Ok, I tried the search feature and only got past about a page before I got a headache trying to find the thread that might mention about this. Might as well make a new thread about it if there's already one somewhere down the bottom of the pile.
Here's the tale of woe for my 6 month-old Curve in near-perfect condition except that it was running OS 188.8.131.52 for two, maybe three weeks now. It had been running flawlessly without much issues, and since I'm hearing-impaired, I do not use the phone feature at all - I only use it for data purposes. The only 3rd party applications that I have installed on the phone are: JiveTalk, Google Maps, BB Maps (not really a 3rd party), KA-GLOM, Opera Mini, Telenav and a couple of other apps that I do not remember the name to.
Before I went to bed last night, the Curve was running great, I plugged it into the wall charger right before I went to bed and checked for any mail or IM's before snoozing off and it was working fine.
When I woke up, picked up my 8320, it was on the hourglass screen and then all of a sudden it reboots with red LED as if I had pressed alt, right shift key and delete except I had performed no inputs to the blackberry itself. It continuously reboots every 10 seconds after it does the reboot thing - which means that the phone will not be able to connect to the Desktop Manager. I tried removing the microSD card and checked the contacts on the SIM card and powered the phone without the SIM card and it's still doing the reboot dance every 10 seconds.
I have jl_Cmdr running but I don't know if it will work on a phone that continuously reboots like that. I do have several back-up files for my Curve but I am unable to push them to the device.
Any help will be appreciated. I don't know what to do short of having to call T-Mobile to fix the phone. The nearest T-Mobile store is at least 3 hours away. That can't do. (However, I can always go to an AT&T store in town, but that can't do too!)
EDIT: I think I posted this in the wrong forum by accident - I think I meant to post it in the 8300 Series Discussion subforum but I'll see what happens with this subforum since after all I *am* running beta OS on it.
