    I purchased a Blackberry 8830 from Sprint a little over a week ago. It is currently running version which according to Sprint is the latest they provide. I have already exchanged this device once. This is my second one that is having the same behavior.

    About once a day the network "locks up" and no Internet data is allowed to be passed. (I have not tested if the phone portion works.) If I do a soft power off or turn the Mobile off then back on via Wireless settings only the voice service comes back. In order to get data to come back I need to turn the device off and remove the battery. Once I put the battery back in everything works normally.

    This occurs no matter what wireless signal strength I have. The only thing I can think of is that one of my 3rd party applications is causing this. Since on the weekends when the Blackberry pretty much does nothing but email I do not have this problem. If I am not using an application I quit out of it though. The applications I use the most frequently is IM+ v5.0.9, gmail (latest version), Google Maps (latest version), and jmirc (latest version).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Constantly having to do a constant battery pull is tiring.

    I'm having the same issue but I have to do a battery pull even more often, 3 or more times a day. I have Verizon though and I'm hoping it's not just attributable to their subpar network down here in New Orleans.

    Anyone have a way to fix this?

    I have a Verizon, and this has never affected my network.

    I bought an Alltel 8830 yesterday and am having this same problem. I've had to pull the battery twice today because of data lock ups.

    I have the same problem. Mini Opera would lock up after a few uses. BB internet browser will slow to crawl if I don't clean the Cache once a day.

    I have Verizon and have pulled the battery maybe 3 times in 2 months. Mainly I was calling out and got a call in and tried to answer and lock up. Otherwise it has been pretty good. Damn thing gets better reception than my laptop.
