I have been told that the most effective memory stick is Sandisk, it is more reliable and don't freeze mobile as other brand.
quite a few bugs,
but a very good phone
i find that i'll reset my phone almost atleast once a month....
n jabber servers for merging MSN with Google Talk are very unstable...
camera is very nice for a 1.3MP
takes nice clear pictures outdoors
flash is quite nice as well~
Messaging via email, pin to pin, or messenger is very convenient
I am having glitches with the Pearl.
i) About 10% of the time, a picture of someone other than who is calling me appears on my screen.
ii) I've managed to download video, but the playback is awful. Nothing like the pre-loaded video.
iii) When turning off the unit - you get the "press any key to abort - yet pressing a key does not abort the shutdown.
Any Suggestions? Is there an update available somewhere?
Hi everyone. The only problem with my BB is that I can NOT use bluetooth to send pictures or mp3 but I can receive them. The bluetooth is enabled;the other device is paired; my BB is discoverable; the encryption is disable....is there a fault with it? Help!!! cheers....
can anyone tell me how to find my bluetooth files on the pearl? I just got the phone and started bluetooth my music over and I can never find any of my files. Please help!!!
Thanks for you upgrade advice. Have anybody heared anything about the memory card in the blackberry, any more than 1GB will cause your blackberry to freeze. I am reading that on the blackberry forums...I am waiting on my imate jasjar hoping to replace my Cingular 8125 with it...so far I haved had no problem with my Cingular 8125...but with any new device you have to be prepaid for glitches
April24, there is an update if you have T-Mobile on thier website that corrects a lot of the problems you might be experiencing. www.t-mobile.com/bbupdgrade
You should power down you phone once a week tho. That's the normal for PDA phones.
For the guy who says his BB has been charging but nothing has happened. Check the LID on the back of the phone under the battery (Liquid Indicator Dot) see if it's white. If it isn't then the reason your phone doesn't come on is due to liquid damage. I've seen it happen many times.
Hello every one...I love my bb 8100...only problem I have is it has to be reset sometimes other than that...I love it...blackberry is coming to 21 century...if you have a blackberry...pin me @204CD1AF..anytime..I love to blackberry user
i just bought the pearl however i am wondering if there is a way to keep track of how much data you are using?
ok well i am 16 and i really want a black berry pearl cause its the new one. i am in love with texting so i thought this would be a good phone for that. i like hotmail and msn as well. do you tihnk this is a good phone for me? dose it work fine? i want a good phone.
I just bought a pearl new in the box from a acquaintance and it has been charging for about 14 hours. It still will not power up! All it does is flash in the led notification. The red flash's pattern is once then three times. What is going on? I know it's for the same carrier as I have. Is this normal?
Thanks Ben - Im now confused as Ive just phoned Blackberry and they say its not secure and you can't check your bank balance with the web browser !
tried the samsung blackjack for 2 weeks. ugh, may i never use windows again. i tried parting with my 7130, and i was sad to sell it but this is the first phone since my w810 i have been excited to use. i love it. i can use any phone but at the end, i have the best experience with blackberrys.
And yes it is full web browsing. and it is secure. i got my pin number off my credit cards website!!
About the mp3s, you just need to go to media and open music. then press menu and press 'receive by bluetooth'. Effectivly you are 'opening the gates' to stuff coming in. Yes it is slightly annoying but business customers will appreciate it as a security feature.
about the question about buying a sim free blackberry. you will only get all the features apart from the email side of it, which is the main part of it!!
Hello Every One
