    Hi guys,

    Got a problem with my UK Vodafone 9700.

    Woke up this morning - and it's on the loading screen (that you see after a battery pull) with the progress bar three quarters complete. It's not progressing. Tried removing the battery. Any ideas?

    Has been working perfectly for the last 2 months. Haven't changed anything.

    Very strange. Please help, not sure what else i can try!

    Will it respond if you hook it up to your computer via desktop manager?

    Same thing happened to me on new years eve. I'm with T-mob UK, gave them a call and they advised an FOC replacement with a new phone. I said that I'd rather have this one fixed but was told it wouldn't be possible. New phone is due tomorrow .

    I've tried all sorts with this phone since then (Desktop manager, battery drain, etc) but with no joy, just won't go past the 3 qtrs on the loading bar.

    I'm back on my old 9000.......I'd forgotten just how big and cluncky it is!!!!

    A simple wipe and OS reload should sort this problem

    There are several posts on how to do this... if you search

    You don't need to start it up

    You can wipe it with BBSAK or CrackMem, then reload the OS as described here... BlackBerry 101: How to Reload the Operating System on a Nuked BlackBerry | CrackBerry.com

    Stupid question here, but will reloading the OS mean losing all my personal data?

    Yup, but you can restore it from a previous backup file when you're done.

    Thanks Phil I would try this one but I wanted to try to keep all my apps & settings. If I'm going to have to take the time to re-load and re-set everything then I may as well do it with the new phone that T-mob are offering.

    Thanks again for your help.

    No probs Arch, and I don't blame you.

    I'd rather have a new phone, than an old one that just died on me

    If you have not made a back-up its a goner. For those reading this, make a back up now. You never know when it will save you big time

    How long did you wait; I once uinstalled couple of apps and did a reboot and it kind of stopped at 75%. I was almost about to do a battery pull and all and then decided just to put the phone in holster and wait;

    After 30 min, checked on the phone again, it was up and running; You can wait and see if it loads up (if you haven't done this already )

    Just this morning I installed a theme, then deleted it from my applications menu...and my 9700 froze on the loading screen at 100% load on the progress bar. Freaking out a little...I did a hard reset battery pull, and it froze again in the same place for an hour!

    I had resigned to taking my phone back to my local AT&T store and getting another replacement, when suddenly it came back to life and everything seems fine and dandy!

    Hope it stays that way...

    FYI this could not be fixed and was sent back to RIM today.

    When trying to reload the OS got this message.



    Basically it was not possible, tried pretty much everything.

    Dissapointed. All is lost.
