Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100
I dropped my blackberry and broke my screen, the phone worked still but I could not see anything on the screen, I replaced the screen with a new one and when I put the phone back together and put the battery in I just got a red light for about 3 seconds and nothing else happened, just a black screen.
This happened with my first blackberry and it never turned back on guess what softwar glitch it was never goig to work again so i got a new one the second one started having issues within a month and eventually got to the point where i couldnt wifi it would turn off on me for no reason tell me i had no service when i should have hang up on people freeze and simply sucked took it in to get it fixed guess what another software glitch that one went to blackberry heaven and i got another one this one is only 1 month old has all updated software and hey guess what no issues at all i suppose every phone has bugs in it to begin with look the aple iphone blew up when it first came out until they fixed the issues with it.
if your on a plan ur under warranty with blackberry take it back and there policy basically replaces the phone.

I had this problem today. It was the battery. I replaced the battery and the phone was fine. It did take a while to boot up, small back square with a second hand going clock wise. I also charged the old battery and now that works fine also. It did take a while to charge the old battery, ~half and hour.

This seems to be an on going fault with BB 8100 phones. The internet is full of people with dead ones with black screens and flashing red lights.
My guess is they are stuffed when they get to this point, Its my last BB, here comes an iphone!!!

I tried the cooling off method and it did not work for me. I still get a blank screen and the red flashing light. This is real annoying.

Hi everyone!, I bought a few blackberrys off from Ebay auction, I won it off ( 5 peices of blackberry 6230) for. 99 cent, plus 9.00 for shipping. I was told of that these 5 peices of Blackberry that may or may not work, But can be used for parts, I won it off, and got it. so far ,I went through every one of them , one doesn't work, cause, the led blink once steady and blink three time fast. What is wrong with it? Anyone can explain it to me? much appreciate it! Damian
