- ok i am having some problems, i am a new BB user. i have the pearl 8130 and when i get crappy service and it goes to 1x it gets stuck there and the only way i have found to fix it is to pull the batter, i find this kind of a pain in the *** cuz i have the otterbox. is there anyother way i can resolve this. i love the BB but hate this **** at the same time. thanks04-19-08 04:08 PM
- Have you contacted Sprint about this?
Are you going into rurals areas when this happens?
The reason is it so slow on 1X is because:
1X is CDMA2000 which gets 153 kbps.
1XEV is 3G - CMDA2000, which gets 6.2Mbps..
In 2009/2010, CMDA2000 is supposed to move into the 64 Mbps DL range.04-19-08 05:45 PM

- I have the same issue sometimes. All I do is turn off the mobile connections under my setting and turn it right back on. Problem solved. It's better than a battery pull since it doesn't take too long. It's a pain, I know. I think something's up with Sprint's network cuz I usually have to do this a couple times a day. I have multiple issues with my 8130 but the nearest repair store is an hour from me so I have yet to have the time to take it out there and get it exchanged for a new one. Let me know if this works for you.

I had been doing the "remove battery" and the "turn off network", that required disconnecting from the internet.
Using the "Call Voicemail" technique allows me to maintain my connection. I just call voicemail and it switches to 1XEV, and all is well again. Great solution!
Thank you for taking the time to post regarding this issue.
Though I do like the larger size and features of the 8830--- I must say that I love this pearl 8130 (I have both). It is tiny and extremely powerful. Works beautifully as a modem for my computer while traveling, even in remote locations.10-21-08 10:19 PM
