The only thing that you can do with this issue is try wiping the software clean and reinstalling fresh software. You would need the blackberry desktop manager first installed on your home computer. If you dont have the cd the program is more then likely available on your mobile providers website. Once the program is downloaded and installed follow these directions

To perform this procedure, follow the steps below:

  1. Remove the battery from the BlackBerry device.
  2. Double-click Application Loader in BlackBerry Desktop Manager while the BlackBerry device is not connected to the computer.
  3. Click Next on the Welcome to the Application Loader Wizard screen.
  4. When the Communication Port Selection screen appears, connect the BlackBerry device.
  5. When the USB-PIN option appears, click Next. The Device Application Selection screen should appear.
  6. Re-insert the battery and allow the process to complete.

Blackberry pearl won't turn on


There are no special ways of turning on the Blackberry.

Simply power on - it is fully charged - if this doesn't work, remove the battery for a couple of seconds and re-try power on.

Screen turned white


Remove the back cover, Remove the battery, if the phone is GSM take the little card out of the back of phone by sliding the metal cover in proper direction. Should be arrows. Put the Sim card back in battery back in then turn phone on. If this doesn't work let me know. Main thing is reseating the sim card. (this assuming you a service provider that requires a sim card. )
