Default Problems With Pearl

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, I bought the Blackberry Pearl about a month ago.

Well 4 Weeks with no Problems.

Now i have quite a few.

Mabe they are easy fixes???


1) Missed Calls arent Being Recorded in my Phone Log

2) For some Reason i cant recieve text? i can send it out, but when people send it back to me i never get the message anymore.

3) Its going alot slower, the loading times are taking longer.


Could it be because i have too much memory stored? is that a possiblity? i do have quite a few ringtones.

As far as memory goes, I would buy a 1 or 2 gig micro card.
Also, I know this sounds stupid, but make sure your date on the phone is right. When I got my pearl, it said July 07. So everytime I got a missed call or text message, the phone would automatically erase it. Apparently I had the phone set to erase all messages after a certain date. After I changed the date back to normal, all my messages came through...

Just a thought.

the date is just fine, i dont know man, but im going tommorow to get a 2G Memory Card, its kinda BS got i cant get anymore ringtones either. I really think that Memory Just MAY be the issue.

But then again when i make calls it logs,
And when i send Text it logs.
Just when i recieve....FKIN Weird. I checked the options and i have it set to all calls(incomming and outgoing)

Darnit!

For the txt issue, I strongly recommend you call customer service and have them patch that over. My sister and I had that same problem when we upgraded our cell phones, and it wasn't just a blackberry issue. But after calling, all works great now and we can mms each other stupid cat pictures just fine.

Adorableone,
You take stupid pictures of cats too. I thought I was the only one...lol

P.S. Seriously though, take the phone back to your carrier and explain. Would hate to pay for something I cant use. If all else fails, reinstall the OS, or try another OS.

Search for memory leak and see if the tips help you fix it.

Do you like stuffonmycat.com? that was the first site I bookedmarked on my opera browser (for some reason I can't access SOMC on the BB browser) .


When using. 73 , the DM would always delete the API library, and there was not an option to uncheck it . It happend regardless of re-installing .73 and upgrading to DM sp1. I'm glad I'm not with verizon anymore, so I'm hoping the exchange process won't be too brutal. I'm just worried about getting a refurb

This might be repetitive, so consider it a summary!
  1. From the Phone screen (click the Green Call button), click the Menu button (to the left of the trackball) and select Options --> Call Logging and select All Calls.

  2. As noted above, this is a matter of getting the service turned on through your carrier.

  3. Back off your email retention. From Messages, click the Menu button and select Options --> General Options, and set Keep Messages to 30 or 60 days.
