Default Accessing Address Book Causes Freezing

Please Login to Remove!

As the title states, when I go and try to access my Address Book it freezes, not loading up my contacts, still on the menu page. I can't move the cursor while in this state. I have to press the end call button to get out of it. Any solutions?

If no solutions I just might return it to AT&T and ask for a new one as I only had it for 3 weeks.

I just slap the device into my palm (battery facing palm). If that doesn't solve your issue check to see if you have content protection enabled and if it inlcudes the address book. Other than that double check that your contacts are on the device and not on the SIM Card.

Good Luck!

Thanks Mister, I'll use that advice when I need to again. Removing the battery solved the issue, I wonder why. Thanks for tips guys!

Sorry for stirring things up. I guess its just in my region. I talked to another AT&T user and they said they're experiencing it too. Sorry.

Sounds like you have a faulty phone if it was mine I'd return it
