Default BB Bold 8520 playing up

Please Login to Remove!

Slight issue with my 8520 over the last few weeks. Ever now and again (once/twice a day at least) my phone will suddenly freeze and the screen turns white, and when i put the battery out and back in it will either shut down again halfway through resetting or when fully reset is left with no battery whatsoever, which is annoying as it can be on any level of battery before it does this (usually 3 and a half bars)

Any ideas?

Mine is also doing the same. Most the time it won't send my messages, when I do get a message through it freezes for up to 10-15 seconds. Also when I try to play my music it keeps coming up with an error message, it really is starting to annoy me now as I can't seem to do anything with it.

I have done a hard reset a number of times and it doesn't seem to be doing anything.

For both, how much free memory do you have?

What did you do to the device just before this began?

I still have quite a lot of free memory as I don't store that many pictures or any music at all.

The first time it happened, the screen just blacked out although I was on quite low battery - anything since where it freezes and goes white i'll just generally be using it for the internet, twitter or bbm

Thanks - I will do. Will probably take it into the shop in the next few days, just hoping if I did that they dont send it away for repair, would be a massive pain in the arse
