You can rectify the White screen problem yourself. You need to reload the OS. Download the OS from BB site and then disconnect the battery connect it to computer via USB and start reloading the OS. Midway you will have to repop the battery. There are number of articles online on how to do this. Search on NUKED BLACKBERRY and you will know what to do.

You can first try by re-loading the software. Check online there are many sites which give you the steps on how re-load the OS. If that doesnt work it should be they battery point problem.
My bold 9780 restarts again and again it being 7 days its reboots on its own and am really fed up with my bb its reboots mainly while am on a phone call am I mild user have inbuilt apps and whatsapp .. I did wiping for more than 5 times but still its the same .. It works properly only when I keep my bb on charging or usb .. Can any 1 help me what is the actual problem with my bb .. Is it with software battery or my carrier .. Please hellp experts in a big trouble .... :(
I have had mine for just over a year now, and it is currently sitting at home as I have not been able to use it for the last six days. this is because it is the second time the screen has broken. It has the "white screen of death" which is a common blakberry error, but I've asked around and many of many friends have never experienced this whilst this has happened to me twice.
Without insurance it costs £90 to repair which is only to fix a slight error but which prevents you from using the phone at all.
I'm now looking at getting another model of blackberry for the rest of my contract before I upgrade to an iphone, as this model is unreliable, with poor battery.
Statistically speraking, 1 in 3 of these models of blackberry is likely to experience this annoying error.
I had this device , its good and reasonable !
I only loved this device for the battery backup and the camera ONLY !
But when it comes to speed , its a total failure !
It lagged a lot and especially when using the browser !
It was really making me angry ! And I sold it right away !
And bought the 9900 which was the best BB I've ever used !
It has a decent battery (it depends on your usage) and a very pleasing performance !
Its truelly amazing !
Plz guys take my advice and don't buy the bold 9780 !
Buy the 9790 or the 9900 they are stunning devices :D
Sagar Parkhe, 22 Oct 2012How do i use internet from BB to connect to my lappy ..??? Its sad that it does not have WI-FI... moreInstall "Blacberry Desktop Software" on your laptop and you can use your Bold as a modem for internet connection.Alternatively,if you have wifi on your laptop,install "Bzeek" on it and you can use your laptop as a Wifi Hotspot.
happy, 02 Nov 2012hey,can we connect it to PC?????Yes you can connect it to your pc and even use it as a modem for your pc to connect to the internet.Must have Blackberry Desktop Software installedon your pc.
Hi, I'm using this model currently. What can I say is, this is the best BB model i has been used so far. No laging, and very smooth with the internal memory, and also good quality of 5.0MP camera.
