Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

1 Answer

Wireless Switching Off

Every now and then my Pearl decides to switch off wireless communication. There doesn't appear to be any pattern to it, it just happens.
Once its switched off, I can't send or receive SMS and presumably won't receive calls.
I've tried going to the "Turn Wireless On / Off" toggle but this still seems to think Wireless is on so the only option is to turn it Off!
Usually, while I'm messing around trying to fix the problem, it comes back on, all on its own.
This is one of those nagging issues that just makes using this phone a PITA at times.
Any ideas?

    Was looking for a solution online and nice to know I'm not the only one having this problem. No rhyme or reason, just does it. Various parameters (bluetooth on/off, locked/unlocked, etc.) and hints would be appreciated.

    i've had the same problem. I'll be expecting a call and it wont come, so i'll check my phone and the wireless turned itself off. I took out my sim card and battery and dusted everything, and let it sit for an hour or so. After putting back in SIM and battery i havent had the problem.

    I am having the same issue with my Blackbery Pearl 8100 on the Telus Network. I look at my phone to see the time or to check a message, only to find out that my phone has shut off the wireless connection. I have updated my Blackberry Software, and updated my roaming lists with Telus (which they claimed would work), yet I am still missing all phone calls and messages.

I am having the same issue with BB 7190 with mike (walkie talkie) network. I have similar issues. It started off with the phone disconnecting from the network. It would take a long time to reconnect. Thereafter, the wireless would turn on/off at it own accord. I changed the phone with the service provider two times and they finally agreed that it was not the phone. They thought it was the SIM card and a new one was installed. Still the same problem. A friend gave me his own BB 7190 with mike and I have the same issue. Calling the technical support resulted in them opening a work ticket indicated a network issue. The result was not a network but a software issue. I have been out of a phone for the last month with no success from the telephone service provider ... Telus in Canada. My comment is that Telus and other carriers are turning to GPM network (international network) and they are sorting out of issues. Todate, I don't have a phone that works and so far, I am not impressed with the BB.

My KC550 lg does nt run internet .I received settings also but it give s communication error.why?


First what is a KC550 lg , laptop , deskop , mobile phone.
Im assuming phone have you synced with the wireless router ?
Connecting your LG phone to wireless Internet is easy to accomplish with phones that can receive Wi-Fi signals.
You may decide to use the Wi-Fi capabilities in the event that you do not receive the best signal from your wireless provider at your home or office.
If this is the case, then hooking up to a Wi-Fi network near you could provide you with a faster connection to the Internet and a more reliable signal to send e-mails, texts and pictures.
Press the "Applications" tab on the home screen of your phone.
Scroll down the list of applications until you reach the "Settings" option.
Press "Settings" to bring up the menu.


Locate and click the "Wireless & Network" or "Connections" option within the "Settings" menu.
Select the "Wi-Fi Setting" or "Wireless Manager" option, then select the network that you want to connect to and click "OK."
All of the available wireless networks within your range will appear.

Enter the wireless network password (usually located bottom of router) if you are connecting to a secure network.
Press the "Done" button followed by the "Connect" button.

Selecting the wireless function Follow the steps below to select the wireless function to be activated when you set the WIRELESS switch on your computer to on. Double-click (wireless switch icon) on the Notification area at the bottom right of the desktop.The Wireless Device Switch dialog box appears. Hints The appearance of the wireless switch icon changes depending on the selected wireless function. Point to the wireless switch icon to display the selected wireless function. Alternatively, you can right-click the wireless switch icon and select "show Wireless Device Switch settings" to display the Wireless Device Switch dialog box. Select the desired wireless function from "Wireless LAN" or "Bluetooth Device". Notes 5 GHz Wireless LAN is available on certain models only. You must select at least one wireless function to perform wireless communications. The 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wireless LAN functions employ different frequency bandwidths, thus are not compatible with each other. Checking the check box for both "Enable 2.4 GHz Wireless LAN" and "Enable Bluetooth Device" may cause poor communication performance or a connection loss due to electromagnetic interference. Click OK. The message "Setting up the wireless devices. Process may take several minutes. Please wait." appears first, then the Wireless Device Switch dialog box is closed, and finally the dialog box that describes what to do with the icon on the Notification area appears. Note While the message "Setting up the Wireless Devices. Process may take several minutes. Please wait." is displayed, do not: place your computer into power saving mode. turn off Windows or log off from the current user. turn on and off the WIRELESS switch. Confirm the settings and click OK. The dialog box about the icon on the Notification area closes. Hint If you check the "Don't show this dialog in the future" check box, the dialog box will not appear next time you close the Wireless Device Switch dialog. To analyze the network condition You can analyze the network condition if you select either or both of the wireless functions under "Wireless LAN" in step 2 above. Click the "Diagnose" button to start Windows Network Diagnostics. When the network analysis is complete, the result is displayed. If any problems are found, follow the on-screen instructions. Hint Windows Network Diagnostics is the function to identify problems the network has and present solutions to them.

How to program control with light switch


If I understand correctly, you have the Lutron Pico wireless control
And you have the Lutron Maestro companion switch or companion dimmer
Pico will not work with ordinary wall switch or dimmer >> it has to be a companion product from Lutron

I have read the PICO wireless manual, and it shows no instructions for communicating with the companion wireless switch or companion wireless dimmer

http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/369-144f_Pico_Wireless_Control_SpecSub%20%286%29.pdf

I have read the 120V Companion switch manual and it shows no instructions for communicating with the PICO wireless control

http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/030865c.pdf

1-800-523-9466 for technical support
Technical support online appears at page bottom

Normally manuals give you some clue as to how the product works.
The PICO manual says it's easy to control lights (I guess it's easy for mind-readers)
There seems to be no answer or hint when working with the PICO.
I think Lutron tech support is where you go from here.

Let us know what you discover

I just purchased a GE wireless keyboard and mouse. The keyboard works fine but the mouse will not move on any surface. It works if you use it on a mouse pad or a towel etc. I have always used wireless and...


First of all, even wireless laser or optical mice tend to work much better with a slight texture/pattern under it so it has a way of locating/measuring/sensing your movements, since they communicate to the pc upon visual movement, to by force, motion, etc....

Try putting a peice of paper that's full of text under it. Also Make sure the Mouse has a battery in it....I'm only mentioning this since some folks don't realize that ALL wireless devices for PCs require a battery.

I would actually recommend switching brands from GE to LOGITECH. Logitech is better in my opinion.

Is off and on


There are several generic problems reported with wireless routers and interruptions.

First a possible windows bug was reported where the combination of a hidden SSID and WEP or WPA encryption causes the router to appear to disconnect temporarily. The recomendation for this was to retain encryption (WEP / WPA) and show the SSID.

Second interference from other wireless devices in the area -- sometimes not computer related like phones. There are 11 channels for wireless communications switching the channel particularly from the general default of 6 to 1 or 11 sometimes helps. If one doesn't work try the other.
