    Blackberry 8700 Frozen!!

    Advertisement



    Hi, I've got a Blackberry 8700 and the other day tried to download some themes from website, I then through the Deskop Manager tried to upload to the device but something happened and now it's showing a white screen with the 'hourglass' icon. I tried to remove the battery for 30 seconds, but my Blackberry 8700g continues to show the everlasting hourglass.
    Whatelse can I do??

    Sounds like your themes bricked you BB. I've done it myself...more than once. Do you have desktop manager and 8700 series handheld software installed on you computer?

    And welcome to Pinstack!!

    You may need to reinstall your OS, if so here is a link with instructions -- they must be followed exactly and sometimes it takes more than one attempt to work:

    Thanks for your welcoming Schufly. Yes I do have a Desktop Manager installed, version 4.3. Now I'm not sure about the 8700 series software?? Doesn't that mean that the 4.3 Desktop Manager is completely different to the handheld software??
    If thats the case than I don't have it. Please help.
    I bought the phone on E-bay and it was working fine until the theme's downloads. Now the Desktop manager cannot detect the Blacberry 8700 as per Cyberspastic's instructions (which I thank you by the way, Cyberspastic).

    Hi there, me again.
    On my Desktop Manager - Device Software tab, it seems that the software has been wiped out... I am having dificulties of finding the 8700 Device Software because do not know weather the 'Desktop Manager' or 'Desktop Software' or else will do as a Device Software!!!
    Simple; is there a Device Software for Blackberry 8700f to be downloaded??? if so what would be the name of it...
    Thanks
