    Is my Pearl battery dead?

    Advertisement



    Ack... I noticed my battery was dying out and plugged in the AC adapter, didn't get the icon showing it was charging on the Pearl... plugged in my emergency backup Energizer battery recharger (using aa batteries) and getting no icon either.

    Restarted the phone, unplugged battery, restarted phone... still no icon for charging....

    Phone is less than a yr old... is the battery dead? Assuming warranty doesn't cover this...

    Any help appreciated...

    have you tried the usb cord to your PC? Is the USB jack on the phone loose? Maybe lint in the jack?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ or you could have a damaged USB port on the BB.

    Try plugging it into your PC and see if desktop manager will detect it.

    Hope this helps.

    Warranty won't cover failed battery, but will cover failed USB port.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Be careful if its the USB jack on the side of the BB. I can tell you from first hand experience that, if your carrier is TMobile, be prepared to have to pay for the insurance deductible, if you have it, or buy another BB. I had this same thing happen 6 months ago. I replaced a 7105t because of it and ended up with a huge bill.

    plugged in the cord to my laptop, at first short circuited the laptop, tossed that cord. tried another USB cord into the laptop and BB connect doesn't see the phone. So sounds like the USB port on the Pearl is dead.

    tried another USB cable and shut down my Thinkpad as well. I'm done... I'm calling up Tmobile and see what they'll cover... guessing there's something on the pearl that is causing the cable and USB port to short circuit and shut down.
