Blackberry pearl will not recognize my USB


Try the usb with some other USB devices if it works well with them then it sure is not the cord. Then it could be your usb port on your computer or the blackberry that is giving you problem. Test them both to see which one has the problem. Swap the blackberry on differnt ports on the computer. Do this to trace the problem.

If it's the USB port on the blackberry that's faulty then you'll need to visit a certified technician to do this.

Good Luck
