I recentrly upgraded to the Tmobile BB Bold 9700 and i have had some issues with the phone freezing. It became especially frequent when using the BB as a modem thru the desktop software. I called Tmobile and had the phone replaced. When my new phone started to freeze I came to suspect all the apps I had downloaded and my hypothesis was confirmed correct. My Bold now runs like it should except for the slow 3G speeds. Has anyone listed apps which cause BBs to malfunction?
List of apps I used:
All Sports GPS
Game Demos (GH,Pac,NFS, TH, Brain, WheresW)
and some others...
I haven't had any issues with these apps specifically. Are you running the stock OS on the device?
The latest official OS thread can be found here and it appears the newest official is 188.8.131.522. While it's likely not for your carrier, it will work and may alleviate your problems.
Have you installed any new custom themes lately? If the build on a themes isnt tweaked out right, it can reek havoc on your device. I quit running custom themes when I got this 9700 and I have no issues at all, and I have about 15 apps.

184.108.40.2060 is a very stable OS... you should not have issues with that OS... my wife is still using that one.
If it was me, I'd backup my data and settings with DM (good to do on a regular basis anyways), and I'd backup my 3rd party apps using the link in my signature... then start removing a few at a time and reboot your device after just to make sure things are fairly clean... see if you can pin down which app is causing you the most problems... then you can always reload the apps afterwards by using the 2nd part of 3rd party apps backup procedure... at least that is what I'd do.
