I've tried battery pulls but when i turn the bold back on i keep getting the loading clock. The only apps i have on it are facebook, jive and googlemaps. Anyone have any possible solutions? I'll even hard reset it (anyone know how to do that?), because it is that annoying.
I would say backup and restore the OS, it's probably the best solution. A hard reset is pulling the battery out, which you have tried quite a few times. Soft reset is hitting ALT+Shift+Delete.
