Exclamation Error Code 506 BB7280

Please Login to Remove!

For the 2nd time, my BB7280 has experienced the JVM Error Code 506 which basically locks up the entire unit. I am using OS 4.0. The only way I have found to fix it is to completely re-install all the OS and add in's and start from scratch including resyncing from my outlook which does take some time. If this happens while I'm in the field I am SOL for e-mail and phone. Anyone else have this issue and what causes it?

Default 506 Meaning

The Error 506 Reference:

506 - Uncaught Exception

An uncaught Java exception was thrown in the initial VM Java thread thus ending the only live thread in the system.
The eventlog contains the traceback for the exception.

For the true meaning for you if this occurs again you should contact RIM so they can determine the root cause...

Other than backing up the device and intellisyncing the device there really is no other way to restore it, unless you have a BES that has WirelessSync enabled for you.

Hope that helps.
