Re: connection keeps turning off
I would take the phone back, mainly for the radio issue. I have seen that issue before and it is usually hardware related. And the fact that it is a refurbished unit probably indicates that it is hardware related.
Have them replace it noting the errors you have been experiencing.

To help you with this problem, I want you to know that when a cellphone
got fell, the main problem will be make is lost in display,you will not
see anything but you can hear something like message tone and start-up
tone, you can also receive calls. Don't be worry with that kind of
problem. To tell you whats happening inside your phone is your LCD of
display connection is only misaligned. Get it to the nearest cellphone
repair center to get your cellphone to be open by a technician and
probably they will do dismantling your phone and fix the problem. Hope
this could help. Don't forget to say thanks..:-)
If it is from Verizon, take it back. I was having similar issue with my Pearl 8130, where it would have to be wiggled to finally charge, and would not charge much.
Verizon just replaced it rather than attempting to fix it.
If so, get all your data off of the phone before you take it.
You've ruined your blackberry to say the least. I used to have the blackberry pearl, your going to have to take it to a technician because you probably damaged some internal hardware. Your best bet is to take it to a technician to have it repaired, if they can even repair it, or buy a used blackberry from your cell phone company. Kinda sucks, but that is how they make there money- and get a touch case if you choose to get a new one. Swissgear is very very durable! Sorry your having a problem! Wish you the best of luck.
Reflash the phone using the Blackberry desktop. You need to download the latest firmware from your service provider's site and install it to your computer. Connect your phone without battery and using the APP LOADER flash it and when thats done, do the flash again with the batery in.
