This is my second blackberry curve 8530 and they both have the same problem, they won't play videos. They use to but now when I go to like you tube, or nothingtoxic.com, or even my video recordings it won't play it says an error has occurred media attempt failed. I use to restart my BB and that would help for a lil while now it doesn't work at all. How do I fix this?
When syncing my BB to desktop Outlook calendar with new appointments by USB cable, the appointment time on the BB is exactly one hour later than when its scheduled in Outlook. So, an appt for 10:00 am on my desktop shows as 11:00 am on my BB. Its true whether the appt was entered on my BB or in Outlook calendar. I currently use Outlook 2007 on my desktop with Windows XP, have BB Curve 8530 Version 5.0 with Verizon and use BB desktop software version 18.104.22.168.
i've looked around recently to try to find an answer to why my blackberry curve 8530 will not play videos, and nothing i've read seems to work. when try to play a Internet video, one of the following 3 errors occurs: 1) "the device media processor is busy." 2) "an error has occured attempting to play media." 3) the screen changes from different shades of black, and no media plays.
I just downloaded the new OS when I plugged my phone to the computer... it sounded like a good idea to upgrade everything but I do not like how the UNlock function is only through the mute button now. I mean, if I wanted to just lock/unlock my phone that way with the push of only one button, I could use the standby (mute) button and press on it again to unlock it before. I really liked the previous version where you had to take the extra step of pushing two buttons (A and Send) to unlock it. Because I unlock my phone by accident a lot when it's in my purse and I reach for something and accidentally press the top button (mute button). Any ideas if Blackberry is planning on a new OS version soon that would restore the old locking/unlocking system? I do not necessarily want to downgrade to a previous OS version but I might have to as the "easy" one-button only unlocking option is not working for me.
I have a Curve 8530 and might be upgraping to the Tour. My question is, I have backed up my Curve on my pc using the BB Desktop Magager. Will I be able to restore all my phone contacts, bbm contacts, pics, music, etc from the Curve to the Tour using that back up? Or are they not compatable?
When synchronizing my Blackberry Curve 8530, the "error code 0x8004ffff" appears. All of the contacts on my BB Curve are gone.I had synched the BB Curve with MS Outlook 2010. I have up to date software for the desktop and device. Earlier I had followed instructions to deal with error code 0x80040fb3. The sync had been interrupted by empty email 1 and not empty email 2. The instructions fixed the sync and the error code went away.Now "error code 0x8004ffff" appears. I wonder if the BB Curve is looking for an address file "default" while the Outlook contact file has another name? Only I do not know how to find out the Outlook contact file name.How do I get my contacts to sync with the BB Curve again?
I looked around, and have not found an answer to my problem. I want to stream online radio from a website. It says that it is compatible with any mobile device with a windows media player capable player. Media sync does not appear to be the solution. Here is the website in question: Chiefs Radio Network Listen Live Is it even possible to do this with a blackberry?
I've tried things on the internet, but no success.I've installed an app and remove from BB which doesn't remove icon. Some say the BB has to be Rebooted to clean up left over things. I find this unusual that a normal user wouldn't know how to uninstall apps properly especially having to reboot.I want to be able to restart (reboot) my BB without pulling the battery. BlackBerry Curve 8530 OS version 22.214.171.1244
On my Sprint 8530, the "set alarm" function in the clock icon does not respond. All the other choices in this icon respond. When I select set alarm, I just get the clock.
Hey everyone, I'm a new Curve 8530 user with sprint and have had my 8530 for about 6 days now and I just happened too look down at the screen while it was locked and the bottom left corner is full of dust on the inside.... Has anyone else seen this on the 8520/30 yet? Is it difficult to get a replacement device?
I updated my phone the other day with the v126.96.36.1994 OS. It wiped out everything. I had to go back and restore my contacts, reload ringtones and apps, etc. Got everything back the way it was now. I have three email accounts synced to it. All are active, Wi-fi on, network on. New mail isn't showing up on my handset, only from my gmail account, the hotmails aren't showing up. Used to be you could look in the folder for each email account and see what emails were there, then there was one folder that showed all of them. What am I missing?
OMG I got rid of my bb 8530 for a samsung moment and its x100000 better! High points Webkit browser Lots of free apps FAST GREAT screen Good UI Cons Funny keyboard Deletes #'s if but in the wrong way
When i want to lock my Blackberry curve 8530 i just press the A key. But when i want to unlock, the message shows up to press the MUTE botton. I have a plastic case on it, so everytime I go to press the Mute buton, I have to take the case off. Now my fiance has the same exact phone, and when he wants to unlock, the message says to press the A key with the send/call key.
