    my phone service got cut off today, and i figured that if i couldnt use data, i could just use one of the many wifi networks at my school. however, every single time i tried to turn on my wifi my phone restarted. the screen went black, the indicator light was red for a few seconds- it just completely restarted. i even went to the wifi options and tried to detect wireless networks. it said "turning on wifi" and then it restarted again.

    i dont know why this is happening or how to fix it. any help would be much appreciated.

    sounds like you probably need to do a wipe and reinstall

    what do you mean by wipe and reinstall? i assume reinstall means my OS, but wont that wipe it anyway?

    simply reinstalling doesn't do a low end wipe, i have much better results when i wipe prior to installation (using bbsak (blackberry swiss army knife)) the newest os's are nice
