It is not supposed to occur in a Normal Phone. You should try formatting the Phone (Don't forget to make a Back-Up Copy of the Data in your Phone before).

My blackberry phone keeps freezing up and the hourglass keeps showing up

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

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.

Freezing Blackberry

have you removed the battery and put it back in.
his will reboot the software.
also make sure your battery is up to par, the battery in a blackberry when they get used for a while need to be changed, your phone is very graphic intensive and needs a very good battery to run without problems. replace the battery and see what happens.
