Hi, I suggest you to reinstall the software and check the handheld.

If you face the same problem even after reinstalling the software, you need to visit the outlet where you have purchased the handheld to service the handheld

I Hope it helped you. Thank you for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How to Reset a Blackberry


There are three main types of Reset that apply to the Blackberry. These are listed in order below. Instructions for Blackberry Pearl are slightly different - see bottom section of the Tip.

1) Soft Reset - simply press the ALT+RIGHT SHIFT(CAP)+DELETE keys.

This reset stops all applications that are running on the Blackberry and will help if you are having problems connecting the device to computer. This reset will not erase any information from your device.

2) Double Soft Reset - this reset is almost equivalent to a full hard reset. First perform a Soft Reset as outlined in Step 1.

As soon as the screen is no longer black - repeat the steps once again exactly as before.

This takes you to another screen showing an hour glass. Allow the device to reset. This helps if the device has suffered a more serious error. Be aware you may loose some information from your device. A backup is advised prior to proceeding if at all possible.

3) Hard Reset - this is the full blown reset and will fully reset the device to help resolve critical errors with software or hardware. Again back up important information before proceeding if possible.

Note: For RIM models 850, 857, 950, or 957, you must insert the end of a paperclip or similar blunt object into a small recessed hole on the back of the unit and depress the switch inside. The device will reboot and be hard reset.

Other Models: With the device turned on - remove the battery for 30 seconds or more. Now replace the battery. The device will reboot and be hard reset.

Blackberry Pearl: To reset to factory defaults enter 'Options' from the main menu. Scroll to Security Options and press the trackball. Choose 'General Settings'.

Press the left soft key, then scroll to "Wipe Handheld" with the trackball and press the trackball. To initiate the factory reset, your phones security code may be required in order for the process to complete. Your phone will now be restored to its original settings on leaving the factory.

A hard reset can be achieved with the Pearl in the same way as outlined at Step 3 by removing the battery.

Be aware that resets such as these may erase data, such as contacts, ring tones, pictures, text messages and stored Internet files and emails. Make sure to back up important information before hand if at all possible. You can obtain software to back up the device to your computer directly from Blackberry Below.

A hard reset involves physically removing the battery from the smartphone and then reinserting it. To perform a hard reset, complete the following steps:
1) Remove the battery cover from the back of the BlackBerry smartphone.
2) Remove the battery, and then reinsert it after a few seconds.
3) Replace the battery cover.
Still if it is not working the software of your Handheld might got corrupted, in this you need to reinstal the software or walk into the service center.
Thank you for using Fixya.

Blackberry flip pearl constantly reboots.


I've had the same problem, particularly after upgrading the OS. I've been able to keep it reboot free for 24 hours after resending the service books from the bberry portal (and I'm even using it unlocked from T-Mobile on AT&T).

The display on the BlackBerry smartphone will turn off to indicate that the reset has started, and the keys can now be released.
