I have a Pearl 8100 I stopped using because the charging port got damaged and there was no way to charge it anymore. Other than that, the phone is in perfect working order. I saw somewhere that the port can be changed. How easy is it to do so? Any videos out there on how its done? I probably wont do it myself anyway, but very curious to know.
Basically, i found a BlackBerry Pearl 8100 O2 on the street yesterday. I know this might upset some people, but im going to keep it. Because i need a new phone! Now how should i go on about this? will it work with just inserting my SIM ?
Can anyone tell me if the Blackberry Desktop 6.0 properly supports synchronization between Outlook 2010 32-bit and a Pearl 8100 with device software v188.8.131.52 (Platform 184.108.40.206)?I first did a one-way sync from Outlook to my device (replacing all device data). That worked fine. However, using Calendar as an example, the next sync tried to delete all calendar entries from some point in 2009 and prior. It also identified changes to entries that were not changed at all!Sync'ing Task, Memos and Contacts yielded the same problem where items were identified as being changed when they were not.When trying different sequences of synchronization including doing a reset on my Pearl before resync'ing, I get different and inconsistent results.The Blackberry site says I have the latest version of device software, so...
I just got my hands on an old Blackberry 8100 (OS220.127.116.11)Sadly, I'm almost certain that this phone won't be able to run 5, but while I was in high school this was my favorite phone and I recently just received one..for free. The phone's trackball doesnt work(clicking the trackball scrolls up), and the volume up doesn't work either. I'm not really going to use the phone as cellular device, but I would rather just have it on my desk as a souvenir...in working condition as a backup.So I've decided to buy a new housing for it, probably fixing the trackball problem, and then this is where I'm not sure. Would the new housing fix the volume bar problem also? Or would I have to actual replace parts on the phone?
Hi all, I'm new here and just got the pearl 8110. Maybe a very stupid question, but on my main screen I have an icon that tells me that I have a new message (sms). But I have no idea how to open it. If I go in the menu i see nothing like 'inbox or messages', really strange. Can anyone explain it to me pls?
I read on one of the help things that I can add German as an Input language for my Pearl 8130 using the application loader, but I can't figure out how to do that in Desktop Manager. I'm using Windows Vista.I type text messages and emails in different languages, but the only three of them that came with the phone were English, French, and Spanish. It rejects the spelling of my German words in emails and facebook posts, etc. I don't want to have to add every German word I know manually.I also would like to be able to use the SureType feature in German, but I can't figure out how to add it.
How do I upgrade my pearl 8100 to os5 so that I can install the whatsapp application. I would to commuincate with other smartphone but when I get the link it is telling me that my os 4.5 is old and I need to get the lastest 4.6 and above to use that feature.
My Blackberry 8100 won't download mms. It will receive it but won't come through completely. I thought it was a signal problem but even with full bars it won't work. I was wondering if there's any way to fix this and also I have the latest software. Ever since I updated it it will not download mms.
I've recently acquired a blackberry pearl and I'm wondering if there is a way/application to keep the LED light blinking red until I've read the SMS or looked at the missed phone call (instead of timing out after 15 min). I know there is an application like buzzme, however I really don't need all those customizations and was wondering if anyone knew of a free application to just keep the light red until the SMS has been read.
I have a bought a new Blackberry Pearl Flip 8220 model recently from a retailer. I have been facing a strange problem for the past two days. Whenever, I try to enable the blue tooth. The phone's Bluetooth does not get enabled. Please help in this regard as this is very annoying because I sync my Outlook and mobile using Bluetooth.
first things first -- a computer whiz I am not!!! I apologize if I come across as a complete **bleep** when it comes to computer jargon but I'm still in the "intermediate at best" phase of my computer knowledge. I have a Blackberry Pearl 8230 with a 4G data card that I can't use, because I cannot connect my blackberry to the computer! It's plugged in with the USB cable, and the device charges, but the Desktop software never recognizes the device. It doesn't say "a new device has been added", and the Desktop software just says "Please connect your device". My husband has a blackberry that seems to connect no problem. I wondered if there were issues connecting 2 devices to the same computer, so I connected my blackberry to my laptop and still no dice.I've taken my BlackBerry to the Telus store, and they have no issues with connections.
