Problem Receiving SMS with Blackberry locked
Just noticed this very odd problem, done a few tests and it definately appears to be happening. Quite often if I have received a long text message over 160 characters I get the message separated into a few messages with * some text missing * in.
I have read quite often this is network related, memory related etc... done all of this, and never used to have this problem on same network or phone before BUT noticed when testing it was ok.
What I have discovered is if the blackberry is locked then it will mess up SMSes, yet leave it unlocked and it works fine, it will appear as one message, tested this several times as I couldn't believe it myself!!
Anyone else noticed this?
It's an unlocked Vodafone v22.214.171.124 (126.96.36.199)
So I can not lock the phone, this will solve the problem but not ideal at all... my other thinking is actually rolling back to previous Vodafone software or try as I did with my 8700g and try something else :-)
Would be interested to know if anyone has any suggestions, I know it does sound odd but after lots and lots of testing this is definately what is happens!!
Sorted out the problem in the end, after rolling back software this didn't work but tracked it down to Content Protection, I disabled this and it solves the problem? - a possible bug?
Did you try changing themes first before rolling back your OS?

This is when I came across Content protection when I enabled this on any theme it immediately gave me the message problem while locked, so for now I've updated to later version again and left this off for now, not sure if it's just a Vodafone software issue?
