    Hello,

    I got my bold like 5 days ago and since day 2 or 3 it keeps restarting by itself like 2-3 times a day.
    Any idea ?
    thanks.

    First try would be the mem card. Try taking it out and see if the prob still happens. My curve did that due to a faulty card. Hope its a simple fix for you.

    When you are done with an app, are you using the menu button and selecting close?

    Which firmware are you running? Because I've heard of Blackberries running 4.6.0.126 and .162 that have the same problem as you describe.

    yes, otherwise your apps can continue to use resources forcing a possible restart. This could also be an issue with 216.

    I've noticed the same problem on my Bold. I'm running v4.6.0.216 (Platform 4.0.0.183). It's frustrating.

    just try to upgrade your OS to 237 or downgrade it to 210

    that's everyone's favorite

    i had a few resets on .216 but not as frequently as described
    i thought .216 was pretty stable IMO

    before we jump onto the upgrade bandwagon, what are the apps you guys got on your device?

    I've got the following apps on my Bold: Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, Facebook, Twitterberry, Worldmate Live, Vlingo, Viigo, Youversion Bible Reader & Google Maps. Pretty basic stuff I suppose.

    ok are u closing your apps properly?
    press alt + escape (the button to the right of trackball)
    u should see a list of open apps

    this list is the app switcher and there should be 5 default apps that will always be open - home, phone, messages, bbm and browser

    you should close off the rest
    facebook and viigo especially.
    they hog up a lot of memory

    Thanks for tip danielx. I know the drill well I'd just like to (with the help of fellow Crackberry users) determine the main cause of the device periodically resetting itself. Is this indeed an OS issue? Thanks again.

    What OS are you currently running. I know there were periodic resets on some of the "older" OS's that were cleared up with an OS upgrade.

    i am having the same problem.

    my os is: 4.6.0.237

    i have tapped the back to check if its a loose battery, even shaken it within reason. nothing. i set it down on the table, look away, look back and it reboots.

    only apps i have added are: beejive IM, twitterberry and gmail.

    this is amazingly frustrating. i have an imported european model set up to work on my tmobile account here. i don't think i can exchange the hardware, so i am praying it is a software issue.


    any thoughts?

    so i wiped the phone via the internal command.

    i has no data in it, but the firmware did remain at .237 i didn't even connect it to my company's enterprise server.

    i've downloaded no apps, i've installed no apps. the ONLY change i've made to the phone is to the APN address. i changed it from, "internet.t-mobile.com" to "wap.voicestream.com" and of course removed the user and password.

    its reset 3 time already, making me think its not a data incoming/outgoing issue. that it might be pure firmware or hardware. any ideas anyone? i don't know what other tests i can do. its an imported phone from overseas, i don't know if i could replace it. not in a timely manner anyway.
