    How long is it chargin for? If the battery turned off on its own cause it was completely dead it usually takes like 30min for to turn on.

    It has been charging for atleat an hour. but when you charge it, when it is completly dead, isn't the LED supposed to flash to show an active charge?

    I don't think the led will flash when it is charging. The led will show amber when the battery level is low (according to the manual). With an hour of charging, it should have enough juice to be able to turn the phone on - try powering up now.

    Nope, Pearl still wont turn on, but I dont see how a 1/4th of a battery would drain so fast. its not like I was doing 4 things at once. Even when im heavly using it I can't drain 1/4 of a battery in 3 hours. im stumped, I'll hit up the BB website

    Ye it should work by now. I don't think its the battery now. Might be the charger or a hardware issue.

    I was chatting to a Cingular Tech and she said to take it to a local Cingular shop and have them check the battery. She said for me to take the reciept w/ me but I got this as a Xmas present, and my mom dosen't have the reciept, all she has is the order status update. i hope they dont need the reciept

    just got back from the cingular store and the lady tried one of thier functioning batteries and the pearl didn't turn on, so i called cingular and the rep is sending me out a new pearl. it turned out to be the phone. if there was water damage where would i find this misterious "circle" that changes colors?
