I upgraded software from Ver 4.2 to 4.5. After the completion my Blackberry 8800 is constantly getting restarted without any reason.
If I press any key then it is allowing me to us the phone, but if the phone is kept idle phone keeps restarting itself automatically.
Please help

Sounds like an SD card issue to me - you have to format the card with the new OS. I saved all my SD goodies to my computer first (using a card reader).

Make sure when you copy everything back over to skip the *.dat files - those (IIRC) can cause problems.

Hey wu-wei
No words to thank you... You just saved my life.
I formatted the Media card and the phone started working fine.
I am thankful to each member of this forum...

No problem at all - I remember the frustration of constant reboots when all I wanted was to get to the 4.5 deliciousness.

Took me a while to finally find the answer - glad I could help.
