  • BlackBerry Devices take a while to turn on, so be sure you have waited atleast 5 minutes for it to turn on
  • Make sure the battery isnt dead (plug in charger)
  • Try pulling out the battery and re-inserting it.
  • If none of the above steps worked, try this:
  1. Plug your BlackBerry into the computer.
  2. Download the latest version of the Blackberry operating system from your carrier.
  3. install it to your Blackberry using Desktop Manager

  • If it isn't recognized by the computer, or the install dosent work, call your carrier for a warranty repair.

Blackberry Pearl will not turn on! Not the same problem as others


Have you tried connecting it to your pc via the USB cable and launching the Desktop Manager application? If the desktop manager can see it, you may be able to replace the operating system and get it going again. Try contacting your service provider for assistance. They should have several options to try and get it going again for you.

Cheers and good-luck!

Phone turns into a white screen with hourglass in the middle then shuts off. happens several times a day.


Hi it is because the BlackBerry Pearl 8100 smartphone cannot initialize the BlackBerry Device Software or there is a corrupt operating system file.
To resolve this issue, reload the BlackBerry Device Software on the BlackBerry Pearl 8100 smartphone.
To perform an installation of the BlackBerry Device Software using BlackBerry Desktop Manager version 4.5 to 5.0, perform the following steps:
1) Open BlackBerry Desktop Manager. 2) Connect the BlackBerry smartphone to the computer and open the BlackBerry Desktop Manager. 3) Double-click Application Loader.
4) Click Start under Update Software to start the installation process.
5) Type your BlackBerry smartphone password, if prompted, and click OK.
6) Select Options under Device Software Options.
7) Select the check boxes next to the names of the applications to be loaded, and then click Next.
8) Click OK > Next > Finish.
9) When the process has completed, the message The loading operation was successful will appear.
10) Click Close to return to the BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
I hope this information will be helpful to you.

The hourglass on my blackberry pearl stays on..phone won't boot


I would download the latest Blackberry OS from Blackberry.com and install it via the Desktop Manager. You can get the latest OS from this URL:
https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code=577BCC914F9E55D5E4E4F82F9F00E7D4

You can find the model by removing the battery and it should be on a sticker.

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.
