Re: Uncaught exception error

Have you tried resetting the device yet? While the device is powered on, just take out the battery for 1 minute and replace it.  The BlackBerry will reboot itself. try it afterwards

Re: Uncaught exception error

No luck, the error even popped up after rebooting without me pressing anything...

Re: Uncaught exception error

OK. That error means that usually there's a corrupt entry in whatever screen you're trying to access (in your case your SMS messages). You may end up having to reload the OS on your phone. Before doing that though try clearing your Messages database by following these steps:

 

  1. Open BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
  2. Click Backup and Restore, and select Advanced.
  3. From the Handheld Databases list on the right side, select Messages.
  4. Click Clear. Go back to the BlackBerry Desktop Manager window.
NOTE - doing so will erase all messages from your device.

OK. Well glad that it's fixed. By the way the quickest way to wipe the device is by going to Options | Security Options | General Settings, display the menu, and choose Wipe Handheld.
