    Here's what I can say. It wasn't n app that caused the problem. It was OS related, core function. It did not "lock up" or "freeze". Everything else on the device worked. We spent about a minute trying to resolve the problem. Maybe if we kept trying we might have been successful but I was interested in seeing the boot time so I suggested the pull.

    I never understood this as well. My PlayBook has locked up many times and never recovered. A 3 finger restart was always needed to "revive" it.

    Maybe though this has not been fully optimized in the Playbook OS2.1, because it surely doesn't work the way I've read it should work. Here's to hoping the BB10 devices have that "feature" functional.

    Glad to hear that they didn't actually need a battery pull.

    Rather it was a case of "something didn't work right and since we were running pre-release software and also couldn't figure out how to make it work, we tried the time-honoured approach of rebooting but it's possible that wasn't really necessary." Just to be clear about it...

    If someone says "needed a battery pull", that pretty much means "froze hard," to my way of thinking.

    Yeah, the PB does take time to reboot.....longer than any other BB device. The 9810, has gotten better(quicker) reboots with the upgraded OS for me. Personally, I do like the option to BP. I haven't had many issues with my GSlll or my iPhone lV, but, it does happen.

    from the posters explaination on post #43, it sounds like it worked as intended, the app could have went non responsive, called a UI sequence incorrectly, anything... so it does sound to me like an app issue, core function or not theyre all still apps, native or 3rd party...
    it sounds like a bug in the UI code, if the program calls something non-existent or an empty file, etc it could look and feel like the phone is non-responsive.. you could literally program an app that would give the appearence of crashing your phone, with the different functions and the ability to control certain gestures, etc its entirely possible... the phone crashing, the micorkernel crashing, the phone just shutting off and dying, random reboots... THESE are real issues i would be worried about, none responsive UI is a symptom of bad programming as other posters have suggested

    I will probably do a battery pull on my Z10 weekly weather it needs it or not. I am just used to doing it with all of my other BB's. It does not bother me all that much. As long as I am not doing 10 battery pulls a day like I did on my original storm. Like others have stated a battery pull or an app crash is expected on ALL devices, no matter what they are. Excessive and it becomes a problem. On occasion, not so much

    Default Quick boot time in Z10

    did one yesterday on my 9860 when it froze. Have done it a few times on my 8520. Not a traumatic exercise.

    I carry a spare battery for the 9900 and swap them out all the time. I think that is what keeps it running so problem free. It has locked up a few times but just Like desktop a restart takes care of the problem. I am confident that is not going to be A big problem with bb10.

    & is it due to the OS not running the full code?

    The very nature of QNX should make it IMPOSSIBLE for an app crash to take down the OS. This is an OS that powers nuclear facilities.

    QNX is the core, the UI on top could crash and lock everything out, but the underlying functions remain active. While your phone wouldnt be "frozen" it would be fairly useless.

    qnx can and will crash especially since the ui/ux thats on it requires apps not native to run on it , any consumer electronics that requires user interface and input/output will crash at one time or the other, yes qnx as is runs in a lot of mission critical situations, that in itself doesnt mean it wont crash, it just means its rare and when it does there are system backups that will kick in, everything is susceptible to crashes,

    I think there is a big misconception on QNX and the differences between it and BB10. BB10 is not controlling power plants.

    I don't know how you know if what I was using was the full OS or not. Or that it will change on the 30th.

    As an aside, another thing I noticed that I didn't ike too much was after it booted up, it still took another 30 seconds or so for the hub to load. So maybe the quick boot time might be a bit misleading.

    That sounds like Windows 8. It boots faster, but it takes much longer after logging in for startup apps and such to be ready than Windows 7.
