Phone hangs on startup
New AT&T 8900 won't startup. Just hangs at white screen with little black clock spinning.
Only a few 3rd party apps on the device, mostly Google Mobile Apps. No themes or anything.
Pulled battery many times.
Any other way to force a reset?

I've let it start for a long time - 20 minutes or so. Plugged in and not plugged in. No luck.
Thanks for the suggestions, if I can't even get it to start, how do I reload the OS? (I will go read the article now )

well, this is weird.
went thru the procedure and got the phone back to factory fresh.
first app i tried to install was BB Messenger 5.0. Told the phone to reboot, it never came back! Dead again.
Reloading again now, I will be leaving off BBM 5.0 for sure. :s

You might need to get a new device... it should work with BBM 5.0.
