Re: Blackberry Pearl Cell

Sounds like either firmware of software.....first things first.....remove the battery and put it back in.....if that doesnt fix it, plug it into your PC to see if your pc recognises the phone, if so, you will need to reinstall the software....depending on your service provider depends on where you need to go....i dont know all of the websites, but i know that t-mobile's is . i also know that you cannot downlaod the device software from only the desktop manager you can get from that site. good luck!

Sad to say but being a Blackberry Pearl. It can be a number of different problems.

It can be the battery is fried, the battery pin connector is fried, the OS could be "nuked" meaning it just corrupted it's self. and so on and so on.

Blackberry Pearls have loads of problems.

Try and visit their forums. They have professionals that dedicate their lives to Blackberry on there with tutorials, and all kinds of help

I'm sorry. I hoped that helped you out

Blackberry pearl 8130. screen wont come on.

To help you with this problem, I want you to know that when a cellphone got fell, the main problem will be make is lost in display,you will not see anything but you can hear something like message tone and start-up tone, you can also receive calls. Don't be worry with that kind of problem. To tell you whats happening inside your phone is your LCD of display connection is only misaligned. Get it to the nearest cellphone repair center to get your cellphone to be open by a technician and probably they will do dismantling your phone and fix the problem. Hope this could help. Don't forget to say thanks..:-)

My blackberry pearl won't reset

I have had this happen, too. Take the battery out for a few minutes, then try again. Also, try removing the battery and hooking up to your PC with the USB cable. Sometimes, this will mysteriously go away, but I have known of a few folks that had to replace the unit.

Blackberry pearl wont go past the white screen with the hour glas

the only thing that you can do with this issue is try wiping the software clean and reinstalling fresh software. You would need the blackberry desktop manager first installed on your home computer. If you dont have the cd the program is more then likely available on your mobile providers website. Once the program is downloaded and installed follow these directions

To perform this procedure, follow the steps below:
  1. Remove the battery from the BlackBerry device.
  2. Double-click Application Loader in BlackBerry Desktop Manager while the BlackBerry device is not connected to the computer.
  3. Click Next on the Welcome to the Application Loader Wizard screen.
  4. When the Communication Port Selection screen appears, connect the BlackBerry device.
  5. When the USB-PIN option appears, click Next. The Device Application Selection screen should appear.
  6. Re-insert the battery and allow the process to complete.
