    Taking 15 Min to Restart?

    Advertisement



    Hello everyone, my problem is that whenever I need to do a restart or need to do a battery pull it takes almost 15 minutes to fully load up. I have timed it. Its really annoying because sometimes my unit will all of the sudden reboot for no apparant reason. Ill put it from the holster to check the time and its restarting. I don't know what is causing it to take this long to come back up. I do have a few programs on my blackberry, but not an exessive amount. I tried cleaning out the applications that I don't use. Didn't help. What I do have is a little over 8,000 SMS. I'm not sure if that's the reason. Why I have this many, I don't know. Anyway, sorry for the long post, but if anyone has any suggestions please let me know. Thank you for any help. I know that I can get answers here. Thank you. -Joe

    Try clearing out the texts by going to the SMS folder, scroll up to where the date shows, click on the menu and choose "Delete Prior". If that doesn't help, backup your phone, then wipe (using the Desktop Manager or Javaloader) and reload the OS. If that doesn't work, take it back and get it replaced. Your BB should take no longer than 5 minutes to boot up unless you are upgrading/reloading the OS which can take 20-30 minutes.

    One question LOL How in the world did you end up with 8000 texts? My 7100t started throwing Java errors when it hit 3000 LOL

    Edit: Mine takes about 1 minute to reboot normally.

    Or the other way to wipe the device (if you have this feature enabled to lock people out of your device who may be nosey) is to enter the device password incorrectly 10 times and it will wipe the device for you. This is the slow way to get it wiped.

    Thanks, I will try to clear all that out. The reason for 8000 texts is 1) I do text a lot (about 2500-3000 a month) and 2) I set it to keep forever cause I wanted to see how far back it would go. But now, I wanna try to get to 10,000 texts. I know, sounds stupid but I guess that's what's causing to long re-boot. When I 1st got it, it would take about 3 min which is better than my 7100t did. Thanks everyone

    You're welcome. I would not advise keeping so many texts as it will just keep causing the slow reboots. Like I said above, my 7100t started flipping out at 3000. I can't imagine what it would have done at 8000 or 10,000 texts.

    WOW 22 min??? Sounds like you might have to replace it soon cause that's just too slow. By the way, my Pearl crashed over the weekend while attempting to upgrade. Shut down completely. It took me all night to get it back up and running. Thought I was gonna have to send it in but I saved it. Let this be a warning that there are limits to these devices.
