    Thumbs down Devil Phone!!!

    I OFFICALLY HATE My Pearl!!!
    Its messing up DAILY, and has been a problem from day one.
    I've had to reinstall the thing so many times, and now its deleting my messages before I even get a chance to see them, and my call log.
    And now I'm trying to reinstall it, and I can't get it to happen again.

    I wouldn't wish this phone upon my worst enemy. I've seen so many people say that I need to make more space so it won't delete my call log and messages, but I've deleted EVERYTHING in order for that to happen and its still messing up!

    PLEASE, PLEASE HELP ME LOVE MY PHONE AGAIN!

    Whatever it takes for my browsers to come back. I tried fixing all of this, and it took my browsers off and all sorts of mess. All of this is just about to bring me to tears.

    ps. Now the abc thing is stuck in the top right corner of my screen. Great. :]

    People shouldn't issue phones that make customers work on it. Its not fair, these phones should come with a warning.

    It's not just a phone, you are working with a PDA now.

    What is a "new att os"?
    I'm not savvy with all of this.
    And I guess so, but when people send me texts, its like they flash on the screen and then automatically delete. My call log is GONE, also.

    Yeah. Well I'm about to call customer service and give a little Indian man a piece of my mind. I'm far too busy of a person to be up at two o'clock in the morning, trying to get my telephone to work.

    Re: Devil Phone!!!

    Try installing this OS on your PC first http://members.a1.net/updateservice/bb/ Then open Desktop Manager and BACK UP YOUR PHONE.

    Look for Firmware für BlackBerry 8100 (Pearl) - Version 4.2.1.101
    online seit 03-07-2007 - Download (75 MB | exe) and install that.

    Go to Start>Search. Type in vendor.xml and click Search. Delete it once your PC finds it. Connect your BB to your PC and open Desktop Manager. It should recognize it as an upgrade if you deleted the vendor.xml file. Select Do Not Backup (or whatever it says). Let it run its course. Once the Pearl turns on and the splash screen turns on (not sure if you have T-Mobile or Cingular), then you can go to Desktop Manager>Application Loader>Backup and Restore>Restore. Restore the backup you made while installing the new OS. Let phone reboot. See what happens after it reboots.

    I'm so sorry that I'm being so ... n00b about all of this. But honestly, I've actually cried a few times out of frustration over this.
    I'm ready for my phone to be back to its normal self.
    I'm downloading all of this stuff right now, I'll post with the results.

    Thank you, Everyone.
