You know, I have had that happen when I had a pearl (one of the main reasons I went back to my 8700.) I notice that if it was a big webpage to view or had a lot of junk on the page, the pearl would take an exorbitant if not endless amount of time to try and process the page. I would end up having to do a reset on my phone as well to have anything up and running again. I seriously hope that this is just an early edition 8800 bug that can be fixed through newer shipments. Good luck and let us know if you have figured anything out with your phone to prevent this annoying matter.
I've been having the same problem, but it's only with the bb browser. T-zones WAP browser works fine but I don't like the mobile versions of popular pages (bbc, yahoo, etc.) How can we remedy this constant freezing??
