Blackberry 9670 email accounts button under set up wont open

I just started using my BB 9670 flip phone again after about a year using another phone.  I have an email set up on my BB already, but I'm wanting to set up another email, but when I go to setup then click on email accounts, the button won't open.  Why is this??  What do I need to do to get this to work again.  Thanks for any help!!  cindy

Re: Blackberry 9670 email accounts button under set up wont open

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

With a strong carrier network signal (e.g., not merely WiFi), I suggest the following steps, in order, even if they seem redundant to what you have already tried (steps 1 and 2 each should result in a message coming to your BB...please wait for that before proceeding to the next step):

1) Register HRT

  • KB00510 How to register a BlackBerry smartphone with the wireless network
  • Please wait for one "registration" message to arrive to your Messages app

2) Resend Service Books (pre-BB10 devices only)

  • KB02830 Send the service books for the BlackBerry Internet Service
  • Please wait for "Activation" Messages, one per already configured email account, to arrive in your Messages. If you have no already configured email accounts, please wait 1 hour.

3) Reboot

  • Pre-BB10 Devices ONLY. 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.
  • BB10 Devices. Hold the top button down until the counter reaches zero. Wait for the device to be fully shut down (e.g., nothing at all displayed on the screen, no LED lights, etc.). Hold the top button until the red LED is lit. Wait through the full boot-up process. IF this fails, you can attempt the battery-pull method above, but it is normally NOT recommended unless nothing else works.
  • 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.

Hopefully that will get things going again for you! If not, then you might have better luck with, from your BB Browser, this URL:

Or, if your carrier has a BIS website, using that via PC/browser.

 

Otherwise, you should contact your mobile service provider for formal support, and to be sure that you are still subscribed to an adequate data plan to enable this service.

Good luck!
