A user's blackberry will randomly lose connection with BES requiring the user to restart the phone. She can still text off the phone while it has lost connection to BES, so I know the phone has a signal.

What can cause this?  THanks!

Not sure of the cause but I have seen this before.

Have the user do a hard reboot (turn off the blackberry, remove the battery for 30 seconds and then replace it) and see if that takes care of the problem.

If still an issue try an update of the OS to the latest version.

What type of device is it?

it would help if you also gave us the BES version, Handset model and OS version.

that said, it sounds like they are losing the data connection on the handset, which allows only SMS and Phone calls.  Usually these issues are related to the user's sim card not connecting through the Blackberry APN service from your carrier.  A quick call to your carrier or dealer's tech support team can normally get this fixed.

It may also be an issue where the user passes by a dead-spot where EDGE/GPRS or 3G doesn't work, and the unit is not auto-reconnecting (can also happen sometimes with overseas travel).

This may be related to her Verizon coverage.

She should update her Blackberry Desktop manager software.

What is her device software? (Options>About)

I will have to investigate that when I have the device next.

You pointed me in the right direction. Thank you both for your help!
