You MUST let it dry out throughly before you try using it again. You run the risk of shorting something out permanently. Some say open it up and lay it on a cookie sheet at 200 degrees for an hour or so. Others say put it in a tub of rice to let the rice pull the moisture out. I found success by just taking everything out (battery, sim) and/or apart (covers, back) that I could and letting it dry out for a few days by my heater vent. Whatever you do, DON'T put it in the dryer or on top of the toaster as some have suggested. That will definitely damage it more, lol.

I cant receive anythin om my bluetooth yet i can send,,,my device cant be paired


Hi,the BlackBerry Pearl is a versatile mobile phone. It's primarily a Smartphone that's suitable for business use but it's also equipped with some decent entertainment features. The pearl can also play music files which you can enjoy with the help of a hands free Bluetooth headset. Let me teach you how to pair a Blackberry Pearl Smartphone to a Bluetooth headset.


Things You'll Need:

* Blackberry Pearl Smartphone
* Bluetooth headset

Turn on your Bluetooth headset by pressing and holding the multifunction button.


Check if the LED light is a solid blue. Turn off the headset and repeat the first step if the light is blinking.


Activate the Bluetooth wireless connection on your BlackBerry Pearl by Going into your "Settings" menu

Select the "Options" menu to go to your connectivity settings

Click on the "Bluetooth" option to activate the connection


Choose the "Add Device" option on your BlackBerry Pearl to locate the headset


Wait for a while as your Smartphone locates the Bluetooth headset


Enter 0000 for the password after selecting the headset to complete the Bluetooth pairing process


After that, your Done !!!!you can now send and receive. But after following this instruction and no solution yet, that means there is something wrong with your blue tooth. Corrupted. You will need to reset the phone.

Tip

This does work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but you have to put it in the rice as soon as...


Take it out of the water and remove the battery. Then put the battery in dry rice and cover it overnight. The rice sucks out all the water and you should be ready to go. It worked for me.

Blackberry pearl 8130 locked by personal code


You can reset the phone by going to Options > General Settings > Security > Blackberry button and wiping the entire handheld.
That usually does a pretty good job of clearing the handset. If that doesn't do it, then you might have to reflash it by going to the carriers website and redownloading the software.
One final thing - it might be the PUK code. If thats the case, then try putting your SIM card into the phone (if its a GSM Blackberry)

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.
