I have a BB9790 that I have been using since the last 11 months. Though the features are good, but I am not happy with its performance. In just about 5-6 months of its use, my BB started acting up and has just gone from bad to worse....Let me jot down the issues that I have been facing and perhaps someone can guide me on the reason for these issues and how I can get them resolved
1) The phone keeps rebooting practically 5-6 (minimum) times in a day
2) Sometimes with sufficient battery power, I get the message "Not enough battery for radio use" and it shuts down the network. Though the phone is still on
3) The base (near the battery compartment) heats up slightly if I am using multiple applications
4) Lag in switching from one application to another
Any guidance to get these resolved would be highly appreciated

your post has remembered me the nightmare with my old 8100 Pearl: same issues.
I've solved sending it to assistance, try it immediately since i see your guarantee is going to expire...

The first thing to do is a battery pull. This will clear your phone's cache of any unwanted items that may be getting in the way of your phone's operation. To do a proper battery pull, remove your battery while your phone is powered on then replace it.
Next, if the battery pull doesn't work, reload your phone's OS. To do this, plug your phone in to your PC and open BlackBerry Desktop Software. If you don't have it installed on your PC, find it at www.blackberry.com/desktop . Once BDS is opened, click Device at the top of the software then Restore. Choose the most recent restore point and load it.
Try those two suggestions and post back with your results.

Hey BillJ...thanks for ur suggestion.....much appreciated.
Though I went with Lwizard's suggestion......went to Service Centre. They had the software reloaded, unfortunately thought that did not solve the problem. So my phone is being sent back to a different Service Center for a resolution. I am right now without my BB :-( for the next approx 10 days...... Everyone please pray for my phone's health :-)

Hey Lwizard.......your prayer worked
Its been a little over 2 weeks now that Ive got by BB back from the service center and not a single reboot.... though ofcourse from my end too.... I havent uploaded any 3rd party applications on it (apart from Whats App)
There is one more challenge that I am facing...
The service center, I believe, has reflashed my BB and the map application was not working as per my expectation.... all I could see whenever I ran the Maps was a dot, but cldnt see any location. So I got fed up and deleted the application, with the hope that I'll be able to reinstall it again. When I tried to do it through the Blackberry App World, I couldnt find it. I mean I found a lot of map applications, but there was a charge (money) attached to it and obviously like any other loyal, tenured and demanding consumer......... I want it free
Then I ran through some forums and was made to understand, that I can reinstall it through the Blackberry Desktop Software. So that's what I am gonna try in a couple of days.
Just wanted to check with everyone present here...........any other ideas or suggestions you have for me ???
