Hello Brideauk,


Welcome to the forums. 


Sorry to hear about your issue. This could be related to low memory. How much free app memory do you have? To check how much free memory is remaining have a look at this article: 


How to check the amount of free space available on a BlackBerry smartphone


If you are running low on memory have a look at this link for ways to increase your free memory: 


How to maximize battery life and free memory on the BlackBerry smartphone


Hope this helps, have a good day.
