    Verizon 7130 not booting up

    Advertisement



    I am now on my third 7130, it takes from one to 4 days and the thing restarts and never comes back on; i get the Verizon splash screen with the hourglass spinning and it doesn't do anything else. we have another 7 of these in my office and I'm the only one with this issue. it's getting embarrasing. Is there a way to kick this thing besides taking the battery out? and any thoughts on "why me"?

    Has anyone tried to wipe the BB and reinstall the OS on one with a problem? Is there something you are loading, a program or theme that might be the culprit?

    no, no downloads... still using the stupid red verizon theme. How do I wipe the BB when I cant get it to boot? my computer won't recognize it.

    Thanks,

    This post has info on wipping the BB.

    Try pulling the battery and waiting. The start up can take a long time.

    I followed the posts on a previous thread, wiped it with the "javaloader -usb wipe" thing and it worked. I am impressed. most of all because I don't have to go back to the store.

    Thanks

    Glad to see that worked. I would say if it happens again, you have a defective unit. I can see your frustration for having a few in a row, but remember, these are electronics

    As long as I don't have to go back to the store i'm happy. I guess i'll have to backup my programs and files so I can reboot it every once in a while.

    Thanks all!

    Always back up. Better safe than sorry. If you just reboot the BB you shouldn't need a back up, but for a wipe you will.

    Thumbs down Re: 7100 not booting up

    I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM HERE.

    Everything was OK until this morning and now all I get is the white screen with the bloody hourglass. This has gone on all day. I have pulled the battery out many times, tried another battery but nothing works.

    I can't connect to the desktop and don't know how to reset the thing while standalone.

    Please HELP.

    Re: Verizon 7130 not booting up

    i have a 7100 i, nextel.
    i am also having problems booting back up. it doesn't give me any options just a white hour glass for a while then yellow nextel background while the hour glass continues to roll.
    i have taken the battery out many times now with no change.
    what should i do?
    i really dont want to lose anything, most importantly my contacts. [guess im not the most frequent when comes to backup, or adding contacts to sim card. ] : <~
    not to mention this has really ruined my friday night!

    Re: Verizon 7130 not booting up

    I never did get my phone fixed, but my wife took it to verizon and had them send me a new phone. I tried very thing listed above. I wish they had a hard reset like pocket PC's so you are not totally hosed and have to get a new phone.
