2 Issues with Curve -- Camera and Application Connectivity

I'm having 2 issues with my Curve 8300.  I tried upgrading the SW to 4.5 but it didn't help.  Any ideas?


- The camera is no longer working.  When I try taking pictures, it saves a JPG file but the file to the assigned folder but the file is smaller than it should be (usually ~6KB) and it doesn't render as an image.


- I'm trying to use an application (the NYT Crossword Puzzle) but it gives me the error message "Unable to connect to the server.  Please try again later.", even though I do have connectivity for e-mail and web browsing.  I tried adjusting the application permissions in advanced settings but it didn't help.

Hi and welcome to the forums!

As far as the camera I would try the following:


No data will be lost when doing the following: pull the battery while the device is ON.

Replace after a minute, Let the device reboot 1-3 min, see if the problem is fixed, Thanks 


If that doesn't work I would suspect a low memory condition please read this link:




I do not have a definitive answer for the cross word. app. Could it be possible to test it off hours, to see if the servers at the NYT are in

fact busy?
