Will somebody please help with my BB Pearl 8110 by walking me through
the complete resolution to this problem?
It all began by turning itself on and off, on and off.
I checked for updates an began the update process to v 5?
Unfortunately it must've turned itself on and off, on and off causing
App Error 523 Reset.
I followed other advice like hard and soft reboots? and my BB began
Blinking 4 times then once repeatedly.
So after going through, what I thought were the correct steps to recover
I've once again returned to
App Error 523 Reset.
At this point all I want is my BlackBerry back. Forget any personal items
I once had. I'll start all over again.
Thanks a bunch for any help and if it helps I will surely post so.

Here's what I finally did to solve my problem,
1. Threw my BB8110 as far as I could
2. Located it and stomped on it
3. Kicked it around a bit
4. Poured lighter fluid on it and lit it up
5. Picked up the pieces and put them in the garbage disposal
6. Removed the ruined garbage disposal and threw it out with yesterdays trash
I don't have the error message or the blinking red light anymore.
or that 8110..Good luck with those who do and try to seek help here.

We are so sorry that you are having so many difficulties. While many experience the same (a search here will reveal that fact), there are also many who have very positive experiences with their BB. Not every device is suitable for everyone -- which IMHO is why there are so many choices.
FYI -- these forums are a user-to-user support channel, not a user-to-RIM conduit. As such, it is unfortunate that we all missed your post and did not provide any useful responses to you...but, we are volunteers and not paid RIM support folks...sometime we just miss things. But a perusal through these forums will I think show your experience to be abnormal (as far as helpfulness in these forums is concerned). But, yes, I am biased...I volunteer a lot of time here when I can.
For the benefit of others who search and find this thread, here is the relevant KB for resolving the 523 error:

I understand about the help being user to user. How else would we get responses in such a timely manner?
I appreciate you all for being there for us. Really I do. If I can't turn it on, call(phone) others by name(voice dial), enter and be reminded by my calendar appointments, take pictures or videos and simultaneously email or text message them, or calculate, communicate or congratulate at the push of a button it doesn't work. If I need to take more than two steps to remedy any problem then it's beyond me. I'm sorry. Believe me. I don't need somebody to 'hold' my hand' or 'walk me through' any problem. I need somebody to take ownership of this problem and fix it themselves. I don't want to know how it's been fixed. That'll just turn my brain from jello to pudding.
I have a perfectly fine BlackBerry Pearl 8110, Titanium save for the OS problem now sitting docile in the new box in which my new BlackBerry Pearl 8110, Titanium came in. Luckily, and totally unbeknownst to me, I had a complete backup on my laptop with which I was able to restore order and calm to my so called life.
Thank you all for being there in our hours of needs.
One faithful BlackBerry Pearl 8110, Titanium user.
