Does your colleague have the exact same device as yours?

What OS are you running might be worth to update the software. You can find the latest OS in the 89xx forum.

Have you tried a battery pull?

Wireless is a fun animal.

Blackberry will not connect to a server but it will connect to a ROUTER that's attached to the server. Chances are that you are simply too far away form the router and cant pick up a signal.

Could be either or did you try updating your OS?
