Hard rest, pull the battery and re-seat. If that doesn't work try reloading your OS. Seach javaloader.exe or javaloader or see d_fisher signature.

you know ive had the same issue.... I had a 7105T and when i would take the battery out... or turn it off... and take the sim out or anything taking the battery out... it would take a good 30-40mins for it to re-boot up... then i get a sim-card error.... i went to tmobile... they checked it out.. sent me a new one.. today i got my new one... updated to 4.1 rsync my stuff.... and it still does it.. but does not take 30-40mins to boot.. maybe 4-5mins at the most. and ALSO my bluetooth wont work :(

Did you install anything extra (themes, ringtones, etc) on the BlackBerry other than the OS? Remove any extra software and see if the issues continue. Also, after upgrading the OS it is normal to take a long time to boot up. It you remove the battery after that is should take just a minute or two at most.

Remember, please try searching first!

Need a screenshot? ... Like JavaLoader?
Try using BBscreen .....Use JL_Cmder!
or BBScreenShooter!
