    Guess it wasn't fixed. Pearl won't power on, no battery symbol.

    Pearl first gave a sim card error. Then when I do battery pull it won't turn on and just shows a battery symbol with a hash through it. i took out the battery and held down the power button for 30 seconds, which had worked before and that doesn't do it. any suggestions?? i connected it to the computer. maybe I should reset the OS? How do I do that?

    sounds like the battery is dead...have you tried charging it?

    Re: Guess it wasn't fixed. Pearl won't power on, no battery symbol.

    cingular didn't walk me through anything, they are just trying to get me to send in the phone. they said i should try to see if it's the battery, which I will do tomorrow at a cingular store.

    has anyone else had this error and fixed it? How can I reset the OS? I'd like to try that.

    what I'm worried about is that the phone shows a bit of pink on the TINY square because that part of the phone got wet when the cover was off months ago. THe problem happening cannot be from water damage but I'm afraid they are going to say my warranty is off. any suggestions?

    well...if you aren't getting any kind of screen, then you are SOL right this minute...

    here is a link on how to upgrade your OS

    i suspect you may need this, since the bb is unresponsive

    here is a link to the latest cingular/att software:

    choose the red pearl OS from the drop down menu...

    it started working again. randomly. i saved all those links because I'm sure it will happen again. I think I'm going to update the OS now after saving all my contacts and stuff. do you recommend anything different for me to do now that I can power it on?


    thanks so much for helping me out
