    Have you recently installed any new applications, made any changes or upgraded the Device OS?

    Let the battery drain? It could be anything wrong with your phone.

    well i took it to AT&T today and i asked one of the workers and he told me to empty my phone's event log and t would stop locking up and sure enough after about 10 hours it has not locked up once. i was even able to change my theme and home screen image(somthing that i could never due becuase it would lock up and sit there for about an hour then shut off)

    thanks for trying to help tho ^.^

    Ok if that was your problem do this:

    1. Hit Alt-LGLG

    2. Menu Key clear the log (this was probably what you did but we can take it ones step farther)

    3. Menu key again

    4. go into options

    5. menu again and click hide all types

    6. this should stop them from ever going into your event log

    I haven't had any problems at all with my 8110 but trying to download themes, can anyone tell me how to do it "ota"? I also did the alt-lglg and it works well to stop items from being appended to a log and causing locking problems!~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    OTA refers to over the air if you didnt know that...

    all you have to do is go to a specified site that has the .jar file of the app or theme you want.

    The easier way to find themes is to load them on using the DM...

    I think i got this all figured out.... you guys are like jocks for the BB, you see someone that might be new and then you use all the acronyms that 'you' 'think' they should know, then you make them feel 'dumb'.... anyhow, i got this all figured out, i know what the damn DM is and OTA and .JAR and how to extract the .ZIP files to access the .JAR files from themes and ringtones and wallpapers, thanks for all your support in making me feel dumber than I already did trying to figure out a device that has more capabilities than my sh*tty computer does, I appreciate all the help.....

    Thanks for the thread by the way beeshabo, helpful...
    Tilt is fun with WM 6.1, but not enough to kill the need for my nw iPhone 3Gs!!!

    Sorry if our acronyms catch you off guard. Sometimes we use them as we respond to many posts daily and try to cut down on typing. Don't ever worry about feeling dumb on these forums. There is no such thing as a dumb question. Never hesitate to ask for clarification on something you don't understand as we are all here to help eachother.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I had the same problem, its cause you try to get on sites that have un-supported scripts on the web pages. And it does not let them load correctly, or not even at all. I just let my phone sit and close all appz, within 30 mins it goes away. But if I'm really pressed, ill just remove the battery to reboot.

    Right now I just limit myself to wap, mobile, BB friendly sites.... For the meantime.
