    will not connect with Cingular network

    Advertisement



    Hello all,
    I recieved a new in the box 8700C for Christmas that my wife purchased privately (ebay)
    I use it for phone only and to read my ebooks with mobipocket.
    Monday, it lost connection with Cingular and took almost 20min to reconnect.
    Teusday it lost connection and has been unable to connect since.
    no error messages display just "no service" instead of "Cingular"
    on a side note.
    put the sim card in my old phone, and it connected as normal,
    and
    when placed next to my desktop, no humming clicking during attempted connection like it used to.

    Love this thing, want it back.
    please help

    Rob

    Welcome to Pinstack helowrench,

    go to options, select network.

    Go to manual, can you find cingular network, and can you connect?

    should note that my work carry cell phone is also cingular, so I am positive that I have signal available.

    Hmmmm. It sounds like you've already tried a battery pull....Someone else will be along in a few to figure this out. Good luck Rob.

    First thing:

    Put your sim card back in your BB. (after it reboots, do a cold reboot)
    take the battery out for 30 seconds, and put it back in)

    after it reloads,

    TURN ON Wireless.
    then if Cingular doesn't connect, then go network, and you should beable to see the network selection mode.

    if this doesn't work, download the lasted RIM OS from your carrier.
    Then go to this...

    also another thing to try is re-sending your service books. I am unsure how good that would do cause *usually* service books fixes data refuse problems, or just plain not getting e-mails...
