    forever to power on.....

    Advertisement



    im not sure if its my phone or not since this is the first blackberry ive owned.....but is it normal for the phone to take a while (sometimes 4-5 minutes) to power on? i usually leave it on, but it kind of makes me nutes.

    any solutions to this? it would be great to power on even as fast as my windows mobile phones(which still took about 1 minute)

    When you first turn on your Pearl it takes a while because it loads some stuff and checks some security stuff or whatever.

    This will also happen if you take the battery out or to a SoftReset.

    But if you just power it down with the power button, then turn it back on later or right afterwards mine turns on pretty fast. I've never had this conversation before, though so I'm not sure about others.

    Welcome to the Stacks Johnbb. Have you done a battery pull recently?
