I have a Curve 8350i with Nextel that I got on December 26th. I performed the latest update that was earlier this week or last week. Which looks like it has System Software version 18.104.22.168
On Friday the 13
, my phone went into some crazy mode where it said "wiping" and showed a white screen and then it said "scrubbing" with a similar white screen, both 'modes' showed a progress bar as well. These two modes took roughly an hour to finish. I took it to a Nextel store and they didn't know what it was doing. Battery pulls did nothing except prolong it as it would restart upong reinserting the battery.
Anyway, after it finished these two modes, it was as expected, wiped clean of all data. Ever since, even after several deletions/reinstalls and a battery pull, Opera Mini has acted up.
First when I have Opera Mini open and I press the Blackberry button, the scroll wheel quits working and a little tiny arrow shows up on the bottom of the screen. Depressing the BB button a second time gets rid of the little tiny arrow and the allows the scroll wheel to work again.
Each time when I first install opera and the very first time I open it and push the BB button, that menu does pop up, but when I scroll through it, it distorts and dissapears. After that, it doesn't pop up at all.
I am at a loss, as far as the wiping and scrubbing thing is concerned, the Sprint/Nextel folks both in the store and over the phone have no clue why it did that. I've talked to five of them and none of them have heard of one of these phones going into a "Scrubbing" mode before either.
Sorry for the long post and Thanks in advance for any help...
