Question about Verizon Communications BlackBerry Pearl 8130 Cell Phone - Silver

6 Answers

Not receiving text messages

I often do not receive text messages that people send to me on my 8130. Last night, I sent someone 3 messages and they replied to all of them, but I didn't get a single message. This happens frequently with my phone. Anyone know what the trouble might be?

    Yep, mine is doing the same thing.... only problem is, when I back up to a earlier date, it seems to work fine for a few days. Then the same thing happens again.... thought it was the sim card, (which I can't even find) but not sure. Started doing it again...... very very frustrating

    I am having the same problem, just got my phone about a month ago. It is very aggrevating all my texts get deleted randomly and a lot of times I do not even receive new ones.

  • baminick Oct 29, 2008

    I have the same problem. It also erases e-mails occasionally and texts also just disappear and sometimes show up for 2 seconds and go away before I can even read them. Pulling out the battery used to work for me, but the past few days it will not solve anything.

    I am having a SIMILAR problem.  Instead of me not getting the texts on my pearl, it's the other way around.  A few people aren't getting the texts I send them (but not everyone).  Does anyone know if this is a problem with my phone or theirs? And how it can be fixed?

    same for me , i get a text and see the little text indicator come up and then in erases before i even have a chance to read it, and sometimes i wont even get text at all, i never know if people are sending me text or not and i have to keep guessing when to ask if they sent me something...extremely annoying!!!

    I have just gotten this phone. It randomly deletes messages, call logs, etc. I show missed calls but the call log is empty! SO frustrating. I have several friends calling asking if I am okay or angry as they have tried MULTIPLE times to text me w/ no responses. I did NOT and have NOT received the texts. I have unlimited texting if that tells you how many I normally get and since I have gotten this phone...i have received less than 1/4 of what I normally got. I am very UNHAPPY with this phone. Addtiionally many times when I show a missed call the phone is right next to me and it NEVER rang! The little hour glass turns then all the sudden it shows a missed call but not whom it's from. SO if they do not leave a message then I do not know who has called.

You are running out of memory, just free up your memory. You can do this by doing some or all of the following:

  • Clear your log (hold alt and press lglg>then menu key>select "Clear Log">confirm)
  • Close programs you're not currently using (hold alt and back button) Some items will always be running like messages, phone, browser, home screen so on and so forth, leave those running
  • Uninstall themes and programs that you are not using anymore (Options>Advanced Options>Applications) [Leave the following applications on the phone or you will have trouble: BlackBerry "Version # i.e. 4.2" Core Applications; BlackBerry System Software; BlackBerry Attachment Service; Browser; Help; Phone. The rest are if you use them or not i.e. Tasks; MemoPad, BB Messenger, if you don't use them then you can delete them without major problems on your phone)
  • Move photos, music, video and other multimedia over to your disc instead on the actual BB device. Also delete ringtones that you no longer use
  • From your desktop uninstall languages that you do not need
  • Delete out your old text messages and emails, try to save them on your computer instead of your laptop (with email) or forward text messages that you need to your email then delete the actual text message
This should be a good start to clearing out your memory and start receiving text messages again along with your call logs showing up. If you remove an application it will ask to reboot, let it and then send a text message from online to make sure that you're up and working again. Then maintenance your BlackBerry about every week afterwards depending on your storing habits. Hope it works!

I have tried that and just about everything else--it actually DOES NOT work.  I have heard that this issue is a result of a "memory leak" in the BlackBerry OS, but that there is currently no solution.  Unfortunately I do not have a solution, but was wondering which service providers each of you use. Thanks!

Download the new 4.5 os for the pearl. this will fix any issues having to do with deleted txt messages and call logs. get it from blackberry's website.

  • davidkastt Feb 13, 2009

    the only solution to this issue is to download the new software for the blackberry pearl. 4.5. you can check what current version you have by going into options>about> itll say something like "v 4.3" or if you have current version you'll see "v 4.5". this new version will help you send mms as well.

I receive emails on my mac and some I forward to friends,but their unable to open them youtube etc and ask I send again but when I try I cannot open either. Please Help


Hi Richard. Thers a good chance you have mail preferences setup to compose new emails in "plain text". And/Or, "Use the same message format as the original message", meaning if you reply to someone who sent you an email that is in Rich Text Format, then your reply will be in Rich Text Format but, if they send you an email in Plain Text Format, then your reply, and possibly any forwarding will be sent in Plain Text also.

For website addresses to be "clickable links" in mail, you need to ensure all emails you send, forward, or reply are in Rich Text Format.
go to Mail... Preferences... then select the Composing tab and ensure Message Format is set to "Rich Text".
Further below in the same tab you will see "Responding" and a tick box for Use the same message format as the original message (Respond using Rich or Plain Text).
If you always want to respond or forward in Rich Text only and every time, then deselect that option.
All links should work and be clickable from then onwards.

You can highlight a non working website link in the email body, right click, then select "Link" then "Add Link" to make it clickable but, you will receive a notification about converting this message to rich text format?"

Basically, the links will not be clickable if you are setup to compose new emails in Plain Text. Nor will any replies or forwards you send that are changing to Plain Text to match the format received by you from others.
Always end, reply and forward in Rich Text Format

Hope that helps.
Regards
Paul

My iphone 5 will not recieve texts from a nokia 1650


First, try resetting the phone, press the Home button and Power button simultaneously until the screen goes blank. If you don't see the Apple logo, press the power button to turn the phone on. Have your friend try texting you. If it still doesn't receive the text, try removing the SIM card and reinserting it. Try another test. One last measure is to go into Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.

If none of these work, you will have to contact your carrier as SMS is a carrier specific service.

Describe your LG enV3 VX9200 Cell Phone Problem. Frequently texts say they are sent but various people are not receiving them and I cannot reply text, forward text, or send same text to multiple people....


Check in your sent folder and look at the envelope next to the message. Each envelope has a check box at the top right corner.

<>If the person you are sending the message to also has Verizon:
-If it was received by the other person, the box will be checked.
-If it has an arrow next to it, it's still in the process of being sent; possibly because the intended recipient is out of service.
-If you click on the sent message and scroll down to the bottom, it will tell you what time the other person received it at.

<>If the person doesn't have Verizon, all the messages you send (regardless of whether or not they were delivered) will have an arrow in the box and it will not tell you what time the person received the message at.

Sometimes, a message will have an I in the box. I think it stands for Incomplete; this only happens to me when I send a message to more than one person and the message doesn't get delivered for some reason.
