Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

BB PEARL 8110 SHUTS OFF

Hi! I recently got the BB Pearl 8110 and I have been very happy with it until the follwoing issue has started: Every so often (at least once a week), I will check my fon and it will be off / dead. I try to turn it on, although I had not turned it off, to no avail. Temporary solution is to remove the battery and put it back it, before turning the fon on again. After I turn it on, it takes around 5 minutes (blank white screen with hourglass) to reboot. I also get a bar showing "checking security software" before it finaly turns on. Any help available?

Thanks a million

    hi maingame123,



    this is a personal cell and I do not use the email capability. So you would recommend to download the software again? best from the cd or from BB website?

    Thanks again for your help!

    Is this a personal phone or a company phone used w/ work emails ?

    if its for work you have to call company tech support or you will lose email capability

    It sounds like you need to update/reinstall the device's software

There is an issue with your firmware. You will need to do is:
1. Unplug BB from PC.
2. Launch the "Application Loader" like you were going to install something.
3. While the app loader is attempting to connect to the BB, plug the USB cable into the BB.

I have a bb 8320 and when i plug it into the wall it charges but when i plug it into my laptop nothing happens why is that?


If your regular charger is working in the wall, it sounds like the USB cord that you are using with your computer isn't a "charging" USB. I don't think you are having a malfunction with your BB.

My blackberry 8100 can't open


If you are having problems with your Blackberry Pearl 8100, 8110, 8120 or 8130, you might want to wipe all of the data off of it and start fresh. You may want to try resetting the device first by removing the battery from the unit for about 5 seconds and reinserting it. If that doesn’t help things, proceed with these steps to erase all data on the device.
You may want to backup your data before trying these steps.
1. On the Home screen, select Options.
2. Select Security Options.
3. Click General Settings.
4. Press the Menu key.
5. Click Wipe Handheld.
6. Click Continue.
7. Type blackberry.
All the data on your BlackBerry Pearl will then be deleted.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
