Have you tried hard might solve the issue.backup everything as it will go back to factory settings

  • From the home screen, select Options | Security Options

    I have a Blackberry Pearl 8130, the mobile network shuts off by itself. When it try to provision, the phone states that the radio is shut off. How do I fix this problem so the radio stays on all the...


    This is unfortunately a known issue with the Pearl. There are a couple reasons to why this happens. If your battery is defective, then your phone will sporadically believe that your phone is low on battery (even when its not), this will cause your phone to kick the radio off by itself--even every 5 minutes. Try cleaning the battery contacts or even try a new battery. Another reason is a faulty OS, if the battery replacement doesn't work, then the problem is with your OS and will have to be re-installed. I know this sounds like a hassle, but its a known issue and it should take care of your problems.

    Below is the procedure :

    This would be a long procedure.

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    There is no option to turn off call barring and to turn my radio on. I bought a used unlocked 7290 for an upcoming trip to Spain. I can text ok. What do I do?

    Hello. Begin by removing the battery from the black berry for 5 minutes. This will reset your black berry to factory settings and may well solve your problem. If it does not, you will have to take your blackberry into a phone store. Joe

    I don't believe that Limewire will work on BB's.
    I use Pandora radio. It is like Sirius radio but it is free and works great on BB's . You can listen to any type of music you like.

    It keeps freezing up.

    Dont worry this is a common problem with this phone which can be resolved . As far as hard reset is concernerd if you fear for loosing data make a backup on your system.

    Anyways a new software update is available which should sort out this issue without a hard reset

    Old Version: ROM 2.13.666.0 Radio Version: 1.37.00
    New Version: ROM 2.13.666.1 Radio Version: 1.37.30
    To Confirm: Tap Start>>Settings>>System>>Device Information
    Download Sites ( oc)
    Ut Starcom Website Link for Bell HTC 6800 Patch ( ( can download here directly)
    This should help and do let me know about it so that if there is any more update i can keep you informed

    Is a boost mobile sim good in a sprint black berry 8830?

    Only if the blackberry is unlocked from the origional carrier. Sounds like your phone is still locked. Contact the carrier and if you are in decent standing with the company, they will provide a sim unlock for the device.

    Connection keeps turning off

    I would take the phone back, mainly for the radio issue. I have seen that issue before and it is usually hardware related. And the fact that it is a refurbished unit probably indicates that it is hardware related.

    Have them replace it noting the errors you have been experiencing.

    Radio keeps turning off

    I had this problem last year ... very annoying to say the least.
    It turned out to be my battery, it's was saying charged but was not.
    I know it sounds far fetched but try switching with someone elses battery, or grab a new one in the store to try for a minute. You may also be able to try using your phone while it is plugged in. If the battery is not too far gone this will work to prove the battery is the issue.
    It worked for me and I have heard of others having the same success by switching batteries. The girl that figured this out for me told me these batteries are not meant to be charge for long periods of time, and that plugging the phone in as you go to bed is what was harming mine. This I can't back up, but she was on the money with my other problem so she may be right?

    Good luck
