The problem is the connection between the camera and the circuit board.

I fix my Blackberry Curve 3300 by

1)cleaning the lense

2)apply light to medium downward force on the around the glass.
NOT ON THE GLASS

Listen for light a plastic snap.
The lense is going back into the housing....that's a good sign.

Test the camera.

If you are getting green or blue tint of partial image then you are have a good change to get it going.

The last step is to give it gentle to med. tap on the side.

If all works well the camera and contacts will re-sit itself onto the circuit board.


Please post the result on the comment window.

SOURCE: hoe to unlock Blackberry pearl 8100

Hi pratik. please follow the recommended steps.

Option # 1: GSM Phone Source These guys provide you with remote unlocking of the BlackBerry Pearl 8100 and also the BlackBerry Pearl 8700g.
How it works is pretty simple. You pay for the unlocking service, and when you submit your order, you must include the IMEI number for the Blackberry you are unlocking in the notes section when you are making the Paypal payment. The IMEI Number can be obtained when you enter *#06# from your phone’s keypad, it will display a 15 digit number ( If you have trouble obtaining the IMEI this way you can also find the IMEI number in the Status menu ). Once your order is processed and unlock code is ready, you will be emailed with an unlock code and instructions on how to enter it.
Models supported, including but not limited to are the 8100, Pearl, 8700g, 5xxx Series, 6xxx Series, 7xxx Series.
You have to pay $35 for their service and the turnaround time is usually less than 24 hours. You can visit GSM Phone source here
422851202_762aab9839_m.jpgOption # 2: Unlock to Talk
Unlock to Talk is another good option to unlock your BlackBerry Pearl. They have over 150 satisfied customers with completed orders for unlocking their phones. You can also check the list of their customers with their BlackBerry IMEI numbers and their corresponding Unlock Codes here.
For Unlock to talk service, you end up paying $35.95. Their turnaround time is also around 1 business day or upto 48 hours.
You can visit Unlock to Talk here
Option # 3: T-Mobile or Cingular, your carrier
Yes, you can ask your carrier for an unlock code for your Blackberry and guess what, they do it for it Absolutely FREE. So, what is the catch? The only condition which atleast T-Mobile imposes on its customers before it gives out the unlock codes for the Blackberry Pearl or any other cell phone is that you have to be under the contract for atleast 90 days or 3 months before they can give you the unlock code. So, if you have the patience, I would recommend that you wait for this 3 month time frame before calling up 611 from your T-Mobile phone, talk to customer service and get your unlock codes.
In my search for the Blackberry Unlock codes, I found out that a lot of people mess up before they have no idea how to enter the unlock codes correctly. So, follow this method to enter your Blackberry Unlock code

SOURCE: free unlock of blackberry pearl 8100

To unlock your phone you will need to enter the code. This code is just a calculation of IMEI number of your phone. To find your phones IMEI number -type *#06# into your phone or look under the phone battery.

There are different online services that will calculate the unlock code for your IMEI number.
I can recommend this one (cheap and reliable).

Note: don't share your IMEI number on free forums like this.

My blackberry pearl 8100 wont turn on. The screen is black and the red light blinks 4 times and then stops!


Your Blackberry probably just needs a firmware restore. Here's a guide on how to restore the blackberry firmware, the website is at : Restore Blackberry to factory settings. Download the Blackberry Desktop manager and run the application loader. If it asks you for a password, you can enter it 10x wrong and that will wipe the blackberry as well.
