| | Curve 8310 crashes, phone call buzzing sounds

I've had my lovely BB Curve 8310 for about 18 months now and it has been a real star so I'm suprised to say that it started misbehaving about 2 weeks ago.
It shuts itself off randomly - complete crash - you cannot turn it back on without a battery pull (and the looooooong paused which goes with that).
When it comes back, the battery reads very low.
Sometimes if the crash happens during a call you "hear" it will happen as the line goes very bad with distortion noise.
I've done nothing different in the last two weeks.
I upgraded the device to v188.8.131.52 about, hmm, 6 months ago without a hitch. Nothing new since then.
Yes apps go on and off but nothing new there.
Lots of free file space.
There is a 2G SD card in there (as it has done from day one) 5.8%used
This feels to me like a battery issue but why would it crash so spectularly. Could it be that the battery has aged so much?
