Radio always goes OFF on my Blackberry Pearl 8130 from Sprint.  Even after I remove the battery for several minutes, when I reinsert battery and turn on device and check that battery status is 95% or higher, and after I then go into Manage Connections and I turn ON Mobile Network, Radio only stays on while I remain at the Manage Connections screen.  Soon after I return to the Desktop, Radio always turns OFF.  Can this be fixed?

I would wipe the handheld completing using the Javaloader application that you can download. Once this is done, I would re-install the newewst operating system that you can download from Sprint, and see if that works.

Wiping the handheld is pretty intense.  But you may be right because nothing else seems to work.  I already installed the Blackberry Desktop Manager software on my computer so I could have a backup of the data on my Blackberry Pearl 8130.  Do you know if this Javaloader application for uninstalling is part of the Desktop Manager or available through it?

No, it is not available through it.

That is an app someone cooked up to make using Javaloader easier, and I hear it works well. I realize that wiping the handheld is pretty intense, but think of it like this... if somehow a windows driver got corrupt on your PC, Windows could do some wierd stuff... and the only thing you could do is scratch the OS and reload. This is the same picture i think.

It was a hardware problem.  The device has been scrapped.  Thanks for the idea.  Fast response is good.  Just didn't work.
