    I don't 100% know what happened, but when you're online to check the thread out, let me know some things....

    How new is your Pearl?

    Is your battery new or old?

    Do you use a car charger, and if you do is it a 3rd party charger?

    I'm a newb, but for what it's worth, I think I know the answer.

    I've encountered this with all USB charging phones. If you allow the battery to completely die out, the phone will only recharge with a wall adapter. I think it has something to do with the charging rates of USB being different than a wall charge.

    Try charging off a wall charger and see if it will hold a charge.

    It appears that they bought a wall charger and that didn't fix the problem assuming it was a wall charger that you went and bought

    New update!!!
    I pluged the BB directly into the pc and took the battery off.
    finally the computer recognized it.
    I went to BB desktop manager then went to backup and restore. but it wouldnt allow me to restore it somehow.

    I think when it restores it has to restart the device which will not work without a battery.

    You have to insert the battery right after it begins to install the OS. I went thru this many times with 2 Pearls.

    Hady are you still having issues with this?

    Here are the directions if you still need them to get your device up and running.

    You won't be able to restore stuff if u have to uninstall and reinstall Desktop Manager and the device OS. Your BB will be just like it was when u got it.
