    Smile Radio Off

    Advertisement



    Ive searched the board for an answer to this and havent been able to find one. When ever i have to "cycle" (so to speak) my pearl, after it comes back on it says radio off. I have to make a call for the radio to actually turn on so i can make/recieve calls. Am I missing something? Is there a way to make it turn on when the phone turns on automatically?

    I know that if you turn the radio off before you cycle power, it will return with the radio off.

    Perhaps, the radio was off when you reset?

    Works the same way with my 8700c.

    The radio must manually be turned-on after a battery-pull.

    However, any other methods of restarting (ie. Alt-Caps-Del, Full Power Off and Turn Off) your Blackberry will automaticlaly reactivate the Radio once the Blackberry has been turned back on.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Yep--mine will do that sometimes, too. Just scroll down and turn the radio on again. Or was that not the answer you were looking for? I am fairly new to the Internet scene, much less that of the BB. So, ignore me if I am stating the obvious, please!

    I have the 7100i, and the wireless is always on unless I turn it off, or I do a master radio reset then the wireless will be off.

    Re: Radio Off

    On mine, it appears to be dependent on how long I leave the Battery out. 15 sec, it's on, 30+ it's off when the BB Powers up.

    Re: Radio Off

    I turn off my Pearl at night and I've noticed that the radio usually remains off after I "turn on" the phone in the morning. I have to make a call to turn it on. Didn't take the battery out. It seems this just started a few weeks ago. It frustrates me because I may be missing calls when I think the phone is on. Can someone help?

    Re: Radio Off

    well you can try the auto on and off feature for the BB, I know this doesn't solve ur problem when it comes to Battery Pulls but it's an alternative to battery pulls; that and you can upgrade the os.

    BTW you find out which version OS you are running by going Options>about it'll look like this v4.2.1.101(Platform 2.3.0.80)

    .101 is the latest build for the pearl
