Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

Won't delete text messages!

I just got my Blackberry pearl about two weeks ago. Yesterday I recieved my first text message, but now it won't let me delete it. I have had no problems deleting e-mails, but for some reason it won't let this text message go. And to add to my confusion, The mailbox says it is deleted, and so does the SMS inbox. It only shows up on my home screen (where I have my inbox) any thoughts?

    I have the same exact problem. I have had two text messages for about a month that will not delete. I have read the manual and went to the Blackeberry website but to no avail. Any suggestions from anyone?

    Thanks! I did take out the battery and put it back and it worked. I wish there was a less scary way of doing it, but I guess it works for now

Dont take out the battery, Dont do anything anyone else may tell you. Plug it into your computer and create a backup of your blackberry, Then WIPE IT (dont worry about contacts or anything you wont lose anything). Now simple as creating the back up, RESTORE YOUR PHONE!!! :) Wow texts are gone -clap-. (ps. I have had this problem with every blackberry and this is the only permenant and ever working solution)

OK, after reading that some people fix their issues by taking out the battery and then putting it back it, I tried it and it worked! I am sure it will happen again and there has to be another way to clear them, but this works for now.

Hope you have the same results!

Not receiving text messages


You are running out of memory, just free up your memory. You can do this by doing some or all of the following:

  • Clear your log (hold alt and press lglg>then menu key>select "Clear Log">confirm)
  • Close programs you're not currently using (hold alt and back button) Some items will always be running like messages, phone, browser, home screen so on and so forth, leave those running
  • Uninstall themes and programs that you are not using anymore (Options>Advanced Options>Applications) [Leave the following applications on the phone or you will have trouble: BlackBerry "Version # i.e. 4.2" Core Applications; BlackBerry System Software; BlackBerry Attachment Service; Browser; Help; Phone. The rest are if you use them or not i.e. Tasks; MemoPad, BB Messenger, if you don't use them then you can delete them without major problems on your phone)
  • Move photos, music, video and other multimedia over to your disc instead on the actual BB device. Also delete ringtones that you no longer use
  • From your desktop uninstall languages that you do not need
  • Delete out your old text messages and emails, try to save them on your computer instead of your laptop (with email) or forward text messages that you need to your email then delete the actual text message
This should be a good start to clearing out your memory and start receiving text messages again along with your call logs showing up. If you remove an application it will ask to reboot, let it and then send a text message from online to make sure that you're up and working again. Then maintenance your BlackBerry about every week afterwards depending on your storing habits. Hope it works!
