Troubleshooting Tips

Re-Register Your BlackBerry Device

You may have to re-register your device with your wireless network. To do this:

  1. Click the BlackBerry button > Options.
  2. Advanced Options > Host Routing Table.
  3. Click the BlackBerry button and choose Register Now.

This should sync your PDA with your carrier’s wireless network.

Enter Settings Manually

If you create a BlackBerry account with the same username and password as your cPanel account, there can be a major conflict.

When you setup an email account on BIS, you are asked for only 2 things: an email address and password. If both the email and username exist and the passwords are the same, BlackBerry will accept this data and sync the phone with the account’s default email address instead of your HostGator email address.

To fix this, just give BlackBerry a false password. When it cannot authenticate, you will be asked if you want to Re-enter account information or Enter the settings manually.

  1. Select Enter the settings manually, then select I will provide the settings to add this email account.
  2. Enter the full IMAP information for your account.

This will allow BIS to sync with the proper account.

 

Note: With the new Blackberry OS, this fix may not apply; however, you may want to try the above steps if you continue to have difficulty setting up your email account.
