I have had my 9860 for about 3 weeks now and ive noticed it freezes up so much! Everytime I open a contacts picture on BBM it freezes, When im on the internet browser it freezes everytime I click or change website, It freezes when it unlocks lol it just keeps freezing all the time!
I used to have a storm 9520 and this is my upgrade and I believed that as its got the new OS on it that it would be alot faster and more bug free but it so far seems that im mistaken!
I just want to know if I have ended up with a dodgy handset or if this is just how these new blackberrys are?
Just to be clear when I say it keeps freezing, I mean it locks up for between 10 - 60 seconds before finally coming back to life!
All in all I am just finding the phone very slow which is very disapointing as my dad has a HTC that is problem free, never seems to lock up and rather fast and the same goes for my friends with Iphones!
Any feed back would be much appreciated thanks!

Exactly the same problem here.
Good for 1-2 weeks. Then it freezes often. Then I upgraded the firmware and it would be good for a week or so. Then it freezes again. I am on the fourth firmware upgrade.
In the meantime, it looks like I may have to pull the battery twice a day instead of once a day!

Hello users, I have theh exact same problem, it freezes frequently for 10 - 60 secs, even with the clock sometimes, then reacts with a rush and with a cumulative of orders, then freezes again and so on. I though it was memory or the event log that was full, but no matter how many times I clear it, it's the same. It's an excellent device, but a recommend RIM to take action a bout this, because similar all touch devices do not suffer from this. If anyone knows what could it be, his info would be very appreciated.

On device go to Options, Device, Application Management is a great way to see what your apps are doing with your CPU usage on Smartphone. Just slide top bar to CPU and see what is going on. Also touch the CPU menu to see other time variables. I found out that an app was eating away CPU cycles on mine
Disable Compression on media card? go to Options, Device, Storage
using a custom theme? try it for a day the factory default one to rule out your theme
remember the esc key closes most apps, except for GPS and some chat clients. the other apps need to use menu and then exit or close. The farthest key to the right is a home key and does not close any apps per se but will end calls.

I am having this problem as well. My torch freezes every few minutes and it lasts very long sometimes, up to 30 seconds. What is the point of having this smart phone if I cant put music or use custom themes? Mind you I have no custom theme, no music and around 4 apps yet my phone keeps freezing. clearly there is a problem with this model phone. Sometimes when i am typing text msgs it freezes on one letter and by the time the phone comes back to life my autolock kicks in.
Since i have had this phone, around 8 months I have had to replace the battery and send it back to the dealer because it was not charging. Can someone please assist me, so I can get this $600 piece of equipment to do the basics like send a text message
