Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100
Second Pearl in two months. Both times Sprint mechanics state that water has entered the phone and corrodes the circuitry. In my case I made every effort not to get the phone near water, in rain or on my hand. No problems with my wife's and we do not live in a humid area (Seattle)
Is this really the problem or is the phone known to have a design issue. Or am I getting phones with the problem form the manufacturing company?
Try removing the silver cover around the scroll ball, and remove the ball. There should be a little white square underneath it. If there is no white square, but a red square, then it could be water damage. I had the same issue with mine. If it's a white square, you may want to try contacting you provider again and explain you have checked for damage.
