My Blackberry also wouldn't turn on, till a sharp tap at the top left of the screen made the screen flicker into life and I realised it was on, just no screen. After intermittent screen failing, repeated tapping seems to have fixed the problem. I'll upgrade to a new Blackberry when my contract allows.

The sim card may not be put in correctly, or it may need to be slid back or fourth a little bit. I had this same problem, but continued playing with my phone until I figured it out, now of course with a blackberry it took awhile to come back on, but no more irritating red light and black screen. Voila!

SOURCE: hoe to unlock Blackberry pearl 8100

Hi pratik. please follow the recommended steps.

Option # 1: GSM Phone Source These guys provide you with remote unlocking of the BlackBerry Pearl 8100 and also the BlackBerry Pearl 8700g.
How it works is pretty simple. You pay for the unlocking service, and when you submit your order, you must include the IMEI number for the Blackberry you are unlocking in the notes section when you are making the Paypal payment. The IMEI Number can be obtained when you enter *#06# from your phone’s keypad, it will display a 15 digit number ( If you have trouble obtaining the IMEI this way you can also find the IMEI number in the Status menu ). Once your order is processed and unlock code is ready, you will be emailed with an unlock code and instructions on how to enter it.
Models supported, including but not limited to are the 8100, Pearl, 8700g, 5xxx Series, 6xxx Series, 7xxx Series.
You have to pay $35 for their service and the turnaround time is usually less than 24 hours. You can visit GSM Phone source here
422851202_762aab9839_m.jpgOption # 2: Unlock to Talk
Unlock to Talk is another good option to unlock your BlackBerry Pearl. They have over 150 satisfied customers with completed orders for unlocking their phones. You can also check the list of their customers with their BlackBerry IMEI numbers and their corresponding Unlock Codes here.
For Unlock to talk service, you end up paying $35.95. Their turnaround time is also around 1 business day or upto 48 hours.
You can visit Unlock to Talk here
Option # 3: T-Mobile or Cingular, your carrier
Yes, you can ask your carrier for an unlock code for your Blackberry and guess what, they do it for it Absolutely FREE. So, what is the catch? The only condition which atleast T-Mobile imposes on its customers before it gives out the unlock codes for the Blackberry Pearl or any other cell phone is that you have to be under the contract for atleast 90 days or 3 months before they can give you the unlock code. So, if you have the patience, I would recommend that you wait for this 3 month time frame before calling up 611 from your T-Mobile phone, talk to customer service and get your unlock codes.
In my search for the Blackberry Unlock codes, I found out that a lot of people mess up before they have no idea how to enter the unlock codes correctly. So, follow this method to enter your Blackberry Unlock code

To unlock your phone you will need to enter the code. This code is just a calculation of IMEI number of your phone. To find your phones IMEI number -type *#06# into your phone or look under the phone battery.

There are different online services that will calculate the unlock code for your IMEI number.
I can recommend this one (cheap and reliable).

Blackberry pearl won't turn on


There are no special ways of turning on the Blackberry.

Simply power on - it is fully charged - if this doesn't work, remove the battery for a couple of seconds and re-try power on.
