W&R? Warranty/Repair? If so it doesn't cover a slow device and errors... Try doing a fresh reload of your OS.

Missed that shorthand. What does W&R mean?

if you mean a complete handheld wipe of all info and returning the BB to its original state then what you need to do is :

go to options ---> security settings---> general settings ---> click the trackwheel ---> click on Wipe Handheld . woo-hoo ! all done .

BTW, this option that was stated earlier resets user data, not system state. i did this and previously installed apps were still there. this fixed my bb anyway but is a nice easy way to fix said problems.

Yes - there are two ways to reset a BB; "Wipe BlackBerry" just wipes our customer data. A program called Javaloader (used in JL_CMDR) - available on this forum - completely wipes out all data, applications and the underlying OS.

here's a dumb question : but why would anyone want to remove the OS of a BB ? wouldn't that kinda make it unusable ? and if you lost apps you paid for ? would that help anything else work ? just wondering ?

Well, in literally hundreds of threads people have talked about how they now get JVM (Java) errors, and their BB is crashing. Best way to fix it? Wipe out and reload the OS.

If you lost apps you paid for? Reload them!

Would it make it unusable (wiping it out)? Well, uh, yes. But the next steps are to reload the OS and you applications.
