Blackberry keeps turning off and freezing

I have a blackberry 8700. It shuts off then restarts itself. And also the screen freezes and have to remove the battery to get it up and running again. I have a Blackberry Curve and it keeps turning off and freezing as well. I have removed the battery, replaced it and that turns the phone back on. It shows a full charge but will not let me see my text messages, listen to messages or go anywhere on the phone..........This phone is only 4 to 6 months old at that.......Please help I have had no phone all day

    Soooooo frustrated with this phone.....less than 6 months old and it shuts off, freezes, drops calls all the time, and everyone is complaining they cannot hear me. I can hear fine but they say that my voice is super quiet and muffled.......So ready to just chuck it thru the window at Verizon!!!!

    I have the 8310. I am having the same issue unless I plug it in. While plugged in, it doesn't have this problem. Who wants a corded cell phone though? But I'm wondering, is it the phone or the battery that is causing the problem?

Hi,

Sounds like the device need the lastest firware "device Software" installed. You can do that from the Desktop Manager.

Download the latest "Device" software from www.blackberry.com

Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

Thanks.

SOURCE: GSM wont turn back to EDGE on my Blackberry Curve

Go to "manage connections". Choose "mobile network options" and change the network selection mode to manual. The phone will search for a minute then show a list of available networks. You should be able to select Edge from there.

Try this method it works

When your device fails to start, it show one of these symptoms:

1. Totally dead.

2. Trying to restart, LED activity only.

3. Failed to start, a white screen with an error message.

__________________________________________________ ________

1. Physical damage, water is the worst enemy of delicate electronic device. Try drying it with a desiccant and replacing the battery. If there is no activity, you can still try the last ditch technique, nothing to loose anyway.

2. Your device is not able to start, something has gone wrong and the OS is corrupt.


3. Geeks call this an "Uncaught exception error". That is a polite way of saying, the last thread has terminated, the OS has halted because it is corrupt.

In many cases, the Application Loader can be used from Desktop Manager or Windows,

If that fails to connect, there is one final solution. Go Old Skool ...

The good news, starting from scratch, you will be back in service in a couple of hours. biggrin.gif


2. You need to install a BlackBerry OS file that is specific to your device. The original version, as supplied by the carrier, is the safe choice, but you can use any model specific version.

3. Once the OS has been installed, you have to prepare it for the device.

Select Start / Computer and select the Drive C: Icon.

Open Program Files / Common Files / Research in Motion / AppLoader.

Navigate to the bottom and delete the file Vendor.XML file.

4. You are now ready to restore your device. Verify that BlackBerry Desktop Manager is NOT running. Plug the device directly into the computer's USB port.

Xps 420 keeps freezing or going to blue screen


Same with my Dell Vostro 420. At this rate I will just buy a new PC as I am wasting too much time on this. We tried usual stuff like cleaning inside, making cooler, removing certain virus software, still no luck. I have to restart 4 times a day and keep saving material. Can only restart by turning it off by pulling out power socket.
