Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

1 Answer

"EDGE" replaced with "GSM" on Blackberry Pearl 8100

My data service has turned off, and I can't figure out how to turn it on again. I know the area I'm in has EDGE service, because I use my phone here every day without problems. However, I haven't been able to send texts or emails and where it used to say EDGE on the top right corner of my screen it says GSM instead. How do I get my data service to turn back on?

The GSM is all you have in this area, at this time. Could be for a variety of reasons, including bandwidth
or lack of same on your local tower, and unless you are one of the lucky few to beat the cut, before only
GSM is allowed on, you will not have EDGE service.

I need to unlock my blackberry pearl 8100 in order for it to work on another network. currently its on rogers IMEI # 355507.02.083608.1 please can u help


Its simple all you need to do is buy an unlock code from a website like http://blackberryimeiunlockcode.net/ or any other website, on website order your unlock code by entering your imei number & network which your bb locked to. You`ll get your unlock code through e-mail with in few minutes with instructions of entering the unlock code. Just follow the instructions for entering the code & That`s it your blackberry has now unlocked & then you can use it with any GSM Sim card worldwide.

The Website will give you the blackberry unlock code as cheaper, as well as much faster (within 1 minute) than a shopkeeper does. Website also gives you a 100% money back guarantee if the code does not work. This is the best way to get unlock code for your bb & unlock it from the comfort of your home.

Unlocking through code is permanent means it cannot be re lock again itself!!!

This might be the Hardware issue you need to walk into the service center to check the hardware of your Handheld.
Thank you for using Fixya.

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

I cant get onthe internet


You have to change the -data account- to GPRS, dialing is for GSM. And you have to configure your -data account- to the settings that you can get from your service provider.
