This can sometimes happen to blackberries. and there is not easy fix. there are applications for the blackberry that you just click on to do a soft reset. this program was created because of this issue. if this does seem to help and you don't want to keep resetting your phone, you might this about doing a wipe and starting from scratch. you might have downloaded a program that just is not working properly...good luck

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

My curve keeps freezing on me. I took it to verizon and they said to take the battery out and it will stop. Well, as soon as I put it back it....the hourglass just spins and spins....and it usually takes...


Mine does too. Or it just reboots for no good reason. Very frustrating as this is a relatively new problem for me. I just downloaded the most recent software upgrade. Don't know if it will help but will monitor this posting to see if anyone has some solutions.

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.

Scroll to select the OPTIONS icon 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.

The hourglass on my blackberry pearl stays on..phone won't boot


I would download the latest Blackberry OS from Blackberry.com and install it via the Desktop Manager. You can get the latest OS from this URL:
https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code=577BCC914F9E55D5E4E4F82F9F00E7D4

You can find the model by removing the battery and it should be on a sticker.

Try removing your Facebook app from the phone. Had the same issue and I stopped receiving emails. Once I removed the Facebook app from the phone - it rebooted and all my emails showed up.
