Arrow blackberry reboots when ever it wants

Please Login to Remove!

The problem is the phone COMPLETELY REBOOTS ITSELF(the hourglass spinning and taking a minute or so to restart) This happens while you are texting, playing a game, or even when we were trying to delete our contacts. i dropped the phone last week on concert and thats when i started having the problem. I have dropped the phone in water before but that was months agoand it worked fine after it dryed. I tryed pulling out the battery, and resting the software, yet the same problem persist? any suggestions?
Or no of a place that can fix my blackberry?

To be honest,i think you've probably put that curve through all of its available lives...water,concrete....they're not bulletproof you know:P Get a bold already!

Software could be corrupted. Try a battery pull? Not needed.

Try to wipe it JL_Cmder (How do I wipe the BlackBerry using Jl Cmder? - BlackBerryFAQ) and fresh-install the latest OS for your Curve.

Also try to contact HorizonWirelessOnline.com and see if it really needs to be repaired.

If you don't wanna go that route, getting a Bold would work wonders!

Sounds like he has already done the OS reload,didn't work.

I think in the longrun,it would be more worth your money to just upgrade because repairs for a BB can get scary in price.

Unless of course you have some sort of sentimental tie to that BB.

...if you've got insurance on it, just bring it in and get a new one.
