Default Before I try and exchange my Cingular Pearl

Please Login to Remove!

I wanted to see if there was anyone else with these issues.

1: HTTP Error 413: Request Entity Too Large. I receive this message on about 20% of the web pages I visit.

2: Every web pages I goto has images that don't load.

3: I'm sure I'm not the only one. The battery door is so loose that all I have to do is push very lightly on the door and it releases.

Thanks

Battery door- cut and put a business card on the battery. Yes shouldn't be that way but it works. Have you looked up that error? What is it? Have you adjusted your options? Which browser?

The latch on the bottom of the door works in the opposite direction. I would have to put a Teeny tiny piece of paper under the latc:h to catch against the piece on the door. (i used to use a couple of small post it notes under the door of my 8700 thanks)

I did a search and found no answers I also tried to adjust the settings but nothing seemed to work. I hope my explanation is clear about the door. I am still trying to get used to suretype. (previous 8700c user)

Just got my pearl, haven't had that error and my battery door is fine. I can push really hard and it won't slide without me pressing the release button.

I am on my third pearl. This one is from tmobile mail exchange. The battery door lock is rock solid and it is hard to get the door off when i have to do a hard reset.

My 2nd pearl, the silver piece popped off the first time i opened it. I would get an exchange... or wait till you can get a 2nd or 3rd generation.. so the flaw is fixed...

my 1st and 2nd were canadian... the 3rd is mexican. btw

Heck, I am having trouble getting the battery door to release on my 8100c! BUT, nothing was harder than getting the SIM card out of my 8700c.

All on the Pearl work very well though the keyboard is going to take some time. I will have less misspaled words! <vbg> Still do not like the ball/pearl and when using the device in the dark the pearl needs to be much dimmer, for Gods sake half the power from tha battery go to light up the ball! Wish there were a way to turn it off!

A case for the Pearl would solve the loose door issue. Would also protect it from bumps and bruises.

Wonder what changed?
Does this device have a different country of origin??
When was it manufactured?
Same OS?

Got my pearl on Saturday and the battery door stinks!

It is so loose that even the slightest pressure will push it off. It will not lock into place. I think I am going to return it today.

Of course DM 4.2 switch device wizard is a life saver! Works great for switching back and forth!

I will report back after I return this one.

BTW: I just paid $400 for this phone, so placing some paper on the battery or under the latch is not an option for me.

Just my 2 cents.

I take it back I still gate the same Error message when I access this site.

HTTP Error 413: Request Entity Too Large

Rock & Pop

Test it out and see if you get the same error

If you don't get the error please advise your settings. I've tried everything but maybe I'm missing something.

Note: I am not downloading anything I am just trying to access the page.

Another Note: I use to be able to access this site from my 8700c but I can't test it because I gave it away.

Just took it back and got another one.....
tested it there, and it was fine.

As soon as I got it home...... SAME PROBLEM!

Mods: make this its own thread, or lets start another just about the battery door problem.

Mine can be pushed off with just the slightest pressure.

I also still have the problem with the battery door. What I did was cut a thin strip from an old business card and folded it once then cut off the excess. Then I places it under the clip. Worked like a charm.

Be careful as it may make it to tight.

I do not have any problems with my battery door, nor that the phone freezes up on the web or otherwise. Maybe I'm not an active enough user yet, but since you asked it's A-OK here.

Yes Battery door is an issue. My little sliver button fell out along with a very small spring.

As for the error make sure all your browsers are set to Internet. Advanced / Browers

If you look at the battery door nibs and notches and what have you, you will notice it has got to be the most flimsiest thing ever devised for a $400 cell phone.

Dunno why RIM, who took three years to develop the Pearl, came up with such a flimsy design, but it is what it is so we have to deal with it.

I think it is luck of the draw. Some plastic nibs on the cover come out molded better than others, some have correctly placed springs, some have the correct amount of spring. Others fail in some or all categories.

While it should not have to be a solution, I'd suggest getting the Seidio rubberized case and the Best Skins Ever skin.

Truth be told, a naked Pearl is not going to last long. I'd give it a month or two before something gets damaged for lack of a protective skin and case.

SanFransico, I agree with you on the flimsy design. How hard could it be to make a more sturdy design? I use the OEM holster case and like the feel of a naked device

One concern I have is the trackball and how long that mechanism will last. Any opinions?
