    Question Pearl Won't Power Up... Out of Nowhere

    Advertisement



    I use my phone as a wake up alarm and after i woke up and took a shower and came back to check some text mesaages the phone was totally inactive and blank. Just a flashing red light on top. Battery was fully charged and pulling ht battery and replacing it did nothing. Just got this phone like 3 weeks ago and unlocked it for AT&T. When I connect it to my pc it makes a usb connect and disconnect noise like every 5 secs but is never recognized by my software.... really loved this phone

    PLEASE TELL ME I CAN FIX THIS

    PS just started using a new moto h500 bluetooth headset the night b4... could that be an issue?

    Are you getting any error messages at all? BTW, have you done a backup recently?

    I went thru the same thing TWICE. It got to the point where I got tired of fussing with it and replaced them. My 3rd Pearl works fine as an MP3 player now LOL
