My month old Blackberry Pearl just started to turn on and off with a white screen and the loading symbol in the middle. Also the red light turns on for a few seconds, then turns off. It was just sitting on my desk all day!
My problem apparently was with the new OS and the memory card (micros SD). Make sure you download the latest OS for your phone. Then you have to format the card. Copy the info from your memory card onto your computer, then delete that info from your memory card. This should fix the on/off cycling of the phone.

Hi it is because the BlackBerry Pearl 8100 smartphone cannot initialize the BlackBerry Device Software or there is a corrupt operating system file. To resolve this issue, reload the BlackBerry Device Software on the BlackBerry Pearl 8100 smartphone.
To perform an installation of the BlackBerry Device Software using BlackBerry Desktop Manager version 4.5 to 5.0, perform the following steps: 1) Open BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
2) Connect the BlackBerry smartphone to the computer and open the BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
3) Double-click Application Loader.
4) Click Start under Update Software to start the installation process.
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.
I've had the same problem, particularly after upgrading the OS. I've been able to keep it reboot free for 24 hours after resending the service books from the bberry portal (and I'm even using it unlocked from T-Mobile on AT&T).
The problem when a phone gets wet doesnt start after drying. It starts day/weeks later when the phone starts to corrode. If you take it apart check the main board and see if it has any white residue on it.
You can try to clean this off with alcohol but chances are it's going to be a no go.
