Re: Uncaught exception: java.lang.NullPointerException

Uncaught exception: java.lang.​NullPointe​rException.

It seems this problems can't be solved unless reinstall the OS. Why BB have many problems? iPhone seems not. RIM is supposed to improve the technical level. Desperately I have to reinstall the OS and lose all applications installed. OH, god not help BB.

Re: Uncaught exception: java.lang.NullPointerException

for me none of the suggested solutions worked, basically the problem was the memory card , i removed the memory card and re booted the phone without the momery card and the problem was solved. hope its as easy for everyone else out there, its worth a try

1-login to WhatsApp -> Favorites -> Refresh Favorites ->(click on BB option) --> sort.


2-WhatsApp->setting->Media setting->Auto-save download media: ON
