    Advertisement



    okay i really did a number on my bb 8700c (cingular)

    i downloaded a theme from mobile413.com and immediately after the theme finished downloading my bb shut down. The screen went black while at the same time the led red light came on, then the screen turned white with the hour glass appeared in the center but my device will not reboot, it keeps shutting off and restarting. I dont know what to do do, please advise!!! Thank you!

    hey there,
    You might want to try reinstalling your OS thru desktop manager.

    are you sure you downloaded the right theme for your phone?
    i've never heard of a theme shutting down a phone...but anyhooty...you need a reload of the OS, from the sounds of it

    and...you might need this if the bb is unresponsive...

    hey cherri, I was wondering if maybe she would be able to do a hard reset before attempting to reinstall her OS. I thought about it after i advised her to do one. What do you think?

    something similar happened to me on the 8700c when I used the desktop manager to install several games from my 8100 Pearl.Now the 8700c just keeps rebooting and temporarily connects then disconnects from manager so the os can't be reinstalled
