Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

1 Answer

Blackberry pearl is going crazy!!!

My blackberry pearl is, as crazy as this sounds, randomly selecting things(as if im pressing the enter or select button, even when im not touching it). this results in my calls being automatically answered and at random, muted and unmuted, un wanted texts to be sent, and random calls to be made, it selects anything and everything. the only way to stop it is to lock it, but it still keeps selecting, and attempting to unlock. This sounds very crazy, and its not as though its my first blackberry, i had the curve recently, but decided i wanted a pearl. if you have any idea whats causing this it would help very much! thanks

    Same thing here; it is acting as a lunatic, selecting what ever it wants, when it wants.

    My Blackberry is doing the same thing. At first it began with the trackball not responding when I would click to selct an item. Now, it selects items at will and I cannot make a phone call without engaging the mute function. I cannot send an inteligible text message. This problem is very annoying and AT&T will not replace my phone

I cant receive anythin om my bluetooth yet i can send,,,my device cant be paired


Hi,the BlackBerry Pearl is a versatile mobile phone. It's primarily a Smartphone that's suitable for business use but it's also equipped with some decent entertainment features. The pearl can also play music files which you can enjoy with the help of a hands free Bluetooth headset. Let me teach you how to pair a Blackberry Pearl Smartphone to a Bluetooth headset.


Things You'll Need:

* Blackberry Pearl Smartphone
* Bluetooth headset

Turn on your Bluetooth headset by pressing and holding the multifunction button.


Check if the LED light is a solid blue. Turn off the headset and repeat the first step if the light is blinking.


Activate the Bluetooth wireless connection on your BlackBerry Pearl by Going into your "Settings" menu

Select the "Options" menu to go to your connectivity settings

Click on the "Bluetooth" option to activate the connection


Choose the "Add Device" option on your BlackBerry Pearl to locate the headset


Wait for a while as your Smartphone locates the Bluetooth headset


Enter 0000 for the password after selecting the headset to complete the Bluetooth pairing process


After that, your Done !!!!you can now send and receive. But after following this instruction and no solution yet, that means there is something wrong with your blue tooth. Corrupted. You will need to reset the phone.
