i've noticed alot of the solutions to problems involve battery pulls. is this common for everyone to do this when they first encounter a problem? is this just accepted by everyone that this is just the way for blackberrys or is it only phones that have real problems that have to do this everyonce in a while? i didn't know if everyone who owned a blackberry does then when they have issues just b/c it's what your supposed to do? if you continually do it alot does this mean your bb is defective or just something you need to live with?
sorry for the noobness i maybe young in age but i'm stuck in the older times when it comes to technology.
A battery pull is the first thing to try in a problem, (a problem which may never occur since) because you are removing the power, resetting the system.
If you have to do a battery pull more than once a day everyday, then theres problem.
"That's it then. Cancel the kitchen scraps for lepers and orphans, no more merciful beheadings... and call off Christmas."
Its a service practice that dates back to the late 1700's when a wise man first uttered the words 'Thou shalt turn it off, then shalt turn it on again'
I hate to say it, but as with all things in technology, if theres a problem turning it off and on sorts out most problems!
Think of it this way, if you are having weird problems with a mac or PC, whats the first thing you do? Reboot! Since doing a softboot on a BB doesnt clear out the memory fully a battery pull is the best way of clearing out the RAM.
Like most gadgets like cellphones, PDAs, PCs, Macs, etc.. A good reboot does wonders.. I was working at tech support for Macs and Windows before, and 75% of computer problems can be fixed with a power cycle reboot..
well i've owned my blackberry flip pearl only for about 5 days and i've had to do this twice already. yeasterday when a pic message wasn't sending. everything else functioned but it was sending for like 5 mins. maybe i was to quick for that one. and then today when i woke up and my phone was off and wouldn't turn on until i pulled the battery and then turned it back on. do you think i may be in line for a long list of issues if this stuff is starting this early?
yeah so i'm discovering but i haven't downloaded anything. or updated its as stock as it come from the store with lasted software? so i don't think i should be having any memory issues yet should i?