Im thinking of switching carriers and want to try something new... i kind of like the curve 8530 on the sprint network. i currently have the tour on vzw.... the question is should i the curve worth getting or should i just hold off for the tour2/new bold?
BB Newbie here, just got the Curve 8530 yesterday.My question (sorry if its already been answered in a previous thread, I can't find one): How do I make it save user names and passwords for logging in to secure web sites? We upgraded to the BB so that we could accept new orders on the fly, but the log in page for our client does not save the user name and password, and we have to type it in each time; it can mean the difference between getting the order or losing it to another vender.
I have a Blackberry Curve 8530 with v5.0.xx installed. I just setup my Gmail IMAP on my BB and when I read a message on my BB it doesn't show as read on my computer and visa versa.
I had a Samsung Entro with over 250 contacts and recently switched to a Curve 8530. I am trying to transfer my contact list from the Entro to the BB. I tried pairing the devices and was successful but when I tried the transfer with the BB, I can only transfer one contact and it keeps transferring the same one. Does anyone know how to transfer all the contacts at once?
I have the BB Curve 8530. A long time ago this once worked and I had 126 contacts on my cell and in outlook. 2 crashed laptops later I have never been successful to get those 126 contacts back in Outlook. I have 2 email accounts set up on my Blackberry. I have tried deleting the service book, deleting and reinstalling the BB Desktop Software and it will only sync the contacts from my gmail account (26 entries) and not the one from my verizon (126 entries)
I have BB Curve 8530 with two different email addresses going to my phone. One provider's emails will delete in my online mailbox, but the other will not.I don't want to have to delete emails twice, from BB and online.
When i go into the Media file, go to ringtones and select my ringtones, it wont show the tones that are on my memory card. It did until i set up desktop manager and then i dont know what i did but they dont show. I know they are there because i did a hard reset and pulled the battery, also removed the media card, when it scanned i saw it show all the ringtones then watched em all come off. how can i fix this to be able to view them?
I guess because I have FaceBook on my 8530 curve FB started an online phone book and pasted all my Blackberry #'s on line even those not on FB.I read how to remove them and it said I had to de-sync BB.I looked on my BB and saw nothing about sync.I just got on FB to msg my kids now all my business contacts are on.FB thinks they own the world!
I specifically use my media player, and slacker radio through my chatterbox xbi2 bluetooth on my helmet while riding. About a month ago, I had my blackberry plugged into my truck via headphone jack, and the song volume kept reseting itself about 3 bars lower than max. I changed NOTHING. Since that day, I've had the same issue when streaming my music through my chatterbox via bluetooth with both media player, and slacker. Normal phone speaker seems to work.
The problem is with bb curbe 8530, when i play songs the media player stops after playing single song. i have to click next to play another one every time. there is a sign of repeat and may be shuffle but unclickable.
I am using curve 9320 blackberry handset. I found a new type of problem while using the data transfer via Bluetooth (BTh). If I wish to transfer the data to the sama model i.e. 9320 to 9320 it works fine but as soon as i wish to transfer the data from my 9320 to BB curve 8520 the data transferred failed. On the same time the data from 8520 BB curve to 9320 is nicely transferred on my curve 9320.
I am having trouble when I put videos on or download a video from e-mail. It says I don't have the proper format to play the video, I hear sound but no visual.
Quick question. I am starting a new Job and they are getting me a superbasic Perl. I need this for work and so I will be forking some dough out of my pocket to get one of the two following phones: Bold 9000 (I'll pay 100$ Canadian, not Us) Curve 8530 (pay 24.99$ Canadian). I am very used to the Iphone and HTC Touch Pro 2 (not trying to start a flaming/argument/anything else , its just what i'm used to). I am very used to browsing with the other phones and I have heard that BB phones are not up to par, so my expectations will be low. Out of the two phones however, does one perform better than the other (Curve 8530 vs Bold 9000)? Out of the two phones, which one do you recommend overall. I have read that the Bold 9000 even though it is older, it still outperforms the 8530...
I just had this new BB 8530 for a few hours from the Verizon store. I love it and it seems have a lot better than my old BB 8330. Got home, I plug the BB 8530 to the computer, using BB Desktop Manager to transfer my contacts and calendar, then it just kept on booting for hours and hours.
