Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

1 Answer


My blacberry Rim 8100 is actually in good condition.But to my surprise when I inserted the sim for the network I am going to use, The signal part of the unit appears "SOS" but before it appears Good signal appears once and then turned to SOS. I cant send a message even receive a call (after I tried to call up my own number) or receive a text message. I have enough load but sometimes when signal appears , i can use the unit normally.I want to know what to do in order to REMOVE- "SOS" on the signal part of the unit.Note that when I checked the signal status of the phone is ranging to -82 to - 97 in which rated to very LOW SIGNAL. How can I maintain strong signal? so that I can use the unit without that I am saying 'SOS" .Hoping for your immediate reply and advice solution for this technical problem of my unit. Thank you very much

Try resetting the phone, firstly by powering down, removing the battery and powering back on.

My blacberry 8520 reflects a red sos on the screen. I have changed my sim card, try a soft and hard reset, turned wi fi and bluetooth connection off but still, the problem persist

Make sure the metal bracket that holds the sim card in is secure and check it for damage. Since you've already changed out the card and have tried resetting the phone, check the sim card contacts on the phone. If they are wearing out, that could cause the problem you are having.

How do i take it off sos mode

usually SOS comes up when you are out of signal range or if you dont have sim inserted.

How to unlock my blacberry 8100?

The phone can only be unlocked from AT@T, you will need to call them and asked them to unlock it.

There maybe other unlock options, but I am not aware of them.
