Default WAP running script

What you're probably seeing is the browser and device getting overloaded and essentialy locking up.

Who is your provider? What OS? I use t-mobile on OS4 and the built in browser still uses the wap.voicestream.com connection. Anything that has scripts (most sites now-a-days) can be touch and go.

I also have Reqwireless and have had better success with using it for certain sites, E-Bay included.

If using your WAP browser can't view eBay, you have the option of using the Internet Browser. However, this is a service you have to add to your BlackBerry Internet Service account if you have one.
