Backup contacts or any pertinent information using desktop manager. Then go to options, security, General Settings. Click on option key (Bberry Key). Wipe Blackberry, type blackberry in the screen. Warning this will erase everything off your blackberry but since you have backed it up first you can restore your contacts or pertinent files. When you run through the wipe process you do not have to delete all 3rd party applications but I have found if you are having a memmory problem that can cause this fault you may need to install a memory card of at least 2gb or more then go to options media card and change the prompt to yes so that it will use the card instead of storning on the device. The pearl is notorius for memory issues without using storage card/media card or saving to device instead of card. Check with web for various memory hole issues and suggested fixes.

You need to have the hardware installer disk/cd that comes with the phone and download all the applications from the disk/cd so that the AIM will work because the icon for AIM is on but the program thing isn't....thats how i got my AIM to work on this phone. Or just say screw it and get the iPhone instead lol

You must have a blackberry data connection on your account to enable multi media messaging. If you are using your blackberry but are not paying for the internet connection then at the minimum you must have a pay per use data connection. If you are using an unlocked blackberry on a network other than the one it was intended for you may have a service book/wap settings issue.

Blackberry flip pearl constantly reboots.

I've had the same problem, particularly after upgrading the OS. I've been able to keep it reboot free for 24 hours after resending the service books from the bberry portal (and I'm even using it unlocked from T-Mobile on AT&T).

Internet no longer working

Dear JenBrodar,

it looks like your internet connection is struggling to get enough signal to connect your blackberry. I am not sure which network provider you are with and what kind of data package usage you have in your tariff but you can try this. pull out your blackberry battery from back without switching off your blackberry, then pull out SIM card and leave everything out for 1min then put it back everything. try to use internet when you see it has recognize again your network provider and you are getting full signals.

if this doesn't help then please provide more details about exact blackberry model number, mobile network provider and if you know about data service usage. in simple language data services enables you to use internet on your blackberry.

hope this helps and works fine.

Many Thanks.

Picture Message

you need to call your service provider (mine is TMobile) and tell them to turn on Black Berry Feature Enabler (This allows customers with certain Blackberry devices who are not signed up for BlackBerry service to enjoy phone features such as Picture Messaging, Instant Messaging and t-zones.) this is directly from their site, and this service is 100% free
