I've resently upgraded whatsapp on BlackBerry Touch 9800 and ever since then, I cannot retrieve pictures... And it makes my phone slow. It gives me error messages such as, " download failed: fileIOExecption: file system error (6)"

Re: whatsapp freezes

Would you check that it will apperror523 or something else. Because in black berry most of the time apperror523 occurs while installing new apps.

Re: whatsapp freezes

App Error 523 would disable the BlackBerry completely and he would certainly know it.


Just delete WhatsApp from the device, reboot the BlackBerry and re-install the application, and then see how it performs.
