    Loose SIM Card Door

    Advertisement



    Need a little Pearl help here. My SIM card holder door is not staying secure (it does not appear to be broken, just very loose at times). It does not happen every time I take the SIM card out or pull the battery but it is annoying. It was open today after a battery pull because my Pearl started freezing. Anybody seen this before and any solutions?

    Re: Loose SIM Card Door

    I at times have this problem with the sim card. Often my pearl locks because the sim card is not making contact. This happens about once a month. Not sure what the solution is. RIM should not have put the sd card back there. It is just annoying if you have multiple cards with MP3 etc on them.

    I have this same problem. I thought it was me one. I don't have any solution to this problem. I just try to limit the use of removing my batteries.

    Do you lock the card holder?

    I know Erica switches between phones. Have no clue about the others though.

    Re: Loose SIM Card Door

    I never take my sim out. I have had problems where the phone locks, so I go to pull the battery and the sim is practically out of the holder. I have had the phone since Christmas. I have had this problem a couple times. It just seems that the sim door is weakly built. Same with the door to hold the sd card.

    Also what is with the need to pull the battery to do a soft reset?

    Over all I love the pearl. I am a heavy email user for business and I like being in contact even away from my desk.

    Re: Loose SIM Card Door

    the holder is pretty flimsy and with anything but the softest of touch each time you open/close has probably caused it to loosen. mine is holding perfectly since I bought it beginning of nov, but I have only taken it in/out maybe 2..3 times?

    Battery pull is a big deal when you talk BB. But I never take my sum out either.

    Re: Loose SIM Card Door

    Just an update. I may or may not be getting a NEW BB Pearl soon (I have to decide if my addiction is strong enough to not stop using CrackBerry). Not because of the SIM card door but because the thing has shut down for the second time but THIS time will not reboot. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR (That is unless I decide to just cancel my BIS Add On and just use my Sidekick. I have had 9 BlackBerry's since 2002 when I got my 950 for AOL Mobile Communicator...I've had 2 7730's, 3 7100t's, 2 7105t's and 1 black Pearl 8100 since).

    Sorry that you are having problems with the pearl. I have a feeling that your addiction will be strong enough for you to want to stick with a BB instead of going back to the sidekick. Let us know how it goes

    Or if you can wait until May 7th, you can get the 8320.
