Update 5

From what I read it seems the update is causing more problems than improvements.

  Should one download the update? or is it better to leave things the way they are

My 8530 is out of service at the repair depot, kept loading and shutting off,

Did I make a mistake buying a Blackberry?? Only had it a month and a half.

Also how much music should one synch into the blackberry at one time??? Thanks Jack Greer

That's a pile of questions.

 

Yes.

No.

No.

As much as you desire or that your media card can handle.

 

The OS 5 upgrade is totally a personal decision. I've have no problem with it.

Your 8530 loading and cutting off is a simple software issue that could be sovled with loading a new OS.

Re: Update 5

Please explain in detail what you mean "loading and shutting down".

I'd then recommend  to use JL_Cmder to wipe the device and subsequently load the OS to the device. Follow the instructions here:

Re: Update 5

The unit shows the bar loading in the middle of the screen  as it usually does when turning on

the fone, but upon reaching the other side, the red light comes on instead of green light and the unit shuts off and starts all over again,

The screen showing screensaver never comes on at all. Thanks Jack

That's a software problem.

 

If your BlackBerry stays powered off with a black screen, follow the instructions below. The only indication of life might be the blinking red LED light in the top corner. Nothing seems to wake it up and Desktop Manager doesn't recognize any device is connected.

1) Make sure you have Blackberry Desktop Manager installed.
http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/desktop/
2) On your PC, go to Start > Run and copy and paste the following line exactly (meaning with the quotation marks):

"c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader\loader.exe" /nojvm

3) The Application Loader Wizard will appear -- click "Next."
4) In the "Connection:" drop-down menu, you should see "USB-PIN: UNKNOWN". Click the "Next" button.
5) You should then see a list of applications ready to be installed for your Blackberry. Hit Next and Finish and you are well on your way to getting your Blackberry back to life. Congrats! Just don't disconnect anything and let the lengthy process finish completely.

NOTE: If you do not see a list of applications mentioned in step 5 and instead see the message "The Blackberry Desktop Software does not have Blackberry Device Software for the device that you have connected to the computer. Contact your wireless service provider or system administrator," then you must download Blackberry's Operating System for your carrier and device.

Just select the appropriate carrier and network type, select your Blackberry model from the list and download the latest version. Install this download and follow the above steps again and you should be on the right path.
