    Hi there,
    Before I completely loose my cool can anyone tell me how to switch the Standby mode off as I'm missing calls and texts. Theres no ringtone when in standby and i only know theres someone calling when the screens flashing.
    The battery life on the Pearl is diabolical as i find myself charging it every 2 days - is this the case for everyone?
    Sorry for my haste - jus a lil frustrated with my new toy already!

    You hold the button on the top of your phone(mute) to enter standby mode and you hit it again to get out of it. I would suggest not using it if you dont like it.

    What OS version is your pearl running The original T-MO OS(4.2.0.42) had some issues with standby

    Charging you phone every 2 days? thats seems good to me my nokia and other phones last about the same and they do alot less.

    Please fill in your Profile information with device and carrier etc... so we may better assist you in the future.

    When I put mine in Standby, I still get calls and text. You might want to play around wiht the settings.

    Just charge it every night like many of us do. I have a charger at home, one at work and a car charger they sell on Ebay for 99 cents.

    Also try using the on/off timer to turn it off when you go to bed and on before you get up. This saves the battery and does a reset too which helps sometimes.

    I use the password lock instead of standby. You can adjust how long before it locks but you also get all txt, phone alerts, vibrations, etc...
