Re: Unable to bridge 8900 with Playbook



I had the same issue with my 8900 and ended up calling their support line. It took them 90 minutes to resolve this issue as we had to delete everything on my BB and load in the latest software update which ended up messing up all of my apps and settings. However, the bridge connection did get fixed!

Re: Unable to bridge 8900 with Playbook

First delete the existing Playbook tablet from your Blackberry bridge.


Then you need to do is just do the Power Restart of your phone.


And after  that try doing the same simple procedure for Birdging.


it will be done!
