Question about RIM BlackBerry 8700g Smartphone

Radio turns off by itself

I've had an ongoing problem with two different 8700G's where the radio shuts itself off without my intervention. To make a call or get email I have to manually turn the radio back on. There's no pattern to it. One day it will happen once, the next day five times. T-Mobile already replaced the battery twice and replaced the BB once as well.

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...


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 :

This would be a long procedure.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Well if you are tied to a particular network all you have to do is to unlock your phone to use it any other GSM network. You can get the unlock code through online. Give your IMEI number & get the unlock code for ur mobile .............You also get through online..........I will suggest the website which is doing good service can approach this website.

8700g shuts down and won't turn back on

the issue is not clear...tell me is it about a battery problem you're telling about or the internal options of a cell. if its the second one, ie.not a physical problem of the phone board or battery, then let it be anything , can be solved in the options and settings menu bar. go through the users manual wisely and if the problem still persists contact me @
