    Default HELP!! How do you "Turn Radio On"

    Woke up this morning, immediately reached for my brand new BB (Curve 8330), upon clicking on the Web Browser I was told either my battery was dead or I need to turn the radio on. My battery is fully charged so how do I turn on the radio..?
    Thanks

    Manage connections icon and then either select Turn all on (or restore) or scroll to the Mobile Network line and press space to put a check in the box.

    I did exactly that. Even tried Turning off all connections, and the restoring them. Should I be calling Verizon? When I click on Service Status it comes up : not connected.

    Welcome to crackberry...

    Or try accessing the browser and it will usually ask if you'd like to turn connections on.

    I had the same thing happen to me this weekend with my new Blackberry from Verizon. I pulled the battery and then restarted it... was the only way I could get it to come back on. I went into the connections manager and tried but it wouldn't work that way for me either.

    Exclamation Help Me Please!!!

    My Blackberry Curve has been acting wierd lately, their is an SOS thing in the very top right corner of the screen where the bars are supposed to be. I cannot call people or text them, and they cannot call or text me, or atleast i haven't recieved their texts. Every time I try to call someone I get a little box that says CALL FAILED and it returns to the call log thing. Its getting so annoying now! Grr....

    This actually worked. I spent over 7 hours trying to make it work every other way people had mentioned and none of them had worked.

    I LOVE CRACKBERRY. <3 Thanks for the advice!!!

    This happened to me several times, and finally I took it in to the Verizon people. The lady told me to never turn it off! How strange is that? It feels odd to only set one's phone to silent instead of turning it off.

    Does anyone know why the radio keeps turning off on it's own, and yesterday, my blackberry messenger didn't have a notifying noise on it. The emails did and so did the text messaging but not the blackberry messenger itself. Does anyone know how to fix that?
