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.
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
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.
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.
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?
1. at the same time hold the menu button (top left) and the jump button (bottom left) 2. This will bring you to the emergency screen (it gives you the option to make an emergency call) 3. Open to the keypad and hold in the menu+shift+q buttons at the same time. 4. The phone will reset and clear/unlock the security code
