Blackberry Curve 8520 problems with Blackberry Bridge

Hi All Please help me!!!


I have a curve 8520 details & spec below. I have owned a Blackberry Playbook since Feb this year. Originally when I installed the Blackberry Bridge to my curve I managed to pair the 2 devices and I happily used this for a few months. I think an update came on my phone in App World and one day a couple of months ago I simply couldn't pair the devices. I did the usual un-install and re-install of all necessary applications but to no avail. I have searched forum after forum to try and find out what is wrong. I can see the application on my curve from Appworld and from options/applications/Ad-ons. However is is not visible on the phone in downloads or applications. I have un-installed and re installed numerous times.

Re: Blackberry Curve 8520 problems with Blackberry Bridge

Hello campocath, 


Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

Are you able to see the BlackBerry Bridge application icon on your device home screen? If not, have you checked to see if it is hidden? You can press the menu button and select show all to unhide it. If you are able to locate it, try moving the BlackBerry Bridge application icon to the applications folder. Use this link http://blck.by/1g0TgHg to see instructions on page 197 on how to move application icons to a folder.

Let us know if that helps.

Thank you
