    Power / Turning on Question

    Advertisement



    This may seem like a stupid question, but I can't seem to find an answer to it. I've figured out that the red key turns the phone OFF and that I can do a soft reset by pressing a key combination or a hard reset by removing the battery. BUT, I can't seem to figure out how to turn the blackberry back on without removing the battery. Is this possible? For instances where I either turn the phone off, it runs out of battery, or I have to reboot, how do I turn the power back on from the off state. Is this possible, or do I have to resort to removing the battery every time?

    Welcome to the Stacks Cathelin. I don't have an 8300, but I believe there should be an on/off button on top of the unit?

    The button on the top left of the 8300 is the mute key which will also put the device in standby; the red phone key is also the power on/off button

    There's also the icon that will turn the phone off...after that I believe that the holding down the red button will turn it back on...I have my phone to automatically turn on with my alarm so I never had this problem...dont know for sure but hope it helps.

    Okay - this isn't rocket science - the red key turns the phone off ..... press it again and it turns the phone on!!!
    The button on the top of the Curve is for muting or if you press and hold the top botton it places the phone in standby also disabling the keys. Press the top button again to wake the phone.

    It wasn't the new person, it was the incorrect info provided by 2 more seasoned members above. If your going to provide helpful info make sure it is accurate!

    Heh, well. It didn'ts seem to me like he was flaming a noob, but rather the senior members who responded verbosely. His short but sweet answer was the correct one.

    Thanks guys, for taking the time to respond. I appreciate the help. The red key is the power on button, but it wasn't working for me earlier because I didn't have enough charge. Duh!
