Default MyFaves might be the culprit?

Please Login to Remove!

Whenever I tried to edit contact, eg. add an icon to a contact under MyFaves, my Pearl crashed.

This has been the "God knows how many times". This is also how I singled out that it should be MyFaves which I added to my phone the other day. Ever since nightmares showed up.

Maybe it is a conflict between MyFaves and my Vodafone theme? I've been using the Vodafone theme with T-mobile for almost 2 years without any problems.
At first I suspected it was out of memory. Now it seems that MyFaves is the real culprit, anybody seen sth. similar?

Do you have the latest Pearl OS installed. There was an issue with this type of thing in the old OS. Also you may want to update your profile to state the 8100.

Once I reinstalled everything, 1st thing I will do is cancel MyFaves.
or never bother with pretty icons.....however reinstall is a pain in the butt....it is not a smooth process either, it is more of a hit or miss

JL_Cmder sucks, I always got the error to connect error, 100%.......you never know when it really works. Sometimes the 507 error came from nowhere ...............and then I was able to reinstall

I have my Fav 5 turned off, since you do not need the app to take advantage of it.

Finally reinstalled, I am not going to touch MyFaves anymore, let's see if my BB would stay functioning all the time

until my future upgrade

Actually it might not be MyFaves, this time, I chose to hide the MyFaves applications after a reinstall.

When I was browsing my emails, my phone crashed. I saw the red light, my screen disappeared into total blackness. It seems that I could only use the phone normally for a couple of hours, then out of the blue, it crashed.

Not sure what's going on. Somebody can offer some ideas?

This is all in the timing, you have to catch it just right...with all this practice you might become a guru with it!
