Default Annoying beep every 20 seconds during call

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

I unlocked my BB Pearl to use in Brazil. But that the phone is unlocked, it beeps every 20 seconds or so during phone calls. The beep sounds as if there was an incoming call, but every time a look at the display, there's nothing.

Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Thank you

Not sure about an alert every 20 seconds - that could be a third party messenger app notifying you of a change of pressence on one of the contacts (jsut a wild guess). However if its at every minute then its a minute-minder. Are you roaming out of the USA; since you're carrier listed is TMobile?

Are you using a Brazilian provider SIM on a paygo account? Check with them to see if this is a standard alert with any phone using that SIM making an outbound call.

Yep, I'm using a Brazilian provider SIM card on a prepaid account. I've used other phones on the same type of account and never had this beep going during the calls. In fact, I used the same SIM card in a different phone and it worked fine.

I hear the beep during inbound or outbound calls.

It really sounds like a call timer/reminder. As far as I know there is not functionality to do this on the BB. I would call the carrier and describe what is happening and ask them if this is a function they offer.

I'm stuck, sorry!

This happened to me on an older phone. It beeps to let you know that a minute has passed. There should be an option to turn this off
