    Is there something you are doing that causes this? Did you install a new program recently? Or a theme?

    Hi del.jones, welcome to pinstack. Try to delete all unwanted information, applications, ringers, etc from your BB. Maybe you are eating up alot of space and need to freshen it up.

    I have not added any new ringers to the 7100 or anything esle . All the applications & programs are the same ones that come with the unit out of the box from T-mobile.

    Re: 7100 always rebooting up or resetting

    Well, the boot time really doesn't surprise me. They vary by device and what programs you have installed on it.

    It sounds as if something in your operating system has gone array and is corrupt and there is something that keeps kicking the power off.

    Faulty battery? Maybe, but I wouldn't think so.

    Did you let the battery drain all the way and shut off by chance?

    You may need to resort to a full wipe then reinstall of the OS on the device to get rid of whatever bug is causing the device to keep rebooting on its own.

    Hah..you are talking to the MASTERS of OS reloads here.

    You can do it all in less than an hour, easy.

    Just make sure that you download an operating system first before you go and do the reinstall.

    Also make sure that (if possible) you have or do a backup of your device first so that you don't lose any contact information and whatnot that you may have.

    If there is an applicable upgrade for your device also, now would be the time to do it.

    What OS version are you currently using?

    Also, not sure if you have the web address, but if you need an OS for it and want to use Tmobiles, go to www.t-mobile.com/bbupgrade.

    Oh yeah, and try not to let your battery drain down all the way.
