Default Phone suddenly stopped

Please Login to Remove!

Today, for no apparent reason, my phone suddenly stopped working. Could not make or receive calls. I was going to invoke the standard remedy -- a batter pull -- but decided to simply turn the phone off and on again. And that worked. But some questions: Does this happen often? Why does it happen? Does it signal problems with the unit? Thanks.

Did a lot of reading here this morning and, apparently, when you uninstall an application -- I uninstalled Beyond411 -- it can sometimes cause erratic behavior in the device. That might have accounted for my phone not working temporarily. There seems to be no consensus about the best way to remove an app -- device "delete" or through DTM. If one of the experts could weigh in, that would help.
