    So lost...

    Advertisement



    Haha, I'm in need of desperate help. I bought a 7130e off eBay and it came with no software but I know it works with my provider (US Cellular). I tried downloading the Desktop Manager 4.2 but it wont work and says it's not installed on the device. Can someone tell me the basics as to what I have to do to start transferring pictures, ringtones, apps, etc. to my phone? TIA!

    PS: I don't have it hooked up to US Cellular until tomorrow so maybe that might be it?

    Im afraid its not that easy. Things have to be in certain formats to be uploaded on the device by the application loader through the desktop manager. You need to download the desktop manager then download the new updated software version from blackberry.com , or from US Cellulars website. After that you can load that in through desktop manager.

    Or you can try to wipe the handheld and try everything all over again. You can us the desktop manager without service. If that doesn't work then do as he said uptop. Redownload the OS. Let us know how it turns out. Good luck

    So will the 4.2 work with my phone? Any idea? I had the 4.2 and the 4.1 and the 4.2 connected and everything but I didn't know what to do after I got that error? Also, do you mean the "SP" version by the "update"?

    JKirk, Welcome to PinStack.

    Check out the revelavant links on the BB FAQ & Guides page for where to get the latest OS for your carrier/device and how to update it. The specific ones you will want is Blackberry OS Software links (by carrier) and How to: OS 4.x Upgrade for your Blackberry.


    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    Thanks a lot, Rcbjr. I'll check those out. I'm going to get this thing hooked up with my service provider before I do anything else in case they have to wipe it clean or something.

    Also, there's no OS software for US Cellular in that post. Should I just ask the guy there when I go there?

    Re: So lost...

    Hmm, now that I got the Desktop Manager and my phone all fixed. How do I get like ringtones and pictures moved over to it? When I try to do it, it says that I have to have atleast 4.2 on my device. Can I do that? I don't see it on Blackberry's site under my model number..

    With your device you will need to email the Pics to your BB, and for the Ringtions, they will need to be posted to a website for downloading using the BB Internet Browser. There are threads that explain this in the BlackBerry Ring tones and Themes & Images Forums

    The Desktop Manager 4.2 Media Manager only works with BB Devices that have 4.2 OS, which currently is limited to the Pearl/8100.

    Hope this Helps
