    Question Blackberry 8700c Shuts Off


    I have a used blackberry 8700c from Cingular. It had some problems with ist shutting off starting a couple days ago. I figured it could be the Operating System. I had 4.5 os on it and didn't know that if the Blackberry couldn't handle it. I used JL_CMDER on it and restored it to the original os I got it in, 4.1. The next day, I was using it to put in some contacts and the device just shut off while I was writing. Then I experience it when I create a new calendar event sometimes and sometimes when I am writing a contact. It doesn't happen every time though. Now it has gotten so bad that when it shuts off and I have to battery pull, I have to wait at least 15 minutes to 30 minutes before I pull the battery. When it has the hourglass, it will shut off before starting up all the way and I have to wait before a battery pull then. Should I just get a new (used) device? It would be probably an ebay device because I don't have much money. I have used JL_CMDER on it a couple times since and there has been no difference in the shutting down.

    Get a new Berry bro. There's plenty of reasonable ones here in the marketplace,and most stackers here have a good reputation for the most part, so you really wouldn't have to worry about getting jerked. As always-just my opinion! Good luck!

    Thumbs up Blackberry 8700c Shuts Off

    I have a Blackberry 8700g that was giving me the same issue with turning off I recently purchased a new battery on ebay and it corrected the problem The battery that I started out with would charge fine but i noticed that the battery was thicker than my older blackberry CS-2 battery in both phones My phone would cut off when the battery depleted to 90% I would suggest getting an extended battery if you do purchase one I have went three days before I have had to charge Extended battery and Battery Door can be found on ebay for 15.00 USD and it comes with a six month warranty and a 30 day money back garuntee If the issue was your phone it would cut off when you use it with it plugged up charging

    Sometimes updating the OS helps with the issues...

    I had the same problem with my 8310. I worked out the problem was when I tried to update it I still had the memory card in the phone. To remedy this I had to remove the memory card then save all the content off my memory card. Re-update the phone and then replace the memory card and reformat it. Since then I have had no problems. I hope this helps in ur case.
