i have an issue with my blackberry 8330 and i cant do anything on it and i was wondering how to do a system reset when cant make anything work on my phone
Hi and Welcome to the Forums!
Well, there are few different things that you could mean by "system reset"...here are a few choices:
Anytime random strange behavior or sluggishness creeps in, the first thing to do is a battery pop reboot. With power ON, remove the back cover and pull out the battery. Wait about a minute then replace the battery and cover. Power up and wait patiently through the long reboot -- ~5 minutes. See if things have returned to good operation. Like all computing devices, BB's suffer from memory leaks and such...with a hard reboot being the best cure.
From a PC, you can install any OS package to a BB via this procedure:
Note that while written for "reload", it can be used to upgrade, downgrade, or reload -- it all depends on the OS package you download and install to your PC. You can even use a different carriers OS package by simply inserting, between steps 1 and 2, the deletion, on your PC, of a file named VENDOR.XML. Be sure that you remove, from your PC, any other BB device OS packages as having more than one installed to the PC can cause conflicts with this procedure.
If you are on MAC, you are limited to only your carriers sanctioned OS packages...but can still use any levels that they currently sanction. See this procedure:
Good luck and let us know!

Pulling the battery to restart ur device seems such a pain. Easier way to restart ur BB is to press ALT key and right SHIFT key and DEL/Backspace key at the same time. Keep pressing all the three keys till screen goes off.
