    Johnny -- the app is online. www.geek-and-proud.net (I think) or maybe without hyphens. Made by the same developer for the free version of the color pearl and autolock

    I have to do battery pulls a week, at a minimum. And I'm on my 3rd pearl, so its not just a 'this one' thing, but maybe i'm a over-user??? =)

    Re: DONT DO battery pulls to reset phone!

    I do use the soft reset when I find I am not getting any mail. I have 4 accounts and not to get anything in 2 hours is usually fixed with a reset. I thought resetting is the norm.
    When I am impatient I do pull the battery

    I've had my pearl for a year and its almost like new. No problems at all with the hardware.

    What happens when You use "Soft Reset"? Maybe I can help You with this one...

    Also if all else fails Power it On and Off a couple times... I do that from time to time. Some good advice for my fellow Yahoo Messenger Junkies. replace BBM with Yahoo Messenger, and put that on tha home screen. A yellow smiling face instead of a gray dead one means you're good to go as far as connection.

    Re: DONT DO battery pulls to reset phone!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~IMHO battery pull and soft reset are not the same. Soft reset is not nearly as effective when my Pearl is dragging along. The battery cover seems fine to me as long as it is not abused.

    Re: DONT DO battery pulls to reset phone!

    I do both. The battery door is no more or less flimsy than any other plastic phone I've owned. They've all had a weak link part somewhere.

    I like soft reset, but sometimes "the pull" feels better.

    battery pulls are the best way to actually reset the pearl... soft reset is still a program, and programs can freeze or work improperly..

    The battery pul seems the best way, and solves oh so many problems...

    Re: DONT DO battery pulls to reset phone!

    The battery cover is indeed flimsy and definately the worst designed part of the pearl, but you say it is HARD to remove the cover?? My main issue is that mine is too EASY to remove. The latch does practically nothing. If I push up hard enough on the cover, I can remove it without even pushing the release button. This is because the plastic is flimsy and gives, and also because the latch's spring is not very strong. The cover has come off several times while pulling the pearl out of my pocket. I would be HAPPY if my cover was hard to remove!
