    Power OFF Problem

    Advertisement



    When I hold down my power button (End), the Pearl doesn't power down, it say's that it is Powering Down, but when I restart, the Pearl comes back on immediately. It used to take a minute or two with the hourglass.
    When I use soft reset it takes awhile to reboot. HELP!! TIA

    How long are you holding down the the red power button? Hold it down for a few seconds

    If you are having problems I would upgrade to the lastest OS which is 4.2.1.96

    It's not a big deal. Before the OS upgrade make sure you upgrade the DM to the latest version first.

    Tia, this same thing happens with my phone. I noticed that when I hold down the red hangup button the phone will say it is powering down and will turn back on at such and such time and then shuts off but when I hit the button again it fires right back up. However you will notice that apps are closed and the phone is searching for a network connection. We are just used to how long it takes to reboot the phone. I wouldn't worry about it. It is supposed to do that. Ive had several pearls and they all do that.

    holding the power button does power the phone down. and it doest start up immediately.. but thats not a reset. its the reset that takes a loong time. after power down, you will not recieve any calls , messages or mails.
