    BB8100 Pearl meltdown

    Advertisement



    Yesterday, I downloaded what I thought was the plasmic(?) reader for the 8100. Looking back I must assume it was not. My pearl did a complete meltdown. I took it to the Tmobile store today and after a couple of hours, they are sending me a new one. Has anyone had this happen? Is there a cure? I would love to keep the one I have. Any help out there?

    Thanks!!

    Mitch

    What do you mean by meltdown? Spinning hour glass?

    No, the only screen it would show was a list of apps and none of them worked...We did a clean sweep of the memory; everything the TMBB specialist could think of. It will not even allow me to link w/ my desktop for syn or restore.

    kaidar, Welcome to PinStack.

    You should be able to use Desktop Manager to do a Clean Install of the Pearl OS, which I think is available for download. This should bring you 8100 back to life. If it doesn't try using the wipe option of JL_Cmder, then reload your OS, using the procedure in this thread, How To: ReInstall OS When Computer Won't recognize The Device Is Connected

    Hope this Helps.

    Re: BB8100 Pearl meltdown

    thanks Rcbjr for this link...the same happened to my pearl over the weekend. My battery drained unusually fast on friday, it gave out and when I finally got home to charge, I got the same screen. A list of my apps, but none of them worked, they all were errors. I spent some considerable time with t-mobile's blackberry's tech, and since I was still in my 14 day grace period, they told me to go back to the store and get a new one. Now that Im passed the grace period, Im scared that this will happen again....

    Tmo has BB Specialists? Hah...That's interesting...Every time I called Tmobile I got some person who had NO idea what I was talking about, and usually I figured out the problem before they did. Then the day that I got ahold of Shawn and this forum, there has been no need to call Tmobile support anymore.

    Hey~

    Can you be a bit more specific?

    What exactly are the problems you are encountering while trying to download music and videos with your 8100?
