That's pretty quick for a BlackBerry.
I wouldn't worry too much about it. Without going into too much detail... there's lots that's going on in the background during bootup.

So ask the OP directly in a PM. Don't hijack the thread, which it appears is not a bad boot time anyway.

Just for comparison - on a T-Mobile 8800, with fewer applications loaded, it just took 1:45 to go from putting the battery in, to ready to put in the password. I'd say your wait was about right.

Folks need to realize that these little beasties are more than just a phone. Boot-up does a lot of stuff.

They must also realize that a Blackberry is not running off a dual core Intel Processor.

It has likely been the same all the time. It does take a while
