I'm having trouble with a Pearl I bought. When turning on the radio, the BB will not connect to any network. It says "Initilization Failed". I did a search of the entire forum for this error and came up with a thread from a person who had this same error on a 7230. The answer he was given was to reconnect to BES and this failure message will go away. I tried removing the IT policy since I do not use BES but it didn't solve the problem. Anyone know if connecting to BES is absolutely necessary to fix this? Thanks.
Connecting to a BES is NOT required for the network. You could try the old 'remove/reinsert' battery to perform a hard reboot, or to try registering the device to the network (Options / Advanced Options / Host Routing Table - click menu and click Register Now).
If all else fails, it might help to reload the OS. You can follow these instructions for that:
