    Speaker only works when pressing pearl?

    Advertisement



    Ive noticed a few people had problems with the handset speaker breaking but the main speaker still working. My problem is the complete opposite.

    I got a refurb blackberry pearl from Cingular / ATT for 59.99 when I decided to upgrade my 7105
    Anyways, ringtones, and media sound and alarm and anything else that uses the external speaker only plays sound when I put light pressure on the pearl/trackball!

    Could this possibly be an O/S issue? Im using 4.2.0.71

    Or should I just send this thing back to Cingular?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Welcome to Pinstack!

    You can definitely try upgrading the os, not sure if it will work but worth a shot. The other thing will ATT take the phone back. I thought it was kinda like a final sale type of deal.

    Gee... sure hope they will take it back, that would be pretty poor if they didnt. When I read a forum about the deal going on, I know one person had a problem with their refurb, and they ended up getting a brand new one for their troubles.

    Seems like a short to me.

    Anyone know where Cingulars 4.2.1.73 is?
    I can only find 4.2.1.71 which I already have.

    Found that if I apply slight pressure anywhere near the pearl (screen or silver shroud) I get sound, so there must be a short in the phone. Called AT&T and after a half hour they decided to send me another refurb. Hopefully I will have better luck with the new one.

    Thanks
