I got my blackberry pearl through alltel in Dec of 07. For the past week or so it has been locking up on me at random times. Normally when this happens I can pull the battery for about 30 sec, put it back in, and the phone will boot up fine. Today was different.
My phone locked and I pulled the batt. When I put it back in it shows the hourglass for a few seconds, then the screen goes blank and the red light comes on, then the hourglass comes back, then the screen goes blank and the red light comes back on. It has been doing this for about an hour now.
