    Hey.

    I just got my pearl this morning, I was sick of my sidekick and I love it so far. Although, I really don't know what I'm doing, I'm trying to get the hang of it. Right now i have the hour glass constanly "thinking".. i don't think it should be doing this. I went in my log and cleared it to make sure there weren't apps running.. what else could it be??

    welcome to the stacks! can you fill us in on what you might have been doing when the hourglass showed up? maybe installing something, accessing pics or music on your memory card?

    Well I was creating email accounts and now they are set up and recieving mail to them. That's all I can think of, I don't have a memory card yet so I haven't downloaded anything on it.

    have you tried a battery pull? lots of little ticks like this can be solved with a battery pull. it's usually my first attempt at unsticking a stuck bb.

    It seems that when you fresh start the system from a hard reset or reboot that it sometimes takes a little to get the links running, so the first times that you access something after the reset it takes a little longer and you get the hourglass, but the next time you access it it is almost instantaneous, or at least that is how mine and the wife's are working.

    jaded42, welcome to the stacks. You came to the right place to learn more about your device. Synik is dead on with his suggestion. Any time you are having a problem with your phone, the first thing to try is a battery pull reset. Leave the battery out for at least 1 or 2 minutes.

    Its the miracle cure for a lot of Blackberry Headcolds.
