Default Blackberry keeps freezing? HELP!!

Please Login to Remove!

Hello All,

I still have about 95 mb of space in the memory but every now and then the BB keeps freezing momentarily. What could be wrong? I'm worried.

Did you install a new app recently? If so, remove it and then do a battery pull. This happened to me when I tried the Salesforce Mobile App - doesn't work with 5.x and I was forced into an endless loop of reboots.

Good luck. Let us know if you get it resolved.

Mine does this too, I can barely use my phone because it's always thinking.

Mine does the same, with only four apps installed and 11 mb free!
-weather eye
-google maps
-gmail
-bolt 1.7

Phone has done it from new, wiped it clean and reinstalled operating system and still the same. I will wait for an upgrade from Telus and see what happens, it will go back soon if that does not fix it.

11MB free? I have weather eye, weather bug, XE, Poynt and I have 131 MB free...mine only started freezing with this new OS. Also has an intermittent issue where data stops working even though it shows 3G, and I have to turn the radio off and on to make it start working, but that's been the same through every OS, even after a wipe.

.656 and I bet it has to do with this release...when I downgrade to .593, the freezing goes away and when I go back to .656...it comes back. The radio issue has been there since day 1 no matter what version, but the freezing is new to .656 for me.

I am on platform 5.1.0.121 v 5.0.0.442
upgraded from the version before this and has had the same problems with both. Did a wipe with this latest but same thing. I may wait for the next supported version to be released. I have issues but they are minor in nature.
