Trouble Shooting Tips:
Q: My Upgrader won’t upgrade my phone and keeps asking me to put it into “Download Mode”, how do I manually put my Blackjack II into this mode?
A : To put your Blackjack II into “Download Mode”, turn off your Blackjack II, then hold down Volume Up + Back Key while powering on the handset.
Q: After upgrading to WM 6.1 my Blackjack makes a beeping noise every couple of minutes (the same beep that is made when the power cable is disconnected), how do I fix this?
A: Re-Install the modem drivers (as specified in Samsung’s instructions) and re-run the upgrader.
