Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

1 Answer

Phone won't detect media card.

I have a BlackBerry Pearl 8130 that was working fine up until a couple hours ago. I bought a 2GB media card that I put in the phone and everything was cool, I put all my songs on it and took some pictures. It worked fine.
Then today, I removed the media card to put it on the computer so that I could put some pictures on my computer, and when I put the media card back in the phone it said "A media card had been inserted that contains errors. To correct the errors please use a disk error checking utility on a computer."
Now it won't even detect the card in the phone when I put it in. It does fine on the computer though, I put it in and reformatted it and still nothing from the phone.
I've done everything as far as turning the phone off, removing the battery and putting it back in. Still nothing.
Right now I have the media card in the phone and it says " A media card is not presently inserted in the device."
Please help me, I'm not sure what else to do.

    Nevermind.
    I figured it out myself after messing with it for a while.
    For future references. You have to go to Options/Media Card then turn the support off. Insert the media card in again and it will detect it.

How to insert the sim card into BlackBerry 8130


If this is a Verizon phone then it most likely does not have a SIM card. If it does have one then it should be located under the battery. If your phone has a SIM card, here are the instructions for removal. Just reverse for install.

Hi i had purchased a 8130 pearl Blackberry from us.It is locked to verizon.I am now back to india.i want to use it with other cdma provides.how can i do it as this phone does not have any sim card...


You need blackberry pearl 8130 unlock code for verizon network to unlock your phone so you can use any of india cdma network on your blackberry pearl. Blackberry unlock code can be obtained from your original phone network provider and third party sites. Both of them take some charges, but third party sites more cheaper and more quickly rather than asking unlock code from network provider.

Blackberry pearl 8130 locked by personal code


You can reset the phone by going to Options > General Settings > Security > Blackberry button and wiping the entire handheld.
That usually does a pretty good job of clearing the handset. If that doesn't do it, then you might have to reflash it by going to the carriers website and redownloading the software.
One final thing - it might be the PUK code. If thats the case, then try putting your SIM card into the phone (if its a GSM Blackberry)

My blackberry pearl trackball doesnt work


Take it where you bought it and try to get it replaced, saying it's defective. Hopefully you're under warranty, unlike myself who has a **** blackberry who's radio keeps turning off randomly and won't make or recieve calls without having to manually reconnect 'mobile network' hundreds of times a day. Your phone must have got really wet though because buttons and **** don't ******* unless exposed to extremly wet conditions (trust me, I know). I'd like an iphone over this **** for damn sure but i'm stuck with any annoying and fairly useless phone for now.

Cant find where to insert san disk card


If you have a blackberry pearl 8130 then the Memory card slot should be on the left side of the phone above the application key.  If it is a 8110 the memory card slot will be underneath the battery.  Hope I helped.  Oh and I don't believe you can put the memory card into the MacBook, you have to transfer files with the bluetooth on both your phone and your Mac.
