    My Pearl died on me!!!

    Advertisement



    So after downloading the new OS .101 from this thread
    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...s_4_2_1_a.html
    I began having issues with my Pearl,
    1. It has bogged down my Pearl, it is working so slowly now. I keep getting the hour glass symbol it is driving me NUTS! I have pulled the battery out 3x and still no help. Yes I did a backup as I did this install.
    2. Opera Mini no longer works. I keep trying to get online using Opera and it wont let me. I can still use the BB browser though
    3. It has somehow scrambled my music listing, it is no longer in alpha order like it used to be and cant find a way to put it in alpha order.
    This is the program I downloaded from the first link...
    8100M_PBr4[1].2.1_rel164_PL2.3.0.80_A4.2.1.101

    So then I decided that this isnt worth it, and wanted to go back to my old OS and did so after trial and error, finally got my Pearl wrking again, but it wiped out my calendar, wiped out my address book, I had to copy my SIM phone #s onto my Pearl which I lost all new phone #s I had entered. Yes I did backed up everything when I re-installed the os. This has just been irritating and wish I never tried to upgrade on the os, scared the crap out of me that my baby was sick!

    I lost all of my PIN's aswell

    have you tried to restore the info from your backup?
    Success is not final, Failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that matters.

    Re: My Pearl died on me!!!

    though i have to say that this new multi language OS is really slowing down my pearl as well.

    It's like it's always thinking about something, although it doesn't know what. Phones are not supposed to be like this!! They think about what we tell it to think. LOL,

    anyway, yeah it seems to be fussy and very fickle about its decisions. I want a phone that follows orders and doesn't think twice.

    i might just go back to rogers. i really liked that OS.

    that's my 2c

    Good luck

    I haven't had any issues with slowness on the .101 OS. I went from the rogers os to this one and speeds on my phone increesed. symbols come up easier, suretype works better, better navigation. In my opinion definately a better os.

    Then WTF happened to mine when I downloaded this?!?!
    IDK, I kept reading that it was better/helped more/faster but I dont know what happened when I DL it. My Pearl was running just fine before.

    So, I restored the functions, Thank you! I got everything back EXCEPT the BB Browser. How/where do I get that back from?

    also try and reregister on HRT. menu, options,advanced options, host routing table, menu, register now.

    When you downloaded the OS did you delete the vendor file?

    Yes I did.
    I was gonna try to download the Opera mini browser again, but I cant since I NO browser on my Pearl at all! This sucks

    Nevermind, I figured out that I can DL it to my PC, then TX to my Pearl using DM
