    Hour Glass of Dooom?!!!?

    Advertisement



    Hi all...

    My BB seems to be freezing up on me. I get an hour glass that won't go away until I pull the battery... and then I can only use it for about 5 minutes before it freezes up on me again.

    I've pulled the battery a dozen times this morning and it continues to give me the dreaded hour glass of doom.

    I reloaded my OS last night and still no luck.

    Any suggestions?

    I don't think I can make it the whole day without my BB.

    How much memory do you have left on your BB? Sometimes when I'm low on memory I get the hour glass alot.

    Maybe I'm not a bb expert but you should try deleting some things that you don't use (3rd part apps/themes/msges)

    I use .108 and i have tons of apps/themes and other crap and my phone it never froze or even works slower.

    When I had a problem with mine I rolled back the OS to I think .107.
    I loaded just the OS and nothing else and built it up from there.
    Was a pain but got it back. Had to do the old battery out trick to get the old OS to load.

    Good luck

    Natasha, try putting a new OS,
    i see that you are running .94 ( that is what shows on your profile)
    try upgrading to .107

    and deleting unused apps would help too
