Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

Blackberry 8100 "handheld is locked"

I recently brought a Blackberry 8100 from Ebay quite cheaply as it was listed as spare or repair. I have received it and managed to get it to turn on but all it says is "handheld is locked" and it has 3 options "unlock, emergency call, or cancel". I was wondering if this would be a user lock or is the phone blocked? Thanks in advance for any suggestions/solutions.

Your problem is the charge port on your phone needs replacement. We fix them through our ebay repair listings for $38.95. Just type "blackberry charge port repair" for your ebay search and look for the listings with "PORT REPAIR" around a charge port in big red writing. Our ebay username is "its-a-pheo" We have fixed hundreds of them and complete the fix the day we receive the phone from you.

Blackberry pearl 8130 won't charge


Sounds like your charging port has gone bad. Try CPR in New York City. They are faster than the manufacturer, and cheaper! They have a usual turnaround of 3-5 business days. And if you become a fan on their facebook page, mention it and you will get a 10% discount.
Here is the link to their facebook page, it has all the info you need.

My Blackberry Wont charge?!


look at the 6 pins on the phones charge port and see if one is higher than the others (usually on the end). if the pins is too far up the lower half doesnt connect to the charger. If your usb port will charge on via usb "DOCK" then more than likely the charger itself (which is way more simple to fix)

1.) if one of the pins on the phones charge port is pushed up, grab a sewing needle and GENTLY push the pin back into place,

2.) if the charging dock is working and is a usb charger like your wall charger, buy a new wall charger at your local electronics store.

hope this helps!
