    Question Mysterious happenings! BlackBerry in distress! RIM, You've got some splainin' to do!!

    Advertisement



    Ok, so, I did my weekly back-up yesterday, and I changed my theme to the test version of the (RED) theme (from desktop manager). Theme wasn't right, so I deleted it, and made some changes to a memopad document. Then backed-up again. I switched to my normal Vista theme, and I noticed my home screen icons were not right. I didn't know what was wrong, so I scrolled all the way down and then up. I realized that 2 of the 4 icons for email accounts on my bb were missing. The msgs were still on it, but the icon for that specific email was gone.

    After a couple of minutes the in/out arrows in the right hand corner showed up and the icons showed up. Strange!!! Is our stuff somewhere at RIM? on a server maybe? Possible to be hacked the same way YOU KNOW WHOS (El Stupido) Sidekick II (Ewww... goosebumps... stupid toy!) got hacked?


    A couple of days before, a couple of people on my bb msngr said they had problems with their bb msngr contact list. One person said that after my name was the state that I live in. WI. I didn't put that. He also said other things that I can't remember. I have also seen problems with peoples name in the bb msngr contact list vs. the actual conversation. i.e., their name in the contact list one thing, in the convo another one, and when they left it something else. This only happened for people who changed their name during the convo I guess.


    Now, today! When I type a bb msngr msg, it shows up twice, as if someone else with my same name did it at the same time. My msg is blue, then the copy is red. Thats normal, but just to let people know I didn't send the msg twice or anything.

    And one other thing. A guy on my contact list has the "is typing a messsege" icon next to his name. No convo with him. Not even a group one.

    There's a (hopefully) easy fix for this behavior. Back up your info once more in addition to your weekly backups. Then wipe and install the newest 8700g OS. Restore the backup and see what happens.

    delete and readd the dood on your bbm list, or send him a message. it will go away.

    as for the theme switching and icons coming and going, i've noticed that recently with switching back and forth...the icons/service books come back. im not sure of the why (i think its just a slow change, because all themes are different)

    ::edit:: and a battery pull will fix bbm overload...no need to update any OS just yet.
