    Hello Everyone,

    My friend has a problem with his 8830 that I can't figure out. Sorry in advance if it is long, here it is.

    Friend purchased phone on e-bay had his number changed to the 8830 and has the data plan from Verizon. What happens now is when a sms text or e-mail is received, the LED flashes but no sound. I thought it was the way the selected theme was set up but changing theme had no effect. As a matter of fact, I can't change any settings for any of the themes.

    The phone's o/s was upgraded by Verizon to with a platform IT policy reset did not work, hard reset did not work, and a soft reset did not work. We do not know if this phone was ever connected to a Blackberry BIS or corporate Blackberry service. Verizon will not do anything else, as my friend was not the original purchaser of the phone. Please help!!

    Verizon does not upgrade to os4.5. If a rep in store did it they were wrong. The problem is the os for the 8830. It is missing the ringtones .cod file. When I get back to my pc I will post the link for the thread with directions on how to fix the problem.

    I would bring it back up to a 4.5 OS. It has few advantages. If you are going to run a beta might as well run one that is going to give you the most it has to offer. 4.5 includes:
    Docs to go
    Enhanced web browser for viewing streaming media (ie youtube).
