Might have damaged the antennae. Don't know of any DIY option to fix something like that.

Which Pearl do you have? tere are a number of different model numbers. And please update your profile to relect the model number, not the nickname.

With the device on, open the back, remove the battery and the SIM (if you have one). Reinsert the SIM and reinsert the battery. Let it reboot.

Sorry to hear that. Might be a good opportunity to get something newer!
