I'm having the same problem with my pearl. Apparently a lot of the people who own a blackberry have this problem, and RIM still hasn't issued a solid solution? I already tried to run diagnostics on it to see what the problem was that it kept turning the radio off but that doesn't work either. Is there another way to permanently turn the radio back on?

Radio keeps shutting off

When there is no signal around ur blackberry will shut off the radio instead of constantly searching for one which really kills battery power just make sure you arent in a real signal dead area and you should be fine to turn it back on just go to manage connections and click it back on,if this is not the problem then there might be some problem with ur phone.

Antenna automatic shut off problems for blackberry pearl

I had this problem a few times, but only when I let the battery drop so low that the connection turned itself off to save what little life the battery had. Once that happens I just had to wait for the battery to charge back up so the connection could reestablish itself. If this is the case, just plug it in and give it time.

Blackberry Pearl won't stay connected to radio

If it was spotty reception, I'd suggest the antenna may have been damaged when dropped. They do get damaged.
But systemic, timed 16 second bursts?
In Settings, when is your phone configured to 'go to sleep'? After how long a period of inactivity?
It may not be considering the radio signal is be sufficient activity to justify keeping it 'awake'.

I've somehow disabled the wireless connection to my blackberry mobile phone! I cannot seem to work out how to switch it back on.I've looked through the user guide no luck-please can you help?


You can find all your network connections switches on the menu under manage connections. there you can turn on the wirelless network connection. The icon for the manage connections should be an antena with radio waves arround it
