Re: Blackberry Bold 9930 Died and Cannot be Restored -- Has Anyone Else Had This Happen?

I'm assuming that, like mine, your phone bricked after charging -- and displayed that slowly blinking red light.  I'm also assuming you purchased it through your carrier.  If those assumptions are true, then I suggest that you go to your carrier and request that they replace the phone.  The failure that we are discussing is now a recognized defect in this phone (or in the Operating System for this phone) -- RIM has admitted as much --  and, in my opinion, the carrier  should replace it regardless of when you purchased it.

Re: Blackberry Bold 9930 Died and Cannot be Restored -- Has Anyone Else Had This Happen?

Well, after upgrading to OS 7,1. I charged my Bold last night overnight (although not from a fully depleted battery) and woke up to a working phone.  Charging overnight again tonight.  

 

One complication I experienced after upgrading is that a couple of days afterwards, the Enterprise Blackberry activation disappeared - just wiped out.  Had to contact my IT department to get another activation password to activate it again today.  Pulled the battery and it stuck.  Will report any other oddities I may encounter.

 

Has anyone else done the upgrade?

Did your phone kept rebooting all the time. i tried installing the update but it does not work due to the fact that the phone keeps rebooting and the update cant beinstalled if the phone is not on

Re: Blackberry Bold 9930 Died and Cannot be Restored -- Has Anyone Else Had This Happen?

Well everyone, after trying and trying for about a month on fixing my bb in every single way possible, today it came back to LIFE!!!! it looks like bb released a fix after all.

 

I did the following:

 

1. Connected my bb without the battery.

2. Opened blackberry desktop software

3. Update

4. When trying to reconnect to jvm I inserted the battery and hit retry a couple of times

 

and Done.

 

I hope this helps.
