Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100
My BB Pearl deletes sent SMS messages, wont' receive any SMS messages and won't log any calls. I have only had the phone a few weeks so the memory is not full. What can I do?
Go into options, firewall and make sure nothing is checked off!!!

I've been having this same problem since I got the phone. The only solution I've found so far is to turn the phone off and take the battery out for about 30 seconds. When you put everything back in it should reboot the phone and everything should start working again. Unfortunatly the issue still happens and I'm not sure whats triggering it. It has something to do with the phone's radio modem - at least I think thats what it is because the phone gives me an error message that the "radio is off". I'm still searching the phone and the web to try to find a solution. Hope this helps.

Hi, this is because BB's curves have a memory leak issue, and hwne the memory starts running out, they delete emails and txt to make cache room for the OS. Pulling the battery out while the device is on is called a hard reset, This will temporarily fix the issue, But basically it is an OS flaw with the new Curves and some Pearls.

Had the exact same problem and also my phone was not storing missed calls or updating any call log......... amazingly when i reset the call log from 30 to 7 days, then back again, it fixed the call log problem and the SMS problem all in one go... obviously a software switch that just needed to be flicked.

Hi there, could you backup your file first and then wipe your handheld, the wipe handheld menu is inside the advanced setting, and then go to security, and then click the menu button, it will show wipe handheld, got mine similiar to yours and works ok now
but remember, backup your files first

The reason your phone is doing this is because your phone does not have enough memory to store this information. I recently had the same problem and to solve it I bought a memory card for the phone, but if you don't wish to spend money simply delete all the recordings and pictures on the phone leaving room for the sms messages and call logs. The only other thing i can think of is that your phone is on the wrong number therefore, press the send button, and right on the top look at which line you're on it should be line 1 but you could accidentally have switched it to line 2.

I have had the same problem a couple of times, in fact just now, which is whay brought me here. I pulled the battery out for a few seconds and then put it back in. It rebooted and is fine now, but I'm still frustrated. If it happens again I'm going to take it back. But for anyone out there, taking the battery out should do the trick, at least for the time being.

I had the same problem with my phone, so i turned my WI-FI on and got my friend to text me, it came through straight away, and then all my other messages came through, good luck!
