    Brand New Blackberry Defective?????

    Advertisement



    I just got my blackbearry 8100 pearl yesterday and was trying to get it to work as a modem on my laptop. I got a email on the phone while I was doing it and looked at it and then all of a sudden the screen turned a bunch of swirly colors and then turned all white. The screen will light up just white and I can shut down and start up. I took it to the tmobile store but they dont know anything so I called and they said send it back for a new one. I'd like to know if its just bricked and its something I can fix myself or if Im going to have to wait for a new one again? Thanks

    sounds like you got a bad pearl
    if you got the quick shipping, the replacement it will come in a day or so

    I had a couple of our pearls do strange things because the Micro SD card was not correctly inserted or had moved in transit. After taking it out rebooting and reinserting all became good again...

    Believe it or not, I'm on my fourth Red Pearl with Cingular.

    1 - software problems - replaced
    2 - software updated, then after a week, the mic died...nobody can hear me talk.
    3 - in the store, never booted up - just got the white screen of death ;-)
    4 - currently in use.

    All in 10 days! I love it, just want something without defects. Hopefully the fourth time is the one for me!
