I am on Bell Mobility, and have an 8703e... every time I restart my device, two things happen:
1. I get the following error: Uncaught exception: java.lang.IllegalStateException
2. My Internet Browser no longer works.
The workaround I've been using is to wipe out my service books, yank the battery, then register the device on the network again. Huge pain. I've tried wiping every app off the device except those that came with it, reloaded the OS. Still happens.
Does this happen to anyone else, or anyone have an idea what's causing it? Is the device just defective?
Personally, I would wipe the BB using JL_Cmdr and do a fresh OS download straight off Bell's site of the most current OS, and then go to RIM's site and download/install Desktop Manager v4.2. Install Desktop Manager first, then the OS.
If on re-start your 8703e still shows that error message I would take the phone back and ask for a replacement.
i have that all the time - my issue was one of the service books rogers sends when you activate the BIS... i cant remember which one, whether it was yahoo! or one of those. Delete one by one on the handheld, and reset - when you get the right one the browser icon will return and the error will cease!
my office? 9700 tethered to my MBAir
spoke too soon - i restored my device after i wiped it (i needed to get ahold of an email i had) and voila, back to the same error. I'll try deleting the service books u mentioned, and see which one is the culprit...
