Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

1 Answer

BB Pearl keyboard sounds

How can i get the clicks on the keyboard to stay "off". I set the options on 'screen/keyboard" to Off and it works for a few minutes and then ignores it and goes back to the clicks.
when i check back in the options screen, it still says off, even though it's making the clicks.

Try going to blackberry.com and downloading the newest OS for your phone. BLACKBERRY.COM

You can either try the online update method or download the desktop manager then download the updated handset software and install it using the Desktop manager software (recommended)

1.)Make sure you download desktop software (Install)
2.) Make a manual backup of your phone and its programs etc.) The installation will ask to do this so this step can be bypassed most of the time
3.) Run the device software update once you download the file you need it should ask you automatically to update the phone with the new software

Any more questions feel free to reply in a comment.

This might be because of Hardware issue you need to walk into the service center to get it repair.
For your track ball:-
1) Go to menu
2) Select Option's
3) Select screen and key board
4) Make Horizantal and vertical sensitivity to 100, Still not working you need to walk into the service center.

My BB pearl 8100 doesn't ring for incoming calls/messages/emails, but if i go to listen my ringtones or music they all sound fine, i think it got corrupted or something because no matter how i change the...


Not sure if the pearl interface is the same as mine, a Storm - I have an option on my main screen to fast-select ring volume (called Notification), which affects both calls and messages, and I can choose loud, soft, vibrate, silent, and also go into options for more detailed settings. You may have such an option that is easy to find, and maybe easy to set by mistake, without realising it.

Pearl manual at this location:
http://docs.blackberry.com/en/smartphone_users/deliverables/1217/userguide_bb8100_gprs.pdf
see p193, Notification Profiles.
There are other keys, eg # that affect notification sounds/vibrate. Download and search in the manual for 'Notification" to find all the places mentioned.

Even if you have a paper manual, I recommend keeping the electronic one since you can easily search for keywords and find all the places they are mentioned quickly.

If you are having problems with your Blackberry Pearl 8100, 8110, 8120 or 8130, you might want to wipe all of the data off of it and start fresh. You may want to try resetting the device first by removing the battery from the unit for about 5 seconds and reinserting it. If that doesn’t help things, proceed with these steps to erase all data on the device.

if that doesnt work, instead of typing MEP2, try pressing and holding the ATL key and type MEPPE

if this works, a window will pop up asking for the unlock code....
