    I love my Blackberry Bold. Well, when it works.

    I had a bad case of the random resets when I first got it. Updated the OS, and the resets became rare.

    Then I got a random error code and had to reformat. No big deal, I can live with that.

    That was in May. Everthing was fine, until I updated the OS on Father's Day.

    -why can I not change the browser's home page? No big deal, just annoying.

    -why does the internet browser go SLOW?

    -why does the phone frequently freeze?

    -I am scared to surf the internet now. The browser sometimes freezes, and I have to pull the battery

    -why is my expensive phone now completely unreliable? It resets and turns off at the worst times when I am expecting very important calls.

    -three times now the screen has turned completely fuzzy and black, forcing me to pull the battery

    I do not want an iPhone. I want this phone to work like it used to! Anyone else have similar problems? I am getting extremely fed up with its problems, especially considering how much I paid for it. I can't wait for my 2 year contract with ATT to expire so that I can try another brand smart phone.

    Sounds like you need to upgrade to .266 or .282

    Is that an officially released version?

    Perhaps when I used third party software to reformat the Bold in May I installed a non-reseting, non-freezing version. Then on Father's Day, when Blackberry Manager said there was an update available, it actually downgraded?

    I'm getting too old I don't remember which OS version I had installed in May.

    Hmm...not sure what happened with your previous OS but .282 has been officially released by another carrier, Rogers.

    Here is the thread with the download link.
