Default Bold 9780 Problem

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, i had a bold 9700 for 13 months which was unfaulty, until the girlfriend threw it against a wall, a couple of weeks ago i brought a 9780 off ebay, 3 weeks old for 195.

so ive got the phone looks in perfect condition, but it freezes for about 60 seconds most the time when i go on the web browser, and even when i use the camera?

i plugged it into my computer to do the update, it ses urgent updates on the application side so i click apply and it does it then just stops, so i replug it in and try it again and it still ses it needs to be updated? obviously brought a dodgy phone but i have no other phone, it rings and tx's fine?

any ideas, thanks everyone!

You're quite possibly dealing with a damaged BlackBerry. Returning it is your first best option.

If you want to continue to fiddle with it you can try wiping with JL_Commander and reinstalling the OS.

How do I wipe the BlackBerry using Jl Cmder? - BlackBerryFAQ

At the top of the 9700 forum there is a link to the latest OS for the 9780.

Recently I had to change my service provider because of disturbed services and accordingly I got the service provider lock opened from a registered BB shop. Then it accepted new service provider. But then it is getting frozen again frequently.

Try restarting it without the memory card installed. Either run it for a day or so with no microSD card or use a smaller cheaper one. 2GB cards are inexpensive. I have heard of cases where a bad microSD card can cause instability problems. Not common, but not unheard of either.
