You will need to reload the operating system of the device.

Make sure you backup the phone however you can. Put as much stuff on the SD card or SIM card as much as you can.

The device operating system will depend on your carrier, you will need to download the operating system from there. Wipe the device, connect it to your computer and it should recognize it.

When Connected select USB PIN: UNKNOWN (If the device still cannot connect to the computer, there may be a windows side driver problem, or more likely there is something wrong with the BB hardware.)

Start the Apploader from the BB desktop Manager

Select a Reinstall of the OS. It will take about an hour to reinstall the OS.

Phone turns into a white screen with hourglass in the middle then shuts off. happens several times a day.


Hi it is because the BlackBerry Pearl 8100 smartphone cannot initialize the BlackBerry Device Software or there is a corrupt operating system file.

5) Type your BlackBerry smartphone password, if prompted, and click OK.
6) Select Options under Device Software Options.
7) Select the check boxes next to the names of the applications to be loaded, and then click Next.
8) Click OK > Next > Finish.
9) When the process has completed, the message The loading operation was successful will appear.
10) Click Close to return to the BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
I hope this information will be helpful to you.

Blackberry red light then reboots!


This behavior indicates that no applications are installed on the BlackBerry smartphone.

CAUSE: The Application Loader tool in BlackBerry® Desktop Manager removed existing
applications from the BlackBerry smartphone, but failed to install new applications.
RESOLUTION:-
1) Verify that BlackBerry Device Software is installed on the computer.
2) If the BlackBerry smartphone is connected to a laptop computer using a docking station,disconnect the docking station from the laptop computer and connect the BlackBerry smartphone directly to the laptop computer.
3) If a third-party application uses the same communications port as the BlackBerry Desktop Software, close the third-party application.
4) If you use a USB adapter to connect the BlackBerry smartphone to a serial port, temporarily connect the BlackBerry smartphone to a USB port.
5) In the BlackBerry Desktop Manager, double-click Application Loader.
6) Follow the Application Loader tool prompts to install the BlackBerry Device Software.

My phone Wants me to reset it


Try to connect to it using the desktop software. you can download this from either your service provider website or, blackberry.com If you can connect to it back the phone up using the software then reset it to factory and put the backup on phone using the same software ... it will be for pearl 8100. If you cannot connect to phone you can try the service provider to see if they can recover it. But I am guessing the software below will be able to connect to it

Here is another solution step by step:
1. Install the software from the CD (that you received with the device), or download it from the service provider (AT&T).

2. Delete or rename the vendor.xml file, here: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader (you're windows file options needs to be set to 'show system files', to see said file...

3. Open Desktop Manager (DM)...

4. Connect the Red Pearl (since am sure that's what you have!)...

5. Doing this will force the pc to see the BlackBerry as new hardware, and thus force it to reload the Operating System (OS)...

6. During the process, select YES to do a backup...

7. The whole process should take about 30-45 minutes...

But, since this has happened so many times, I have to ask myself, is it something you're doing that it causing this? I know the Red Pearls from AT&T have had issues from DAY ONE!
