Bold 9780 Screen Broken

Hi everyone,

I have a blackberry bold 9780 and i recently broke the screen, I dont have money right now to buy a new bb or to fix the screen and i still need to use my bb daily. I was wondering if there is any way that i can turn on bluetooth on my phone manually (direct keyboard commands) or software programs that can turn it on remotely as i cant see what im doing on the screen. If i can turn it on then i can access my text messages and internet through my Blackberry bridge, since i have a playbook as well. Or if there is a way i can connect an external display and operate it when needed in that way. Thanks any help is greatly appreciated and i thank you in advance. Thanks Mark

Hey markymarkwahlberg,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Thanks for the question.


Currently there is no keyboard shortcuts to turn on Bluetooth®.  You can still backup your data on a PC and restore it to another BlackBerry® smartphone.


But without seeing the screen you will not be able to enable Bluetooth or connect to BlackBerry® Bridge™.


Let me know if you have any more questions.
