I should be under insurance coverage through your provider and they can replace it. However they may charge a deductible. I would take it to a store ran by your provider and see what they can do to help you.

I cannot get the enable blue tooth option to switch on. It used to enable when I took the battery out but now not even that works My phone is a blackberry pearl flip 8220


take it in to the dealer, it is a COMMON problem with the blackberry flips, out of 10 people I know that have this exact phone, 6 of them have had to be returned and sent away for repairs, (which in turn got them a new phone.) That is if you have a warranty. If you don't have warranty, then you have to pay for it to be fixed. It just depends on how bad you want the bluetooth...

How to fix a faulty Blackberry rollerball/trackball


There are a few relatively simple solutions to fixing a faulty Blackberry rollerball/trackball.

Compressed Air

Spraying some compressed air on the ball and round the sides of the ball can sometimes loosen the compacted dirt & dust on the rolling mechanism.

You can pick up compressed air from your local hardware store.

WD40

Spray a tiny amount of WD40 on a cotton bud and rub it onto the rollerball. This can free up the mechanism and lubricate it.

Removing and Cleaning the Rollerball/Trackball

  1. Using a small flathead screw driver gently prise the silver ring around the rollerball from the top (be extremely careful as the catches are made of plastic and can break easily)
  2. The rollerball module should come out with easy
  3. Using a clean paint brush, gently brush the inside of the Blackberry where the module came from
  4. Using a toothbrush clean the rollerball module gently around the rollers on the underside and also clean the actual rollerball
  5. When replacing the rollerball module it will only fit one way so don't worry about putting it in upside down
  6. There are three plastic catches on the silver ring, there should be one at the bottom & two at the top. Line them up on the phone and press it back in place gently.


Replacing the rollerball/trackball

Sometimes the mechanism or the rollerball can be come damaged and cleaning will not solve the problem. In this case you can replace the rollerball by following the instructions above about cleaning and purchase a replacement rollerball from eBay or one of the other countless online stores that see Blackberry parts.

I would always recommend that you buy genuine Blackberry replacement parts as these are usually of a higher quality than copies.

I have a 6-mo old Blackberry Pearl Flip 8230 that


first try replacing the batteries with a fresh one, having a battery logo with a lightning strike states that the batteries, including the backup battery has completely dried out, try charging it for a few hours. if there is no change and you still get the logo, maybe it would be safe that you should have it check at blackberry repair center.maybe some shortage or busted parts are causing such an error on your blackberry.

Can i get cricket service on blackberry pearl?


Sure, a couple of things:
First- you can use BlackBerrys on Cricket in SOME markets. You will NOT be able to use a BlackBerry in an AWS market where Cricket uses the 1900mhz spectrum- simply because the BlackBerry doesn't have that band.

Here is a partial list of AWS markets.

Chicago, IL
Beaumont, TX
Brownsville, TX
Corpus Christi, TX
Laredo, TX
Las Vegas, NV
McAllen, TX
Oklahoma City, OK
St. Louis, MO.
Philadelphia, PA
Milwaukee, WI

Second- the phone doesn't have to be "Unlocked". It needs to be "Flashed".

Third- talk, text, MMS, and internet ARE possible.

Fourth- BlackBerry Internet Services such as BBM and PIN messaging will NOT work. Reason is, you need a BIS account- which Cricket does not provide.

Go to www.bbmedic.com They flash phones.

Pearl 8130 Camera feature-i can no longer zoom in and out using the roller ball. How can I fix this?


The first time this happened to me - I took the battery out - when put back in the zoom worked again. After a while the zoom stopped working and just now my rollerball wouldn't scroll down. I tried the solution posted about taking the battery out and doing a figure of 8 with phone facing down on a printed page - it fixed both problems. I hope this helps.
