    Blackberry Pearl 8100- Uncaught Exception: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException

    Advertisement



    Hi Everyone-

    I am having a problem with my new blackberry pearl. I keep getting the error message Uncaught Exception: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException whenever I try and send a text or reply to a text. This is very annoying and Tmobile hasn't really been able to help me out with this. Can someone please try and explain what I need to do. I am not super tech savy so please use the simplest terms possible. I would really appreciate any help you guys can give me.

    Thank you so much,

    Kris

    Have you tried doing a an hard reset ? ( pulling the battery for about 30 secs)
    If that doesn'T work try changing you theme sometime a theme can 'cause BB to crash

    Hope this helps

    I had the exact same issue, tried everything and the only thing that worked was a complete OS wipe and reinstall =\

    Some OS versions are just buggy. In recent memory, the TMO .41 (what came originally released last Sept) and the most recent Italy .102 appear buggy. Hold the shift button and type LGLG to see all the errors (highlighted in bold in the log). Switch to the Cingular .71 OS, its the most stable one I have seen.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ok guys... Go to your options then go to sms text... Then scroll down till you see an option that says number of previous items. You have to change that number to different one it does not matter what number you change it to. Then when you change it save your changes. Then it should work. Also if you reboot your blackberry by removing the batt your are gonna start having the same problem what you have to do is do what you did before and its gonna work...

    Re: Blackberry Pearl 8100- Uncaught Exception: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException

    Hi,
    I have received my BB used, so I went ahead and immediately did wipe, followed by JL_Cmder wipe and clean install of the Latest T-Mobile OS from their website.

    The error is still there. I thought it was related to not having a data plan, but it seems like it has nothing to do.. The "previous sms" setting didn't work. Is there any other way of getting rid of this error, because I cannot get into General Settings of the browser, and Browse Icon is not even in my Icon Grid.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, in the link you provided it states "when attempting to send text messages" althought that's not the case with mine.. In fact, Sending SMSs is just fine.
    This only shows up when I try to go to General Settings of Browser.

    If your browser icon is not on the home screen i am asuming you are going into options then advanced options is that correct? If you do not have a data plan what are we trying to accomplish?

    Re: Blackberry Pearl 8100- Uncaught Exception: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException

    Eddie, No.
    When I go to Options, Advanced Options:
    All I see is:
    Browser
    Default browser configuration:

    that's all, rest is blank.

    The way I reach the Browser is using "Switch Application" from the Icon Grid. In that little menu Browser appears, but not on the Icon Grid.

    I am just concerned that when I add the Data Plan with T-Mobile, this will cause problems browsing using the default browser. This is the reason I am holding the data plan...

    Ok, do we know if the icon is just hidden? get to you main screen and hit menu twice or hold alt key and press menu then select show all. again with not having a data plan what are we trying to do?

    sorry getting a little cross posting here. If you do not have the data plan this is why there is not a default browser. when they add the data plan it send service book setting to the phone to activate the browser. i would follow resolution 1 in the rim article, then add the data plan on the acct.
