Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

1 Answer

My blackberry pearl pink has suddenly started over the last week to shut itself off, even with a full charge. It never did this before. what is going on, I can't depend on my phone anymore, it shuts off while I am in bed, it shuts off while I am doing something and it takes me a while to figure out it is off...and it isn't the sleep button, I have never had this problem until a week ago.

Have seen this on the blackberry forums and there is no real consensus on what causes it (other than memory leaks). You can try doing a hardware reset (pulling battery and sim card, letting it sit for a few minutes and putting sim card and batt back and turn on). I have 4.5 on my Blackberry Pearl and have not experienced and weird OS resets my self unless I have too many apps open. You can try updating the OS by going to your respective carrier. Mine is Tmobile and you can find the 4.5 for the 8100 here

Hope this helps,
Bill

I have a Blackberry Pearl 8130, the mobile network shuts off by itself. When it try to provision, the phone states that the radio is shut off. How do I fix this problem so the radio stays on all the...


Hi,

This is unfortunately a known issue with the Pearl. There are a couple reasons to why this happens. If your battery is defective, then your phone will sporadically believe that your phone is low on battery (even when its not), this will cause your phone to kick the radio off by itself--even every 5 minutes. Try cleaning the battery contacts or even try a new battery. Another reason is a faulty OS, if the battery replacement doesn't work, then the problem is with your OS and will have to be re-installed. I know this sounds like a hassle, but its a known issue and it should take care of your problems.

Below is the procedure :

Hope i helped you.

My blackberry pearl 8220 flip does not last enough even though I charge it daily for the amount of charge needed.


If your not using bluetooth make sure it's turned off, and check your screen settings, brightness and backlight time, perhaps you could find a setting there you can save power with.

Antenna automatic shut off problems for blackberry pearl


I had this problem a few times, but only when I let the battery drop so low that the connection turned itself off to save what little life the battery had. Once that happens I just had to wait for the battery to charge back up so the connection could reestablish itself. If this is the case, just plug it in and give it time.

Battery dies fast!


well only the people that doesnt have internet or anything like that, you might need to do this.
1) go to Options.
2) go to Mobile Network
3) then where it says Data Services, it have to be turned off.
That happened to my phone and now is normal like before.

Blackberry pearl troubleshooting


My phone does the same and i realized that it seems to have something to do with the yahoo messanger and the facebook mobile apps i have installed. It improved once i deleted any such messaging application even though the problem did not dissappear completely.
