    3 day old pearl not working anymore (hourglass)

    Advertisement



    I just got this Pearl on tuesday. I ordered a miniSD from transcend and after inserting it (properly and snuggly) I replaced the battery and the phone turned itself on and all that is displaying is an hourglass. I waited for 5 minutes of this and then removed the battery and then the miniSD card. After reinserting the battery the phone still does the same thing.

    What have I done? How can I fix it?

    welcome to pinstack.

    you have 2 options. one would be to call your provider and get a new pearl. they should give you no problems. second would be to reinstall the os software. if you need further assistance with that, let me know!

    Welcome to Pinstack!

    1. You can return the phone to the carrier since its only 3 days old.
    2. You can try reinstalling the OS.

    slight update; i waited it out and get this message:

    "uncaught exception: applicationregistry.waitfor (0xac3ae76427d17f19) timeout"

    what is this?

    i also got this message (i believe) when i first tried sync'ing my pearl up with my desktop (it would spin the hourglass for a loooong time too now that i think of it)

    Did you insert the MiniSD or MicroSD card?

    no, to get it working i removed the microSD card as that is what seems to have caused this...

    it seems likely that was the culprit, any ideas?

    you must have the red pearl huh?

    YAY New OS - Rogers 4.2.1.94 - RIM Blackberry Forums - Pinstack.com

    this is the newest OS for the pearl. after you install it you will have no problems. dont worry about it being Rogers...its ok

    x2.

    purchase a microSD. i would recommend ScanDisk. they have been around for along time so they are relatively cheaper

    are you sure you have a microSD and not a mini??

    in you first post you said you had a miniSD, which would be the reason you phone is throwing that error more then likely

    ok ignore my other message... I just realized that it would make no sense since you can't get the phone on.

    it is definitly a microSD, i'd save the link but i'm not "stack 2" or something so it won't let me add a URL

    it's the Transcend TS2GUSD
