Sounds like you have a curropt application. Wipe the Device from the settings menu.

This will bring the device to standard settings.

Hope this helps,

Blackberry got damp and noe wont turn on

Remove the battery. Put the phone somewhere very dry for 24 hours... I have used an electric plate warmer with a empty glass on it and the phone set across the top of the glass. Keep it below about 160 degrees. Then let it cool, replace the battery and see if it works. If not it's probably toast.

My blackberry 9530 keep restarting its self

I recommend you try get contact someone who has the same model phone as you and borrow the battery and see if it still restarts. If it works fine just replace your battery. Just basically do a battery test because sometimes when the blackberries keep restarting it is because the battery is basically done.

My altell blackberry flip keeps freezeing up

See how much memory you have left. If you have a blackberry the first thing you want to invest in is an SD card and good memory management is your best friend. Otherwise, since the working memory and the storage is the same general pool of memory, the device can run very slowly or lockup entirely if you have too many active applications running.

I keep gettin an hourglass icon on my phone

Hello have found your manual.But nothing on the hour glass in it.

Have read round various sites,and it seems to be a problem caused by memory,phone heat,speed, and nobody seems to solve it.

Best thing is to google "hour glass backberry" and read in the forums. The best reply i found was to remove battery for 1 minute then put it back.

It looks as though nobody has got a solution.

I have my yahoo email set up on my phone and would like to remove this option because I'm constantly getting messages and it seems to be causing my blackberry to run slow. The hour glass keeps coming on. I...

Disabling your Yahoo email to the Blackberry won't solve your slowdown issues. The Blackberry is the preferred way to receive emails from a mobile device. You could have several different email accounts set up (i.e. gmail, hotmail, yahoo, ect.) and it wouldn't impact your performance. RIM is most known for their ease of set up and ability to forward / read email from a mobile. Check for other issues regarding slow down such as other processes running, slow network connection, ect.
