Exclamation Bizarre 9700 problem with OS Cannot Edit or Add Contact List Entries!!!

Please Login to Remove!

Okay, this BlackBerry 9700 of mine just keeps finding new ways to get on my last nerve... I've never had more bizarre glitches with a BlackBerry than I have with this 9700. It's rapidly approaching Danger HipTop/T-Mobile Sidekick levels of EPIC FAILURE here.

Forget about the highly inaccurate battery meter, which causes the phone to suddenly go from 1 bars of battery strength to completely dead, shut down, and unable to turn on, with no intermediary steps in-between. Forget about the regular complete bogging down of the CPU, causing a seemingly endless spinning clock/hourglass. Forget about the insanely high amount of free onboard memory that just slowly disappears until I do a mass wipe of a few months worth of emails, along with my temporary caches. No, forget about all of that.


At first, I thought it was because I was down to only about 5 MB free space. So, I mass deleted a few months worth of emails, basically everything prior to January 1, 2012. Then I cleared out my caches and cookies for the web browser. Rebooted and had more like 35 MB clear. Still didn't fix the problem. So, I deleted really old entries in the Contact List, people I haven't talked to or heard from in over 5 years. STILL nothing.

Every time I try to Edit a Contact List Entry, or Add a new entry, the first time I click on that option in the menu, nothing happens. The second time I click on that option, the phone just locks up, sometimes necessitating a soft reset to snap it out of it.

Since I know someone's going to ask, here's a complete run-down of everything that's on my BlackBerry 9700 with T-Mobile:

PLEASE tell me that one of you knows where this problem is coming from and how I can fix it!

But be forewarned... the first one to suggest "upgrading" to OS 6.0 gets to play a little game called Ro Sham Bo with me, and I'm going first!
