Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

2 Answers

My blackberry pearl 8100 is doing things all on it's own. I will leave the phone on the desk and it starts calling people. The brick breaker game starts playing on its own. I have taken out the battery and sim card to reset and that didn't work.

Try hard is how its done.make sure you backup everything before you do this as it will reset to factory settings.

  • From the home screen, select Options | Security Options
  • Select General Settings
  • On some devices, you now select "Services". If this isn't available, go to next step.
  • Click the trackwheel, and select Wipe Handheld
  • Click Continue
  • When prompted, type "blackberry" to continue
  • Your BlackBerry device will erase all the data and put the settings back to factory default

    Blackberry pearl - blank screen - phone will send and recieve calls but the screen shows nothing.

    First, pull the battery out while the BlackBerry Pearl is turned ON. Leave the battery out for 5 minutes and then put it back on.

    If same problem occur, contact the manufacturer and have them reload the OS/firmware on your phone.

    That is the only solution. Thank you!
