Arrow Curve 8900 cannot show the screen

Please Login to Remove!

Today my curve 8900 was going quite slow (as it sometimes does) and so I did a battery pull. Once I'd put the battery back in, it was turning back on.

First, there's the white screen with the timer in the middle. Then, there's just a white screen. Then, there's the black screen with the Orange logo in the middle. This is all normal. But that's all that happens!

It won't pass the Orange logo screen. I've tried several battery pulls since.

The phone is still vibrating when I receive a text (and e-mails which happened when I signed up for this forum just now) and the red light flashes when I do.... but why won't the screen show me my home screen?

Advice please !

Do a full backup of the phone and reinstall the device software. If you don't want to lose all your apps back them up using BBSAK. That's the best advice I can give you.
