It's a sad day...
Well it's been fun being apart of the BB community..I didn't want it to end but the T-Mobile bill came for my phone (Pearl) and I couldn't sell my W810 so I had to sell the Pearl on ebay...'tear' Didn't want to do it but I had is tight....

How do you reset this little guy to the factory settings so I can mail it out?

Why not the w810i on ebay?

BCollins521 10-17-2006 10:37 PM

I had it on ebay and no one wanted to buy it....I guess I was asking too much for the thing..I had it for 250

Damn that sucks... for the rest its Options \ Security \ General Settngs \ "menu button" and Wipe Handheld. Yea also pop your sim out, either before or after.

That should do it.

Go to Options, Security Options, General Settings
Click the scroll wheel and select Wipe Handheld

I was thinking of selling the Pearl for some profit and then buying another Pearl :)

Try calling t-moble for an unlock code. You may have better luck selling it unlocked.

BCollins521 10-18-2006 06:52 AM

I sold mine unlocked on ebay for 340

27 months should be plenty lol so I just call them up on 611?

BCollins521 10-18-2006 10:44 AM

Yea just tell them your going overseas and need it unlocked and you'll get the unlock code anywhere between 4-24 hours

Well hopefully we'll see you hear again in the future. :D

BCollins521 10-19-2006 09:47 AM

I hope so..I will definatly be buying another one if I can get the money...

I say try again. I just went to Ebay and see what everyone is bidding on for W810 and it seems everyone is bidding on it for at least $200 and up.

Usually, if someone set the start price to high, people tend to avoid bidding on it so maybe you can start your bid at $100 and (if you have enough feedbacks) set the reserve price for $200.

Also it helps if you have everything like the house charger, earphones, etc.

If you only selling the phone, people will think it was stolen or found and they will not bid on it.

It also helps if the phone is in excellent condition. (That's why I have Shield Zone and skin case for my phone.)

If you still want to sell your 8100 than I hope things will get better for you and I hope to see you back here again soon.

Start it at a penny with a 3 day auction....

phungy 10-19-2006 10:47 AM

^^that's what I try to do. That way I won't have to pay as much for the insertion fee.
