Massive problems with the blackberry playbook
Hey guys i just got my brand new 32gb blackberry playbook a few days ago and was expecting a lovely smooth os to accompany it BOY WAAS I WRONG!! for the most part it is good and smooth but sometimes apps will just randomly close or not open at all and i found out thats because other certain apps are open (for example facebook would not open since the browser was open and when i closed the browser facebook opened) also one of the most annoying things is that sometimes the flash player will not work and will not load my videos instead it will just show a white screen with a "i" in the middle of it since i bought the playbook mainly for flash this has to be my BIGGEST GRIPE with it and its very dissapointing. also sometimes when i try and play a recorded video it keeps on saying an error has occured i really dont understand where theese problems are coming from and i am so angry that i have spent over 400 pounds on a devices that lets me down most of the time please if you guys can help me in any way it would be greatly apprciated. I love my playbook and the hard is very mind blowing but the software lets it down please help me!!!!

I'd take it back mate, £400! you can get the 32gb for £200 atm from carphone ware house.
sounds like you are having some issues, did you get it retail or from ebay? mine has been flawless other then one freeze while playing tetris

HAPPY NEW YEAR
It would be useful to be very specific about cause and effect. I have a new Playbook and it has been almost perfect in every sense. (The only problem was the need to reboot the BB and the Playbook when the Bridge was installed ... otherwise BBM doesnt work)
I cannot generate any of your sysmptoms here

What webpages or page is giving you issues?
I can also say I have experienced none of these issues. I have however had an app or apps close when i had many things open and running at the same time. I expect that though as it is part of the SW that helps control processor bandwidth.
no i bought mine from carphone warehouse as well but this was before the sale and i cant go in to more detail then i already have the main problem is the flash player is there no one that is having the problem???

What good is a highly portable internet device that in many cases can't be used for internet access once you leave home?
Even at home if you push big media files etc around your network between other devices, giving up the N protocol for B or G to accommodate your Playbook will seriously suck.

While the wifi thing doesn't affect most RIM does need to do something about it. OP if it were me since you seem to be having so much trouble and if you don't have much on it I would do a debrick and if that didn't help I'd call RIM.

NO MANUAL - WHY?
I finally got the 32 GB PB
I was so exited until I opened the package.
Nice black box nice PB but obsoletely no instructions.
What a bummer! What is RIM thinking of?
After hour and a half trying to sign in to BB for an account - got the error >
Sigh in Failed
Unknown server error (30641)
Should I just return this thing
And an other ting the creating an account here is = nuts!

Does this mean the apps closing or the system turning off?
If it's any of them it may be a problem with your OS,here's what you can try:
-Tap the Settings Cog at the very top right of your tablet screen,go to security
-Do a Security Wipe(Deletes all files),if you have anything you want to backup,connect your tablet to a computer with The latest version of Desktop Software and do a backup of your files
-It will reset your Tablet to when you first opened it(kind of,OS is only under 100MB) and you will set it up
-Connect your tablet back to your computer and put all your files back
Tell me if it worked,thanks

Sounds like some of you need to help yourself and call RIM for support to see if it is a hardware problem or not but since that is too difficult to do or there is some other reason why you wouldn't want to.
Help yourself and call RIM.
