Blackberry pearl is the worst mistake in cellphone industry, mine is 8 months old and it gives me a lot of trouble specially with the msn messenger and the web browser is the worst of all. i am getting a samsung behold or eternity , because i hate iphone´s keyboard
This phone is royal crap. Didnt even have the phone for a year and the phone just shut the hell down. Its not worth your money
i love my blackberry... like i have a mini-laptop. great call quality. kind of difficult menu. the only down side is that, does not ring loud enough.
you people must be retarded then and not know how to use it, ive never any any issues with it, and putting music, photo's and what not from my pc on to it is soo easy, how could you not know how to do that, install the software and get a micro sd card

blondnsassi, 30 Nov 2008Is there an album where you can get the pictures you take, send in message then delete? I have... moreSend messages to shortcode 222. These will appear online in your tmobilepictures.com albums.
you can setup and manage this online.
I have a Blackberry and i had the same problem. My test messages and call logs were getting deleted. Then I finally (after months of this happening) decided to try and find if anybody had this problem online. Turns out alot of people do. But I also found out why this happens and I found a way to solve the problem. It does not matter how big your sd memory card is. Because your phone uses it's own memory for running things. ANY time you are using a program exit out correctly!!!!! If you don't you leave that program running causing the Blackberry to use too much memory and it then deletes unecessary stuff like text messages and call logs. The correct thing to do its to delete any unwanted apps. BUT the most important thing is exiting out of programs. here's how you do it. when trying to leave a program press the menu button (button to the left of the tracking ball) and scroll down until you see "close" click on it and exit. That's it if you do this you won't make your blackberry overwork it's memory. very simple solution no need to cry about it. Try it and good luck
Mine works great for me, plus I'm a computer geek so that helps out too
The blackberry pearl has so many problems that right when I fix one another one pops up but sometimes they are really worth it. If your having a lot of problems with it get it checked out or try taking the battery out for a minute. And if you think blackberries are expensive they dont have to be. Dont get it from a store that specializes with technology and phones cuz there its like $100 but I got mine for $30 at Sam's Club.
Anonymous, 01 Dec 2008My pearl does the same thing. Before I can even read a text it deletes it and most of the time... moreexpensive phone first , no free assistance from blackberry for trouble shooting second, and then an update have to be download for new features.
doesn't take video and really limited in memory which entails several bugs, slow O.S
a disappointed user
