Last night when I was making calls on my BB8300, I was unable to hold a call for more than 5 secs. Incoming and outgoing calls all got cut off and the screen would read "Call Failed" and I would then have no signal, and it would search for the network. After finding the network and getting full reception at times, but the same problems would occur.
When I would place a call, it would disconnect exactly around 4-5 seconds, the same time everytime because when I called my VM, I would hear the exact same amount of the message each time I called. I was still however, receiving emails.
I followed all the reset functions, took out all 3rd party apps, and called tech support. They told me to reset and do all the normal problem solving things, but to no avail. I checked sim cards and found that it had to be my unit because the problems occured with the same sim cards, but I was able to make calls with another phone with MY sim card in it.
When I looked at it this morning it had the same problems however, once I got into the AT&T exchange center, all calls and data started working fine and still, right now, my phone is functioning perfectly. It's like I have a intermittent BB working for me, however I cannot repeat the failed results that ailed me all night. Does this sound like a faulty BB or could it possibly be a strange, BB specific, network problem (which I know sounds ridiculous)? Has anyone had this happen to them for maybe a longer term and did you have to take it back?
