Re: Cannot set up playbook, no country appears to select from

I had the same issue. Everytime i reset PB starting to Country, but if you swipe the tablet you go on previous page and  you can set up again the wifi. (If you can remove password from your router is better)

Sorry for my english.

Re: Cannot set up playbook, no country appears to select from

I echo the last one regarding swiping back to wireless menu, that took me a while to realise!


Also for some reason between first setup and second I had to tick 'Hidden SSID" Even though I'd set the wifi to broadcast. Weird but working now so I won't complain.

Re: Cannot set up playbook, no country appears to select from

Does this video show the problem ?




check replies for the fixes...


1 - For some reason, some units will not access the user agreement when connected to a personal Wi-Fi network. If you are experiencing this problem, go to a public hotspot and download the agreement. Once the agreement is downloaded, the software update can be made from any Wi-Fi network, even a smartphone setup.




2 - Fire up your Blackberry Desktop manager. Plug in your Playbook.

Now turn off your playbook by pressing the power button on the top. Once your playbook is turned off. Power it back on without unplugging the device. You will then get an error message, hit the update option. The BB Desktop Manager will find an 'unbrick' update. Let it do its thing (30 min or so). Once the playbook is update it will reboot. Once it reboots, follow the prompts! Enjoy your new toy!!!

Re: Cannot set up playbook, no country appears to select from

Help I have tried this

Option 2 - it just says sorry you have not finished setup yet, please disconnect device and complete setup.  HELP, I cannot finish setup because there is no country to select on my Playbook.
