    DONT DO battery pulls to reset phone!

    I have read many posts of people complaining about the the battery cover breaking on the Pearl.
    Also about how it is very weak and flimsy. Well while I agree that it is a lil flimsy, it also is very hard to take off. I think this is ACTUALLY a mark of good quality. I figured out a way to solve this issue.

    1. Take it off only one time, and thats when you put in a micro sd card.

    2. Download "Soft Reset". Using that program does the same thing, and it leaves ALL of your programs intact.

    3. Put a rubber "skin" on your phone

    By doing this You will never have to worry about the battery cover...unless you drop your phone too much.

    MKhora... I agree SoftReset is a great app to have...

    However there are times I still find myself pulling the battery manually because I have the hour glass of doom that lasts just too long for my patience...

    Lucky for me my back cover remains in great shape... handle your BB with love and care... and you shouldnt have a problem... even with the trusty good old manual battery pull.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i agree the battery cover is weak and flimsy. But if you know how to properly take the cover and reinsert it it won't break. I do battery pulls at least once every 2 days on my pearl and don't have any problems

    Wow, every 2 days? Is that because of issues with your Pearl or just for the heck of it? :-)

    I only have to do a battery pull because of an issue about once or twice a month on my 8703.

    I don't know why I do it. No problems or anything... just figured I wouldn't have any problems if I did it on a regular basis.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~that is a great app to have. agreed! But if you have no option but the batt pull then do so! Again properly opening the batt cover is definitely a must if resorting to batt pull!

    I'll have to disagree, my first 2 weeks maybe I found it challenging but now it comes on and off like nothing and I dont even notice the cover being flimsy. I guess you just need practice, like everything else.

    Are you serious? This isn't MS Windows we're talking about. I had an 8703 for a year, maybe pulled the battery 5 times. Have had my 8830 for a few months, pulled the battery once.

    As a long time Windows user it seems nautural to reboot every once and awhile. See these crazy habits that MS has instilled in us!

    Somehow softreset would not run properly on my pearl. I agree with some people here about the latch weakness. But if you know how to do it properly, you're going to break it off. Actually the pearl's battery door its the easiest to take off from the phones I have had and opened. Some of them I'm not even able to take them off.
    I've had my pearl for a year and its almost like new. No problems at all with the hardware.

    if you push the button on the bottom the back cover removes pretty easily and isn't a big problem. it's hard to take off if you just yank on it.

    I was told by a service rep that a battery pull isn't neccesary. He told me
    to try turning it on and off a few times and to turn it back on.

    every time you install a program do a Soft Reset
