Welcome - have you tried removing the battery for 10 seconds and then putting it back is?

I'm sorry - it is the FIRST thing you try to do when there is a problem with the BlackBerry.

Since you know NOTHING about anything related to the BlackBerry, why did you reply?

Your ignorance is showing yet again. Goodbye.

If it's the first thing to do which it is, then why did you even mention it? It's the first thing anyone does, before he comes for help. Duh.

Kumite, I don't see how your response in this thread is anything more than thread-crapping.

The user DID NOT stated he has done a reboot.

While you have some free time, go read this link, and if you feel you can do better as a "first thing to do" action, please write 'er up and submit to me.

I dont think i can do better, sir.
But they say that removing the battery whilst your device is on, isnt good.

"They" do?

Then go argue with "they".

RIM knows better than "they".

Kumite, you don't know what you are talking about. Removing the battery from a BlackBerry with the device turned on is THE WAY to reset it.

RIM specifically recommends this procedure. These guys posting in this thread know a million times more about the BlackBerry device than you do.

Stand down.

Wrong answer.

That is the FIRST thing that any carrier and RIM will tell you to do when your device is having a problem.

Back on topic - I have the same issue, been happening for months. More annoying, sometimes the phone will keep vibrating after I take the call.

So based on the information above, what troubleshooting steps have you taken?

The usual - three-finger salute, battery pull. I don't know what the cause is, but I know those aren't the solutions.

Have you upgraded the firmware on your BB?
According to your profile, you have an 8330m with older firmware.

The latest released firmware can be found here - http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...d-devices.html

This happens to me also. I always thought it was just my device being slow and laggy when calls come in. Doesn't seem like a big deal to me.
