I need some help, I just got a cingular blackberry pearl 8100 and I am having a strange issue with it.
When I plug it in, the led will flash yellow for about 15 min and then stay on a solid green.
If i hold down the power button, nothing happens, and the screen stays unlit, but if i press the voice command button, a voice will ask me to say a command.
If i take out the battery and put it back in, the LED will flash red once for a short moment.
I am using an OEM blackberry battery, and i got the pearl from ebay from a user who said that it was in perfect working condition, and it looks to be in good condition. I am contacting him to see what he says about it, but in the mean time, i was wondering what anyone thought about this, and what all the LED's mean? is my phone just not getting charged? I am using an old OEM moto V3 charger, and i have also tried charging through the USB using balckberry desktop software.
ok, i was just able to find a friend who had cingular and i popped in the sim and called it, and the phone rang. I was unable to accept the call by pressing the green button, it would just restart the ringer...is my phone bricked or is there some sort of reset button that I can press, or can i plug it into the USB and flash it with a new firmware and software?
