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).
