I have to remove the battery in my BlackBerry Bold every 3 weeks or so otherwise it bugs out!
Posted on 2009-02-12
I have a BlackBerry Bold that works lovely for the most part. Awesome smart-phone. I never turn my phone off, I just plug it in by my bed side every night, allow it to go into bedside mode and start my day.
Now every so often, when I try to compose an SMS message, and I start typing a name that is in my Contacts, it does not search for the names! Normally, as soon as I start typing it will start searching as I type (I guess it is indexed) for names that match the letters I am typing. It is very annoying when this feature stops working. Another thing, when it starts behaving like this, I can't just start typing the names on the home page to make a phone call either. It just does not find anybody. To fix this problem, I have to remove the battery to kill all power to the phone completely and then put it back in. Powering off the unit by pressing the power button does not fix it. It does not seem to totally turn it off. Does anybody know what can be causing this or what I can do to fix it? It seems to happen every 3 weeks or so. SO I am guess it is like a Windows computer that after having a long up time it just starts to bug out for whatever reason.. Any feedback would be appreciated.
