    dead air calls

    Advertisement



    ok i know the pearl has that 3 second delay on incoming calls. not all the time but its pretty frequent. i went ahead and upgraded to the TMO Iitaly os from the TIM US version and now i dont get that. which made me very happy. i still get blank mms messages every now and then.
    but now ive been getting blank/dead air calls.
    like the call comes in and i answer and i cant hear anything. they cant hear me either. i call them back or make a call and i still cant hear anything. the only way that i have found out to fix this is to do the battery pull. after that, then it works, until it happens again.
    does anybody else experience this? or know how to fix this? thanks.

    i have the white pearl 8100 with tmo italy os 4.2.1.66 with 36 mb free space.
    thanks.

    There's a lot of bugs with 1.66 TIM OS. I hear that this is a problem every once in a while with this OS.

    The blank mms is with all versions of the OS.

    Me and my girlfriend had the same problems after upgrading to the TMO Italy OS. We both have the white Pearl from TMO. The call problems were frequent enough that we had to load another os. Same with you, we had to do a battery pull every time. We are now running OS version 4.2.0.73.

    Yea Guys, I wouldn't deal with the TIM 1.66 Itally OS, unless you're really really good at trouble shooting. The everyday user should just stick with .73 from Cingular/AT&T.

    Hopefully there should be a new OS coming out soon with the release of the Curve.
    *has fingers crossed*

    Should I downgrade to the Cingular os or the original t mobile one. I'm a t mobile subscriber.
    Any benefits of using the Cingular os compared to the tmobile one?

    TMO .64 OS has a known memory leak. I would use Cingulars OS it has a few bug fixes too.