They upgraded the software on the BlackBerry for me but it still refuses to connect to the computer.What am I doing wrong? This is a fresh computer with a brand new download of Desktop software (just downloaded the other day).Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm getting rather annoyed at this point.
I got this phone yesturday, and when I did the set up, when it got to the e-mail part the only option I got was "I want to use a work email account with a BlackBerry Enterprise server" or "I want to skip e-mail setup"
I do not have a work e-mail account, and from what I've seen in order to get facebook or any other applications, I am going to need my e-mail to connect to the phone?
After a year and a half of working just fine, my Blackberry 8110 will not connect to my PC via USB. I am using Windows XP Pro ver. 2002 SR 3 and Desktop manager Ver 18.104.22.168. The phone does not appear in Windows device manager when connected, desktop mgr reports no connection and cannot detect the device when prompted. After a hard reset the charging icon appears on the phone momentarily when first plugged into the PC then disappears and will not reappear without another reset. I can charge the unit with an AC charger until I plug it into the PC. After that it is unresponsive to the charger until reset. The phone is fully charged. I read a thread about fiddling with the connection at the phone end of the USB cable. I was able to get an intermittent connection using this technique (or at least the charging icon appeared intermittently), but now that does not seem to make any difference. The AC charger connection is completely solid when I move the plug around. I have removed and reinstalled BDM, no change.Several weeks ago I installed a USB driver for an M audio midi interface and had a great deal of difficulty getting that device to work. I don;t recall whether I have synced the phone since then. I am wondering if that created some sort of conflict or if it somehow corrupted the driver. Other obvious causes are the USB port on the phone or problem with the phone OS. I have tried both USB ports on laptop and both immediately recognize a thumb drive. I don't know how to update/reinstall the RIM driver since the phone other than remove and reinstall BDM which I have done. I am reluctant to wipe the phone without some confidence it will resync. Also thought about switching to bluetooth sync but would rather not buy gear if the phone is KO'd.
I really new help with my blackberry perl 8100 series!! My phone is through cingular and my serves is through t-mobile. So I am all new to this whole adding and updating thing ect...yes this is also my first time owning a blck berry phone!
I have a bb pearl 8110 w/gps support. when i connect the BB to my computer, on the BBDS, appear the GPS app installed, but there's no icon on the menu. info: BB Pearl 8110, OS 22.214.171.124 original from AT&T, but is unlocked
I've got a three year old Pearl 8100. I've downloaded just one app-google maps. All of my photos are on my micro sd card. There are a lot of emails and text messages on the phone but the hourglass is constanting runningm making most input slow to respond. It runs through a full battery charge in 5-6 hours. I've never updated the operating system and dont see where I can do that. I wiped the phone clean two weeks ago, but everything still seemed to be on it or returned like texts and emails. It worked fine for a few days before the hourglass returned.
my Bb 8100 is working good and I can use internet, mails, pin.The problem is that I can`t download any application or program such facebook, app world, msn.Any time I wanted to download something any of the following notes appeared (similar to this since I originally has the phone with spanish language)
-The policy of TI doesn`t allow third persons downloads (la politica de TI no permite descargas de terceros)
-This phone doesn`t admit facebook (este dispositivo no admite facebook)
I`ve been suggested that the problem could be consequence of a previous block that any company has done. This phone belonged to a company that had done some blocks on applications. I`d need to know what I can do to solve this problem but a "step by step" indication as I am not familiar with Blackberry really.
My service provider is T-Mobile, but I had no problem with this on my previous phone.Under service book, I have MMS Config, but I have nothing under Host Routing Table. I have tried clicking on "Register Now", but then it says "Registration Message Sent"... Where is it sending this message?My plan has the capability of sending and receiving MMS, and I have no data plan. I am also not on any kind of enterprise server.
my pearl 8100 every time i plug it into my computer it will connect then couple seconds later it will disconect and reconnect and disconect again over and over again and i don't kno why and it takes forever to charge sometime when i plug it in the charge sihn will come up but it doesn't charge..
