    I am using a Blackberry Torch.

    Just this morning I downloaded a free chess game from Application World called Free Chess. The program was working very well, but it was also flashing some advertizing banners at the top of the screen.

    After I exited from the program, I noticed the bridge mode to my Playbook no longer worked. Also, the Bluetooth would no longer work.

    I went through all the setting I possibly can. I also checked that the bluetooth serial interface was turned off for the initialization process of the Bridge program that is running on the Torch.

    I called Blackberry tech support after I ran out of ideas. The tech support engineer had me go through many settings and try different approaches. In the end we had to wipe out the Torch and re-load the complete operating system from scratch to make it work. I am fortunate that I keep current backups of my phones.

    I reported the Free Chess program to them to investigate this issue. Apparently, they are suspect that this software may be the cause of the fault I experienced.

    Wouldn't a battery pull and removing the software (and another battery pull) solved it?
    I haven't had this with any of my apps. Weird.

    I'm glad it all turned out well. Any other people here with the same issues? Would love to hear more about this.
