    What Operating System are you running there have been a few issues I have read about in other threads with programs causing this after upgrades.

    Is this happening when you are running any programs? I know I've had a few that acted up like that, seems to be issues with the programs themselves, and also when I tried to load pictures, but after cleaning some up so I didn't have as many on my sd it worked better.

    i would recommend cleaning your memory, to do this go in your BB menu > options > Security settings > memory cleaning > "leave disabled" but click the blackberry butten, and select "Clean now" this will clean up your phone, and have it running tip-top shape again, Also clearning your Browsers cache is a good thing to do once in a while

    P.S: this wont remove contacts or anything its very safe, it basically defags your phone like you would do with a computer

    Looking like you may want to reinstall your OS. I wouldnt upgrade unless you are comfortable with it but you can go here and just reinstall your original unless there is a newer version for yout device then I would upgrade to whatever the newest is.