I haven't been able to use the media player in my 8320 BB Curve. That night, I was listening to a broadcast via the MLB Gameday Mobile audio player. Some sort of glitch occurred during the game and resulted in an error in the Media Player. Ever since, no web site audio will play in the Media Player; the BB tries to open web sites in Media Player, but it always results in an error message. Any advice is welcome.
I have a blackberry tour as well as a curve 8530/20 for verizon. I have trapster downloaded on both my tour and my curve from blackberry app world. On my tour it connects and everything works fine. On my curve it constantly is looking for a connection and it wont follow me. I have gps set location on under options and did everything I think i need to get it to work.
I have a Blackberry Curve 8530 Smartphone, and would like to block a specific phone number from calling me.How can I do that?
I have this issue where everytime I connect my BB Curve 8520 to my laptop using the USB cable, for some strange reason my laptop unable to read the memory card in the device. So I'm unable to transfer all my media data from my BB to my laptop. However, I still can back up my BB contact, update my BB OS and make changes to my BB using the BB Desktop Manager.

THIS UPDATE IS SHOCKING! What were blackberry thinking? Does anybody know how i can get back to my old version? I mean you cant even lock your keypad with this update, thats how bad it is! Any help would be much appreciated.
I purchased a brand new Verizon 8530 Curve off ebay and activated it on Page Plus. BIS/BB Maps/BB IM all worked for about two weeks then they got cut off. No biggie because I figured it would happen sooner or later so I downloaded Opera Mini for when I don't have a Wifi signal and the BB browser works when I do have one. What does bother me is that I cannot finalize a download of Google Maps nor the Gmail apps; whenever I try it says "failed to transmit." Can anyone tell me what feature of the handset was disabled so that I can't even download these and if there is a fix to it other than having to go to Verizon and activating it with them? This baffles me because my wife has an 8330 Curve activated on Page Plus too (no BIS or other BB features) but she was able to download Google Maps and Gmail apps on her phone.
I have already searched this topic in forum but did not find an answer for me.I have a BB Curve 8520 and I used to be able to watch youtube videos without any issues until a few days ago. I get this error message:An error has occured attempting to play media.I tried m.youtube.com, downloading your tube app, turining wifi off, taking battery off and restarting, optimization, nothing has worked.I am able watch the videos stored in my phone with no issues. I use TMobile.
my 8530 is set to turn off the backlight after 30 sec. When I am on the phone and disconnect my call when the screen is black, my screen comes on completely white - nothing on the screen just white. The only way to avoid this is wake up my phone before pressing the disconnect button. Once I get the white screen I have to wait till it goes back to black and then wake it up - then I get the regular home screen.
Does anyone know how to hide the previous messages with your sms messages? My screen has the history of every text message sent between me and the reciepient as if we are in a chat screen. On the curve 8330 all you had to do was go to options-sms-number of previous items and change the setting. Under the help option and in the user manual for the 8530 it says to follow those exact directions but for some reason that option is not available for me when I go to options-sms. I contacted my service provider Verizon and they stated the option isnt available on this model. So why would it be under the help menu on the phone. Can anyone help me I hate to read days and days of text messages between me and another person if I make a mistake and scroll up. All I want to do is see the previous text message in the new text message screen.
When i get a new email from yahoo, and check it on the BB and after I read the email and delete it, it will not show up on my yahoo email when I check on my laptop. But when i check my email for yahoo on my laptop, it still shows up on my BB and doesnt delete unless I personally delete it. Is there an option that when i check my email from my laptop that it will delete on my BB??
If i leave my phone unplugged overnight it will drop at least down 20 or 30 percent. The only apps that I have opened that possibly check the internet are facebook & my weather network app. I have the weather app set to check every hour. So how could it drop so fast? I also have wifi turned on but does that kill it that quickly?
I was wondering if I'm able to update my virgin mobile to the sprint final OS instead of the .601.. The .601 takes so long to load and everytime I turn my phone off and back on %5 of the battery disappears... Either it's my battery or the phone. But I just want to know if I could load the sprint OS instead of Virgin mobile. I just got my phone and it came with .601 but me not liking it.
