Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

1 Answer

Pearl and T9

My phone recently switched from T9 to regular testing on it's own. I have tried to change it, but nothing seems to work. I've turned the phone off numerous times and taken the battery out. No such luck. Any advice?

If you are in the texting screen, where you want to type, try hitting the menu button and click "Enable SureType". If that doesn't work, you may want to contact your service provider and see what they suggest.

When i plug my blackberry pearl in its charger nothing happens. It wont turn on or nothing.


try a secondary battery as well as a second charger (I believe the pearl uses micro USB, which is also used by bluetooth headsets, other phones, and pcs- you could even plug it into a pc with the cable to see if it charges)
If neither works, the phone is unfortunately dead. However if the battery works, bad battery. If the different charger works, bad charger

No volume for rings/texts


take the back cover off and see if the black mesh material is intact and still covering the internal speaker. blow out the speaker area if you can, and take your battery out of the phone and leave it out for about 20 minutes. put it back in and verify that your volume is all the way up, and its on the LOUD setting. also, try using a different ringtone, or just a differend sound all together......if you can, use a flashlight to shine through the mesh material that covers the internal speaker ( on the back of the phone, behind the back cover, to the left of the flash and lens) and try to see if it atleast APPEARS intact.......another thing you can try, would be to call that phone, and while the phone is ringing, place it up against your ear, without the back cover on the phone, and see if you can hear anything at all.

if this does not work, then you either have a bad speaker, or a bad conenction. either way, you need to take the phone back to the store and have them take it apart and inspect it, or just have them send it back to the manufacturer for repairs.......and enjoy the piece of **** phone that they give you to use in the mean time....sorry about the joke, but thats the way they usually do it......especially t-mobile....

Alarm quit working, Blackberry pearl 8130


I wonder if changing your theme would fix this issue. It might be a corrupt theme? You might be able to also get the Alarm Pro which is an add-on software. The other thing you can try is changing the volume level. Put it to loud if it isn't at loud or put it to normal if it is at loud. Some people have solved this issue by clearing the cache option too.

Speakerphone when answering blackberry pearl 8100


I had the same problem. I called T-mobil, my carrier, and they had me take the battery out while the phone was 'on' and put it back in. After the security scan was done, the tech called me back on my cell - problem fixed. (I'm not sure if he did something on his end too, but at least try it your self first!)

Wireless Switching Off


I am having the same issue with BB 7190 with mike (walkie talkie) network. I have similar issues. It started off with the phone disconnecting from the network. It would take a long time to reconnect. Thereafter, the wireless would turn on/off at it own accord. I changed the phone with the service provider two times and they finally agreed that it was not the phone. They thought it was the SIM card and a new one was installed. Still the same problem. A friend gave me his own BB 7190 with mike and I have the same issue. Calling the technical support resulted in them opening a work ticket indicated a network issue. The result was not a network but a software issue. I have been out of a phone for the last month with no success from the telephone service provider ... Telus in Canada. My comment is that Telus and other carriers are turning to GPM network (international network) and they are sorting out of issues. Todate, I don't have a phone that works and so far, I am not impressed with the BB.
