    Pearl Phone Book - Help Please!!!

    Advertisement



    Hi there

    I did some work yesterday on my laptop organising my contacts in Outlook. Adding some, deleting some and editing some.

    There are 295 of them altogether.

    But since then, when I use the Pearl to dial a number, it seems only to search through about 15 of the contacts - not the other 280!!!!

    What i mean is that, from the Pearl homescreen, I used to be able to typ in the first few letters of the contact name and then select the correct number using the trackball.

    Now, though, the same thing happens but the Pearl only searches through a kind of "mini" version of my contacts with just 15 random contacts in it!!!

    The others are there but I need tos croll manually through all 295 contacts to get to the one I want!!!

    Please help

    Thanks

    Ian

    Hello isaune. Welcome to pinstack. Maybe take the battery out to reboot your BB. I hope that helps, if not a pearl expert should help you shortly.

    isaune, Welcome to PinStack.

    Remeber that little trick, it should be the first thing you try whenever your BB acts up or slows down. I do it periodically about once a week or more, depending on how the Pearl is acting.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    Re: Pearl Phone Book - Help Please!!!

    Funny addendum to this story. I have a 2005 Jeep Cherokee. A month or so ago, my keyless entry stopped working. Well I figured when I got home, I'd check my other key fab. Still didnt work. Now I was perplexed. So I figured I'd just call the dealer the next day. So I go to get in my car, and it wont start, or even turn over. So I figured, what the heck, there are tons of computer components, maybe I should do a "battery pull" So I disconnected the battery, waited about 20 minutes, and reconnected. Viola! Worked like a charm. So the morale to the story, DON'T FORGET THE BATTERY PULL =)

    The battery pull usually solves the issue
