Hey guys, I'm on my second Blackberry 8700g from T-mobile, and this is the second time that I am having this problem.

The blackberry will randomly shutdown and reboot, except it doesn't actually boot. It stays on the sand timer flipping around over the T-Mobile logo.

I've even left it overnight (atleast 15 hours) and there was no change.

The only way to get it out of this infinite startup is to connect it to my computer and either load/unload any application on the blackberry.

Not a very good thing to have to do, especially since I can be days away from a computer!

2 choices here. You can use JL_Cmder (in my sig) to wipe the handheld and then attempt to reload the OS from scratch.

Or you can send it back to TMo.

Here are some instructions if you want to try this yourself.
