    Question Bold 9700 boot time

    Advertisement



    I realize that others have commented on the extraordinarily long boot time for the 9700. I'm just wondering if anyone's heard if there's a fix. What seems to be RIM's problem with BB boot times? Is this due to an aging OS; something endemic to Bolds; or something else? I'd appreciate hearing if someone has a pretty-good sense of what's going on here.

    When I start looking at other phones, e.g., droid specifically, I know that I'm getting restless, and tired of a stable, but boring RIM OS. Right now I use my BB for business-related tasks; however, if I want something more interesting, I move over to an iTouch w/wifi. I'd love to hear some thoughts on this and what, if any, solutions some of you have found to the BB versus iPhone conundrum. I know the iPhone has it's own set of problems, but if they ever do multi-tasking and a removable battery...bye bye RIM...and one day, I hope, goodbye AT&T. Thanks.

    The boot time is just horrible on the 9700. I used to own one and you're abosolutely right. My desktop starts a lot faster than that phone. I used to sit there and stare at that bootup screenfor three to five minutes. I wanted to throw that thug out the window so bad. My phone now boots in less than twebty seconds and I'm amazed. What was I thinking? But that's jut me. To each it's own, really. Good luck bro

    If you think the 9700 boot time is bad, try a 9000. 9700-3 to 4 mins. 9000-6 to 7 minutes.

    ...whatever time it takes, it's a good clean up. For that I'm ok with it. Battery pulls are not an issue, and the only time I waste with reboot is because I had to delete an application that I shouldn't have downloaded in the first place !

    The other thing is you can set quick pull up to do your battery pull at a time when you would not be using your phone and there is no issue at all.

    How often are you rebooting?

    I only reboot maybe once a week...I don't find it that big a deal?
