Antenna automatic shut off problems for blackberry pearl

Hey, My wireless connection keeps automatically turning itself off after just a few seconds. I go back to the manage connection menu, and check the box that says Mobile network. the little button then turns green indicating i am connected. i exit out of there and attempt to make a call or check an email and the signal then disappears. i go back to the connection menu and it says that the wireless connection is turned off even though i just turned it on. this has become very frustrating. i have never had this problem before and can't understand what precipitated it. Any ideas on what to do? thanks so much The same situation has occured with my Blackberry pearl. After looking at the manage connections menu and turning on my mobile network, after a few seconds, the antenna shuts of again and my connection is lost. I cant send or recieve emails without quickly switching back to the manage connections screen. My only last 16 seconds. I have checked nearly all the websites and this seems to be a very popular problem for the blackberry pearl. But no one has listed any solutions to this malfunction.

    I have the identical problem that Jessica posted above on May 26/09. I haved talked to RIM support and they cannot offer any solution nor can my service provider. It is NOT a battery issue, nor software ... appears to be faulty hardware but cannot find any solution. I'm guessing it could be an internal antenna. Need help please!

I had this problem a few times, but only when I let the battery drop so low that the connection turned itself off to save what little life the battery had. Once that happens I just had to wait for the battery to charge back up so the connection could reestablish itself. If this is the case, just plug it in and give it time.

I think it's a problem with the radio itself. The antenna only responds when the radio is turned on / off. So the antenna sounds like it's working properly.

I cant manually activate my blackberry pearl I went to options, mobile network but all it says is roaming.


See if this works....

-Press menu key
-Click OPTIONS
-Select Mobile Network
-Click on "START PROVISIONING"

It should give you a message saying: PROVISIONING COMPLETED SUCCESFULLY.

You wont need a MSL code if you do it this way.

Blackberry Pearl Radio Issues


First check your settings (In device options make sure auto is off). If that doesn't work you may want to replace the operating system with the most current. You need a PC or laptop and the most recent versions of Blackberry Desktop manager and your phones software.There are instructions at www.blackberry.com/support search for KB03901

Radio keeps shutting off


When there is no signal around ur blackberry will shut off the radio instead of constantly searching for one which really kills battery power just make sure you arent in a real signal dead area and you should be fine to turn it back on just go to manage connections and click it back on,if this is not the problem then there might be some problem with ur phone.

The wireless connection problems for blackberry pearl


I can't think what may have cause it. I would suggest resetting the phone by turning the handset off removing the battery. Leave for 1 minute and re-insert and turn device on.

Go to networks and allow the device to search networks automatically and turn data service on.

Let me know how you get on.

Blackberry Pearl keeps turning mobile connection off.


There might be some issue with the BlackBerry Device Software associated with the BlackBerry smartphone so Upgrade the BlackBerry smartphone with a newer version of BlackBerry Device Software and make sure that you have taken a backup before upgrading.
