Re: Error 80003 blackberry identity update needed

Hey Sanders,

 

Thanks for responding so quickly.  I found another way of ascertaining BB model and OS version.  All you do is go to BBM.  In the message field type "myver" then hit space bar - it automatically comes up.  Mine is 9300/5.0.0.977 (friend of mine who used to work for BB told me this - quite nifty I thought Smiley Happy

 

I also solved Error 80003 with your suggestion - went with option 3.  Thank you!

Yep, that "myver" is a nifty little thing to remember, glad you got it solved.

 

Good luck.

Re: Error 80003 blackberry identity update needed

Anna, please Do a simple reboot on the BlackBerry in this manner: With the BlackBerry device POWERED ON, remove the battery for a minute, and then reinsert the battery to reboot. A reboot in this manner is prescribed for most glitches and operating system errors, and you will lose no data on the device doing this.

 

Now, try the suggestions above, again.
