    What does security have to do with a poorly written app or a user installing an app not meant for their phone or OS?

    I've downloaded apps that ruined my phone making it laggy. Delete the app

    If she gets the message "uncaught exception..." after a reboot, she'll need to reload the OS if it remains laggy and it gets worse over time

    About the only app I ever had an issue with is Poynt. It seems that it likes to be opened in portrait mode to avoid freeze ups. Nope, a buggy app has nothing to do with security.

    Its only a white screen and if there are apps that do something like this doesnt that affect security? Maybe they should stop doing apps then not so?

    It doesn't sound like you understand what is meant by 'security'. A bad app crashing the device doesn't have anything to do with security. RIM doesn't screen apps for badly written code.

    Bad apps happen.

    Delete the app and move on.

    Can you give the name of that app.....just in case it's on my "to get" list.....thanks . In the future....if an app takes an unusually long time to download, it's probably not worth taking the risk. $4.99 vs $649.....?????

    Edit; with the exception of BBM

    A long time ago, I downloaded an app that bricked my Blackberry. Luckily, ATT took care of it and I then got the latest BB that was out at the time. It was a popular app and so, I'm thinking, maybe it just didn't click with see of the other apps I had on my phone.

    Maybe your friend can try spreading to a different rep? its worth a try.
