BB Pearl HELP - "radio" always turns off!

This just started happening yesterday.  The radio will be off and therefore isn't connected to a network.  I can turn it back on manually in order to make a call or catch up on missed texts but in about 1 minute it automatically switches back off.  I've tried restarting it and removing the battery a couple times.  Any thoughts?

Re: BB Pearl HELP - "radio" always turns off!

This has been happening to me for three weeks now.  Horribly inconvenient!!!  The phone is nearly useless like this.  I have been reading up on the issue, trying every trick in the book without success.  I have wiped the phone, updated the software, and even installed the latest operating system without any luck.  I feel it is a hopeless situation, especially there isn't anyone at BlackBerry that responds to these posts or anyone there to talk with about this issue.  Please, if anyone has any info, post it and help us out!!!
