BB for fun and entertainment, and you can use an iPhone for business.
However in general, BB are more preferred as a business tool as it's focus is on the free instant messaging, which business users need alot, rather then playing music or video. With an actual keyboard texting is much easier, then say texting on a touchscreen.
BB IM allows you to IM anyone in the world with a BB without extra data charges. In order to do that on the iPhone you need to pretty much have a Data Plan, as not many plans allow for International Texting. Or in general you gotta pay extra.
iPhone is preferred for entertainment due to how it interacts with video/audio. For Audio iTunes and Coverflow works really well on iPhone/iPod Touch platform, and makes it really easy to see what song is playing the cover art, flip through your albums etc etc. You also have an App to access youTube so you can play videos there.
The screen on the BB is decent, but isn't as good as the 3.0 or higher screens on the touchscreen based smartphones more geared towards multimedia.
