My Blackberry Pearl 8100 is a TMobile Unlocked for ATT, Fido, ect. I just got it today and already the backlight for the scroller ball is orange and then faded out completely and then there is message at the top that says "Data Connection Refused." Can anyone tell me what this means? Anything will help me!!!

Welcome to the forums starlite! I an assuming your pearl is used. The trackball is probably very dirty. It is causing the light to appear that awful color. If you place you thumb over the LED does it light up (Color wont change) if it does there is nothing wrong other than you need a new trackball which can be purchase for less that 10 dollars. The data connection refused is normal and will be there unless you purchase a Blackberry Data Plan. If you are not going to purchase one you can try turning data services off and it might not appear. Menu>Options>Mobile Network>Data Service = (OFF).

Good luck!

Oh fun stuff! Thank you for the welcome! It actually doesn't come on at all! It was for a while and I just assumed it was dirty. I'm taking it too ATT tommorow to have it looked at and hopefully get whatever it is fixed. Ah! Thank you. Good too kno! What was weird was that the message went away for a while and then came back. Weird or no? Thank you so much btw!!!

Wirelessly posted (life goes on! yes it is tough)

As it is a TMO phone ATT won't do much!
