    Hi everyone,

    Not sure if anyone else is having issues with their new BB Curve on VZW, but just recently (the phone is only 3 days old), the phone would freeze when trying to unlock the keys. It would either freeze, prompting a battery removal, or it would take a LONG time to get back on track.

    Is anyone else experiencing this?

    (and yes, i'm a BB newb..can't believe i waited this long)

    I have my first BB, too. I don't have the key lock activated (not sure how to do that yet), but I will say that I have seen the hour glass a few times -- such as after installing GridMagic -- and the hour glass would last for several minutes at a time. I honestly thought my phone was dying.

    It just seems that these Curves take a while to process commands.

    Maybe the upcoming OS upgrade will fix this problem?

    I have been using the key lock on mine, and haven't noticed any problems. I have had the phone since friday.

    Hopefully you get a fix for the problem

    Haven't had problems with mine.

    Sometimes it lags a little though when I take it out of the pouch but then it fixes itself.

    It take a while for the os to unlock on my phone too.
