    It probably hadn't stopped, it was probably in the middle of it. However, we should be able to get you back online.

    There are two threads you can follow to get back on board.

    Use this one first. If that doesn't work, let us know. The other option is a little more drastic.

    LaTufu, I don't see those threads in your post; Evo, it's not that the PC wont recognize it, it's that the phone is dead except for the flashing LED....

    howdini just follow the thread and the directions in it. It's to reload the OS. Since yours is corrupt.

    Evo and I posted a link to the same post. Like RedDog just said, read the post and follow the steps. The Red light is your Pearl telling you its not dead, its just a little bruised up.

    it's not suppose to be able to turn on....follow the link and directions. Your OS is corrupt you need to reload it.

    IT'S NOT DEAD.

    Remember what the thread tells you Howdini. You may have to do this 10 times before the PC finally sees the device. Have patience. Take a deep breath and hang in there.
