Re: any Pearl 8130 users

Don't know whether this will help, but whenever I have bought original replacement batteries for my Blackberry, they have always arrived with at least quarter power in them, sometimes half power. I can't guarantee that you will get the same but it may be worth a try for the price of a replacement battery.  I tend to use Amazon UK for the replacements. Otherwise who do you know that has the same or similar phone so that you can borrow their battery?

Another thought - Why not use the BB desktop software? Your phone should work with a usb cable into your laptop pc. Then just transfer the data on it.

Re: any Pearl 8130 users

thx for both ideas ~  No one I know uses the BB, so that was out, but gave me the idea to hunt on EBAY, which I have found several for sale,  some as low as 1.00 !!  The cases are a bit worn, but I only need for charging and they include a battery so that will give me an extra one to keep charged !  I  hope this works.  I  have never used a USB cable with the phone, so I may try that for future back up as well !  I  will find  a  way,  just  need patience now !  Thanks again for your reply !!
