Default my Bold crashed today....

Please Login to Remove!

here goes...

was getting "call failed" on over 50% of my outgoing calls so I pulled battery.

when it booted up, i got a blank screen with "App Error 205 Reset". clicked reset and the same thing happened for about 5 cycles.

finally booted up, and all the settings and profiles were screwed up, and i got like 12 "uncaught exception error" dialogue boxes. Pulled battery again, and back to normal, but many incoming calls failing, many outgoing calls failing and sporadic email and sms at best.

Rogers tech support got me to switch the the next gen sim card that came with the Bold and I'm in the process of reinstalling the OS software.

if anyone has any advice, I'd love to hear it.

You are doing the right thing now with the OS. Let us know what happens when you are done with that.

I think everyone should use the new sim card .after reading about other failures I chose to do that .also blackberry support at rogers is loaded with some duds .when I got mine tried to reg the new sim card ,he told everything was fine wait 20 min .went to bed with phone on and charging .next morning dead as a door nail ,called got a good tech 10 mins later up and runing . so beware

Re-install of 4.6 + new sim card seems to have worked (so far)

They say if it crashes again, it needs to be returned

Yes, ,you have to call them and give them the number on the sim card so they can activate it on your account.

I got this error messsage last night and was about to post a message also. I started getting Facebook messages so I deleted the application and it prompted me to restart the phone. When it came back on I kept getting this message. Finally it reset after 5 tries and didn't display this message. Wonder what this is?

Still having problems with the phone in 3g

50% of the outgoing calls report "call failed" and many incoming calls go straight to voicemail

I've set it to 2g for now and no problems

Any advice?

One thing to keep an eye on is your free memory. The two Bold OS versions I have tried so far (4.6.0.125 and 4.6.0.134) both have significant memory leaks although 4.6.0.134 got me a bit more free memory to start with. I lose about .5 MB/hour doing nothing. I lost over 9 MB in 1 hour doing a lot of web browsing (I cleared the cache, history and cookies just be sure my leak measurement was accurate).

If you don't watch the free memory, you could get low enough to cause problems pretty fast. When I got the Bold out of the box, it had 20MB free, 14MB less than my Pearl 8100!. After clearing out lots of useless sample media and unused language support (thanks John Clark!) I now start with 55MB on a soft reset and leak downward from there.

Best regards,

Carl

After day one with my Bold, I have had the app error once. I had to pull the battery and since it has been fine. I am however beginning to get nervous that I have a Rogers Bold on AT+T. Hence no warranty/support.
