Try removing your Facebook app from the phone. Had the same issue and I stopped receiving emails. Once I removed the Facebook app from the phone - it rebooted and all my emails showed up.

When i turn on my blackberry pearl or plug it to my computer it wont turn on. so what should i do?

You have not indicated if the blackberry will run when absent a battery it is plugged into a charger. If it does, that suggests a battery problem and you simply need to replace the battery. If a red light blinks on the blackberry when you try the above, try a hard reset. But before that, try the below.

Push and hold the call button and alternate with the end call button until the hourglass shows. Allow some time to boot up.

Here is the hard reset procedure:

You may contact Blackberry support if this does not work.

I have a blackerry flip phone just blinked out and i cant get it 2 come back on, the red light comes on 4 about 10 seconds and goes back off, help please !!!

staeyevans55 HI soorry to hear your having problems with your pearl. I need you to make sure you back up yout information on your phone. Use the blackberry desktop manager . If you are getting power to the phone we will be able to save your contacts. Now if you have a memory card take it out of the phone. I now need you to plug the phone in see if it is charging. charging port may be bas on your pearl. You will have to see if you can buy a replacement battery. This will tell you if the phone is working properly or not. A fully charge battery in the phone can help you see if it is charging properly . Another tip clean the connections and the charging port with can air and a toothbrush. their could be corrison on the in the port or on the contacts. Hope this information help

Blackberry Pearl will not turn on! Not the same problem as others

Have you tried connecting it to your pc via the USB cable and launching the Desktop Manager application? If the desktop manager can see it, you may be able to replace the operating system and get it going again. Try contacting your service provider for assistance. They should have several options to try and get it going again for you.

Cheers and good-luck!

My blackberry pearl has a battery showing with a red line through it. I have charged the battery and put a brand new battery that is charged in it but the same signal keeps showing up.

There might be a problem with the USB cable. Kindly walk into the service center to get a new USB cable and try charging the Handheld.

My blackberry pearl 8100 wont turn on

I have an answer for the 3-2 red light blink w/black screen. Remove the battery, hold the end call button and put the battery back in. The red light should stay on for a while now. Push and hold the call button and alternate with the end call button untill the hourglass shows. Allow some time to boot up. I stumbled upon this, so if this doesnt work, try simmilar procedrues. I did get mine to work. Good Luck, dont give up, it flashes that 3-2 code for a reason.
