    Question High-pitch beep instead of vibrate? help!

    Advertisement



    I noticed last night that instead of vibrating my phone would give a high-pitch beep, then ring if it was supposed to. This morning I turned it off and took out the battery to get my microSD card out and the problem is still there. I even went to the profile settings to make sure everything was on vibrate like it should be.

    I really don't know why it would do this... I did re-install the OS yesterday, because I was missing some features (memo, task, brick breaker, help) but I don't think it would have an effect on the vibrate...?

    I'd really like to get this fixed because I use vibrate almost all the time. And that beeeeeeeping is getting annoying!

    It was 4.2.1.107 it was the same one I already had but it gave me the apps I was missing. Should I do it again?

    no rather try and do a restor to your os settings before the install. then i will show you how to install your missing apps without having to do a complete install

    ok, but how do I do a restore? I'm new to BBs and have never messed with my previous phones' software before lol.

    ok I can't figure this out... I tried syncing but nothing happened. I don't really use any programs on the comp for my calendar/tasks/contacts so I juse picked whatever programs I could and it didn't work :/ Then I went to back up/Restore and both the buttons are un-clickable. I don't really care if I lose my contacts and calendar info I can put it in again but it won't even let me restore.

    Well I can't find anyway to back it up I'm going to try to re-install the OS like I did yesterday and if it still doesn't work then I'll do the wipe & install.

    It might be a hardware issue

    I was afraid of that... it is a refurbished phone, so if it is a hardware issue is there anything I can do? I don't have any paper that says I have a warranty... I have no papers whatsoever from RIM. If it is a hardware issue can I still send it to RIM and have it fixed, even if I have to pay?
