    Question Tmobile dropped calls on Pearl

    Advertisement



    Hey Pinstackers!
    I have a Tmobile Pearl and it have been dropping calls for every call I make no matter where i m standing.
    I was just wondering if any other Pearl users have dropped calls as well.
    Thank You.

    Also, I was trying to download this Super Mario theme i found but the link didn't go through. I hope someone knows where to get this theme...^^

    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...9-post255.html ---that's the theme that i can't download. HELP??
    THANK U
    KeVin 4 Sho~

    Re: Tmobile dropped calls on Pearl

    Hi kevin430,

    I'm a T-Mobile Pearl user and have never had a dropped call. Even below ground in cement faults. So i can't help too much other than post that i have not had any.

    As for the theme link? Seems the site is down and or the link is no longer available. I get the same results as you do.

    i dont know if its just a tmobile thing but after talking 4 hours continous still sitting in the same spot a minute later the call is dropped. It has happened twice. But that is the only dropped call I have had.

    Re: Tmobile dropped calls on Pearl

    I actually have dropped alot less calls w/my blackberry than w/any other phone. In the underground parking garage where I work at, I always dropped my call going into the garage, but have not dropped a call since I got my pearl.

    Re: Tmobile dropped calls on Pearl

    I'm an avid TMO fan.. i admit.. before I used to get a lot of dropped calls..then i talked to a friend who worked for tmo.. and they said usually the drop calls can be a result of 2 things.. 1) Problems with cell towers 2) the cell phone itself.. I went through drop calls when I had motorola.. but now with my pearl I haven't had problems.. you should probably call tmobile and talk to their tech department.. if you have complaints.. i would probably hit them up for some extra minutes too...

    Re: Tmobile dropped calls on Pearl

    Hi, we have deployed 8300 and 8100 on uk O2 and users are getting dropped calls on the 8300 only, I have a large pile of "faulty" devices and the one thing i did notice is the fact they are all Made in Hungary, the Made in Canada ones have had not problems (touch wood). could you guys with problems check the country of manufacture.

    thanks

    Re: Tmobile dropped calls on Pearl

    I drop calls CONSTANTLY! I work in NYC in Rockefeller Center and I can't use my phone at work. Basically the only time I can get stable service is when I am walking on the street. From my office, service is so inconsistent even when I am standing in the same spot with full EDGE support and 3 bars I'll drop calls. When I place a call it takes almost a minute for the call to actually go through, it just says "Calling..." And when i receive calls it will hold for sometimes a few minutes and other times i'll lose them right away, its almost as if the service changes with the freeking wind. I'll look at my phone and it'll say EDGE with 2-4 bars, then a few seconds later, NO SERVICE, Searching... when the phone hasn't even moved. UNACCEPTABLE. I always end up calling the person back, from my landline. so annoying. I don't understand how some people can have such fantastic service and I have such bad service with T-mobile. Its not just my location either. I'll be eating at a restaurant through a thin pain of glass and i won't get service. Sorry, i can go all day about this. I'm just waiting for my contract to end so I can switch to ATT.

    Question Re: Tmobile dropped calls on Pearl

    the previous Perl was fine (made in Mexico), was liquid damaged; I got a new one from Hungary - and it just sucks, dropping calls, bad reception, such a terrible speakers; anyone got the same problem/noticed difference between handhelds made in Hungary/Mexico?

    I think it heavily depends on your 8100's firmware...I had .96 and was getting dropped all the time in my apartment (here in NYC) ---upgraded to .101 and it's dramatically better ....i still drop a call here and there..but most of the time it's solid.

    Re: Tmobile dropped calls on Pearl

    DEFEINITELY an OS issue.

    I had that problem too, but as soon as I upgraded, it was fine.

    the Rogers OS had some issues, but very little, and it was only rarely.

    The ATT OS doesn't have any issues at all with calls, but the phone runs soooooooo slow .....
