problems downloading music onto my blackberry curve 8520

Hi
I have problems when it comes to downloading music onto my bb 8520. Every time I try to download a song from whatever site, it will go really slow, and eventually around 20% then it will say download failed. My boyfriend also has had this problem for about 2 months now. Does anyone know what I can do about this please?

Re: problems downloading music onto my blackberry curve 8520

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

There are many posts with exactly your issue. Many have lodged formal support tickets with their mobile service provider, and have been told that it's a network congestion issue. Blame has though shifted between the mobile service providers and RIM. So, the best way for this to receive adequate attention is for all who suffer it to open a formal support ticket with their mobile service provider.

 

Good luck!

Re: problems downloading music onto my blackberry curve 8520

Hello jacob3,

Well, let's see...who do you pay for your services? You don't pay BlackBerry, do you? No, you pay MTN. As such, they are also 100% responsible for all of your formal service-related support...and this issue is definitely service related. So, as I said above, you need to contact them, for they are responsible for your services and support on this issue.

Further, as a user-to-user community, no one here has any access to anything "behind the scenes" to look at and try to help. We'd like to, but formal support is just not the purpose of this site.

Good luck!

Re: problems downloading music onto my blackberry curve 8520

Ohhhh...so it is a service restriction on your contract with MTN. OK, that explains it then. And there's no way around that!

So, then you are left with seeking alternative methods...the simplest to me being downloading what you want to your computer, and then transferring it to your BB via Mass Storage Mode.

Good luck!