I really want to get VM now because they have the 8530. I would really drop my pre+ for one of them especially since verizon is getting quite expensive. How's the service? Although the $300 are a bit of a pain I'm willing to pay it for a cheaper price service. I would greatly appreciate comments from current 8530 and VM users.
looking into switching from Verizon to VMUSA. I have the tour and really would like the wifi and trackpad instead of the ball. I already own the tether application and was wondering if tethering would work on this carrier? I read on one of the FAQs on the 8530 on the site that someone said they blocked tethering applications. I was just wondering how they can block a download or if that is even possible. If anyone has a VM 8530 that is tethering, let me know! If i can't tether, then I dont know if im gonna spend the 300 on the phone.
my 8530 will suddenly, and for no apparent reason, decide to restart itself. I haven't noticed a pattern as to when it does this, and it doesn't seem to be a regular interval. I'll have it sitting next to me on the table, and suddenly it lights up, shuts down, and starts back up, and carries on as if nothing happened.
I just got my Blackberry Curve 8530 about a week or so ago. I love it, but there is one problem - the battery life has diminished completely.I charge it overnight so that it's ready in the morning. So, here's a timeline to gauge it's life: I woke up at 6:30, unhooked it from an overnight charge.I got to work at 7, it was still almost full. Now it's 10:15AM and it's at 3/5 battery life. However, I've done almost NOTHING with it. I checked two e-mails, and the battery life was low prior to that.Is there anything I can/should do to conserve battery life? My Envy II had better battery life than this.
I've had my 8530 for a little over a month, every once in awhile after I end a call the screen goes blank but when I use the track pad the screen comes back in sections. After I use the track pad to scroll upper left then upper right the bottom right and bottom left the screen is normal. Has anyone else had this issue?
So, I had to replace my BB8530 with a like-new replacement after my LCD screen adhesive had dried, but now I'm stuck.See, I don't know how they did it, but when I first got my BB the salesman was able to easily sync my school email address to it, which is on a gmail server.(Kent State, for anyone interested/has it themselves) Could someone give me a walkthrough of how to do this on my own?(and yes, I looked at other threads before posting.)Also, I have Verizon's Backup Assistant, but it wont let me send all my contacts to this new phone. Anyone else have that problem/know how to fix it?
Is the 8530 gets 3g and if so how can I turn it on what on my screen now is 1xev on the back of the bb its says "qualcomm 3g cdma"
I have custom ringtones for several of my contacts, but when I receive text messages from these same contacts, there are only a small handful of them that the custom ringtone/alert works for, most of them just notify me using my default sms ringtone, does anyone know why this is? and does anyone know how or if it can be corrected?
I'm really annoyed right now.No matter what theme I use on my Sprint 8530 5.0 OS the active call/incoming call screen is the ugly default screen.Can somebody please tell me how to fix it or is plazmic working on the issue?It really sucks to have cool themes and this one screen is all jacked up.

My boss has a BB Curve 8530 and she wants to set it up to vibrate only in holster and ring outside of holster. Is this an option I can set up in Profiles? If so, do i have to adjust this option for every sound (i.e. MMS, e-mail, alerts, etc)?Or there an easy way to adjust these settings? I'm not very familiar with the BBs so please be gentle.
Using a BB 8530 Curve II from US Cellular OS v5.0. 0.337, and I would like to know if there is a way to make shortcuts other than bookmarks to links on the web?

I have a curve 8530. How do I change the icons on the home screen? Also, the messages icons, there are 2, one plain envelope and one envelope with a earth on it. Do the same messages from the earth one (which I assume means email) go into the plain envelope one which I think means ALL messages including BB PIN Messages? And then to other texts show up in the plain one?

I have a Curve 8530 on Telus (about 7 months old). It takes anywhere from 5-15 minutes for me to receive an email. My huband (9700 on Telus) has sent me an email and we timed it to take 14 minutes. I have 2 accounts on the BB - a corporate and a hotmail account, and the timing is the same for either. I have done a battery pull, backed up my phone and updated it - nothing works.

Can a Verizon-branded BB Curve 8530 be unlocked to use on a GSM Network such as T-Mobile? I really like the features on this model and want to buy one off of E-bay, but only if I can unlock it and use my current SIM card in it. I'd appreciate any help youse guys (and gals!) can give me.
i have a blackberry Curve 8530, ive had for about 8 months, and out of nowhere tooday i got the white screen of death. I've tried everything, from putting pressure on the corners of the screen, but i gave up. I just went to BB protect and backed up everything!

Why does my BB Curve 8530 keep shutting down every half hour or so? And of course, it takes 9 minutes for it to restart so I am missing calls and texts many times a day. Is it a software thing that can be fixed? I am not upgradeable for another 7 months, so I'm stuck with this phone

My wife has a curve 8530 with Verizon, and it wont turn on. All that is happening is the red led light is blinking over and over again. I tried a new battery and that didnt work. Anny suggestions.
