    Ok 1st of all I'm a total newbie. Ie.1 month but, I actually might be able to suggest something and might be able to help in the tiniest of ways...I'm so excited to finally be able to contribute anything.(I'm in texas also) in the last 5 days my bb has done this 2 times..(.so stressful) did it give you any error code? Mine gave a java error code of 102.unfortunatley I had downloaded a game called breeders cup and I had to reset my blackberry 2 times. I lost my address book and everything! The 2nd time I learned my lesson and back up all my info on desktop manager! Duh I should of done that after 1st time. These pinstackers will come to the rescue..they are like BB gods! Haha goodluck! Lesa

    lesa, thanks for relating your experience. Yes, the best advice. Always backup your BB before Installing any App or Theme. And a bad experience will teach that lesson, won't it. Sorry you had to go through it though.

    Interesting, Breeders Cup is a magmic game. I have had issues with transferring their games from my PC to BB, twice necessitating a complete OS reload. Others have reported similar problems. Would it be possible (Hayden?) either to run a thread on this topic and distill the data for transmission to magmic OR for a StackPro to contact them for a response? Rcbjr, you're online, what do you think?

    jamesTx! it might be useful if you start a new thread for a new topic. Otherwise we end up with just one VERY long thread ~;-)

    james, As your last post is provided in response to some of the advice given earlier, it is not necessary or appropriate to start a new thread. I consider it just more information in trying to get you back up and running on this problem. While it's not specifically related to the cause of the BB error, it has to be corrected before you can complete the troubleshooting. What problem is PocketMac giving you when trying to install it.

    giamburrasca, I haven't run too many Magmic games, but the ones I have, haven't given me a problem. It might be appropriate to start a thread in the third party Apps forum if you feel it's a wide spread problem. That way we could get a feel for just how wide spread a problem this is.

    Feel free to start one, I'm sure it would be all right.

    I'm not familiar with PocketMac, so can't really help. Let me see what we can do to get this solved.

    o.k. had no luck with pocketmac... went to a friends house with DM and it didn't recognize my device, although my PIN number came up. i read the other threads for device recognition and still no dice. Then his PC freaked out and he blamed it on me. Do I have a new paperweight? I'm thinking of sending it somewhere but I don't want to put a bunch of money down and have the same results. Could this have anything to do with downloading Google maps the day before this all happened? I hate to admit I'm losing hope.
