Welcome to the Stacks Maddog. Try a quick battery pull reset (take out battery with BB on then hold down the power button for at least 30 seconds before putting in back in). Let us know if that helps.
Hey I just recieved the blackberry pearl 8100 today. Whenever I press the menu key or click the trackball, the menu only flashes up and doesn't let me select anything.
I got to my address book
Hit the menu button
and it automatically calls my contact without any other choices
has anybody had a similar problem?
or am I making a newbie mistake?
any insight would be GREATLY appreciated
Just did it. When the BB went back on there was a little loading hourglass then it was back to normal...BUT...the menu button still did not function. Same problem as described above. It just flashes the drop down menu and picks the choice right away.
Okay I'll be headnig over fo Cingular this week. Thanks guys.
try to reinstall the latest os .71 if you do not already have it
i just figured out the menu works when i hold ALT and menu or trackball....not sure if that's how it's supposed to be?
nope that's not correct it does sound like the menu button is getting hit twice.
could be a defective button, my thoughts are to head down to cingy if it's that new!
Been a long while since last login. Sorry all, adjusting to a new life is great and hell at the same time!!
I have the same problem with my phone, but it sends out tons of text messages right when i turn on the phone.
Id say get an exchange and dont bother your self reinstalling the OS.
thanks for the advice everyone. I exchanged it and my new one is working flawlessly.
