What third party apps do you have loaded?

How much free memory does the device have when it is "freezing"?

What do you do to solve the freeze issue?

Have you searched around in this area of the forum for others with the same or similar issue? >> General 8500 Series Discussion - Gemini - BlackBerryForums.com : Your Number One BlackBerry Community

Try updating the handheld OS version (sticky at the top of the 8500 forum) to the latest available version, 5.0.0.1385/5.0.0.822 and see if that fixes it. Run it for a while with only the stock apps, then add your aftermarket apps back one at a time.
