it doesn't happen everyday, but i have had the phone just reboot itself when using ... BlackBerry Tour forum
phone as modem - phone shuts off randomly
it doesn't happen everyday, but i have had the phone just reboot itself when using 'phone as modem' (6-8 times since July 16th). no phone calls are coming in and no messages (of any kind). the phone is connected through bluetooth as modem and powered through the computer. i run it probably 6 hrs a day as a modem.
anyone else have this issue?
no updates to speak of yet - fresh out of the box.
Mine does that also without using the phone as a modem. Today was the second time it did that in 2 weeks.
Popkorn...I don;t have an answer, but I would like to know the steps to using the Tour as a modem...PIN me or add me on BBM
Sad to say, but thats what a lot of peeps say about the storm. You might want to contact catside, he's the storm connoisseur, and he might can tell you about the latest OS upgrade.

here are the instructons for setting up the phone as modem.
i actually prefer the bluetooth method (dialup connection), but you can also download the Sprint Smartview software (used for the AirCards and works exactley the same) and run it through there interface.
Yes Sprint offers this service with (I believe) all their smartphones and a handful of the others.
My guess is the OS will need an update to fix the issue. I probably wouldn't mind it so much, but the long bootup on the Tour is what really kills.
Thanks for all the input guys.
Does it get really hot before that happens? My tour tends to get really hot and not respond to charging and about few min later show a white screen with a bunch of error codes in sections for a split second. I've been trying to snap a picture of it but never got it :/

petemoralez - i'm never holding it when it happens - it sits right below my monitor charging and i happen to see the red light come on out of the corner of my eye.
btw, it still reboots about 2-4 times a week when in 'phone as modem' mode. usually only once a day though.
Hi curious which Smartview software will work for the 9630 ??? Which Aircard software do I need to download ?
Is it fRiDay Y3t ?
