    My pearl is officially a POS

    Advertisement



    Ok, I just cant deal with the love/hate relationship I have with this phone. Regardless of the battery issue. Im sitting here with the phone in my hand watching it go from 2/3 bars of reception to all of a sudden "searching for network" then 10 seconds later back to 2/3 bars. While its on 2 bars I get a call, is sounds like someone is shaking tin foil in my ear. This happens twice in a row. I try calling them back whne the phone is showing 3 bars. Call failed. Again, this happens twice in a row. Pulling battery and sim out right now.

    Im about to see how aerodynamic this phone is.

    Not good to hear, are you sure its not where you are? My pearl used to do that when I first got it, but not anymore.

    That's no fun. Have you taken it to the carrier and have them troubleshoot your phone???

    I AM THE CARRIER!@!@

    Ok so the phone is VERY aerodynamic. However, the battery cover is not all that strong. Its in two pieces however its a good thing I had the best skins on there as its holding it together.

    That being said, calls are going through now. LOL.

    EDIT* no, theyre not going through. I never had these issues with any Nokia. :-(

    I found a cheap one off ebay. I gotta tell you though, the best skins ever are awesome at protecting the Pearl. I threw it across the room and it nailed my coffee table (solid wood). The back cover, battery and front piece went in different directions. Theres a scrape on the front top part by the internal speaker above the screen but its only on the bestskin. Im truly impressed with it.

    Yeah yeah on the anger management. I havent thrown anything or kicked anything or broken anything in a really long time. It was due.

    All I have to say is that could have been a pretty expensive game of Phone Toss. Sounds like you're in a poor coverage area, or that the nearest tower to you is having problem. Call TMO CS and see if there is a maintenance order in your area.
