Re: Blackberry 7230

You do realize the 7230 has been end of line for about eight years?

 

Try using an older version of Desktop Manager, something of v4 or so.

 

Earlier versions of the Desktop Software are located here:

Re: Blackberry 7230

Tried that ,but the site keeps telling me that my Phone Number is Incorrect, It`s not, I took it from the Phone, and Yeh I know that it`s an old model, but then so am I. To me this is cutting edge technology

What site tells you that?

 

Also, what is it that you're trying to do once connected to the Desktop Manager?
