    Constant Dropped Calls

    Advertisement



    Hey,
    I own a Pearl 8100 and Every time I place/receive a call, about :30 to 1:00 into the call, the other person will just cut out, and they can't hear me, I can't hear them, and we'll stay "Connected" until one of us realizes that we can't hear each other anymore.
    I realize it's probably an unfixable problem, but I forgot to get insurance on my berry so I'm not too sure what I could do besides buy another.
    If you have anything that could help me, please let me know.
    Thank you for providing a service like this and I hope to hear from you,
    del

    Re: Constant Dropped Calls

    What Software Version is you BB on, And what Carrier?
    I Am with T-mobile and have tried all the Softwares for the Pearl out there. and Cingulars 4.2.0.73 seems to have the least call issues.

    T-Mobile; v4.2.1.94, if you could point me to the best software that'd be awesome.
    Thanks

    Re: Constant Dropped Calls

    I was just looking into that. it looks like once they post an new software to the site they remove the old software. And I do not have a Site that I can post the software to. I have most of them Dled.

    I would need some place that can hold 70mb, it is huge. and FTPing may be problematic. I do not have Broadband I live in the country. I work for a Cell provider so have the files DLed is one thing uploading is yet another.

    Try this link. It should take you to a stack with links to all BB OS's

    I did well with tmo 0.64, ATT 0.73 and now ATT 1.96
    The Rogers OS gave me all the dropped calls.

    If this doesn't fix it, call TMo for a warranty exchange. Your Pearl shouldn't do that.

    Re: Constant Dropped Calls

    As a further Note to this. On Cingulars newest version v4.2.1.96 seems to lose call on the freeway more then any where else.

    We tested several Pearls here on the same software at the same time and All had the same type of call issues on AT&T [formerly Cingular] 4.2.1.96, T-Mobile USA 4.2.0.64, Rogers Wireless, Inc. Applications: 4.2.1.94, Telecom Italia Mobile [TIM Italy] 4.2.1.66, THe best so far to our experance here is AT&T [formerly Cingular] 4.2.0.73. Now we are not saying we had the same issues accross all software. But we were testing 3 to 4 Pearls on the same software at the same time and getting the same results accross the test.

    Did you do a similar test with the 8800? My GF is having that problem...
    Thanks!
