Blackberry Pearl 8120 - sms, email and call log being deleted

For a few weeks now my blackberry 8120 pearl has started deleting selective emails, sms messages and may call log. In fact after making 2 or 3 calls they appear in the call log for say an hour then disappear. The emails and sms messages that are being deleted are random from previous days so it is not as though it is deleting older one first. I have set my messages to be kept forever so its not an issue here. I have chnaged my SIM card but this has made no difference. I have also tried cleaning the SIM card and alos taking the battery out several times but to no effect. Any suggestions?

On the Status screen of the BlackBerry smartphone, the File Free field indicates low ,if the device memory is full then these things will happen on your device,so to never have this problem delete unwanted applications.To delete run desktop manager and select application loader,select the applications that are not frequently used and remove them.Also keep the messages for a month or two because these mails will be there in your mail box.

I'm selling my blackberry pearl, and I can't delete my email accounts. My phone is deactivated. Is there I way I can delete it without activating my blackberry feature?


you should be able to login to your blackberry webclient and delete the accounts from there. depending on what carrier you're on, just google blackberry webclient for you carrier. login using the username/password you created when you set up the emails, and you can delete the accounts on there.

Blackberry Pearl: memory issues?


I do apologize you are having this issue with the Blackberry pearl 8100. Lovely device.
The manufactur, RIM is aware of the memory issue. It's a known malfunction of the device. Luckily, there's a way to fix it, and keep your pictures, logs, address book, etc.. from deleting.
First, you should have a 1GB card for your photos.
Second your phone stores what it does. So, when ever you exit an application press the back button. NOT the hang up button. It'll only leave that application running in the back ground.
Third, you can clear history by holding on ALT+LG+LG. You'll get an event log. Press MENU key, and select "Clear history".
Next, clear the cashe. Open up Internet browser, press the menu key and select clear cashe. Once you have done that, press the back button to the begining. Save all pictures on the memory card. If you don't have memory card, connect your Blackberry to your PC and use the desk top manager to sync your media over via USB cord.
Now, that you are connected via USB cord and have the desk top manager up, run application loader. This should take a total of 20 minutes. Do not REMOVE from the cord. You'll ruin the OS on the Pearl.
Once all is cleared out, and updated. Do a check on your camera, your call log, and sms's. Periodically, delete your text messages. I would say, once or twice a month run the application loader. You can always check out www.t-mobile.com/bbupgrade for the latest and great software for you Blackberry. Or, go to www.blackberry.com/btsc for tips & tricks!
RIM always updates their software every 2-4 months. That way you'll keep your Blackberry longer and stronger! Enjoy!

Cheers!
