    BB Pearl is pissing me off

    Advertisement



    The phone is pretty damned quirky and inconsistent to say the least. I hope there is a software update for it (I haven't looked around much yet).

    1) How do I clear ALL of my call logs? My main screen says (-2) Call Log. Does this mean I have two missed calls? Weird, because I DON'T. Is there a way to clear this?

    2) My status indicator does not blink red when I have a missed call or a message waiting anymore. It used to, and for some reason, it doesn't. Can anyone help me out with this?

    3) If I set the Pearl to flash when ringing, my green status indicator light gets stuck on, and it's VERy bright. Is this another glitch?

    4) Can I do multimedia SMS? I have this free from my provider for 3 months, it would be great to take advantage of it. I see no option to send videos or pictures via SMS.

    Is there anyway I can do a factory reset?

    Hey there,

    Thanks for the tip. I took the battery out for about 5 minutes, and it didn't do anything different. Is there a series of keys I need to press?

    nope just the batt pull.
    you may have to make a trip down to the store you got it at may be a defective phone, this happens from time to time

    Try uprading the OS to the latest Cingulair one (.71) Thats what I'm running and have none of the problems you stated.

    LED can be turned off for cell coverage from the settings- screen/keyboard. Might get rid of the green LED.

    SMS Messages don't have the function to send pictures. MMS do, so thats probably what you get free from your provider. Got to Compose> MMS then add picture.

    No wonder, I don't have an option for MMS. I'm using the Rogers network in Toronto, ON.

    I remember when I was just like the hoster of this thread a couple of weeks ago when I first got the pearl. But now , after reading the forums, updating the OS, upgrading the apps, installing new apps, my pearl can do anything. I literally can just live off the pearl and its capabilities.
