Newby for I hour and software

I just got it and it's being charged. Unlike most others there's no indication except for the flashing green light. Will it say when it's fully charged?

I'm about to install the Manager (Ver 6.7.3-2010e for windows 2000/xp/Vista 32/64 bit). I see users loading 4.5/6. how old are those versions?

Also is there anything on BB User Tools cd that I will need?

Thanks for any help.

Hi and welcome to the forums!

Watch the battery indicator under the date. You can also go to  OPTIONS STATUS and see what %the battery is charged too.

What Desktop manager are you loading version 4.6 is the latest, but I have no experience with it. ver 4.5 is very stable for me. Ver 4.5 is recent.

I don't have the User tools Cd in from of me, so someone else will have to answer that question.

Thanks,

There should be a lightning bolt looking thing next to your battery indicator that shows its charging. Also you can go to options and click on status that will tell you your battery level.

My Cd says Ver 6.7.3-2010e for Win 2000/xp/Vista 32/64- bit. How can 4.6 be the latest. I'm confused.

My BB is off with a dark screen. I've always charged my phones in the OFF state.

Am I doing it wrong?

Wait 5 hours, and turn it on and check!. If it's a lithium battery the recommendation is a full charge, and then use till amost drained to condition the battery.

Hope this helps!

Re: Newby for I hour and software

Fkess the desktop manager and the blackberry operating system are two very different things. Hence the different version numbers.

The green light stayed on longer and longer as it flashed until it was on constantly (like my otheer devices).

Took about 1.5 hrs to fully charge
