Try a firmware update on your blackberry. I do not know which country you are in which service provider you are with so please check carefully when going through step 2.

Check below steps for OS upgrade -

Step #1

Users can perform a full or selective backup of the data using the Backup and Restore tool in BlackBerry Desktop Manager by completing the following steps:

  1. Connect the BlackBerry device to the computer running BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
  2. Open BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
  3. Double-click Backup and Restore.
  4. Select Backup to perform a full backup or select Advanced to perform a backup of specific databases.
  5. Choose a location to save the backup file, then click Save.
Step#4
To perform a clean install of the BlackBerry Device Software, perform the following steps:
  1. Connect the BlackBerry smartphone to the computer and open BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
  2. Double-click the Application Loader icon.
  3. Click Next to start the installation process.
  4. Type your BlackBerry smartphone password, if prompted, and click OK.

Hi , i bought a curve 8520 3 weeks ago and it has been brill ,however last night the screen went white wiv the hourglass..i hav took the battery out for several hrs..and then replaced it...and my phone...


Hi,
The BlackBerry has the feature on auto-start. When you insert the Battery, the device will automatically boot-up. It'll be showing an hour glass while loading the settings. But if it is longing for more than 10 minutes, there might be some error in the OS. It's better to contact a near-by authorised Service Center.

Regards
Vineeth K.

I keep gettin an hourglass icon on my phone


http://www.retrevo.com/s/RIM-8830-Cell-Phones-review-manual/id/3066ci963/t/1-2/

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.

Sorry.

If the flipping hourglass stays for longer than 2 min our Blackberry may just need a firmware restore. Here's a guide on how to restore the blackberry firmware, the website is at : Restore Blackberry to factory settings.Download the Blackberry Desktop manager and run the application loader.

Blackberry flip pearl constantly reboots.


I've had the same problem, particularly after upgrading the OS. I've been able to keep it reboot free for 24 hours after resending the service books from the bberry portal (and I'm even using it unlocked from T-Mobile on AT&T).

Blackberry curve won't turn on...


Wipe it to start over. Sometimes when you change or add something like a THEME or a download it HOSES the BB completely. So delete what was on there and don't download a theme or any other wacky add-on.

To Sanitize or Clear out all the information in a Blackberry Device
Scroll to select the OPTIONS icon and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select SECURITY and press [Trackwheel] to select.
On some units you may have to select GENERAL SETTINGS before getting the next menu.
Press [Trackwheel] again to access the Menu screen for the security.
Scroll to select the WIPE HANDHELD and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll UP to select CONTINUE and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Type blackberry on keyboard to confirm the action press <-| key.
System responds with ERASING INFORMATION.
