    so i just recently got a bb pearl, first one for me, and at first i loved it, but now idk if i can handle it. the battery doesnt stay charged i gave it a full charge last nite woke up this morning and my phone was dead i always see the arrows going like if im connected to the browser when i am not even on it, the little clock thing always comes on when i try to go to applications and i am getting so frustrated with this already. Can anyone please give me any tips or tricks to help my bb out? oh ya i did one thing a friend of mine gave me advice with and that was to erase the cookies and i did but same stuff is happening. Thanx!!!!

    Make sure you're closing your apps correctly! To close them properly, just press Menu and select Close.

    You could have apps running in your background that you don't know about. On your homescreen, press and hold Alt (bottom left) key and press the Back key. This will bring up a screen of apps that are running. There are five that can't be completely closed, these would include Home, Phone, Browser, BBM and Messages. You can close them but they'll remain on the screen. Just close those and any other that are running.

    if it's new it may be a faulty battery get it replaced from where you got it from.

    No, she gave a specific clue as to what her problem is, the constant arrows. Leaving apps running in the background will kill battery life in relatively short order. Leaving one of the social apps or a GPS running will drain a battery VERY quickly.

    Some cases have mentioned that the draw was enough to make the phone heat up substantially.

    Tabrina, go with what Trem posted, and if you have further problems, please add more or PM one of us if necessary, should be able to get you back in the good here soon!

    With the phone on, remove the battery, then replace it and it'll reboot the phone. That's a battery pull.

    Download the program Quickpull here on ctackberry. That way you can do a battery pull without actually removing the battery and schedule a battery pull as well.

    no i dont have a face book installed....i have a myspace does that make a difference?

    If myspace pushes email notifications to your Blackberry like FaceBook does then that may be the problem. Try uninstalling Myspace then restart your Blackberry and see if that fixes it. I had the non-stop hour glass at one time. Tried several restarts and still happened. I finally unistalled FaceBook then restarted the phone and receieved many FaceBook notifications that were from a few days past and some present. The hour glass went away for good....knock on wood. I guess FaceBook was attempting to push noticications to my Pearl but had trouble doing so. So try unistalling Myspace then restart your phone and let us know what happens. If that fixes it then you can probably install Myspace again.

    Newbie here. After reading through this thread, I discovered my problem was twofold. I had WAY too many apps running (all of them). Because I didn't know how to CLOSE an app. I thought the END button closed them. I also went ahead and deleted a few that could cause me problems that I didn't use anyway.

    Thanks !!!
