Default 8100 setting of store security detectors

Please Login to Remove!

I have been having a problem with my Pearl for about 2 months now. In certain stores my Pearl sets off the stores security detectors by there doors. Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a way to fix it?

We've had this disscussion before. Doubtful that it's your phone.

I am positive it is my phone. I have made sure. It is the only thing I will have on me and the alarm will go off. Then I will walk through them with nothing at all and it won't go off. RIM needs to look into this problem. Change the frequency or something. I am tired of getting stopped at the door of stores.

RIM can't change the frequency. Those are the frequencies that all the carriers use. It's more likely the shoes you're wearing!

This come sup once in a blue moon. It isn't the BlackBerry. I think (OK, I am sure) that many more people would be reporting this.

Ok so by nothing at all you mean you're naked? Then you don't mean nothing at all. It could be something as simple as an access card from your employer. Those are more commonly the issue with those systems.

I have nothing in my pockets at all. I am wearing a shirt, pants, and shoes. It cannot be anything in my wallet. I don't carry my work badge with me anyways. Every thought that maybe there are a few blackberrys that have something wrong that cause this since it has been said before?

Wow I didn't mean to upset you so.... yes I suppose you have the one 8100 in a Million that can be tied to this issue. Though it's ALWAYS turned out to be something else. Sunspots? Pacemaker?

Honestly I don't mean to make fun. In fact sometimes I half expect to set them off with all the gadgets I carry.

Bounce, it is just unlikely. Entirely possible? But very unlikely. Believe me, these guys have seen most everything there is about a BB. The others who have claimed it happened, not hard information ever came to fruition in those issues either.
