Default Sprint 8703e keeps freezing

Please Login to Remove!

Is anyone else experiencing this? It doesn't completely crash, but when receiving e-mails or IMs or other basic data attributes, it tends to freeze for 7-10 seconds. This happens a few times a day.

I imagine that there are people who receive many more IMs and e-mails then I ever could, so I'm wondering what is going on? My 7100i rarely did this, but then again I am pushing more e-mail accounts through this phone.

Did you recently install any apps or recently upgraded the OS? I only ask because BB are pretty rock solid OS wise... If not, then have to tried a hard reboot (pull battery for 30 sec)

try a wipe of the OS too, is it possible that the handheld it seeking the network and it is just "thinking", how many emails is it having to load at once?

I installed google maps a few days ago, but that was the same day that I received the phone. I don't really know where to go to upgrade the OS. I checked out handango, but the 8703e wasn't listed as a choice.

I was having an IM conversation with a client via the BB last night and the phone was freezing and experiencing hiccups that made it seem as if the information was way too much to handle. It never shut down and the hour glass never appeared, but something as simple as trying to scroll just made it worse because once it came back to, it would scroll and attempt to catch up to the processes that were occurring - making it go crazy. I would guess that she sent about 10 IMs over a course of 5 minutes and I sent about the same.

MY SPRINT 8703 IS ROCKSOLID.

bUT I did notice today on a flight i forgot to shut off the radio, prior to that i noticed it was slow and sluggish.

I shut off the radio and it was just as quick as ever.
