shmeek, i am replying to this advice: "I did find the solution, but no thanks to either RIM or VZW support. It is a problem with the phone selecting the correct service. If one goes to Options -> Mobile Network, the Network Technology needs to be changed from Global to GSM/UMTS, and then Mode needs to be changed to 2G. Seems it's not a problem with a newer OS."
I just landed in turkey, and in the first 3 hours here, my phone (blackberry tour)(verizon) has been resetting itself almost every three - four minutes.
thanks to your post which I found using a google search, I changed my network to the GSM/UMTS and then to 2G, and so far 5 minutes have gone by and it has not yet reset. If this doesn't work, I don't have a plan B, but would like to know what else I can do? My email is
if you have any advice.
THANKS for posting the advice you did already!
