    I've decided to post this here and not in the Bold section because ive had crazy long reboot times with every BB I've owned (Storm, 2 Storm2s and now my Bold 9650). The storm was the worst, but my Bold (running the latest vzw OS6) has a standard reboot time of about 7 or 8 minutes. (and ive been told that it is NOT normal).

    So, I made a list of my apps and stuff to see if maybe you guys know if one of them is causing the problem, or of I just have too much installed for the BB to handle... Even though my Bolds performance isn't that bad.

    But other than the basics apps already installed (browser, bbm, calendar, docs to go, brick breaker, etc etc) the apps I've downloaded are:


    Facebook
    Twitter
    Google maps
    Poynt
    Skype
    BB travel
    BB traffic
    Photobucket mobile
    Pandora
    ScanLife
    YouTube
    Score Mobile
    Urbanspoon
    Dictionary.com
    Starbucks card mobile
    Versatool
    Geodelic

    ControlBBPanel
    BB protect
    Vlingo
    CaptureIT
    Leave it on
    BeBuzz


    I also usually have about 5-6 themes installed on my device.


    Edit:
    Basically, the reboot goes smoothly until I get to about here:


    It stops there for at least a couple of minutes before inching along to the end.
    Then I'm stuck on the verizon wireless loading screen for a little while also...

    That doesn't look right. It should be smooth until it gets under the "e" I've seen it with 3 people.

    Mine takes about 4-5 minutes.

    Mines generally around 5-6 minutes. Have to tried a complete wipe and reload to see if that speeds up ur times?

    I just updated the OS... (I usually don't like messing around with wiping and reloading). Also, if its only gonna cut a minute or two, its not worth it to possibly loose some stuff in the process.

    Thanks for the posts though

    My 9630 takes about 10 minutes for a reboot. I don't have half the apps the OP has. It's pretty damn annoying.

    5-10 Minutes??? Ooohhhh, I guess I'm lucky, then My Bold 9780 takes about 2-3 Minutes.
    It was horrible with OS 4.6 but since OS 5 Reboots have always been faster for me.

    Could that be because of the faster processor in the 9780?

    Also, looks like I'm not alone with having a long reboot time when it comes to the 96XX devices.

    SKFreak is wrong because 9780 doesn't have 5.0.

    Barely faster. I remember two of the 9650 6.0 OS's (2xx) were 2-3 minutes. The OS's themselves were buggy as crap.

    As you see in my profile I have a Bold 9000 and 9780
    Reboot-Time with OS 4.6 on Bold 9000 took ages
    Reboot-Time with OS 5 on Bold 9000 was much faster (2-3 minutes)
    Reboot-Time with OS 6 on Bold 9780 is also around 2-3 minutes

    How much do you have running and how many apps do you have?

    Also, seems like it's the vzw devices that take the longest... 96XX and the storms...