Blackberry 8530, email enterprise activation won't work. I've discussed the problem with both Sprint and our IT department at work without resolving the issue. Both say it should be working. Sprint's latest suggestion is to exchange the phone for a new one. (Which would be my third phone in a week since first getting the 8520) It retries, then occasionally the screen pops up to say the enterprise server hasn't responded with the options to continue or cancel. I'll be heading to the Sprint store this afternoon to either exchange the device or get something completely different.
I am having an issue with my Curve 8520. I was using today and all of a sudden, it went blank on me. Now I try to boot it up again, even when its charging, and all I get is a flashing red light. It flashes 1 time, then it flashes 3 more times, some times faster, some times slower. Been looking for support (done the battery pull and everything) and ways to fix it, but don't find anything. Just have a black screen, its not detectable by the computer, and it only flashes red.
Ive got a big problem with my phone. It went dead last night and i tried to charge it with my pc and all i got was the red light. Once i got it to a wall charger the phone charged for a little booted and everything. It even accepted the txts i recieved while it was off. I leave the house for a couple hours i come back and the phone is off. When i plug the phone in nothing happens not even the yellow charge light. when i unplug the phone the red light comes on for a minute but the phone wont boot ive tried battery pulls and everything but the same thing happens everytime and i have no idea what to do. Ive never had this problem with any blackberry ive ever had.
hi just recently, the letter "a" on my 8520 wont respond and sometimes my trackpad will freeze on me. and if i leave any of my keys untouched for more than 20 seconds i would have to press down on a key to get a response from the phone. im running a .681 but ive only heard good things from it. any suggestions/ideas to whats causing the problem ?
so, my phones battery completely died. i left it charging all night, and when i go to turn it on, nothing!! whats the deal?
the problem started with the 8520 stop working... it will load then started to fade to white screen after using the app loader to restore the os the problem got worse... now even the app loader wont detect the blackberry it will detect for a second after batt removal then the app loader wont detect it anymore
So with my 8530 ill be texting my friend and then ill go to type my message and when i enter it sometimes it doesnt show up, and then sometimes if i try to scroll up to see the earlier messages and then try to scroll back down, it wont let me scroll all the way back down, so then i click back and then try to go into that chat with the person and it wont even let me in, and if it does it takes forever. tried a battery pull.
I am new to phone flashing i'd like to know if a sprint blackberry curve 8530 can be flashed to boost mobile.I was on the boost threads but i have not gotten any replies so maybe i can get answers here.Although i saw some instructions for other sprint blackberry phones but for the blackberry curve 8530 are very hard to flash.
My Blackberry froze on me 2days ago so i pulled the battery out and put it bak in but now it wont switch on at all..Nothing comes up, no white screen, no red light nothing.Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do or is it completly broken.
I am getting no video during Xvid video playback, but the sound plays back fine. This file played fine on my former Curve 8530, but not on my new Bold 9650.Is there something i am missing?
Starting today my music player has been randomly stopping during songs. I checked my memory card in another phone to make sure it wasn't the problem, and it wasn't. It also happens on the stock Blackberry Music. It will play for a minute tops, and then stop playing. The music player doesn't close, it's just like if I had pressed pause. Normally pressing the play/pause button at the top of the phone a few times will do the trick, but this is quite annoying. If I wait long enough the music will resume again. I also checked my device memory and it's not low at all, and this will happen as soon as the phone is on with only the mandatory programs running. Has anyone else experienced this or have any ideas what could be causing it? I've done a few battery pulls but I'm still having the same problem.
I used to be able to watch videos on youtube on my blackberry curve 8530 ALL the time. Then, one day I went to look up a video and its all, "Upgrade Adobe Flash Player". I click on the download link and it does nothing.
I synced songs from itune and ripped the ones that I could not sync. I got rid of itunes, and then migrated from my 8330 to my new 8530. The music came over to the new 8530 just fine. I cannot get the media files moved to my computer (not all of them anyway), and I cannot see the files on the BB or on my computer when it is connected in mass storage mode.
How do I know if I have a media card? I didn't buy one extra, but there is a little card in the back of my phone. Would one have come with it? I am trying to put music on my phone and am having a hard time and now I'm not sure I even have a media card. This is my first Blackberry and I have only had it about a month.
