    SAD day...

    Advertisement



    My pearl is fried.. I didn't get it wet..to my knowledge (I have a 3 yr old that loves my phone). I can't get it to do anything..I press the trackball and it takes me to my call log...can't answer calls..can't answer texts...what a helpless feeling! I hope this has nothing to do with the cleaning of the trackball I did a few days ago. Guess it's time to upgrade...


    Sorry, just had to vent..

    Breaks my heart to hear this Jodi. Our Blackberrys become so a part of us. Sorry for you.
    Doubtful your cleaning caused this. Damage must've been done prior to that. Or you may have just needed a new trackball assembly cause yours simply wore out.
    Try www.bbtrackball.com
    $12.99, right here in U.S.
    Simple to install, and it may bring Pearly back to life

    That's what we are here for. You might wish to remove the battery, place it up on a shelf and let it dry until monday. Even if you don't think its wet, it doesn't take much, & leaving it sit (as hard as that is) will serve you well. It may not require anything more than that. To further mess with it now is not needed.
    Hope this helps- from the voice of experience...

    Cheers

    Hope it sorts itself out. If all else fail you might be able to sell it for parts in the buy/sell/trade section.

    That could be what caused any damage. Cute as kids are, an expensive
    device like a BB is not really a good idea for the little ones to play with.
    Not unless you have the money to spare to buy more when they break

    Can you get DM to recognize your device when connected to PC? If so you can probably go ahead and wipe it using JL_Cmder ~ See my blog for a tutorial,
    and then reinstall your OS.

    I can personally attest to JL_Cmder working as advertised. Just follow Lava's tutorial. This might be all you need. Good luck

    If it can be fixed, the folks here can help you do it. Ive bricked my 8700, and 8100 twice (plz dont ask) and folks like Gary, CMangum, RoGro, and The Bassman got me up and running. Hang in there.

    Amazing thing happened!! I plugged my phone in to see if it would be recognized by DM....not only was it recognized..but, my texting works again! I haven't tried calling on it yet. So, not sure about that one. Why would plugging it in fix it..anyone know?

    Now for the bigger problem...I ordered a Curve online last night when I maybe didnt need to. lol
