    Might be low memory. What is your file free under options/status ? Also take a look at this http://forums.crackberry.com/f3/how-...-memory-34633/

    There are several threads on this. There is some kind of flukey thing with Facebook (yes, even if you've had it on there forever). You probably arent' receiving email either. Uninstall Facebook, restart your phone. After everything is back to normal and all your emails come back, you can safely reinstall Facebook.

    Hello again.. I have removed the facebook application (I have not re-downloaded it) and I am still getting the hour glass constantly. Any more suggestions. Thanks for the help.

    Did you do a battery pull afterwards?

    Another thing to try...do you have AOL mail coming to your phone? AOL recently updated and made it so that instead of the regular BB mail envelope, it has a green envelope that says AOL on it. If you have AOL, go into your BIS and delete the email address and then re-add it.

    Mine did that and it was because I had too much stuff on my blackberry (low memory). I deleted things I didn't use as often and the hour glass went away. Hope this helps!

    Thank you all for the help. I got the hour glass situations resolved. It was a combination of facebook and to many apps.. I had a media card, but for some reason my pics/videos wernt saving on it, but I figured out how to move them all on the card. It freed up a lot of memory. Thanks again for all of your help.
