Default curve 8520 frozen

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, can someone please help me out, i have a curve 8520 which i bought beginning of the year and it keeps freezing, sometimes i can even take calls because all the buttons freeze, when i type emails or sms's it deletes them word for word, i cant use the phone at all, i have upgraded it twice already this week, it will work properly for a day then it goes back to acting up, how do i stop this? its really frustrating.

Regards,

Phindu

Step 1 - Pull the battery with the device on and place back.

Did it recently get wet (or even damp)?

Default re: curve 8520 frozen

I had the same issue with mine.

I installed a memory cleaning app called memory booster, although using options > security > memory cleaning might do the same thing.

Seems to have helped.
