    After 5 mins phone shuts off and indicator light blinks red

    Advertisement



    Sorry for the bombardment of noobie like questions.. but it seems as though this phone is just not working out for me (Darwin??? maybe I am just too stooopid to own this thing).

    After the phone indicator blinks red... the phone will not turn on no matter what I press... is this the phone locking itself and I just don't know what key to press?

    Did you load aything that not supported? May need to reload the OS. Have you tried popping the battery out and re-seat it?

    So the Pearl is on, but you can't activate the phone?

    As Treo700 suggested, you should should try reloading the OS. This resets everything back to its factory condition just like when you just picked your Pearl up at the store. If you'd made any minor modifications or changes after the purchase, this might help...

    I think Jive just got the Pearl and was taking it off the charger after charging it for the recommended 24 hours...right Jive?

    I would bring it back to the store and show them what is going on. Probably needs to be replaced.
