Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

Keyboard works but cannot dial

For some reason I cannot dial numbers anymore. I do not have fixed dialing on and I can make calls from my contacts. But I cannot dial a new number to make a call. What should I do?

Not sure if this is related, but I did notice an arrow on my screen located in the top right corner. The arrow is pointing upwards. Is this connecting to the dialing problem?

Thanks!

    Removing the battery and then restarting it fixed it! I always forgot that simple solution! Thanks!

My wing WT8120D5 phone when i call safaricom customer care number 100,it dials police station what is the problem&how is it set,


Your device has a saved list of important call numbers. The device has been provided auto dial precedence. Reseting the auto or fast dial would prevent dialing soon after pressing talk or call on the phone. Also, your phone subscriber provides the means of last resort to emergency numbers. For example, you may be out of service, however, your phone despite calling anyhwhere provides free emergency contact inspite of not asking for such. Contact the the phoneprovide for alterations.

WHEN I TRY TO DIAL A NUMBER IT PULLS UP MY CONTACTS INSTEAD OF DIALING THE NUMBER


I think this is a normal behavior of WM. As you go dialing, it goes trying to match it against your contacts list, so that you can easily select the one you want to call without even finishing keying his/her number in. You just have to select the name from the list it offers and, with few operations, make the call.
I might be heavily wrong, though.
Just my 2 cents... Carlos

Voicemail retrieval issue on my treo750


Your voicemail number on your phone is usally different than your own number. It's called a "retrieval number" which your provider has. You will need to contact them and get this number and they should be able to assist you with reprogramming the number into your phone. Hope this helped.

My blackberry dials + when i dial out of my contacts


There is a setting in Phone Options, Smart Dialing, that is enabled by Default. It is Use "1" for National Dialing, and is in place to avoid you needing to dial 1 or edit your Contacts number, if ever you or them are outside of the local area for the number. Basically you do not need to add the 1 if the call is billed as Long Distance. If the contact you are calling is a local number, you will not be charged long distance if the "1" is entered before the number.

TMobile wing dials the last number multiple times automatically.


I think maybe the dial button is messed up (Under the key).
You know how sometimes when something stuck in certain key of ur pc keyboard, it will keep typing that letter?!
You might just need clean under the dial button.

Speed-dial has quit working


Went into "Contacts" and selected one with speed-dial to edit. Made no changes but saved the contact. Magically, speed-dial began working correctly for all numbers. Rebooting or removing/reinserting the battery may also have worked but were not tried.

About fixed dialing
If you enable fixed dialing number (FDN) mode, your device only makes calls to contacts on your FDN list. Your device can dial emergency numbers in FDN mode, even if the numbers are not in the FDN list. If your service provider plan includes SMS, you can also send SMS messages to contacts on your FDN list

so if you have this enabled chances are you have to turn it off.
this is how you turn it on so you should be able to use it as a guide to turn it off.



Turn on fixed dialing
1. In the phone options, click FDN Phone List.
2. Click the trackwheel.
3. Click Enable FDN mode.
4. Type the PIN2 code provided by your service provider.
5. Click the trackwheel.

or if you wanna keep it on and add friends to the fdn



Add contacts to the FDN list
1. In the phone options, click FDN Phone List.
2. Click the trackwheel.
3. Click New.
4. Type the PIN2 code provided by your service provider.
5. Click the trackwheel.
6. Type a name and a phone number.
7. Click the trackwheel.
8. Click Save.

and finally some shortcut keys:
To open the phone, press the Send key.
To end a call, press the End key.
To call a selected contact or phone number, press the Send key. To call a speed dial number, hold the assigned key.
To add an extension to a phone number, press the X key. Type the extension number.
To call your voice mail access number, hold 1.
To type a letter in a number field, hold the Alt key.
To type the first letter on a key, press the letter key once.
To type the second letter on a key, press the letter key twice.
To turn on or turn off mute using the Mute button, press the Mute button.
To turn on or turn off mute using the keypad, press the exclamation point (!) key.
To turn speakerphone on and off during a call, press the period (.) key.
To change the volume during a call, roll the trackwheel.

Dialing on 755p


Ok theres two ways to do this, heres 1 way: press menu while you our on the phone display (the button to the right of alt) use the 5 way navigator to move to the right, scroll down to phone display options. Below the Show Dial Pad/ Show Wallpaper, you'll see where it says typing dials phone number change that to typing starts contact search. This will permanently make it liek your old treo. If you wanna dial numbers press the white button to thte left of z and start dialing the numbers.

Version 2: If you dial normally it will dial numbers, if you press th white button to the left of z then type contact name also works.

hopes this help
