    006 Help, my BlackBerry cannot send or receive email.

    Advertisement



    If your BlackBerry cannot send or receive email, follow the steps below in the order given to determine the problem.

    Check the signal strength

    To make sure that you are in a place with a strong enough signal for BlackBerry communication, click the Options icon, then click Status.

    In the "Signal" field, verify that the value is above -100Bm. If the signal is less than -100Bm (e.g., -105Bm), then the signal strength in your area is too weak for normal functions. If your signal is stronger than -100Bm (e.g., -90Bm), continue troubleshooting.
    Verify that you are in a coverage area where email transmission is supported

    Note: This step does not apply to older models (85x/95x/5810), as they could not connect to different networks. If these older devices have signal strength, then they should be able to send and receive email. If you use one of these older BlackBerries and have signal, but still cannot send and receive email, skip to the next troubleshooting step.

    The network status indicator for Cingular should be "GPRS" (models 6280 and 7280). "GPRS" should be capitalized. Following is a table of network status indicators for Cingular:




    The network status indicator for Verizon should be "1X" (models 6750 and 7750). In "1X", the "X" should be as large as the "1". Following is a table of network status indicators for Verizon:




    If your network status indicates email is not supported in your area, you must move to a location where email is supported. If your network status indicates email support, but you still cannot send or receive email, continue troubleshooting.


    Check the date and time Esp. BES

    Click the Options icon, then click Date/Time.

    If the date and time are incorrect, fix them, and then test to see if you can send or receive email. If the date and time are correct, or if you have problems after fixing them, continue troubleshooting.

    Reset your BlackBerry

    1. Simultaneously press the Alt-RightShift-Backspace keys; this should force a soft reset. These keys vary in appearance according to your model. If you are prompted to press R to reset, do so. Alternately, you can perform a hard reset by inserting a paper clip into the reset hole on the back of the BlackBerry. On some BlackBerries, the reset hole is located beneath the battery cover.

    2. Once the BlackBerry has restarted, test to see whether you can now send and receive email. If you cannot, continue troubleshooting.

    Check network settings

    1. Click the Options icon, then click Network or Network Settings.

    2. In the "Radio" field, verify that the value is set to On.

    3. In the "Roaming" field, verify that the correct country is displayed.

    4. Verify that the "Status" is active, then click the track wheel. A menu will appear.

    5. Click Register Now and verify that the registration request is sent.

    If these settings are all correct, and you are able to register your BlackBerry, continue troubleshooting.


    Disconnect from the BlackBerry network

    Remove the device battery for about five minutes to ensure a complete disconnect from the BlackBerry network. This causes a hard reset, forcing the network to register the device as a new device on the network. This is a common fix for coverage areas in which you normally have a connection and can send and receive email, but are now having trouble (see the charts above to determine coverage areas).

    If you are unable to register the handheld or connect to the network, or do not have the correct options displayed in the "Roaming" or "Status" fields, contact your service provider.

    If you're using the BWC, you can also resend the service book to your device.

    Log onto your BWC account and under Profile click the send service book button.

    It will re-send the e-mail service book to your device.

    Re: 006 Help, my BlackBerry cannot send or receive email.

    You can also just re-register your device on the network by this path: Options>Advanced Options>Host Routing Table>menu key or trackwheel>Register Now. You'll get a message saying "registration message sent".
