BlackBerry Curve suddenly wont synch

I've had a blackberry since the beginning of time. The 7520 was a tank.
Now I get the curve and have nothing but problems.

The other day my Curve stopped synching to Outlook 2003 on XP Pro SP3. It wont even register on the computer I usually synch it with. I tried other computers and they wont pick up the USB connection either so I have isolated the problem to the Curve? I have also tried other Synch cords.
Whats my problem? I have read that going to Options/Advanced Options/Service Book/ then delete and undelete "Desktop(Synch)" will possibly fix this but that item does not exist in my service book. What happened?
Thank You

I have had more issues w/ the USB breaking on the Curve than other BlackBerries, but only a bit more. Look at where the USB plugs into your phone... ive had pins bend, but more often the whole little black piece gets bent.

This is a warranty covered item. I would follow up w/ Sprint.

But it does charge just fine.
Is it possible to charge but not synch?

Yes. My understanding is charging uses 2 of the pins in there, and all 4 are required for USB.

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

Ya it does sound like a USB problem. The service book you are referring to is only present in blackberries that are linked to a Blackberry enterprise server. Thats what the 'Desktop' refers to not the actually desktop software. (at least my understanding of it).

Like ALogvin said follow up with sprint.


Hope that helps.

Well, there was indeed an actual pin missing.
A new refurbed model has been ordered...
